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 National GBV Strategy was endorsed in December 2016 and launched in early 2017. In 2019, DfCDR established the Interim Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Secretariat as a key output of the National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence (2016-2025).
The Secretariat’s role is to ensure there is high-level coordination and accountability by the government to GBV issues as well as ensuring that there is enhanced multi-sectoral GBV prevention and strengthened quality essential services for survivors of gender-based violence, both at the national and provincial levels. It is also responsible for the establishment of Provincial GBV Secretariats within provinces to mainstream and coordinate GBV prevention and response activities including Capacity Building and Training, Research, Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation and Communication and Outreach.
UNDP has a long history of working with the Papua New Guinea Government and Civil Society partners on addressing GBV. UNDP supported the PNG Department for Community Development and Religion (DfCDR) through the Office for Development of Women (ODW) to develop the PNG National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence (2016-2025) and through this piloted the establishment of four Provincial GBV Secretariats. There is a need to revisit the four pilot Provincial GBV Secretariats and to support provinces with interests to establish or strengthen their Provincial GBV Secretariats.
As part of its work under the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative, UNDP in consultation with the Interim GBV Secretariat seeks the services of an experienced consultant to work closely with the Interim GBV Secretariat on its plan to support existing Provincial GBV Secretariats or establish GBV Secretariats. The target provinces for UNDP in Phase 1 of Spotlight are Morobe, East New Britain, Hela, Southern Highlands and Enga.
The EU-UN Spotlight Initiative is a global partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in support of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. The Spotlight Initiative in Papua New Guinea is implemented through four UN agencies (UNDP, UN Women, UNFPA and UNICEF) with a focus on addressing intimate partner violence and domestic violence. It follows a transformative and evidence-based approach, addressing unequal power relations between men and women and focusing on gender equality and women’s empowerment. The overall vision of the Spotlight Initiative in PNG is that women and girls enjoy their right to a life free of violence, within an inclusive and gender equitable PNG. This contributes to implementation of PNG’s National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender Based Violence (2016-2025), with attention to holistic prevention and responses to violence against women.
