Drive more effective and efficient UN system coordination and strategic partnerships

UN Women continued to convene and facilitate various platforms in driving effective and efficient UN system coordination and strategic partnerships, In specific terms UN Women ACO: § Co-chairs Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group (GiHA WG) coordination/clusters and WGs coordination: UN Women co-leads with IRC the Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group. GiHA WG continues to actively participate in Inter-Cluster Coordination Team (ICCT) to strengthen joint analysis and planning on the Humanitarian Cycle Planning process. GiHA WG provide inputs into two assessments that are core planning documents for the Humanitarian Response Plan, including the Whole of Afghanistan Assessment (WoAA) and the Seasonal Food Security Assessment (SFSA). GiHA WG continues to provide technical support to humanitarian clusters in placing women and girls at the center of their response, including in the context of the earthquake in Paktika and Khost that happened on 22 June 2022 through producing gender updates to inform the humanitarian response. § Provided Strategic and Technical Support to the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT): o Women Advisory Group : UN Women spearheaded the formation of a nine-member Afghan women advisory group to advise the HCT on how to better respond to the needs of women and girls and provide advice to improve the humanitarian community’s engagement with the Taliban at the central (Kabul) and local/provincial levels. WAG provide technical support to the Afghan WAG to the UN Humanitarian Country Team (HCT). § Chairs Gender Theme Group (GTG) : UN Women as the Chair of the Gender Working Group (renamed to Gender Theme Group in 2022) , in close collaboration with RCO and UNAMA, played a pivotal role reviving the UNCT Gender coordination mechanism since the Taliban siege of power in mid-August 2021. The Terms of Reference was updated, and gender action plan developed. § Co-chair of newly established Gender and Human Rights Strategic Thematic Working Group (G&HR STWG) in 2022. The G&HR STWG is a multi-stakeholder platform that aims to enhance coordination across the women’s rights programming and advocacy in Afghanistan and subsequently define sectorial work around the Joint Strategic Framework for Afghanistan Coordination Group. It brings together key donors and partners, elevates Afghan women’s voices, and represents an opportunity to position UN Women as the first partner on women’s rights in the country. This working group has replaced the Gender Donors Coordination Group to which UN Women was also co-chairing. § In partnership with UNHCR, co-led the Protection and Social Cohesion Technical Coordination Group established in the development of TEF . UN Women active participation and engagement contributed to the inclusion of a standalone result on gender equality in the UN Transitional Engagement Framework (TEF) for 2022. §In collaboration with UN Women Headquarters, strategically leveraged its participation in the Special Trust Fund for Afghanistan (STFA) to foster effective and efficient UN system coordination on gender equality and women's empowerment . The STFA is a Multi-Partner Trust Fund bringing together 17 participating UN agencies and funds, that enables donors to channel their funding towards the implementation of the Area-Based Approach for Development Emergency Initiatives Strategy. Through UN Women's advocacy, the STFA integrated Gender Equality Marker targets, currently set at the minimum of 15 per cent of funds going to interventions with gender equality/women’s empowerment as their primary purpose, within the fund's core document. UN Women's representation in Fund meetings - both at technical working level, and in high-level Steering Committee and Advisory Board meetings - furthermore drives a collaborative engagement on gender equality and women's empowerment programming principles across participating UN agencies.
