National Consultant - Monitoring of the Media on Gender Matters “GENDERED VOICES NEWSLETTER”
Gender Equality, Women’s Empowerment and Information Technology
UNDP in Mauritius is guided by the Country Programme Document (CPD) for 2017-2023 and the Strategic Partnership Framework 2019-2023 which are in line with the Government Programme 2015- 2019, the Blueprint for Mauritius’ Vision 2030, the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda. The Country Programme’s thrust is to bring significant added value in high-level policy support with a focus on strengthening the capacities of national actors, systems, and institutions through targeted policy interventions.
Objective of the Assignment
The main objective of the assignment is to translate gendered programme results into powerful compelling human stories related to the CPD, including but not limited to women’s empowerment and green/sustainable information technologies.
It is viewed that an effective media monitoring analysis and highlighting gendered voices will equip the CO with relevant information in real time and provide unique insights on people’s lives for long- term planning. This initiative will also put a human face to programmes. In the same vein, the international literature on the women’s movement stipulates that ‘bringing to voice’ and sharing of women's experiences is key to developing ‘sisterhood’ and to bringing to light women's collective resistance and understand the basis of common situations of women1. Concurrently, a media monitoring of gender issues will ensure that policy issues remain on the agenda and provide insights on how the media reports on matters that are important to women.
