About the Proposal

Gender and social norms shape women’s and girls’ voices, rights and decision-making power within their families and societies and expose them to harmful practices and violence.

UNFPA in the State works in partnership with the Directorate of Women Empowerment to address issues related to gender based discrimination and violence against women and girls. Further, UNFPA is working with the Directorate through CECOEDECON, its implementing partner, in developing a comprehensive multi-sectoral State Strategy and Action Plan to address Violence against Women and Girls (SSAP to address VAWG).
