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. UNODC is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime and is mandated to assist Member States in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism. UN Women and UNODC have joined forces to prevent and mitigate the impacts of trafficking and transnational crime through women’s empowerment in the greater Mekong sub region through a Joint Programme supported by the Government of Japan.
The overall goal of the project is to ensure that at-risk border communities, and women in particular, are more resilient to human trafficking and related escalation. In realizing this goal, UN Women and UNODC will focus on achieving the following outputs: (i) strengthening community awareness and the rapid provision of gender sensitive services for the reintegration and empowerment of victims; (ii) promoting the increase of women’s participation and leadership in law enforcement and border management; (iii) strengthening understanding of the true scope and impact of cross-border crime on women and their communities; and (4) strengthening the capacity of front line officers in border locations to meet the needs of women in the context of cross-border crime.
The project started in April 2018 and will end in March 2019. Given the short duration of the programme, a comprehensive evaluation cannot be conducted, however, an external light review exercise of the programme focusing on the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of key processes and outputs will foster reflection on this area of work of UN Women and UNODC and will inform possible future development on the same thematic area.
Duties and Responsibilities
The international consultant for External Light Review Exercise will be working under supervision of the Regional Policy Adviser for Governance Peace and Security of UN Women Asia Pacific Regional Office to ensuring following:
Anticipated approaches to be used for data collection and analysis by the consultant are desk review, interviews with key stakeholders, and other participatory techniques. The external light review must integrate gender and human-rights perspectives throughout each of these areas of analysis and within its methodology. This is particularly important to understand and assess programmes addressing complex, intersectional issues in women’s rights.
