UNDP Vietnam is seeking for 01 qualified Vietnamese firm/institute/organization for Strengthen resilience and adaptation of Ethnic Minority Women impacted by COVID 19 in Viet Nam in Bac Kan and Dak Nong provinces.
Viet Nam like many other countries in the world, has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic, together with these stringent measures, has had major multidimensional impacts on the lives of all populations in Viet Nam, especially children, ethnic minority women and other vulnerable groups. Economic impact due to shut down of businesses, dampened demands, and supply chain disruptions is serious, which in turn drive many social impacts. The social impact and loss of livelihoods are an immediate primary concern, and no time should be spared to help support vulnerable people.
Vulnerable Ethnic Minority women, their households, household businesses and cooperatives (that the UNDP-UN Women supported “Assessment of COVID-19 socio-economic impact on vulnerable households and enterprises in Viet Nam” identified as “disproportionately impacted by COVID-19”) are supported to become more resilient and adaptive in the fast-changing COVID-19 context, by ensuring that they can equally access the cash transfer and support needed to protect their livelihoods and build a sustainable and resilient recovery in the new normal of a prolong health crisis.
The overall objective of the consultancy service is to strengthen resilience and adaptation of Ethnic Minority Women impacted by COVID 19 in Viet Nam in Bac Kan and Dak Nong province and propose recommendations for review/adjustment of national regulations/policies accordingly that support similar local initiatives for sustainable poverty reduction and social economic development as technical inputs for designing and implementing the National Targeted Program on Socioeconomic Development in Ethnic Minority and Mountainous Areas in period 2021 – 2030 (NTPSEDEMA).
