Organizational Context 

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.

Established in July 2010 by the United Nations General Assembly Resolution A / 64/289, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), is implementing actions to the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; women's empowerment; and achieving equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. The mandate of UN Women is to lead and coordinate the United Nations system to ensure that gender equality commitments are translated into action around the world. It provides strong and consistent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts and builds effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

UN Women has a programme presence in Central African Republic (CAR) since July 2015 and is in the process of becoming a full country office in 2021, to support the Central African authorities in advancing gender equality and women's empowerment as well as providing a multisectoral response to the specific needs of women in times of crisis for the implementation of the recommendations made by women on the side lines of the Bangui Forum in May 2015. It focuses its interventions on achieving the following strategic objectives: women's economic empowerment; promoting leadership and women's participation in decision-making processes, strengthening women’s role for peace and security in CAR; the integration of the gender dimension in the humanitarian response; and the fight against violence against women.

UN Women works to support women’s engagement in peace and security to promote improved implementation, and monitoring and reporting of global commitments on women and peace and security, including as set out in Beijing Platform for Action and in Security Council resolutions 1325 (2000), 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2009), 1960 (2010), 2122 (2013) and 2242 (2015), relevant Statements by the President of the Security Council, as well as related accountability frameworks established by the UN system. The UN Women works to strengthen the capacity of actors engaged in inclusive peacebuilding and national dialogue processes to enhance women’s participation and influence and to secure gender-equality outcomes. In this regard, UN Women supports inclusive engagement of women in all stages of negotiation, signature and implementation of the 2019 Peace Accord while pursuing advocacy for the effective participation of women in peacebuilding and community social cohesion mechanisms at national levels.

Cognizant of the difficult humanitarian situation of CAR (among the worst humanitarian crisis worldwide) and the over-representation of women among the most vulnerable, UN Women supports the humanitarian country team in providing inclusive assistance to those that need it while addressing the exacerbation of gender inequality and discrimination due to the conflict and humanitarian context, including through implementing a Peace-Humanitarian-Development Nexus programming and supporting Durable Solutions to displaced people including livelihood based solutions. As a new member of the Humanitarian Country Team, UN Women is expected to provide increased support through emergency interventions, as well as ensure the local implementation of its new Humanitarian Strategy 2022-2025.

While Central African Republic remains one of the worst humanitarian crises, the country is currently struck by internal and external new crises which are affecting a vast majority of women and girls. Since April 2023, the northern parts of the country, particularly north-east (Vakaga and Haute-Kotto) and north-west (Ouham and Lim-Pendé), have seen successive influx of asylum-seekers, fleeing the conflicts in Sudan and Chad, establishing in already vulnerable communities, and in flooding-prone areas. Out of the estimated 55,000 people who have fled their respective countries, including central African returnees, women and children represent at least 85% (and up to 98% in some groups). These crises, and particularly in Sudan, have also disrupted supply value chains and lead to stark increase of prices on the markets in neighboring Prefectures (Vakaga particularly), which heightened the food insecurity in these areas and appeared as source of tension between forcibly displaced persons (refugees, asylum-seekers, and internally displaced persons IDPs), returnees, and host communities over the limited resources available.

Following thorough needs analysis conducted as part of Japan funded project (Vakaga and Haute-Kotto), and as part of humanitarian team assessments (Ouham and Lim-Pendé), to address the needs of the majority of women that are victims of displacement and stretched host communities, as well as supporting the capacity of women and women organisations in providing emergency response, UN Women, with support from the Government, will implement the project “Providing emergency support to mitigate the impact of regional crises (Sudan, Chad) on women and girls and their communities in North-western and north-eastern parts of CAR”. Through the 12 months project, the following expected results:

  1. Increase the access of at least 35 000 people (asylum-seekers, internally displaced and returnees as well as host communities) to basic social services and their social protection, especially women and girls and supporting integration of gender in emergency humanitarian interventions;
  2. Support food security for women and girls and their families in the most affected communities;
  3. Provide protection mechanisms, prevent community violence and foster social cohesion between the incoming and host populations, through nexus-approach and community-based initiatives piloted by women.

Reporting to the Women, Peace, Security and Humanitarian Action Programme Manager, the Humanitarian Analyst will contribute to the effective coordination of the humanitarian activities of UN Women Country Office, particularly in the context of the implementation of the Project “Providing emergency support to mitigate the impact of regional crises (Sudan, Chad) on women and girls and their communities in North-western and north-eastern parts of CAR”. The Humanitarian Analyst will support coordination and monitoring of the implementation of our humanitarian field interventions, providing technical and capacity support to humanitarian actors, as well as develop relevant knowledge products on humanitarian action.
