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.

For every child, Hope

The new IMPACT Plan represents a culmination of work to redefine UNICEF’s narrative of business engagement – envisioning a bold new strategy to harness the power, reach and influence of business for children. PSE’s vision of better business for children inspires its delivery on the Plan’s business influence goals by promoting that business take sustainable action for child rights.

The most powerful way to deliver results for children is to change the very way in which business operates, and to leverage their considerable influence to deliver results for children. This could potentially reach over a billion children – delivering exponentially more impact than funding alone. For example, the ILO estimates that half a billion workers are employed throughout business supply chains globally – changing business practices on breastfeeding, WASH and family-friendly workplace (ECD) opportunities will help achieve these programme results. Similarly, not doing so can undermine achievements if programmatic solutions do not address the needs of poor working families around the world. This is why over 21 UNICEF country offices are today investing in approaches of business sustainability as a key strategy for achieving programme results. National Committees are also identifying this as an advocacy priority, recognizing NatCom business and their governments’ regulation of business impacts on children in programme countries.

Importantly, the work on the business audience pillar also emphasizes the environment in which business operates – so business is more than businesses; working with governments on standards and regulation and with major influencers of business – such as financial investors or industry bodies, and sustainability standards – is absolutely essential. Results at scale will not be achieved company by company, and it is this wider business environment which will influence business demand to engage on children.

In order to advance the Child Rights and Business agenda as a key ‘how strategy’ within UNICEF for achieving programme results for the children, the global CRB team will be implementing the following key actions:

1. Building the evidence – demonstrating the potential for results through responsible business2. Supporting the integration of CRB approaches where relevant in UNICEF planning3. Growing organizational capacity and systems to work on child rights and business.

The launch of the Better Business for Children Initiative provide a focus and platform to achieve the above three objective, creating the evidence base for business and for UNICEF, supporting embedding in planning, and the development of appropriate capacity and systems within the organization to deliver.

    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.

    For every child, Hope..,

    Children are integral to every business – as consumers, family members of employees and as future employees. Every business leaves a footprint on children’s lives, whether through employment conditions, marketing practices or environmental impacts. Global workplaces and supply chains of business have significant impact – directly and indirectly – on children. This extends beyond child labour, to impacts on children because of working and living conditions for parents, and as members of the community and environment in which business operates. Key programmatic concerns relate to breastfeeding and ECD in the workplace, WASH4Work, child protection concerns, maternal health and nutrition, living conditions and access to basic services for working families.

    There is however also a huge opportunity for the influence and leverage of business to deliver dramatic results for children and contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. Given global workforces, there is potential to reach an estimated one billion children with changing workplace practices. With the Better Business for Children Initiative, UNICEF is working with partners to promote child rights in workplaces and supply chains through actions which:• Change business policy and practice in the workplace for children and working parents; • Strengthen communities and improve living conditions for workers, families and communities; • Promote joint action and advocacy by business, government and other stakeholders to address systemic challenges and take initiatives to scale. • Escalate and global scale-up through supply chains of international brands.

    Child labour and the situation of young workers in supply chains is perhaps the most recognized child rights impact of business operations. Yet, too often approaches to understanding and addressing child labour in the context of business activity is frequently too narrow – focussed on removing children from Tier 1 factory or plantation floors, and with a focus on audit and certification approaches. Yet, to truly eliminate the risk of child labour means understanding the many ways in which child labour may connect to the business – such as situations of domestic and child labour of employees, child labour risks in outsourcing, child labour in the informal sector in the communities where the business operates, and child labour further down in the deeper supply chain from where the business may source raw materials. Addressing child labour also requires business to work with Governments and local communities to address the systemic issues that drive child labour – from poverty, lack of access to education and other basic services, migration and conflict, gender dynamics, lack of adequate birth registration, etc.

    It is for this reason that UNICEF together with ILO – under the umbrella of the Alliance 8.7 Supply Chain Action Group – are piloting approaches to child labour in supply chains through UNICEF’s Better Business for Children initiative in country. To support this work, a technical specialist is being recruited to help develop and test strategies and approaches targeting child labour action in supply chains, with a focus on Tier 1 and the deeper supply chain. Under the guidance of HQ and country office teams,you will work with country offices participating in the pilot to conceptualize, develop tools, support roll-out and implementation, provide policy and advocacy guidance, and document best practice for addressing child labour in Tier 1 and deeper supply chain activity.

    How can you make a difference?

    Youwill work to develop this as a global approach; and support piloting and testing of the materials with the Better Business for Children initiative in 5 countries – Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, India and Cote d’Ivoire; there is possibility of expansion of scope to limited additional countries. You will also look at innovation in health and nutrition approaches with working mothers and their families; and leveraging existing global initiatives such as ILO Betterwork, etc. As a final deliverable, you will consolidate the lessons and best practices into global guidance and tools for business and their stakeholders to eliminate child labour and achieve SDG 8.7.

    SCOPE OF WORK

    Under the guidance of the Manager, Child Rights and Business at UNICEF – and in coordination with UNICEF Child Protection and ILO, you will support the Better Business for Children initiative, and pilot countries by:

    Workplace Pilot (Steps 1-4)

  • Review the five pilot country programmes and map how Tier 1 suppliers are linked to child labour, modern slavery in their deeper supply chains;
  • Develop recommendations for how participating business and UNICEF country offices could take action to address child labour in deeper supply chains.
  • Support country offices to identify relevant policy and advocacy gaps for child labour in supply chains; and opportunities which can create an enabling environment for working parents (eg. Vietnam’s Decree 85, or India’s Plantation Labour Act, or Cocoa Action).
  • Document the advocacy and policy initiatives being rolled out in countries in a global summary document.
  • Scale up Through Global Supply Chains

  • Develop information material to help brands and buyers better understand child labour in deeper supply chains.
  • Consolidate the experiences and develop guidance for business on Child Labour in deeper supply chains.

