The ILO support for Somalia is articulated in the Draft Somalia Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP 2017-2019), which is aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP 2017-2019). As part of the implementation of the NDP (2017-2019) and to contribute towards achievement of the goal of decent work for all women and men, and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the ILO will implement a project, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), in the Somali region with two thematic focuses: renewable energy and women’s economic empowerment.
This project seeks to address two complementary challenges to Somalia’s development: barriers to women’s full economic empowerment; and lack of access to affordable, renewably-sourced energy. Expanding access to energy in the country has the potential to increase the productivity and competitiveness of Somali women and men run/owned businesses, contribute to alleviating poverty (both of which could lead to increased investment), improve health and education outcomes, and bolster security.
Women’s Economic Empowerment gives women the independence, confidence, and ability to transform their lives. There is a direct correlation between improvements in health, education, peace, and security and the eventual success of women entrepreneurs to catalyse change within their regions, clans, towns, and families. Developing women’s economic empowerment and renewable energy is critical in building wealth, creating jobs, and unleashing the potential for innovation that attracts investment and helps every nation develop.
Under the overall supervision of the Country Director for CO-Addis Ababa, the Monitoring and Evaluation Assistant will directly report to the project Technical Officer in charge of the PPDP project.
Monitoring and Evaluation Assistant will work in close collaboration with all colleagues within the ILO Somalia programme team as well as with M&E staff within the ILO CO-Addis Ababa Office, Regional Office and colleagues at ILO Headquarters and representatives from government, private sector, non-government and civil society organizations.
