Senior Women's Protection Advisor - P5

Ukraine, Kiev Oblast, Kyiv - United Nations Development Programme empImg

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. The legal basis for the joint programme is the Legal Annex for the Transitional Framework 2022-2023 which currently serves as a bridging document between the previous UN-Ukraine Partnership Framework (2018-2022) and the new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2024-2027). Additionally, the present Joint Programme is built upon the engagement between the Government of Ukraine and the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (SRSG-SVC) to prevent and respond to conflict-related sexual violence which was materialized through the signed 'Framework of Cooperation between the Government of Ukraine and the United Nations on the Prevention and Response to Conflict-Related Sexual Violence'. The present programme was mainly designed in response to the needs expressed by the Ukrainian authorities in the course of the development of the Framework of Cooperation on the prevention and response to conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) signed between the United Nations and the Government of Ukraine in May 2022 and the development of the related Implementation Plan (IP) which intends to coordinate the efforts related to CRSV response of a broad range of stakeholders, including international partners, UN agencies, government entities and civil society organizations. In this view, the Joint Programme will create the critical infrastructure in Ukraine that can take over this work and enable an in-person shoulder-to-shoulder collaboration with the Ukrainian government pushing the implementation of the Framework of Cooperation (FoC) forward by responding to the immediate needs that the Inter-Ministerial Working Group is experiencing in terms of human resources.  The present programme is fully aligned with CEDAW Convention provisions, its general recommendation No. 30 (2013) on women in conflict prevention, conflict and post-conflict situations and the recent concluding observations of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) Committee on the ninth periodic report of Ukraine [CEDAW/C/UKR/9] issued at the occasion of its 1921st and 1923rd meetings held in October 2022. The Joint Programme practically responds to a number of recommendations expressed by the Committee (especially paragraph 16).   DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES This position is located in the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator (UNRCO), in Kyiv. The incumbent reports directly to the Head of the UN Resident Coordinators' Office (RCO), administratively to the UNDP Resident Representative and works under the overall guidance and supervision of the UN Resident Coordinator in Ukraine.  In resolution 2467 (2019), the Security Council requested inter alia the timely deployment of women's protection advisors (WPAs) to Offices of UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinators in all relevant situations of concern, in addition to their deployment to relevant UN peace operations and special political missions. Security Council resolution 2467 is one in a series of resolutions adopted since 2008, which recognized conflict-related sexual violence as a threat to security and an impediment to the restoration of peace. WPAs advise UN senior leadership on the implementation of the operational provisions of these resolutions by ensuring the establishment and functioning of the Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Arrangements on conflict-related sexual violence (MARA), and by engaging with parties to the conflict to support their compliance with international norms through the adoption of time-bound commitments to prevent and address these crimes.  In Ukraine, the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (OSRSG-SVC) is supporting the Office of the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator/UN country team and national authorities by strengthening the collective capacity to prevent, document and respond on CRSV, in a coordinated fashion and in line with the Framework of Cooperation (FoC) signed between the SRSG and the Ukrainian DPM on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration in 2022, and with its subsequent Implementation Plan (IP). In this context, a team comprising of a Senior WPA (P5), plus dedicated WPAs in key agencies involved in the implementation of the FoC/IP, namely UNFPA, OHCHR and UN Women is being established to advise UN senior leadership, support coordination efforts and the implementation of the operational provisions of Security Council resolutions 2467, 2331, 2106, 1960, 1888 and 1820.
