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 the 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 and builds effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

UN Women Egypt Strategic Plan (2018-2022) focuses on promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in line with the 2014 Egyptian Constitution and relevant international norms and standards. Egypt’s 2018-2022 UN Partnership Development Framework (UNPDF) considers that ‘dealing with issues of women’s social and economic empowerment must be at the forefront of the UN’s support in the economic and social arenas. The Egyptian National Women’s Strategy (NWS) 2030 focuses on four pillars: (a) women’s leadership and political participation; (b) women’s economic empowerment; (c) women’s social empowerment; and (d) protection of women. ‘Changing prevailing cultural norms’ and ‘legislative change’ are included as cross-cutting enablers.

Financial inclusion has been identified as a valuable tool in fostering women’s economic empowerment, increasing their capacity to face risk and unexpected expenses and participate in sustainable economic growth. Financial inclusion relates to people (especially low income), households’ and MSMEs’ access to a full range of useful and affordable quality financial products and services that meet their needs – such as accounts, savings, payments and transfers, credit, and insurance and others – in a responsible and sustainable manner, within a legal and regulatory environment conducive to their development, by a range of formal service providers.

Financial inclusion is specifically important for women and girls in the sense that it can increase their empowerment and improve gender equality in a number of ways. Firstly, by having access to resources and tools, women’s bargaining power within households will increase and in turn upsurge their influence and ability of decision making. Secondly, financial inclusion can support women sustain their own income, control assets outside the household and have a contribution to productive activities. Thirdly, financial inclusion can reduce women’s vulnerability and dependency on male family members by having access to financial opportunities to smooth consumption or meet unexpected expenses. Furthermore, women who are financially excluded lack access to basic financial services, which in turn has an impact on their access to household expenditures (for food, health, education, etc.) and expenditures for business.

The current environment in Egypt holds huge potential for women’s financial inclusion. Egypt’s National Women’s Empowerment Strategy 2030 and its accompanying pillar on Women’s Economic Empowerment list women’s access to economic resources through increased access to financial services as an important objective. The CBE co-hosted the 9th Global Policy Forum of the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI), held in September 2017. In his opening speech President H.E. Abdel Fattah El Sisi emphasised the high-level political commitment for financial inclusion in the country, especially for women. Financial inclusion has moved to the top of the development policy agenda and gained a great deal of traction. In September 2017, the Central Bank of Egypt and the National Council for Women signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to foster women’s financial inclusion in Egypt, with SGs expansion as one of the key objectives of the MOU. These developments pave the pave the way for programs to create financial inclusion of all in Egypt, especially the rural women.

Although Egypt has made a huge leap in financial inclusion, most Egyptian women, especially rural women, do not use formal financial services and the majority of adults in the poorest communities do not deal with banks. Overall, Egypt has made massive stride to almost double the number of people with accounts in formal institutions, but the overall penetration is still relatively low (32.8%). Rural accounts outreach is lower (29% against 33% nationally). While the rate of formal account penetration among women has more than tripled between 2011 and 2017 (from 7% to 27%), it is still less than the rate among men (39% in 2017), and the gender gap has kept increasing (from 6 percentage points in 2011 to 12 in 2017).

Women who are financially excluded lack access to basic financial services, which in turn has an impact on their access to household expenditures (for food, health, education, etc.) and expenditures for business. Many, therefore, depend on informal sources of finance, generally at unfairly high-interest rates. It is in this context that financial inclusion initiatives aimed at women and managed by women assume greater importance.

UNDP works in some 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

Inclusive growth, better services, environmental sustainability, good governance, and security are fundamental to development progress. We offer our expertise in development thinking and practice, and our decades of experience at country level, to support countries to meet their development aspirations and to bring the voices of the world’s peoples into deliberations.In 2016, UNDP is continuing its work to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), or Global Goals, as they help shape global sustainable development for the next 15 years.

UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas:

Sustainable development

Democratic governance and peacebuilding

Climate and disaster resilience

In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.

The annual Human Development Report, commissioned by UNDP, focuses the global debate on key development issues, providing new measurement tools, innovative analysis and often controversial policy proposals. The global Report's analytical framework and inclusive approach carry over into regional, national and local Human Development Reports, also supported by UNDP.

UNDP role in UN coordination

UN coordination is a key priority for UNDP and a commitment in our Strategic Plan. The UNDP Administrator is the Chair of the UN Development Group (UNDG), which unites the funds, programmes, specialized agencies, departments and offices of the UN system that play a role in development. Created by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and endorsed by the General Assembly, the UNDG seeks to ‘facilitate joint policy formulation, encourage programmatic collaboration and realize management efficiencies’ among UN agencies.

At the country level, this interagency structure is embedded in the Resident Coordinator System (RCS), which encompasses all organizations of the United Nations system with operational activities for development. The RCS is managed by UNDP on behalf of the entire system. The Resident Coordinator function is carried by the UNDP Resident Representative. As the designated representative of the Secretary-General, the Resident Coordinator is the leader of the UN Country Team (UNCT) and plays a central role in coordinating the UN’s development operations and ensuring alignment with national priorities. UNDP provides the lion’s share of the resources needed to maintain the RC system in over 130 countries. The remainder of the RCS funding comes from a cost-sharing arrangement between all participating agencies.

UNDP also administers the UN Capital Development Fund, which helps developing countries grow their economies by supplementing existing sources of capital assistance by means of grants and loans; and UN Volunteers, which fields over 6,000 volunteers from 160 countries in support of peace and development through volunteerism worldwide.
