Rwanda is one of the 8 pilot countries of the Delivering as One (DaO) process. This was a response to the UN Secretary General’s High Level Panel on System-Wide Coherence that recommended UN reform to improve coherence and effectiveness of the UN system at country level. The reform is strengthening the coherence at the country level through the application of the following principles: One Programme, One Budget, One Leader, One Voice, and One House.
In March 2013, the UN Develop Group issued Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for DaO countries. The SOPs reinforce the role and importance of communications in the overall architecture of DaO. The principle of One Voice is redefined as Communicating as One. The SOPs recommend to strengthen the accountability framework for the UN Communication Group which should be lead by a UN head of Agency. The accountability framework is comprised of a strategy, coordination structure reporting to the UNCT, an Annual Work Plan, budget, and a M&E framework.
UNDP as part of DaO in Rwanda is aligned to the Vision 2020 and the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy 2013-2018 of the Government of Rwanda. The United Nations Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP) 2013-2018 is the business plan of the UN in Rwanda supporting the implementation of the national development agenda.
UNDP also realises that communication is a core feature of its work in Rwanda:
The 2013-2018 UNDP Communication Strategy focuses on enhancing internal and external communication to create a better understanding of and support of the work of UNDP as part of ‘Delivering as One’ among staff and our stake holders. It will also ensure that there is adequate information being shared within the UN system in Rwanda as well as among all partners so that they better understand and support the Delivering as One process.
Under the overall guidance of the Country Director, in close consultation with the RR/RC and under the direct supervision of the Chief of the Management Support Unit (MSU), the Communications Analyst develops concrete plans for implementation of global advocacy campaigns and implements UNDP Rwanda communications strategy. The UNDP communications strategy is tightly linked to program priorities and helps position the Country Office as a cutting edge development partner.
The Communications Analyst may supervise and lead communications support staff. The Communications Analyst works in close collaboration with the Advisory, Programme, and Operations teams as well as project teams to ensure that these strategies meet the programme needs. The incumbent closely cooperates with the staff of other UN Agencies, UNDP HQs/Communications Office and the Regional Communication Specialist, Government officials, media, multi-lateral and bi-lateral donors and civil society ensuring successful UNDP communication strategy implementation.
