What We Do

Our role as UN Women Aotearoa New Zealand is to support UN Women through fundraising and advocacy of women's issues. The work of UN Women addresses the intersections between women's economic empowerment, safety and ending violence, leadership and participation, disaster preparedness and livelihoods.

Ending Violence

The Pacific region has some of the highest rates of violence against women recorded in the world. Our projects support the elimination of violence against women and girls.

Political Empowerment

UN Women encourages governments and businesses to achieve a quota of women in parliaments and the workforce, and in key management and decision-making positions.

Economic Empowerment

Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality,
poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth.

UN Women is committed to ensuring equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of humanitarian action.
