Project Management Associate - Strengthening Socio Economic Recovery, Human Security and Resilience in Thailand

Background

 

While the impact of COVID-19 is already affecting the whole society, those who are economically and socially vulnerable are hit the hardest. Informal workers have been affected immediately, as they lack access to social protection measures and safety nets, as well as entitlements at the workplace, such as paid leave or sick leave. According to Thailand’s National Statistical Office (NSO) Informal Economy Survey, 2019, 20.4 million people or 54.3% of the labour force are in the informal sector.

Additionally, individuals who are the most affected by the pandemic are those at risk of being left behind in development – including women, the elderly and youth, those who work community enterprises, and marginalised vulnerable groups, such as persons with disabilities (PWDs), LGBTI people, persons living with HIV, homeless persons, stateless individuals, or persons belonging to ethnic minorities, and refugees and migrants. Thailand’s poverty and inequality could rise drastically as the number of ‘new poor’ affected by COVID-19 is also expected to increase significantly. The conflict affected southern border provinces of Thailand have been particularly impacted by the pandemic, including challenges linked to food security.

In view of the impact of the pandemic on Thailand,  UNDP plans to implement a number of interventions building on existing strong partnerships established at the national and sub national level and leverage on ongoing initiatives linked to Response and Recovery at local, regional and national level, including the following:

 

Respond: supporting an inclusive, participatory and gender responsive response by working across key sectors to prevent the spread of the virus and to provide the necessary protection for the most vulnerable. As COVID-19 disproportionately affects vulnerable individuals and groups, it is crucial to ensure their voices are heard and their needs are met in the development of the government response.

 

Recover: Support urgent gender responsive policy and programme recovery interventions to address the impact of COVID 19, especially for poor and marginalized groups by delivering the outputs listed below.

In that regard, UNDP aims at supporting the implementation of a programme titled ‘Strengthening socio economic recovery, human security and resilience in Thailand’. The overall objective of the project is to promote social and economic recovery and strengthen the community resilience of the Thai people – with a particular focus on vulnerable and at-risk groups, including women, youth, persons with disabilities (PWDs), LGBTI persons and ethnic minorities – to ensure empowerment at both sub-national and national level, and in view of promoting SDG localization efforts. The various initiatives will aim at mapping and addressing the various in order to develop targeted, gender responsive measures to mitigate the immediate challenges and address long-term impact of COVID-19 and to promote sustainable economic and social recovery, as well as inclusive, transparent, equitable, sustainable and people-centred development and the achievement of the SDGs.
