Terms Of Reference For Consultancy- Finalization of the Kenya KNAP on UNSCR 1325

Location: Nairobi, Kenya
Additional Category Women, Peace and Security
Type of Contract: SSA
Languages Required: English
Expected Duration of Assignment: 15 working days KNAP


United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, a first of a kind resolution, seeks to acknowledge the impact of conflicts on the lives of women. It recognizes the importance of utilizing women’s contribution and active participation in conflict prevention, peacekeeping, conflict resolution and peace-building. UNSCR 1325 acknowledges women as proactive agents for peace, therefore calls UN Member States to promote full participation, equal participation
and recognition of women in all peace and security initiatives.

Thirteen years since the passage of UNSCR 1325 on women, peace and security, alarmingly little has changed in terms of women’s engagement in peace talks, protection from sexual and gender-based violence during and after conflict, or engagement in post-conflict recovery in Kenya and the region as a whole. This deficit in women’s leadership of peace-making processes at the highly visible international level is matched at all other levels, regional, national and local.

To ensure effective and full implementation of these resolutions the United Nations Secretary General has requested member states to adopt the mandate, however implementation of the resolution is yet to be realized by many member states. As a response the Secretary General has appealed that counties develop strategies for implementing the resolutions through a National Action Plan (NAP) on 1325, which consists of a government’s specific goals, actions and results on women/gender, peace and security.

Kenya National Action Plan:

The genesis of developing the Kenya National Plan of Action on UNSCR 1325 in Kenya began with commitment for collaboration between the Government of Kenya and the Government of Finland through a twinning process that is mutually beneficial, whereby the global south and north would learn from one another. 

During a high level meeting in 2009 between the Government of Kenya-led by the former Vice President of the Republic of Kenya, Honorable Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka and the Government of Finland, led by former President of the Republic of Finland Tarja Halonen, a bilateral partnership was initiated and the Government of Finland committed to support Kenya towards developing the National Plan of Action on resolution UNSCR 1325.

The development was achieved through concentrated efforts and was inclusive and participatory as it involved a wide range of stakeholders including government institutions, civil society, media, development partners and higher learning institutions who were part of the National Steering Committee/Working Group which was constituted by the Former Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development.

Objective And Duties:

Under the close guidance, and support from the Peace and Security Specialist, the consultant will be recruited to facilitate the process of reviewing and re-aligning the KNAP to the Medium Term Plan II (MTP II), Vision 2030, government structure and to emerging security priorities of Kenya.

Reference Documents:

UN Women Kenya and the National Steering Committee on Peace-Building and Conflict Management (NSC) will identify the main reference documents

Expected Deliverables
  • Inception report
  • Revised and approved KNAP by GOK and UN Women
  • A final report of the KNAP re-alignment process that includes consultations held
Qualifications and Experience:
  • Advanced degree in Law or Social Sciences, i.e. Conflict Resolution/Peace-building, International Relations, Political Science and Gender Studies.
  • Minimum of 10 years of working in the field of development with a focus on the promotion of gender equality, human rights and transitional justice.
