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.
Since 2001, UN Women (UNIFEM) has been providing continues support to partners in Georgia to increase meaningful participation of women in conflict prevention, conflict resolution and sustainable peacebuilding processes. Under the current country programme and in line with UN Partnership for Sustainable Development (2016-2020), UN Women supports the government to develop and implement National Action Plans for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security #1325 et al. and to achieve targets of the nationalized SDG 5 and 16.
2020 will mark the 20-year anniversary of the ground-breaking UN Security Council Resolution #1325 — the first resolution to link women’s experiences of conflict to the international peace and security agenda. It focused on the disproportionate impact of conflict on women and girls and called for their engagement in conflict transformation and peacebuilding. The UN Security Council has passed 8 additional resolutions on women, peace and security since the adoption of resolution 1325.
UN Women, with generous support of the UK Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) has been implementing a project “Strengthening Women’s Meaningful Participation in Peacebuilding and Gender Mainstreaming in Security Sector in Georgia”, which aims at enhancing the women’s meaningful participation in peacebuilding, including the internally displaced and conflict-affected women and girls, as well as gender mainstreaming in the policies, procedures and operations of security sector in Georgia. Within this framework, UN Women supports the security sector actors, including the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Internal Affairs to mainstream gender into the Security Sector Reform process and its outcomes.
The outcome of the project is to contribute to the enhancement of women’s meaningful participation in peacebuilding enhanced and to increase duty-bearers’ accountability to implement Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Georgia. To achieve this outcome, the proposed project has two outputs:
Output 1: Capacities of IDP and conflict-affected women and girls are enhanced to meaningfully participate in the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
Output 2: Key security sector partners have enhanced capacities to mainstream gender into their policies, procedures, and operations.
The activities planned under the second output are aimed at achieving transformative change in the government’s effort to implement Women, Peace and Security Agenda; this change will be achieved through improved gender capacities of relevant security sector institutions resulting in gender sensitive policies, procedures and operations.
In order to support consistency and complementarity among planned project activities and results in line with the project outputs and outcome, as well as to facilitate the working process towards the gender mainstreaming in security sector in Georgia, UN Women will recruit an International Consultant, who will work closely with relevant stakeholders on mainstreaming gender into the security sector. International Consultant will be responsible to support the UN Women interventions in the area of Output 2 and will be supported by and is expected to work in a team with National Consultant to be also hired by UN Women.
