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. UN Women provides support to Member States’ efforts and priorities in meeting their gender equality goals and for building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women operationalizes this through Flagship Programming Initiatives (FPIs) developed to achieve transformative results for gender equality and women empowerment. The FPIs respond to the expanded agenda for Beijing+20 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The main objective of UN Women’s support to Government under Peace and Security is to facilitate Women’s contribution to sustainable peace and see to it that Women contribute to and benefit from prevention of conflict and disaster.
The UN Security Council Resolution 1325, unanimously adopted in October 2000, stressed the importance of equal participation and full involvement of women in all efforts of maintaining and promoting peace and security. The Government of Uganda has been implementing the National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 since 2008. The first three year NAP ended in 2010 and the second NAP 2011 -2015 expired in December 2015. The NAP provides a framework for the implementation of UNSCR 1325, it outlines the roles and responsibilities of government, civil society and development partners, and provides indicators for measuring progress via the UNSCR 1325 Civil Society Taskforce. The Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MoGLSD) as the National Gender Machinery led the development and implementation of the past NAPs and is also leading the development of the 3rd NAP 1325, with technical and financial support from UN Women Uganda.
Under the overall guidance and leadership of the Country Representative, and under the direct supervision of the Programme Specialist, Women Peace and Security (WPS), the Women, Peace and Security Programme Analyst contributes to the effective management of UN Women Uganda programmes by providing substantive inputs to programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation. S/he guides and facilitates the delivery of UN Women programmes by monitoring results achieved during implementation and ensuring appropriate application of systems and procedures and develops enhancements if necessary. She/he works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women RO and HQ staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
