Ending Violence Against Women and Girls / EVAWG
The Pacific has some of the world’s highest reported rates of violence against women, with studies showing that up to 68% of women are affected by gender-based violence (GBV). To respond to the rates of violence in the Pacific, UN Women has developed a comprehensive EVAWG programme which takes a transformative approach to prevent violence against women and girls at multiple levels (regional, national and community), and to ensure survivors have access to quality response services.
UN Women’s EVAWG programme is implemented primarily under the Pacific Partnership to End Violence Against Women and Girls (hereafter referred to as ‘Pacific Partnership’). The Pacific Partnership brings together governments, civil society organizations, communities and other partners to promote gender equality, prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG), and increase access to quality response services for survivors. The programme aims - through innovative approaches to education, access to essential services, and policy development - to transform the social norms that allow violence against women and girls to continue and to support national and regional institutions meet their gender equality commitment. The EUR 22.7 million programme is funded primarily by the European Union (EUR 12.7m) with targeted support from the Governments of Australia (EUR 6.2m) and New Zealand (EUR 3.2) and cost-sharing with UN Women (EUR 0.6m).
Reporting to the EVAW Programme Manager at UN Women, the Ending Violence Against Women and Girls (EVAWG) Technical Specialist, Vanuatu, is responsible for the planning and implementation of UN Women’s portfolio under the Pacific Partnership to respond and prevent VAWG in Vanuatu. This includes providing direct technical support and advice to partners and stakeholders in Vanuatu; leading the management and implementation of programme activities in line with the annual work plans, and working in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, civil society and government partners, UN Women MCO staff, multi and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UN Women programme implementation under the Pacific Partnerships overall action. In particular, the Technical Specialist, Vanuatu will collaborate with the primary donors, the European Union, Australian Government, and New Zealand Government, the other coordinating partners, Pacific Community (SPC) Regional Rights Resource Team (RRRT) and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS), and UN Women’s government and CSO partners.
