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.
UN Women Burundi's Strategic Note 2019-2023 aligns with UN Women's Global Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the National Development Plan 2018-2027, the National Gender Policy (PNG) and UNSC Resolution 1325 action plans for 2017-2021, UNDAF (2019-2023) and the United Nations Resilience Framework. It captures the triple mandate of UN WOMEN (Normative, Coordination and Programmatic) aimed at supporting government and partners to achieve lasting results for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, building on its comparative advantages.
The strategic note prioritizes three outcomes: i) Women peace mediators and other gender equality advocates participate in conflict prevention and resolution and influence decision-making and intervention processes in a favorable environment; ii) Women, including those living in refugee and internally displaced persons camps and others in vulnerable situations, benefit from increased security and protection, physical and mental health and their fundamental rights respected under ratified regional and international instruments; iii) Women and girls participate in and benefit from socio-economic recovery activities in the context of peace and resilience building.
Hence, UN Women Burundi is structured in three main components: (1) Women Peace and Security (WPS); (2) End of Violence Against Women and Girls/Human Rights and (3) Women Economic Empowerment (WEE).
Reporting to the Country Representative, the Executive Assistant is responsible for providing a variety of executive administrative support to the UN Women Country Representative maintaining full confidentiality in all aspects of assignment and, in close coordination with the Country Office management and staff, for managing the efficient flow of information and communications to ensure expeditious dissemination of information, timely action and compliance with established deadlines.
