What we do
All human development and human rights issues have gender dimensions. UN Women focuses on priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality, and that can unlock progress across the board.
Gender equality in Moldova
Gender-sensitive Governance and Women’s Participation in Public Life
Women economic empowerment and resilience
Since 2015, UN Women has carried out the GirlsGoIT initiative to support and encourage women and girls in STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, including professional qualification and re-qualification digital programs. UN Women also supported the establishment of the first-ever Women Hubs, which offer co-working opportunities, networking and professional events.
Women, Peace and Security
The first National Action Plan (2018-2021) for the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) was developed and implemented with the support of UN Women. The Country Office is now assisting the Government in developing the second generation National Action Plan for the period 2023-2027.
Ending violence against women and girls
Ensuring the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus
In response to the refugee crisis in Moldova caused by the war in Ukraine, UN Women is co-chairing the Gender Task Force (GTF) jointly with the Platform for Gender Equality to ensure that gender perspective is integrated into the humanitarian action and that the different needs, priorities and capacities of women, girls, men and boys are addressed.
