UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
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.
UN Women’s thematic engagement in Somalia is based on the global flagship on ‘Women’s Engagement in Peace, Security and Recovery, political participation and leadership’. Insecurity and fragility are further the main obstacles for women to seek equality and to prosper. UN Women’s programming and technical guidance aims to support women to become actors in the provision of security and resources for peace. Programme interventions are conducted through programmes on Women, Peace and Security, Rule of Law and Women’s Political Leadership and Empowerment. The United Nations Strategic Cooperation Framework 2021-2025 is the UN’s strategic programme framework that defines the UN’s support to national development results. UN Women in Somalia co-chairs the Gender Theme Group (GTG), the Gender, Human Rights and Inclusion Results Group, which are the UNCT coordination mechanisms responsible for the coordination of and policy advice on gender equality issues in the UNSCF. UN Women is also a principal partner in several outcome results groups in the UNSCF and as well as a partner to several UN joint programmes.
The United Nations in Somalia adopted a UN Somalia Gender Strategy, which ended in December 2020 thereby embarked on the process for assessment of the 2018-2020 strategy and development of a new strategy aligned to the UNSCF. UN Somalia is also committed to undertaking Gender Scorecard Exercise that assesses the capacities of the United Nations Country Team to respond to its gender mainstreaming responsibilities and the coordination function of the gender theme group. UN Women also leads the Civil Society Advisory Group (CSAG) Somalia. With the enhanced role of UN Women as the leading agency on coordination and gender mainstreaming, and the ensuing increased role of UN Women to lead the UN Gender and Disability portfolio, a strong, flexible and versatile coordination function within UN Women Country Office is required.
Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Country Programme Manager, and in close collaboration with the programme team, the Coordination Analyst will be responsible for strengthened accountability of results for gender equality and women's empowerment, enhanced efficiencies, improved coherence, and joint action through better coordination between UN agencies, the government, CSOs and development partners.
