Description and results

Description

This grant represents Canada’s long-term institutional support (LTIS) to UN Women. This annual contribution by Canada is used to support the implementation of UN Women's mandate and its core functions. The contributions of all donors are publicized each year by the institution. Based on Canada’s annual LTIS contribution, it is consistently ranked among the top 15 donors to UN Women. UN Women's mandate is focused on eliminating discrimination against women and girls; empowering women; and achieving equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, and peace and security interventions. UN Women works to support global standards for gender equality and helps countries meet these standards by providing expertise and financial support.

Expected results

The expected results for this project as stated by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in its 2014-2017 strategic plan include: (1) women lead and participate in decision-making at all levels; (2) women, especially the poorest and most excluded, are economically empowered and benefit from development; (3) governance and national planning fully reflect accountability for gender equality commitments and priorities; (4) a comprehensive and dynamic set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment is in place and is applied through action by Governments and other stakeholders at all levels.
