The centeral Statistical Agency of Ethiopia (CSA) is an organization mandated to produce and disseminate socio-economic and demographic data and also to support and coordinate the national statistical system of the country to produce quality data. The agency is playing a significant role in evidence-based planning and decision making in the country by producing difference data from surveys and censuses over the years. The Agency has now adopted the third National Strategy for Development of Statistics (NSDS III) which will guide the coming five years of the development of statistics in the country and its implementation will support the monitoring of the implementation of the Ten Years Development Plan 2021-2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
As the mandated institution for the production and dissemination of official statistics, CSA aspires to provide users with quality statistical information in various spheres including gender statistics. However, the capacity of CSA in the production of gender statistics for the monitoring of the national, regional and global plans and commitments needs to be enhanced. In order to improve the production of gender statistics, supporting the gender mainstreaming directorate of CSA and the organization at large is found to be very important. Once the data gap is identified and data need determined, strengthened coordination, partnership and concrete collaboration with Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), UN agencies, CSOs, academia, professional associations and researchers is further required for production of quality statistical data that can reflect the realities of Ethiopian men and women. Development of gender statistics is crucial for gender equality and women’s empowerment as a pillar for evidence-based decision making and programming.
Currently, CSA has 25 branch offices and 20 directorates at the Federal, where one of the directorates is the Gender Mainstreaming Directorate. The directorate is under-staffed as it stands now. The directorate has been working with different task forces and ad hoc committees drawn from the core directorates of the CSA as a proxy remedy for shortage of staff required. The support from the committees can still continue as it facilitates coordination and allow engagement of multidisciplinary team. However, cognizant of the need for additional staff to follow up the implementation, monitoring and reporting on planned activities, UN Women is hiring a national consultant that will support the unit and CSA.
This TOR is, therefore, developed to guide the recruitment of a national consultant with relevant qualification and practical experiences in mainstreaming gender issues and skill in data production and analyses from a gender perspective to guide the work of CSA on gender statistics .
