UNICEF Gender Action Plan Consultation

UNICEF Gender Action Plan Consultation

In response to gender-related challenges in Rwanda, and as a preparatory step in the development of the new Country Programme Document 2018-2023, UNICEF organised a consultative meeting to discuss global Gender Action Plan (GAP) 2018-2021 priorities and how to adapt them to the Rwandan context. The GAP specifies how UNICEF will promote gender equality across the organisation’s work in line with the UNICEF Strategic Plan 2018-2021.

The GAP also elaborates on gender dimensions related to programmatic results across the five goal areas of the Strategic Plan, as well as the steps to strengthen gender equality across change strategies and institutional systems and processes.
