UNICEF is responding to the epidemic of COVID-19 around the world, knowing that the virus could spread to children and families in any country or community. UNICEF will continue supporting the Ukraine’s Government, Ombudsman Office and partners to protect the rights of children and further build their capacity for child rights monitoring (CRM). With the COVID-19 pandemic, the national development context in Ukraine has fundamentally changed. Ukraine is facing a socio-economic crisis in a generation, coming at a time of acute inequality. While threatening to deepen inequalities and undo progress on sustainable development and humanitarian responses more broadly, COVID-19 is already devastating children, families with children and communities in Ukraine.

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Purpose of the assignment:

UNICEF is responding to the epidemic of COVID-19 around the world, knowing that the virus could spread to children and families in any country or community. UNICEF will continue supporting the Ukraine’s Government, Ombudsman Office and partners to protect the rights of children and further build their capacity for child rights monitoring (CRM).  With the COVID-19 pandemic, the national development context in Ukraine has fundamentally changed. Ukraine is facing a socio-economic crisis in a generation, coming at a time of acute inequality. While threatening to deepen inequalities and undo progress on sustainable development and humanitarian responses more broadly, COVID-19 is already devastating children, families with children and communities in Ukraine.

As a response, UNICEF Ukraine is proposing to prepare CRM Flash Reports framed around three objectives: (i)  support the strengthening of CRM through conducting rapid situation analysis; (ii) highlighting major child rights violations and; (iii) support to assess the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 and advocate for  urgent recovery measures to minimize long-term impact, particularly for vulnerable groups (children, families with children).  

In this context, UNICEF Ukraine is pursuing to conduct regular situation assessments in light of the rapid changes taking place in the socio-economic environment.  The impact assessment focused on CRM includes: (i) rapid assessment of COVID-19 situation as per CRM area; (ii) impact analysis (analysis of impact of planned actions on wellbeing of children, first of all on the most vulnerable groups, with respective risks assessment); (iii) analysis of related to COVID-19 initiatives in  legislative and political environment (through CRM lens); (iv) emerging priorities in the response to the identified challenges and risks highlighting major child rights violations.

The current individual contract proposes to engage a consultant to (i) conduct regular impact assessment  and draft ad hoc notes by request (estimates concerning COVID-19 impact on child wellbeing and child rights in general); (ii) draft bimonthly CRM flash reports (update on legislative changes through CRM lens);  (iii) draft suggestions for UNICEF advocacy among key stakeholders (Government, Parliament,  Ombudsman Office, CSOs etc.)  concerning specific CRM related issues. The Consultant will be responsible for CRM flash reports drafting as per agreed outline. The Consultant will cooperate with the CRM, Social Policy, Child Protection, Communication Sections and other UNICEF staff and partners.
