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.
Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) 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. Through its programmes and projects, UN Women provides technical assistance to national partners in the implementation of existing international and national commitments to women’s human rights and gender equality, facilitates the exchange of good practices, and advocates for women’s rights and gender equality in all areas of life.
In 2021, UN Women, in collaboration with the Governments of France and Mexico, convened the Generation Equality Forum, a global multistakeholder partnership to drive results and accelerate the full and effective implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the Sustainable Development Goals. Generation Equality Forum is fully embedded in UN Women’s Strategic Plan and aims to accelerate the achievement of results contained therein. Generation Equality Forum is also recognized by the Secretary-General’s “Common Agenda” as an important initiative to support UN system wide frameworks to take stock of and build on international commitments to gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
The 2021 Generation Equality Forum was catalytic in unlocking commitments to accelerate the achievement of gender equality, including multiple robust policy, programme, financial and advocacy commitments. The United Republic of Tanzania (U.R.T) is among the participating states that adopted the thematic area on Economic Justice and Rights as a vehicle towards the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. A National Advisory Committee was established in 2021 in the United Republic of Tanzania to work closely with the gender machinery to champion the implementation of the Tanzania’s commitments and to increase investments in the creation of decent care jobs; expand decent work; broaden women’s access to and control over land and other productive resources; and develop and implement economic plans, budget reforms and stimulus packages to reduce the number of women and girls living in poverty by the year 2026.
Tanzania recently joined seven other UN Member States in the Generation Equality Multi-Stakeholder Leadership Group, established to help deliver on the Generation Equality Forum agenda. In October 2022, Tanzania President was invited to cohost the Mid-Point Summit of the Generation Equality Forum to be held on the side-lines of the UN General Assembly in September 2023. The announcement follows Tanzania’s commitment as one of the leaders of the global Generation Equality Forum Action Coalition on Economic Justice and Rights in 2021, and several key achievements in the country in pushing forward women’s economic rights and empowerment in the last year.
It is in this context that UN Women is seeking the services of a Senior GEF Coordination Consultant to support the URT in its role as co-host of the GEF mid-point and several other meetings/tasks leading up to the GEF Summit in 2023.
