UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
UN Women Sudan’s Strategic Note (SN) 2018-2023, aims "to consolidate efforts that contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment in Sudan". Key strategies for the implementation of the country programme include capacity building, advocacy, gender mainstreaming, evidence, information and data collection and the use of media to highlight and inform the general population of Sudan. The SN outlines the overall strategy and plan of action for the UN Women Sudan Country Office (CO) for the years 2018-2023 and includes an Integrated Results and Resources (IRRF) which combines the DRF and OEEF, with expected results and targets/ indicators/ baselines.
2022-2023 Annual Work Plan (AWP) of UN Women Sudan Country Office (Co) focuses on three mutually a) reinforcing priorities on enhancing women’s participation in climate resilient agriculture in rural, conflict, post-conflict and humanitarian contexts; b) strengthening women’s effective participation in Peace, Security and Humanitarian processes and c) strengthening women’s political participation and leadership as priority areas that UN Women will work on to contribute towards achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment in Sudan.
Within the women’s political participation and leadership priority area, UN Women is supporting structuring of the women movement to be equipped with operational entities and the development of common agenda. UN Women is also working with CSOs and women’s groups to strengthen accountability to gender equality in politics. Whist doing so, UN Women gives due consideration for young women and disadvantaged women to be active agents in the political participation and leadership domain.
