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.

 

UN Women’s goal in Timor-Leste is to promote women’s human rights and gender equality as the country works towards sustaining and furthering achievements in stability and development. In this regard, its programming in the country is connected to two corporate priority areas: enhancing women’s economic empowerment (WEE), and engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes (WPS), supported by integrated efforts to ensure gender-sensitive plans and budgets and women’s right to live free of violence. UN Women also coordinates and promotes the UN system’s joint work in advancing gender equality.

 

To address the global challenges of VAWG, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations have partnered on a new multi-year programme, the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative. The Spotlight Initiative aims to support transformative change on the ground to end violence against women and girls. The overall vision of the Spotlight Initiative in Timor-Leste is that women and girls enjoy their right to a life free of violence, within an inclusive and gender equitable Timor-Leste. This includes integrating the principle of “Leave No One Behind”, and recognition that people from marginalized groups may not have their needs and voices included in many processes. The programme is aligned to the Timor-Leste “National Action Plan on Gender-based violence (2017-2021) and National SDG Roadmap, particularly on SDGs 5 and 16.  It also seeks to support implementation of the Essential Services Package for Women and Girls Subject to Violence. It will contribute to the National Strategic Development Plan and reinforce Timor-Leste’s Development Plan and reinforce Timor-Leste’s implementation of commitments under the Beijing Platform for Action, the Concluding Observations of the CEDAW Committee, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, among other international obligations. 

 

In completing the efforts of EVAWG, a four- years Joint UN-KOICA Project Together for Equality: Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence in Timor-Leste was signed on 23 November 2020  cooperation between the Secretary of State for Equality and Inclusion (SEII) the and the UN family, UN Women, UNDP, UNFPA and IOM to support the development, implementation and monitoring of the National Action Plan on Gender-Based Violence (NAP GBV), led by the State Secretariat for Equality and Inclusion (SEII), with aims  to enhance efforts for all women and girls in Timor-Leste to enjoy their right to live free from gender-based violence in public and private spaces, and access quality essential services, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

Women’s economic empowerment is also one of the key pillars of UN Women’s programming in Timor-Leste. Establishing an enabling environment and gender-responsive public spaces for advancing their economic engagement is essential in achieving women’s economic empowerment. This aligns to the Government of Timor-Leste’s existing gender equality commitments including its Safe Dili and Safe Baucau commitments, the Second Maubisse Declaration for Rural Women, and institutional reforms including Public Finance Management (PFM), and mainstreaming gender in the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals.
