UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.
UNDP – Legal Empowerment Assistance for the Disadvantaged (LEAD) Project has been operational in Indonesia since August 2007 in the province of North Maluku and April 2008 in the provinces of Central Sulawesi and Southeast Sulawesi. To date LEAD has assisted 23 civil society organizations in addressing legal empowerment issues organised into four main themes: Land & Natural Resources, Gender, Local Governance and Legal services.
The gender component of LEAD Project focuses on enhancing the capacity of CSOs, communities and the media to prevent and address gender based violence (GBV). In addition to specific gender-related activities, LEAD has committed to mainstreaming gender concerns in all grant making activities and strategic initiatives.
The aim of the gender audit is to assess the extent to which gender has been mainstreamed within LEAD Project. The audit will assess LEAD Project’s existing capacity, resources, and strategies for gender mainstreaming, and will provide guidance to LEAD for effective gender mainstreaming by providing practical recommendations as well as an Action Plan.
Since this is the first gender audit of LEAD Project, findings and recommendations from the audit are expected to provide valuable information not only to the LEAD Project Management Unit (PMU) but also to LEAD counterparts, donors and UNDP Governance Unit.
