Background

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

Afghanistan is one of the world’s most complex emergencies, and one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises. Afghan people are grappling with the impact of insecurity, poverty, economic decline, and natural disasters. Since the takeover by Taliban in August 2021, Afghanistan has witnessed a progressive erasure of women’s rights and freedoms, through over 70 formal and informal edicts, messages and practices. It is essential that Afghan women and girls continue to shape the development of their country, and that their gains are protected. UN Women remains fully committed to supporting Afghan women and girls and to putting them at the center of the global response to the crisis in Afghanistan. In the evolving context UN Women continues to reconfigure and adapt its programming to be responsive to ensure the full spectrum of rights of Afghan women and girls are met.

UN Women’s programming approach in Afghanistan is informed by analysis of the political, economic and humanitarian situation, risks to, and capacities of, partner organizations, and needs of Afghan women and girls. UN Women Afghanistan currently has five key programme priorities: (1) Gender in Humanitarian Action, (2) Ending Violence Against Women, (3) Women’s Economic Empowerment, (4) Contributing to Rebuilding Women Civil Society Organizations, and (5) Women, Peace and Security. Given the operational context in country, UN Women has also strengthened its 5 sub offices to ensure a more localized approach to its programming.

The 2024 Humanitarian Needs and Response Plan (HNRP) identified 23.7 million people in need – 53% of the entire population- and it requires USD 3.06 billion in funding. In addition, the 2023-25 UN Strategic Framework for Afghanistan (UNSFA) stresses the acute basic human needs that vulnerable populations across the country continue to face - in terms of access to services, livelihoods and social cohesion/human rights. The (immediate) humanitarian challenges, as well as the (longer-term) basic human needs situation, compound each other, making the crisis in Afghanistan particularly complex.  

Engaging women’s organization has a catalytic impact on promoting Humanitarian-Peace-Development nexus. Women-led/focused CSOs play a pivotal role in ensuring meaningful delivery of services to women and girls in any context but the role of these organizations is even more critical in gender-segregated societies like Afghanistan. Women CSOs have a catalytic effect in reaching people in need as they are deeply embedded in the communities where they work. The presence of women-led and women-focused CSOs is paramount to navigating the constrained operational environment and facilitating gender-sensitive programming. Further, addressing the needs of women is at the forefront of women focused CSOs’ programming, rather than just one component of their operations.

In Afghanistan, to ensure a gendered response to a worsening humanitarian situation, the UN Women Afghanistan Country Office is working actively to provide strategic leadership and technical support to ensure the humanitarian response fully responds to the specific needs and priorities of women in girls through elevating support the humanitarian response architecture as well develop targeted programming. Within the worsening humanitarian context in Afghanistan and multiple restrictions on women’s rights and movement, additional emphasis is being placed on the gendered impacts of the crisis, such as gender targeted security incidents further impacting space for women humanitarian workers or the impact on women’s access to humanitarian services, amongst others. 

Under the Gender in Humanitarian Action (GiHA) Unit, UN Women is partnering with the Special Trust Fund for Afghanistan (STFA) and with the Women, Peace and Humanitarian Fund to support women organizations to deliver gender-responsive, results driven programs linking the humanitarian response to basic human needs programming and to influence the aid coordination structure to increase the accountability of the humanitarian response and its connection with basic human needs programing.
