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.
The SDG Joint Programme (JP) aims to facilitate increased access, availability and completeness of quality, real-time disaggregated spatial and demographic data and gender analysis for evidence-based national sustainable development policies and programmes in Barbados and Montserrat, with focus on SDG3 and SDG5. These issues will be tackled within the SDG Fund priorities of data, health, gender equality, integrated economic and policy solutions for the achievement of the SDGs, the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and relevant national development frameworks.
The SDG Fund investment to this JP is expected to yield concrete results by the end of the programme in the areas of population analyses, policy frameworks, enhanced national capacity to collect, analyze and utilize disaggregated demographic data for policy and planning across the three dimensions of development, including humanitarian action. National stakeholders will be trained to use GIS and spatial data for real time monitoring of the SDG targets and indicators related 3.7, 5.4 and 5.6. Progress will be made in strengthening national data systems and capacities to utilize administrative data to appropriately account for population sub-groups in development efforts to ensure that no one is left behind, with focus on the most vulnerable and marginalized groups. SDG 5.4.1, the focus of this consultancy, will be measured as a preliminary step to recognizing and valuing unpaid care and domestic work through relevant policies, training and education campaigns to promote shared responsibility in households and families as appropriate.
The measurement of SDG 5.4.1 was initially piloted in Grenada commencing in 2020. Details on this pilot can be review in the report “Piloting the Measurement of SDG Indicator 5.4.1 in Grenada Using the Labour Force Survey”. The report describes the training of interviewers and pretesting of the questions, as well as piloting of the questions and results of an assessment of pilot data. It also identifies recommendations for the administration of stylized retrospective questions on unpaid domestic and care work in the Grenada LFS. UN Women supported this pilot from the Joint SDG Fund.
Objectives of the assignment
The overall objective of this assignment is to support the development of a regionally agreed approach to measuring SDG 5.4.1 via the quarterly labour force surveys through the continuation of the abovementioned pilot, which commenced in Grenada.
