 UNDAF Cluster 2: Social Justice, Protection and Gender Equality

 UNDAF Cluster 2 Outcome:

“By 2015, PNG progresses towards becoming a more inclusive and equitable society where all citizens enjoy political, economic, and social rights, free from discrimination and irrespective of gender, ethnicity, or geographical isolation.”

In light of entrenched gender inequalities in PNG society, the UN will support women, men, girls, and boys to further access services, rights, resources, and decision-making processes without discrimination through equal participation and benefits from economic, political, and social development. Through programmes and processes, the UN will strengthen the capacity of GoPNG to fulfil and report on its gender-equality commitments. The UN will work with key institutions and communities to address the demands of gender equality through legal reforms that reinforce the implementation of laws, policies, and mechanisms to support women’s leadership, participation and influence in the development of PNG. Working with men and boys will be one approach.

To address women’s rights violations, the UN will support gender-sensitive national plans, budgets, and systems in selected sectors in law and justice, equal opportunity in the workplace, and social and health services to eliminate violence against women and promote peace and security in communities.
