Programme Specialist, Women’s Economic Empowerment

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.

UN Women Tanzania is implementing its Country Strategic Note (2017-2021), under which one of the priority areas of focus is Women’s Economic Empowerment, with the goal that women have income security, engage in decent work and have economic autonomy. The normative work of UN Women in this area is guided by the agreed conclusions of CSW 61, and the recommendations of the Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment. This work is also guided by the Tanzania Development Vision 2030, the Zanzibar Vision 2020, the Five-Year Development II, the Mkuza Successor Strategy for Zanzibar, the Gender Policy, the Agricultural Sector Development Plan II, SME Policy, Land Policy, Financial Inclusion Policy, National Economic Empowerment Policy, the Beijing Platform of Action (BPfA), the Convention for the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), African Union Agenda 2063 and other international, regional and national frameworks. UN Women’s work on economic empowerment for women is also aligned to the United Nations Development Assistance Plan (2016 -2021), more specifically the thematic results areas on Inclusive Growth and Resilience.

The Country Office supports strategies and interventions that address women’s persistent poverty and exclusion by focusing on women’s income security, decent work, and economic autonomy through: increasing the number of policies that promote decent work and social protection for women; enabling more women to own, launch, and better manage large, medium, and small enterprises; and promoting rural women’s access to productive resources and engagement in climate sustainable agriculture. The office also supports macroeconomic policy frameworks and interventions that expand women’s economic empowerment, increase the capacity of economic and financial institutions to eliminate inequalities and generate economic wellbeing and opportunities for all women, within the context of CEDAW, BPfA, ILO Conventions, SDGs, Africa Union Agenda 2063, other international standards and norms and national policies and frameworks
