Staff Consultant - Communications and Media Office

Vacancy Announcement

The Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD)

 

Consultancy: Staff Consultant - Communications and Media Officer

                         

Job open number: 5_VA_CON_APRO_2017

 

Background:

The Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD) is a network of parliamentarians, established in 1981 to promote parliamentarians’ action in addressing population issues in the Asia and the Pacific region.  AFPPD envisions a world where demographic changes and population issues are taken into account in planning for sustainable development, especially a world where women and girls have equal rights and opportunities and can enjoy a safe, healthy and dignified life throughout their life cycle.  More specifically, AFPPD strives for a world where all women and girls have access to sexual and reproductive health information, education and services, and can decide whether, when and how many to have children, and where “no one is left behind.” 

AFPPD aims to realize its vision through parliamentary work by (a) advocating for and formulating and amending policies and legislation that promotes specifically healthy and active ageing, investing in youth, gender equality and women’s empowerment; (b) advocating for increased financial resources in these areas; and (c) holding governments accountable for their international commitments and implementation.

AFPPD is governed by the General Assembly and managed by the Executive Committee between General Assemblies, being strategically advised by three Standing Committees, and supported by the Secretariat in Bangkok, Thailand. As of August 2017, AFPPD consists of 30 National Committees that deal with population and development issues. These committees are supported by the respective countries’ parliamentary or committee staff or an NGO outside the parliament.  AFPPD provides capacity development support to its member National Committees, facilitating their networking and regional collaboration to promote the full implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals as well as the accelerated implementation of the Framework of Actions for the Follow-up to the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD PoA) beyond 2014.

Since the AFPPD 11th General Assembly in October 2015, AFPPD’s amended constitution has strengthened and re-defined AFPPD’s governance structure to make it more effective and impactful as a regional parliamentarian network.  As part of these efforts, the General Assembly approved the Strategic Plan 2016-2019 and established three new Standing Committees focusing on strategic priority areas related to (1) gender equality and women’s empowerment; (2) investing in youth; and (3) active ageing.  Later in early 2016, the AFPPD Strategic Priorities Framework was developed and approved, which was built upon these Standing Committees tackling their respective challenges using the common framework of cross-cutting thematic issues: safety and security; health; and participation.
