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 center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.

UN Women is working to support the government of Lebanon and national stakeholders, within a UN joint programme in partnership with FAO and UNDP, “Gender Responsive National Budgeting and Private Investing for SDG2-Zero Hunger”. The project seeks to ensure that the national stakeholders, including the Government of Lebanon, donor partners, and the private sector invest adequately in an equitable, gender responsive and transparent manner to maximize opportunities for vulnerable men and women in Lebanon. The project aims to change the budgeting culture within the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Finance, to allow integration of gender responsive budgeting within all cycles.
To ensure gender responsiveness, UN Women aims to provide robust gender analysis and expertise to support the Ministry of Agriculture. This will include reviewing selected project’s budgets and providing analysis to ensure ministerial budgeting is gender responsive withholding international GRB standards.
UN Women will provide Gender Responsive Budgeting analysis in coordination with the Ministry of Agriculture, to assess all related programs in terms of gender relevance and effectiveness, which will be followed by the development of criteria and recommendations to ensure prioritization of GRB practices in budget formation. UN Women will also provide support to partner UN agencies in mainstreaming gender responsiveness throughout project activities.
To accomplish the above, UN Women is looking to hire a part-time Gender expert, with strong experience and understanding working on agricultural issues and Gender Responsive Budgeting, to provide analysis, reviews, develop roadmaps and recommendations, while ensuring gender is mainstreamed throughout the implementation of the project.
