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.
Under the framework of the forthcoming Nepal Country Office Strategic Note (SN) 2018-2022, UN Women recognizes social norm change as a critical development priority and is adopting Communications for Development (C4D) as its approach to mobilizing awareness and action in challenging the beliefs and social practices which underlie gender inequality in Nepal. Beyond the organizational effectiveness of ensuring corporate visibility, communications will serve as a platform on which to ground programming for sustainable development results. This will require that the Country Office increase expertise in C4D methodologies to enable deeper engagement with communities where multi-directional and inter-generational dialogues will enhance sharing, listening and understanding as the basis for action and change. Community members will identify problems, propose solutions and act on them, while receiving support from UN Women’s partners at the local level. The strategy for C4D will include a mix of interactive mediums and communications technologies and will use different means such as traditional and modern art forms. This will also enable data generation, which will contribute to overall monitoring efforts and support the measurement of C4D interventions. In building C4D into its programming, UN Women will also work with youth networks, the private sector and media to launch initiatives that promote community engagement, using print, mobile, digital and broadcast media. Given the demographic dividend, the focus will be on young people and their community gatekeepers (religious leaders, traditional healers, and local government officials), using inter-generational dialogues for deeper public engagement. Moreover, the Country Office will leverage existing coordination mechanisms for social norm change, bringing together like-minded development partners with civil society groups, local community members and government officials.
Reporting to Unit Manager (Economic Empowerment Unit), Communication for Development Officer will offer technical support and will help design, form, manage, execute, monitor and evaluate a behavioral change and social mobilization strategy, plan of action, and programme activities to support the overall country programme. This includes organizing the research, development, pre-testing, and production of culturally relevant communication materials; developing and enhancing strong partnerships with community groups, leaders and civil society partners; and developing training materials and activities.
While professional support to advance C4D in UN women’s work in Nepal, Communication for Development Officer will also serve as a Communication Focal Point of the Country Office and allocate 30 % of her/his work to manage, implement and monitor the Country Office’s communications to ensure corporate visibility to both Nepali and global audience at all levels.
