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 provides leadership on new and existing WPS accountability frameworks to Member States and regional bodies, supports Civil Society Organizations and works to ensure a place at the table where the contributions of women of all ages to conflict and crisis prevention, resolution and peacebuilding are recognized and valued equally.
Although the WPS Agenda achieved wide acceptance as an international policy framework, being integrated into various development and peace programs, women remain excluded or under-represented in most peace processes. While studies show that the role of women in preventing conflict in fragile contexts and in settlement negotiations is highly relevant, the efforts to involve women to meaningfully participate in all processes of decision making, including in conflict prevention and response, as well as in security matters has been very modest.
Under the Peacebuilding Fund, UN Women, in partnership with OHCHR and UNDP, is implementing a two-years project “Building sustainable and inclusive peace, strengthening trust and social cohesion in Moldova” (hereinafter – PBF project) on both banks of Nistru river. The project seeks to facilitate an enabling environment for improved cross-river cooperation, reduced social tensions and the continuation of the fragile Transnistrian region settlement process in the context of growing regional and domestic geopolitical tensions exacerbated by the war in Ukraine, through the advancement of, and cross-river collaboration on human rights, Women, Peace and Security, and the promotion of equal access to services and through ensuring early intervention to prevent deepening divisions between the populations on either side of the conflict divide which are currently being affected by highly divisive narratives and misinformation.
The project is aligned with the provisions under the draft of the second-generation National Program and Action Plan (NAP) for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) for the period 2023-2027 developed in Moldova with UN Women support. The new NAP, expected to be enacted in early 2023, is based on the four Pillars of the UNSCR 1325: Prevention, Participating, Protection, Relief, and Recovery and it addresses, among other aspects, actions aimed at enhancing women’s meaningful participation in the security and defense sector, including in the conflict settlement processes and peacebuilding efforts, primarily from a human security perspective and includes intervention at the local level to decentralize the WPS commitments.
