When different parts of the multilateral system act together, they can deliver greater results—and maximize the use of scarce resources. Within the UN system, UN Women is mandated to lead, promote and coordinate efforts to advance the full realization of women’s rights and opportunities. The UN General Assembly has called on all parts of the UN system to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women within their mandates, and ensure that commitments on paper lead to progress on the ground.

Towards these ends, UN Women helps strengthen effective UN action on the globalregional and national levels. We help bolster capacities to make achieving gender equality central to programmes and policies, advocate for greater resources, and guide and implement joint development programmes. We support measures upholding accountability for commitments to women, and have a key role in increasing knowledge about women’s status in the United Nations.

In the Republic of Moldova, UN Women engages with other UN entities through the UN Country Team and the Results Group established to coordinate the implementation of the UN – Republic of Moldova Partnership Framework 2013-2017 and the UN Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development 2018-2022. UN Women is chairing the UN Gender Theme Group and is active member of other inter-agency groups: SDG/Monitoring and Evaluation Group, Joint Communications Group, Operations Management Team, and others. Together with the Ministry of Health, Labour and Social Protection, UN Women is co-chairing the Coordination council of external assistance in the field of gender equality.

Delivering as One for gender equality

In a message, UN Women's Executive Director underlines the importance of gender mainstreaming at the country level, bolstered by the new Standard Operating Procedures for Delivering as One. She praises this UN model as a way to achieve tangible results for men and women, also building on UN Women’s system-wide role to promote coordinated action on gender equality and women’s empowerment – core aspects of the post-2015 global development agenda.
