Gender equality is crucial to sustainable development.      At UNECE, we are committed to assist the 56 countries of our region to make gender equality a reality. In line with our mandate as a Regional  Economic Commission, we focus on women’s economic empowerment which sets a direct path towards inclusive economic growth.

We work towards advancing the situation of women and men in the economies of our region through capacity building, policy dialogue and data collection. We mainstream gender equality within our own organisation and join forces with partners to achieve gender equality in the UNECE region.
