Title: Project Coordinator
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 maintains a large presence throughout Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region, covering 12 countries, with programme presence in Kosovo* , Serbia, Tajikistan and North Macedonia; and country offices in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine.
Over the past years, through the technical and financial support UN Women have been carried out different initiatives in Western Balkans’ countries with the goal of strengthening democratic governance and advance women’s rights aiming at mainstreaming gender in policy planning and budgeting.
In Kosovo Project “Gender component in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) management and Social Dialogue” will be implemented as part of UNOPS Program on promoting decent work through strengthening Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) management and Social Dialogue.” The long-term goal of the Programe is set against SDG 8 and its particular target 8 to ‘protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers’. In this light the gender component implemented through this project’s activities will focus on gender responsive promotion of decent work and OSH standards with the ultimate aim to foster women’s economic empowerment. In addition, it will provide detailed knowledge regarding women specific working conditions, including maternity leave protection, work organization as well as protection from gender-based discrimination and/or violence at the workplace. More specifically the activities will seek to achieve the following three outputs.
The target group of this component of the project are women working in the formal economy, women entrepreneurs, and front-line service providers and institutes promoting decent work through strengthened OSH management.
The project will be implemented in Kosovo, which is funded by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs through ‘UNOPS Programe on promoting decent work through strengthening Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) management and Social Dialogue.”
The Project Coordinator will work under the direct supervision of the UN Women Kosovo Head of Office/Program Specialist.
