UN Women Asia and the Pacific illustrated annual report 2016–2017

It is a time of transformation in Asia and the Pacific. In 32 countries of the region, UN Women is joining women and men, governments, civil society groups, businesses and others in a common aim: gender equality.

The region’s vibrant economies and societies have produced historic advances in human well-being. Women have been central to these advances, as leaders of communities and countries, as workers and innovators, as advocates for peace and security.

In 2016 and 2017, as this report amply demonstrates, UN Women played an instrumental part in mobilizing people to step up efforts to achieve gender equality and contribute to other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the 2030 deadline. Our efforts gave women more voice, more choice and greater safety; they included women most marginalized in their societies.
