UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, the empowerment of women, and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, peace and security.
UN Women in Timor-Leste is working in partnership with stakeholders in four main priorities areas to contribute to UN Women’s global goals such as women’s economic empowerment, women in peace and security, ending violence against women, and mainstreaming of gender equality into national planning and budgeting.
The Fifth Constitutional Government was inaugurated on 8 August 2012 following successful Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. In February 2015 it was replaced, after a smooth political transition to a smaller Unity Government and new opportunities to advance gender equality. Having moved away from peace building to state building, the Government of Timor-Leste is focusing its efforts on socio-economic development and institutional strengthening as outlined in the V-VIth Government Programme.
In Timor-Leste gender equality is guaranteed by the Constitution of 2002, and the Government as a signatory of CEDAW has committed to elimiate any form of discrimination against women. Gender equality and women’s empowerment is part of the Governments ambitious 20 year Strategic Development Plan and they have set the target to be “a gender fair society where human dignity and women’s rights are valued, protected and promoted by our laws and culture” by 2030. Gender mainstreaming has been adopted as a strategy for achieving gender equality since 2002 by the various Constitutional Governments. Since 2011, the country also has a Gender Working Group system at the highest level of decision making in all line ministries and secretary of states, as well as in the districts, with the objective to ensure gender mainstreaming at all government levels.
Description of the project
UN Women launched the project “Institutional Strengthening for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Timor-Leste” in June 2013 for three and a half year, finishing in December 2016. It is generously funded by the Government of Norway through the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project’s overall development goal is for the Government of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste to demonstrate increased accountability for the implementation of gender equality commitments.
The expected outcomes of the project are:
1) Gender equality provisions of the Programme of the Fifth Constitutional Government in three selected ministries (Finance, State Administration and Justice) implemented by 2017; and
2) Gender equality advocates’ capacities to demand accountability increased
The project is aligned to the UN Women Development Results Impact 5: Governance and national planning fully reflect accountability for gender equality commitments and priorities and to the Country Impact 4: Governance and national planning fully reflects accountability for gender equality commitments and priorities. It is also aligned to Government priorities as set out in the Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 (SDP), as well as in the V-VIth Constitutional Government Plan.
The project’s theory of change focuses on strengthening the institutional capacity of Government entities to mainstream gender across policies, programmes, processes and budgets. Institutional strengthening is one of the pillars of our work in Timor-Leste. UN Women is providing technical and financial support for capacity development as a sustainable strategy to our partners to lead and promote gender equality and women’s rights in Timor-Leste. Aligning with national priorities, UN Women with United Nations Country Team had provided inputs into the Vth Government Programme and one of the key programme areas is capacity development on mainstreaming gender into policies, programmes, laws, plans and budgets.
Of increasing importance to gender mainstreaming interventions in Timor-Leste is review of internal structure, procedures, culture and human resources of institutions and organisations, as well as in their respective programming practice. While efforts have focused on integrating gender equality principles into policies, plans, laws and programmes, the review of structures, procedures and human resources/internal capacity and measurement of these require building and strengthening.
Therefore the project is designed to utilize existing mechanism within the Government and Civil Society, and review internal structures, procedures, cultural and human resources for the advancement of women. The project also looks at building capacity of gender advocates especially to ask the government to be accountable towards gender equality.
The project supports the Secretary of State for Support and Socio-Economic Empowerment of Women (SEM) in performing its role as a catalyst, advocate and oversight agency within the government system to incorporate gender equality principles into plans, programmes, structures and budgets of government organizations, aligned to its strategic goals 2010-2015:
Goal 1) Building SEM’s institutional capacity in gender mainstreaming;
Goal 3) Advocate for gender mainstreaming in government institutions and state agencies.
The project has built the capacity of SEM to interact with key institutions as the Prime Minister’s office and the Ministry of Finance, and not to only rely on the gender architecture of gender mainstreaming, namely the Gender Working Groups (GWG) and the district GWG. Strategic partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Prime Minister’s Office on planning and budgeting has started to provide an effective entry points for mainstreaming of gender into the key sectors of the Strategic Development Plan and the V-VIth Government Programme.
For this, SEM’s role had to be enhanced in providing expertise on gender mainstreaming utilizing on one hand the planning and budgeting systems of the Government and on the other the GWG to advocate mainstreaming of gender into the Strategic Sector and Sub-Sector Groups of the SDP.
Framed by international standards and norms, using a multi-treaty approach (CEDAW and other HR treaties, BPfA and SDGs), technical assistance is provided through SEM to the Gender Working Groups at national level on use and analysis of data for policy making and annual planning and budgeting, implementation and monitoring. In order to support the implementation, monitoring and reporting of CEDAW, increased support will be needed to collect sex disaggregated data, raise awareness about CEDAW and build Government capacity to implement, monitor and report about CEDAW. The CEDAW review process scheduled for 2015 and the 2015 National Census has been an opportunities for coordination across sectors, and work with the General Directorate of Statistics to improve data collection.
The project initially targeted two sub-sectors of the SDP, namely decentralization and justice. With the VIth Government increased interest for economic development, and the amended mandate of SEM on Socio-Economic Empowerment of Women, the project includes Agriculture as a key focus area, seen the high number of women involved in this sector. The delays and restructuring of the roll-out of the decentralization process have also impacted the ability to work in a sustainable way to this role. Therefore capacity of civil society, through the Gender and Decentralization Working Group was built to be able to monitor the process and advocate for gender sensitive policy reforms.
In addition, civil society organizations representing women’s voice to call to account commitments made on gender equality and women’s empowerment need sustained strengthening. Rede Feto is a network of 24 member organizations that has been an important venue for mobilization of support on women’s rights in Timor-Leste. The role of Rede Feto as a collective voice of advocacy around issues of gender equality and women’s empowerment is crucial and therefore requires support. As with many CSOs, financial, administration and management of the Secretariat of the network has been an issue in the past years and as such has affected the role of Rede Feto as an advocacy network. Support to Rede Feto has been provided to ensure that accountable financial and management systems are put in place in order for the Secretariat to better serve its members. The project has been looking at building institutional capacity of the Secretariat of Rede Feto and its network members on financial management and advocacy. In addition, capacity development also focused on substantive areas of women’s human rights, including monitoring implementation of CEDAW in sectors and tracking expenditure of State budgets. Ownership building is the key priority of the project support to the Rede Feto Network.
In complement to SEM’s role, it is seen as crucial to develop capacity in training and academic institutions to create national capacity on Gender Equality to decrease reliance on international experts in the longer term. The project initiated cooperation with the National University of Timor-Leste (UNTL), through the Gender Studies Center, to develop the GSC curriculum with ownership and support from staff members currently running the Center as well as integrated gender and development into core courses of UNTL.
