UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nations' global development network that advocates for change and connects countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life for themselves. Since its onset, UNDP has operated in more than 170 countries and working with local governments to meet development challenges, develop local capacity and help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Joint Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Fund in Timor-Leste aims to assist the government of Timor-Leste to develop and establish a holistic and Integrated, National Financing Framework (INFF). The INFF will help to improve the governance and coordination, articulate a financing strategy and strengthen the monitoring and oversight framework. The value of this work has taken on even greater significance since the COVID-19 pandemic – in part because of the greater demands on public financing but also because Timor-Leste’s reserves through its Petroleum Fund have also been affected by the global economic downturn. Development financing is currently heavily reliant on financing from Timor-Leste’s petroleum fund. To reduce the reliance on petroleum funding, the Joint SDG Fund will help diversify financing sources and grow the fiscal space. Three financing areas have been identified for catalyzing strategic investments in People, Prosperity and Planet that emphasize financing - health, diaspora and climate financing, respectively.
The purpose of the Climate Finance component of the Joint Program is to explore viabilities of modern climate financial instruments in the context of Timor-Leste and to propose a Menu of Options for blended climate finance framework and to generate and leverage a pipeline of bankable green projects. The outcome will contribute to a positive shift in the Timor-Leste economy’s transition to sustainability through the financing and public policies that support climate-resilient initiatives. The current task implies the internalization of negative climate externalities to encourage investments that provide environmental benefits.
Duties and Responsibilities
Objective of the Assignment

Task 1: Mapping climate finance opportunities in Timor-Leste and current CSOs/actors and scalable projects in climate change mitigation and adaptation
Task 2: Managing implementation of bankable program pilot
