UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works 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.
In line with the Tanzania’s national priorities, the United Nations Development Assistance Plan 2016 – 2022 (UNDAP II) as well as internationally agreed normative standards, UN Women Tanzania’s Strategic Note (SN) for the period 2017-2021 lays out the agency’s unique role and comparative advantage in supporting national stakeholders in advancing gender equality and the empowerment of women by strengthening women’s leadership and participation in political and governance systems, gender statistics, implementation of global gender norms and standards, ending violence against women and girls, and women’s economic empowerment. To promote women’s economic empowerment including income security, decent work and economic autonomy of women, UN Women’s interventions address: policy and strategy-level support including enhancing capacities of policy makers and Local Government authorities in implementation of policies and strategies in selected economic sectors; removing financing barriers and capacitating women to invest in climate smart agriculture; and promoting opportunities and capacities of women farmers to move up the value chain and green agricultural supply chains.
To contribute to delivering the UNDAP II, UN Women and UNFPA in Tanzania are jointly launching a 3-year Joint Programme by support from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), entitled “Realizing Gender Equality through Empowering Women and Adolescent Girls”.
The three year-programme supports the ongoing efforts and commitment by the Government of Tanzania to improve women’s economic empowerment, agricultural transformation and poverty reduction, ending violence against women and children, village land use planning and issuance of certificates of customary rights of occupancy (CCROs) in line with the implementation of the Agriculture Sector Development Plan (ASDP) II, National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children (NPAVAWC 2017/18 – 2021/22) and the Village Land Act.
The objective of the programme is to enhance social and economic status of women and adolescent girls in Singida and Shinyanga Regions by: 1) economic empowerment of women and female youth farmers; and 2) enhancing capacity of the sub-national actors and community to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV), including harmful practices.
