Striving to ensure that the national reform agenda, policies and public institutions respond equally to the rights and needs of women and men, girls and boys UN Women implements a number of projects to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment in the implementation and monitoring of the reforms.
The project “Advancing Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment through Decentralization Reform of Ukraine” funded by the Government of Canada supports the consolidated efforts of the national mechanism for gender equality, the Ministry of Communities and Territorial Development of Ukraine, the National Parliament (Verkhovna Rada), the Ombudsperson Office of Ukraine, four pilot regional state administrations (RSAs) and 13 territorial communities (TCs) in Chernivtsi, Kherson, Sumy and Volyn regions, women’s groups and civil society organizations (CSOs) in the implementation of the national gender equality priorities through decentralization reform. The project contributes to an increased responsiveness of the decentralized services to the differentiated needs of women, girls, men and boys, thus achieving transformative results for gender equality and women’s empowerment in Ukraine.
The project provides policy advise and capacity development support to the national stakeholders in developing, implementing and monitoring the gender and human-rights responsive legislation and policies framework on decentralization and sustainable regional development. These efforts support the national stakeholders in ensuring that the decentralization reform and regional and local development are compliant with international standards on gender equality such as CEDAW, BPfA, and is in line with the national frameworks on gender equal rights and opportunities, such as the localized Sustainable Development Goals, the State Social Program on Equal Rights and Opportunities of Women and Men, the National Action Plan for the Implementation of the UNSC Resolution 1325. In 2020, the project supported the Ministry of Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine (MCTD) in the gender mainstreaming of the State Strategy of Regional Development 2021-2027 (SSRD), which resulted in the formulation of Operational Goal #5 on ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men, preventing and combating domestic violence and discrimination. The project also supported NGO Poruch on conducting a comprehensive GE and HRBA institutional capacity assessment of the MCTD, four pilot RSAs and 13 TCs.
To inform policy and programmatic measures of key stakeholders and ensure recognition of women’s contribution to the crisis response, UN Women conducted Rapid Gender Assessment of the Situation and Needs of Women in the Context of COVID-19 (RGA) in 2020. In addition, the project provided contribution to other UN system reports on socio-economic impact of the pandemic to women from vulnerable groups. The reports included immediate and long-term policy recommendations to the national stakeholders on ensuring gender-sensitive response to the pandemic and related socio-economic crisis at the national, regional and local level.
To provide a continuous technical and capacity building support to the national stakeholders, UN Women seeks to hire a National Consultant on Gender mainstreaming of decentralization and regional development policy/Team Leader.
