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 Philippines office will be working and implementing its new workplan with strong components on joint programming and coordination aligned to  the newly signed United Nations Philippines Sustainabile Development Cooperation Framework 2024 – 2028. The vision is to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls and the full enjoyment of their human rights in the Philippines, aligned to the aspirations of the Philippine Development Plan and the UNSDCF. To accomplish this, we work with our partners across the Philippines to implement targeted programmes that support women, peace and security, women’s economic empowerment, women’s leadership and participation, ending violence against women, humanitarian/DRR and climate change issues. A focus on women’s empowerment, leadership and governance, challenging negative gender norms and leaving no one behind runs through PPO’s work and programme.

With the newly signed United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2024-2028 for the UN Country Team (UNCT) in the Philippines, UN Women intends to mainstream GEWE across the three key outcomes on human capital development, sustainable and economy, climate action, environment and disaster resilience.  UN Women also has as one of its mandates, the advancement of UN system-wide Coordination to advance GEWE, including by leveraging with UN inter-agency mechanisms as co-Chair of the United Nations Gender Theme Group, Gender in Humanitarian Action, LNOB,  Monitoring and Evaluation Group, the Human Rights Taskforce, and the UNSDCF’s Result Groups.

For its implementation, it also hopes to ensure that efforts to advance the same align with the requirements of the UNCT System-wide Accountability Plan (UNCT SWAP) Gender Equality scorecard including in the development of the Joint Work Plans, joint programming, monitoring and reporting efforts and also in the financial investments towards advancing GEWE. Building UNCT capacities in line with these expectations, and in also supporting the UNCT in promoting an organizational culture that advances GEWE, are other key areas in which UN Women is required to play a lead role.

Also, gender-responsive Results-Based Management (RBM) is one of the key strategies for impactful program implementation of UN Women at corporate, regional and country level. This has been reflecting in UN Women’s result management system which require an evident based report at multiple levels of result, including output, outcome, and impact. Documentation of good practices and lessons learnt of programme implementation is another significant element of UN Women’s result management system. This will contribute to learning, visibility and resource mobilization.

Under the overall guidance and direction of Philippines Country Programme Coordinator, the Policy, Planning and Coordination Analyst will be  responsible for providing analytical and technical support to the UN Women Philippines Office in engaging with the UNSDCF joint work planning, implementation, monitoring, reporting and evaluation by using UN System system-wide accountability frameworks to advance GEWE.
