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 (2000) — the first resolution to link women’s experiences of conflict to the international peace and security agenda. In April 2019, at the High-Level Commitments event on Women, Peace and Security preparing for the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, Government of Georgia pledged to increase women’s participation in the Geneva International Discussions (GID) up to 50 per cent before October 2020. The mentioned commitment of the Government of Georgia creates an enabling environment for capacity development of women involved in peace tracks and further ensures women’s effective and meaningful participation in peace processes.
In this context, UN Women plans to provide a targeted capacity development of the women who are already engaged or will be engaged in formal negotiation mechanisms Geneva International Discussions (GID) and Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM), as well as in informal peace tracks. In particular, UN Women will hire an international consultant to support the LEPL Levan Mikeladze Diplomatic Training and Research Institute (Mikeladze Institute) under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia to achieve the following objectives:
The intervention will aim at contributing to increased understanding on women’s role in peace processes, importance, effectiveness and sustainability of an inclusive peace process, and innovative strategies to transform the conflict and achieve durable peace.
