The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) was established by General Assembly resolution 64/289 of 2 July 2010 on system-wide coherence, with the mandate to assist countries and the United Nations system itself to progress more effectively and efficiently toward the goal of achieving gender equality, women’s empowerment and upholding women’s rights. The Strategic Plan developed pursuant to paragraph 77 of resolution 64/2892 is the first such plan created by UN Women.
The mission statement of UN Women was set out in the proposal of the Secretary-General as follows: “Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, the composite entity will work 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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, the composite entity will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.”
UN-Women Mozambique Strategic Note (SN) 2016-2020 was approved by the Deputy Executive Director of UN Women in 2016. The Mozambique SN is a forward-looking programmatic document that translates the UN Women Strategic Plan 2014-2017 to the country level and adapts it to the country context and priorities, including the UNDAF. The SN outlines the overall strategy and plan of action for the UN Women Mozambique Country office for the years 2016-2020 and includes a Development Results Framework (DRF) and an Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Framework (OEEF) with expected results and targets/ indicators/ baselines. Under DRF the main thematic areas include: Ending Violence Against Women (EVAW); Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Actions (WPS/HA), Women Economic Empowerment (WEE) and Global norms, policies and standards on gender equality;
Under UN Women’s policies and procedures in relation to programme management, a Mid-term review (MTR) is mandatory for programmes of at least three years duration. Mid-term review belongs to monitoring and planning areas and should not be confused with an evaluation, and it is considered as the most important monitoring event during the year and engagement of all staff in the mid-term review process is essential and mandatory.
In the case of UN Women Mozambique, strategic note-midterm review will be considered as the first step to assess the relevance of the current SN and to propose revision so that it reflects changes and developments that affect the lives of all Mozambican women and girls.
