The world is facing a child hunger and malnutrition crisis like no other.

The COVID-19 pandemic, conflicts, and climate change are creating the conditions for severe food insecurity, now exacerbated by the war in Ukraine. As is always the case, none of this is the responsibility of children and yet, they pay the highest price.

Ahead of the summit, UNICEF is calling for urgent funds.

Leave no one behind: Spotlight Initiative a boon to women with disabilities

Chipinge, Zimbabwe – Angeline Mlambo, 41, from Chipinge rural district says her life turned around for better when the joint EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls programme (Spotlight Initiative) began work in her village.

As a person with a disability, Angeline has survived abuse and discrimination by her own close family members including her husband.

Angeline says, “My husband would constantly insult me. He would withhold money from me even if I needed it to buy food for the household; he would insist on doing it himself.”

“My husband’s family considered me useless because I was not able to work with my hands to make a living for myself like other women do – like washing clothes and farming,” says Angeline while pointing towards her right hand, which has been partially paralyzed since birth.

Angeline’s experience is sadly not a rare occurrence for women with disabilities in Zimbabwe and across the world. According to the World Bank’s brief on Violence Against Women and Girls with Disabilities published in December 2019, girls and women with disabilities face up to 10 times more violence than women and girls without disabilities.

Women with disabilities are 2 to 4 times more likely to experience intimate partner violence. These factors can be attributed to them being targeted by perpetrators because of limited physical mobility or means of communication.

Disability rights are human rights

When Leonard Cheshire Disability Zimbabwe (LCDZ) introduced awareness programmes in Chipinge, Angeline’s situation began to change. “Through LCDZ, I learnt that I could take care of myself and be independent even as a woman with a disability. I have also learnt about my rights and how the law protects people like me. I now feel empowered to overcome the challenges I face, and I know where to report abuse and receive assistance,” said Angeline.

Under the Spotlight Initiative, UNDP has partnered with LCDZ to provide women and girls with a platform to learn about their rights and include them in law and policy making processes.

Project Officer of LCDZ, Ms. Isabel Chipunza said, “Meaningful participation of women and girls with disabilities in political and public life has been a core principle of LCDZ under Spotlight Initiative. Capacitating women and girls with disabilities to participate in national and subnational decision-making processes and strengthening the capacity of local leadership and community cadres to support this vulnerable group will go a long way in addressing their unique challenges and building a more inclusive society.”

Building women’s economic empowerment in communities

LCDZ has also provided women and girls with disabilities in Chipinge with capital to start their own projects to foster economic empowerment. These projects, including agriculture and poultry farming, have been essential in giving women in this community a sense of ownership, and a means to provide for their families without overdependence on their male partners.

“With the support of LCDZ, I learnt that being a person with a disability does not prevent me from living life like able bodied persons. I am now able to cultivate my own garden. Through the borrowing and lending project, I was able to buy Guineafowl eggs, and now I have started my own project, with over 100 Guineafowls that I can sell to generate income, provide food for my family, and take my children to school,” says Angeline with pride beaming from her eyes.

UN support to women and girls with disabilities in Zimbabwe

There are many challenges and discriminatory practices that inhibit the meaningful participation of women and girls with disabilities in decision making and development processes. As one of the six UN Agencies implementing the European Union (EU) funded Spotlight Initiative in Zimbabwe, UNDP, in partnership with LCDZ, continues to support women and girls with disabilities in this area, and is also providing them with access to economic empowerment opportunities.

Head of Governance, and Spotlight Initiative Technical Focal Point at UNDP, Ms. Tafadzwa Muvingi said, “Within Spotlight Initiative, the UN has successfully championed transformative initiatives which have led to increased participation of women and girls with disabilities in development and decision-making processes, as well as the gender-based violence response in Zimbabwe.”

Ms. Muvingi added, “Empowerment of women and girls with disabilities in this regard is central to enhancing their voice and agency and addressing the barriers they face in accessing sexual and gender-based violence related services and participating in legislative processes.”

To date, UNDP has trained over 610 women and girls with disabilities on human rights, access to justice and sexual and gender-based violence services. In addition, over 1,200 women and girls and representative of Organizations for Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) have been supported to participate in public consultations on the National Budget, Disability Bill and Policy, Constitutional Amendment Bill, principles for the Gender Equality and Sexual Harassment Bills, and age of consent to accessing reproductive healthcare services, to mention a few.

Message to women and girls with disabilities

Asked what message she would like to share with other women and girls with disabilities, Angeline said, “Firstly, accept who you are and realize you are a human being like everyone else. Secondly, do not look down on yourself because of your disability. You are more than capable, and I encourage you to work for yourself and be able to sustain your own livelihood.”

About Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls

Happy International Day of Yoga

In Zimbabwe, Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) account for 31% of morbidity according to findings of the World Health Organization. The high burden of NCDs is attributed to a change in population lifestyles which include physical inactivity because of the changing nature of work, alcohol, smoking and substance abuse particularly among the youth, traffic accidents, and pollution. Adopting yoga can assist in tackling NCDs.

Zimbabwe commemorates World Refugee Day in Tongogara Refugee Camp

20 June 2022, Tongogara Refugee Camp, Manicaland, Zimbabwe: Today is World Refugee Day, a day to honour the courage, strength, and contributions of millions of people worldwide who have been forced to flee their homes due to violence, war or persecution. It's a day to remember that with help from hosting communities and neighbours, people can rebuild their lives and networks and even thrive.

This year's theme is "Everyone has the right to asylum. Whoever they are. Wherever they come from. Whenever they need it."

