ABOUT OUR WORK

about

South Sudan has experienced several civil conflicts since its independence in 2011. In 2018, the country signed the revitalized peace agreement that provides new entry points for the incorporation of women’s rights and gender provisions, including an increased affirmative action quota for women’s representation at all levels of government from 25 to 35%. As this is a fragile, emerging state, the UN Women South Sudan Country Office (SSCO) supports the implementation of norms, policies and standards to set the foundation for gender inclusive peacebuilding, post-conflict reconstruction and transitional justice. Additionally, the SSCO works with key partners such as government, women leaders, women-led organizations, civil society and UN agencies to promote women, peace and security, gender in humanitarian action, women’s economic empowerment, and the ending of violence against women. The SSCO also plays a critical role in UN coordination of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
