SWAP Gender Equality Scorecard, assessment report and action plan

The 2019 UNCT in Ethiopia Gender Equality Scorecard applies the new UNCT-SWAP guidelines to assess progress made in mainstreaming gender in the current Ethiopia UNDAF cycle 2016–2020. The objectives of the assessment are to identify areas where this UNDAF is meeting/not meeting minimum UN Development Group requirements; stimulate a constructive dialogue about the current status of support for gender equality and women's empowerment and how it can be improved; identify whether technical assistance can support the achievement of minimum requirements and share good practices for supporting national priorities to advance gender equality and women's empowerment. The findings and recommendations are intended to enhance UNCT’s internal processes and measures used to account for gender mainstreaming and GEWE results. The assessment provides timely inputs to the upcoming United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2020–2025 Roadmap and strengthens the UNCT’s support to the Government of Ethiopia’s (GoE) planning and accelerated implementation of the SDGs through the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP III) and the Ten Years’ Perspective Development Plan.
