Gender Based Violence/DIP Field Protection Service

Title: GBV Data Analysis and M&E Contractor

Duty Station: Home Based

Duration: 9 months

Contract Type: Contractor

Closing date: Close of Business 6 May 2022

General Background of Project or Assignment:

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people. An unprecedented 82.3 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 26.4 million refugees. Responding to the needs of children is a core component of UNHCR’s protection mandate.

Gender-based Violence (GBV) is a human rights abuse and women and girls are disproportionately affected by GBV around the world. In displacement contexts, GBV is often heightened, particularly during emergencies. Individuals who are asylum-seekers, refugees, stateless, internally displaced, and who are returnees (collectively referred to as persons of concern (PoC) to UNHCR) are at-risk of GBV, irrespective of age, gender or other diversity considerations. For UNHCR, preventing, mitigating and responding to GBV is a core part of the mandate to protect.

The Field Protection Service within UNHCR Headquarters’ Division of International Protection helps to strengthen preparedness and response to the most critical protection risks, faced by the persons of concern, through analysis, operational guidance to field operations, emergency deployments, and mobilization of partners and other stakeholders. It also analyses and strengthens protection knowledge and skills within UNHCR and partners to address acute protection concerns arising from conflict, disasters and the adverse effects of climate change.

For GBV programmes to be effective, they must be supported by and integrated with UNHCR’s broader protection strategies and programmes, and they must be adapted to a displacement context. Therefore, this work requires specific expertise in GBV that allows data collection and analysis to be designed and implemented in a way that supports and informs quality GBV programmes.

UNHCR has substantive qualitative and quantitative data from different sources on all aspects of our GBV work and programmes. The analysis of trends on implementation, quality, resourcing, and impact of our GBV work globally is crucial to inform global advocacy, programming and planning, both within UNHCR and with partners.
