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.
Since 2001, UN Women (UNIFEM) has been providing continues support to partners in Georgia to increase meaningful participation of women in peace and security processes. Under the current country program and in line with UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2021-2025, UN Women supports the Government of Georgia to develop and implement National Action Plans for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace, and Security #1325 (2000) et al. and to achieve targets of the nationalized SDG 5 and 16.
UN Women in Georgia, with generous support of the UK Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) is implementing a project “Accelerating implementation of Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Georgia” contributing to the enhancement of women’s full, direct and meaningful participation in peace and security processes and increasing Government of Georgia’s accountability to implement the Women, Peace and Security agenda in Georgia and meet its obligations undertaken on the international, regional and local levels.
Parliament of Georgia has a central role in promoting and implementing the WPS Agenda (WPSA). Firstly, the legislative body contributes to the advancement of this agenda by supporting the adoption of WPS-related legislation and gender mainstreamed budgets. Secondly, they are uniquely positioned to hold the government accountable for fulfilling the commitments that it has made as part of the WPS agenda. Furthermore, lawmakers have a direct connection to their constituents and can therefore communicate the benefits of implementing the WPS agenda to a broad audience at the local level.
For the purpose of improving the effectiveness of parliamentary oversight functions, the new Rules of Procedure of the Parliament of Georgia (Available at: Rules of Procedure of the Parliament of Georgia | ???? ”??????????? ????????????? ?????” (matsne.gov.ge) was adopted in 2018, the goal of which is to bring the document in compliance with the Constitution of Georgia by more effective implementation of the legislative and supervisory functions of the Parliament. For this purpose, the new procedural rule introduced, inter alia, the mechanism of a Thematic Rapporteur (Art. 45 of Rules of Procedure of the Parliament of Georgia, adopted on 14/12/2018). The Thematic Rapporteur is appointed by the Chairperson of a Committee of Parliament to ensure effective performance of legislative, supervisory, and other functions of the Parliament.
A Thematic Rapporteur on the WPS issues was appointed within the Defence and Security Committee of the Parliament, Ms. Teona Akubardia (Deputy Chair of Defence and Security Committee). For the purpose of providing the capacity building of the Parliament of Georgia to improve the oversight function on the implementation of the NAP on UNSCR #1325 and WPSA in general, UN Women initiated a cooperation with the Defence and Security Committee of the Parliament.
It is expected that the National Consultant will provide institutional support to the Thematic Rapporteur mechanism by conducting a desk research on the existing reports and analytical documents on WPS situation in the country, as well as perform the needs assessment of the target groups (conflict affected women – IDPs and those living in the vicinity of ABLs), and compile a draft Thematic Report to be finalized after the discussion of the document in the Defence and Security Committee for further follow-up measures.
The national consultant in cooperation with the Thematic Rapporteur on WPS (Ms. Teona Akubardia, Deputy Chair of Defence and Security Committee) will be responsible for developing and writing a comprehensive study to respond to the following objectives:
The Thematic Report will include the situation analysis, as well as the conclusions and recommendations, which will be discussed with the stakeholders and relevant experts. The major findings and recommendations will be discussed with the Chair of the Committee of Defence and Security, Parliament of Georgia. The results of the discussion will be reflected in the final report. After the hearing of the report, it will be adopted by the Committee and provided to the executive authorities for their feedback. It is highly recommended that the Thematic Report is presented and discussed at the plenary session and its findings and follow-up measures introduced to the public.
