The UN Women’s regional programme “Men and Women for Gender equality” (MWGE), funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), aims to address gender inequality through a unique bottom-up approach. Building upon the results of Phase I (2015-2018), Phase II of the programme (2019-2022) provides increased opportunities for learning and exchange of experiences across and beyond the six countries of implementation: Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The programme works through a multi-dimensional strategy aiming to: i) support communities to have more gender equitable attitudes and behaviors, ii) integrate/promote gender-responsive practices in key regional and national institutions and regional networks, and iii) to promote gender equality through advocating for the draft, revision and/or approval of laws, policies and strategies in the countries of implementation.
UN Women recognizes the identification, documentation, and validation of good practices and lessons learned as a necessary part of organizational learning in pursuit of programme excellence. Capturing, sharing and utilizing lessons learned is crucial for continuous improvement and reaching the ones furthest behind. During Phase I, the programme has extensively supported an increased collaboration between the implementation countries through sharing of national experiences and networking on innovative approaches for the engagement of men and boys in gender equality, as well as through South- South exchange visits to Indonesia and South Africa and a final learning meeting marking the end of Phase I.
While Phase II of the programme focuses on scaling up and institutionalizing the work realized the previous years, it also acknowledges the need to improve the process of knowledge cross-fertilization, sharing experiences, and learning amongst the various community-based organizations (CBOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) partnering with the programme.
To achieve this, the MWGE programme will convene a regional knowledge exchange workshop among CSOs/CBOs engaged by UN Women during Phase II to share their experiences, learnings and innovative ideas coming from the delivery of the community-based interventions implemented in the four countries: Egypt, Palestine, Morocco and Lebanon. This workshop will also help to analyze the different strategies, methodologies and partnerships applied in these interventions to achieve results. All this will pave the way for the upcoming establishment of a Regional Community of Practice for behavioral and social norms change for gender equality in the MENA region.
The consultant will be supervised by the Regional Manager of the “Men and Women for Gender Equality” programme.
Objective of the service
UN Women will organize a Regional Knowledge Exchange Workshop on community-based interventions of the “Men and Women for Gender Equality” (MWGE) regional programme – Phase II. The workshop will consist of 6 sessions scheduled on 6 different days from 24th May to 1st June 2021. A consultant is needed for drafting an outcome report of the workshop, highlighting the event’s results and synthesis of recommendations for future programming. Although interpreters for English, Arabic and French will be recruited by UN Women for the workshop separately, the report writer is requested to be fluent in both English and Arabic in order to comprehend inputs provided during the meeting and take substantive notes. The recording of the workshop’s session will be also available for the report writer in case some cross-reference check is needed.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
