United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women (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’s Women Peace and Security program in South Sudan supports international frameworks on gender equality and women’s empowerment, including the Beijing Platform for Action and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and UNSCR 1325. The UN Women South Sudan Country Office supports the government to fulfill its objectives such as those related to UNSCR 1325, and the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). The Country Office provides intellectual and strategic leadership on normative support and the delivery of integrated policy and program advice, including through policy analysis and gender mainstreaming. The Division leverages innovation, knowledge management and cutting-edge technical expertise to support UN Women programs and to build the capacity of partners to deliver results on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
UN Women works closely with government institutions such as South Sudan’s Women Parliamentarians’ Caucus (WPC) in support of WPS priorities. The WPC was established in 2006 during the first Transitional Legislative Assembly. It was launched to unite women around goals that transcend their political differences. In 2011, the Caucus became the Transitional National Legislature and brought together women leaders from different political parties to influence policies on gender equality, human rights, and overall to support the country’s transition.
The stated vision, mission, and objective of the WPC are as follows:
A vibrant, united, credible, impartial and committed women parliamentarians’ caucus working together beyond their political party circle to ensure gender equality for sustainable peace and development in the Republic of South Sudan.
Towards all-inclusive gender equality through advocacy, formulation, the promulgation of gender mainstreaming and sensitive policies and laws for equal distribution of resources and representation of women to enhance their quality of life in accordance with fair representation, empowerment, support of political space and networking.
To influence the process of law making strengthening women capacity, and inclusion, raising awareness on gender issues and solidarity among women as well as their visibility and unifying the voices for sustainable peace, reconciliation and healing.
Duties and Responsibilities
The WPC is concluding their 2018-2022 strategic plan and preparing for the development of a strategic plan for the years 2023-2027. An assessment will be conducted to evaluate the implementation of the strategic plan ending currently. The findings from the evaluation will help the development of the 2023-2027 strategic plan. The upcoming strategic plan will address several critical issues such as South Sudan’s political transition and the implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS), constitution-making and elections. Part of the WPC’s focus is raising women’s awareness and mobilizing them to take part in critical political processes such as constitution-making and elections.
Consultants are needed to assist in the assessment of the 2018-2022 strategic plan and for the development of the upcoming strategic plan.
