The UN Women (UNW), 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, the UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The Somali Compact (2014-2016) sets the framework for Somalia’s pathway towards recovery, within five overall peace and state building goals (PSGs). Funding arrangements are organized as Multi-Partner Trust Funds (MPTF) which goes towards funding overall programs. The UN has established an Integrated Strategic Framework (ISF) (2014-2016) to guide the strategic management of UN’s political, development, human rights and security engagements in Somalia in responding to the Somali Compact. The ISF is meant to lead to ensuring maximization of limited resources and a more coherent and focused engagement with Somali authorities and international partners on shared strategic objectives.
UN Women started building its country program in 2013 with the 2014-2016 Strategic Note, which is currently being revised to fit with the Somali New Deal, the ISF, UN Women global flagships introduced in 2015, and the Sustainable Development Goals. With core funding from the Government of Sweden and project funding from the Government of Norway and the Peace Building Fund, UN Women during the past 18 months established sub-offices in Mogadishu, Garowe and Hargeisa, has grown from two to 13 staff, and has started implementing programs addressing gender equality and the women, peace and security agenda. UN Women has committed institutional budget to the Somalia Country Programme from 2016, and UN Women Somalia has mobilized joint program funds from the MPTS.
In the effort to further deepen and strengthen UN Women engagement in Somalia across its thematic focus areas, and in particular to enable UN Women to play a strategic role in the overall monitoring of results on gender equality, and women, peace and security at ISF level, UN Women will recruit a Programme Manager for Strategic Monitoring and Reporting.

It also requires the ability to forge mutually reinforcing partnerships with relevant Government counterparts, UN organizations, CSOs, and with bilateral and non-traditional donors in order to promote inter-agency partnerships, support for UN reform, and mobilization of visibility and resources to advance gender equality and women's empowerment.
The Programme Manager reports to the UN Women Country Programme Manager who provides the strategic leadership, guidance and oversight of programs and operations, formulation and execution of UN Women strategic programs and plans of actions in line with UN Women and UN development efforts in the country.

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.
