Social Policy Specialist (Preparedness, SRSP and Humanitarian Cash Transfers) P4

Switzerland, Geneva, Geneva - UNICEF

UNICEF ECARO is looking to hire a Social Policy Specialist P4, who under the supervision of the Regional Social Policy Advisor will work to improve linkages and address challenges impacting many households at once such as natural hazards, economic crises, and conflict. Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) supports country offices and the regional office to model approaches, conduct analysis and advocate for better preparedness to enable systems - existing or new social protection or emergency programmes in the region - to be ready to accommodate new populations and needs as a result of a shock2022-08-11T07:00:00ZProgramme and Policy|Social Policy553924 For every child, Deliver Eliminating child poverty and ensuring access to social protection have been recognized as critical priorities of the Agenda 2030. An explicit requirement to measure and monitor multidimensional child poverty is included under SDG 1.1.2, and similarly, the need to accelerate progress around public spending for poverty reduction under SDG 1.a.2, and SDG 1.b.1 for which UNICEF has recently become a custodian. The effective scale-up of social protection, with a specific attention to children, is included as part of ensuring access to social protection, a core target of SDG 1 (Elimination of poverty), and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities). Moreover, social protection is also an accelerator for multiple other goals. Addressing the multiple and compounding deprivations experienced by children requires an explicit commitment to understand their drivers and to scale-up comprehensive strategies to address them. The full realization of the right of children of access to social protection and adequate standard of living will not only ensure that every child lives free of poverty, but also prevent those at risk or vulnerable to poverty due to exclusion and discrimination, or facing environmental and conflict-related risks, from falling into poverty. Reducing child poverty, enhancing access to gender-transformative, and inclusive social protection, promoting efficiency, transparency and equity of financing, while strengthening capacities at subnational level, including in urban contexts, is critical. 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 for every child. UNICEF has articulated its contribution to this agenda and added value across various instruments including, the Social Protection Strategic Framework, the Call for Action on Inclusive Recovery and roadmap, the Urban Evaluation and Management Response, the social protection commitments to the Core Commitments on Children (CCS), as well as - most recently - in the new Goal Area 5 of UNICEF's Strategic Plan 2022-2025, ?Every Child has Access to Inclusive Social Protection and Lives Free of Poverty?. UNICEF's regional office for Europe and Central Asia (ECARO) is responsible for providing technical support, quality assurance, and strategic guidance to 22 country offices. The Social Policy and Economic Analysis section engages in diverse contexts ? high, middle, and low income countries; conflict-affected and stable ? providing guidance on social protection, child poverty, public finance for children, and local governance. In recent years, UNICEF ECARO has scaled up programming in the areas of shock-responsive social protection and humanitarian cash transfers. Though coverage of social protection programmes in the region is generally higher than average and social protection systems in many countries are well-developed, the region is exposed to a wide range of shocks and stressors that point to the need to improve the way systems respond during an emergency. In recent years, countries in the region have been impacted by natural disaster including earthquakes (e.g., Croatia, Turkey) and floods (e.g., Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan). COVID-19 took a toll across the region, both directly and through decreased economic activity. Conflict has impacted the region both directly (Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, Ukraine war and displacement) and indirectly (Syrian refugee crisis in Turkey, Afghan refugees in Central Asia). The current economic crisis is having a significant impact on the region, and particularly on Central Asian countries and the Caucasus. At a regional level, UNICEF has responded by scaling up capacity development and support to country staff and governments on areas related to shock response and humanitarian cash transfers. However, there are still significant gaps and support needs that require dedicated expertise. Under the general supervision and guidance of the Regional Advisor ? Social Policy and Economic Analysis, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) works to improve linkages and address challenges impacting many households at once such as natural hazards, economic crises, and conflict. Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) supports country offices and the regional office to model approaches, conduct analysis and advocate for better preparedness to enable systems - existing or new social protection or emergency programmes in the region - to be ready to accommodate new populations and needs as a result of a shock. S/he also supports country offices to design, oversee the implementation, monitor, evaluate and improve the delivery of UNICEF's humanitarian cash transfer programme(s) in the region; ensures that country teams (social policy, operations, and relevant sectors) have the appropriate skills and knowledge to design and implement HCT operations; and helps to solidify UNICEF's position as a global leader on HCT within the ECA region. How can you make a difference? The Social Policy Specialist is responsible for the following functions:1. Shock-responsive social protection2. Humanitarian cash transfers3. Cross-cutting social policy areas/operational and management tasks Specifically, the Social Policy Specialist (Social Protection in Emergencies) performs: Shock responsive social protection?

