The Women’s Leadership and Political Participation Project (Wanawake
Wanaweza) Phase II promotes gender equality and the empowerment of women
as per UN Women’s global mandate and supports the Government of
Tanzania as a Member State to the United Nations to implement
international standards, providing suitable technical and financial
assistance. This second phase of the project aims to achieve the
overarching goal/impact “Women lead and participate in decision-making
at all levels”. The project comprises two essential coordination
mechanisms: 1) The Steering Committee with representation of Development
Partners, the National Gender Machinery and Responsible Parties,
provides strategic direction to the project; 2) The Technical Committee
is composed of Responsible parties with the aim of enhancing
collaboration and synergies.
Additionally, within the
United National Development Assistance Programme (UNDAP), UN Women leads
the Outcome Group on Women’s Leadership and Political Participation
(WLPP OG) within the Thematic Results Group on Governance, Human Rights
and Gender Equality. With the UN in the last year of UNDAP II
implementation a key task for the WLPP OG will be to contribute to the
development of a Country Gender Equality Profile (CGPE) and other
strategic processes which will inform the next UN Sustainable
Development Corporation Framework (UNSDCF).
2. The UN
Tanzania COVID-19 Coordination Framework was established early in the
pandemic and includes three pillars: Public Health, Socio-Economic
Impact and Leaving No One Behind (LNOB). Each pillar is co-led by two UN
Agencies, with UN Women and UNFPA leading the LNOB pillar. The
framework was designed to secure a comprehensive overview of all related
activities within the UNDAP II structure, as well as coordinate
short-term and longer-term response and recovery efforts. To date this
has included drafting an Emergency Appeal and developing a
Socio-Economic Response Framework (which is currently ongoing) and will
continue with other upcoming strategic opportunities.
