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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of its efforts, UN Women is mandated to lead and coordinate United Nations’ system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming are translated into action. It is also mandated to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women in Tanzania is partnering with Prime Minister’s Office to implement Five-year National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children (NPA-VAWC; 2017/18 – 2021/22). The Plan aims at eliminating all forms of violence against women and children in Tanzania by 50 percent by 2021/22.
The Comprehensive NPA VAWC was developed through a consultative and comprehensive process that galvanized stakeholders to conceive of an action plan that considers the lessons learned, best practices, and new innovative measures to address violence against women and children in Tanzania. The plan consists of 8 areas of implementation developed using the INSPIRE MODEL that need different supporting tools to deliver desired goals, such as Coordination Guideline for VAWC Committee Establishment; Monitoring and Evaluation Plan for monitoring VAWC interventions, reporting and data generation; and an NPA – VAWC Communication Strategy for addressing stereotypes and harmful traditional practices through tailored messaging in community settings.
The fundamental challenges have been experienced in implementation of NPA VAWC is inadequate number and skill level of responsible government staff to undertake both VAWC prevention and response interventions, especially at LGAs levels. To meet these challenges and to ensure that government MDAs and LGAs can deliver what is needed, a new approach to capacity development is required on two (2) different levels:
(i) Enabling government staff responsible for implementing the NPA VAWC to gain the knowledge, skills, and competencies required to perform their work well and build individual capacity in promoting women’s rights and gender equality; and
(ii) Creating an enabling environment to ensure sustained availability of dedicated government staff to rollout the NPA –VAWC.
Implementation of the NPA – VAWC needs a number of actors ranging from technical experts who are responsible for provision of education, capacity building, and support services to victims of abuse and communities. The NPA – VAWC implementation requires commitment on both financial and human resources at all levels. In that regard, the Government with other stakeholders took the initiative to mobilize resources by advocating that Ministries, Regional and LGAs allocate funding to support NPA –VAWC execution in respective LGAs.
