UN Women Georgia Country Office has been supporting gender mainstreaming in the Security Sector Reform in Georgia through active cooperation with the Ministry of Defence (MoD). As a result of the cooperation in 2014-2015, 81 MoD staff members, including representatives from the National Guard, National Defence Academy, and general headquarters, were trained in Women, Peace and Security issues; MoD appointed 40 gender advisers who were equipped with relevant information to successfully fulfil their new functions.
In February 2015, UN Women completed the Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) of the MoD, conducted by a team of external PGA facilitators. The PGA findings demonstrated considerable progress in terms of gender mainstreaming and reflection of WPS issues within the MoD system. The Ministry has developed its internal Gender Equality Strategy and Action Plan in compliance with the UNSCR 1325 NAP; steps were taken to institutionalize gender mainstreaming through the appointment of gender advisers in different units of the Ministry, as well as the establishment of an internal coordination council on gender within the Ministry. Furthermore, all the BA-level students or trainees of officer career schools at the National Defence Academy (NDA) attend a 3-hour training session on gender equality issues. Military personnel, before going to international missions, undergo 3 hour pre-deployment training in Women, Peace and Security issues. The staff of MoD is regularly trained at the Defence Academy on the issues of UNSCR 1325 and other related resolutions.
In the light of the foregoing, UN Women intends to further assist the MoD and NDA to develop two training manuals which will be institutionalized by the MoD/NDA: one manual for 3 hour training for BA students (covering all aspects/pillars of WPS) at the NDA and one 3 hour pre-deployment training manual for the MoD military personnel (especially focusing on GBV in the context of conflict/post-conflict). For this purpose, UN Women plans to recruit a national consultant to develop training manuals on Women, Peace and Security issues for students of the NDA and MoD military personnel. The national consultant will be assisted by a team of two experts (from MoD and NDA), who will contribute to tailoring the manual to the needs of the MoD and NDA. In addition, UN Women will provide the consultant with training Modules/materials developed by UN Women globally to review them and adapt to the Georgian context.
The Expert will have the following objectives/tasks:
