Gender equality

 A reality

Making gender equality a reality is a core commitment of UNDP. UNDP recognizes that women empowerment and gender equality is vital to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which envisions a world of universal respect for human rights and human dignity in which every woman and girl enjoys full gender equality and all legal, social and economic barriers to their empowerment have been removed. UNDP in Kyrgyzstan integrates gender equality principles across its all areas of work: sustainable development, democratic governance and peacebuilding, climate and disaster resilience. To success UNDP works with the government, civil society and local communities.