Youth-Led Action Specialist, (P-3)

United States of America, New York, New York - UNICEF

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, hope... UNICEF works with adolescents and young people to empower them with the improved knowledge, skills and capacities to successfully bring about positive change in their lives and in their communities, towards achieving results in line with UNICEF's Strategic Plan. Throughout history, engaged young people and youth-led action have been a powerful force for change. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 12 further enshrines the right of every child to express their views freely in matters affecting them and for these views to be taken seriously. In addition to the well-documented benefits to individual development and transferable life skills, young people's empowerment as change makers are crucial investments because they lead to long-term positive societal outcomes for all children. Around the world, we see young people who have used enhanced confidence and skills to strengthen civil society and increase the accountability of their communities, governments and corporations. This has resulted in more relevant and effective programs and policies on education, mental health, climate change, protection, and other matters in development and humanitarian situations; young people's action has also enhanced inclusion, social cohesion, violence prevention, and contributed to peacebuilding. At the local level, we see adolescents and young people advocating for and making daily changes for the better in their families, in peer groups, in schools, and in their communities. With this position, UNICEF's Adolescent Development and Participation (ADAP) section as part of the Education/ADAP team is accelerating efforts to scale country and regional-level youth-led action, across sectors, in UNICEF countries and regions.

This position will be responsible for leading and/or contributing to these efforts to accelerate meaningful and safe youth-led action at the global, regional and country levels. The focus is on ensuring young people are capacitated and supported with the knowledge and skills to progress along their action journeys and succeed as change agents. Within the scope of youth-led action, this position will have a particular focus on youth-led advocacy and mechanisms to connect young people to other young changemakers and allies. Efforts under this position will advance youth-led action in a select set of UNICEF's strategic priorities: climate change, mental health, the prevention and reduction of harmful practices, education transformation, adolescent sexual and reproductive health and HIV, and young people as changemakers in humanitarian settings. Efforts will include both youth-led action in these specific priority areas, as well as a focused effort on bringing together youth-led action that speaks to the inter-sectorality of these issues as they impact the daily lives of adolescents and young people (i.e., the intersection of climate change and mental health for youth advocates; youth-led action on the prevention and reduction of harmful practices and ASRH; youth-led action for education transformation in humanitarian and peacebuilding contexts, etc). The incumbent will be expected to liaise closely with UNICEF teams and country offices as collaborators and partners and help build and maintain successful internal and external partnerships for the scale-up of UNICEF's youth-led action initiatives.

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, love 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. Therefore, the focus on equity is 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. Mexico is a country of origin, transit, and destination for migrant children from the countries of northern Central America, seeking safety and opportunity in Mexico or the United States. These are children fleeing from gang-related and gender-based violence, organized crime, extortion, poverty and limited access to education and social services. They have been repeatedly exposed to threats, intimidation, and insecurity in a lawless environment. Many also want to be reunited with their families who reside in the United States. UNICEF is supporting state and local authorities in the rapid identification, registration and care of unaccompanied and separated children and adolescents who have entered the country or are moving through Mexico on both the northern and southern borders. UNICEF is providing technical assistance to child protection, nutrition and education authorities to implement standard procedures and case management.

UNICEF is also a key actor providing mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) to displaced children and their families, currently housed in different shelters across the country, through recreational and sports activities with the support of implementing partners. Mexico is also a country prone to emergencies. Mexico's complex landscape, extensive coastline and unique geological and climatic environment make it vulnerable to a range of natural disasters, including earthquakes and tsunamis, floods and landslides, volcanic eruptions and meteorological hazards. Each of these primary hazards is in turn associated with a number of secondary hazards (e.g., flooding from tropical cyclone rainfall or landslides from earthquakes) that affect children.
