The UNDP Viet Nam seeks one National Field Researcher to conduct a Gender Analysis for the UN-REDD+ Viet Nam Programme with a team leader (international or national) and a senior researcher (international or national)The UN-REDD+ Programme promotes gender equality as part of its commitments to international agreements, and recognises the effectiveness and sustainable impacts of mainstreaming gender into REDD+ interventions. The Cancun Agreement made several references to gender and women, and the 17th meeting of the Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC in Durban in 2011 continually reinforced, in various parts of the Decisions, the necessity to take gender considerations. UN-REDD+’s Social and Environmental Criteria and Principles further emphasise the importance of gender equality. Under Principle 2, “Respect and protect stakeholder rights in accordance with international obligations” criterion 8 specifically states “Promote and enhance gender equality, gender equity and women’s empowerment”. The rationale for including gender considerations in REDD+ policy, planning and implementation is predicated on the human rights-based approach to development. Gender equality is a human right set forth in the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), as well as addressed in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP). Besides the normative reasoning, mainstreaming gender into REDD+ can increase efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of a project.UNDP is seeking a National field Researcher working with a team leader (international or national) and a senior field researcher (international or national) to conduct a gender analysis for the UN-REDD+ Programme. The gender analysis will include a review of the outcomes of Phase 1 from a gender perspective, and identify gender issues in land/forest management and gender power dynamics in social, economic and political spheres that might reinforce and/or result in unequal status, opportunities, benefits and risks faced by women and men in Lam Dong Province. Based on this, the analysis will set out prioritized and concrete objectives of addressing gender equality in REDD+ in Lam Dong, inform the design of gender-sensitive processes and activities in Phase 2, as well as provide baseline data for monitoring gender safeguards throughout Phase 2.
The objectives of the assignment are:
- to conduct a gender review of the process and outcomes of Phase 1 (at provincial level in Lam Dong) in order to improve the design and implementation of Phase 2;
- to conduct a gender analysis in the area of forestry management and rural development in Lam Dong to inform the design and the M&E of Phase 2 that ensures and promotes gender equity, gender equality and women’s empowerment
