OUR FOCUS

Gender Equality

Responding to crisis

Gender equality is critical to stabilization, early recovery, and ultimately, sustainable development. As such, it is an important component integrated into every project at UNDP Yemen. Gender equality is central to the work of UNDP at large, and to the entire UN system, and is reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as in the UNDP New Corporate Gender Strategy.

Effective stabilization and development requires inclusion of the entire population – not just half. Through its range of projects and gender equality initiatives, UNDP Yemen seeks to enable all citizens – including women, men, girls and boys – to realize their full potential, and bring about sustainable peace for all.
