Consultancy to develop a Social Cohesion Project Strategy and Document

Malawi has a reputation for being a peaceful and stable country but the events of 20/21 July 2011 that led to 20 deaths were a wake-up that Malawi cannot take its peace for granted.Over the years, the country has benefitted from the use of traditional conflict management mechanisms and practices in resolving local and national conflicts. Government, Civil Society Organizations and other stakeholders have provided various forms of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. These institutions include the Judiciary, District Labour Offices, the Office of the Ombudsman, Malawi Human Rights Commission, Public Affairs Committee, National Forum for Peaceful Resolution of Conflicts, etc. While some of these institutions have played a critical role in managing national conflicts, their efforts have been impeded by two main challenges, namely; lack of enabling legislation and absence of a national peace architecture that promotes pro-active rather than reactive conflict management in the country. As a result, their efforts were mostly being ad-hoc and unsustainable. The country’s commitment to continued use of non-violent means of resolving conflicts is specifically provided for in the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi under section 13(l) which states; “adoption of mechanisms by which differences are settled through negotiation, good offices, mediation, conciliation and arbitration”. In furtherance of this commitment, and following the 2011 violence, the Government of Malawi invited the United Nations to provide support in building national capacities for peace and dialogue.Ongoing support to the government to develop a National Peace Architecture (NPA) has seen the establishment of three pilot District Peace Committees (DPCs) and a final draft national peace policy awaiting cabinet approval. National Peace Architecture is understood as a dynamic network of independent structures, mechanisms, resources, values and skills which, through dialogue and consultation contribute to conflict prevention and peacebuilding in a society. A full-fledged NPA mechanism is expected to be in place by end of 2018.The UN is also supporting the Public Affairs Committee (PAC), an interfaith organization, as ‘insider mediators’, playing the roles of intermediaries between national leaders, and as advocates for peace and good governance.

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is a body created under Section 75 of the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi to supervise and direct the conduct of all elections in Malawi i.e. Parliamentary, Presidential, By-elections, Local Government and Referenda. The Commission conducts these elections in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi, Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Act No.31 of 1993 (PPEA), Local Government Elections Act No.24 of 1996 and Electoral Commission Act No.11 of 1998 (ECA).The Electoral Commission Act Section 8 (j) further mandates the Commission to “promote public awareness and other appropriate and effective means and to conduct civic and voter education on such matters.” The Commission’s role is to fulfil this mandate, comply with international standards of managing elections and delivery of civic and voter education. In addition, the various stakeholders that are involved in Civic and Voter Education (CVE) need guidance on the key areas that they need to concentrate on in imparting information to the grassroots. Stakeholders also need to be aware of issues that form the content of voter education and voter information and the specific periods when these two can be delivered to the electorate to achieve maximum output.Although the Commission’s main focus on the provision of voter information/education is aligned to the various electoral processes, it also ensures that it coordinates and provides adequate information to civic and voter education practitioners so that they in turn impart the same information in a timely and adequate manner to the public.Prior to each election and in liaison with the various stakeholders, the Commission develops a CVE strategy that provides a guide and direction on how to deliver civic and voter education programmes. The CVE strategy outlines the key areas of focus, target groups, delivery methodologies, media, roles of various stakeholders, accreditation process, codes of conduct, mapping and issues of monitoring and evaluation.This activity will be implemented under the Malawi Electoral Cycle support (MECs) programme 2017 – 2019 which is a basket fund pooling resources from various development partners and is managed by UNDP..

This activity will be implemented under the Malawi Electoral Cycle Support (MECS) Programme 2017-2019 which is a basket fund pooling resources from various development partners and is managed by UNDP.The MECS Project contributes directly to the SDG 16 goal of ensuring responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels.

