UN Women will focus on programmes that will provide technical, financial and opportunities for business development targeting women emerging entrepreneurs to own, manage and benefit from small medium and large enterprises in a profitable and sustainable manner. This will be through supporting the implementation of policies and strategies for women’s and young girls’ economic empowerment, strengthening the capacity of financial systems to empower young women and their allies, the capacity of women entrepreneurs to participate in and benefit from public procurements and private sector value chains, strengthening the capacity of public sector entities to make procurement systems more gender responsive and the capacity of the employers to adapt practices and policies that promote decent work and social protection policies for the vulnerable and marginalized populations, in line with Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP).
