About UN Women in Albania
Active in Albania since it set up its Country Programme in 2007, UN Women works closely with the government and civil society to design and implement the laws, policies, programmes and services needed to improve the status of women and achieve global standards for gender equality. Within the One UN Programme in Albania, UN Women Albania leads on gender equality issues, and provides coordination and support to related activities.
UN Women focuses on initiatives in four priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality and that can unlock progress for everyone in Albania:
- Leadership and political participation
- Economic empowerment
- Ending violence against women
- National planning and budgeting
