|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|

|Starting Date :|

To support the Government of Armenia in advancing its Human Rights national agenda and meeting the commitments vis-à-vis European and international Human Rights instruments, UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA with funding from the European Union implement a Project focusing on a number of priority areas under the framework of the National Strategy on Protection of Human Rights and the Action Plan, Human Rights Budget Support of the EU as well as the recommendations issued by International and Regional HR Mechanisms (including UPR, UN ICCPR, UN CEDAW, UN CRPD, UN CRC, UN CAT and SPT).
The Government of Armenia has reconfirmed its commitment to promote and protect democratic values and make human rights part of its national agenda by adopting the National Human Rights Strategy in 2012 and the HR Action Plan for 2014-16, with the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) responsible for the overall coordination and implementation process. In the course of implementation of the 2014-16 HR Action Plan, the MoJ identified the need for comprehensive coordination, monitoring and evaluation system as well as for enhanced reporting capacity of the relevant stakeholders.
Next, the Government developed a new HR Action Plan for 2017-19, and formed a Coordination Council under the MoJ responsible for its implementation. The activities under 2017-19 HR Action Plan include indicators and time-lines, however, to allow the MoJ to measure and to report on the progress of implementation in a systematic way, the HR Action Plan still needs to envisage mechanisms for monitoring the progress and evaluation of the results based on best international practice. The M&E mechanisms should (i) serve the purpose of systematic gathering and analysis of data, (ii) offer feedback tools, (iii) be used for coordination and reporting purposes and (iv) serve as a basis for future planning. Last but not least, the monitoring process should encourage broader civil society participation for public acceptance of the results.
To address these needs, the Project will support the MoJ to develop and apply effective monitoring and evaluation mechanisms and to conduct annual revision of targets and performance indicators based on the best international practices. The Project will also strengthen the capacity of the Coordination Council, including reporting and coordination with the responsible agencies.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the overall coordination of the UNDP Democratic Governance Portfolio and direct supervision of the HR Project Coordinator, the National Expert will work together with the International Expert on Human Rights Monitoring and Evaluation to support the MoJ in (i) assessing the results framework of the HRAP 2017-19 with consideration of achievements and lessons learned of 2014-16 HRAP (ii) developing monitoring and evaluation tools for HRAP implementation and preparing corresponding reports, (iii) training of the representatives of the Coordination Council and respective state agencies on the results-based framework for effective systematic assessment and feedback.
