i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

UN System in West and Central African Region effectively, coherently and systematically contributes to progress on gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls (SP Outcome 7)

Technical Support provided to gender accountability frameworks by WCARO to UNCTs has repositioned UNWOMeN as a trustful partner for GEWE in the region in COs and in countries in which UNW is not present. Enhanced and continued accountability and commitment of senior leadership and RCs through UNCT SWAP Gender Score Cards across the region system. UN-SWAP, the UNCT-SWAP and the GEM allowed targeted improvements of gender commitments in Niger, Ghana, (GEM), as well as comprehensive new reports on the UNCT SWAP are available in Niger, Sao Tomé and Principe and Cabo Verde UNCTs. Processes launched in CAR, Togo and Benin. As a result, increased partnership has been enhanced and national accountability mechanisms created or redynamised in Guinea, Senegal, DRC and Niger in which RCs have been able to lead discussions on the establishment of a coordination/concertation mechanism for partners working on gender equality and liase with EU, bilateral partners and the government to increase fuds, lead joint programmes. At the country level, thanks to WCARO support, gender focal points of GTGs in 10 countries in WCA have strenghen capacities in gender mainstreaming. GTGs TORs and action plans are aligned with international standards in CIV, DRC, Niger, Liberia, Nigeria, CAR, Mali, Senegal, Cameroon, and Sierra Leone including in humanitarian settings working close with HCTs ( DRC, Niger and CAR as well as the Gambia and Cabo Verde as NRAs). The cross regional event on the roll out on the Standards and Procedures with gender focal points from RCOs and COs from ESAR ROAS and WCAR was a channel to sharing of challenges, lessons learned and best practices of GTGs in advancing GEWE commitments on planning, parternships, financing coordination, monitoring and evaluating GEWE. PPT MERGING SESSION 1 and 2 - 13DEC22-revised version 15 Dec 22.pptx Coordinated approach of WCARO with DCO as PSG member allowed to strengthening gender analysis, gender programming and gender mainstreaming in more than 12 UNSDCF and CCAs in the region throughout virtual/in-person strategic prioritization support on UNSDCF guidance and key UN Programming Principles in The Gambia, Senegal, Mauritania, Madagascar, Togo, CAR, Niger, Ghana, Cabo Verde, Burkina Faso, Benin, Nigeria, Gabon, Sao Tomé and Principe, Mauritania, Senegal and Madagascar. As a result Niger and Cameroon have stand alone outcomes on Gender equality and integrated a twin-track approach to gender in the UNSDCF. Ghana, Cabo Verde are visible gender responsive, Sao Tomé e Principe has increased the gender lens in its analysis. C ross and inter regional and intergovernamental dialogue and partnerships were enhanced through WCARO positioning as R GTG CHair for WCA. The Africa Strategy 2.0 is available and constitutes a concrete outcome and strong position paper on strategies and positioning on GEWE in the continent. ESARO WCARO, Liaison Office and Arab States worked closed with African Union in order to repositioning continental and global agendas using a strong women’s movement speaking with one voice on African women’s priorities and as an opportunity for UN Women to deliver on Agenda 2063 and accelerate the delivery of the SDGs.
