Migration is a fundamental component of women’s economic empowerment in Asia and the Pacific. When migration and workplaces are safe and free of discrimination, and when women have equality of access and opportunity in the labour market, migration provides an important pathway to gain skills, work experience and social empowerment. UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) through its Migration and Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) programmes works to protect and promote the rights of migrant women in the region to safe migration, decent work, and increased economic empowerment opportunities that enable them to realise their potential to sustainable development.
In partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), UN Women is now implementing the 4-year Poverty Reduction through Safe Migration, Skills Development and Enhanced Job Placement in Cambodia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar and Thailand (PROMISE) project. The project’s overall goal is that migrants, especially women, from CLM have improved opportunities and conditions, particularly in Thailand, through enhanced skills and protection, leading to poverty reduction in communities of origin. Under the project, UN Women will strengthen its promotion of inclusive growth and gender inclusion in skills development training that is responsive to the needs of women migrant workers from CLM, including ensuring stakeholders, mainly private sector are engaged; and that gender components are integrated all of the project activities.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UN Women ROAP has been working on aligning its migration and women's economic empowerment programmes and preparing for future programme development in response to the emerging needs of migrant women in the region affected by the impact of the epidemic. To support the work in the areas mentioned above, the Migration unit is currently seeking an individual junior consultant.
