UN Women-CIV Strategic Note (SN), the main programme planning tool for the agency’s support to normative, coordination and operational work, will be ending this year (2016). The Strategic Note is aligned with UN Women’s Global Strategic Plan 2014-2017, national development plans and country-level UNDAFs.
The work of UN Women is focused on its three core mandates as follows:
Normative work: to support inter-governmental bodies, such as the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and the General Assembly, in their formulation of policies, global standards and norms;
Programme work: to help Member States implement international standards and to forge effective partnerships with civil society;
Coordination work: entails both work to promote the accountability of the United Nations System on gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE), and more broadly mobilizing and convening key stakeholders to ensure greater coherence and gender mainstreaming across the UN.
The Country Portfolio Evaluation (CPE) is a systematic assessment of the contributions made by a country office to development results with respect to gender equality. The CPE is primarily commissioned by the Country Office (CO) as a formative (forward-looking) evaluation to support the CO and national stakeholders’ strategic learning and decision-making. It uses the CO’s Strategic Note as the main point of reference.
