UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide. Programming in the Liberia Country Office of UN Women responds to UN Women’s five key thematic areas: expanding women’s voice, leadership and participation; ending violence against women and girls; strengthening implementation of the women, peace and security agenda; enhancing women’s economic empowerment; and making gender equality priorities central to all aspects of national and local development planning.
UN Women’s programmes and projects are implemented within the context of Liberia as a post-conflict country emerging from 14 years of armed conflict with devastating gender dimensions, which continue to pose serious challenges to the achievement of women’s human rights and gender equality in Liberia.
The Monitoring and Evaluation Assistant’s post is two-fold:
About the Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF)
Composed of representatives from donors, United Nations entities, and civil society organizations, the WPHF is a global pooled funding mechanism which aims to re-energize action and stimulate a significant increase in financing for women’s participation, leadership, and empowerment in peace and security processes and humanitarian response. The WPHF is a flexible and rapid financing mechanism. It supports quality interventions designed to enhance the capacity of local women to prevent conflict, respond to crises and emergencies, and seize key peacebuilding opportunities. The overall goal of the WPHF is to achieve peaceful and gender equal societies. Achievement of this goal will require that women are empowered to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from conflict prevention, crisis response, peacebuilding, and recovery.
In Liberia, eight Civil Society Organizations have been selected as Implementing Partners for the WPHF Programme. UN Women acts as the WPHF’s Technical Secretariat at the global level. UN Women also acts as Management Entity for civil society organizations where UN Women has a country presence.
The M&E Assistant will be located at UN Women Liberia Country Office under the direct supervision of the UN Women M&E Specialist and with regard to WPHF Programme, will report to the Programme Specialist, EVAW Unit.
