Background

I. Background

 

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 between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

 

Placing women's rights at the center 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. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

 

To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s Flagship Programme Initiative, “Making Every Woman and Girl Count (Women Count)” aims to affect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment.

 

In addition, the Asia-Pacific regional component of the Women Count Programme envisions a multi-year and multi-country programme of work with particular focus on implementing and supporting regional and country-specific activities in Asia and the Pacific. This includes work in the three inter-related key areas:

 

  • effective monitoring of the SDGs;
  • Increasing the quality, comparability and regularity of gender statistics to address national data gaps and meet reporting commitments under the SDGs; and
  • Ensuring that gender statistics are accessible to users in governments, civil society, academia and the private sector, to strengthen adequate demand for their production.

 

Cognizant to the aim of pursuing shared capacity development objectives through exchanges of knowledge, skills, resources and technical know-how and with the aim to further improve the generation, dissemination and utilization of gender statistics, the Philippines, through the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), will collaborate with the UN Women under the Women Count Programme.  One of the components of the project is to develop materials that may contribute in the development of gender statistics in other countries by learning on the best practice and experiences of the Philippines on gender statistics.  These materials will complement the content of the Asia-Pacific Training Curriculum on gender statistics.

 

The Gender Consultant reports to the Regional Gender Statistics Specialist, Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) and to the Project Manager of PSA. He/she will provide technical assistance and guidance to PSA in the development of the online materials featuring the documentation of Philippines’ best practices and experiences on gender statistics. Furthermore, he/she will help the Project Team in conceptualizing/organizing the available references to develop the online materials on gender statistics.
