UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality for women as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.
As recognized by both global and ASEAN commitments, the impacts of disasters are not gender neutral, with women, children, the elderly, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups being among the most impacted. Over the past decade, Post-Disaster Needs Assessments from the region have shown that these impacts on women and girls are multi-dimensional, spanning impacts on livelihoods to education to health to unequal access to services and relief, calling for a multi-sectoral approach to systematically integrate such gender and protection considerations into disaster management. Furthermore, research led by the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM) with the IFRC has highlighted the urgency of acting to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in disasters, while research led by the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) has pointed to both existing efforts and key gaps in not only addressing women’s vulnerabilities, but also catalyzing their roles as agents of change in disaster management in the region.
The programme “Strengthening Gender-Responsive Disaster Management in ASEAN,” implemented by UN Women in close collaboration with the ASEAN Secretariat aims to ensure that key relevant ASEAN sectoral bodies are supported with evidence based policy research and relevant technical capacity to integrate gender and protection framework to mitigate and prevent sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). More specifically it aims to ensure that a protection (including SGBV and child protection), gender and inclusion lens is integrated in the design and implementation of the new ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) Work Programme 2021-2025.
To ensure effective programme management and implementation, UN Women ROAP seeks to hire a consultant to provide technical support to final result reporting based on ECHO reporting requirements and on the results-based management (RBM) principle of the UN Women.
