The United States has stated its full support for the UN Women’s Strategic Plan which is set to affect women globally as it believes that the plan offers a solid foundation to guide the organization’s work for the next three years.
In an issued statement, the USA noted that the Strategic Plan is a Plan for all women and girls in all their diversity. Keynotes show that it emphasizes women’s human rights and considers the diverse situations and concerns of women and girls worldwide.
According to the statement:
“The Plan’s core objectives – advancing women’s political and economic empowerment; eliminating violence against women; furthering the women, peace, and security agenda; and helping women in humanitarian crises – continue to resonate. It also addresses emerging challenges, notably COVID-19’s disproportionate effects on women and girls.
“We appreciate the Plan’s focus on organizational efficiency and effectiveness, including building partnerships; leveraging resources; promoting a results-driven business model; and strong monitoring, evaluation, and reporting mechanisms”
It is the wish of the United States that as member states and other stakeholders work towards the objectives of the Plan, it will significantly improve the situation of women and girls worldwide. In turn, this will result in safe, prosperous, and resilient communities and nations. It is to this that the United States commits to being a robust and helpful implementing partner.
