||The CO agrees with the recommendation to intensify the engagement in the country’s strategic orientation frameworks to ensure they are influenced by international gender equality commitments. For this purpose, UN Women CO Nigeria embarked on implementing a number of actions for addressing this recommendation from different thematic areas of intervention. Under the WPS thematic area, UN Women continued to provide support to the Government of Nigeria for the implementation of the UNSCR 1325 recommendations, the review of the Nigeria’s 2nd NAP, and preparatio of the 3rd NAP in the context of emerging issues including COVID-19 and post pandemic recovery, climate security and security sector reforms. In humanitarian action, the CO has conducted a joint Rapid Gender Analysis to identify the gender impact of COVID-19 on the conflict-affected population during the active period of the COVID-19. The CO is also working with humanitarian architectures in the Northeast, Including UN agencies, International Non-Governmental organizations, National, and regional governments, and the civil society organizations to ensure that COVID-19 response is gender-responsive. The CO will also continue to work with the Northeast humanitarian community to develop joint gender analysis/assessment of post-COVID-19 pandemic recovery. Beyond the analysis and assessment, from 2021 onward, the CO will identify strategic partnerships and develop a joint programme with a focus on supporting women’s economic empowerment to overcome the impact of COVID-19, and amplify women voices and leadership in the recovery process.
