UN Women is seeking an implementing partner to build the capacity of media personnel, journalism students, and civil society organization staff to improve skills and accuracy in reporting on gender-based violence—with a focus on safety in public spaces and workplaces and avoiding gender discrimination against women in the media—and to monitor media reporting on gender issues, including in the context of sexual violence in public spaces and natural disasters/pandemics.

UN Women’s goal in Timor-Leste is to promote women’s human rights and gender equality as the country works towards sustaining and furthering achievements instability and development. In this regard, its programming in the country is connected to support the efforts to ensure gender-sensitive plans and budgets and women’s right to live free of violence.

UN Women, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and International Organization for Migration (IOM) through the generous funding of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in Timor-Leste have come together to enhance efforts for all women and girls in Timor-Leste to enjoy their right to live free from gender-based violence in public and private spaces, and access quality essential services, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As result, the four-year Joint UN-KOICA Project Together for Equality (T4E) – Hamuuk ba Igualdade: Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence in Timor-Leste was successfully signed on 23 November 2020 at Hotel Timor and launched on 16 February 2021. The project covers three municipalities, Baucau, Covalima, RAEOA – Oecusse and Dili.
