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 Commission is developing a new Strategic Plan (2018 to 2022) which is taking the electoral cycle approach to implementing election activities focusing on the Pre, During and Post elections. In view of the new strategic plan, the electoral cycle philosophy and the enactment of the Access to Information Act, the Commission is planning to review its communication strategy to develop a new one that will run from April 2018 to March 2022 to ensure strategic direction to its communication activities especially in preparation for the 2019 Tripartite Elections.The new communication strategy will also provide strategic direction on how the Commission will respond to requests for information in view of the Access to Information Act which was passed by Malawi Parliament on 14th December, 2016 and assented to by the State President on 15th February, 2017.The Commission, therefore, seeks to engage ONE local consultant who will work with the Commissioners and staff to review and develop a new communication strategy that will guide in the implementation of activities with a focus on the above-mentioned areas. 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. The Project is structured around four outputs: (1) The MEC is trusted by the public and political parties as an impartial entity possessing the capacity to administer and manage elections in accordance with regional and international obligations; (2) Women’s political empowerment throughout the electoral cycle is strengthened; (3) Enhanced ability of key stakeholders, including political parties, to contribute to orderly and inclusive elections; and (4) Effective and efficient management, partnership formation and monitoring and evaluation of the Project.

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is a body corporate created under Section 75 of the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi to administer, supervise and direct the conduct of 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 Commission has the constitutional mandate to determine electoral petitions and complaints related to the conduct of any election. It also has a legislative mandate to resolve complaints at every stage of the electoral process i.e. complaints relating to registration of voters, nomination process, campaign process and polling. In addition, before determination of the national result of an election, the Commission is required by law to decide on matters that are subject to any complaint. The legislative framework gives the Commission some quasi-juridical powers to determine election petitions and complaints subject to the right of appeal to the formal courts and this has been confirmed through judicial pronouncements both in the High Court and Supreme Court of Malawi. Despite having this mandate, the Commission does not have formal procedural guidelines to assist it in exercising its mandate as an electoral complaint handling tribunal.To comprehensively fulfil its mandate, the Commission, therefore, seeks to engage an Individual Consultant who will work with the Legal Directorate and other relevant MEC Staff members to develop guidelines and procedures for receipt, recording, investigation, resolving and communicating determinations of complaints at every stage of the electoral process i.e. registration, nomination, campaign, polling, and before the determination of results. The guidelines will also provide the relevant timelines of the complaints’ handling process.This activity will be implemented under the Malawi Electoral Cycle Support (MECS) Programme 2017-2019 which is a basket fund that has pooled 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. The Project is structured around four outputs:(1) The MEC is trusted by the public and political parties as an impartial entity possessing the capacity to administer and manage elections in accordance with regional and international obligations and standards; (2) Strengthened women’s political empowerment throughout the electoral cycle.; (3) Enhanced ability of key stakeholders, including political parties, to contribute to orderly and inclusive elections; and (4) Effective and efficient management, partnership formation and monitoring and evaluation of the Project.

The era of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) came to an end in 2015, and the newSustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed by 193 member countries of the United Nations in New York on 25th September 2015, took over as a new global sustainable development agenda to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. In total, there are 17 SDGs, also known as the Agenda 2030. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.The Agenda 2030 is unique in that it calls for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income. It recognizes that ending poverty must go together with a plan that builds economic growth andaddresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while addressing climate change and environmental protection. It also covers issues such as inequality, infrastructure, energy, consumption, biodiversity, oceans and industrialization. This new universal agenda requires an integrated approach to sustainable development and collective action, at all levels, to address the challenges of our time, with an overarching imperative of ‘leaving no one behind’ and addressing inequalities and discrimination as the central defining feature.

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..

NRIS National Consultant

Registration and Identification systems worldwide serve the purpose of providing up-to-date and reliable information for social-economic planning, promotion of fundamental rights, good governance and integrity of its citizens and resident foreigners through positive identification.In Malawi, the National Registration Bureau (NRB)-a department in the Ministry of Home Affairs and Internal Security-was established in line with the National Registration Act of 2010, with the legal mandate to facilitate, manage and coordinate the implementation of a National Registration and Identification System (NRIS). This involves issuing ICAO complaint ID cards to aged 16 and above, amongst others; registering the occurrence and characteristics of vital events such as deaths, births and marriages and issuing identity cards to bonafide Malawians and eligible residents. Despite its establishment NRB has not been able to fulfil its mandate, for several reasons, such as lack of an appropriate structure, technical skills assessment to employ appropriate human resources for the job at hand, limited staff, among others.To support NRB fulfil this task, an NRIS project was designed and negotiated with government and development partners. The expected results of the project are: design, establish and manage the necessary systems, infrastructure and equipment for the NRIS; supervise the mass registration for all eligible Malawians (an estimated 9 million) within the country in 2017; transition the system to a continuous registration model in 2018 and to develop the capacity and systems of NRB to maintain and operate the system, provide an interface to other public and private sector systems that allow for appropriate data sharing within a legal framework that complies with international principles and standards for the right to privacy and data protection; and to ensure the effective management of the project.To date UNDP Malawi has provided technical support to the National Registration Bureau (NRB) of Malawi, in the elaboration of the National Registration and Identification System (NRIS) concept and the design and development of critical software and operational procedures, and directly implemented the registration of approximately 9 million Malawians, including issuing biometrically secure ID cards.Following the above-mentioned activities, UNDP will be providing preparatory institutional and capacity development support that will see NRB fully capacitated to manage and administer continuous registration processes. In light of this, it is critical that a comprehensive and participatory technical and organizational capacity assessment is undertaken to inform any capacity development work that is to be done, in support of NRB’s transition to continuous registration.It is against this background that UNDP is inviting proposals from suitably qualified individual consultants for consultancy services to support the NRIS project in the participatory technical and organisational capacity assessment of the NRB.

