UN Women has worked strategically in Liberia since 2004. The organization works closely with the Government of Liberia through several line ministries. Principal among these ministries is the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP), as well other key government agencies and departments.
UN Women also collaborates with development partners, civil society organizations (CSOs), women’s groups and other United Nations agencies to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE).
In line with its global mandate, the work of UN Women Liberia is built around four key pillars, which address the most pressing gender equality concerns for women and girls.
These pillars are:
1 - UN Women also has ongoing partnerships with the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning and the ministries of Justice, National Defense, Internal Affairs, Agriculture, Information, Commerce and Industry, and Labour.
2 - The Country Gender Equality Profile drew support from UN Women, UNICEF, UNDP, OHCHR and UNFPA.
3 - Women’s political participation, leadership and gender-sensitive governance systems
4- Women’s economic empowerment • Ending violence against women and girls (EVAWG) • Women, peace and security and humanitarian actions (WPSHA)
