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.
UN Women implemented a three-year programme entitled ‘Promoting Women’s Political Leadership and Governance in India (from 2011 to 2014), aimed at empowering elected women representatives in local governance to make public policy and resource allocation patterns responsive to women’s human rights. Phase I of the Governance Programme was a demand-driven programme implemented, in partnership with the Ministry of Panchayati Raj and select state governments, to build capacities of elected women panchayat leaders across 5 states in collaboration with state governments, trainings institutions and civil society organizations. Through the projects, efforts were also made to strengthen women’s collectives and creating linkages with local institutions. The larger objective was to open up and activate spaces and initiatives for public participation, by mobilizing and supporting women to engage with public institutions such as the Gram Sabha. Significant results were achieved with regard to increasing political participation of women through the activation of Gram Sabha, organization of Mahila Sabhas with the help of motivators, and training of EWRs and other functionaries.
UN Women is currently implementing the second phase of the programme, entitled, From Opportunities to Capacities: A Multi-Sectoral Approach to Enhancing Gender Responsive Governance (from 2015 to 2018). The second phase of the programme aims to build a body of evidence, to inform and enhance the capacity of governance institutions to better respond to the real opportunities for gender equality and women’s empowerment that have been created through progressive legislation, policies and programmes. These enhanced governance capacities should lead to better outcomes for women.
The programme is being implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Panchayati Raj across six states, namely Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Odisha.
In this context the proposed programme will work towards strengthening capacities of national and sub national governments for gender responsive design and implementation of key schemes and policies, so as to ensure better outcomes for women especially those from the most marginalized communities. This will be operationalized through strengthening training institutions (at the national and sub-national level such as NIRD&PR and SIRDs); and developing effective mechanisms to build capacities of elected representatives and functionaries of the Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs).
UN Women partnered with NIRD&PR during the first phase of its programme on GRG. The overarching goal of the program was to create an enabling environment to empower Elected Women Representatives of Panchayati Raj Institutions to become change agents in political decision making for promotion of gender equality.
In the second phase of the programme the NIRD & PR and UN Women partnership will consolidate these efforts towards institutional strengthening in PRIs.
In connection with the above tasks, UN Women will place a Programme Analyst at the Centre for Gender Studies & Development (CGAD), NIRD & PR. The Programme Analyst will be placed in NIRD & PR and will directly report to the Director General, NIRD & PR; under the overall supervision of the Programme Specialist (Governance), UN Women

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. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
