UN Women Asia and the Pacific Annual Report 2017-2018

UN Women supports United Nations Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender
equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and
services needed to implement these standards. It stands behind women’s equal participation in all
aspects of life, focusing on five priority areas: increasing women’s leadership and participation;
ending violence against women; engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes;
enhancing women's economic empowerment; and making gender equality central to national development
planning and budgeting. UN Women also coordinates and promotes the United Nations system’s work in
advancing gender equality.
