The UN Women Cambodia Country Office (CCO) Strategic Note (SN) 2019-2023 focuses on three key priorities to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). The first priority is to strengthen government capacity and accountability to integrate international norms and commitments (CEDAW, SDGs, Beijing PfA, Sendai) into national legislative and regulatory frameworks, including supporting dialogue and CSO engagement in accountability for GEWE commitments. The second area of focus is Ending Violence Against Women where CCO’s focus includes creating an enabling environment to prevent, respond to and prosecute all forms of GBV as well as ensuring that marginalised women who experience violence, including women migrant workers, access services and protections. Thirdly, CCO works to enhance gender responsiveness in climate change action and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). A focus on empowerment, women’s leadership, challenging negative gender norms and leaving no one behind runs through the programme.
In order to equip and empower young women in Cambodia, CCO initiated a Youth Leadership Academy in 2017 which has empowered young professional women in different fields to co-create and design the content and approach for a feminist leadership development programme that fits the current Cambodia context. In early 2019, the core group successfully completed co-creation of the Youth Leadership Academy curriculum and this will be used with two cohorts of young women from various backgrounds in 2019-2020. Therefore, CCO is looking for a local consultant to co-lead in coordinating and conducting groups of young women (Youth Leadership Academy Group One and Group Two).
