UNDP Tanzania country office, under the Inclusive Growth Pillar is in the process of developing Project Documents namely 1)“Strengthening Coordination and Gender Mainstreaming” of the Tanzania Productive Social Safety Nets (PSSN) programme to promote well-coordinated and gender-responsive social protection in Tanzania and 2) “Coherent SDGs Implementation for sustainable environment and natural resources management & multi-dimensional poverty reduction” implemented under the global Poverty Environment Initiative (PEI) Programme.
Recognizing that social protection and sustainable natural resources management can be effective instruments in reducing poverty and inequality, the Government of Tanzania, with support from UNDP, integrated sustainable natural resources management and social protection issues as well as SDGs aspirations into the Second Five Year Development Plan (FYDP II) 2016/17-2020/21. In addition, Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF) was initiated in 2000 by the Government of Tanzania as one of its initiatives on poverty reduction anchored to the Poverty Reduction Strategies.
PSSN programme as well as the PEI Programme have integrated gender and climate change concerns to address issues of multidimensional poverty and exclusion. For example, under the PSSN programme, women are identified as recipients of the cash transfer on behalf of the household, and are offered flexible working hours for the public works programme while under the PEI programme, women are identified as key implementers and beneficiaries of nature-based enterprise. However, there is a need to ensure that gender concerns are further integrated into all UNDP programmes and projects with explicit deliverables. UNDP is currently conducting a study to gain more knowledge about the impact of the PSSN on gender roles and dynamics in the communities and within families as well as the gender gaps in agriculture analysis. This is specifically to ensure that women play a key leading role in agriculture and the related agri-business; a sector that employs majority of the population in Tanzania and key in facilitating Local Economic Development (LED) approach of the FYDP II.
Based on the results of the gender analysis and institutional assessment as well as findings from stakeholder consultations and desk review of relevant documents, UNDP is developing two key projects highlighted in para 1 above that will strengthen coordination and mainstream gender in the PSSN programme to promote a well-coordinated and gender-responsive social protection in Tanzania. In addition, ensuring coherent and coordinated SDGs implementation through poverty-environment-gender and climate change (p-e-g-c) nexus to address the multi-dimensional poverty and inequality. The development of the new PEI programme is being informed by lessons of the current ending phase.
In order to ensure adequate integration of the gender consideration, UNDP seeks to engage the services of an international consultant with in-depth practical knowledge and skills in gender integration and mainstreaming into UNDP programmes and programming. The consultant will support UNDP to develop and finalize the two project documents as well as ensure gender synthesis and considerations within the final project evaluation of the current PEI programme with a view to learn lessons to inform the new follow-on PEI phase. With the current PEI project coming to an end in June 2018, and lessons and best practices required to inform the new PEI programme phase, the consultant will document and share lessons learned and best practices, and identify potential new partnerships and funding opportunities for the coming phase. The consultant will also produce, design and package knowledge products for dissemination and advocacy at the national and sub-national levels.
The consultant will be engaged to deliver specific milestones and deliverable based on UNDP quality standards and requirements.
