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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women has played an innovative and catalytic role in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) since its inception in 1997. UN Women oPt focuses its activities on one overarching goal, namely to support the implementation at the national level of existing international commitments to advance gender equality in line with the national priorities. In support of this goal and thoroughly taking into consideration the specificities of the oPt context, UN Women concentrates its efforts and interventions toward the realisation of following strategic goals: Engendering governance, peace and security; Supporting women's economic security and rights; and Promoting women’s rights and protection against violence.

UN Women aims at increasing prevention of Violence against Women and Girls and improving access to security, protection and justice for Palestinian women and girl survivors of violence. To this end, UN Women applies a holistic approach using international standards and women’s voices to increase specialized, quality, multi-sectoral protection of women and girls. UN Women also aims to bring gender equality dimensions into humanitarian programming, response, and assistance through ensuring that gender equality commitments are adopted and implemented in humanitarian programme response, and assistance, as well as in humanitarian structures.

Considering the  huge impact of the Israeli operation“ Protective Edge“ ( July 2014) on the lives and protection of Palestinians women and girls in the Gaza Strip;  in light of IASC Guidelines for Gender-based Violence (GBV) Interventions in Humanitarian Settings and the Protection Cluster Needs Analysis Framework (2014-2016) & Strategic Response Plan for 2014 Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC) which both identify GBV as a priority concern specifically with regards to “Lack of, or limited access to, services in response to GBV”; in alignment with UN Women strategic plan Outcome 3.2 “Specialized, quality, multi-sectoral survivors-based services available and accessible to women and girl victims of violence”; and aligning with the work of stakeholders within the GBV sub working group functioning under the UN inter-agency Gender Task Force (GTF), UN Women will implement the project “Improving Holistic Protection Services for Women and Girls in the Conflict Affected Context of the Gaza Strip” (2014-2015), which is funded by the Japanese Government, to provide holistic protection services to women and girls victims of gender based violence in Gaza with particular focus on women and girls IDPs and/or living in overcrowded houses.  Through the project, UN Women, in coordination with OCHA and the cluster system, will also capitalize on its innovative approach in including gender dimensions into humanitarian response in the Gaza Strip, including building the capacity of humanitarian sectors and clusters in the area of gender mainstreaming in humanitarian action and supporting improved coordination among actors for advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment.
