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 Joint SDG Fund Joint Programme on Reaping the Demographic Dividend and Managing the Socio-Economic Impact of COVID-19 by Applying an Integrated National Financing Framework in the Philippines (JP INFF and DD) will apply the building blocks of the Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) to provide catalytic support – tools, technical assistance for strengthening systems, coordination, and consensus building on priorities as part of a whole of government approach in support of We Recover As One. It seeks to strengthen national planning and budgeting mechanisms to ensure more effective resource allocation and establish a more diversified financing framework that can leverage additional resources for the implementation of COVID-19 recovery strategies, and ultimately, the achievement of the SDGs in an integrated manner. UNDP (lead), UNFPA and UNICEF are the Participating UN Organizations in this Joint Programme, supported by the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office.
INFF is a country-owned planning and delivery tool that provides a framework for financing sustainable development at the national level. It aims to (1) bring together the full range of financing sources – public finance and tax, aid, borrowing, and private investments; (2) align resource flows and policies to support national development strategies or plans; and (3) lay out a strategy to increase investment, manage risks, and achieve sustainable development.
One of the outputs of the JP INFF is to co-design strategies or action plans related to the INFF and innovative financing strategies, particularly under the JPs sub-outcome 3 (Strategies to support financing of SDG-related programs on DD and AP developed). Based on the ongoing country diagnostics on SDG Financing in the Philippines, amidst the narrowing fiscal space that challenges the public sector in financing the needed immediate program actions to cushion the short-term impacts of the pandemic, and to support rehabilitation and recovery measures, the role of the private sector as a development co-actor becomes even more critical. Building on the results of the ongoing Development Finance Assessment work, the JP INFF seeks to engage a National Consultant who will provide high-level support to the UNDP and JP INFF Core Group for the development of alternative and innovative financing strategies, with emphasis on the private sector engagement.
