KEY INFORMATION
Job Title: Gaza Safeguarding Consultant
Sector: Governance and Economic Reform
Position Type: Consultancy
Duration/Level of Effort: 15 working days over four months (August 2022 to February 2023)
Position Location: Gaza (The Occupied Palestinian Territories)
Reports to: GESI Lead
   
BACKGROUND
The Trade Facilitation and Customs Support programme (Tasdeer) is a three-year programme funded by  UK Aid from the British Government and implemented by a consortium led by Cowater International.

The objective of the Tasdeer programme is to improve the Palestinian private sector’s competitiveness and the PA’s capacity in the fields of trade, customs and import policy regulation and administration. The Tasdeer programme aims to increase sustainable private sector-led economic growth and job creation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and the PA’s fiscal sustainability while ensuring equitable access to increased trade and improved institutional capacity. Gender Equality and Social Inclusion is a main tool and objective for Tasdeer to ensure the benefits of the programme are equally accessed by the diverse groups of men and women in the supply chain.

Tasdeer will increase employment of women and people with disabilities (PwDs) in garment and textile factories in the Gaza Strip by placing women in factories, providing on-the-job training, and making factories accessible to women and PwDs. 

Women and girls in Palestine face multiple layers of discrimination, abuse and violence. According to a 2011 Violence Survey of the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS), an average of 37% of women are victims of GBV in Palestine; in the Gaza Strip, this percentage increases to 51%. The violence was due to multiple levels of discrimination including social norms, power relations and occupation. 

In 2019 Violence Survey conducted by PCBS, it was found that 59.3% of currently married or ever married women (age 15 - 64 years) in Palestine were victims (at least once) of violence by their intimate partners. Violence includes a range of sexually, psychologically, and physically coercive acts. Women also experience violence, abuse and harassment in their workstations as both employees and labourers. 

Safeguarding is vital to protect women and children from all types of violence, abuse and harassment. Weak safeguarding systems are linked to low gender equality and decreased participation of women in all sectors. .
