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 center 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. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
To support member states in coping with, and recovering from, the COVID-19 crisis through evidence-based decision-making, UN Women’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is implementing the programme “Building Back Better: Promoting a gender data-driven response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the Pacific and South-East Asia”, with the generous support from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The programme supports countries to generate gender data to measure the impact of the crisis and the resilience of women and men in the Pacific and South-East Asia. It also supports evidence-based decision making to ensure policy responses to the COVID-19 crisis are gender-responsive.
The Statistics Specialists reports to the Regional Gender and Statistics Specialist, Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP). The Statistics Specialist will work on supporting the preparation, design, implementation, data processing and completion of rapid assessment surveys, official surveys on resilience-related topics, and other forms of data production. In addition the Statistics Specialist will provide related capacity building and guidance to countries for data production and use, and will contribute to the preparation of reports, knowledge products and programme monitoring documents.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
