In the context of the emergence of UN Women, UNFPA worked to clarify for its staff comparative advantage and value-added areas, where UNFPA mandates will support UN efforts to transform gender relations, end gender-based violence and harmful practices and ensure that legislative frameworks are strengthened and implemented. The UNFPA Gender and Gender-based Violence Advisers participated in capacity building and strategic planning meetings. Capacity development strategies were aimed at policy and institutional levels and at improving technical assistance. Building on the outcomes of the 2008 Gender Capacity Assessment report, work was initiated to: i) harmonize and create more gender responsive indicators in the thematic funds; ii) to strengthen networks of regional Gender and Gender-based Violence advisers; and, iii) to support regions to develop in-country capacities with Country Office-level gender and gender-based violence focal points.

Many of IOM’s overseas pre-departure cultural orientation programmes specifically address domestic violence, female genital mutilation and other such practices that are both harmful to women and against the prevailing rule of law. IOM is working on improving the way this is reflected in curriculum and key priority messages, in training manuals and in supporting activities. IOM is also exploring how to best adopt more effective learning methodologies in order for participants to understand the underlying reasons why these practices are illegal and may have serious consequences, including the removal of children from families by child protective services.

In order to enhance the ability of Country Offices, Regional Service Centres and Regional Bureaux to deliver transformative results for gender equality, UNDP has created the UNDP Gender Equality Seal. The Seal is a corporate certification process that recognizes good performance in gender mainstreaming.  It offers three levels of certification (Bronze, Silver or Gold). An office/unit can be certified and awarded after the following four steps: the first step consists of a self-assessment based on a set of benchmarks. In the current round of the Seal, countries have to score positively on several mandatory benchmarks and score a certain % of other benchmarks to get any certification award. One of the benchmarks (3.2) aims at preventing workplace harassment, sexual harassment and abuse of authority and states that an office/unit policy has to be notified and implemented. Specific responsibilities for senior management include communicating the policy to staff; ensuring that staff complete the online training course on harassment and abuse of authority; acting as a role model and resource on the policy for staff members and non-staff personnel; ensure prevention of harassment, especially by supervisors; take prompt action for investigation and redress of any incidents; ensure confidentiality and sensitivity; and ensure that there is no retaliation against complainants. They are 43 currently participating countries that will have to complete this mandatory benchmark to qualify for a Seal certification.
