Project Title: Strengthening the Human Rights Data-Driven Policy Advocacy
Project Background, Rational and Project Description
After the 1986 People’s Power Revolution and the restoration of democracy, there was hope that a culture of human rights would take root in the Philippines. The enshrinement of human rights in the 1987 Constitution, and the establishment of the Commission on Human Rights soon after, indicated that steps were being taken in this direction.
Continuing the legacy of the People Power Revolution, the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 (PDP) aims to fulfill the aspirations set by the Constitution through the Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) to public service.1 The PDP exhorts that democratic institutions, including the Commission of Human Rights (CHR), would be strengthened, particularly in regards to monitoring and evaluation, as well as legal protection, awareness, and aid.2 At the same time, the PDP stresses that citizens would be empowered with the access to information, training, and the mechanisms with which they can participate in governance processes, so that they themselves can claim their rights.3
The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has placed great pressure on longstanding human rights issues, including access to education, access to decent work, women and youth rights, and civil and political rights. This is more so apparent as the country goes through the crisis and where opportunists target social media to troll and churn out fake content, false narratives, and, smear campaigns against ordinary citizens.
In fulfillment of the PDP, the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the Philippines aim to support the promotion and protection of citizen’s rights through a ‘Know Your Rights” advocacy campaign, especially under the time of COVID-19 pandemic.
Recognizing the role and impact of digital media and visual tools for human rights (HR) education and promotion, the project aims to produce and popularize eight (8) short videos that will provide crucial information on human rights doctrine as well as practical information on HR concerns that will be easily downloaded or shared to targeted sectors, especially the vulnerable and marginalized communities at the national and sub-national levels. These videos shall also feature the civil and political rights recommendation by Norway in the 2017 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on the death penalty, extra-judicial killings, and enforced disappearances.
UNDP, therefore, aims to engage the services of a Producer who can produce the short thematic videos for Know Your Rights advocacy campaign which will be popularized in multi-media platforms to reach the vulnerable communities in the country.
The Contractor will be under the direct supervision of the Programme Analyst from the UNDP the Institutions and Partnerships. The IC will closely coordinate with the Focal from the CHR Education and Promotion Office.
The Programme Analyst will regularly communicate and monitor on the progress of the outputs. The Contractor is expected to be accessible through mobile and digital collaboration tools on an agreed schedule and when required by the Programme Analyst or Project Coordinator.
The draft and final short videos produced by the Contractor shall be endorsed to the UNDP Programme Team Leader for clearance and final approval. The Communications Unit shall also signoff the final videos vis-à-vis UNDP branding guidelines.

The Contractor is expected to start for 50-man days spread over 2months.
