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.

UN Women Ethiopia Country Office (ECO) Strategic Notes (SN) 2017-2020 and 2019 Annual Work Plan (AWP) focus on supporting the development objectives of the Ethiopia Growth and Transformation Plan II (2010/11-2014/15) in relation to Pillar 8 on equity and empowerment as well as being aligned with United Nations Development Assistance Framework (2016 – 2020).
