Historique

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Thailand works with the Royal Thai Government, civil society, private sector, and public to find solutions to persistent development challenges in Thailand. UNDP in Thailand is implementing various projects to advance the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development in Thailand.

Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) face many potential barriers and challenges in finding meaningful employment, staying employed, advancing their careers, and achieving equal pay due to stigmatization, discriminatory practices, and limited access to education and training opportunities. In the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, existing inequalities like these may disproportionately affect Thailand and putting them at risk of facing serious socio-economic hardship both during and in the aftermath of this crisis.

The challenge of acquiring meaningful and competitive employment is magnified for women with disabilities, who encounter even greater challenges—especially when other characteristics such as disability type, severity or minority status are introduced. There are several studies suggesting that women with disabilities are often disadvantaged by the intersectional discrimination associated with both their gender and their disability status. This could potentially affect personal decisions of families and those of employers, hence, exacerbating barrier that often result in limited access to education and training, including leadership building and other opportunities such as internships, apprenticeships, and technical education programs.

The COVID-19’s “new normal” has thrown into sharp focus the importance of digital skills and competences in daily life. As education and work are increasingly digitalized, the ability to access to information online and work remotely during and post-COVID will be even more critical to continue learning and secure gainful employment opportunities. Therefore, the unequal access to training opportunities can undoubtedly become a major obstacle for women with disabilities to access knowledge and information, as well as seek employment and advance in their career. This issue must be addressed in order to ensure that no one, especially the most marginalized people including the women with disabilities, is left behind.

Given the above context, UNDP Thailand in partnership with the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEP) under the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security (MSDHS) plan to jointly organize a training workshop for women with disabilities in order to equip them with digital skills needed to adapt to the new normal and prepare them for the competitive, digital-focused future of work, in view to promote a sustainable and inclusive recovery for Thailand in the context of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the overall guidance of the Deputy Resident Representative, and supervision of the Project Manager – Strengthening socio economic recovery, human security and resilience in Thailand in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak ensuring to Leave No One Behind and safeguard progress made towards the SDGs and UNDP Thailand’s Advisory Team, the consultant will provide support in the implementation of the training for women with disabilities to improve their digital skills as part of the ‘Strengthening socio economic recovery, human security and resilience in Thailand in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak ensuring to Leave No One Behind and safeguard progress made towards the SDGs’ project.
