UN Women Strategic Plan 2022–2025

The Strategic Plan 2022–2025 will guide UN Women for the next four years—with an eye toward the 2030 deadline to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It articulates how UN Women will leverage its unique triple mandate—encompassing normative support, UN system coordination, and operational activities—to mobilize urgent and sustained action to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls and support the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Strategic Plan is based on key findings from an extensive consultative process and draws from the analysis of lessons learned and recommendations from evaluations, audits, and other assessments, including those from the 25-year review and appraisal of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.

Given the interconnected nature of global challenges, UN Women will focus on integrated approaches with seven systemic outcomes to address the root causes of inequality and affect broader systems change, across its thematic focus areas:

  • governance and participation in public life;
  • women’s economic empowerment;
  • ending violence against women and girls; and
  • women, peace and security, humanitarian action, and disaster risk reduction.

The “Integrated results and resources framework” outlines the specific results that UN Women aims to achieve and their respective set of indicators.
