25 YEARS OF UNDP CONTRIBUTION TO THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN IN TAJIKISTAN
Mar 19, 2020
As UNDP marks 25 years of work in Tajikistan, we thought it would be a good time to reﬂect on the achievements of the past quarter of a century assisting the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan in the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. This anniversary also oﬀers an opportunity to identify persistent shortcomings and, as we look to the future and chart the path ahead, deﬁne ways to accelerate progress toward equal opportunities for women and men, in line with the objectives set in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, which also celebrates its 25-year anniversary. As this publication highlights, Tajikistan has taken important legislative steps over the years to reduce gender inequalities and ensure that women, girls, youth and people from marginalised groups have a voice and they can actively participate in building a sustainable future for the country.
