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 between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
ASEAN and South Asian continues are the most prone to the impacts of disasters, with 8 of 10 deadliest disasters worldwide in 2018 occurring in the Asia-Pacific region. The recently published 6th AR shows that unless drastic measures are adopted by the nations immediately the world is going to be faced with the irreversible crisis of going beyond increased temperature of 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial era. While disaster risk profiles of individual countries in the region are diverse, hydrological and meteorological disasters account for the majority of recent disasters recorded. While all people are affected by disasters and conflicts, women and girls are disproportionately impacted due to gender inequalities. Age and disability are additional confounding factors. Post Disaster Needs Assessments and gender analyses of recent humanitarian crises in the region, including in the Philippines and Indonesia, continue to highlight the role of disasters in exacerbating inequalities. As IFRC research with the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management has shown, risks of SGBV are exacerbated in disaster situations, and the myriad actors engaged in disaster management are not adequately coordinating to reduce these risks. Further gendered impacts include increased burdens of unpaid care work, increased risks of forced, early, and child marriage, disproportionate loss of livelihoods, and adverse impacts on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Moreover, women are seldom getting into leadership positions in climate negotiations and actions.
Under such circumstances and based on UN legislative mandates and the UNW Strategic Plan, the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is tasked with providing strategic programme development, policy / technical advisory services to CO and MCO on climate change and DRR. Towards that end ROAP undertakes or coordinates regional research and data analysis; advises on norms, policies and strategies for achieving the internationally and regionally agreed CC and DRR goals related to gender equality and women’s empowerment issues. It acts as a knowledge hub at the regional level, collecting evidence on progress and emerging issues and sharing knowledge on innovative approaches and lessons learned in this field.
So, UN Women regional office seeks hire a Programme Analyst to support programme development, coordination, and knowledge management functions for the Climate Change portfolio, including leading the development of the EmPower II project, which is continuation of a joint regional programme of UN Women and UNEP, supported by government of Sweden.
