UN Women is the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. UN Women is dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.
All human development and human rights issues have gender dimensions. UN Women focuses on priority areas that are fundamental to women’s equality, and that can unlock progress across the board. Five focus areas include violence against women, economic empowerment, leadership and participation, peace and security and national planning and budgeting
UN Women’s India Country Office, based in New Delhi, India, works to advance gender equality, end violence against women and bring women’s rights to bear on local governance and decision making and strengthen its work on the neglected issue of sexual violence and other forms of violence in public spaces. It works on advancing gender responsive planning & budgeting to integrate gender perspectives in policies and programs across sectors and levels of governance to close gender gaps. To create a catalyst for policy attention, public awareness and innovative responses, UN Women launched a new flagship initiative, the Global Programme on Safe Cities Free of Violence against Women and Girls. The programme aims to develop the first proven model on how to prevent and reduce sexual violence and harassment in public spaces for eventual adaptation by local authorities and other decision-makers worldwide, in partnership with grassroots women’s organizations and community groups.
This model is intended to be capable of upscaling in many local contexts—furthering women’s empowerment and gender equality, while enhancing the quality of city life for all. Focusing on slum areas, impoverished neighbourhoods and excluded groups, these efforts work to empower women and their communities in diverse settings in five cities: Cairo (Egypt), Kigali (Rwanda), New Delhi (India), Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea) and Quito (Ecuador).
With an emphasis on creating an overarching strategy to create safer cities for women and girls, the Safe Cities Delhi project focuses on some of the following - needed policy and legislative reforms; urban planning and design of public spaces; civic awareness; improvements in public transport and policing; provision and maintenance of public infrastructure and services; and expanding access by survivors to legal assistance, justice, and other supports.
UN Women works with the Delhi Government and civil society partners on the program, it provides technical support to the Department for Women and Child Development, Government of NCT of Delhi. In connection with the above, UN Women will be placing an embedded technical expert on ending violence against women and girls at the DWCD to support the Department to promote women and girls’ right to safe and equal space: private, public, worksites and cyberspaces.
In addition to the above, UN Women is currently implementing a technical assistance project on advancing gender responsive budgeting in select states. The technical expert will be required to provide requisite support to the project to strengthen institutional mechanisms and government capacities on gender budgeting.
The Technical Consultant will be working under the overall supervision of the EVAW Specialist and Team Leader & Project Coordinator- GRB in UN Women. The person will be reporting to the Director, DWCD for daily functions in DWCD, Government of Delhi.
