Seeking Experts to Develop Online Training Program
UN Women is committed to the advancement of women’s human rights and places their realization at the centre of its work in all thematic areas. One of the primary ways UN Women works to advance women’s human rights is by providing support to national actors, in government and in civil society, for their efforts to implement the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). South Asia has made significant progress with regard to CEDAW reporting and implementation. However the extent of progress varies across the region and considerable challenges remain with regard to the full realization of women’s rights. UN WOMEN South Asia is committed to expanding the pool of resource persons in the region who can undertake capacity development and provide technical assistance on CEDAW at the regional, national and local level.
UN Women is seeking applications from highly qualified organizations with extensive expertise and knowledge of CEDAW and past experience in conducting training workshops to develop an online UN Women certificate course on the CEDAW for South Asia. This will ensure that the trainings are not limited to physical workshops and can be accessed across the region. This course would be free of cost and certified by UN Women. The online course would also build on the online resources currently being housed on the CEDAW South Asia website (www.cedawsouthasia.org) UN Women South Asia website. The closing date for submission of proposals is 25 April 2012.