In Zimbabwe, World Refugee Day celebrations took place in Tongogara Refugee Camp in Manicaland Province. UNHCR, in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, and partners, organized the commemoration in the camp with refugees and asylum-seekers. Together they remembered the importance of welcoming newcomers into their communities. Those forced to flee bring their cultures, unique experiences, and hope – all of which make any community stronger and more vibrant.

The celebrations in the refugee camp included a wide range of entertainment activities organized by refugees and asylum-seekers, from performances of traditional dance groups to refugee children reading poems and singing the national anthem.

The Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare donated food hampers containing necessities for an average family to all residents in the refugee camp.

The Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Professor Paul Mavima, said, "the Government is alive to its international obligation to receive and protect refugees and asylum seekers. The need to empower persons of concern in terms of livelihoods need not be over emphasized. The Government of Zimbabwe will continue to avail arable land for the expansion of the irrigation scheme in Tongogara to benefit refugees and the host community to ensure peaceful co-existence."

The attendees at the celebration in Tongogara visited some projects in the camp supporting refugees and the host community's self-reliance, namely the irrigation scheme, the hydroponics project, the new school building for children with disabilities, and an organization led by young refugees dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship among youths.

The UNHCR Representative in Zimbabwe, Abdoulaye Barry, stated that "it is our collective responsibility to ensure that people have access to refuge. But our responsibility does not end there. Once they are out of harm's way, people who have been forced to leave their homes and almost everything else behind need a chance to rebuild."

During the celebrations, UNHCR and UNDP inaugurated the new solar panels installed in UNHCR's field office in Tongogara Refugee Camp, with the support of the Green Energy Team (GET) of UNDP's Information & Technology Management (ITM).

The key driving factor for UNHCR to install a solar photovoltaic panel solution is to cover critical load while simultaneously reducing CO2 emissions and promoting sustainable development in the country. This clean energy solution is not dependent on generator fuel, covers 99% of critical loads of UNHCR's, Government's and partner's offices in Tongogara Refugee Camp and allows for estimated yearly savings of 8.530 kg of CO2.

The UNDP Resident Representative in Zimbabwe, Mia Seppo, who participated in the inauguration and the celebrations in the refugee camp, pointed out that "this smart facility with UNHCR shows UNDP's commitment to greening its operations. We recognize that while we partner with the Government on environmental policy and sustainability projects, we also need to walk the talk," said Seppo.

The Government of Zimbabwe hosts over 22,600 refugees and asylum-seekers. Most of them reside at Tongogara Refugee Camp. Approximately 74% of the refugees and asylum-seekers registered by UNHCR are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, while 11% come from Mozambique, 6% from Burundi, 5% from Rwanda, and 4% from other nationalities.

Globally, the number of people forced to flee conflict, violence, human rights violations, and persecution has now crossed the staggering milestone of 100 million for the first time on record, propelled by the war in Ukraine and other deadly conflicts. In addition, there is renewed violence in places where protracted crises continue, such as Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Myanmar, Nigeria, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

UNHCR's mandate is to safeguard the rights and well-being of people forced to flee. Together with partners and communities, we work to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country. We also strive to secure lasting solutions.

UN Results Report | 2021

Government – UN validate development results, set priorities for 2022 and beyond

15 June 2022, Harare – today senior representatives from Government and the United Nations together with development partners, donors, civil society, and NGOs validated development results achieved in 2021 under the 2016-2021 Zimbabwe UN Development Assistance Framework (ZUNDAF) and agreed on priorities for 2022 and beyond under the new five year, 2022-2026 Zimbabwe UN Sustainable Development Cooperation (ZUNSDCF).

The ZUNSDCF joint senior steering committee meeting was co-chaired by the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr. Misheck JM Sibanda and the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator Mr Edward Kallon.

Noting the overarching principle of “leaving no one and no place behind” of the agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development that Government and UN adopted, Chief Secretary to President and Cabinet Dr Misheck J M Sibanda said, “This shared commitment is focusing on delivering concrete development results that ensure inclusive participation and reaching the people who historically and typically are left the furthest behind on the socio-economic development landscape.” “Our thrust as the Government, UN and partners to work together to accelerate impactful sustainable development during the Decade of Action as we emerge stronger and recover better from the COVID 19 pandemic,” said Dr Sibanda.

The ZUNSDCF is the strategic instrument for planning and implementation of the UN supported development programmes and projects in the country. Given the ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the urgency of its implementation timeline, the ZUNSDCF firmly guides the entire programme cycle, comprising planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation as well as reporting on collective UN support in the developmental process.

The ZUNSDCF, an agreement between the UN and the Government of Zimbabwe, also determines and reflects on the UN development system’s contributions to the country and shapes the configuration of UN support required inside and outside the country.

Noting the generous support of the donor community and their partnerships with the UN that facilitated the delivery of development projects and programmes worth USD523 million in 2021, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Zimbabwe Mr Edward Kallon said, “The UN, we collectively remain committed to achieving the aspirations of the Cooperation Framework through the deployment of human, technical and financial resources in the most effective and efficient manner towards delivering on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the transformative recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Development partners validated the 2021 UN supported development programmes and projects worth USD 523 million under the just ended 2016-2021 ZUNDAF programme cycle.

The participants also adopted development priorities for 2022 and beyond that were identified as key programmes and projects in keeping focus on the interventions that will contribute to the realization of the ZUNSDCF in ending poverty, transforming the lives of all citizens, and protecting the environment.

The priority areas agreed-to include socio-economic recovery from COVID-19 pandemic, climate action and resilience building and programmes focusing on youth, women, persons with disability, indigenous population, key populations, migrants, and other population of concern under the principle of leaving no one behind.

Through jointly developing the 2022 Joint Work Plan under the ZUNSDCF, the Government, UN, and partners seek to operationalize the people, planet, prosperity, and peace pillars of the Cooperation Framework, in a collaborative manner.
