The Gender Team of the Bureau for Development Policy (BDP) is the institutional anchor of UNDP’s work on gender equality and women’s empowerment. As the UN’s lead development agency, with extensive field presence, UNDP facilitates the integration of gender equality in the work of its Country Offices through core and non-core fund investments and has initiated and implemented numerous innovative initiatives that support program county work on gender equality and women’s empowerment. UNDP's work on gender is guided by the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA), Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the frameworks provided by the Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The UNDP Gender Team works to implement gender equality as a core objective of UNDP through a two-pronged approach (i) mainstreaming gender in all core practices; and, (ii) dedicated interventions that empower women and promote gender equality. Working across a range of advocacy and programming activities at the global, regional, national and community level, UNDP is actively engaged in various gender and climate change issues.

In collaboration with UN agencies, intergovernmental and non-governmental and civil society organizations, UNDP has also been working towards ensuring gender equality principles are integrated more fully into the outcome documents of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations, as well as the operations of major climate funds. UNDP’s work has included providing technical expertise and recommendations to governments; training national gender and climate change experts; and integrating gender concerns into national climate change policies and programmes across several countries.

The UNDP Gender Team is also supporting and implementing a number of related programmes and projects on energy, women’s green business and related sustainable development themes. As part of this work, the UNDP Gender Team is providing ongoing support and technical inputs to the implementation of the Rio+20 Outcome and the Post-2015 Development Framework.

 

 

 

To support UNDP’s work in these areas of gender equality, climate change, and sustainable development, and achieving the goals of the Gender Equality Strategy, the UNDP Gender Team environment cluster is seeking at least 8 Technical Expert(s) who specialize in the following thematic areas to be retained under a Long Term Agreement (LTA) contract to provide expert inputs as and when required:
