Overview :

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of all forms 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 addition, in 2018 the Government set up a new mechanism at the highest political level to resolve conflicts between concessionaries and communities and to oversee the implementation of the agreements. This mechanism is the Special Presidential Review Committee (SPRC) and it is composed of the OLA, the Ministry of Justice and Liberian Land Authority (LLA).

In light of the above, UN Women Liberia seeks to hire an International Consultant (IC) to support the OLA to mainstream gender into the concession awarding process and the SPRC dispute resolution process and support the implementation of the joint project “Sustaining Peace and Reconciliation through Strengthening Land Governance and Dispute Resolution Mechanisms” . The IC is further expected to provide advice on concession prospective contacts with a view to improve their gender responsiveness as well as support the resolution of conflicts.
