This report, the first of its kind, was initiated by the United Nations Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE), the single largest network of gender focal points in the UN system, in order to provide an overview of the UN system’s work on gender equality and the empowerment of women. It covers the period 2014-2019 and presents the collective findings of how 51 UN entities have supported the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in that period. It demonstrates overall growth in scope and strength in the work to build an enabling environment for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, including in the context of UN reforms. In addition, the UN system’s accountability for its work on gender equality has been harmonized and standardized to a very large extent with system-wide accountability frameworks in practice at both headquarters and country-team levels.
