Description

Background

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

The UN Women Cambodia Country Office (CCO) Strategic Note (SN) 2019-2023 focuses on three key priorities to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). The first priority is to strengthen government capacity and accountability to integrate international norms and commitments (CEDAW, SDGs, Beijing PfA, Sendai) into national legislative and regulatory frameworks, including supporting dialogue and CSO engagement in accountability for GEWE commitments. The second area of focus is Ending Violence Against Women where CCO’s focus includes creating an enabling environment to prevent, respond to and prosecute all forms of GBV as well as ensuring that marginalised women who experience violence, including women migrant workers, access services and protections. Thirdly, CCO works to enhance gender responsiveness in climate change action and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). A focus on empowerment, women’s leadership, challenging negative gender norms and leaving no one behind runs through the programme.

Globally, UN Women is also a lead agency to coordinate and mobilize resource for Generation Equality Campaign as a part of the celebrating 25th Anniversary of Beijing Platform for Action (BfA). It is expected that leveraging the potential of young women and civil society organizations would make a meaningful engagement with Beijing+25 anniversary campaign. Since 2020, UN Women in Cambodia has coordinated and supported to have transformative feminist movements the promote gender equality in Cambodia, including support for co-creation of Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) and BREAKTHROUGH that aim to nurture feminist transformative leadership to address negative social and gender norms as well as the on going LGBTQI plus movement through Loveisdiversity which has been running by a group of LBT Women Activists.

Safe and Fair (SAF) delivers technical assistance and support with the overall objective of making labour migration safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region. SAF engages with ASEAN Member States’ government authorities; ASEAN institutions; workers’ organizations; employers and recruitment agencies; civil society organizations; community-based organizations; families and communities; research institutions and academia, media networks, youth, and the general public and supports programming in ten countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam).

SAF works in close cooperation with governments and social partners to achieve three inter-linked objectives:

Specific objective 1: Women migrant workers are better protected by gender-sensitive labour migration governance frameworks;
Specific objective 2: Women migrant workers are less vulnerable to violence and trafficking and benefit from coordinated responsive quality services; and
Specific objective 3: Data, knowledge and attitudes on the rights and contributions of women migrant workers are improved.

The SAF project strategy mainstreams three cross-cutting topics: women’s voice and agency; rights-based approach; and broad engagement of stakeholders. The SAF Communications and Visibility Strategy ensures visibility, awareness raising and dialogue promotion on changing norms around violence against women throughout migration and strengthening rights-based approaches to safe and fair labour migration governance for women in the ASEAN region.
