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.
Aligned with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UN Women is implementing GIZ’s Fund to Promote Innovation in Agriculture (i4Ag) to economically empower women farmers in the rice value-chain in the context of climate change. This fund promotes innovations in the agriculture and food sector, focusing on six key areas of mechanisation, digitalisation, renewable energy, research and extension, cooperation with the private sector and agricultural policy. This project will promote methodologies for reducing carbon emissions in rice cultivation and to show scaling potential in aggregating smallholder farmers. It involves multiple implementing partners who will train and support farmers on approved emissions-reducing rice farming methods as well as those non-approved methods of mitigation with the aim of enabling project beneficiary farmers to see improved resiliency from carbon credit generation, along with a higher proportion of trained female farmers in the community. UN Women’s component will entail reviewing existing training content on agriculture/climate resilient to integrate gender and organizing gender trainings to promote women’s economic empowerment focussing on women’s increasing leadership, voice, choice and agency.
The Programme will contribute to the following outcomes: i) More women farmers in the rice value chain have increased access to climate resilient technologies, methodologies, and skills; ii) Women’s voice, agency and capacities are strengthened to transform climate sensitive agricultural practices into enhanced livelihoods (diversified economic opportunities, increased incomes, and resilience); iii) Strengthened availability of sex-disaggregated data to inform gender responsive climate sensitive agricultural practices.
In this context, the Programme Associate will work under the guidance and direct supervision of the Programme Analyst – CORE and overall supervision of Country Programme Manager (SCE), to support in management of programme activities and coordinate with relevant team members, including the operations team, implementing partner organisations and government officials, to ensure successful implementation of Programmes.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
