UN Women’s vision is a world in which societies are free of gender-based discrimination, where women and men have equal opportunities, where women and girls are empowered to lead the change that they want to see, and where women’s rights are upheld in all efforts to further development, human rights, peace and security.
UN Women works to bring about changes in the relationships between women and men in families, communities, societies and countries—inclusive, transformative, sustainable changes that do not represent a “zero-sum” game with winners and losers, but rather a “positive-sum” game that benefits all of humankind.
Gender responsive peacebuilding interventions of the CO were designed to address many of the root causes of the conflict in Liberia by, among other methods, using and strengthening inclusive community based structures and traditional mechanisms for conflict resolution. An important aspect of this was to promote the role of women and their role in management of natural resources, including land and community structures mediating and negotiating conflicts and finding solutions to gender based violence. Specific emphases were put on the sustainable livelihoods for women, and other groups through an inclusive approach that would empower them to engage positively with each other and with local and national institutions including security institutions and the local government.
UN Women Liberia Country office is seeking experienced and qualified evaluation team to conduct the evaluation of its peacebuilding portfolio focusing primarily on minimum two key peacebuilding interventions implemented by the CO in the period 2013-2016. The evaluation will be commissioned by the Country Office (CO) as a formative (forward-looking) evaluation to support the CO and national stakeholders’ strategic learning, decision-making and future peacebuilding programming recommendations.
