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.

UN Women’s thematic engagement in Somalia is based on the global flagship on ‘Women’s Engagement in Peace, Security and Recovery’, as continuing fragility provides the main context of all engagements. Insecurity and fragility are further the main obstacles for women to seek equality and to prosper. UN Women’s programming and technical guidance aims to support women to become actors in the provision of security and resources for peace. Programme interventions are conducted through programmes on Women, Peace and Security, Rule of Law and Women’s Political Leadership and Empowerment. In addition, UN Women works on gender mainstreaming across all UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes and UNSOM through a Joint Programme on Enablers. Engagement with the Federal Government in Somalia and Federal Member States as well as key NGO and civil society actors continues.

Reporting to Programme Manager, Women Peace and Security, the Programme Analyst provides programme support to the effective management of the UN Women component in the Women’ Political Leadership and Empowerment programme in Somalia by contributing in the programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation.  S/he supports the delivery of the programme by analyzing results achieved during implementation and supporting appropriate application of systems and procedures.  She/he works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women regional office staff, Government officials, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
