OUR FOCUS

Social Inclusion

and Gender Equality

Growth that leaves no one behind

In the last few years, Serbia has put economic development and growth in the centre of its development agenda. But it is important to ensure that economic growth also works for the poorest and marginalized population. This is imperative not just from the perspective of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but also having in mind the need to maximize growth by using the full potential of the society as a whole.

Sustainable economic growth, gender equality, inclusive employment and access to social services are among the key ingredients of a prosperous and democratic society. Together with our development partners we work on improving people’s lives by tackling the interconnected issues of multidimensional poverty, inequality and exclusion. We are creating an enabling environment to ensure full and productive employment for all, with focus on the socially excluded and vulnerable populations, particularly women, youth, persons with disabilities and minorities. We are supporting empowerment and promotion of social, economic and political inclusion of all, and are working to have better targeting policies and social protection for those in need.

UNDP incorporates principles of gender equality and women’s empowerment in all of its work. We advocate for inclusive economic development that benefits women and men equally. We engage communities to advance women’s participation in politics and governance. We build up the skills and knowledge of women and men to increase resilience against the impacts of climate change.

In cooperation with other development partners, we also work to advocate for women’s equal rights, combat discriminatory legislation and practices, challenge gender roles and stereotypes and put an end to violence against women and girls.
