|Overview : |
Addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment is a key aspect of UNDP’s approach to achieving its core strategic vision. Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment are seen as goals in their own right and are also central to the achievement of UNDP’s development mandate. UNDP is guided in its work by its Gender Equality Strategy (2018-2021) which details how UNDP works towards gender equality in each of the goals set out in the UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021.
In this regard, building on its previous support to better integrate gender equality and women’s empowerment into national climate targets, the NDC Support Programme is currently assisting 17 countries in mainstreaming gender equality into the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) planning and implementation process. UNDP is applying a 3 pronged approach, which involves supporting countries to ensure gender equality/women’s empowerment and climate change are factored in as a combination within the governance, planning and policy processes of NDCs since these areas are mutually reinforcing. For instance, UNDP is supporting countries in
1) Strengthening coordination mechanisms between and among gender, climate/environment and line ministries, developing institutional capacities at the horizontal and vertical levels on climate change and gender, and engaging non-state actors;
2) integrating gender within planning for implementation (long-term strategies, NDC implementation and investment plans);
3) climate change policies (transparency frameworks, mitigation actions, National Adaptation Plans, etc.)
UNDP would like to engage a consultant to support the Gender-Responsive Component of the NDC Support Programme, and, through this, the Climate Promise, as described within this TOR.
