About our work


UN Women is working closely with multi-stakeholders to promote and ensure gender equality and women’s empowerment, specifically in the areas of Women, Peace, and Security, Ending Gender-Based Violence, Access to Justice, and Women’s Economic Empowerment. Aligning its work with the UN Women’s triple mandate, the Philippines Project Office supports policy development and implementation at the national, regional, and local levels, opens platforms for conversation to initiate action among different development partners, and implements meaningful and impactful programming on the ground with support from community partners. In 2021, it extended its work on women’s economic empowerment through WeEmpowerAsia, raising awareness and engaging the private sector and businesses to promote gender-inclusive workplaces and responsive business practices.  In partnership with ILO and IOM, UN Women is supporting women migrant workers from recruitment to reintegration through the BRIDGE programme. It likewise expanded its programmes on ending gender-based violence through the Safe and Fair programme, ensuring access to services for women migrant workers and access to justice by building capacities of justice workers and supporting women in conflict with the law, as well as on women, peace, and security through various projects aimed at enhancing women’s leadership as peacebuilders and mediators.
