Gender-responsive policies and institutions
The Strategic Plan 2022-2025 will guide UN Women’s work for the next four years. With an eye toward the 2030 deadline to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, it details how UN Women will catalyse urgent and sustained action to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
The Strategic Plan is based on key findings from an extensive consultative process, drawing on lessons 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.

Seven systemic outcomes to achieve impact at scale
Since our inception, we have grounded our work, organized our teams, and measured our impact in four thematic areas. We also recognize that to address the root causes of gender inequality, we and our partners must increasingly take an intersectional approach – and that our initiatives may not always fall neatly into one of these categories. To achieve this, our new strategic plan identifies a series of systemic outcomes that we strive to achieve based on our thematic work, and which serve as the building blocks of a more gender-equal world.
