UNiTE brings together a host of UN offices and agencies to end violence against women:
UNDP supports governments in the development of national strategies and development plans which are in line with international commitments on eliminating violence against women. Through multi-sectoral, targeted interventions, UNDP supports the capacity-building of policy makers, law enforcement agencies and communities to end gender-based violence. UNDP works on development of databases and sex-disaggregated data, so that there is necessary empirical evidence on gender-based violence to formulate accurate and targeted policy interventions. UNDP invests in counseling and legal services, mediation and rehabilitation, as well as micro-enterprise activities for survivors of gender-based violence. It also focuses on engaging men and boys as partners in the prevention of gender-based violence. By working with UN agencies and groups such as faith-based organizations, traditional leaders, civil society and the media, UNDP contributes to galvanizing action for ending gender-based violence. UNDP has produced the Human Development and Violence against Women study in Mexico, the joint Asia-Pacific regional programme of the UN System and its partners called “Partners for Prevention: Working with Boys and Men to Prevent Gender-Based Violence”, and the capacity-building project in Albania titled “Violence against women – no longer a family issue”.
