How can you make a difference:
Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations impacting negatively to the desired fulfilment of women’s and girls’ empowerment and development. and therefore a threat to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. While there have been efforts to address and eliminate Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) and Harmful Practices (HP) in Papua New Guinea, progress remains slow and uneven, with fragmented approaches. It is clear that the elimination of all forms of SGBV and HP is intrinsically connected to transformation of gender and socio-cultural norms including those related to women’s sexuality and reproduction; and to improving access to comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health information and services especially for women and girls.
In response to this, the European Union and the United Nations initiated the Spotlight Initiative, a global partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) focused on efforts to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in support of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. The initiative comes with the highest level of commitment globally as it will be governed by the UN Deputy Secretary General and the Vice President of the EU Commission. The Initiative provides a model under UN Reform for partnerships among key players encompassing participating countries, development partners, civil society, and the UN to deliver on the SDGs in a comprehensive manner leveraging comparative advantages and expertise of various Agencies.
In Papua New Guinea, UNFPA will be one of the UN Agencies (alongside UNDP, UNICEF and UNWOMEN) overseeing the implementation of the Spotlight Initiative guided by the ICPD Programme of Action and the 2018 – 2021 Strategic Planning which focuses on three transformative outcomes: end gender-based violence and other harmful practices; ending preventable maternal deaths; and ending unmet need for family planning.
The GBV Data Management Analyst is a person who inspires and delivers high impact and sustained results; a principled and ethical staff, who exemplifies human rights norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction; a staff who is transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commits to deliver excellence in programme results.
