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.

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.
The UN Women Cambodia Country Office (CCO) Strategic Note (SN) 2019-2023 focuses on three key priorities to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). The first priority is to strengthen government capacity and accountability to integrate international norms and commitments (CEDAW, SDGs, Beijing PfA, Sendai) into national legislative and regulatory frameworks, including supporting dialogue and CSO engagement in accountability for GEWE commitments. The second area of focus is Ending Violence Against Women where CCO’s focus includes creating an enabling environment to prevent, respond to and prosecute all forms of GBV as well as ensuring that marginalised women who experience violence, including women migrant workers, access services and protections. Thirdly, CCO works to enhance gender responsiveness in climate change action and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). A focus on empowerment, women’s leadership, challenging negative gender norms and leaving no one behind runs through the programme.
The current project aims to respond to the most urgent needs of highly vulnerable women and girls, particularly migrant workers, ethnic minorities, people working in the informal sector and those living in disaster-prone areas, who are disproportionately affected by the severe resurgence of COVID-19 pandemic after April 2021 in Mekong countries. It will also contribute to highlighting need for gender-responsive measures into COVID-19 socio-economic recovery plans. The project builds on cross-cutting elements foundational to a comprehensive COVID-19 prevention and response approach. The normative components, including policies and standards, within this project will influence how all gender equality and empowerment of women and girls approaches are adaptive in the COVID-19 context. The services and capacity strengthening components will demonstrate the implementation of these standards and norms within this new context.
Reporting to the country programme coordinator, the consultant will provide operational and programme support to the programme team in the development and implementation of effective programmes consistent with UN Women rules and regulations. The consultant contributes to programme implementation by providing necessary technical expertise and operational support. The consultant works in close collaboration with the operations, programme and projects’ staff in the country program and regional staff as required for resolving complex program and operational related issues.
