1. Assignment Information
The purpose of this consultancy is to support the transformation of training materials on gender statistics, which were initially developed for face-to-face training, into e-learning modules. The materials were developed as part of the Asia-Pacific Training Curriculum on Gender Statistics and the content has now been adapted for e-learning. The consultant is expected to help with the digitalization of the materials to transform them into e-learning modules.
2. UN Women Background:
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.
3. Assignment Background:
To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s Flagship Programme Initiative, “Making Every Woman and Girl Count (Women Count)” aims to affect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Asia-Pacific regional component of the MEWG Programme encompasses a multi-year and multi-country programme of work with particular focus on implementing and supporting regional and country-specific activities in Asia and the Pacific. This includes work in the three inter-related key areas: (1) Building a supportive policy and institutional environment for the localization and effective monitoring of the SDGs; (2) Increasing the quality, comparability and regularity of gender statistics to address national data gaps and meet reporting commitments under the SDGs; and (3) Ensuring that gender statistics are accessible to users in governments, civil society, academia and the private sector, to strengthen adequate demand for their production.
Within the context of implementing this programme in Asia and the Pacific, a Training curriculum on gender statistics was created by UN Women, SIAP, ESCAP and the Subgroup on Gender Statistics Training. The materials developed for this curriculum were initially envisaged for face-to-face training. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, these materials are now being transformed into e-learning modules. Work has already been undertaken to adjust the technical content of the materials, but these need to be digitalized. To achieve this, UN Women is looking to engage a consultant for digitalization of modules 4 and 11 of the Training Curriculum. This work will include:
