Description of Responsibilities/ Scope of Work

 

Scope of consultancy

 

To support member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda, UN Women’s Flagship Programme Initiative, “Making Every Woman and Girl Count (MEWG)” aims to affect a radical shift in the availability, accessibility and use of data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Asia-Pacific regional component of the MEWG Programme encompasses a multi-year and multi-country programme of work with particular focus on implementing and supporting regional and country-specific activities in Asia and the Pacific. This includes work in the three inter-related key areas: (1)Building a supportive policy and institutional environment for the localization and effective monitoring of the SDGs; (2)Increasing the quality, comparability and regularity of gender statistics to address national data gaps and meet reporting commitments under the SDGs; and (3)Ensuring that gender statistics are accessible to users in governments, civil society, academia and the private sector, to strengthen adequate demand for their production.

Within the context of implementing the programme in Asia and the Pacific, and with the ultimate goal of making the methodology on measuring the gender-environment nexus more user-friendly for countries to enhance the quality, availability and use of gender-environment statistics, UN Women is looking to hire a consultant that will support with adjusting the syntax for implementing the model questionnaire on gender and the environment in CAPI, monitor the data collection (quality checks), and support both Kiribati and Cambodia with the data cleaning and data analysis.
