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.

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 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. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for a new and transformative vision with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While Thailand has made progress in reducing poverty overall, persistent and newly emerging development challenges can still be seen. These include multi-dimensional inequality, health, education, access to justice, climate change and natural disasters, rising urbanization, demographic shifts and the emergence of extremist groups and ideologies. Understanding how these trends can impede or enable progress towards gender equality and sustainable development is vital for effective SDG implementation. Ensuring women’s equal rights, access and opportunities for participation and leadership in the economy, society and political decision-making are at the core of UN Women’s work in Thailand. While there has been much progress in advancing gender equality, such progress is unevenly experienced by women who are marginalized because of a complex interplay of factors.
In 2021, UN Women in Thailand will continue to strengthen and implement a comprehensive and dynamic set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls at the policy and local levels. This will include the provision of strong policy advice and advocacy on normative UN issues which will allow UN Women to link its work with other outcome areas including Women, Peace and Security, gender equality in social protection, anti-human trafficking, gender-responsive budgeting and women’s political participation and decision-making process.
The Royal Thai Government’s relatively comprehensive social protection system is comprised of 44 government welfare programmes that take care of people in all age ranges. However, there remain gaps in coverage for vulnerable groups, particularly migrant and domestic workers employed in the informal sector. Women in the informal sector are still facing barriers in accessing social welfare and social security benefits due to their inability to afford the required contribution of social security or the lack of formally recognized employer/employee relations. Although the Government has put in efforts to ensure the rights and protection for domestic workers, both Thais and non-Thais, its implementation of policies remain challenging and there are policy gaps that do not ensure protection for undocumented migrants and especially domestic workers who are most vulnerable, especially due to the excluded workplace of private households that hinder inspections by authorities and their inability to access social security and protection.
On the Women, Peace and Security agenda, UN Women Thailand will continue to provide technical supports to the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security and the Coordination Center for Women and Children in Southern Border Provinces (CCWC-SBP) for the implementation of the Measure and Guideline on Women, Peace and Security. The CCWC-SBP is a coordinating body on women and children issues between central and local levels and among multi-ministry government, non-government and civil society sectors in the Southern Border Provinces. The CCWC-SBP is also a mechanism to monitor the implementation to be aligned with UNSC 1325 and other international frameworks including CEDAW and CRC. UN Women Thailand will focus on institutionalizing women’s peace and security to promote resilient, cohesive and peaceful communities.
In addition to this, since 2018 UN Women has been working in pilot communities in the border provinces of Tak and Chiang Rai to increase awareness on the rights of women migrant workers and gender sensitivity in migration including the protection of victims of trafficking among women migrant workers and all relevant stakeholders. Through local NGO partners, UN Women has engaged local authorities and key community members to participate in human trafficking responsive mechanism and strengthening the capacity of relevant stakeholders on the protection of victims of trafficking to strengthen the assistance system for vulnerable migrants who are at risk of trafficking in person or labour exploitation, specifically women migrant workers and girls in migrant communities. In addition, UN Women has empowered women migrant workers and girls on socio-economic self-reliance through a provision of vocational and livelihood training and online marketing to prevent any forms of exploitation including human trafficking.
