Gender, Climate and Security Specialist - P3

Thailand, Bangkok, Bangkok - 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. Based on UN legislative mandates and the UN Women Strategic Plan, the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is tasked with providing strategic programme development, policy / technical advisory services and quality assurance support to Multi Country Offices and Country Offices. It undertakes or coordinates regional research and data analysis; advises on norms, policies and strategies for achieving the internationally and regionally agreed goals related to gender equality and women's empowerment. It acts as a knowledge hub at the regional level, collecting evidence on progress and emerging issues and sharing knowledge on innovative approaches and lessons learned in implementation. Building on twenty years of experience in the area of governance and women, peace and security (WPS), the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific leads knowledge development and coordinates implementation in areas of gender and peacebuilding, women's access to justice, social cohesion, and cybersecurity. The office has also been implementing a joint regional programme with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) called EmPower: Women for Climate-Resilient Societies (Strengthening Human Rights and Gender through Climate Change Action and Disaster Risk Reduction) which is aimed at addressing the key drivers of vulnerability by strengthening capacities of women from at-risk communities, civil society, and government institutions. Over twenty years of implementing the WPS agenda in the disaster-prone context of the Asia-Pacific region has demonstrated that women and their communities often experience a range of intersecting security risks due to deeply embedded social inequalities,  conflict, disasters, and climate-related risks, which impact women and girls in specific ways. Within this context, women and girls face additional and compounded obstacles to accessing justice and achieving their full rights. Moreover, women peacebuilders face added risks as they are frequently on the frontlines of responding and adapting to the compounded crises. The focus on women's participation and leadership in sustaining peace and building resilience must reflect this full spectrum of regional experiences. The UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific is committed to continue strengthening the regional knowledge base on the gendered impact and interlinkages between disasters, climate change, and insecurity in the region. The office will also support communities and local and national government stakeholders to address climate-related security risks through the use of rights-based gender-responsive actions with a strong focus on women's participation and leadership, including of young women, Indigenous women, women of diverse SOGIESC, and women with disabilities, especially in the most affected and fragile contexts in the Asia Pacific region. To further establish and strengthen this area of work, the office seeks to hire a Gender, Climate, and Security Specialist.

WASH (Climate Change) Specialist - P3

  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.

And we never give up.   For every child,  Results The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the Organization does ? in programmes, 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.

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.

Senior Environmental Specialist - GG

Peru, Lima, Lima - World Bank Group

The World Bank Group (WBG) is one of the largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries; a unique global partnership of five institutions dedicated to ending extreme poverty, increasing shared prosperity and promoting sustainable development. With 189 member countries and more than 120 offices worldwide, we work with public and private sector partners, investing in groundbreaking projects and using data, research, and technology to develop solutions to the most urgent global challenges. For more information, visit [www.worldbank.org](http://www.worldbank.org/)   LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN REGION The WBG serves 30 client countries in the Latin America and the Caribbean Region (LCR). Clients range from large rapidly growing middle and upper-middle income clients to IDA countries, to small Caribbean states, and to one fragile state. Despite immense resources and dynamic societies, deep inequalities persist in most LCR countries, with nearly a quarter of the Region's people living in poverty. The region is extremely exposed and vulnerable to many natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods that can ravage entire regions, and devastating hurricanes.  It is also among the most vulnerable due to high population density in the areas where these disasters strike and the need for better risk management practices.   ENVIRONMENT NATURAL RESOURCES & BLUE ECONOMY GLOBAL PRACTICE The sustainable management of the environment and natural resources is vital for economic growth and human wellbeing. When managed well, renewable natural resources, watersheds, productive landscapes, and seascapes can provide the foundation for sustained inclusive growth, food security and poverty reduction. For more information: https://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/environment  To advance this agenda, the Environment Natural Resources & Blue Economy Global Practice (ENB GP)  has five key business lines consisting of lending and non-lending services in (1) Forests, Watersheds and Sustainable Landscapes (Green Business line); (2) Marine, Coastal, Aquatic Resources and Ocean Health (Blue Economy Business line); (3) Pollution Management and Environmental Health (Pollution Management Business line); (4) Environmental Economics, Policies and Institutions Business line, and (5) Environmental Risk Management Business line:  delivery of effective environmental risk management and sustainability by managing risk at the project level and creating opportunities to advance sustainable development. This includes provision of high-quality and timely services to investment projects across the Bank, including those under the previous safeguard policies and the effective implementation of the Environment and Social Framework (ESF) that has been in effect for all new investment projects since October 1, 2018. The ESF responds to new and varied development demands and challenges that have arisen over time. It brings the World Bank's environmental and social (E&S) protections into closer harmony with those of other development institutions, and makes important advances in areas such as transparency, non-discrimination, social inclusion, public participation, and accountability ? including expanded roles for grievance redress mechanisms. The framework helps to ensure social inclusion, and explicitly references human rights in the overarching vision statement. The ESF is made up of the World Bank's vision for sustainable development, the World Bank's Environmental and Social Policy for Investment Project Financing, and ten Environmental and Social Standards (ESS). These set out the mandatory requirements for the World Bank, in relation to the projects it supports through Investment Project Financing (IPF), and for Borrowers. The activities of staff working on environmental safeguards/environmental risk management within the ENB GP include leading or contributing to analytical work and policy dialogue, as well as supporting lending operations and building client capacity across all sectors in areas related to environmental sustainability, environmental risk and impact assessment and management, pollution prevention, control and management, resource efficiency, occupational and community health and safety, biodiversity conservation, stakeholder engagement, among other issues.    Unit Context The Environment, Natural Resources and Blue Economy Unit for LCR has about 45 staff.  Close to half of these staff work on environmental safeguards and environmental risk management, with the remainder working primarily on lending and knowledge products.  Also, about half are based in country offices and half in Washington DC with frequent travel to the region.  The skills and expertise of these staff include: economics, pollution management, forestry, fisheries management, landscapes management, watershed management, and natural areas protection.     THE POSITION This position will be based in Lima, Peru and will be primarily responsible to support the environmental risk management business line in Peru and across the Andes Country Management Unit (CMU), which includes also Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile. The Senior Environmental Specialist will work under supervision of the ENB Practice Manager for LCR. The successful candidate may also be requested to provide occasional support to other unit activities, such as ENB sector lending projects as well as country and sector strategy development, client dialogue and analytical work. The position term is 3 years, with possible extension up to 4 years.      DUTIES AND ACCOUNTABILITIES   The Senior Environment Specialist will have the following key responsibilities. - As the World Bank assigned Environmental Specialist on specific investment projects, both in Peru as well as in other countries of the Andes CMU as needed, contribute during both project preparation and implementation to ensure that environmental issues are addressed throughout the project cycle, by undertaking careful environmental analysis, due diligence and supervision related to Bank safeguard policy and/or ESF requirements and associated good practices.  Work with the assigned Social Specialist to ensure timely and accurate disclosure and stakeholder engagement for all required environmental assessment and management instruments, and appropriate design and implementation of project grievance mechanisms. -

