“Realizing Gender Equality through Empowering Women and Adolescent Girls”
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in Tanzania have been implementing a three-year Joint Programme since 2020, entitled “Realizing Gender Equality through Empowering Women and Adolescent Girls”, in Shinyanga and Singida Regions with financial support from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
The Joint Programme has supported ongoing efforts and commitment by the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania to advance gender equality and end poverty by improving women’s economic status and agricultural transformation, strengthening village land use planning and ending all forms of violence and harmful practices against women and children, in line with the implementation of the Agriculture Sector Development Plan (ASDP) II, National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children (NPA-VAWC 2017/18 – 2021/22) and the Village Land Act.
The objectives of the Joint Programme are to enhance the social and economic status of women and adolescent girls in Ikungi district, Singida region and Msalala district, Shinyanga Region through: 1) economic empowerment of women and female youth farmers; and 2) enhancing the capacity of sub-national institutions and community to prevent and respond to Gender-based Violence (GBV) including harmful practices.
Since this is the last year of the Joint Programme implementation, an endline evaluation of the programme has been planned to determine its relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the programme in the target areas. The end-line evaluation will be done for the purpose of learning and accountability with recommendations to be provided for sustainability and scale-up.
