Terms of reference Senior Non-Key Expert
Title: Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment in the Workplace – Development and Role out of training programme for Ministry of Labour and Social Security
1. Introduction and background
Funded by the European Union, the Natwampane Programme aims to reduce levels of Gender-based Violence (GBV) in Luapula and Northern Provinces. Although the focus is on these two provinces, the programme also has a national focus, supporting Gender Division in policy and system building and strengthening coordination within the provinces as well as at the national level.
The Natwampane Programme is implemented by 5 partners – Norwegian Church Aid, BBC Media Action, Childline / Lifeline, World Vision and GIZ. These five partners have independent contracts with the European Union and specific objectives and deliverables. However, when combined, the objectives and deliverables add up to a comprehensive, multi-sectoral GBV programme, that focuses on prevention and response, as well as raising awareness of community members on the laws of Zambia as they relate to GBV and to encourage survivors and at-risk women and girls, and potentially men and boys, to report and seek help.
The following terms of reference fall within the component of the programme implemented by GIZ.
