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. Placing women’s rights at the center of its efforts, UN Women is mandated to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors. UN Women leads and coordinates UN efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming are translated into action.
UN Women Office in Tanzania, in alignment with the just finalized United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF: 2020-2025) and SDGs, looks forward to strengthening collaboration with the United Republic of Tanzania (URT) Government and other partners to achieve gender equality and empowerment of women and girls through implementation of transformative programs in Tanzania. The Tanzanian Government finalized its (mainland) Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP) III- 2021/22 - 2025/26 and Zanzibar Development Plan (ZADEP)-2021 – 2026. UN Women is committed to providing continued technical and financial support for the advancement of key national commitments on gender equality and the empowerment of women – in line with the national Vison 2040 and development goals.
It Is upon this background that UN Women builds on harnessing synergies and opportunities to develop its next country programme document “Strategic Note (2023-2027)”, which will set the vision, strategic results areas, and implementation plan and roadmap for UN Women Tanzania office for the next five (5) years. This new SN will take into consideration the four thematic areas of the UN Women SP 2022-2025, as well as the new generation equality themes as defined by UN Women: EVAWG, Global Norms; Feminist action for Climate justice; Economic justice and rights; Bodily autonomy and Sexual Reproductive Health Rights; Feminist movement and leadership, Women Peace, Security and Humanitarian Action, Gender Statistics, Technology, Youth, and Innovation for Gender Equality.
Objectives of the Assignment
UN Women Tanzania Country Office is embarking on the process of developing its third Strategic Note (SN) for the period of 2023-2027, defining key development results and management/operational results for the next five years. The Strategic Note will be informed by the global UN Women Strategic Plan 2022-2025 and aligned to the UNSCDF for Tanzania as well as the national development plans and priorities, articulating UN Women’s contribution to achieving national priorities, goals and results as set out in the UNSDCF. The SN will also take onboard the new and existing multiyear programs, where UN Women Tanzania has existing donor agreements. This means that development-focused country programmes of individual UN entities (i.e. the SN in the case of UN Women) will be derived from the UNSDCF, FYDP III and ZADEP rather than the other way around. Henceforth, specifically, this new SN will:
As a necessary part of the process of developing the new Strategic Note, the UN Women Country Office in Tanzania needs to develop a SN that is:
In addition, this SN should:
Given the above context, UN Women’s response framework to the SN development will thus focus on the following four thematic areas and priorities derived from the UN Women Strategic Plan 2022-2025:
Building on the above priorities, in consultation with UN Women, national and development partners, the consultant(s) will consider in the design process of the SN.
To this end, the UN Women Office in Tanzania would like to bring on board a senior international consultant (IC) to undertake the process of developing a Strategic Note for Tanzania that is in line with UN Women corporate guidelines for developing the SN. The consultants should employ a consultative and participatory approach throughout the development and drafting of the Strategic Note by involving UN Women staff), other UN agencies operating in the country, strategic partners including relevant government counterparts, key donors, CSOs, Private Sector Actors and other stakeholders in the process
