To respond to emerging needs and enhancing the resilience of the most vulnerable, especially children, youth, and women in Iran, a three-year joint program has been developed with the aim of supporting Iran in achieving sustainable economic and social development. Under this Joint Program, the Office of the Resident Coordinator (UNRCO) plays the role of Convening Agency and is accountable for the coordination of programmatic activities that United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) will implement. The above-mentioned Participating UN Organizations (PUNOs) are responsible for I) protecting children and youth from the harms of drugs, II) procurement of cancer medicines for children, and III) mainstreaming of women empowerment and the most vulnerable in disaster preparedness and response on a concerted effort to deliver corresponding results. The work plans have been developed jointly by the PUNOs with the national partners. The project funding takes place subsequent to the internal approval of the European Union (EU) via the UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF).
This activity will include the provision of search and rescue trainings and participation in disaster simulation exercises of focus groups. Communication activities to raise the profile of disaster champions will also be part of the strategy to inspire and incentivize others. These activities will be undertaken in the recently established Women Friendly Spaces and those to be established in selected disaster-prone provinces, as well as in the centers managed by Technical and Vocational Training Organization of Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare.
