UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

In Ukraine UN Women works with the government, parliament, and civil society in advancing gender equality through implementation of the national and international commitments on gender equality and women’s human rights. UN Women Ukraine implements interventions towards the realization of following strategic goals: elimination of violence against women and girls; implementation of women, peace and security agenda and gender responsive governance. UN Women works closely with the UN Country Team in integration of women’s rights and gender equality in all spheres of UN work.

Since the beginning of the Russian military invasion on 24 February 2022, Ukraine is rapidly emerging as one of the world’s most complex emergencies where women and men, girls and boys, in all their diversities, have been profoundly impacted. The humanitarian crisis has continued to escalate, with varied and uneven gendered impacts. 56 per cent of the 3.7 million officially registered IDPs are women, and women make up 93 per cent of the 4.6 million people returning to Ukraine and seeking to re-integrate into society[1]. As of December 2023, at least 14.5 million people (one-third of the population) need humanitarian aid, of which 56 per cent are women and girls[2]. Women’s groups and civil society organizations have been quick to react to the immediate priorities of their communities but face many challenges as they attempt to provide support to large numbers of internally displaced people, host-communities and those directly affected by violence and insecurity. Civil society, and particularly women’s organizations in Ukraine are in the front-line to deliver immediate humanitarian assistance to displaced women and girls. Displaced women and girls are facing multiple human rights violations, including sexual and gender-based violence.

In response to the invasion and humanitarian crisis, the United Nations Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF), with the technical support of UN Women, has activated its emergency response for Ukraine, by supporting local women’s rights organizations in Ukraine and Moldova on the frontlines of the response to the needs and displacement of women and girls.

Reporting to WPHF Coordination Analyst, the Programme Analyst provides programme support to UN Women in the process of onboarding/contracting, projects’ implementation, monitoring and evaluation, reporting of implementing partners for a well-documented and result oriented implementation of the WPHF project. The Programme Analyst supports the delivery of the WPHF project by analyzing results achieved during implementation and supporting appropriate application of systems and procedures. The Programme Analyst works in close collaboration with the programme and operations team, to ensure successful UN Women programme implementation under portfolio.
