Organizational Setting

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) works in partnership with governments, the UN system, communities, NGOs, foundations and the private sector to raise awareness and mobilize the support and resources needed to achieve its mission to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled in development and humanitarian settings.

The four core inter-related areas of UNFPA work are sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment, adolescent and youth empowerment, and population data for development. The organization’s work is guided by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action and its reviews, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action of the Fourth World Conference on Women, and Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Overall, the organization employs 2,800 staff and is present in more than 150 countries and territories.

UNFPA Strategic direction

The UNFPA Strategic Plan 2018-2021 is the first of three strategic plans leading to the target date of 2030 to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and leave no one behind. The goal of the strategic plan is to ‚achieve universal access to sexual and reproductive health, realize reproductive rights, and reduce maternal mortality to accelerate progress on the agenda of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development, to improve the lives of women, adolescents and youth, enabled by population dynamics, human rights and gender equality‘.

The plan highlights three transformative results to be achieved with partners by 2030: an end to preventable maternal deaths, an end to unmet need for family planning, and an end to gender-based violence and harmful practices.

The strategic plan also responds to other global frameworks underpinning the 2030 Agenda, including the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on financing for development.

UNFPA strategic plan is aligned with the UN General Assembly resolution on the Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system. As agreed in the 2018-2021 strategic plan, UNFPA will harness its collaborative advantage, in compliance with respective mandates and in collaboration with UN partners, to enhance cooperation and collaboration with humanitarian assistance and peacebuilding efforts, in accordance with national plans, needs and priorities, and national ownership.

ICPD, Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals and UN Reform

UNFPA strategic direction contributes to the 2030 Agenda and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Agenda 2030 is a transformational plan of action for the world’s people and for our planet that aims to achieve peace and prosperity through partnerships.

The Deputy Executive Director Programme assists in efforts to implement Agenda 2030.

UNFPA strategic direction supports the achievement of all 17 SDGs and is most directly aligned to Goal 3 to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages; Goal 5 to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls; Goal 10 to reduce inequality within and among countries; Goal 16 to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels; and Goal 17 to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.

The DED Programme supports UNFPA alignment with UN system reform.

UNFPA is committed to supporting the UN Secretary-General’s reform agenda, with the understanding that the UN Development System must reform the way it works to implement Agenda 2030. UNFPA is leading change through the UN Leadership Framework and a change management process. The UN Leadership Framework stresses staff leadership at all levels, and identifies eight defining characteristics of leadership in the UN: norm-based, principled, inclusive, accountable, multi-dimensional, transformational, collaborative, and self-applied. It also identifies four leadership behaviours that exemplify the new way of working: focusing on impact, driving transformational change, systems thinking, and co-creation.
