The UNDP has been supporting the justice sector and Human Rights through partnership with Ministry of Justice of Mozambique for almost 2 decades.
The ast Project ran from January 2012 to December 2017, with an overall budget of about US$ 3,000,000. The project supported various justice institutions including the Supreme Court, the Attorney General’s Office, the Correctional Services, the Directorate for Human Rights, the Free Legal Aid Institute, and the National Human Rights Commission, under the coordination of the Directorate of Administration of Justice in the Ministry of Justice, Constitutional and Religious Affairs.
The Project aimed to contribute to the strengthening of the Access to Justice, Rule of Law and Human Rights protection in Mozambique, by focusing on 3 main priorities:
Supporting the process of introducing or strengthening innovative justice instruments (such as alternatives to imprisonment, existing Palaces of Justice and free legal aid) and enabling Justice Institutions to more effectively implement their mandate;
Increasing the awareness of vulnerable groups on human rights and justice services and;
Supporting the establishment of the National Commission on Human Rights.
The Project was submitted to a final evaluation in the last quarter of 2017. The evaluation concluded that, all the components of the Project continued to be relevant to the country’s justice priorities, to the government priorities and it continued to require international support.
Furthermore, and prior to the final evaluation, UNDP had started with an internal process of formulation of the Project Document for the current phase (2017-2020), which needs to be finalized based on the findings of the final evaluation, the reality on the ground and the UNDP directives on Project formulation.
In view of the above, the UNDP in Mozambique is looking for two consultants (one international – Team Leader) and one National consultant to finalize the formulation of the full project document on its support to Access to Justice and Human Rights.

Furthermore, the consultants will be required to conduct and facilitate a validation workshop, where they will present the proposed strategy and key actions. To finalize the project document, the consultant will be required to include the relevant inputs and feedback received from stakeholders during the workshop (verbal and written).
The desk review, should include a strong understanding of UNDP Strategic Plan (specifically regarding the thematic focus and targeting) and Integrated Result and Resource framework, a deep understanding of UNDP new Project Quality Assurance criteria, as the project will be assessed using these criteria, and a deep understanding of the new monitoring policy and requirements.
