The Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE) is a network of United Nations offices, specialized agencies, funds and programmes. All UN member entities are represented in the Network. The network supports and monitors the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women and the outcome of the twenty-third United Nations General Assembly special session "Women 2000: gender equality, development and peace for the twenty-first century" (Beijing+5); and gender-related recommendations emanating from other recent UN General Assembly special sessions, conferences and summits, especially by ensuring effective co-operation and coordination throughout the UN system.
