Regional Director, Asia and the Pacific - D1

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. The Asia and the Pacific region contains some of the world's most powerful economies?and two-thirds of its poorest people. Rich in political, cultural and other forms of diversity, it faces common challenges from stark socioeconomic disparities, including those linked to gender. Many countries have made formal commitments to gender equality, but implementation is undercut by a variety of factors, from limited resources to inconsistencies in upholding laws to upheaval from natural disasters. Integral to Asia's economic boom, women make up nearly half of business owners. Aside from East Asia, however, they have a higher unemployment rate than men, almost twice the global average. In the majority of countries, migration remains a primary means for securing a livelihood, with female migrant workers often equalling or exceeding the number of men on the move. As is true for employment in general, however, many end up in poorly paid jobs with no protections, especially in care and domestic work.

Director, Health Programme - D2

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 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,  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.

All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the global development network of the United Nations system and is working in 177 countries and territories around the world with its Headquarters based in New York. The UNDP Strategic Plan (2022-2025) describes the three key directions of change to help 100 million people escape multidimensional poverty and 500 million gain access to clean energy. UNDP propose to support countries to undertake structural transformation, ensure no one is left behind and build resilience. Within the resilience direction of change, UNDP will place emphasis on 6 signature solutions of poverty and inequality, governance, resilience, environment, energy and gender equality. These solutions will be enabled by development financing, digitalisation and strategic innovation. One of these key innovations is a recognition that climate-resilient water is a driver of economic development, is the basis of the clean energy-climate resilient water nexus and is an essential component of multidimensional poverty reduction and resilience. Globally, the climate crisis has seen an increase in droughts and floods which destroy climate-resilient water infrastructure and demand investment in innovative technological solutions that can deliver climate-resilient water infrastructure for economic development. In the African sub-continent there have been 40 droughts or floods since 1980 and this is a 6 fold increase from the previous 40 year period. These droughts and floods force communities to migrate in search of climate-resilient water for livelihoods, climate-resilient water for health and climate-resilient water for prosperity. The UNDP Africa regional plan therefore, promotes the 4 Ps (Planet, Prosperity, Peace and People) and climate-resilient water for development is key to the protection of the African people, African planet, African prosperity and reduction in climate-resilient water driven conflict and increased peace. The UNDP Africa Regional Resilience Hub and specifically the Africa Borderlands Centre and programme provides a model to demonstrate the interface between the 6 signature solutions of the environment, resilience, governance, energy, gender equality and reduced inequality. Borderlands are home to more than 270 million people in Africa and are the territorial margins of nation-states, regions where border contact is a central feature of economic and political life. The borderland communities are left behind and have the lowest levels of access to social services such as climate-resilient water, energy, healthcare, education and livelihoods. The African Union, UNDP and partners have positioned UNDP as the "thought leader" in essential social sectors in the borderlands and to conduct research, produce data, and design programmes that extend across borders, and treat these regions as economic and political units in their own right. Central to this aim is ensuring climate-resilient water for economic development. Due to the location of borderland locations, access to climate-resilient water resources, climate-resilient water for energy and climate-resilient water supply requires intensive investment and results in the economic marginalisation of many climate-resilient water users. This in turn causes instability, lack of security/stability,  prosperity, gender inequality and reduced resilience. UNDP has identified that the SDG targets may not be met in Africa without addressing the social sector needs of the borderland communities. SDG6 and the need for climate-resilient water solutions have been identified by the Africa Borderlands Centre as a critical area and where greater strategic thought leadership is needed.     Duties and Responsibilities   Under the supervision of the Team leader of the Africa Borderlands Centre, the Senior Water Resources Adviser is responsible for the formulation of a cohesive corporate climate-resilient water normative framework and signature interventions for Africa borderlands programmatic to promote resilience.
