Long Description

The overall goal of this project is to ensure that Peace, Security and Recovery Processes contribute to Gender Equality, Women and Girls' Rights and Empowerment. It will be achieved through 3 interrelated outcomes and 5 outputs described below as well as a set of indicative activities, which are detailed in the results framework.

Outcome 1: Women and girls' safety, physical and mental health and security are enhanced and their human rights protected

Outcome 2: The Socio-economic recovery of women and girls are increased in the post conflict setting

Outcome 3: The enabling environment for sustainable implementation of Women, Peace and Security commitments is strengthened

Output 1.1: Women and girls affected by violence have access to comprehensive services to redress including appropriate protection, health and psychosocial and legal services in resettlement and returning areas

Output 2.1: Women and girls have increased access to economic opportunities in the context of recovery from conflict

Output 2.2: Women and girls capacity to participate meaningfully in conflict prevention/resolution strengthened

Output 3.1: Capacity of the Ministry of Gender to coordinate, monitor implementation of the NAP and fulfil UN reporting requirements strengthened

Output 3.2: National capacity to implement and generate knowledge on WPS enhanced

The underlying strategy of the Project is the Human Rights Approach. The Project will simultaneously cover the areas of service delivery, engagement and so as to demonstrate the added value of NAP in the Mozambican context and mobilize additional attention, interest and resources to sustain efforts in the area with an emphasis on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals as well as international frameworks on women's human rights and women, peace and security. Capacity strengthening of duty-bearers (service providers), of rights-holders (women and their organizations) and evidence-based policy advocacy are key strategies for the Project.

The Project builds on the theory of change that, that is, if a solid response to violence against women and girls is ensured in the aftermath of the conflict, if women have access to economic opportunities and participate effectively in peacebuilding, this process is more likely to meet the needs of a broader range of society's stakeholders, and therefore likelier to be sustained and result in lasting peace. The inextricable link between inclusion, peace and sustainable development is indeed such that it has been universally recognized through Objective 16 of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG): “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions”.

The Project will work through targeted interventions that are practical and replicable to ensure that conflict resolution and recovery efforts are more gender-responsive. It will build on UN Women's accumulated expertise, methodologies and network of partners in the areas of prevention and response to violence against women and girls, economic empowerment, advocacy as well as capacity and knowledge building in order to provide quality and integrated responses to the multifaceted needs. Besides capacity building, the project will invest in cross learning among beneficiaries in order to create a solid base for sustainability of the results. Given the inexistence of a solid base of data and information on the impact of the conflict on women and girls, the Project will be implemented in three phases.
