Gender in UNDP Kosovo
Making gender equality a reality is a core commitment of UNDP. Equality between women and men is just another name for human rights which is used to ease development process. Gender inequality is an obstacle to human development and a violation of human rights. Gender discrimination is intimately entwined with endemic poverty, inequitable growth, and failures of governance.
Gender equality and women empowerment is a cross-cutting component which ensures in the UNDP office mainstreaming of the gender approaches in its programme delivery through analysis of UNDP publications and meetings to ensure mainstreaming with projects on a continual basis. UNDP Kosovo has been accelerating the integration of gender dimensions in all sectors and strengthening its performance in delivering for women and men.
