Overview of position
The main purpose of the assignment is to analyse the water and resilience sectors in Somaliland from a gender equality and women empowerment perspective. This involves looking closer at the policy and legal frameworks governing the sectors, if and how gender equality and anti-discrimination policies and relevant international treaties are implemented. The analysis should also focus on how, and to what extent,the different gender needs and interests of women and men (and girls and boys as appropriate), in all their diversity, as citizens, clients, consumers, workers and managers, suppliers, are met within these two sectors. The GSA should provide an understanding of the current and potential impact of the sector on gender equality, and conversely the impact of gender inequality on the sector (e.g. in terms of lost expertise, markets, engagement). It explores and documents gender gaps and barriers in policy and practice, and the impact of discriminatory social norms and attitudes for employment, work force segregation, and leadership in the sector. It assesses who benefits from the service or provision and why. And, importantly, it identifies what opportunities exist in the sector to promote gender-sensitive, gender-responsive and gender-transformative outcomes, good or promising practices, and entry points and opportunities for EU cooperation to promote gender equality using all instruments and investment frameworks and policy dialogue. The GSA should interrogate how gender inequality intersects with other inequalities on the grounds of age, disability status, ethnicity, caste, belief, sexual orientation, etc., as relevant to the sector. Likewise, it is critical to explore gender differences between rural and urban situations, the impact of geographical and environment factors and conflict, and the position of minority and marginalised communities. Every sector – infrastructure, trade, energy, agriculture, financial, ICT, security, etc. – can contribute to building greater equality; it can also deepen existing gender inequalities and reinforce explicit and implicit barriers if the needs and priorities of women and men in all their diversity are not heard, understood and addressed. The GSA is intended as an analytical and operational document.The Consultant will be under the direct supervision of the EU Delegation to Somalia & our client and he/she must be able to work independently to deliver the below duties and responsibilities:
