selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and
background checks.

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.

In Tanzania, UN Women contributes
to the United Nations Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP II) 2016-2022,
within the context of UN Delivering as One. The UNDAP supports the
achievement of the international development goals, including the
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), national development priorities
including the FYDP III (under development), and the localization of
global norms and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment
(GEWE). UN Women is mandated to lead, coordinate, and promote the
accountability of the UN system in its work on GEWE. Under this mandate
and in line with the 2020 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review
(QCPR), UN Women provides technical and coordination support across the
UN system in Tanzania to deliver results for diverse groups of women and

Towards this end, UN Women serves as the secretariat
for the newly established UN Gender Coordination Mechanism (UNGCM),
supporting the Resident Coordinator as the groups’ chair to strengthen
the UN’s contribution to advancing GEWE. In this capacity, UN Women also
provides substantive support for the implementation of the UN
System-Wide Action Plan (UNCT-SWAP) Gender Equality Scorecard. The UN
System in Tanzania has developed a Common Country Analysis (CCA) and is
in the process of developing a UN Sustainable Development Cooperation
Framework (UNSDCF). In the context of UN reform, the UNSDCF is the key
planning and operational framework, outlining the UN’s support to Agenda
2030 and the SDGs. The UNGCM has a key role to play in ensuring that
GEWE is strategically positioned across the CCA and UNSDCF, in line with
the global norms set out in the UNCT-SWAP Scorecard, and to ensure the
participation of diverse groups of women and girls. The UN Gender
Coordination Mechanisms (UNGCM) also provides an important opportunity
for the UN to coordinate its support to government and CSO partners
working to advance the rights of women and girls, including the
implementation of the FYDP III, the National Gender Policy and the
implementation of the normative framework.

Towards greater
normative coherence, UN Women leads the UNDAP Outcome Group on Women’s
Leadership and Political Participation (OG WLPP). Outcome Groups are
interagency groups responsible for coordinating UNDAP delivery on joint
results; overseeing implementation, management, monitoring, evaluation,
and reporting. This focus on strengthening women’s leadership and
political participation in governance at national and local levels
remains a key priority for the new UNSDCF, featuring as a critical issue
under the proposed “Enabling Environment” Outcome. The full development
of this Outcome is currently ongoing, under the co-leadership of UN
Women and UNDP. UN Women is also playing a key coordination role to
support gender mainstreaming in the other three proposed Outcomes of the

The UNCT in Tanzania has increasingly focused on
addressing the intersections between gender and other key issues within
the LNOB agenda, such as disability inclusion, including through
strengthening coordination across these critical issues. As a co-lead
in recent joint LNOB and disability inclusion initiatives, UN Women has a
continuing role to play in strengthening coordinated intersectional
approaches to advance GEWE, disability and other LNOB issues.

Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Network (PSEA Network). The network

UNICEF and the Resident Coordinator’s Office, UN Women convenes the UNCT
to accelerate progress towards meeting the PSEA minimum operating
standards (PSEA MOS).
