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.
The Spotlight Initiative is a global partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in support of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. It was launched in September 2017 by the UN Secretary-General and the EU High Representative and Vice President (HRVP). The 500 million Euro Initiative provides a model for partnerships with donors, civil society, and the UN to deliver on the SDGs in a comprehensive manner leveraging comparative expertise. SDG 5 and the achievement of gender equality are placed at the centre of efforts (alongside Goal 16) with the aim to provide an enabling environment for the implementation of all goals. Within the UN, the Initiative is helping to operationalize the UN development system reforms and model a new way of delivering on the SDGs in an integrated way, leveraging collaborative advantages.
The Spotlight Initiative in Nigeria is implemented through five UN agencies (UN Women, UNFPA, UNDP, UNICEF, and UNESCO) with a focus on addressing gender-based violence against women and girls. It follows a transformative and evidence-based approach, addressing unequal power relations between men and women and focusing on gender equality and women’s empowerment. The overall vision of the Spotlight Initiative in Nigeria is that women and girls enjoy their right to a life free of violence, within an inclusive and gender equitable nation.
As core element of the Spotlight Programme in Nigeria, UN Women is supporting capacity strengthening of the women’s movement, as well as other CSOs representing faith-based communities, youth, women and girls with disabilities, women living with HIV, and other groups facing intersecting forms of discrimination/marginalization, in their capacity to advocate for gender equality and ending gender-based violence. The aim is to ensure that women civil society organizations, especially at the grassroots level, have strong capacity and a well-coordinated voice that can consistently demand and monitor progress on gender equality in the country.
Under the direct supervision of the Programme Specialist- Technical Coherence, the Programme Analyst will be responsible for ensuring quality implementation; monitoring and reporting on the Spotlight Initiative Pillar 6 and implementing partners under the Women, Peace and Humanitarian Fund. S/he will facilitate the delivery of the UN Women components of the Spotlight Initiative that focuses on movement building, including initiating and coordinating activities to enhance the capacity of women-led/ women’s rights focused civil society organizations/ networks including the civil society reference group; monitoring results achieved during implementation; and ensuring appropriate application of systems and procedures. Through the Programme Specialist-Technical Coherence, the Programme Analyst will work closely with Spotlight Coordination team based in the Resident Coordinators office, the other Recipient UN Organizations (UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and UNESCO), Implementing partners, the EU and other donors, civil society, and Government officials to ensure a coordinated and successful implementation of UN Women’s activities under the Spotlight Initiative.
