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 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. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women Philippines is implementing the project Promoting conflict prevention, social cohesion and community resilience in BARMM in the time of COVID-19 jointly with UN partners IOM and UNFPA, and the collaboration of the Resident Coordinator’s Office, with support from the Peacebuilding Fund.
The programme recognizes that COVID-19 is posing a direct challenge to the peace and stability of the BARMM and its surrounding areas by straining efforts to reintegrate former combatants, driving up competition for scarce resources in localities with historical tension, and shifting institutional focus away from building inclusive policies during the formative stage of the region’s new administrative apparatus. To address these challenges, the project will seek to 1) fortify reintegration efforts for former women combatants by empowering them to engage and support peacebuilding, 2) support conflict understanding and prevention by promoting gender-responsive, inclusive, and culturally-sensitive legislation, policies and programmes, and 3) build the resilience of communities in conflict hotspots through collaborative socio-economic activities and inclusive community- based reconciliation mechanisms. At the core of the programme is a focus on gender equality and women’s empowerment. UN Women Philippines will contribute to the project by engaging BARMM actors to promote gender-sensitive and responsive policies and approaches to conflict prevention, and will support women in conflict hostpots by building socio-economic resilience, increasing participation in conflict mediation, and ensuring community safety mechanisms are gender responsive.
To support the implementation of the programme, UN Women seeks a Programme Assistant to work with and provides support to the members of the Programme Team in the development and implementation of the programme Promoting conflict prevention, social cohesion and community resilience in BARMM in the time of COVID-19. The Programme Assistant will provide support and assistance to the team to ensure effective programme implementation in line with UN Women rules and regulations and in coordination with IOM and UNFPA.
Under the guidance and supervision of the Programme Officer, the Programme Assistant supports the programme operations by performing a variety of standard administrative processes ensuring high quality and accuracy of work. The Administrative Assistant promotes a client, quality and results-oriented approach.
