The United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM)
is the women's fund that provides financial and technical
assistance to innovative programmes and strategies that promote
women's human rights, political participation and economic
security. UNIFEM is guided by its Strategic Business Plan (SBP)
with the objective of contributing to the realization of African
women's empowerment towards poverty eradication, gender inequality
and all forms of human insecurity in both stable and fragile states.
Placing the realization of women's human rights and security
is at the centre of all its efforts.
UNIFEM Southern Africa and the Indian Oceans Regional
Office (herewith referred to as UNIFEM SRO) covers 14 countries.
These are: Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Mozambique, Mauritius,
Malawi, Madagascar, Namibia, Seychelles, Swaziland, South Africa,
UNIFEM builds its Sub Regional Strategy and annual
Work plan on a clear understanding of the situation experienced
by women in each of the countries of the region. For this reason,
a thorough review of the current challenges and opportunities is
annually undertaken. The obtained findings are the basic information
that will inform an important component of the regional planning.
This year, a preliminary research has been prepared
by UNIFEM Southern Africa. However, a review of this document with
incorporation of consolidated and final contents is now necessary
in order to obtain a definitive version, which will be used to justify
and inform 2010 UNIFEM SARO annual workplan.
In this light, the services of a consultant are
sought to develop a final document with a country analysis for each
of the fourteen (14) countries covered by UNIFEM Southern Africa.
