For the Government of Albania gender equality is closely related to the country’s EU integration processes. The attainment of gender equality is one of the key priorities for development and clearly articulated in a series of national documents. UN Women supports the government with policy advice to fulfill its international and national obligations with respect to equality between women and men. UN Women contributes to build capacities at national and local levels – to strengthen the implementation and monitoring of national strategies, policies and plans.
