UN System Framework for Action on Equality 08.02.2018

The Shared United Nations System Framework for Action on Equality and Non-discrimination aims to establish a common understanding of the challenge of rising inequalities and pervasive discrimination and to put forward a common programme for action. The Framework specifies elements of a comprehensive and coherent package of policy and programme support at the national, regional and global levels; promotes a common, system-wide approach to the analysis and monitoring of inequalities and discrimination, and their root causes; and identifies ways to strengthen accountability measures.

UN System Framework for Action on Equality 30.12.2019

Rising inequalities across the world have become a defining challenge of our time. Unless we take action to reverse this trend, inequalities will further deepen divides, stirring social unrest, undermining social progress and threatening political and economic stability.

Joint action is needed now.