National Consultant Services for Development of Finance Assessment

Significant changes are taking place in the development finance landscape worldwide. Developing countries like Malawi are going through a transition in terms of mobilizing and managing resources - both domestic and external as well as public and private - to finance their development plans and aspirations.The Third International Conference on Financing for Development, held in Addis Ababa in July 2015, opened the discussions on how to mobilise the unprecedented amounts of financial resources that will be required to achieve the SDGs. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda assumes that countries will use their own national development strategies and plans to respond to the SDGs and calls for the adoption of Integrated National Financing Frameworks (INFFs). In this connection, Malawi plans to undertake a Development Finance Assessment (DFA), under the leadership of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development which will consider the links between finance and national development priorities and the scope for stronger alignment of finance with MGDS III and the SDGs moving forward. The assessment will help provide recommendations for a road map for establishing an Integrated National Financing Framework.

Consultancy for Administrative and Logistical Support for Organization of the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) Meeting

Malawi Country Office - MALAWI | Published August 29, 2017  -  Deadline September 14, 2017
cpvs

The African Regional Intellectual Property Organization (ARIPO) was established in 1976, largely motivated by the need to pool resources and to avoid duplication of financial and human resources. Another key objective was to promote harmonization and development of intellectual property laws appropriate to the needs of its members and the region. The Harare Protocol on Patents and Industrial Designs, which entered into force in 1984, is the governing instrument on the administration and management of patents for ARIPO. At present, 18 Sub-Saharan African countries are party to the Harare Protocol. Of these six are developing countries while the rest are least developed countries (LDCs). Of the LDCs, 4 are not members of the WTO. Given ARIPO’s status as a regional patent office, successful use of the TRIPS flexibilities hinges considerably on the practices of ARIPO. A critical question is whether ARIPO’s patent filing and grant practices are coherent with, and enable the achievement of, the objectives of the above-mentioned instruments, and public health and development considerations. Recent research suggests “current operations of the ARIPO does not facilitate full use of TRIPS flexibilities and instead erects patent barriers to the importation and local production of affordable medicines.”A three-day regional Conference is proposed in November 2017 in Lilongwe, Malawi, to discuss recent global developments affecting intellectual property law and policy, and undertake an assessment of the Harare Protocol’s relevance and effectiveness in addressing the needs of member states, with reference to the need for integrating public health perspectives and the special needs of LDCs. The meeting has been proposed to be convened in Malawi for a few reasons:There has been political commitment from His Excellency President Mutharika in the past on issues of intellectual property and public health including his role in championing the extension of the WTO Waiver for LDCs at the 2015 General Assembly;The President’s Chief Economic Advisor Dr. Collins Magalasi participated in the Johannesburg Dialogue of the High-Level Panel on Access to Medicines in March 2016 and specifically raised ARIPO as a matter of concern for Malawi;Malawi is currently reforming its intellectual property legislation; andThere is interest and capacity within the UN in Malawi to promote a treatment access agenda.The Conference will therefore be hosted by the Malawi Government under the leadership of President Arthur Peter Mutharika.Specifically, there are three priority areas that warrant discussion and deliberation; namely (1) the implementation and strategic use of the LDCs’ transition periods; (2) the effective integration of public health perspectives and concerns into the ARIPO legal instruments, as well as administration and practices; and (3) the need for increased information and transparency in the patent administration and management system to optimize the benefits of the system.

Formulation of a National Monitoring and Evaluation Policy

Malawi Country Office - MALAWI | Published August 22, 2017  -  Deadline September 6, 2017

Background:Over the years, the Government of Malawi with support of various partners embarked on a programme to develop a “whole of government” M&E system seeking to develop capacities of central government offices, line ministries, city and district councils in evidence-based decision making. Currently, the National Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Master Plan guides the process and it also provides the framework for monitoring development policies and programs in the country. The Master Plan has five components, namely: Monitoring of National Development Strategy (NDS) implementation; Monitoring of Development Outcomes; Impact assessment and policy analysis; Development Monitoring Information System (DMIS); and Communication and Advocacy.

Sector submissions were the basis for the broader annual review of the MGDS. In 2008 Government created 16 Sector Working Group to among other activities provide a platform for inclusive monitoring of sectoral policies, strategies and programmes.The National Statistical Office (NSO) is the agency tasked with providing high quality, timely and independent statistical information.
