Background

The UN Women (UNW), 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. Placing women's rights at the centre of all its efforts, the UNW will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

The scope of work of the UNW Representative requires experience and in-depth understanding of gender equality and women's empowerment issues, as well as management and pogramming expertise, to translate UNW's strategic plans into effective development initiatives and results.  It also requires developing mutually reinforcing partnerships with relevant Government counterparts, UN organizations, CSOs, and with bilateral and non-traditional donors in order to promote inter-agency partnerships, support for UN reform, and mobilization of visibility and resources to advance gender equality and women's empowerment.

UNW started programming in Uganda in 2006 in the area of peace building and supported various interventions to ensure women's visibility and participation in the Juba peace process and later on, from 2008 to 2011, UNW embarked on consolidating its peace building programme by expanding to development programmes. This included a component on access to justice, especially for war related issues such as violence against women, land issues and other gender related challenges. UNW is also active partner in UNCT in charge of coordination of the UN Joint Programme on Gender and is also participating Agency in the joint programmes on GBV and Population, coordinated by UNFPA. The UNW country programme is aligned to the National Development Plan that has as its vision "A Transformed Ugandan Society from a Peasant to a Modern and Prosperous Country within 30 Years" and is aligned to UNDAF. The programme anchors some of the outcome areas in the Joint Programming on Gender.

The development objective of the UNW country programme in Uganda is: Capabilities for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in Uganda Strengthened, and the programme has three result areas that are inter-linked and reinforce each other: (i) Increased economic empowerment of women, especially of those who are most excluded; (ii) Prevent violence against women and girls and expand access to victim/survivor services, and (iii) National planning and budgeting processes promote stronger institutional accountability to Gender Equality commitments.
