Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. UN Women provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors. Through a set of tested approaches, UN Women proposes to build synergies over the humanitarian-development continuum by strengthening women’s agency, leadership, and participation to rebuild the lives of women and girls in crisis and conflict, and disaster contexts. This will contribute to Goal 4 of UN Women’s Strategic Plan: peace and security, humanitarian action and disaster risk reduction are shaped by women leadership and participation.
The peace and security and humanitarian context in Mozambique is becoming increasingly complex and protracted, with significant long-term impacts. War, violent conflict, terrorism and violent extremism have differential and devastating consequences for women and girls. Intersectional vulnerabilities can further determine how people are affected, among others, women with disabilities, women head of households, adolescent girls, and older women. Pre-existing gender-based discrimination and inequalities exacerbate the impact of the crisis on women and girls and reduce their likelihood to receiving the humanitarian services they need to survive and recover. Gender inequality tends to worsen in the insecure and violent contexts. In the face of this, women have the capacity and are leading movements for peace and to rebuild communities. In fact, there is strong evidence suggesting that women’s participation in peace processes contributes to longer, more resilient peace after conflict. Yet, despite this, women remain largely invisible to, and excluded from, peace processes and negotiations.
UN Women Country Office in Mozambique, in partnership with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Action (MGCAS) and with support from the kingdom of Norway is embarking in its second phase of the implementation of the NAP1325 with the aim to ensure that women and girls contribute to and thave greater influence in building sustainable peace and resilience, and to benefit equally from the prevention of conflicts and disasters in Mozambique. The project’s main outcome is to ensure that more commitments on women, peace and security are implemented by the Government of Mozambique and the UN System, and more gender equality advocates influence peace and security processes, contribute to crisis response, and create resilience. The project intends to fostering meaningful participation of women in leadership, political, peace and security processes, crisis response and resilience.
More especially the project seeks to: (1) Empower women and gender equality advocates to have greater influence in decision-making in political, peace and security processes, contribute to crisis response, and create resilience; (2) Build the capacity of the Government of Mozambique to implement Women, Peace and Security (WPS) commitments and ensure monitoring and accountability frameworks are in place at national, regional and provincial levels; (3) Foster greater coordination of the implementation of WPS commitments; and (4) Facilitate the access to sustainable livelihoods and socioeconomic opportunities to women affected by conflict.
