REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
EOI/GS/2019: individual consultant to conduct APRM Study on Gender
Country: South Africa
Date Issued: 23rd May, 2019
Gender is one of the key cross-cutting issue of the four thematic focus areas of the APRM since it is a recurrent concern in all areas of governance under the APRM instrument. APRM is described as “Africa’s unique and innovative approach to governance”. Particularly the Country Review Report and the National Programme of Action (NPoA) are the key documents for identifying priority objectives, interventions, duties and roles of key stakeholders. Together they present a potential opportunity for the identification, prioritisation and realisation of women’s rights in all the key APRM thematic areas.
In this regard, a comprehensive review of the key gender issues reflected in the country review Reports as well as implementation of the National Programmes of Action are appropriate at this stage, when a critical mass of African states have completed the review process and are undertaking implementation of identified goals.
The evidence-based Study Report analyses will provide valuable insights and seek to promote a better understanding of how the APRM can serve as a critical vehicle for monitoring and promoting gender equality in governance.
APRM intends to conduct a Study on Gender providing a comprehensive review of the key gender issues reflected in the country review Reports as well as implementation of the National Programmes of Action
