Offer: UNDP / MDG: Women’s Empowerment area - Several Intl Consultant Jobs / Deadlines: from May 5 to May 31st, 2013

Millennium Development Goals
At the United Nations Millennium Summit, world leaders put development at the heart of the global agenda with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), setting clear targets for reducing poverty, disease, hunger, illiteracy, environmental degradation and discrimination against women by 2015. On the ground in virtually every developing country, UNDP uses its global network to help the UN system and our partners raise awareness and track progress, while we connect countries to the knowledge and resources they need to achieve these goals.

Women’s Empowerment
Women's empowerment and gender equality are one of the Millennium Development Goals and central to all other development efforts. UNDP works to promote achievement of these goals in all parts of its work, and also administers UNIFEM.
