UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UN Women, 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.
UN Women's mandate (GA resolution 64/289) is to lead, coordinate and promote accountability of the UN system to deliver on gender equality and the empowerment of women with the primary objective of enhancing country-level coherence, ensuring coordinated interventions, and securing positive impacts on the lives of women and girls, including those living in rural areas.
The UN Women Egypt Country Office (CO) Strategic Note covering the period 2018-2022 is the main planning tool for UN Women’s support to the normative, coordination, and operational work in Egypt. The Strategic Note focuses on the most vulnerable women and areas where the most impact can be achieved, according to Egypt’s Sustainable Development Strategy. It contributes to the achievement of three mutually reinforcing SN impact areas, namely an enhanced legislative and institutional environment, income security, decent work, and economic autonomy, and the achievement of a life free from all forms of violence for Egyptian women;
UN Women’s engagement in Egypt is premised on the principle that only through the advancement of gender equality and the empowerment of women can Egypt’s full and vibrant growth and vision be realized. In close partnership with the Government of Egypt, and working with other national stakeholders such as academia, civil society, and the private sector, UN Women Egypt Country office programmes support national priorities in the areas of: (1) Women’s leadership and participation; (2) Advancing women’s financial inclusion and economic empowerment; (3) ending violence against women; and (4) increasing coordination among the UN and development partners in their commitments towards gender equality. Through its work, UN Women partners with the Government of Egypt to both implement and shape the global intergovernmental norms and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment. Moreover, UN Women seeks to ensure that through its programmes women – including the most vulnerable – are supported to realize their full potential.
The UN Women Independent Evaluation Service (IES) evaluates the work of UN women to enhance organizational accountability, provide evidence-based information for decision-making, and contribute to learning on gender equality and the empowerment of women. It is currently undertaking a Country Portfolio Evaluation (CPE) of the UN Women Egypt Country Office Strategic Note for 2018-2022.
The CPE is a systematic assessment of the contributions made by UN Women to development results with respect to gender equality at the country level. This CPE will use the Strategic Note as the main point of reference and is primarily intended to be a formative (forward-looking) evaluation to support the Country Office and national stakeholders’ strategic learning and decision-making for the next Strategic Note (2022-2025). The evaluation is expected to have a secondary summative (backward-looking) perspective, to support enhanced accountability for development effectiveness and learning from experience.
The CPE will be gender-responsive and utilization-focused and will follow the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Norms for Evaluation in the UN System, Standards for Evaluation in the UN System, and Ethical Guidelines. For detailed Terms of Reference please read Annex 1 (Please check the below link).
