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 believes in equal opportunities and respect for diversity.
UN Women in partnership with UNDP and UNEP, is implementing a project “Supporting sustainable peace in Blue Nile State through gender-responsive natural resource governance, inclusive conflict resolution mechanisms and climate-resilient livelihoods”. The primary objective of the project is to promote durable peace in Blue Nile State through the empowerment of women and girls as active agents of change in natural resource management and conflict resolution. Gender equality and women’s empowerment is therefore a central to the delivery of the two major components of the project. These include 1) developing climate-resilient livelihoods including by enhancing women’s safety through violence prevention activities, provision of justice for survivors of GBV; 2) strengthening inclusive governance mechanisms by building women’s capacities for leadership and planning (through the Community Environmental Action Planning process); building women’s capacities for dialogue and mediation; increasing the participation of women in peacebuilding mechanisms and processes. Strengthening of women movement in Blue Nile region cuts across the two components.
To ensure delivery of the above-mentioned components, UN Women needs to avail foundational information. This includes mapping of women led CSOs, and of GBV services provided as well as conducting capacity assessment of select CSOs at state level. Capacity assessment for GBV services and providers is necessary to design targeted activities to strengthen the GBV referral system. Given that the project employs institutional capacity building of CSOs as one of the strategies to strengthen the women movement, tailored training modules based on the capacity assessment are needed.
