|Development partners, in particular UN Women and UNDP, have rendered technical support to the MGECW. UN Women and MGECW have agreed to mobilize further resources for technical support of the Cluster on Governance, peace and security, where the Ministry of Defence is a member, in 2016. The long term goal is for MGECW and the Republic of Namibia in general to develop internal gender capacity that can be relied on to plan, implement, monitor and report on gender equality goals.
||MGECW with Support from UNDP, UN Women and other relevant development partners. MGECW’s role in guiding and managing development partners’ support is critical
No Longer Applicable
||UN Women provided technical support to the Ministry of Defence which completed a Women Peace and Security Action plan through this support in 2019.
Other UN Agencies and development partners continue to render technical support within their mandates. For instance, GRB is led by UNDP and it includes gender mainstreaming.
UN conducted a gender score card assessment in 2020 and will use the results of assessment to strengthen gender responsiveness in programming.
Contexts, circumstances and need for technical support change continously hence technical support is ongoing. The action does not necessitate further specific tracking in the context of this evaluation report hence recommendation is no longer applicable.
