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 Pacific Multi-Country Office is based in Suva, Fiji and works alongside over 20 other UN agencies in the region and in 14 countries: Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
Under its Strategic Note 2018-2022, UN Women Fiji MCO focuses on delivering on four interlinked programme areas underpinned by support for intergovernmental and normative processes:
Ending Violence Against Women / EVAW
To respond to the rates of violence in the Pacific, UN Women has developed a comprehensive EVAW programme which is one of the largest UN Women EVAWG programmes globally. The most substantial programme under UN Women’s EVAW programme is the Pacific Partnership to End Violence Against Women and Girls which is an ambitious, five year programme which brings together governments, civil society organizations, communities and other partners to change the social norms that allow violence against women and girls to continue; to ensure survivors have access to quality response services; and to support national and regional institutions to meet their commitments to gender equality and prevention of violence against women and girls.
In addition to the Pacific Partnership Programme, UN Women is the Technical lead on both the Regional and multi-country Pacific Spotlight, as well as technical lead in the Samoa Spotlight country programme. The Spotlight initiative in the Pacific focuses on Intimate partner (physical, sexual and emotional) violence (IPV) to address the continuum of gender-based violence in the Pacific region.
Under the overall supervision of the Fiji MCO Country Representative, the Programme Advisor, Ending Violence against Women and Girls will be responsible for: a) providing substantive management and leadership support to the current programmes and investments under the EVAWG programme, totaling approximately USD30 million (b) providing substantive programme coordination and management; (c) providing leadership in the areas of advocacy, donor relations and resource mobilisation and (d) providing high quality financial and human resource management.
