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.
United Nation Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (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. UN Women in Georgia supports state and non-state partners towards the achievement of substantive gender equality in Georgia. In line with national and international commitments, UN Women works on the levels of policies and legislation, institutions, and grassroots, to achieve transformative results for increased gender equality and greater protection of the rights of women and girls.
Data and statistics are indispensable for devising evidence-based policies to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment, as well as for assessing impact of legislation and policies and promoting accountability. Regardless of important advances related to gender statistics internationally such as adoption of the minimum set of gender indicators in 2013 by the UN Statistical Commission and availability of gender-specific indicators to monitor implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, important gaps in the area persist making it difficult to monitor progress for women and girls. As a part of the UN-wide investment in supporting UN Member States to track progress towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to translate global human rights norms and standards into national policies, actions and results, UN Women is committed to support national partners in strengthening data collection systems to monitor international, regional, and national commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
To strengthen production and use of gender statistics in Georgia in line with Georgia’s international and national commitments towards gender equality and women’s empowerment, UN Women, within the framework of the “Good Governance for Gender Equality” (GG4GEG) project generously funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway is supporting national data producers and users in improving production, analysis and dissemination of gender statistics. In line with these efforts, in 2020 UN Women Georgia developed Country Gender Equality Profile (CGEP) according to UN Women corporate guidance on the matter. The CGEP represents an important guide for the government, development partners, civil society organizations and academia to assess the existing situation regarding gender equality and women’s empowerment. The CGEP describes and analyses the present situation mainly based on SDG indicators, framing the analysis along the key area of concern of the Beijing Declaration and the Platform of Action (BPfA) and provisions of the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
The Georgia CGEP (released in the middle of 2020) is based mainly on 2018 data. Since then COVID-19 has dramatically changed the situation worldwide as well as in Georgia. Two waves of Rapid Gender Assessment (RGA) of COVID-19 impact in Georgia document the differential impact of the pandemic on women and men further deepening pre-existing gender inequality in the country. In 2021, UN Women plans to update the Georgia CGEP based on the administrative and survey data as well as specific qualitative studies and assessments that became available after the publication of the CGEP in 2020. The updated publication will also include trend analysis between 2018-2020 years and respective data visualizations.
In this connection, UN Women is planning to hire a National Consultant. The National Consultant will update the CGEP with more recent quantitative and qualitative data and will be responsible for the tasks outlined below.
