Mission and objectives

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (UNEP/ROAP) helps to implement its global programmes in the regions by initiating, coordinating, and catalyzing regional and sub-regional cooperation and action in response to environmental problems and emergencies.

Context

UNEP and UN Women are jointly implementing Phase II of the Programme - “EmPower: Women for Climate- Resilient Societies” (EmPower) - running from 2023 to 2027. Serving 5 countries – Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Viet Nam, the Programme supports access to technologies for decarbonization, enhance resilience and increase access to climate finance using a gender-responsive and human rights-based approach. To that end, we are seeking the support from Online Volunteers in data gathering and analysis through this virtual assignment. This assignment will support the analysis of qualitative/quantitative data on digital innovation for energy transition and climate resilience building that will contribute towards EmPower’s implementation. Online volunteers will also receive feedback on their quality of work, a certificate of appreciation upon successful completion of the assignment, and will be given credit of support where applicable.
