United Nations Considerations

According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity.

The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.

The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.

    Background and Rationale

    The UNICEF Emergency Preparedness and Response Training for Standby Partners (SBPs) have been developed by UNICEF Office for Emergency Programme (EMOPS) in cooperation with SBPs. The training has been developed as a response to the increasing need for competent personnel to provide expertise in emergency response planning, programming and calculated responsive action to mitigate the impacts of disaster. Thus the training will equip participants with essential knowledge and skills to master this.

    The training has been run 10 times, is well structured with standardized lesson plans, learning outcomes and course materials, and is constantly fine-tuned. The training content and format were revised in 2015 and again standardized in 2016. In 2017 minor adaptations and improvements were carried out by the Training Coordinator following the course in preparation for the 2018 course. In 2018 the training package was run twice and improvements from the first run incorporated into the second training. New sessions on Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) and Emergency Cash Transfer (ECT) Programming were initiated and these should be formalized into modules.

    In 2019 the training will take place from 30 September to 4 October and will be hosted by the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) in Starum, Norway.

    For coordinating the five-day UNICEF training, a dedicated Training Coordinator is required.
