There is no single understanding of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The meaning, implication and reality of these terms can change throughout different languages, cultures, and time periods.
This Strategy is a product of UNDP Rwanda’s stance on gender equality and women’s empowerment. Through collaboration with government, national actors, local and foreign entities, and others, our Country Office (CO) continues to work toward the goals relevant to Rwandan women and men.
2017 was another year of commitment and hard work alongside our partners to help Rwanda achieve its goals for equitable and sustainable development. This publication outlines some of the key achievements from the year.
The report talks in brief about the results produced by UNDP projects in 2017. It is a celebration of the great partnership between our staff, who have worked very hard; our donors, who provided the funding; and our Implementing Partners, who executed the activities.
Promoting Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in programmes and projects is a priority for UNDP in Rwanda. Equally important, UNDP Rwanda strives to ensure gender parity, empowerment, and equal opportunities for all its staff, women and men. This applies to all areas of our office.
Rwanda is among eight pilot countries selected in January 2007 to implement the One UN Reform , which enables the UN System to provide a more effective and coherent response to the needs of the Government of Rwanda and its Development Partners. As part of the UN Country Team, UNDP works with other sister agencies to implement the “One UN – Delivering as One” process. UNDP-Rwanda’s programmes and activities respond to the challenges facing the country to achieve its own short and long term goals.
