The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Regional Office for the Pacific is based in Suva, Fiji. It covers 16 countries and territories in the region, - Australia, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
Around the world, the human rights of millions of migrants, including many involved in large movements or mixed movements, are insufficiently protected or at risk of abuse. Migration is not a new concept and although some people move in search of new economic opportunities and horizons. Others move to escape armed conflict, poverty, food insecurity, persecution, terrorism, or human rights violations and abuses. Still others do so in response to the adverse effects of climate change, natural disasters (some of which may be linked to climate change) or other environmental factors. Many move, for a combination of these reasons.
The Pacific Climate Change Migration and Human Security (PCCMHS) is a regional programme which seeks firstly to support governments and non-government stakeholders to demonstrate strengthened capacity and coordination through a regional response to climate mobility, covering climate change and disaster related migration, displacement and planned relocation; secondly, supporting migrants and affected communities in the pacific to benefit from safe labour migration as a climate change adaptation and sustainable development strategy; and thirdly, contributing to the evidence-base on good practices in responding to climate change and disaster-related migration, displacement, and planned relocation with particular focus on the role of the human security framework.
Under the overall supervision of the Regional Representative of OHCHR - Pacific, and the direct supervision of the Programme focal point- Migration and Climate Change, the successful candidate will be responsible for the development of advocacy tools on the human rights, mobility, and human security in consultation with programme partners and relevant stakeholders.
The objective of this consultancy is to develop awareness raising tools to amplify the rights of pacific migrants moving within and across borders supporting the overall goal of the PCCMHS programme. The tools will support greater understanding of the value of human rights and the human security approach in addressing climate mobility challenges and will aim to raise awareness and guidance on the human rights of pacific islanders moving within and/or across borders.
The successful candidate will utilize the Principles and Guidelines on Migrants in Vulnerable Situations as the base document with specific reference to the OHCHR 7 Key Elements on building human rights-based narratives on migrants and migration, and the Toolbox on migration narrative change to ensure the messages, visuals and communications correspond to that guidance and do no harm. Reference will also be made to other research and publications in relation to climate change, disaster, labour migration and human rights and security to establish migration trends within the Pacific context to develop the comic strip I.e., climate change, disaster, labour migration and human rights and security.
