Gender Theme Group

The UN in Armenia, the OSCE and other international development partners are committed to mainstream gender into their work and into Armenia’s development agenda.

The Gender Team therefore supports

·  Gender-responsive programming: mainstreaming gender throughout development and human rights work;

·  Dedicated efforts to increase the economic and political empowerment of women, and to support the development and implementation of legislation promoting action against discrimination, gender based violence and sexual harassment;

·  Dialogue between international development partners and with other development actors, and the development of common strategies, programmes and action plans;

·  Capacity development and promotion of deeper understanding and commitment to gender-responsive development programming;

·  Regular sharing of information and experience.
