Вакансія: Project Analyst

The legal basis for the joint programme is the Legal Annex for the Transitional Framework 2022-2023 which currently serves as a bridging document between the previous UN-Ukraine Partnership Framework (2018-2022) and the new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2024-2027). Additionally, the present Joint Programme is built upon the engagement between the Government of Ukraine and the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (SRSG-SVC) to prevent and respond to conflict-related sexual violence which was materialized through the “Framework of Cooperation between the Government of Ukraine and the United Nations on the Prevention and Response to Conflict-Related Sexual Violence” (FoC) signed in May 2022.

The present programme was mainly designed in response to the needs expressed by the Ukrainian authorities in the course of the development of the FoC and the development of the related Implementation Plan which intends to coordinate the efforts related to conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) response of a broad range of stakeholders, including international partners, UN agencies, government entities and civil society organizations. In this view, the Joint Programme will create the critical infrastructure in Ukraine that can take over this work and enable an in-person should-to-shoulder collaboration with the Ukrainian government pushing the implementation of the FoC forward by responding to the immediate needs that the Inter-Agency Working Group is experiencing in terms of human resources. 

The present programme is fully aligned with CEDAW provisions, its general recommendation No. 30 (2013) on women in conflict prevention, conflict and post-conflict situations and the recent Concluding Observations of the CEDAW Committee in the ninth periodic report of Ukraine [CEDAW/C/UKR/9] issued at the occasion of its 1921st and 1923rd meetings held in October 2022. The Joint Programme practically responds to a number of recommendations expressed by the Committee (especially paragraph 16).

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and the Apparatus of the Government Commissioner for Gender Equality Policy and members of the Inter-Agency Working Group on combating sexual violence are supporting an Implementation  Plan with a focus on five critical areas: (i) trafficking in persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation, (ii) provision of comprehensive assistance to survivors of CRSV, (iii) access to justice and accountability, (iv) strengthening the capacity of the security and defence sector to prevent and address CRSV, and (v) reparations and compensation. The Office of the SRSG-SVC co-chairs each of the inter-agency working groups dedicated to these themes together with UN Agencies in Ukraine and the national counterparts.

While driving the plan forward in a volatile conflict-affected environment, the national authorities have sought strategic and technical support to coordinate and assist with the roll-out of the Implementation Plan. To bridge these gaps, the present project responds to this request, outlining the provision of technical support and expertise to Government institutions and relevant UN entities, which will work in collaboration with civil society organizations and first responders in implementing the FoC through: (i) policy development, (ii) training/awareness raising, and (iii) support to survivors.

To this end, a Joint Secretariat comprising representatives of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and the Apparatus of the Government Commissioner for Gender Equality Policy of Ukraine and relevant UN entities will be established to support the Government’s Inter-Agency Working Group in developing and coordinating activities within the Implementation Plan. As a critical component of this project, the Government of Ukraine identified the need to be supported by six national experts on CRSV to be deployed in four government institutions, namely: the Deputy Prime Minister’s office for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, the Apparatus of the Government Commissioner for Gender Equality and Policy of Ukraine, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Social Service of Ukraine. Concurrently, a team of Women Protection Advisers, led by a Senior Women’s Protection Adviser (SWPA) in the Office of the Resident Coordinator, will be deployed to support the UN Country Team in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions, especially resolution 2467 (2019), in support of the Joint Secretariat that is responsible for coordinating the overall implementation of the FoC, as co-signatories of the agreement, and its Implementation Plan.  Activities to achieve the expected results under the various workstreams will be implemented on the ground, in collaboration with the WPA Unit and the national experts deployed in the various Government entities for this purpose.
