UNRWA Gender Equality Strategy (GES) 2016-2021

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

UNRWA Gender Equality Strategy (GES) 2016-2021 is grounded in the Agency’s Gender Equality Policy (2007), builds on the first Gender Mainstreaming Strategy 2008- 2015 and is aligned with, and contributes to, the goals of the UNRWA Medium TermStrategy (MTS) 2016-2021 given the cross-cutting nature of gender. The GES innovatively employs a ‘dual-track’ approach focusing on organizational and programme changes, two levels which are mutually reinforcing and contribute to achieving more inclusive and equitable services for Palestine refugees.
