UNICEF

Project Specialist - P3

Switzerland, Geneva , Geneva

UNICEF is seeking a knowledgeable and forward-looking person to lead global work on effective measures by business to prevent and address child labour, with particular reference to business own-conduct. UNICEF is upgrading its work on child labour, taking a comprehensive approach that brings together action by both the public and private sectors, with an emphasis on addressing root causes. Progress to end child labour has stalled for the first time in 20 years, reversing the previous downward trend that saw child labour fall by 94 million children between 2000 and 2016. As the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labour, 2021 has seen renewed international focus on this violation of children's rights. Child labour is most likely to be involved in production for domestic consumption, particularly in regions such as sub-Saharan Africa or rural south Asia where boys and girls alike in child labour are mainly involved in subsistence agriculture. However, a non-negligible proportion of children are engaged in production directly linked to exports and many more children are indirectly linked to global supply chains through labour in upstream tiers. Informal operations are often part of extended value chains. Furthermore, the impact of working conditions and employment policies in formal business institutions on parents, caregivers and communities can be a driver of child labour in ostensibly non-related informal settings. In agriculture, child labour takes place in family subsistence and smallholder farming, commercial plantations and other forms of commercial farming, agro-industrial complexes, capture fisheries, aquaculture, post-harvest fish processing and forestry. Family run small-scale farms may be selling to brokers who in turn sell onwards to larger companies, as is the case in the cocoa industry. Services and industry account for smaller but still substantial shares of children in child labour. In services, child labour includes domestic work and work in commerce, transport and motor vehicle repair. Child labour in industry comprises work in construction, mining and manufacturing. Artisanal miners may sell their output to formal mining companies or to brokers who then sell onto such companies. While agriculture has roughly equal shares of boys and girls in child labour, a greater degree of gender specialization occurs in services and industry. Outside of agriculture, girls in child labour are much more likely to be in services, including domestic work, and boys are more prone to be in industry. The world of business carries a significant responsibility for eliminating child labour from supply chains, just as it does for addressing other forms of adverse impact on children. Most major businesses are aware of the risk of child labour, although fewer are active in taking systemic steps to prevent it beyond mitigation of individual cases or taking company-focused measures. A continuing weakness is the integration of action by business to the addressing of root causes. Poorly designed business measures may displace child labour from one form of activity to another or have negative unintended consequences for broader child protection and equitable access to services. From the perspective of responsible business conduct, child labour is often the immediate focus of business or regulatory concern about adverse business impact on children. While this provides opportunities, there is also risk that action on business touch points with children can begin and end with labour. This has consequences for due diligence and impact assessment tools and methodologies, guidance tools and the design of regulation, obscuring other salient impacts that business policies and practices can have on children's rights and the measures needed to prevent or mitigate them. Other salient impacts might include adult working conditions that inhibit good parenting, violence, poverty, poor access to education and other services, family separation, gender stereotyping, exposure to harmful online content, products with negative health impacts and more besides. Some of these are also drivers of child labour. While the role of the State and the responsibilities of businesses are not the same, at a minimum business measures to address child labour should address own conduct and not undermine wider protection and prevention systems and measures. Optimally, action by business should contribute to institution and systems building and be integrated with action to address root causes. The Child Rights and Business (CRB) team in UNICEF's Private and Fundraising Partnerships Division (PFP) has developed an innovative approach to mainstreaming child rights across business policy and practice. The approach mobilizes UNICEF's unique position as a UN organization with a child rights mission and mandate and a field presence in over 190 countries.

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. For every child, innovate The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. The Office of Innovation currently co-hosts the Secretariat for the Digital Public Goods Alliance, established in follow-up to the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation. DPGs are defined as open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards and open content. In its report, the Panel recommends as 1B ?that a broad, multi-stakeholder alliance, involving the UN, create a platform for sharing digital public goods, engaging talent and pooling data sets, in a manner that respects privacy, in areas related to attaining the SDGs?. Norway, Sierra Leone, UNICEF and iSPIRT, the four initial champions are working to implement this recommendation.

Education Specialist - P3

Mali, Bamako , Bamako

 UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.And we never give up. For every child, hopeDespite Mali's efforts to commit to Education for All by 2015, the country has fallen behind in achieving this goal. To date, Mali still has 2 million children out of school, and at risk of dropping out of school (primary and lower secondary school age). In addition, demographic trends suggest that this figure will increase in the near future. While school exclusion in Mali is caused by multiple structural factors associated with demand as well as barriers on the educational supply side, the OOSC problem is magnified by a weak education management system.The complex crisis facing Mali since 2012, which includes political instability, armed conflict and recurring floods and food insecurity is adding difficulties and increasing barriers to access to education. As of March 2020, more than 1,200 schools were closed in Northern and Central regions of the country due to insecurity (threats and direct attacks against infrastructure and personals) affecting more than 370,000 children. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of all schools since mid-March 2020 (early June only the examination classes have reopened).Half of the country is affected by insecurity and the entire country by COVID-19. In this context it becomes needed to strengthen and increase the education in emergency capacity of the education team to support the COVID-19 response.The Global Partnership for Education has granted support to the government of Mali by offering a GPE grant using the World Bank as grantee.

