PURPOSE OF THIS CONTRACT

Oxfam’s Mekong Regional Water Governance Program identifies the need for a lead facilitator to provide facilitation and management oversight for the convening of the Women and River Congress (WRC) that is planned to take place in May 2024. The assignment is proposed for a period of 25-30 working days that will be spread over 6 months from January to June 2024.  The lead facilitator will be working closely with Mekong Regional Water Governance Program Manager, the WRC Steering Committee in the convening of the Congress for this work.

 

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

Oxfam’s Regional Water Governance Program in Asia has multiple projects that contribute to sustainable development of water resources in key river basins, in South Asia, Mekong and the Salween basins. The Mekong Regional Water Governance Program aims to have more inclusive, equitable water governance that reduces the impact of climate change and increases social accountability to citizens in the Greater Mekong Basin. The program envisions that communities living along the Mekong and Salween River basins are able to realise their right to sustainable livelihoods. Currently, there are multiple regional projects implementing under the program, including:

  • Mekong Inclusion Project phase 2 (June 2020-June 2024) with possible extension to April 2025
  • Strengthening Climate Resilience in the Mekong Sub-region (March 2022-June 2025)
  • Water Governance Project

These projects aim to empower communities, promote inclusive governance, and strengthen resilience to climate change in the Mekong region through the active involvement of marginalized groups, civil society, and diverse stakeholders.

ABOUT THE WOMEN AND RIVER CONGRESS

The Asia Women and River Congress (WRC) is a significant event that aims to address the gender inequalities and social exclusion in water resource management and promote the active participation of women in decision-making processes. The first global Women and River Congress, held in March 2019, were co-convened by International Rivers, Oxfam, and its partners in Nagarkot, Nepal. The event brought together close to 100 women from more than 30 countries to celebrate the fundamental role women play in defending and stewarding freshwater resources, as well as spur collective action to challenge the deep-rooted, gender inequalities that women face in safeguarding rives and river ecosystems. The congress resulted in a roadmap for action, focusing on three key areas[1]: (i) Generating Knowledge and Influencing; (ii) Strengthening the Movement and Collaboration for Change via the Women and Rivers Accelerator program (for women in Asia and Africa)[2]; (iii) Framing the Narrative and Telling Our Stories.
