JPO - Programme Analyst, Gender - P2

Eritrea, Ma'ākel, Asmara - United Nations Development Programme

Background   Information on the receiving office:   Eritrea within a 1200km coastline and more than 300 islands in the Red Sea is strategically situated in the eastern part of Africa. It joined the international community in 1993 following liberation from Ethiopian colonialism in 1991 through an arduous thirty-year armed struggle. The socio-economic character of the Eritrean population comprises more than 80% agro-pastoralists, with the rest being mainly workers, merchants, students and professionals (EPHS 2010). Traditionally, the societal role and contribution of women in Eritrea has not been appropriately valued. Despite this patriarchal attitude, Eritrean women joined and played a vital role in the independence struggle. They constituted 30% of the total fighters carrying out different roles such as teachers, technicians, soldiers, doctors, nurses, laboratory technicians, public administrators, etc. In addition to their contribution in the struggle for self-determination, women fighters took the lead to fight the deep-rooted patriarchal and gender inequalities through the establishment of a women's association.    The National Union of Eritrean Women (NUEW), the only women's machinery in the country, was established in 1979 and mandated to mobilize women, raise awareness for the elimination of traditional harmful practices against women, and advocate and lobby for the issuance of proclamations and policies on gender equality, among other roles. This has laid the foundation for social justice and gender equality in Eritrea. In recognition of this important contribution, the Government has established policies and implemented programmes geared towards ensuring gender equality and creating a platform for women to strive in all aspects of civil society and government.    In 1995 the government ratified Convention on the  Elimination  of  All  Forms  of  Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). To ensure that the convention is easily accessible and understood, it has been translated into local languages. Other major international human rights instruments and conventions signed by the State of Eritrea include; the Convention on the Right of the Child  (1994),  the  Beijing  Platform  of  Action  (1995),  the  International  Convention  on  Abolition  of  Child  Labour  (2000),  the  MDGs  (2000)  and  the  International  Convention  on  Economic,  Social  and  Cultural  Rights  (2001).    UNDP Eritrea provides technical and financial support to the Government in the area of sustainable livelihood and environmental sustainability. This is done through strengthening the productive capacity of communities in agriculture and fishing, supporting community-based rehabilitation and disaster risk reduction as well as sustainable land management, climate change adaptation and through a small grants programme on community-based integrated watershed management.   As part of the new programming cycle, UNDP Eritrea will be prioritising its activities in this critical area and work closely with the national leadership in addressing these growing inequality trends.
