Lebanon has submitted its NDC in 2015 and has received further support to improve the assessment, achievement, gender-responsiveness, financing and reporting of its NDC through the Nationally Determined Contribution Support Programme (NDCSP).
Moreover, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment are seen as goals in their own right and are also central to the achievement of UNDP’s development mandate. UNDP is guided in its work by its Gender Equality Strategy 2014-2017 which details how UNDP works towards gender equality in each of the goals and key results set out in the UNDP Strategic Plan 2014-2017.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has also partnered with the Office of the Minister of Women Affairs (OMSWA) to provide technical support to the latter and the Lebanese government in addressing priorities pertaining to women affairs. As such, the following two specific objectives will be focused on preparing a consolidated all-inclusive action plan for the OMSWA to mainstream gender equality at the national level developed; and provide support to the OMSWA to coordinate and implement activities that meet its objectives.
In September 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” based on a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which came into force in January 2016. Lebanon committed to this agenda and UNDP Lebanon has provided support to the Lebanese Government in developing its first Voluntary National Review, which was presented in New York on the 18th of July 2018 during the High Level Political Forum.
By integrating gender into NDC implementation, while keeping in check the SDG (goals 5, 7 and 13 in particular, but not exclusively) its execution becomes improved; The accomplishment and sustainability of the mitigation and adaptation actions in Lebanon’s NDC depends on a comprehensive approach to planning which can be achieved through an integrated policy design approach. This project, through the in-depth gender analysis and subsequent capacity-building, will allow for an integration of gender into climate planning and consequently, a more effective achievement of Lebanon’s NDC.
Therefore, a National Gender Specialist is needed to review and advise on the accomplishment of the gender-climate activities in Lebanon.
Duties and Responsibilities
UNDP is seeking to recruit a National Gender Specialist (hereafter the specialist) for climate change to ensure that gender outputs, activities and considerations are fully implemented as part of and mainstreamed into the project. In addition, he/she will also develop a participatory in-depth gender analysis to refine and inform the execution of gender activities in the 2018/2019 workplan in order to make sure the activities and outputs are gender-responsive and transformational. The specialist should contribute to advancing climate-gender equality and women’s empowerment in Lebanon.
The NDCSP climate-gender activity involves in-depth gender analysis (from legal, policy and institutional perspectives) with the overall objective of making the nationally determined contribution gender-responsive.
