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.

Gender mainstreaming is one of UN Women’s primary areas of work in Timor-Leste as mandated in its inception, recognizing gender-responsive planning and budgeting as integral to good governance. To promote gender-responsive planning and budgeting, UN Women works throughout the annual planning cycle at national and decentralized levels with the women’s machinery as well as key line ministries, parliamentarians, civil society organizations, academia and other institutions. As part of this work UN Women also supports the Government in capacity building of State institutions in collection, analysis and application of sex-disaggregated data for policy making and planning.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the United Nations agency devoted to advancing opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity.

Timor-Leste and ILO have collaborated very closely since the country became a member of the ILO in 2003. Through the Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP) the ILO assists Timor-Leste to move forward with decent work objectives. The DWCP reflects the priorities of the ILO tripartite constituents (government, employers and workers’ organisations) and is structured around three major objectives: enhancing youth employment, integrating employment into rural economic development and creating labour market governance.

With the official release of the Labour Force Survey (LFS) in 2015, UN Women in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO) has conducting a gender analysis of the LFS with engagement of key Government stakeholders.

In order to publish the report, UN Women is looking to hire an international consultant to support on further  the report and labour market, including various dimensions of labour force participation, employment, underemployment, vulnerable and informal employment, wages and gender segregation in occupations across multiple industries and others. In this regard UN Women and ILO seek to hire an international consultant.
