VACANCIES: FIELD SPECIALISTS (2 VACANCIES), UN WOMEN, BISHKEK/OSH, KYRGYZSTAN. DEADLINE: JANUARY 27, 2014 Background UN Women was established by GA resolution 64/289 of 2 July 2010 on system-wide coherence, with a mandate to assist Member States and the UN system to progress more effectively and efficiently towards the goal of achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women. Since 2001 UN Women (previously as UNIFEM) in Kyrgyzstan has been implementing catalytic initiatives on promoting women's economic, political and social rights. In 2012 a full Country Office was established. The two positions are in support of UN Women's Building a Constituency for Peace Project that is funded under the United Nations Peace and Recovery Facility, PRF which in turn supports the Peace-building Priority Plan confirmed jointly by the Kyrgyz Republic and the United Nations System. The project is commencing in January 2014 and due to complete in June 2016. It works in 23 mainly remote and conflict prone municipalities and towns of ten districts of six provinces of the Kyrgyz Republic.
  3. 3. State partners include the State Agency of Religious Affairs under the Presidential Administration and Ministry of the Interior, as well as project area district administrations and municipalities. Likely Implementing Partners include the Rural Advisory Service Jalalabad (RAS) and the Foundation of Tolerance International (FTI). UN Women Kyrgyzstan will directly implement the second component of the project and the focus of the assignment is on this component. However, UN Women will take a direct interest in the implementation, monitoring, supervision and guidance of the two other components and the incumbent will also spend significant time in backstopping these. The project aims at facilitating a higher level of respect for the rule of law and rights, also overcoming divisions in society by • • • engaging youth in activities that build life- and livelihood skills; sensitizing law enforcement and justice sector personnel to human rights in particular of young men and women; building understanding and cooperation between various stakeholders including officials and religious leaders. The project works towards promoting gender equality by involving - especially young - women in all aspects of public life and economic activity, and by building support systems to ensure their rights. The project focusses on bridging ethnic divisions by promoting equal opportunity regardless of ethnic origin, by facilitating side-by- side leaning of life- and livelihood skills and by actively building knowledge of how to be a good citizen based on respecting diversity. Activities prepare students from age 15 upwards to make a decent living from the family land plot. Students learn how a market economy works and the benefit its principles offer the industrious and skilled person. Secondary school students develop life-skills that enable them to secure their rights and those of their peers. Our project aims at enabling them to actively participate in community affairs and to help solve problems affecting their schools and communities. In addition the project aims to provide a platform for diverse stakeholders in municipalities to jointly understand and address problems and conflicts affecting their community. Civil servants and especially security sector personnel are trained to prevent women from being radicalized or criminalized by anti-state elements. 3,000 9th graders of various ethnicities in 30 schools in rural areas are able to effectively use scarce land resources to build successful livelihoods and understand the benefit of joint action, also across ethnic divides. Both men and women are involved in productive agriculture in a market economy as an alternative to poverty induced migration. By knowing about land and water rights conflict over land and pasture use, as well as irrigation water will be largely avoided. Students will learn how to register a business with local self-government and pay the required fees and taxes, and how to ensure equal access of women to natural resources and entrepreneurship (RAS/UNW) 4,000 secondary school students of the 9th, 10th and 11th grade in 30 schools are knowledgeable about human rights of young women and men, as well as gender equality. Students will learn how to conduct a conflict analysis and take action to address the causes, working with law enforcement, local self-government (LSG) institutions and the state towards remedying the situation. By documenting duty bearer performance on upholding the law based on specific cases relating to the infringement of women's human rights and on local conflict (including for instance extortion rackets at school) youth will be empowered to play the role of active citizens in safeguarding the constitutional order (UNW) 460 key individuals across 23 municipalities, half of them LSG, aiyl kenesh members or law enforcement personnel, the other half community leaders such as religious leaders, aksakal court judges, women peace committees etc. are sensitized to human rights of young women and men, including religious rights. They are aware of their duties to protect human rights, justice and peace and they are able to conduct a conflict analysis of their community. They will be able to come up with an action plan for what they are going to change towards justice, lasting peace and the equal involvement of women. The implementation of those action plans will be jointly monitored. A key role is played by local self-government to convene all stakeholders towards preventing, mitigating and transforming conflicts on their territory which will lead to increased trust by citizens in LSG (FTI/UNW) In the third project component UN Women plans to train a wide spectrum of state and non-state stakeholders in conflict prone communities on conflict analysis, -prevention, and -transformation. This activity is complimented by involving community gatekeepers and local self-government in mechanism that will both advise on the law and mediate conflict, as well as to support the formation of local conflict prevention and transformation networks. These networks will advocate for conflict resolution not at the cost of justice as is often the case when aksakal courts 'rule', but by upholding justice and the law, and by guiding conflict parties to conform to the law. Capacity built at community level in the area of informal legal assistance and on conflict prevention will focus on the rights of women and the prevention and mediation of domestic conflict at community level - in accordance with the domestic violence law and other laws. In preparation of the project UN Women in December 2013 conducted activities that support women in having recourse to better services through enhanced capacity of elected female local councilors and local self-
  4. 4. government heads in 20 conflict-prone municipalities across the country, with three quarters in the proposed project area. Beneficiaries were trained to advocate for the rights of women and an improved scope of women's political participation. Project activities will contribute to increased effectiveness of women in local decisionmaking in the area of Women Peace and Security and on advocating for ensuring implementation of CEDAW; to building knowledge among elected female officials at local self-government level about their duties to the citizenry; and on the tools to effectively address gender equality shortcomings. In 2013 UN Women launched a project funded by the European Union on "Promoting Gender Justice and Empowerment of Young Women". While Kyrgyz Republic law ensures young persons and women's rights, the reality of the justice sector often enforcing the law selectively encourages widespread rights abuses and a culture of impunity where the vulnerable is at the mercy of the powerful. The project strengthens the capacity of women and men to effectively advocate for gender equality, to monitor effective implementation of gender justice and to promote equal engagement of young women in community level conflict resolution and gender justice after having been qualified under the project to doing so. The project engages youth and youth organizations to advocate for gender justice, and build their capacity to mediate community-level conflicts, thus contributing to mitigating tensions and resolving conflicts at school and university and within their community. These activities coincide with activities planned under the second component of the PRF project. With the aim to ensure effective implementation of the PRF-funded project, UN Women Kyrgyzstan office plans to contract two Field Specialists who will be responsible for project related support which features regular extended field missions to the project area requiring overnight stays in villages. A specific focus shall also be given to lessons-learned documentation and coordination support to national implementing partners. The Field Specialist promotes a client-oriented approach consistent with UN Women rules and regulations and commits to high standards of quality, productivity and timeliness in the delivery of tasks. The Project Specialist will meet and apply the highest standards of integrity and impartiality. Incumbents will be fully dedicated to the mandate and the values of UN Women, particularly to promoting Gender Equality as a strategy to reduce conflict, improve livelihoods and ensure fairness and justice; to Women Empowerment underpinning Gender Equality promotion efforts; to inter-ethnic tolerance and concord; and to respect for diversity.
