UN Women humanitarian strategy (2022–2025) in brief

This publication provides an overview of UN Women’s commitments to the humanitarian community guided by the “UN Women strategic plan 2022–2025”. It highlights areas where UN Women has a unique advantage in advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls across the humanitarian–development–peace nexus, and in contributing to the Inter-Agency Standing Committee priorities, including localization and accountability to affected people.

The strategy adopts a two-pronged approach:

  • strengthening accountability towards gender commitments in coordination and implementation of UN-led humanitarian and refugee responses, and
  • strengthening comprehensive protection and livelihoods support to crisis-affected women and girls.

While taking these approaches, UN Women prioritizes amplifying women’s voices, leadership, and agency as a critical and enabling cross-cutting area.