Consultancy to Carry out a Comparative Advantage and Stakeholder Analysis of the UN

The UN Country Team (UNCT) in Malawi, in planning for the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF 2019-2023), proposes to commission a study to assess the comparative advantages of the UN system in Malawi. The assessment will be based on the views of the UN’s main stakeholders, including government, development partners, civil society and the UN itself. In doing so, it is anticipated that a clearer, more focused vision will be developed, ensuring common objectives can achieve their potential for the benefit of the citizens of Malawi.While the UN will continue to strongly support the Government of Malawi in its national priorities and delivery of services, a comparative advantage and stakeholder analysis (CASA) will be a forward-looking projection of UN capacities and its positioning at the country level. By coming together around more strategic objectives that reflect the UN’s comparative advantage, focusing on areas where the UN system can best add value, it is envisioned that the UN will contribute to Malawi’s future while also enhancing the relevance and credibility of the UN in Malawi.Recognizing that the UN is, by no means, the only contributor to Malawi’s development trajectory, a central component of this exercise is to outline what specific areas in Malawi’s development the UN holds a comparative advantage over other stakeholders. A robust CASA will allow the UN to assess its strengths, pulling together responses to the myriad of challenges facing Malawi in a holistic manner.Using a broad lens, the analysis will articulate how the UN in Malawi is placed in ensuring the implementation of international norms and standards; the amplification of voices of the poor; the underprivileged, discriminated and disabled, in the spirit of “leaving no one behind”; a vigorous advocacy role for greater equality, social inclusion, gender empowerment and human rights; an invigorated role as a catalyst for collaborative programmes involving all sectors of society; and a strengthened capacity to coordinate international initiatives while mobilizing expertise currently scattered throughout the public, private and voluntary sectors. Fundamentally, the analysis should illuminate the potential in the multiple dimensions of the UNs work, especially those found at the interface of humanitarian action and development cooperation. Additionally, the UN’s ability as compared to other actors in the field in improving coherence of public, private actions across sections through norm-setting and collaboration should be discussed.A complete catalogue of areas where the UN does or does not have a comparative advantage should not be the focus. Instead, based on an already finalized Root Cause Analysis, the CASA should, while considering all stakeholder’s activities, outline the areas where the UN adds the most value to development initiatives in Malawi.Finally, it should be noted that the CASA study is not interpreted to mean agency specific mandate; rather, it is a realistic assessment of expertise and value added, and may draw on agency specific assessments in the context of Delivering as One in Malawi. Consequentially, the analysis should seek to show where the One UN in Malawi can bring its unique strengths to bear in advocacy, capacity development, programming, and cutting edge knowledge, innovation and policy advice, among others, for the achievement of internationally agreed standards and development goals.

In its desire to ensure that the country remains peaceful and resolute, the Government of Malawi has commenced the process of establishing a National Peace Architecture (NPA) to serve as the national pillar for peacebuilding, conflict prevention and transformation. The NPA will functionally be represented at national and district levels where its structures will be engaging in a collaborative manner with other key stakeholders in reconciliation and transformative dialogues that foster national cohesion. Considering the above, Government established 3 pilot District Peace Committees (DPCs) in Karonga, Mangochi and Kasungu in 2016, as a first step and a test towards learning lessons for the roll-out of the NPA structures nationwide. The establishment of these pilots has been based on the provisions of the draft National Peace Policy, which was validated at a National Stakeholders workshop in March 2015 and submitted to Government for approval. Membership to the DPCs comprises of representatives from different stakeholders nominated in an open and transparent manner by their stakeholder groups within the district and appointed by the Chairperson of the District Council upon vetting by the full council. The DPCs are mandated to engage collaboratively with other stakeholders within the district to sustain peace and unity, create and facilitate spaces for dialogue between groups, and communities for the exchange of ideas on issues that may threaten peace and stability within the communities in the district. Their specific functions include:To serve as the district pillar for peacebuilding, conflict prevention, management, resolution and transformation; To promote peace within the districtTo engage in trust and confidence building activities between groups and communities in conflict in the districtTo provide a platform upon which district dialogues on social, economic, political, ethnic and religious challenges can be held in a peaceful manner.To provide conflict sensitive advice to the district administration and councilors;To provide safe spaces for facilitated dialogues;To mediate between conflict parties;To refer cases of a regional or national nature to the NPA SecretariatTo liaise with and report to NPA Secretariat for smooth functioning of the DPCTo monitor and report on conflict early warning indicatorsTo provide annual reports to NPA Secretariat and District Councilconduct regular meetings with peace building agencies within the district for experience sharing and knowledge management

