The Joint Programme on “The Human Security Approach to Promote Community Cohesion in the North
Pacific: Human rights-based recovery from COVID-19” proposes to implement a three-country pilot – in
the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Nauru and Palau – to demonstrate the value of using the
human security approach in supporting these three Micronesian countries to address community issues
as part of the broader discussion on enhancing social cohesion. It also seeks to establish priorities for
implementing human rights commitments in the context of recovery planning as well as longer-term
development programming at the national and local levels.
The Programme is set to produce concrete outcomes that inform national development and human rights
implementation plans, through dialogues and by collating and sharing nationally and regionally the
knowledge, good practice and lessons learned in the Pacific context. All three countries have undergone
a review by the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review process, which supports them in
setting new human rights goals for the next four- to five-year period. In addition, they have been reviewed
by a number of UN human rights treaty bodies over the past years. UN engagement with these three
Micronesian countries is particularly timely also from a political and sustainable development perspective
as programmes that support enhanced human security are more limited in the North Pacific than in other
parts of the region.
In the three target countries, OHCHR and UNDP will work with national partners to organise a series of
community and national dialogues bringing together government and non-government stakeholders (incl.
specific dialogues for women and young people) to discuss COVID19 and broader development and
human rights issues, with a view to sharing concerns, collaborating on people-centred responses and
strengthening the social contract.
The consultant will work to plan, implement, and review targeted community outreach dialogue and
prepare the knowledge products, which are the outcome of the community dialogues. These will
influence the knowledge products of the joint programme which includes community dialogue reports,
country report and a regional report.
