Job Description

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.


Background

1. Background

UN Women Background:

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.

Assignment Background:

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread violations of human rights worldwide, globally affecting around almost one in three women in her lifetime. Regional evidence suggests that a similar ratio applies in the Asia-Pacific region. Forms of VAWG may vary, and there are variations across sites, however, current available data indicates that in 2018, 19% of women in South Asia, 9% in Southeast Asia and between 19% and 30% in the Pacific experienced physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence in the past 12 months.

In Asia and the Pacific, UN Women engages in the area of Violence Against Women in a variety of forms, including through the regional project Stepping Up Solutions to Eliminate Violence against Women and Girls in Asia and the Pacific, jointly funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea. The project has a strong focus on the prevention of VAW, data and evidence building. It employs a multidimensional approach to preventing and responding to VAW by strengthening the capacity of institutions to implement legislation to prevent and end VAW; promoting transformative social norms, attitudes and behaviours at community and individual levels; and investing in the provision of essential services for survivors of violence. The project addresses VAW in schools, media, workplaces, sports and communities.

The United Nations Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women Campaign calls on governments, civil society, women’s organizations, the private sector, the media and the entire UN System to join forces to end violence against women and girls, with a focus on five main outcomes:

  • Adoption and enforcement of national laws to address and punish all forms of violence against women and girls in line with international human rights standards;
  • Adoption and implementation of multi-sectoral national plans of action that emphasize prevention and are adequately resourced;
  • Establishment of data collection and analysis systems on the prevalence of various forms of violence against women and girls;
  • Establishment of national and/or local campaigns and the engagement of civil society in preventing violence against women and girls and supporting victims of violence against women and girls; and
  • Systematic efforts to address sexual violence in conflict situations.

The purpose of this consultancy is to support the Ending Violence against Women unit in the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and Pacific in Bangkok, Thailand on a regular basis – approximately 2 days per week for the duration of the assignment – with graphic design and developing visual communications materials for internal and external use. The Design Consultant will support the Stepping Up programme, UNITE campaign initiatives (including 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence) and related communications efforts.
