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.
The Spotlight Initiative is a global partnership between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG) including harmful practices. The sustainable development goal principle of “leaving no one behind and helping first those furthest behind’ guides the Spotlight Initiative by paying particular attention to the specific needs of our most vulnerable women affected by domestic violence and intimate partner violence. The Spotlight Initiative aims to end VAWG by supporting efforts by government and civil society organizations through six outcome pillars: (1) Legislations and policies (2) Institutions (3) Prevention (4) Response Services (5) Data/Research (6) Women’s Rights Movement & Civil Society Organizations. The Spotlight initiative takes a gender transformative approach by recognizing and practicing an integrated coherent approach across pillars to ensure the ‘leave no one behind’ principle is mainstreamed across all outcomes.
The focus of Pillar 2 (Institutions) is supporting multisectoral capacity development of key government counterparts and non-government institutions in gender analysis, gender budgeting, and monitoring capacities for domestic violence. The program strategy recognizes – when institutions and individuals responsible for the decision making process and implementation of laws for prevention, protection and response to VAWG are supported with reinforced capacities and funding, these institutions and actors will be able to develop, coordinate and implement programmes that integrate DV/IPV into development planning processes.
UNDP is an implementing UN agency for the Spotlight Initiative (SI) Samoa program. UNDP’s role is to provide technical and program support through strong partnerships with key government ministries and local civil society organisations to implement targeted interventions under four of the six program pillars identified above. In addition, UNDP works in collaboration with UN Women, UNESCO, UNFPA and UNICEF and by tapping onto regional experience and learning to support SI implementation, visibility, sustainability, lessons learnt and scale up results.
UNDP seeks through this request for proposal, the services of a National Trainer to implement a gender responsive budgeting training, develop training materials and a post training workplan in Samoa. The services provided will enable national institutions and civil society organisations to identify, coordinate, and support existing and new national policy and legislative initiatives to adequately address and resource domestic violence across government and across sectors.
