UN Women

Communications Specialist - P3

Afghanistan, Kabul , Kabul

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. Afghanistan has emerged as one of the world's most complex emergencies, and the world's largest humanitarian crisis. The crisis dynamics in the country are multi-layered. Afghan people are grappling with the devastating effects of conflict, increasing poverty, economic decline and natural disasters, all of which are amplified by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this context, Afghan women and girls face unique vulnerabilities and require urgent support as gender inequality is interwoven with conflict dynamics and humanitarian needs.  While the Taliban has provided assurances on women's participation in humanitarian work and their right to study, work and marry under Islamic Law,developments on the ground reflect an altogether different reality. Many women have been instructed to stay at home for their own safety, have not been allowed to work outside the home or attend school beyond the sixth grade, have been required to have a male chaperone when leaving the house, and/or have not been allowed into public places. Furthermore, no woman has been appointed to the interim government, which was announced on 7 September 2021. These recent discriminations against women exacerbate pre-existing gender inequalities in a country that ranked 166 out of 167 countries on the Gender Development Index in 2019 and where conservative social norms are deeply rooted. UN Women has been present in Afghanistan for two decades. The criticality of UN Women's mandate in Afghanistan during this period is particularly pertinent. It is essential that Afghan women and girls can continue to shape the development of their country, and that their gains are protected. UN Women remains fully committed to supporting Afghan women and girls and to putting them at the center of the global response to the crisis in Afghanistan. UN Women's programming approach is informed by an assessment of the political, economic and humanitarian situation, risks to and capacities of partner organizations, and needs of Afghan women and girls, and will remain adaptive to respond to emerging priorities in a rapidly shifting context. UN Women is committed to monitoring the situation closely to ensure that approaches evolve in line with a dynamic and volatile context and to ensure close coordination with its partners who are supporting the implementation of UN Women's Strategic Note in Afghanistan.
