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.
During Phase 1 (2020- May, 2022) of EU-UN Spotlight Initiative (the Spotlight Initiative), UNDP facilitated unprecedented high-level support to the issue of violence against women and girls through the establishment of the Special Parliamentary Committee on Gender-based Violence (GBV). This high-level support had a nation-wide impact and influenced the national Government and provincial administrations to commit resources to address GBV in 2022 as well make amendments to the PNG Criminale Code to better response to sorcery related violence.
The Mid-Term Assessment of Phase 1 outlined the need for sustainability of activities and coordination mechanisms (e.g. the Civil Society Reference Group and Provincial GBV Secretariats) established through Spotlight and beyond. Therefore, a priority for Phase II will be to strengthen the capacity of implementing partners to prepare budgets and advocate for adequate funding in order to maintain these structures and activities after the programme.
In Phase 2 (June 2022 to December 2023), the Spotlight Initiative in Papua New Guinea will focus on (1) maintaining high- level government ownership of legislative and policy decision making to advance protections for women and girls experiencing violence and to strengthen the capacity of the justice sector to respond to violence against women and girls, and (2) responsive institutional and organisational capacity building at all levels - national, provincial and grassroots - to facilitate a transition from the Spotlight programme to other sources of funding.
UNDP will continue its support by working with DfCDR to fully establish the National GBV Secretariat and Provincial GBV Secretariats in coordination with various sectors, including existing Family and Sexual Violence. The role of the secretariats to ensure there is high-level coordination and accountability by the government to GBV issues as well as ensuring that there is enhanced multi-sectoral GBV prevention and strengthened quality essential services for survivors of gender-based violence, both at the national and provincial levels.
