UN Women Liberia Annual Report 2021
UN Women Liberia Annual Report for 2021 highlights activities and results of the organisation’s interventions in supporting the Government of Liberia and civil society organisations (CSOs) to promote gender equality and advance the rights of women and girls.
UN Women has worked strategically in Liberia since 2004. The organization works closely with the Government of Liberia through several line ministries, principal among which is the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP), as well other key government agencies and Departments. UN Women also collaborates with development partners, CSOs, women’s groups and other United Nations agencies to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). In line with its global mandate, the work of UN Women Liberia is built around four key pillars, which address the most pressing gender equality concerns for women and girls. These pillars are:
- Women’s political participation, leadership and gender-sensitive governance systems
- Women’s economic empowerment
- Ending violence against women and girls (EVAWG)
- Women, peace and security and humanitarian actions (WPSHA)
