Tine Mørch Smith
Ambassador, Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Norway to the United Nations and other International Organisations in Geneva
Including a gender perspective is key to ensure we approach complex problems in their totality, and that we do not ignore the rights or needs of any one group. Only by taking a gendered approach will we be effective in promoting peace, stability and economic impact for society at large.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
Promote gender transformative approaches and follow-up in partner organizations’ normative and operational work, and integrate key messages related to women’s rights, gender and diversity; sexual and reproductive health and rights; women, peace and security; and combating sexual and gender based violence, in all relevant work of the Mission.
Encourage Geneva headquartered partner organizations to promote gender balance and work-life balance at all levels, and request regular updates on plans and resources allocated to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
