UN system comparative advantage

The UN system is able to provide worldwide expertise and knowledge management networks to its counterparts in terms of information sharing, gender technical training, guidance and capacity building to boost electoral reforms for equal representation to put women at par with men in decision-making at the national and local level governments. Through its specialized agencies, the UN is able to offer expertise in institutional capacity building at all levels of decision making, including through workshops, leadership training, advocacy techniques and resource mobilization.

Proposed UN system results

The UN (UNDP, UNFPA and UNIFEM) will support the government and civil society organizations in reviewing the above situation and its causes in formulating proposals to address the issues raised. It will support the updating of the current (1990) Women’s Policy and Action Plan to be reflected in the MTDS and its successor, as well as sectoral plans, and promote the development of disaggregated databases for all sectors. The UN will also contribute to developing the capacity of the DCD, the NCW, and women’s NGOs, in their advocacy (see 3.4.1 above), in revising and enforcing legislation, in reporting on CEDAW implementation and in reporting on the implementation of other conventions and conference action plans. More specifically, UNFPA will support the Department of Community Development to develop a National Gender Policy. UNIFEM will provide follow-up support to the regional Women in Politics (WIP) project so as to strengthen the basis for increased women’s participation in political processes, linking the project to UNDP Support to Parliament (see 3.1.1 above). The UN system, particularly UNDP and UNESCO, will also provide women vocational training opportunities and entrepreneurial training courses, in conjunction with interested donors and NGOs.

Partnership development

The UN system will work with the DEC, NP, DPLGA, DNPM, DJAG, NCW, Women in National Government Strategy, Women in Politics, Electoral Commission, Board of the Political Parties and the political parties. It will also work with interested donor partners, particularly AusAID and NZAID.
