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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nation system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
An important component of UN Women’s work is its support to women’s full and equal representation and participation in all levels of peace and security efforts. UN Women’s work on this area is guided by the UN Security Council Resolution 1325, on Women Peace and Security, adopted in 2000, which stresses the importance of equal participation and full involvement of women in all efforts of maintaining and promoting peace and security.
In Albania, UN Women through the Fund for Gender Equality and in collaboration with other partners, has been supporting the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda for several years, in order to translate it from policy to practice, build relevant capacities of state authorities and civil society, and increase opportunities for women’s participation at all levels of decision making in political, economic, and public life.
Resulting from these joint efforts, the Government of Albania developed and adopted the first National Action Plan on the Implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (NAP 2018 – 2020), which integrates the gender perspective into the national foreign and security policy framework. This process, involving a series of consultations with different stakeholders was supported by seven partners, including UN Women, OSCE, European Union and the Dutch Embassy in Albania.
Through this document the GoA committed to work towards the achievement of the following five key objectives:
