Background

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.

UN Women Indonesia Country Office (CO) hosts the ASEAN liaison office which extends support to ASEAN and its Member States in advancing Women Peace and Security (WPS) agenda in line with global normative frameworks. UN Women in partnership with Global Affairs Canada (GAC) is implementing the regional programme, “Empowering Women for Sustainable Peace: preventing violence and promoting social cohesion in ASEAN” (The Project). 

The Project aims to advance the implementation of the WPS agenda in ASEAN, including preventing violence against women and promoting social cohesion in the region. More specifically, the Programme will strengthen the capacities of ASEAN institutions and ASEAN Member States (AMS) on WPS. Although the project largely focuses on advancing normative frameworks, capacity building and exchange of knowledge and good practices, it encompasses country-level implementation, where synergies between the regional and country-level interventions can be enhanced and leveraged.

The Women, Peace and Security (WPS) framework showed the importance of women's full, equal, and meaningful participation in effective pandemic response and peacemaking efforts and provided a critical framework for inclusive decision-making and sustainable solutions. UN Security Council Resolution 1325 Council on Women, Peace and Security (UNSCR 1325) of 2000 marked a turning point for the international women's rights movement. As a member of the United Nations, Indonesia adopted resolution 1325 through Presidential Decree no. 18 of 2014 concerning the Protection and Empowerment of Women and Children in Social Conflict (P3AKS) under the legal umbrella of Law no. 7 of 2012 concerning Handling Social Conflict. To implement Presidential Decree No. 18 of 2014, the government issued a National Action Plan for the Protection and Empowerment of Women and Children in Social Conflict (NAP WPS/ RAN P3AKS) 2014-2019.

The presence of a NAP WPS/RAN P3AKS, by many parties, is considered relevant and is the only instrument that directly recognizes the importance of the involvement of women and children in handling social conflicts. Several interventions both at the national and sub-national levels were carried out by ministries/government institutions with the support of civil society and development partners for the socialization and implementation of the RAN P3AKS by piloting the development of P3AKS Regional Action Plans (RAD) in several provinces that were prone to social conflict. The presence of a NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS  is important to strengthen the local infrastructure so that the implementation of the NAP WPS  will be more contextual with their respective strategies and needs.

The first generation of the NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS ended in 2019.  The Government in partnership with civil society networks conducted digital consultations to assess the achievements, relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, of the RAN P3AKS. This assessment was the basis for the development of the 2nd generation of the NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS. Results from these digital consultations showed the importance of having a second generation of NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS, which should be more flexible in responding and preventing conflicts, including addressing the root causes. The Indonesian government has again demonstrated its strong commitment to implement the WPS agenda by launching the second generation of NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS 2020-2025 on July 2021 through the Regulation of the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (Kemenko PMK) No. 5 of 2021.

UN Women is supporting the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection to advance the implementation of the second generation of the NAP WPS /RAN P3AKS. Alongside the strengthening of state institutions for the implementation of the NAP WPS, UN Women will support the Government of Indonesia to establish the accountability mechanisms of the NAP WPS  and  further develop core skills and capacities, including monitoring and reporting to enable women’s groups, young women, and women with disabilities to meaningfully participate and shape more equitable and inclusive peacebuilding and local plans.

It is, therefore, envisioned that by the end of this intervention, a strong monitoring, reporting and coordination mechanism will be put in place to strengthen accountability on the second phase of the NAP WPS/ RAN P3AKS (2020-2025). As a result, the monitoring, and reporting framework of the second phase of the NAP will be more comprehensive and user-friendly. With the NAP WPS/ RAN P3AKS technical working group, the reporting lines are expected to be clear and effective.

Against this backdrop, UN Women on behalf of the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection (MoWECP) seeks to hire a Consultant to develop a monitoring system for the RAN P3AKS through the development of guidelines, tools and by strengthening the capacities of targeted civil servants and women’s organizations on results-based and gender responsive monitoring, and reporting.

With the purpose of implementing an effective NAP WPS/RAN P3AKS, the NC is expected to facilitate the development of a monitoring and reporting system, as well as strengthen the capacity of the members of the Working Group on monitoring and reporting on the NAP WPS/RAN P3AKS.

In the delivery of this consultancy, the NC will work with the RAN P3AKS Working Group that is led by the MoWECP to develop a participatory monitoring system. The selected NC will strengthen the capacities of targeted civil servants, members of the NAP WPS/RAN P3AKS technical working group including selected women’s organizations on results-based monitoring and reporting. This will include among others, providing technical support on monitoring and reporting, facilitating trainings, and mentoring the assigned staff members.
