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 West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO) is covering 24 countries, with offices in 10 countries. Ending violence against women (EVAW) is a priority area for the region which aims to advance integrated approaches to ensure that all women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence. This includes support to Member States, civil society and other partners to advance and monitor comprehensive, evidence-driven approaches to preventing violence against women and girls and ensuring coordinated multi-sectoral quality services are available to survivors, while promoting accountability to legal and policy commitments, in addition to support for women’s rights and civil society movements, with attention to intersectionality and leaving no one behind.
The Generation Equality Action Coalition on GBV has galvanized governments, CSOs, international organizations, philanthropies and the private sector to deliver transformational progress towards the elimination and prevention of GBV through four concrete actions: (1) Creating enabling policy, legal and resource environments; (2) Scaling up evidence driven prevention programming; (3) Scaling up comprehensive, accessible and quality services for survivors; and (4) Enabling and empowering autonomous girl-led & women’s rights organizations to exercise their expertise. In this context UN Women is partnering with the European Union and the UN Trust Fund to end VAW to implement a new programme to strengthen coalition building and advocacy to end gender-based violence against women and girls.
Under the guidance of the Policy and Programme Management Specialist, (EVAW HQ) and the direct supervision of WCARO Regional Policy Specialist (EVAW), the Regional Programme Coordinator is responsible for the coordination and implementation of all regional components of the new EU programme that UN Women is implementing with the UN Trust Fund. This includes, establishing, nurturing and managing partnerships with regional women’s rights and feminist coalitions, other development actors and multistakeholder partners to advance a shared advocacy agenda on ending violence against women and girls. They will provide technical guidance and support to civil society organizations (CSOs) and women’s rights organizations (WROs) on advocacy strategies, coordinating and convening advocacy spaces and coalition building at the regional level and leverage opportunities to elevate and amplify advocacy priorities at the global level. The Regional Coordinator will also oversee all knowledge generation and research that is undertaken in the region as part of this initiative, ensuring the technical quality of all regional advocacy and knowledge products. The Regional Coordinator will also be responsible for ensuring progress against the results framework, performance indicators and the monitoring and reporting of the financial situation and personnel of the programme to ensure delivery rates, targets and results are on track.

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.
