UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 International Consultant for Women and Peacekeeping in ASEAN countries.
After several years of participating in UN peacekeeping operations, Vietnam has deployed 40 turns of individual military officers to UN missions in South Sudan and Central Africa and 02 rounds of Level 2 Hospital in South Sudan. Vietnam deployed the very first female officer to the UN Mission in South Sudan in 2017. The ratio of Vietnam female peacekeepers is more than 16% (12/70). This proportion is impressive in comparison with UN’s expectation (15%). This is a positive step of Vietnam, in line with the UNSC Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.
Even before starting involvement in the UN peacekeeping operations, Vietnam has already demonstrated commitment to UN initiatives related to women, peace and security and prevention of sexual abuse and exploitation. In the coming time, Vietnam is committed to increasing the rate of women participating in UN peacekeeping operations, as well as raising awareness for peacekeepers on gender issues in UN peacekeeping operations.
Being the non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) 2020-2021 and ASEAN Chair in 2020, Vietnam is very keen on sharing its initial success and creating forums/platforms for experiences/initiatives sharing in promoting women in UN peacekeeping operations. It is worth noting that Vietnam has identified “Women, peace and security” as one of the seven priorities for its term as member of the UNSC. In addition, as Vietnam and Japan will co-chair the Expert Working Group (EWG) on UN Peacekeeping Operations within ASEAN Plus Defence Ministers Meeting (ADMM+) during 2020-2023, topics related to women participation in UN peacekeeping operations will figure prominently in the EWG’s working agenda.
