Antecedentes

Being LGBTI in Asia is a regional programme implemented by UNDP, with funding from the Swedish Embassy in Bangkok, USAID, and the Faith in Love Foundation (Hong Kong). The programme is aims to reduce marginalization and exclusion of LGBTI people. Initiated in 2012, the programme addresses inequality, violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status, and promotes universal access to health and social services. It provides a platform for multiple stakeholders – governments, national human rights institutions, civil society, private sector, media, faith and community leaders, and educators – to engage in dialogue around LGBTI issues.

 

The work is part of a wider UNDP strategy to address discrimination against marginalized groups and ensure development practices are representative and inclusive. The final report of the Global Commission on HIV and the Law and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Resolutions 66/10 and 67/9 recommended that punitive and restrictive laws and policies targeting vulnerable communities be removed to reduce levels of social stigma, discrimination and violence

 

UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub is coordinating implementation of the programme with support from the in-country national staff in UNDP Country Offices. As a key member of this team, the Programme Management and M&E consultant will work closely with both regional and national partners to support (i) accurate and timely reporting and evidence-based planning of programme activities, (ii) overall programme management and (iii) programme development.

 

UNDP is the UN's global development network advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP’s vision is to support countries in achieving the simultaneous eradication of poverty and significant reduction of inequalities and exclusion.
