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 Tanzania is nearing the end of implementing its Strategic Note (2017-2022) and is undergoing a process of developing its new Strategic Note. This new strategic plan will fully align with UN Women’s 2022-2025 New Global Strategic Plan, within which Coordination contributes to the achievement of the Development Results Framework.
Towards the development of a strategic note which sets out the critical role coordination plays in the achievement of results for women and girls in Tanzania, the Tanzania Country Office’s (TCO) has already invested significant resources in strengthening coordinated and coherent programming on gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls across the UN system in Tanzania. This includes coordinating the implementation, monitoring and reporting of the UNCT-SWAP Gender Equality Scorecard; supporting the establishment and effective functioning of both the Gender Equality and Human Rights Coordination Mechanism (GE&HRCM), and the UNCT Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Network; leading the UNDAP II Outcome Group on Women’s Leadership and Political Participation and activity participating in other relevant Outcome Groups; and co-leading the development of priorities for the Enabling Environment Outcome group under the new UN Sustainable Development Corporation Framework (2022-2027 UNSDCF), the implementation of which will begins in July 2022.
Within this context, 2022 represents a transition period for UN Women in Tanzania on multiple fronts. Firstly, through the transition between the current and the new Strategic Note, and secondly contributing to the UN System wide transition between UNDAP II and the new UNSDCF. This transition brings with it significant opportunities for UN Women, to ensure the TCO can deliver on its commitments (particularly with regards to supporting coordinated joint UN GEWE efforts, including the delivery of the UNCT-SWAP Action Plan).
Reporting to the Gender and UN Coordination Specialist, the coordination consultant will provide the technical support required to ensure the TCO is able to fully delivery on its 2022 commitments to the UN system while also ensuring a smooth transition into the delivery of the new Strategic Note.
