UN Women, based on the vision of equality enshrined in the United Nations Charter, works towards 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, peace, and security.
Since 2013, the UN Women Office in Bolivia has been established as a country office with the objective of strengthening its presence to adequately respond to the challenges that the country faces in women's empowerment and the advancement of their rights.
UN Women is the United Nations organization dedicated to promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women. As a global advocate for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress that will lead to improved living conditions for women and to address the needs they face worldwide.
UN Women Bolivia supports women's economic empowerment based on international commitments such as the Beijing Platform for Action, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and the 2030 Agenda, particularly Sustainable Development Goals 5 and 8. UN Women also builds on the growing evidence that gender equality contributes significantly to boosting economies and sustainable development. In this context, UN Women is initiating the implementation of a project, “Strengthening Women’s Business Capacity in Gender-Responsive Normative Framework in Bolivia” funded by KOICA that aims to i) 1) Enhancing the business capabilities of the vulnerable women in Bolivia; and 2) Improving women's rights through the improvement of unequal domestic labor.
In pursuit of these goals, UN Women aims to promote efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability. Therefore, it is seeking to hire a Monitoring and Reporting Analyst that will work under the supervision of the Women’s Economic Empowerment Programme Specialist. Its main functions are related to monitoring and reporting the activities of the Project “Strengthening Women’s Business Capacity in Gender-Responsive Normative Framework in Bolivia” funded by KOICA, including providing technical support to the implementation of the Country Office strategic note. Moreover, it is expected to support the development of planned and implemented objectives by UN Women in the Economic Empowerment Area, following the organization's mandate and ensuring appropriate quality standards.

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.