    Switzerland: Associate Solutions Officer

     Administracion, FULL TIME, Seguridad y Salud Ocupacional  Comments Off on Switzerland: Associate Solutions Officer
    Mar 232018
     

    Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 02 Apr 2018

    GENERAL BACKGROUND:

    The scale and complexity of today’s displacement is exacerbated by a combination of armed conflict, violence, insecurity and human rights abuses, which continue to pose serious protection challenges to more than 65 million people. At the same time, unprecedented numbers of people are on the move, influenced by the quest for economic opportunities and social inclusion in developed countries.

    Yet, displacement crises have also given impetus to positive developments. The already solid involvement of NGOs in support of refugees has gained additional stimulus and has been diversified by the emergence of new local actors. Many cities and municipalities have developed creative and innovative social cohesion and integration schemes. At the same time, there has been increased recognition that refugees and internally displaced people can contribute to local economies, if access to the labour market is facilitated and barriers to inclusion removed. Significantly, international financial institutions are exploring innovative financial instruments for engagement in displacement situations, including the World Bank IDA 18 sub-window for refugees and host communities and the Global Concessional Financing Facility for refugee emergencies in middle-income countries.

    In particular, the adoption of the New York Declaration in September 2016 has ushered in a new era of collaboration for UNHCR and partners. Focused attention is being given to enhancing national ownership in order to oversee comprehensive refugee responses. Twelve roll-out countries are now seeking to apply the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework model foreseen under the NY Declaration, drawing upon new thinking at the national level on ways to enhance the predictability, level and type of aid given to both refugees and local communities. UNHCR has been given a clear mandate by the UN General Assembly to guide this process, as well as to present a proposal for a global compact on refugees in 2018.

    In parallel, UNHCR is building a multi-year perspective in its planning and budgetary processes, which is vital to support planning for inclusion and solutions and for our ability to work with development actors. Launched in 2016 in six operations, the Multi-Year Multi-Partner (MYMP) approach has progressively enabled UNHCR to engage in longer-term strategic planning with partners, and in 2017 the MYMP approach entered a sequenced phase of institutionalization and was operationalized in 22 countries.

    At the same time, significant internal restructuring has taken place to ensure UNHCR is better equipped to occupy new strategic spaces, seize political opportunities as they emerge, and ultimately, expand and diversify solutions for refugees and other forcibly displaced people in coordination with key partners. As a result, a dedicated Division of Resilience and Solutions (DRS) was created in February 2018 at UNHCR Headquarters.

    The Division of Resilience and Solutions will facilitate the institutional shift in orientation towards solutions in a number of ways:

    • Support the integration of multi-year solutions strategies into country operations planning that reflect the unique characteristics and opportunities for inclusion and self-reliance in different contexts and regions;

    • Establish new partnerships and modes of collaboration among development agencies, international financial institutions, private sector partnerships, advocacy groups to highlight the plight of UNHCR’s people of concern; promote inclusion into national development systems and planning, and more effectively advocate for the rights of refugees and the benefits of social and economic inclusion;

    • Ensure strategic cohesion, support, and buy-in across UNHCR bureaux, divisions and field operations for a stronger solutions orientation in the delivery of protection and assistance that promotes the restoration of rights and greater resilience among populations of concern.

    PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF ASSIGNMENT:**

    Under the direct supervision of the Head of Solutions Unit, and in coordination with other members of the Solutions Unit, the Associate Solutions Officer will have the following responsibilities:

    • Support the institutionalization of the MYMP approach including

    • Contribute to policy reflections and guidance formulation, as well as reporting and preparation of high level updates;

    • Ensure the completion of the lessons learned exercise through a consolidated report and its contribution for knowledge sharing and eventual revision of the MYMP approach and guidance;

    • Respond to Bureaux and field operations technical requests, including provide support on the alignment of the annual operational plans with the MYMP strategies in all 22 operations;

    • Liaise with UNHCR’s relevant stakeholders (Regional Bureaux, Divisions, and field operations) and participate in the strategic reflections on the MYMP linkages with CRRF, RBM, and other strategic processes;

    • Support the future expansion of the approach to additional operations.

    • Promote the strengthening of UNHCR-World Bank operational partnership, and in particular:

    • Support capacity building processes related to UNHCR’s engagement with the World Bank and other development partners in coordination with different key stakeholders (e.g. Global Learning Centre, WB capacity building focal point);

    • Support specific activities within the framework of the IDA 18 refugee and host community sub-window.

    • Provide general support for the implementation of key development partnerships and agreed work plans and events (e.g. UNDP, EDD).

    • Contribute to the implementation of the multi-year research on “Longitudinal Evaluation of UNHCR’s Humanitarian-Development Cooperation” funded by the Government of Luxembourg as well as the documentation of solutions best practices globally.

    • Support inter-division/cross-unit efforts to develop the institutional capacity to engage with development partners, expand field operations’ understanding of development issues and the need to ensure proper alignment from the onset of an emergency with our humanitarian responses (e.g. UNDAF/SDGs guidance, development mapping, etc.).

    • Provide programmatic, administrative and human resources support to the Solutions and Livelihoods Units, ensuring:

    • budget management, including resource allocation and transfers;

    • effective monthly financial monitoring;

    • allocation, tracking, and reporting on earmarked contributions;

    • Facilitate the timely response to key donors’ requests and inquiries (e.g. bilateral meetings, donor reports, etc.).

    • Coordinate the design and content development of Solutions pages on UNHCR intranet, and ensure the regular update of Livelihoods and Solutions related themes on the platform.