UNICEF

Emergency Specialist - P4

United States of America, New York , New York

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfil their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. For every child, a better life The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favouritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.  Strategic office context:   As emergencies become more frequent, and resources invested in humanitarian action grow, expectations for UNICEF to deliver on the Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action (CCCs) in a timely and effective manner increase. Emergency preparedness significantly enhances UNICEF's ability to meet these expectations, not only saving lives but making our emergency operations faster, greener and more cost-efficient. Emergency preparedness at UNICEF is being increasingly mainstreamed as everyone's responsibility, beyond specific functions or typical emergency contexts.  The Risk Analysis and Preparedness Section (RAPS) in UNICEF's Office of Emergency Programmes (EMOPS) main purpose is to support UNICEF in being ready to meet the CCCs in humanitarian emergencies. Thus, it focuses on ensuring that UNICEF anticipates future events that could adversely affect children's lives and prospects, prepares for emergency responses as part of longer-term development goals and has the resources to implement preparedness actions.  UNICEF has made preparedness planning mandatory and adopted new and more systemic ways to promote it across the organization and in its work with partners. The mandatory Procedure on Preparedness for Emergency Response ensures that preparedness is mainstreamed across UNICEF. It includes mandatory Minimum Preparedness Actions and Minimum Preparedness Standards for Country Offices (CO), Regional Offices (RO) and Headquarters (HQ). The Emergency Preparedness Platform (EPP) is an online tool for implementing the procedure. The EPP helps teams analyze risks, self-assess and monitor their operational preparedness. and identify high-return actions to get ready for immediate response. EMOPS supports RO and CO emergency preparedness efforts through guidance and capacity building, technical assistance related to the EPP, as well as capacity within EMOPS to frequently scan the horizon for imminent risks.   Purpose for the job:  Under the supervision of the Chief of the Risk Analysis and Preparedness Section (RAPS), the Emergency Specialist (Preparedness) will work to strengthen global, regional and country early warning and preparedness systems and capacities to improve readiness for humanitarian response.  How can you make a difference? Under the guidance of the Section Chief, RAPS, the Emergency Preparedness Specialist will:   Initiate, lead and support policy development and capacity-building for emergency preparedness:  Act as the preparedness focal point for UNICEF, in direct support to COs and ROs, and in coordination with HQ divisions.  Review and update the emergency preparedness procedure and related guidance documents, within UNICEF with inter-agency partners. Represent UNICEF in inter-divisional discussions. seeking linkages to address risk analysis and preparedness more comprehensively as an organization. In collaboration with other divisions, develop guidance on preparedness for anticipatory action and global level catastrophes including pandemics. Support the implementation of the Humanitarian recommendations related to preparedness. Document good practices and lessons learned in preparedness. Lead the improvement and effective use of the Emergency Preparedness Platform (EPP), and related preparedness efforts: Review the EPP's fitness for purpose and develop structural improvements as needed. Develop and update EPP guidance and resources; link guidance on anticipatory action and preparedness for global emergencies to the EPP. Support COs and ROs in capacity-building efforts to promote the effective use of the EPP. Coordinate with ICTD, GSSC and others as relevant on software feature design and improvement, user acceptance testing, planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Coordinate and provide technical assistance to ROs and COs in implementing the EPP, including quality assurance. Connect analysis of CO preparedness levels/capability to UNICEF's horizon scanning and risk analysis work.  Support and monitor implementation of preparedness funds, support fundraising efforts and facilitate reporting: Support and monitor the implementation of preparedness funds allocated by EMOPS.   Collaborate with the Private Partnerships Division (PPD), the Division of Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) and other relevant actors on reporting and fundraising. Coordinate annual reporting, Executive Board updates, Consolidated Emergency Report, and other reporting requirements. Provide briefings and promote data analysis on emergency preparedness to senior management.   To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have? Advanced university degree (Master's or higher) in one of the following fields: International Relations, Public Administration/Public Policy, Humanitarian Affairs, Development, Social Sciences, or related technical field. *A first University Degree in a relevant field combined with 2 additional years of professional experience may be accepted in lieu of an Advanced University Degree.A minimum of eight (8) years of progressively responsible professional work experience in preparedness and/or humanitarian action is required. Complementary experience in international development is an advantage. Experience of work at national, regional and HQ levels is an advantage. Experience in coordinating multi-stakeholder processes.Fluency in English is required.

Sudan's children make up half of the total population, and the past two decades have seen their lives significantly improve: fewer girls and boys are dying before their fifth birthday, primary school attendance is increasing, immunization coverage is high and the country remains polio free.

This dates back to the mid-nineties when the MICS survey was thought as the comprehensive survey tool to collect children-centered MDG indicators. Since then, there have been six rounds of MICS and the current round of MICS survey, the MICS6 survey, collects more than 250 SDG directly and indirectly related indicators. This round also includes a number of innovations (new indicators related to learning outcomes, e-coli water contamination test, questions about discrimination and stigmatization, etc.). Working with national and international development partners, UNICEF has a long tradition of conducting MICS surveys in the West and Central African region. In a region where data availability to monitor the situation of children rights  is low, MICS helps avail data on children that are essential for national strategies and policies as well as for -UN (UNSDCF) and -UNICEF (CPD) planning processes.

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.And we never give up.          For every child, health?The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. Strategic office context: The incumbent will be instrumental in defining and setting the norms and standards for GS1-enabled traceability as part of both UNICEF Supply Chain Operations and in support of governments to operate and regulate GS1-enabled COVID-19 verification with a vision toward end-to-end (E2E) traceability of vaccines, medicines, nutrition, WASH and other products.
