UNDP Malawi deepens its commitment to preventing sexual harassment and the promotion of Gender Equality
In Malawi, UNDP is supporting the Government to use development resources effectively and accountably to achieve the objectives of the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy and attain the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.
Gender equality and women’s empowerment is the core of UNDP Malawi’s core work. The core objectives of the UNDP Malawi programme are to contribute to the reduction of poverty, inequality and vulnerability to shocks. These objectives are achieved by building more responsive and gender sensitive institutions and scaling up employment and sustainable inclusive livelihood opportunities
