Europe and Central Asia regional compendium
Gender equality is one of the most critical organizational priorities for UNICEF. It is embedded as a core part of UNICEF’s mandate to promote the realization of equal rights for all children. Gender is identified as a normative principle and a cross-cutting programming priority that supports UNICEF’s vision of leaving no one behind. UNICEF has continuously reaffirmed its commitment to gender equality and adolescent girl’s empowerment through a range of ambitious, evidence-driven, and rights-based policy documents, guidelines, and action plans. These documents - UNICEF Gender Policy 2021-2030, UNICEF Strategic Plan and Gender Action Plan (2022-2025) and UNICEF Adolescent Girl’s Strategy (2022-2025) represent the organization’s vision and commitment to continue strengthening and improving its work towards gender equality and adolescent girl’s empowerment.
