Antecedentes

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 Sudan’s Strategic Note (SN) 2018-2021, aims "to consolidate efforts that contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment in Sudan". Key strategies for the implementation of the country programme include capacity building, advocacy, gender mainstreaming, evidence, information and data collection and the use of media to highlight and inform the general population of Sudan. The SN outlines the overall strategy and plan of action for the UN Women Sudan Country Office (CO) for the years 2018-2021 and includes an Integrated Results and Resources (IRRF) which combines the DRF and OEEF, with expected results and targets/ indicators/ baselines.

2018 Annual Work Plan (AWP) of UN Women Sudan Country Office (Co) focuses on two mutually reinforcing priorities on enhancing women’s participation in climate resilient agriculture in rural, conflict, post-conflict and humanitarian contexts and strengthening their effective participation in Peace, Security and Humanitarian processes as priority areas that UN Women will work on to contribute towards achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment in Sudan.

The AWP builds on current partnership with AFDB, USAID, UNDP, UNEP, SIDA, Italian Cooperation development agency etc. Partnership with government is extended beyond the MoSSD/DGFWA to other ministries; partnerships with private sector, academia, CSOs, NGOs, CBOs, Media and women’s movements is better captured. Field interventions for pilots on WEE and WPS expanded to the Red Sea, Khartoum, Kordofan and Blue Nile States, based on agreements with donors. The AWP is more focused on Global SP, FPIs and JPs.   The OEEF is more substantive, leveraging coordination and partnerships for transformative results through joint advocacy and policy support. The Leave No One Behind Principle cuts across all areas of interventions.

Reporting to the Country Representative, the Programme Specialist exercises overall responsibility for planning, implementing, and managing UN Women interventions under his/her portfolio.  She/he works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
