UNDP Yemen Gender Equality Strategy 2022-2025

May 7, 2024

This document outlines UNDP Yemen’s Country Office Gender Equality Strategy Update for the years 2022-2025 in linkage with previous strategic documents (2013-2015), (2017-2019) and (2019-2021). While it takes into consideration previous strategies, approaches and results, it also takes into consideration the current contextual factors, changes in stakeholder mapping and current programming and socioeconomic factors within the outlined period. UNDP’s global gender equality strategy is a key reference and guidance for the document.

The current Strategy covers the Fiscal Years of 2022 – 2025 which correspond to UNDPs corporate strategic plan and Gender Equality Strategy timeline. This timeline also coincides with UNDP Country Programme Document (CPD). The present Gender Equality Strategy is aligned with the vision, objectives and the content of the UNDP Strategic Plan and UNDP Gender Equality Strategy, as well as to national priorities. The approach to the implementation of the GES relies on learning and experience sharing, the engagement of men and boys in supporting gender equality advocacy and action, and working collaboratively with other actors, including specialized UN Agencies, donors, government, private sector, and Civil Society.

UNDP Yemen’s overall Strategic Plan proposes a series of signature solutions that are collectively designed to address development in Yemen. Signature solution 6: “Strengthen gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls” addresses the challenges that persist in addressing gender inequality in Yemen that manifests as the unequal distribution of various resources including access to basic needs, decision-making, opportunities, and rights. This solution will focus on promoting increased participation and empowerment of women across different sectors. Additionally, it focuses on the integration of gender markers so that they are cross-cutting with various organizational, national, and global approaches.
