UN Women Liberia Annual Report 2020
UN Women Liberia Annual Report for 2020 highlights the work that was accomplished by the country office in 2020 and documents success stories achieved by the organisation and its implementing partners.
UN Women has worked strategically in Liberia since 2004. The organization works closely with the Government of Liberia through several line ministries that include the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP), the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP), the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Information, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of Labour and key government agencies as well as development partners, civil society organizations (CSOs), women’s groups and other UN agencies, to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE).
The work of the UN Women Liberia country office is built around five key pillars, which address the most pressing gender equality concerns for women and girls in Liberia. These are women’s political participation and leadership (WPPL); women’s economic empowerment (WEE); women, peace and security and humanitarian actions (WPS); ending violence against women and girls (EVAWG); and gender-responsive planning, policy and budgeting (GRPB). Through these pillars, UN Women plays a leading role in facilitating change.