Individual Consultancy to Produce the UN Development Assistance Framework 2019-2023

The United Nations (UN) in Malawi is formulating a new United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), which will allow the UN to respond to the Malawi Government’s medium term strategy and integrate the 2030 Agenda into its medium-term programming. To date, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) has implemented several activities, including a Root-Cause Analysis, and a Comparative Advantage and Stakeholder Analysis. In doing so, a clearer, focused vision will be developed to ensure people-centered UN programming over the medium term.The UN will continue to respond to the priorities of the Government of Malawi and delivery of services in line with the inter-sectoral nature of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By coming together around strategic objectives that reflect the UN’s comparative advantage, focusing on areas where the UN system can best add value, it is envisioned that the UNDAF will contribute to Malawi’s future while also enhancing the relevance and credibility of the UN in Malawi.Recognizing that the UN is, by no means, the only contributor to Malawi’s development trajectory, developing new and existing partnerships and synergies will be a central component of the successor UNDAF, not only between UN agencies, but also between the UN and the various stakeholders operating across the development spectrum in Malawi. A robust UNDAF will outline the UNs strengths, pulling together responses to the challenges facing Malawi in a holistic manner.The UNDAF will translate the global and regional goals into localized implementable priorities to support coordinated action on all three dimensions of sustainability i.e. economic, social and environmental. Additionally, cross-sectoral interventions will be recognized as an enabler to the achievement of leaving no-one behind, not only to foster cohesion, but to inclusively engage stakeholders, at all levels, to advance evidence based policies and programmes and to reach the most vulnerable.All programmes within the UNDAF will emphasize the application of universal standards, principles and values, including Malawi’s international human rights obligations. The conceptualization of the universality of principles will demand greater partnering; increased public engagement; knowledge sharing and data transparency; more institutional openness and innovation. These factors will test how fit the UN in Malawi is for the universal agenda. From strategic planning, through identification of needs, selecting and testing appropriate methodologies, concluding in holistic analysis and design, the UNDAF will focus on achieving the human rights of the most marginalized population groups first.Reaching the last mile will necessitate a more precise understanding of the structural drivers of deprivation, exclusion, and discrimination. Essential to achieving the SDGs, the UNDAF will include a robust data strategy emphasizing an increase in the frequency, quality and use of data, allowing for further integration across sectors and informing programme interventions. The UNDAF data strategy will ensure stronger disaggregated data to improve targeting of interventions which impact the most vulnerable groups including girls, women, migrants, refugees, older persons, persons with disabilities and minorities and identify where additional resources are needed. Finally, it should be noted that the UNDAF should not be a collection of agency specific mandates. Rather, the UNs medium term plan should be a realistic outline of how the UN intends to Deliver as One in Malawi. Consequentially, the UNDAF will show where the One UN in Malawi can bring its unique strengths to bear in advocacy, capacity development, programming, and cutting edge knowledge, innovation and policy advice, among others, for the achievement of internationally agreed standards and national development goals.

Consultancy to Support the Development of the Spotlight Initiative Country Programme in Malawi