With 189 member countries and more than 120 offices worldwide, we work with public and private sector partners, investing in groundbreaking projects and using data, research, and technology to develop solutions to the most urgent global challenges. For more information, visit [www.worldbank.org](http://www.worldbank.org/)   The WBG consists of five specialized institutions: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), the International Development Association (IDA), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). IBRD and IDA are commonly known as the World Bank, which is organized into six client-facing Regional Vice-Presidencies, several corporate functions, and ? as of July 1, 2014 ? has introduced fourteen Global Practices (GPs) as well as five Cross-Cutting Solution Areas (CCSAs) to bring best-in-class knowledge and solutions to regional and country clients.The Adaptation Fund is an innovative financing mechanism set up by the Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), with the purpose of financing concrete climate change adaptation projects and programmes in developing country Parties, serving the landmark Paris Agreement. At the request of the COP, the GEF is providing secretariat services to the Adaptation Fund Board (the Board), through a dedicated team. Since becoming fully operational in 2010, the Board has approved over 130 projects/programmes in over 100 vulnerable countries, for a total funding of US $865 million. The Adaptation Fund was the first international climate fund to enable direct access to its resources by developing countries' national organizations. Through direct access, National Implementing Entities are able to directly access financing and manage all aspects of climate adaptation and resilience projects, from design through implementation to monitoring and evaluation. In 2014, the Adaptation Fund launched the Readiness Programme for Climate Finance, designed to capture and share the growing experiences of AF direct access and other climate finance in order to strengthen the capacity of national and regional entities to receive and manage climate financing. Since 2018, the Adaptation Fund has been implementing its first medium-term strategy, for years 2018-2022, which continues the Fund's focus on concrete adaptation action implemented through high-quality projects but with added emphasis on innovation and learning/knowledge management. As a consequence of these new areas of work and related funding modalities offered to developing countries, the portfolio of projects and programmes has significantly diversified. The portfolio of concrete adaptation projects has also grown, in calendar years 2019-2020 alone, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, by more than 50 per cent. The Adaptation Fund is governed by its Board, which normally meets twice a year. The Board consists of two subcommittees, one of which ? Project and Programme Review Committee (PPRC) ? is dedicated to reviewing project/programme proposals as well as policy proposals designed to support programming. Currently, the Adaptation Fund secretariat runs three project and programme review cycles a year, coordinated by Senior Climate Change Specialist who leads the Programming team. The team is responsible for: managing the project/programme review cycle process, including communication, liaising with and support to the Fund's implementing entities, Board and AF's NGO community, as well as other stakeholders; technical review process and within specific timeframes, assuring compliance with criteria and Fund's policies are met ? notably, the Environmental and Social Policy and Gender Policy; operations with relevant World Bank systems and Fund's website (ensuring transparency); support in the preparation of project agreements; and carrying out the administrative and financial due diligence. The Programming team also regularly carries out quality review and improvement efforts, including training and clinics for the technical reviewers, trainings and webinars for the national implementing entities, some of which is under the aegis of the Readiness workstream and in collaboration with the Readiness team, and e-learning packages, in collaboration with the Knowledge Management (KM) team. The Programming team takes leadership in organizing the PPRC meetings and materials, jointly with the Results-Based Management (RBM) team, innovation team, and other secretariat's teams, as needed. Together the teams collaborate on, among other, policy work, pertaining to the project/programme review process and post approval processes, which include monitoring and reporting.
