DEPARTMENT/COUNTRY PROGRAM DESCRIPTION/MISSION
The International Programs department is committed to helping communities that have been uprooted by conflict or natural disasters to take control of their futures and rebuild and maintain healthy, prosperous lives. ARC takes an integrated approach that emerges from within communities themselves, promoting leadership, participation, and partnership at the local level. ARC conducts programs in Health (with recognized strengths in reproductive health and gender-based violence), Protection, Livelihoods, Water/Sanitation, Shelter, Camp Management, Capacity Building and Emergency Response, among others.

The GBV and Protection Technical Advisor (GBV TA) provides technical, programmatic leadership and guidance to ARC’s programs and initiatives for protection of displaced persons who are at particular risk of violence or abuse, including children and women subject to gender-based violence (GBV). Specifically, the GBV TA is the key technical focal point for all ARC GBV Prevention and Response projects. The GBV TA works closely with all members of ARC’s Technical, Program Development, and Program Management units to provide appropriate and timely technical guidance to multiple country programs including emergency response, new initiatives, new business development, proposal design and development, reviewing reports and developing strategies to mainstream gender and protection. The GBV TA will also work to expand protection programming by mainstreaming protection throughout all sectors and to look at opportunities to include child protection activities. Additionally, a key function of this position is to work strategically with ARC’s Government Affairs and Advocacy priorities to address GBV/Protection issues globally.

Gender-Based Violence (GBV) was recognized by all communities as a major concern during the crisis and remains a significant risk in crisis affected areas. NGOs and GBV sub-cluster partners report a number of cases of sexual violence and GBV among women and girls. Anecdotal evidence and on-line articles showing incidents of sexual violence have been circulated. In the absence of clear referral and confidential reporting mechanisms, reported numbers yet to be identified. However, numbers are believed to be even higher as one of the characteristics of GBV, and in particular sexual violence, is under-reporting.
Several types of violence against women and men have already been identified. Women have faced a series of challenges, including being prevented by their partners from leaving conflict zones, increasing instances of rape and being forced to live with and do unpaid domestic labour for separatists, as well as violence in collective centers. There are unverified reports of trafficking and looting affecting women in rural areas outside the control of the Government areas. A high proportion of men have not accompanied their families in displacement and women comprises approximately two thirds of all adult IDPs. They face gender-specific protection and health issues. The Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) has stated concerns about the negative consequences of the current crisis on anti-trafficking activities, and has noted that the growing number of IDPs are vulnerable to human trafficking.
The stress of daily survival on the affected population still living in the conflict areas is enormous let alone the loss of and/or injury to life, fear of arbitrary detention, torture, sexual violence towards men and women, forced conscription to fight, and illegal seizure and destruction of property. The breakdown of basic services, law and order leaves people – families, children, widows, and elderly – on their own to face intimidation and reprisals, with little to no access to social, medical or legal services or any means of livelihoods support. There is a need to strengthen the current monitoring, reporting and advocacy on protection needs and gaps, and to ensure the provision of a protective environment and to build community cohesion and resilience in the post-conflict area.
Hence, the lack of pre-existing safe referral pathways for GBV cases results in a strong need for multi-sectoral and interagency coordination among multiple actors on the ground and in Kiev. It is also important that GBV response be mainstreamed in other clusters’ response. UNFPA has found temporary measures to coordinate activities, but a longer term and strong coordination mechanism must be put in place to ensure complementarity of efforts and ensure that GBV survivors receive care and treatment in a confidential and effective manner. Another, but related, objective is to integrate emergency/humanitarian GBV interventions into United Nations, Government and non-governmental structures to support longer-term, sustained, structural and systemic interventions that protect populations in Ukraine, especially women and girls, from gender-based violence.
A strong GBV coordination of multiple actors should be ensured in Kiev and region, including through inter-cluster collaboration to strengthen the multi-sectoral response to GBV. For this purpose, UNFPA has decided to deploy international GBV sub-cluster coordinator to facilitate and coordinate the rapid response and prevention of SGBV/GBV in east Ukraine.
GBV programming in humanitarian emergencies is multi-sectoral, involving multiple organizations and actors from the displaced and host communities, NGO and government implementing partners, UN agencies, and other national and international organizations to engage in comprehensive prevention and response initiatives. The GBV Coordinator’s duties include liaison and coordination with other organizations (coalition building), training and sensitization, strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation. The Coordinator chairs the GBV sub-cluster.and represents the interests of the sub-cluster partners. The Coordinator will use the IASC Guidelines for GBV Interventions in Humanitarian Settings and companion materials (orientation and training guides, planning worksheets, etc.) to facilitate planning, coordination, monitoring and evaluation of GBV initiatives.
