Introduction :
The UN Secretary General António Guterres has placed the achievement of gender parity in the UN System as an urgent priority, both in terms of human rights and also as it is essential to the United Nations’ efficiency, impact, and credibility. To operationalize system-wide efforts to advance this priority, the Secretary-General launched the UN Strategy on Gender Parity, which was followed by a series of guidelines on creating a positive enabling environment to foster gender parity. Aligned with the global strategy, the UN System in Uganda developed a country-specific gender parity strategy and action plan.  Among the priorities identified in this action plan are addressing unconscious bias that may be impacting on the recruitment and advancement of women in the UN system and addressing sexual harassment and the culture of silence that enables this abuse to continue.

In addition, the UN has a zero-tolerance policy for sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) perpetrated by staff and personnel of the UN and its implementing partners, contractors, and vendors against beneficiaries of assistance, affected persons, and other vulnerable groups, and is committed to actively preventing and responding to SEA. However, reporting and responding to SEA is negatively impacted by a culture of silence, with some evidence that only about a quarter of UN personnel who are aware of SEA instances have reported it. 

It is against this background that UNDP, on behalf of the Resident Coordinator’s Office in Uganda, is contracting an external partner to create and conduct training for UN human resources personnel and gender, disability inclusion, and SEA focal points.
