Description and results

Description

This grant represents Canada’s institutional support to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). UNFPA uses these funds, along with those of other donors, to achieve its core mandate and functions. UNFPA’s mandate is to support countries in using population data for policies and programs that reduce poverty and ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect. UNFPA focuses on three main areas: reproductive health and rights, gender equality, and population and development strategies. Canada’s support to UNFPA contributes to greater access to reproductive health, development policies that take population dynamics into account, and improvements in the status of girls and women worldwide.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased priority on adolescents, especially on very young adolescent girls, in national development policies and programs, indicated by an increase in the number of countries (from 38 to 52) that have health, social and economic programs that reach out to adolescent girls at risk of child marriage; (2) advancements in gender equality, women’s and girls’ empowerment, and reproductive rights, including for the most vulnerable and marginalized women, adolescents and youth; and (3) strengthened national policies and international development agendas, indicated by an increase in the number of countries (from 15 to 48) that have implemented a population situation analysis to identify priorities and formulate policies and programs.

Results achieved

Results achieved in 2014 through the support of the Government of Canada and other international donors include: (1) 11.6 million adolescents were reached with sexual and reproductive health services; (2) 68% of programme countries have laws and policies that allow adolescents to access sexual and reproductive health services; (3) 41 programme countries have health, social and economic asset-building programmes that reach out to adolescent girls at risk of child marriage; (4) 52% of programme countries have a gender equality national action that includes reproductive rights with specific targets and national public budget allocations; (5) 54% of programme countries affected by a humanitarian crisis have a functioning inter-agency gender-based violence coordination body ; (6) and 31 countries implemented the population situation analysis to identify priorities and formulate policies and programmes.
