Efforts to advance Gender Equality in Cambodia are important part of the UNDP Country Programme with the explicit outcome: “By 2015, gender disparities in participation and economic growth reduced”. In this context, the Partnership for Gender Equity III (PGEIII) is the third phase of UNDP project providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA) in its endeavour to promote greater gender equality in Cambodia. 2012 and 2013 mark substantial support, under a SIDA-UNDP partnership to be provided by PGE III to the MoWA and to the Gender Mainstreaming Action Groups (GMAGs) established in line ministries in order to advance on a number of priorities, in particular:
- To accelerate the achievement of CMDG3, notably with regard to its targets on economic opportunities for women;
- To develop and gradually implement a comprehensive capacity development (CD) strategy for MoWA and for selected GMAGs in support of a better aid effectiveness through Programme Based Approach (PBA) to be launched in 2012 around the theme: “Women’s economic empowerment”;
- To develop the concept for the fourth strategic plan of Cambodia on Gender equality (Neary Rattanak IV) and the Cambodia Gender Assessment III (CGAIII).
The overall objective of the assignment is to advance the implementation of the capacity development strategy by MoWA and by up to five GMAGs in line ministries in support of PBA, MAF, NRIV and CGAIII as per above mentioned priorities for 2012 and 2013.
S/he will coordinate the inputs to develop the detailed, practical next steps in MoWA’s capacity development exercise including an M&E framework for its gradual implementation. S/he will take into account the capacity assessment of MoWA (2010) and the CD matrix (2012), the Mid Term Review (2012) of NRIII as well as the road map and background documents for the development of the PBA (2012).
Based on above mentioned background materials and an inception meeting with senior staff from MoWA, PGE and UNDP country office, the consultant will finalize and move the capacity development strategy of MoWA and up to five GMAGs towards demonstrable results, in particular with regard to successfully coordinating the processes of the PBA and the MAF on the priority: Women’s Economic Empowerment.
