A comprehensive and dynamic set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in Peace, Security, Humanitarian and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) settings is strengthened and translated into gender-responsive laws, policies, and institutions in West and Central Africa.

The regional office supported Chad to elaborate its first Nation Action Plan (NAP). A final version was produced and submitted by the Ministry of Gender to the office of the prime minister for an official adoption. The process was led by the Ministry of gender and a national multisectoral committee. UNWOMEN played a strategic role until its finalisation. UNWOMEN also supported Cote d'Ivoire to update its NAP and identify priorities for the two upcoming years. A three days workshop was organized under the leadership of the Ministry of gender and participants from governemental institutions and civil society organizations to validated key priorities and defined a coordination mechanism to garantee effective implementation of the NAP. Since UNWOMEN has become a full member of Interagency Standing Committee (IASC), was able to influence the policies, criterion and key documents such as strategies, action plans, into being more gender responsive, empowering women including Women Led Organizations as key actors and decision makers in the Humanitarian cycle. In relation to this, UNWOMEN now is conretely influencing the Humanitatian Country team in the different countries in the region with the introduction of gender policies, women empowement and localisation of Women Led Organizations , feminist, and organisation working on gender issues in the humanitarian sector. Including the regular production or development of gender assessment, gender alerts and gender rapide
