How you can make a difference:
UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s new strategic plan (2022-2025), focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices. These results capture our strategic commitments in accelerating progress towards realizing the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030.
In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction. UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.
Moldova, which shares a 1,222 km long border with Ukraine, could be impacted by any escalation in conflict affecting Ukraine, particularly if Ukraine’s central or southern territories (including Odessa) would be affected. Any coordination effort to respond to a displacement crisis would also need to take into consideration that a large section of Moldova’s border with Ukraine is controlled by the de facto structures in the Transnistria region (25 out of 67 border crossings with Ukraine) and that many people would need to travel through a section of this territory before crossing the Nistru River.
