In line with UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the UN Women Egypt office is contributing to three interdependent and interconnected outcomes:
• Women lead, participate in, and benefit equally from governance systems
• Women have income security, decent work, and economic autonomy
• All women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence.
UN Women Egypt Country Office, in partnership with the Government of Egypt and with the financial support of the Government of the United Kingdom, is supporting a programme entitled
“Egyptian Women’s Empowerment: Development of National Action Plan 1325”. Under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cairo International Centre for Conflict Resolution, Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding (CCCPA) and the National Council for Women (NCW) are supporting the development of the country’s first Women, Peace and Security National Action Plan, through a consultative process with key national stakeholders.
Women, Peace, and Security is central to realizing women’s rights and gender equality. In this context, UN Women in Egypt will support Egypt’s efforts to translate the WPS agenda from policy to practice and will work to support relevant institutions, including partnering with CCCPA in the conducting training around how to integrated gender equality principles into peacebuilding, peacekeeping, and conflict resolution at the regional levels in the Arab region and the African continent.
Founded in 1994 by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and re-charted in June 2017 by a Prime Ministerial Decree, CCCPA, is an Egyptian public agency specialized in training, capacity building, and research in the fields of peace and security. In addition to adopting a gender-sensitive approach in all its programs and activities, CCCPA is at the forefront of regional efforts of building African and Arab capacities on issues of women, peace, and security since 2013. In addition to its training materials on Conflict Resolution (Dialogue, Negotiation, and Mediation), CCCPA has developed a Gender Mainstreaming in Peacemaking, Peacekeeping, and Peacebuilding Training Manual and Toolkit” in 2016/2017, which has been used to enhance the implementation of the WPS agenda in Africa and Arab Region. This tool kit includes modules around gender concepts; international and regional policy frameworks, norms, and standards; mainstreaming gender equality principles into the peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution processes including mediation.
With the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020, and with the evolution of regional and global experiences around gender mainstreaming in peacebuilding, peacekeeping, and conflict resolution processes, the CCCPA is seeking to upgrade its current training tools to reflect the emerging best practices and also within the context of mitigating the impact COVID-19 on women’s leadership and the implementation of the women, peace and security agenda.
To this end, UN Women is recruiting an international expert to update the CCCPA Training materials on Gender and Mediation to reflect evolving practices, tools, and case studies, and to integrate how COVID-19 may be impacting Gender and Mediation, and measures to be taken to ensure women’s voice and leadership in the mediation processes.
