UN Women Country Office in Georgia in close partnership and with financial support of the Swiss Development Cooperation Agency is implementing the project “Partnership for Women’s Economic Empowerment in South Caucasus” in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. The expected project results will support implementation of UN Framework Agreements concluded between UN agencies, funds and programmes and respective governments in the target countries. The Inception Phase of the project commenced in the beginning of November 2017 with primary objective of establishing project baselines, refining project targets in further consultation with key stakeholders in the three countries. The inception phase will last until the end of June 2018 resulting in the finalization of agreements and work plans with project’s responsible parties.
The main phase of the project aims to contribute to the following outcome - women, particularly the poor and socially excluded, have increased economic security and access to livelihood and development opportunities, and meaningfully participate in decision-making processes. This outcome will be attained through the achievement of the following three outputs:
Output 1: Women in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, particularly the poor and socially excluded, have increased access to information, skills-building and sustainable economic opportunities, and participate in and contribute to local and regional development;
Output 2: Mechanisms and staff capacities of selected ministries/ state institutions in Armenia and Georgia are strengthened to develop and deliver gender-responsive programmes and services, strategies and plans for women’s economic empowerment, and women’s organizations effectively influence and participate in these processes;
Output 3: Legislative and policy frameworks in Armenia and Georgia are reviewed in line with international human rights standards and commitments on women’s economic empowerment and are based on gender analysis and sex-disaggregated data
In Georgia, the project activities will be implemented directly by UN Women, while project activities in Armenia and Azerbaijan will be implemented by UN Women Responsible Parties to be selected in the inception phase of the project.
During the project inception phase in order to support consistency, complementarity and synergy among planned project activities and results in the target countries - in line with the project outputs and outcome and national development frameworks and priorities, as well as to ensure that all the relevant stakeholders are included in the project design and implementation, UN Women plans to hire national consultant in Armenia to conduct gender analysis of rural development and agriculture policies in Armenia.
