UNDP supports a gender programme that gives opportunities to women to participate in economic and social life, and strengthens capacities of the government agencies to develop gender-sensitive policies. As part of the programme, UNDP organizes awareness campaigns to challenge stereotypes and socio-cultural practices that hinder implementation of women’s rights. Last but not least, UNDP seeks to incorporate gender dimension into its researches to identify women-specific concerns and recommend ways to address them.
