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.
The UN Women MCO Caribbean covers 22 countries and territories in the English and Dutch speaking Caribbean, which are part of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Strides towards gender equality in the countries covered by the MCO have resulted in gains for women and girls in the Caribbean, relating primarily to high education rates and increases in employment rates. However critical gaps remain. These gaps are further exploited during hazards like COVID-19 and other environmental hazards.
The UN Women programme on Strengthening Gender-Responsive Disaster Resilience in the Caribbean proposes a comprehensive package for gender-responsive resilience that focuses on rendering prevention, preparedness and response systems, gender-responsive plans and tools, and provides targeted action enabling women, girls and unemployed, unattached young men to withstand natural hazards, recover fully from disasters and increase their resilience to future natural hazards.
2021 represents the last year of the implementation of UN Women’s Strategic Plan, the beginning of the strategic planning cycle which is in line with the UN system wide strategic level planning.
