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 between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
Since 2001, UN Women (UNIFEM) has been providing continues support to partners in Georgia to increase meaningful participation of women in conflict prevention, conflict resolution and sustainable peacebuilding processes. Under the current country programme and in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025) UN Women supports the government to develop and implement National Action Plans for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security #1325 et al. and to achieve targets of the nationalized SDG 5 and 16.
2020 marks 20 years since the Security Council adopted resolution 1325 (2000). This watershed resolution for the first time recognized the importance of women’s full, equal, and meaningful participation in conflict resolution and the need for increased women’s participation at peacemaking and decision-making at all levels in peace processes. Twenty years and ten resolutions later, it’s clear that this promise has yet to be fully realized.
UN Women, with generous support of the UK Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) has been implementing a project “Accelerating Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Georgia” aiming at enhancing the women’s meaningful participation in peacebuilding, including the internally displaced and conflict-affected women and girls, as well as gender mainstreaming in security sector in Georgia.
While women are significantly affected by the conflicts and often play a leading role in local peacebuilding, their experiences and contributions continue to be generally unrecognized and their formal participation in peace processes limited. In this context, policy actors around the world are calling for inclusive peace processes and diversification of voices, new approaches to conflict resolution and effective conflict prevention. This call demands smarter design and the involvement of women, youth and others traditionally excluded from shaping pathways to peace.
UN Women is committed to strengthening women’s participation and rights everywhere. Women’s meaningful participation in peace and political processes is critical at all stages, across the conflict spectrum, hence in order to create a rising tide of women’s leadership, for sustainable peace and support the full, equal and meaningful participation of women in peace processes in Georgia, UN Women plans to hire an international consultant who will be responsible for developing and writing a technical proposal to respond to the following objectives:
