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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations System efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
Afghanistan is one of the world’s most complex emergencies, and the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Afghan people are grappling with the impact of conflict, poverty, economic decline, and natural disasters. In this context, Afghan women and girls face unique vulnerabilities and require urgent support as gender inequality is interwoven with conflict dynamics and humanitarian needs. It is essential that Afghan women and girls can continue to shape the development of their country, and that their gains are protected. UN Women remains fully committed to supporting Afghan women and girls and to putting them at the center of the global response to the crisis in Afghanistan.
UN Women has been in Afghanistan for two decades. UN Women’s programming approach is informed by analysis of the political, economic and humanitarian situation, risks to and capacities of partner organizations, and needs of Afghan women and girls. UN Women Afghanistan currently has four key programme priorities: (1) Gender in Humanitarian Action, (2) Ending Violence Against Women, (3) Women’s Economic Empowerment, and (4) Women, Peace and Security.
Objective of the Assignment:
The main objective of the assignment is to develop, analyse, and present gender data and statistics to build a comprehensive evidence base on gender equality and women’s rights in Afghanistan. The assignment aims to address the limited availability of accessible knowledge and analysis on the gender dynamics of Afghanistan and ensure that decision-makers have the data and analysis they need to make gender-responsive policy and programming choices. The consultant will report to the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Manager at UN Women Afghanistan and may be drawn on by other teams/thematic areas.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the direct supervision of the WPS Programme Manager, the consultant will be responsible to leverage the use of statistical, administrative and innovative data, for helping to build an evidence base of high-quality gender data and statistics, in line with UN Women strategic objectives. Gender data and statistics will contribute to documentation and understanding of the situation of women in Afghanistan and support advocacy and programming on gender equality and women’s rights. The consultant will identify data and knowledge gaps, and develop strategies for data collection from various sources, efficiently integrate and process data and metadata for social computing and statistical analysis, and communication using a wide range of methods.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW, and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
