to come up with a report that will highlight the training needs articulated by women in decision making positions in the civil service sector of Cambodia. The report, among other things, will include a synthesis

The Consultant will be responsible for submitting the highlights of the report to the MOCS and UN Women. S/he will facilitate discussions on the report and incorporate the recommendations of the participants in
the final version of the report.
In case determined as necessary by MOCS and UN Women, the Consultant will conduct a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with participants who will be jointly determined by MOCS and UN Women in order to
validate, enrich and refine the analysis of the TNA. The results of this process will be incorporated by the Consultant into the final TNA report.

Based on the final TNA report, the Consultant will draft an annotated course design on Women’s Leadership and Gender Responsive Policy and Decision Making. This will be submitted to UN Women and MOCS who
will review and make recommendations for consideration by the Consultant in refining the draft.
Once the design has been finalized, the Consultant will develop the instructional materials and methodologies, along with a concept note that will provide guidance to UN Women and MOCS on the
