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 is committed to the achievement of equality between women, men, boys and girls as partners and beneficiaries of humanitarian action. UN Women is leading and coordinating the United Nations System to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It is providing strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The past 10 years has seen several important normative developments relating to humanitarian action and the transition from response, to recovery, resilience and preparedness. The consolidated commitments to gender equality and women’s empowerment formulated in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the SDGs and Security Council Resolution 2242 on Women’s Peace and Security are particularly significant. Furthermore, five World Humanitarian Summit’s core commitments aims to integrate gender equality and women’s empowerment into the humanitarian agenda.
UN Women’s engagement in humanitarian action and crises response has increased in recent years, resulting in the establishment of the Humanitarian Action and Crises Response Office (HACRO) in 2017. Among the HACRO key deliverables in 2018 is an increased focus on partner-led advocacy events to improve the understanding of the challenges faced by women and girls in humanitarian situations, and to promote the empowerment of women and girls in prevention and crises response. UN Women has initiated a new programme on second change education (CSE) and has stepped up its work on cash-based interventions and on the use of blockchain technology. HACRO wishes to recruit a consultant to help with the design and promotion of events and advocacy material for this new engagement.
