Background

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development; human rights; as well as humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

The UN Women Strategy for Moldova 2018-2022 focuses on three main areas where gender equality gaps are still present: 1/strengthening women’s participation in politics and decision making, 2/economic empowerment of women and 3/ending violence against women and girls. To achieve progress under these areas, UN Women works with variety of national and international partners and as part of different national and regional initiatives. Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) is integrated in the current Strategic Note for 2018-2022 under the “Women lead, participate and benefit equally from governance system” Outcome, and is meant to contribute to increased capacities of the public institutions to analyze and improve policies, regulations, and budgets to fulfill gender equality commitments.

Over the past years, through the regional project “Promoting Gender Responsive Polices in South-East Europe and the Republic of Moldova”, UN Women has provided extensive support to national and local stakeholders to strengthen democratic governance and advance women’s rights through initiatives aimed at mainstreaming gender in policy planning and budgeting. As result, gender responsive budgeting has increasingly been recognized as important tool for advancing gender equality in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Republic of North Macedonia and Republic of Moldova.

Through its programmes and projects, UN Women is providing technical assistance to national partners (governmental and non-governmental) in the implementation of existing international and national commitments to women’s rights and gender equality, it facilitates networking and exchange of good practices and advocates for women’s rights and gender equality in all areas of life.

To raise awareness and improve understanding on GRB with the general public, and more specifically with young generations, UN Women will implement a regional campaign “Why Your Money Counts? – The Takeaway Stories”. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness of women and men how the budget spending influences their lives to encourage them to take action that demands accountability. In that respect, UN Women will develop 4 short-documentaries (one per country: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Republic of North Macedonia and Republic of Moldova). The documentaries will showcase positive examples on the impact on the lives of women and girls and inspire them to actively participate and voice their needs.

To the above ends, the UN Women Moldova is seeking to recruit a Local Consultant - Videographer, to support the shooting of one video, in duration of 1.30 min, featuring an impactful human-interest story.

Scope of work
