UNDP TUNISIA is seeking a Gender advisor offering technical support for the organisation of the Tunisian Gender Equality Forum, April 2019

The terms of reference are available in the following websites:

– UNDP Procurement:  http://procurement-notices.undp.org/  under number 52521

– ONU en Tunisie: http://www.onu-tn.org/appels_offres.php.

– PNUD Tunisie: http://www.tn.undp.org/content/tunisia/fr/home/operations/procurement/




The government of Tunis will host a Forum on Gender Equality, that will take place from 23-25 April 2019, to follow on from the Stockholm Forum on Gender Equality in April 2018.

The Tunis Forum for gender equality will take place one year before the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA), as well as one year before the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council  Resolution 1325 which set the standard for women, peace and security. The forum will also take place before the first Global Sustainable Development Report is presented to the autumn summit on the SDGs and will be an opportunity to integrate and connect the key elements of these processes and recommend future actions.

The forum will be a platform for discussion, interaction between key actors from governments, civil society, private sector, media and regional and international organizations. The aim will be to ensure at least 50% participation from young women and men under 35, with a view to preparing a new vision for Beijing +25 – to reclaim the language of feminist discourse from dominant conservative voices that have pushed the gains of Beijing backwards. The forum will also focus on the role of women in local governments to transform the lives of the community in the context of sustainable cities and new municipality organization. A third pillar of discussion will focus on post conflict reconstruction and the opportunities for gender equality. This will also be an opportunity to link CEDAW recommendations and the 1325 agenda.

The Tunis forum will build on the outcomes of other international forums regarding Gender Equality and, in particular, on the different initiatives, commitments and partnerships that have resulted from the Stockholm Forum.

The key organizing partners for the Tunisia forum will be the Government of Tunisia, notably the Ministry of Women, Family, Childhood and Seniors, UNDP and UNWomen working in collaboration with the government of Sweden and other UN agencies and civil society organisations.

Local, national and international Civil Society will play an essential role in the organization of the forum. Civil Society, especially young women’s networks will be solicitated to co-create the Forum’s form and substance and facilitate seminars, debates and workshops and to participate in the follow-up of the outcomes of the forum.

The event will end with the adoption of a Tunis Declaration on Gender Equality and the Sustainable Development Goals that will, amongst other aims, inform the conference planned for 2020 on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the BPfA.

Live sessions of the different seminars, debates and workshops will be disseminated through the website of the Forum and through social media, allowing broader visibility and participation in the forum.
