ABOUT OUR WORK

Georgia Banner 2

UN Women entered Georgia in 2001 (as UNIFEM) with regional project Women for Conflict Prevention and Peace-building in the Southern Caucasus. In the early 2000 gender was a strong, sometimes the only entry point to encourage grassroots diplomacy and informal dialogue among conflict-torn communities. Following the August 2008 War a comprehensive needs assessment of internally displaced and conflict-affected women, informed interventions needed to address gender gaps in a humanitarian setting. The empowerment and active involvement of conflict-affected women in post-conflict situations became one of the key programmatic directions of UN Women in the years to come. Following the implementation of a new architecture of the Entity, UN Women established a full-fledged Country Office presence in Georgia in 2013.

Current UN Women interventions aim at provision of support to the state and non-state partners towards the achievement of substantive gender equality in Georgia. In line with national and international commitments, UN Women works on the levels of policies and legislation, institutions and grassroots, in order to achieve transformative results for increased gender equality and greater protection of the rights of women and girls.

UN Women puts special emphasis on the work towards Ending Violence Against Women, promotion and support to Women, Peace, and Securityagenda in Georgia,Economic Empowerment of Women and last but not least, Mainstreaming of Gender into National Planning and Budgeting Processes.  Along with these key priority areas that constitute UN Women mandate, UN Women interventions in Georgia are anchored in the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) with the government of Georgia.
