UN Women (UNW), 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, the UN Women leads and coordinates the United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women JCO is committed to supporting the implementation of Jordan’s National Strategy for Women 2020 – 2025 (NSW) developed through an inclusive and consultative process led by the Jordanian National Commission for Women (JNCW) under the supervision of the Inter-Ministerial Committee for Women’s Empowerment (IMC) and endorsed by the Government of Jordan in March 2020 together with the first Governmental Gender Mainstreaming Policy (GMP) and the NSW Addendum that addresses COVID-19 response and recovery efforts from a gender perspective.
The 2020-2025 (NSW) in Jordan offers a roadmap and the Jordanian State's vision towards achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women, in line with SDGs and 2030 Agenda. The NSW will guide national and local priority actions to ensure policies are formulated and necessary budgets are appropriated to realize gender equality.
The Government of Jordan has committed to the design of governmental executive plans for the Strategy and a monitoring and evaluation mechanism for its implementation. The successful implementation of NSW hinges not only on development of action plans, but also on their inclusion within the Governmental Indicative Executive Program (GIEP) and any other relevant national plans such as the Jordan Response Plan (JRP).
In its meeting held in January 2021, the IMC adopted the recommendations of JNCW to integrate the NSW under the GIEP 2021-2024 which is expected to be launched during February 2021. The GIEP is a national planning framework that defines the plans of different ministries and governmental and official institutions.
The process of integrating the NSW under broader cross-sectoral planning structures provides an opportunity for ensuring implementation of the strategy and achieving its expected outcomes and sets the foundations for the gender mainstreaming in other national planning structures through the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework with well defined indicators.
Against this background, UN Women Jordan is seeking to hire a national gender and strategic planning consultant, liaising with JNCW, UN Women and other national and international stakeholders, to support the process of developing the NSW action plan based on a thorough analysis of the GIEP, the SDGs updated roadmap and other related national plans, building the capacities of the technical focal points on concepts and requirements of gender inclusion and integration, provide collective and one-to-one technical support to line ministries and official institutions to finalize and compile the NSW action-plan. Additionally, the national consultant will support the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework with clear indicators that reflect the synergies with SDGs indicators and within a specific timeframe for implementation.
Objective of the Assignment:
The objective of this assignment is to support the i) efficient implementation of the NSW through providing technical advice to line ministries’ and government bodies focal points in identifying programmes and plans under the GIEP that respond to GEWE and opportunities for developing other programmes under different pillars that would achieve this purpose; ii) enhancing line ministries’ sustained internal capacities in integrating GEWE in their future planning processes and in monitoring and evaluating progress from a gender lens taking into account Jordan’s national, regional and international obligations in the field of GEWE and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda; and iii) enhancing national ownership and commitment of both the government and all relevant stakeholders towards the NSW implementation iv) developing a comprehensive action plan 2022-2024 and M&E framework for the NSW, that incorporates all activities, projects and programs in existing national plans for achieving GEWE in Jordan
