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.
UN Women Indonesia Country Office (CO) hosts the ASEAN liaison office which extends support to ASEAN and its Member States in advancing Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda in line with global normative frameworks. UN Women in partnership with Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and the Republic of Korea is implementing the regional project, “Empowering Women for Sustainable Peace: Preventing Violence and Promoting Social Cohesion in ASEAN”. The project aims to advance the implementation of the WPS agenda in ASEAN, including preventing violence against women and promoting social cohesion in the region including within the context of humanitarian and disaster settings. More specifically, the project will strengthen the capacities of ASEAN institutions and ASEAN Member States on WPS and related frameworks.
UN Women works in close collaboration with ASEAN to advance gender-responsive disaster risk reduction, in particular through the development and implementation of the ASEAN Regional Framework on Protection, Gender, and Inclusion (ARF-PGI) in Disaster Management 2021-2025 (ARF-PGI) and the operational Guidelines that accompany the Framework. An external review of previous programming in this area emphasized the importance of ensuring sustained engagement with gender actors while also investing in partnerships and collaborations with actors with specialized expertise in protection and inclusion, and of ensuring concerted capacity building efforts for the rollout of the Framework and Guidelines. In this regard, UN Women is seeking to develop a webinar series that a) provides a platform for the engagement of UN, Red Cross, and civil society organizations with specialized expertise to support the rollout of the ARF-PGI, and b) while delivered at the regional level, also equips Member States with detailed facilitation guides for replication at national level in national languages.
Working with the Programme Analyst, Gender and DRR, in close coordination with the WPS-ASEAN project team, the Consultant is expected to provide technical and coordination support to develop and document a webinar series in support of the implementation of the ARF-PGI.
