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 Jordan’s Strategic Note (SN) 2018-22 was approved by the Deputy Executive Director of UN Women in December 2017. The Jordan SN is a forward-looking programmatic document that translates the UN-Women Strategic Plan 2018-2022 to the country level and adapts it to the country context and priorities. The SN outlines the overall strategy and plan of action for the UN-Women Jordan Country Office (JCO) for the years 2018-22 and includes a Development Results Framework (DRF) and an Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Framework (OEEF) with expected results and targets/indicators/baselines. However, as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, many of the JCO operations have been affected since March 2020. Subsequently, UN Women JCO has both introduced new programmatic interventions as well as leveraged the existing activities across its thematic areas of policy reform; women’s economic empowerment; women, peace and security; and humanitarian assistance. This has been critical to ensuring that programming and interventions are responding to this crisis and its impact on Jordan in the short, medium and longer terms.
Under UN Women’s policies and procedures in relation to programme management, a mid-term review (MTR) is mandatory for programmes of at least three years’ duration. In the case of UN-Women Jordan, this requires the office to hold a MTR of its programme during 2021. It is important that the MTR commence by early May and be completed by July 2021 to provide inputs for the annual planning process for 2021. The MTR will provide an understanding of what UN Women is doing, its implicit theory of change and how the organization’s strategy should be adapted in 2021 and beyond in the unprecedented context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The MTR should reflect the adjustments to JCO’s strategic approach since March 2020 while also taking into consideration the anticipated donor funding limitations that is likely to affect country level due to COVID-19.
Under the direct supervision of Representative of the JCO, the consultant will be responsible for supporting the preparation of and leading the mid-term review meeting, and in consultation with key staff, will produce 7 discussion papers that will guide and inform the discussions at the stakeholder
consultations. The consultant will provide a MTR report including a set of recommendations for the JCO to incorporate in the Theory of Change. In addition, as UN Women JCO has been recognized for several strategic best practices amongst UN Women Country Offices, the consultant will deliver an advocacy brief which will map and identify the best practices and also inform the MTR.
Note that the MTR is NOT meant to be an impact evaluation; it will be a qualitative reflection of UN Women’s work and progress in key areas rather than an in-depth analysis. It will be contextualized within the UN Country Team’s work in Jordan that in turn aligns with the national government’s vision and plans
Objective of the Assignment:
The purposes of the MTR exercise per corporate guidance are:
These will be achieved through the following objectives:
1. An analysis of the agency’s positioning, including an assessment of the relevance of its theory of change in the contemporary context and the appropriateness of the balance among the agency’s programmatic, normative, advocacy and coordination roles
2. A basic assessment of the agency’s programmatic performance that captures the agency’s knowledge of its overall performance, its internal and external knowledge management and its ability to capture and leverage knowledge.
3. An assessment of the office’s partnerships, including its approach to cultivating and maintaining partnerships, the appropriateness of its partnerships and the effectiveness of partnerships in delivering results/impact.
4. An assessment of the office’s response to new or emerging normative frameworks and its incorporation of normative issues and commitments into the rest of its work.
5. An assessment of the office’s coordination role, both in terms of improving the UNCT’s overall performance on gender equality and its efficacy in national coordination structures.
6. An assessment of the office’s operations; specifically, quality assurance and oversight functions and review of HR capacities in order to maximize programme effective and efficiency.
7. An assessment of the office’s communication and outreach to determine the extent to which external stakeholders are clear about UN Women’s mandate and to which the office serves as a GEWE knowledge hub.
