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.
Cameroon country office has adopted its new strategic note for the period 2018-2020 with a focus on Governance, women economic empowerment, EVAWG and Humanitarian interventions. The centrality of gender to achieving sustainable development goals has been a core guiding principle in the definition of strategic priorities, indicators under each thematic area and operational strategies. In the operational strategies of the SN 2018-2020, it is ensured that the most vulnerable women groups are targeted to “leave no woman behind”.
The Strategic note is aligned with the UNDAF 2018-2020 and its implementing strategy “delivery as one”. UNWOMEN continues to play a critical role (leader and active member) in the joint action plans, the Programme Management Team (PMT), the Gender Thematic Group, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) and United Nations Country Team (UNCT).
The strategic note is also aligned with the global SP, the All Africa Strategy and relevant FPIs. Operating in a low middle-income country, the country office puts an emphasis on technical support to the Government and its partners as well as policy dialogue and advocacy with Civil society organizations.
Reporting to the Country Representative, Cameroon, the Deputy Country Representative is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Cameroon Country Office. The incumbent is responsible for substantially contributing to the design, implementation, management and oversight of the country programme and to the operations supporting its implementation to ensure effective and efficient delivery of results as planned in UN Women’s Strategic Plan and the CO plans.

Required Skills and Experience
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.
