UNDP strives to ensure that women have a real voice in all governance institutions, from the judiciary to the civil service, as well as in the private sector and civil society, so they can participate equally with men in public dialogue and decision making. When women participate in decision-making there are benefits for women, men, children, communities and
nations.

UNDP works with its partners to promote women’s political participation in all governance institutions, strengthen women’s legal rights and access to justice, assist national partners to ensure that public services benefit women and men equitably, and enhance national capacities to reduce gender-based violence.
