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.
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 for women 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 Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.
To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s Flagship Programme Initiative “Making Every Woman and Girl Count (Women Count)” aims to affect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Asia-Pacific regional component of the MEWG Programme, in particular, supports countries across the region to build a supportive environment for the production of gender data, increase the quality and availability of this data, and ensure gender statistics are accessible to users in governments, civil society, academia, the private sector and the general public.
The Asian and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Decade, 2015-2024, was proclaimed in 2014 at the first Ministerial Conference on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific. Through the declaration of the Decade, governments marked 2015-2024 as a timeframe for realizing their shared vision that all people in Asia and the Pacific will benefit from universal and responsive CRVS systems facilitating the realization of their rights and supporting good governance, health and development. Member States committed to “promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls through the provision of documents to prove family relations and civil status, and the production of age-, sex- and geographically disaggregated statistics”. In connection to this, a Ministerial Conference on CRVS will be held in Bangkok in 2021. The conference will include a session on using CRVS to inform gendered responses to COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific. In contribution to this event, and in order to generate a knowledge product that can enhance the availability of evidence on how CRVS can be used to inform emergency responses, UN Women is seeking the services of a consultant.
