UN Women in Lebanon works across the humanitarian-development-peace and security nexus to support national efforts for the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. To create an enabling environment for the realization of gender equality and women’s empowerment, UN Women advocates and supports social mobilization for legislative reform, works with the Government of Lebanon and partners to build gender-responsive institutions, and delivers essential services to women and girls in need, both host government nationals, and refugees. This is complemented by work that seeks to engage communities, women, and men, on issues of gender equality with the objective of addressing discriminatory gender norms. This work is done through the following focus areas:

  • Women’s Political Participation
  • Women, Peace, and Security
  • Social Norms work – to engage men and women in issues of gender equality
