The UNDP Seoul Policy Centre (USPC) for Global Knowledge Exchange through Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Partnerships is one of UNDP’s five Global Policy Centres and constitutes an integral part of UNDP’s Global Policy Network (GPN). USPC represents UNDP in Korea, works with Korea on international issues, and shares Korea’s development experiences with other countries. Through ‘SDG Partnerships,’ USPC acts as a facilitator of global knowledge exchange on innovative and tested-and-proven policy solutions in three thematic areas:
SDG Partnerships create and deepen a triangular cooperation among Korea, UNDP (USPC together with UNDP’s relevant global/regional teams), and partner countries (consisting of UNDP country offices and their partner Government institutions). They package Korea’s experience and knowledge, facilitate dynamic exchange of lessons learned & peer-to-peer mentoring, and support the national adaptation of the tools at the country level, by channeling seed funding and technical support to the partner countries through existing project facilities of UNDP country offices.
For the period of 2022-2023, from the resilience portfolio, USPC has a specific focus area for sharing Korea’s experiences & lessons learned with developing countries on sustainable forestry in context of SDG implementation. The portfolio will also be exploring green transition topics with a focus on the ROK’s Green New Deal and the development of applicable lessons for other countries.
Under the overall supervision of the Centre’s Director and in close partnership with other members of the USPC team and the GPN network, the Consultant will support the above aspects of the Centre’s work covering the resilience portfolio within the global development agenda. The Consultant is expected to lead the resilience portfolio, manage the SDG Partnerships on Sustainable Forestry and supervise resilience team members.
The consultant will be working directly under the supervision of the Centre’s Director.
