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.
Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
To support member states in coping with, and recovering from, the COVID-19 crisis through evidence-based decision-making, UN Women’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is implementing the programme “Building Back Better: Promoting a gender data-driven response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the Pacific and South-East Asia”, with the generous support from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The programme supports countries to generate gender data to measure the impact of the crisis and the resilience of women and men in the Pacific and South-East Asia. It also supports evidence-based decision making to ensure policy responses to the COVID-19 crisis are gender-responsive.
The Project Coordinators report to the Regional Gender Statistics Specialist, Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP). Through matrix management reporting (dotted line), the project coordinators will also report to the relevant Country Programme Coordinator and work in close coordination with the Programme Specialist, Gender Equality Women’s Rights & Governance (GEWRG), UN Women Fiji, Multi-Country Officer (MCO). The Project Coordinators will work on supporting the liaison with National Statistics Offices, Ministries of Women and other relevant government entities for rapid assessment survey implementation, the design and rollout of official surveys or modules on resilience-related topics, and other forms of data production. In addition, the Project Coordinators will coordinate with national counterparts for the organization of capacity building events and data user-producer dialogues, as well as to gather inputs for the preparation of reports, knowledge products and programme monitoring documents. Furthermore, they will participate in national coordination meetings and mechanisms to promote the use of gender data to inform national policy making and monitoring.
