Programme Analyst, Cairo, Egypt Re-Advertisement: Programme Analyst Advertised on behalf of : Location : Cairo, EGYPT Application Deadline : 09-Jul-20 (Midnight New York, USA) Additional Category : Gender Equality Type of Contract : Service Contract Post Level : SB-4 Languages Required : Arabic English Starting Date : (date when the selected candidate is expected to start) 01-Sep-2020 Duration of Initial Contract : oneyear Expected Duration of Assignment : one year Background 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. In line with UN Women's Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the UN Women Egypt office is contributing to three interdependent and interconnected outcomes: Women lead, participate in and benefit equally from governance systems Women have income security, decent work, and economic autonomy All women and girls live a life free from all forms of violence Women's economic empowerment is central to realizing women's rights and gender equality. Women's economic empowerment includes women's ability to participate equally in existing markets; their access to and control over productive resources, access to decent work, control over their own time, lives and bodies; and increased voice, agency and meaningful participation in economic decision-making at all levels from the household to international institutions. Empowering women in the economy and closing gender gaps in the world of work is key to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 5, to achieve gender equality, and Goal 8, to promote full and productive employment and decent work for all; also Goal 1 on ending poverty, Goal 2 on food security, Goal 3 on ensuring health and Goal 10 on reducing inequalities. Under the framework of the United Nations Partnership Development Framework (UNPDF) Output 2: Women Economic Empowerment1 and in alignment with the goal and objectives of the Economic Empowerment pillar of the National Strategy for Women's Empowerment (NSWE), UN Women Egypt has supported the economic empowerment of women through the implementation of projects such as the One-Village-One-Product (2014-2016), Village Savings and Loans Associations (2014-2017), and the creation of a more inclusive and gender-sensitive environment along the agricultural value chains of select agribusiness firms (2017-2018). The projects have had positive outcomes for women participants, the majority of whom are poor and marginalized, as demonstrated in their increased income through savings, access to loans, and investments, in addition to greater self-confidence and community recognition. A critical factor across all UN Women interventions has been the formation of women's networks that have enhanced participants' social skills and create opportunities for networking and exchange of knowledge, thus contributing to better and more effective cooperation among them. These networks have also provided a voice to women's need for formal financial services (as in the case of the VSLAs) and improved working conditions (as in the case of the agribusiness firms). Building on the successful results achieved through the above-mentioned projects, UN Women in Egypt is implementing a 5-year program (2019-2024) funded by Global Affairs Canada that aims to support women's empowerment for sustainable economic growth in Egypt. The program will be implemented by a consortium made up of UN Women and UNIDO, with UN Women as the lead agency. The program will also be implemented in partnership with the National Council for Women (NCW) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MOTI). The project intermediate outcomes are contributing to: - Increased productivity and job opportunities generated by women entrepreneurs; Increased employment of women by businesses; and Reduced gender-specific barriers to women's entrepreneurship and to women entering into and remaining in the workforce.
