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.
Papua New Guinea faces myriad humanitarian consequences from regular natural disasters (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flash flooding, landslides, tsunamis, drought, frost), conflicts, refugee emergencies, health emergencies, and governance issues. PNG frequently experiences localized disasters, but also less frequent large-scale disasters such as the 2015/16 El Niño- induced drought and frost and the 2018 Highlands Earthquake. National and sub-national capacities for and investment in disaster management remain weak. There is broad variation in national, provincial and local capacities to plan for and effectively respond to humanitarian emergencies. The need to strengthen coordination and communication between national and provincial institutions responsible for humanitarian planning, preparedness, response and recovery, remains a priority.
Following the departure of OCHA from PNG in June 2015, UNDP assumed the role of humanitarian coordination in addition to its overall responsibility to conduct operational activities for disaster mitigation, prevention and preparedness. The Humanitarian Advisory Team serves as the secretariat for the Disaster Management Team and provides critical humanitarian coordination, support, and advice to the Government, UN agencies, the Resident Coordinator, civil society, and faith-based organisations to better prepare for and respond to emergencies and crises. The team supports the mobilisation and coordination of effective and principled humanitarian action in partnership with national and international entities to alleviate human suffering in emergencies. The team also supports the National Disaster Centre to address key goals, including updating the Disaster Management Act, enhancing communication and coordination between national and provincial disaster management bodies, and providing technical support on contingency planning and needs’ assessments.
In this context, UNDP is seeking an International Information Management Officer to be based in Port Moresby as part of the Humanitarian Advisory Team.
This person will be expected to gather, organize, share and use data and information, and develop and manage tools, templates, and protocols for sharing and visualizing information to inform decision-making to improve the effectiveness of cooperation, coordination, communication and collaboration in humanitarian contexts. The I-IMO will also train and build the capacity of a national Information Management Officer.
