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.
In Ukraine, UN Women works with the government, parliament, and civil society to advance gender equality through the implementation of the national and international commitments on gender equality and women’s human rights. The work of UN Women Ukraine is guided by the following strategic goals: elimination of violence against women and girls; implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda; and gender-responsive governance. UN Women collaborates closely with the UN Country Team to integrate women’s rights and gender equality in all spheres of the UN’s work in Ukraine.
Russian military aggression on Ukraine launched on 24 February 2022 resulted in an unprecedented loss of life, damage, destruction, and displacement. 18 million people, or half of the population, are projected to become affected, including already 6.7 million people newly internally displaced, most to the Western regions of Ukraine. Of the affected population, 12 million people are expected to need urgent humanitarian assistance.
On 1 March 2022 the United Nations and humanitarian partners launched coordinated emergency appeals for a combined US$1.7 billion to urgently deliver humanitarian support to people in Ukraine and refugees in neighboring countries.
In line with its triple mandate and guided by the IASC Guidelines on Gender in Humanitarian Action, UN Women provides technical and coordination support to key stakeholders on mainstreaming fulfillment of the rights and the needs of women and girls in humanitarian needs assessments and response plans based on data and analysis. UN Women provides analytical findings and recommendations on addressing the humanitarian needs of women and girls based on the findings of the Rapid Gender Analysis and consultations with the National Gender Mechanism and women’s CSOs. UN Women supports the mobilisation of women facing multiple forms of discrimination by strengthening their participation in planning, monitoring, and evaluating humanitarian response and service provision through the engagement of women’s CSOs. UN Women supports the national stakeholders with a gender analysis of humanitarian response and mapping of available services, monitoring of the rights of women and girls in a war context, prevention and response to CRSV, conducting the communication campaign on the needs of women and girls, their access to services, and promotion of women’s leadership in humanitarian response and peace and security efforts.
Under the overall guidance and direction of the International Project Manager, the Project Specialist contributes to the effective coordination of gender mainstreaming of humanitarian assistance in Ukraine, by providing substantive inputs to programme design, formulation, implementation, evaluation, and reporting. S/he guides and facilitates the delivery of UN Women programmes by providing support in strengthening the national capacity for gender-responsive humanitarian assistance (GRHA) and empowering women facing multiple forms of discrimination to participate in humanitarian response at national, regional, and local levels. She/he works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, UN Women Country, Regional and HQ staff, Government officials, Parliament, Ombudsperson, line ministries, pilot regional and local administrations, multi and bi-lateral donors, and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
