Gender and Climate Finance Specialist - P4

Bangladesh, Dhaka, Dhaka - United Nations Development Programme
Nonprofit/Community/Social Services
Other

  Background   UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence. UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks. UNDP works to eradicate poverty and reduce inequalities through the sustainable development of nations, in more than 170 countries and territories. The Regional Bureau of Asia and Pacific (RBAP) has the responsibility to guide and support 24 Country Offices in achieving the above objectives. RBAP's Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) supports countries and UNDP Country Offices in the Asia-Pacific region on various development issues, including the governance of climate change finance.  In Asia and the Pacific, UNDP is increasingly being requested to provide governance related services that support governments in articulating their response to climate change. These services include strengthening governments institutional and administrative frameworks to be able to deliver integrated climate finance policies and programming within a range of sectors; strengthening governments planning and budgeting processes and to ensuring more effective tracking of climate-relevant initiatives and accounting transparently for climate related services and mobilization and use of climate relevant finance; strengthening parliament's and civil society's roles in holding governments to account for their response to climate change and supporting local governments in integrating climate related services into their programming.  In light of the gendered division of labour in key activities impacted by climate change and differentiated social norms and inequities related to income, land rights and access to credit, and political participation there is a growing recognition of the importance of ensuring that the needs, priorities, and interests of all people, including women, the poor, youth, and minorities and others who are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts are included and that  they participate and have a voice in shaping in the governance of climate change response across the stages of policy formulation, programme implementation and processes of accountability.  To respond to the growing demands and imperatives, UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) has established a multi-disciplinary team structure which involves close collaboration with UNDP's Nature, Climate and Energy (NCE) in support of accelerated financing for nationally determined contributions (NDCs), and the Gender and other teams in support of gender responsive approaches to the SDGs and climate action. It is increasingly looking at innovative arrangements to have decentralized regional capacities in different parts of Asia-Pacific to deliver on the above. The SIDA-supported ‘Strengthening the Governance of Climate Finance to Enhance Gender Equality' (GCCF, 2017-22) project, which will soon transition to the Climate Finance Network (CFN), aims  to collaboratively support countries to ensure not only increased financing and budgets to address climate change, but to do so in ways that are gender-responsive and socially inclusive. The project has a regional component covering the Asia-Pacific region, and a country component focusing on South-East and South Asia (currently, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, and Thailand and three countries in the Pacific). The work of the CFN will be organized around 6 workstreams, one of which is gender and social inclusion, which apart from being an independent workstream will also inform the work of the other 5 workstreams, which are climate change aligned budgeting and planning, tax and innovative climate finance, transparency and accountability, direct access to international climate finance and modelling of climate impact on economic growth.   The regional Gender and Climate Finance Specialist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, is responsible for providing regional advisory services for the GCCF/CFN in the Asia Pacific region and supporting the climate and gender portfolio in Bangladesh. The specialist is expected to spend 40% of his/her time with the Bangladesh country office as follows: i) leading the GCCF project in Bangladesh, particularly on gender and social inclusion aspects ii) providing advisory assistance to UNDP Bangladesh to strengthen the integration of gender and social inclusion in the design and implementation of the national climate change action plan and agenda. The remaining 60% of his/her time will go towards strengthening the Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) component of the regional GCCF project in the above mentioned 7 targeted countries. The Gender and Climate Finance Specialist will be a full member of the multidisciplinary regional SDG Finance Team, reporting to the Governance and Public Finance Management Specialist (Programme Manager of the GCCF Project) with a matrixed reporting line to the UNDP Bangladesh Deputy Resident Representative. He/she will also work closely with the Regional Gender Advisor and Gender Team at the Bangkok Regional Hub. As part of the regional support function, the specialist will contribute to the Bangkok Regional Hub's services on guidance development and advisory support on gender and social inclusion for climate action and   support the delivery of the GCCF programme as part of the overall BRH's Regional Policy and Programme Support (RPPS) team's Asia Regional Programme and RBAP Business Plan priorities alongside other relevant regional programs and BRH services.

  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 full 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, care   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. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination. 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 accelerating the equitable development of nations to attain SDG.   How can you make a difference?   You will support UNICEF effort to ensure that the rights of girls and women to live free from GBV are fulfilled. The focus of the program is to support Government, Civil Society Organizations and communities to prevent GBV by addressing its underlying conditions and drivers; to mitigate risk of GBV across humanitarian actors and to ensure that survivors have access to a comprehensive set of quality services. Our intervention is gradually transitioning from emergency to development hence there is a need to shift focus towards greater engagement with government on the institutional strengthening across mandated sectors both for prevention and response. Your expertise will support the process in addition to serving as primary focal point for all GBV related issues including support to multiple coordination forums e.g. GBV Sub-Cluster, RTAP, GBVIMS Taskforce, MARA (SCR 1960), and JTWG on CRSV; and liaison with the Government key ministries, other UN agencies on prioritizing and mainstreaming GBV prevention and response. You will also serve as UNICEF alternate PSEA national focal point role including UNICEF representation at the UN joint PSEA Taskforce coordination forum.   To qualify as a champion for every child you will have?   - An advanced university degree in one of the following fields is required: international development, human rights, psychology, sociology, international law, or another relevant social science field.
