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, 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.
At the heart of UN Women's mandate in humanitarian action and disaster risk reduction is ensuring equality between women, men, and persons of diverse gender identities as partners and beneficiaries of humanitarian action. Globally and in the Asia-Pacific region, we leverage our triple mandate —normative, coordination and operational – towards ensuring that gender equality and women's empowerment are systematically integrated across coordination, planning, implementation, and monitoring of disaster risk reduction, resilience building, humanitarian response, and recovery.
In pursuit of this mission, and guided by global norms and standards and UN Women's Humanitarian Strategy, the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific works to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in humanitarian efforts through four mutually reinforcing strategies across the spectrum of disaster risk reduction, response, and recovery:

Required Skills and Experience
Interns who are not in receipt of financial support from other sources such as universities or other institutions will receive a stipend from UN Women to partially subsidize their basic living costs for the duration of the internship.
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.
