This module is an addition to the ‘I Know Gender’ online learning courses. It allows users to better understand the UNCT-SWAP content and process. The recommendation is to undertake the UNCT SWAP on the
occasion of the CCA/UNSDCF roll-out but it will also work during the UNSDCF implementation timeline. By the end of the course, participants will have a better understanding of what the UNCT-SWAP framework and performance indicators are and how it relates to the work of UN country teams. Participants will also learn how the UNCT-SWAP grew out of key mandates and commitments on gender equality and women’s empowerment across the UN system.
UN personnel who play a lead role in coordinating and monitoring UNCT-SWAP implementation (chair(s) of the Gender Theme Group (GTG) or Inter- Agency Team (IAT), RCO focal points); RCs and UNCT HoAs who oversee UNCT-SWAP implementation and monitoring efforts with support from the GTG, and UN personnel who lead and/or are members of interagency groups governed by the Scorecard Performance Indicators (GTG, OMT, M&E Group, Results Groups, UNCG); all UN personnel members who are interested in learning more about systemwide accountability for gender mainstreaming at the country level.
