Women's Empowerment

Equality between women and men is not just a goal in itself: it is a precondition for the fulfilment of human rights and human development in general. The promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women is central to the mandate of UNDP and intrinsic to its development approach. This effort includes advocating for women’s and girls’ equal rights, combating discriminatory practices and challenging the roles and stereotypes that affect inequalities and exclusion. In Montenegro, we support the country to set up gender agenda with international frameworks (EU & UN) and national development priorities.

Our Goals

Our Goal is to support the country to fulfill its commitments towards achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment in the post-2015 development agenda, while mainstreaming gender equality into every aspect of UNDP’s work and leading by example.more
