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.

The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme is a capacity-building programme that aims to build the profile and improve the management of development minerals (industrial minerals; construction materials; dimension stones; and semi-precious stones). The Programme is an initiative of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), financed by the European Union and UNDP, and implemented by UNDP.
Development minerals are minerals and materials that are mined, processed, manufactured and used domestically in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and agriculture. They have a high degree of economic linkage and utilization close to the location where the commodity is mined. The mining of development minerals has important implications for sustainable development. However, they have not to date received adequate attention for their potential to impact livelihoods and few development programmes have provided support for this mining sub-sector. Often referred to as Low Value Minerals and Materials (LVMM) due to their low price as a function of their weight, and their relatively low value to international commodity markets, development minerals provide crucial inputs for domestic economic development (infrastructure, manufacturing, construction and agriculture to name a few) and have the potential to be high value in terms of domestic development.
Programme Implementation and Management
The ACP-EU Development Minerals Programme is building the capacity of key stakeholders in the sector, including public stakeholders such as regulatory agencies and local governments; private stakeholders such as small-scale mining enterprises, intermediaries, transportation and logistics service providers, construction companies; business development stakeholders such as mining and quarrying associations, Chambers of Mines, training centres, universities, consulting companies; and social stakeholders such as civil society organizations and community groups.
The Programme is being implemented at both regional and country levels. Regional level activities such as training will involve forty (40) countries from the 6 OACPS regions; while in-depth support at country level is being provided for 6 countries namely: Cameroon, Fiji, Guinea (Conakry), Jamaica, Uganda and Zambia. Four countries have been added to the existing focus countries to bring the total number to ten (10). Training and support will be provided in the following thematic areas of importance to the sector: 1) mine and quarry management; 2) environment, health and safety; 3) entrepreneurship skills; 4) market analysis and investment promotion; 5) geo-data and maps design; 6) community relations and addressing grievances.
