Support the production of gender statistics and research in Asia and the Pacific - Consultant
1. Assignment Information
The purpose of this consultancy is to support the implementation of research and analytical activities by various units within UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific by, in particular, supporting data analysis and research in the areas of sustainable development, climate change, peace and security from a gender angle.
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. As part of the Women Count programme, UN Women’s statistics team also supports other teams in the production of analytical products across all thematic areas of the organization. These include, among others, advancing women, peace and security and humanitarian action in the ASEAN region; strengthening gender-responsive disaster preparedness in ASEAN; addressing gender and corruption across Asia and the Pacific; measuring the gendered effects of climate change in countries across the region; and informing inter-governmental processes with gender data for evidence-based decision-making.
Within the context of implementing the programme of work of UN Women’s Asia-Pacific regional office, and with the ultimate goal of enhancing the quality, availability and use of gender statistics and research in the region, UN Women is producing a number of research products and data events. This consultant will contribute to the creation of multiple knowledge products, including through microdata analysis and reprocessing. The consultant will report to UN Women’s Regional Advisor on Gender Statistics for Asia and the Pacific.
