 Monitoring and Evaluation Intern, GoK- UN Joint Programme on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (JP GEWE)

: 6 months, with an immediate start
Time: The work will be full time with an expected amount of 40 hours per week
The GoK – UN Joint Programme on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (JP GEWE) was initiated by the UN Country Team (UNCT) in 2009.
The global aid effectiveness agenda and the UN reform process of “Delivering as One” led to the decision to establish four key pilot joint programmes for UN agencies to combine their strengths and resources, and improve support to national development goals in Kenya.
JP GEWE represents an important landmark in enhancing the UN’s coherence and cohesiveness in Kenya in the field of gender equality and women’s empowerment. It brings together 14 UN agencies under one programmatic framework, underscores the UN‘s commitment to Delivering as One and provides a strong platform to serve the needs of Kenya in the area of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
The JP GEWE addresses five interrelated priority areas each lead by a UN agency based on its mandate and comparative advantage.
The priority areas are gender mainstreaming; gender-based violence; gender and governance; economic empowerment and UN coordination and Delivering as One.
