UN Women Zimbabwe, the African Union and the Embassy of Ireland in South Africa have been supporting the African Women Leaders Network (AWLN) Zimbabwe Chapter since its launch in February 2020. AWLN is an “action-oriented initiative that seeks to enhance the leadership of African women in bringing transformative changes focusing on peace, security and development in the continent.” The aim of the National Chapter of the AWLN in Zimbabwe is to create a network of a diverse group of women who can work together to hold leaders accountable to commitments for gender equality and support each other in their work on women, peace and security and women in governance. The first phase of the project will end in May 2021.
Following its launch under the theme ‘Peace and Social Cohesion for Zimbabwe’s Sustainable Development’ and inception, the AWLN Zimbabwe Chapter carried out a number of key activities, linked to its mandate, on women’ leadership, the building of peace and the increased involvement of women within key processes linked to national development. Regional and international engagements involving members of the Chapter’s Senior Steering and National Youth Caucus Steering committees saw the Network tapping into broader processes aimed at advancing frameworks on women’s rights such as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for action. Commemorative events, such as those carried out for the 20th Anniversary of the UN Resolution on Women Peace and Security, UNSCR1325, also had some notable outcomes for the Chapter. At the end of 2020, the Chapter participated in a continental intergenerational retreat, as one of five countries selected to share national experiences.
It is vital that the activities, progress, and achievements of the AWLN Zimbabwe Chapter are tracked, monitored as well as evaluated for the Network to effectively plan and carry out its mandate going forward. To this end the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) seeks to engage a consultant with expertise in monitoring and evaluation and good knowledge of gender equality and women’s empowerment issues, to support the Country Office to conduct a Mid Term - Project Assessment of the implementation of the African Women Leaders Network Initiative from 2020 – 2021 through tracking of results and indicators and to produce a quality report to be shared with stakeholders.
