The rapidly shifting political and security landscape in Afghanistan has produced significant impacts for both immediate and long-term development and peace in the country. Over 550,000 people have fled their homes due to the conflict between 1 January and 9 August 2021, bringing the total number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to 3.5 million (9% of the total population). In addition, at least 30,000 people are estimated to be leaving the country each week. The country is experiencing fragility and faces challenges on multiple fronts including COVID-19, poverty, food insecurity, climate disruption, and impacts on the economy. These developments have both dramatically altered the landscape in which the United Nations operates, producing challenges to ongoing projects, operations as well as the ability to progress towards sustainable development goals articulated in Agenda 2030.
To better respond to the current crisis, UNDP has adopted a highly integrated yet decentralized approach to programming known as the ABADEI Community Resilience Programme for Afghanistan. This is a tailored approach for integrated socio-economic recovery and community resilience and aims to support the Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus using UNDP’s six signature solutions. The programme will provide emergency support for community livelihoods and contribute to greater resilience to future shocks in the most cost effective and sustainable manner as possible. The ABADEI prorgamme will be implemented at the regional (sub-national) level. At the same time, in light of the developments on the ground, UNDP needs to restructure its existing projects. Thus, it is envisaged that some of the projects will be fully absorbed into the ABADEI programme; others will continue running in parallel contributing nevertheless to the ABADEI Integrated Results; while a third category of projects which can no longer function in current context will be closed.
As articulated in the UNDP Strategic Plan 2022-2025, accelerating and scaling development impact, building resilience and human security includes preventive / early action and effective response to crisis. Within the UNDP Global Policy Network, the Crisis Bureau (CB) guides UNDP’s corporate crisis and fragility related strategies and vision for crisis prevention, response and recovery. The Bureau has the responsibility for support to prevention, crisis response, resilience, recovery and peacebuilding work under the auspices of UNDP’s Strategic Plan. At the country-level, UNDP works with international partners, the UN Country Team and national implementing partners to launch and deliver a comprehensive, risk-informed crisis response programme composed of interventions, inter alia, in the areas of socioeconomic resilience and recovery as well as maintenance of key health services.
Under the direct supervision of the Trust Fund Manager, the National Consultant will provide support on the development of a branded website for the STFA, which will showcase the participants’ social media campaigns as well in the context of the ABADEI Strategy and perform strategic liaisons for implementation of the ABADEI strategy with other Participating United Nation Organizations (PUNO).
The incumbent is expected to display initiative, a positive approach, and strong client orientation. As such, s/he might be required to undertake other emerging tasks and additional duties as required by the direct supervisor or senior management.
