In the Concluding observations on the second periodic report of Montenegro (CEDAW/C/MNE/CO/2, 2017), Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW Committee) recommends to “conduct an assessment of the impact of the various capacity-building efforts and, based on the outcome, take the measures necessary to increase their efficiency“. The evaluation of the national Action Plan for Achieving Gender Equality (APAGE) 2017-2021 revealed capacity gaps among the public administration staff at all levels to assess the implications of planned actions, legislation, policies or programmes on women and men, boys and girls. The OSCE Mission to Montenegro in partnership with the Department for Gender Equality (DGE) of the Ministry for Justice and Human and Minority Rights (MJHMR) of Montenegro supports structured and systemic gender mainstreaming in the formulation, implementation and monitoring of policies and programmes, in all areas and at all levels of public administration. In 2021, the Mission will hire a consultant to assess the knowledge and attitudes of public administration staff regarding gender mainstreaming and provide a plan to develop their capacities to effectively integrate gender in their daily work.
The Democratization Programme therefore invites applications from highly qualified, energetic and experienced local professionals for the temporary consultancy post of Local Consultant for Inter-sectoral Cooperation, who will be working jointly with second consultant to assess the extent to which the previous capacity-building efforts on gender equality, targeted at public administration staff and officials, were synchronized, how knowledge was utilized, shared and measured. It is expected to propose optimization of capacity development efforts through structured inter-sectoral and inter-ministerial cooperation. The two consultants will provide a joint report on the findings and recommendations.
The objective of the consultancy is to create Capacity Assessment Report assessing impact of the gender related capacity-building efforts conducted in the last 5 years targeting mechanisms for gender equality. Specifically, it should explore whether there was a systematic and synchronized approach in regard to training on gender equality, knowledge and skills generated to effectively include gender perspective in the everyday work, and it should explore new responsibilities to improve the quality of services for women and men, girls and boys. Findings will serve as a basis for a comprehensive Capacity Development Plan, that would represent a structured approach towards the public administration staff capacity development. The overall aim of the assignment is to contribute to institutional transformation, increased intersectoral/inter-ministerial coordination and provision of fair and gender-sensitive policies, programmes and services for citizens - men and women, girls and boys.