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in the world today. It is a major obstacle to the fulfillment of women’s and girls’ human rights and development and therefore a threat to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. While there have been efforts to address and eliminate Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) and Harmful Practices (HP) in the African region, and improved access to, and exercise of, Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR), progress has remained slow and uneven, and the approaches have been fragmented. It is increasingly clear that the elimination of all forms of SGBV and HP is intrinsically connected to transformation of gender and socio-cultural norms including those related to women’s sexuality and reproduction; and to improving women’s access to comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health information and services.Malawi ranks 145/188 on the Gender Inequality Index, reflecting high levels of inequalities in reproductive health, women’s empowerment and economic activity. Women in Malawi generally fare worse than men on most social and economic indicators including wage equality, political participation, secondary and tertiary education enrolment and literacy. Additionally, violence against women and girls and harmful practices, including early and forced marriages, sexual assaults, including harmful sexual initiation, and domestic violence, remain serious issues. Nearly half of Malawi’s girls marry before turning 18 (47%), and the adolescent birth rate is very high, with 30% of babies born to mothers 19 years or younger. Early sexual initiation with limited access to sexual and reproductive health services, lead to early pregnancies, which prevent girls from finishing school, expose them to HIV/AIDS and is the leading cause of mortality among girls 15-19.In response to this, the European Union and the United Nations are embarking on a new multi-year program, entitled the Spotlight Initiative, focused on eliminating violence against women and girls and harmful practices. The initiative will deploy targeted, large-scale investments in a focused number of countries aimed at achieving significant impact in the lives of women and girls. It comes with the highest level of commitment globally and the initiative will be governed by the UN Deputy Secretary General and the Vice President of the EU Commission. Malawi has been selected as one of eight countries in Africa to receive a share of the global grant of €500 million after submission of a proposal earlier this year. The Initiative is built around six pillars after an extensive global theory of change exercise. The pillars are: 1) Laws and Policies; 2) Institutions; 3) Prevention and Social Norms; 4) Services; 5) Data; and 6) Women’s movement. The country programme will have interventions in all six pillars.The Spotlight team in Malawi, consisting of members from the UN, the EU and the Ministry of Gender has recently, after consultations with key stakeholders, submitted the Country Programme Outline (CPO) to the Spotlight Secretariat globally, outlining the areas of focus under each pillar. In Malawi emphasis has been put on pillar 3 (prevention and social norms) and 4 (services), with the other pillars creating a supporting framework to ensure the delivery of these.Malawi will start the development of the Country Programme on the 23 May, after receipt of the Guidance on the 22 May. As this is a large, multi-stakeholder, multi-year project on a deep-rooted issue in Malawi, a full-time expert is needed to coordinate and guide the team and assist in developing the CP, as well as engage with the EU and other key stakeholder.

Over the years, Malawi has benefitted from the use of traditional conflict management mechanisms and practices in resolving community and national conflicts. Government, Civil Society Organizations and other stakeholders such as traditional leaders have also provided various forms of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. These institutions include the Judiciary, District Labour Offices, the Office of the Ombudsman, Malawi Human Rights Commission, Public Affairs Committee, National Institution for Civic Education, Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace, Multiparty Liaison Committees (MPLCs), etc. While some of these institutions have played a critical role in managing national conflicts, their efforts have been impeded by two main challenges, namely; lack of enabling legislation and absence of a national peace architecture that promotes pro-active rather than reactive conflict management in the country. As a result, their efforts were mostly being ad-hoc and unsustainable.In an effort to achieve more sustainable peace, the Government of Malawi is in the process of establishing a National Peace Architecture (NPA) to serve as the national pillar for peacebuilding, conflict prevention and transformation. The NPA will functionally be represented at national and district levels where these structures will engage in a collaborative manner with other key stakeholders in peacebuilding and transformative dialogues that foster national cohesion.In view of the above, as a first step and a test to roll out the NPA structures nationwide, three pilot District Peace Committees (DPCs) have been established in Karonga, Mangochi, and Kasungu. The lessons learnt from this exercise are the basis on which similar structures will be implemented in other districts across the country. Currently the process is underway to establish DPCs in six other districts including Rumphi, Nkatabay, Mulanje, Machinga, Nsanje, and Salima.The National Peace Policy which was approved by the government in 2017 provides a legal foundation and framework to the establishment of the NPA including DPCs. Enabling legislation for the implementation of the National Peace Policy will be developed and enacted in due course.Apart from DPCs, Women in Peacebuilding Forums and Youth Peace Forums have been established at national and regional levels as informal, civil society-based substructures under the NPA. These forums, in addition to other existing initiatives and structures on conflict prevention and resolution that are run by various other civil society organizations, also support the initiatives of conflict prevention, resolution and transformation on the ground.One of the expected objectives under the National Peace Policy is to conduct research on peace and conflict. For this purpose, the NPA is in the process of establishing a conflict data collection and management mechanism, and DPCs are given the responsibility to collect and compile conflict-related information at district level. The NPA will receive data from each DPC for further data compilation, management and analysis at national level.
