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.
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.
UNDP has a long history of working with the Papua New Guinea (PNG) Government and civil society to address gender-based violence (GBV). UNDP supported the PNG Department for Community Development and Religion (DfCDR) through the Office for Development of Women to develop the PNG National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence (2016-2025). Since 2019 UNDP, as part of the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative has been supporting a range of activities aimed at assisting national partners to address GBV as an urgent priority.
As part of the national effort to act to end GBV, the PNG Coalition of Parliamentarians to End Gender-Basaed Violence was launched in August 2020, and currently comprises 20 Members of Parliament (out of the total of 111 MPs). The Coalition collectively led the first ever National Gender-Based Violence Summit which was held in from 8-10 November 2020.The Summit resulted in a substantive Outcome Statement signed by all Coalition members endorsing a number of priorities for action.
On 11 November 2020, members of the Coalition of Parliamentarians to End Gender-Based Violence successfully advocated for the establishment of the Special Parliamentary Committee on GBV.The Committee is chaired by Hon. Charles Abel, MP and has seven members. Hon. Charles Abel and his Vice-Chair Hon. Allan Bird, Governor ESP, and 3 other members are also members of the Coalition of Parliamentarians to End Gender-Based Violence. Terms of Reference were endorsed by the Parliament which focus the Committee’s efforts on: identifying measures to prevent GBV with the focus on behavioural change for future generations; examining the experiences of frontline services, advocacy groups and others working to address GBV; inquiring into the level and impact of coordination and accountability for services and policy responses at national, provincial and local levels; inquiring into the adequacy of data on GBV and examining how to improve collection of data by key stakeholders like courts, police and hospitals; and identifying perpetrator intervention programs and support services to help them change their behaviour.
The current term of Parliament will end in June 2022 with national elections. This will end the mandate of the Special Committee on GBV and may impact on the work of the Coalition as well. Recognising the urgency to make progress before the end of their terms, UNDP is therefore committed to actively supporting the Special Committee and the Coalition of Parliamentarians to End Gender-Based Violence over the next year to implement their agreed priorities. Both the Coalition and Committee are currently in the process of developing action plans to guide their work. These action plans will be used to guide the work of this consultancy, in support of the overarching goal of addressing GBV through high level parliamentary actions.
