May 30, 2021

The achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires transformative shifts, integrated approaches, and new solutions, particularly when it comes to advancing gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. Efforts to address inequalities and their impact in different groups are key to accomplish the Agenda 2030, and all of them have very important gender implications.Gender equality is a fundamental human right and a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable Libya. Gender inequalities can impede progress towards achieving sustainable development. Hence, the response that we provide to help Libya achieve peace and stability must include women empowerment and gender equality at the center. The United Nations Development Programme in Libya is committed to providing the necessary tools to the national and local stakeholders in the country to ensure that legal, social, and economic barriers to women and girls empowerment are removed to pave the way for inclusive development, reduce poverty, build resilience, and achieve peace
