KAP Survey Technical Advisor
|Application Deadline :||29-Sep-20 (Midnight New York, USA)|

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.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been active and present in eastern Ukraine for the past decade, prior to the conflict, with a focus on community development, civil society development, and environmental protection. Work on addressing the specific conflict-related development challenges built on this earlier engagement, established partnerships, and started in 2015 through the United Nations Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme (UN RPP). UN RPP is a multi-donor funded framework programme formulated and led by the UNDP in collaboration with the Government of Ukraine and in cooperation with a number of partnering UN agencies (UN Women, FAO, UNFPA). UN RPP was designed to respond to, and mitigate, the causes and effects of the conflict in the east of Ukraine. It is an integral component of the UNDP Country Programme and is therefore fully aligned with the United Nations Partnership Framework (UNPF).
The conflict in eastern Ukraine has had widespread impacts upon the human security of civilian population. OHCHR reports show that there were more than 1059 civilian casualties related to mine and ERW incidents since the beginning of the conflict. Ukraine is one of the most contaminated countries in the world and became the most affected country by anti-vehicle mine accidents. The presence or suspicion of landmines, booby-traps, anti-vehicle mines, cluster munitions, or any number of other explosive remnants of war (ERWs) is adversely impacting on civilian’s lives, restricting agriculture, inhibiting basic sustenance activities and disrupting essential infrastructure and services in many parts of eastern Ukraine. The situation of IDPs continues to be a major humanitarian concern and it is estimated that over 1.4 million people have been displaced since 2014, women and children representing 63% of them.
The Government of Ukraine is undertaking a reform of its mine action response in line with the International Mine Action Standards that include gender dimensions and the National Action Plan to implement the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 "Women, Peace and Security" (2016-2020). A new legislation was passed in January 2019 and calls for the development of mine action national standards and envisages the set-up of a dedicated National Mine Action Authority and Mine Action Centers to ensure coordination of measures for the management and regulation of all mine action activities in Ukraine.
UNDP’s Capacity Development Support for Integrated Mine Action in Eastern Ukraine (Mine Action) project is aimed at supporting the Government of Ukraine in establishing a comprehensive, coordinated and gender-responsive mine action. The project will provide strategic capacity development support for mine action to enhance integrated planning, coordination, and operational efficiencies amongst the different mine action stakeholders presently active at national level and regionally in eastern Ukraine (Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts).
An essential part of the project is enhancing mine risks prevention thorough an improved education framework. Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE) has been running in Ukraine since 2015 by different organizations and there is a need to determine an efficiency of the ongoing programme by measuring changes in knowledge (K), attitude (A) and practice (P) of population on landmines and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW). The first KAP studies were conducted in 2015 and 2016 which contributed to the development of prevention campaigns through posters, televised adverts, radio messages and education programmes directly provided at community level and in the school curriculum. This KAP Survey should provide an up-to-date database about knowledge, attitudes and practices, as well as about more qualitative information on the problems facing populations affected by mines/ERW.
The Project now seeks to identify and recruit highly qualified and experienced international Technical Advisor who will provide technical expertise in mobilization of necessary resources to conduct KAP Survey in the East Ukraine on the government-controlled areas (GCA) as well as to ensure technical guidance on survey tasks’ performance.
