JP Zambia Gender Based Violence Reports
JP Zambia Gender Based Violence Key Documents
The International Labour Organization (ILO), International Organization for Migration (IOM), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO) have established a Joint Programme entitled "GRZ-UN Joint Programme on Gender Based Violence” using a pass-through and parallel funding modality. The Joint Programme aims to support the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) to implement the provisions of the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), with particular focus on the recommendations on violence against women that are contained in the July 2011 CEDAW concluding observations and the recommendations of the Special Rapportuer on Violence Against Women, its causes and consequences, and to support institutional transformation to facilitate the implementation of the Anti- Gender Based Violence Act 2011 of Zambia.
The Joint Programme is guided by Zambia’s Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) 2011-2015, which recognizes gender as a cross-cutting issue, and in this regard outlines three objectives for the gender sector, namely: (i) to develop gender-responsive policies and legal framework; (ii) to enhance capacity of women to participate in development: and (iii) to strengthen institutional capacities for effective gender mainstreaming. The Ministry of Gender and Child Development will have the overall responsibility for coordinating the implementation of the Joint Programme outcomes, supported by the lead UN Agency for each outcome. The identified line ministries will lead the implementation of the outcomes, although they may delegate the responsibility of implementing some of the activities to other line ministries or civil society organizations, again with support from relevant UN Agencies.
The GRZ-UN Joint Programme on GBV is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.
The goal of the Joint GRZ- UN Programme Gender based Violence is to contribute to the reduction of Gender Based Violence in Zambia.
The Primary objective is to establish an integrated and multi-sectoral mechanism for the implementation of the Anti-GBV Activities. The Joint Programme aims to: increase the health sector’s involvement in addressing GBV in Zambia; establish appropriate justice/legal systems to effectively implement the Anti GBV Activities; scale up social protection systems for prevention and management of GBV, including integrated approaches to economic empowerment of GBV survivors; and establish an effective coordination mechanism for an integrated GBV response in Zambia.
The Joint GRZ-UN Programme outcomes are as follows:
Outcome 1: GBV survivors have increased access to timely and appropriate health services;
Outcome 2: GBV survivors have increased access to an efficient justice delivery system;
Outcome 3: GBV survivors have increased access to protection and support services; and
Outcome 4: Ministry of Gender and Child Development has coordinated an effective, evidence-based and multi-sectoral response to GBV in Zambia.
The commitment of the ILO, IOM, UNDP, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, WHO to the Joint GRZ-UN Programme on GBV is reflected in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). More specifically Outcome 5.2: Reduced legal and cultural barriers to gender equality by 2015. The GRZ-UN Joint Programme on GBV is the main vehicle for achieving this outcome.
The overall responsibility for managing and coordinating the JP-GBV rests with the Permanent Secretary of the Gender and Child Development Division (GCDD). A Programme Steering Committee will provide supervisory and technical guidance for effective implementation of the Joint Programme. It will be chaired by the GCDD Permanent Secretary and have representation of Permanent Secretaries from all implementing line ministries, the UN Resident Coordinator and an NGO representative.
A Programme Implementation Committee (PIC) will be established and chaired by the Director of the Social, Legal and Governance Section in GCDD with representation from all implementing agencies and partners to facilitate and strengthen coordination, harmonise approaches and ensure quality assurance. The Director of the Social, Legal and Governance Section in GCDD will be responsible for preparing for Steering Committee meetings and assume the role of Secretariat.
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA). The AA is responsible for, receiving, administering and managing contributions from donors; disburse funds to Implementing Partners, based on PMC approved work plans, consolidating annual and final financial reports; transmit annual/final Consolidated Reports to donors through the PSC.
The UNDAF Outcome Group on Gender discusses and approves work plans and budgets as well as any substantive or financial issues pertaining to implementation of the GRZ-UN Joint Programmet on GBV in Zambia. The members assume responsibility for performing joint monitoring of GRZ-UN Joint Programme on GBV activities. Decisions are made by consensus. Members provide regular feedback on its implementation and propose any necessary corrective actions to resolve problems, ensure accountability, and make recommendations.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
