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.
The newly adopted “Regional Framework Towards Peaceful, Inclusive Societies: Advancing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda and Inclusive Governance in the Asia Pacific Region (2023-2027)” lays out the direction of UN Women’s Governance, Peace and Security (GPS) portfolio in Asia-Pacific. The Framework has a dual focus on the advancement of the Women Peace and Security (WPS) agenda and inclusive governance in the region. The WPS component spans the support to the development and implementation of WPS National Action Plans (NAPs); conflict prevention, building peace and resilience; prevention of violent extremism; and women’s participation and leadership in emerging or non-traditional security issues such as climate security, cybersecurity and digital peacebuilding. The Inclusive Governance component comprises women’s access to justice; gender-responsive budgeting; and promotion of women’s leadership, including women’s political participation.
