The UN helps ensure that priorities in the national development framework reflect the country’s commitments to achieving gender equality within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UN has a key role to play as a convener of women’s groups and gender equality advocates who can flag gender concerns and influence the development agenda.
