Job Description

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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.

UN Women works across aspects of governance that can most readily accelerate progress towards gender equality. Also help bridge disconnects between national development strategies and gender equality plans. To reform public institutions, we support steps such as cultivating the capacities of public officials to integrate gender equality measures in plans and budgets and select performance indicators for oversight.

Duties and Responsibilities

UN Women supports humanitarian aid providers to help orient their policies and coordination mechanisms towards achieving gender equality. The rapid gender assessment (RGA) is a tool developed to provide a step-by-step guidance on how to undertake the quick field data collection and gender analysis at the initial stage of the emergency. It allows better coordination with other humanitarian actors for a common understanding of who among the population is affected by the crisis, what they need and what humanitarian aid providers can do to support them. So that this time is to provide the capacity strengthening to the GBV AoR Gender Based Violence (Area of Responsibilities) led by UNFPA in

3 States as Southern Shan, Northern Shan and Kayah.

The RGA is contributes to the thinking about the gender dimensions of the crisis and gives initial situation building that improves humanitarian response. it ultimately informs on the effectiveness of the humanitarian work on targeted response and meets the needs of all those impacted by emergencies, especially the most vulnerable. Rapid gender analysis takes place during the assessment phase and in the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) phase, with information collected throughout the program cycle. Data collected through the RGA informs the gender analysis highlighting the different effects of emergencies/crisis on women, girls, men, and boys and verifies that the humanitarian response meets their distinct needs and priorities. The knowledge, basic skills and understanding of an RGA is an important capacity among humanitarian aid providers that UN Women intends to support for cluster/sector Gender Focal Points, Women-Lead, and Women’s Rights organizations’ to be able to meaningfully engage and participate in humanitarian action.
