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. Placing women's rights at the center 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. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors. Generation Equality is a multi-stakeholder initiative convened by UN Women to catalyze partners, increase investments for gender equality, drive results and accelerate the full and effective implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the Sustainable Development Goals. The initiative also aims to sustain and expand a movement of support for gender equality with civil society and youth leadership and activism at its heart. Generation Equality is fully embedded in UN Women’s Strategic Plan and aims to accelerate the achievement of results contained therein, notably by operationalizing the Strategic Plan’s vision of achieving results through partnerships. Generation Equality is also recognized by the Secretary-General’s “Common Agenda” as an important initiative for the UN system to take stock of and build on.

During the 2021 Generation Equality Forum, the Action Coalitions were launched to take on six critical issues that underpin gender equality. Along with the Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action (WPS-HA Compact), they are a set of global, innovative, multi-stakeholder partnerships mobilizing the world to catalyze collective action; spark global and local conversations among generations; drive increased public and private investment; and deliver concrete, game-changing results for girls and women. Concerted effort, investments and accountability together with sustained solidarity for action is required to secure the gains secured at the Forums in Mexico and Paris, as well as ensure new momentum and commitments.

Critical for the success of Generation Equality and the Action Coalitions is a well-resourced Accountability Framework of the Action Coalitions. Established through consultations with Generation Equality Stakeholders, the Action Coalitions Monitoring and Accountability Framework outlines the efforts required to hold Action Coalition Leaders and Commitment Makers accountable for the pledges made towards a better life for women and girls. 

The Framework is anchored in the Action Coalition’s Global Acceleration Plan for Gender Equality that outlines bold results that are to be achieved for each Action Coalition by 2026. The Monitoring and Accountability Framework for the Action Coalitions include four elements:

•             Annual reporting on implementation of COMMITMENTS 

•             Biannual assessment of progress towards the global TARGETS set by blueprints in the Global Acceleration Plan

•             Assessment of the extent Generation Equality reflects transformative PROCESSES

•             STORIES OF IMPACT that demonstrate experience of challenges and change


UN Women is the custodian of the Action Coalition Monitoring and Accountability Framework which is led by the Research and Data Section in the Policy, Programme and Intergovernmental Division. Under the supervision of the Accountability Framework Lead, the consultant will be responsible for supporting implementation of the 2024 Annual reporting survey on the implementation of COMMITMENTS. Specifically, the consultant will be responsible for implementing the survey using Survey Solutions, support testing, monitoring survey completion, supporting data management and providing relevant technical support to the Accountability framework team as needed. The ultimate goal is to increase the response rate by commitment makers and increase ownership and accountability of the Generation Equality initiative. 

The consultant will be reporting to the Accountability Framework Lead in the Research and Data Section (70%) with secondary supervision by the Project Management Specialist, Generation Equality Coordination Hub (20%) and by the Thematic Lead for GE Technology and Innovation (10%) , and will be supported by Programme Associate, who will be the point of contact on the contract and payment issues.
