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.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works with countries to expand people’s choices for a fairer, sustainable future. UNDP’s new Strategic Plan 2022-25 aims to build a more agile, anticipatory UNDP that embraces complexity, actively manages risk, continually adapts and seeks to learn alongside delivering results. To build this more agile, anticipatory UNDP – an organization ready to respond to many different possible futures – we need the capacity to consider futures proactively and systematically. This means seeking a diversity of perspectives that will push us beyond our usual ways of perceiving the world.
The Strategy and Futures (S&F) Team, part of the Executive Office supporting the UNDP Administrator, is working to achieve these goals by creating a futures ecosystem across UNDP that will cohere, connect and amplify futures and strategic foresight across the organisation.
One of the S&F team’s flagship products in 2022/23 will be the UNDP Global Signals Report. The Report, to be published in January 2023, will draw on insights from UNDP’s new Future Trends and Signals System (established in 2022 to continuously capture trends and signals and turn them into actionable intelligence for decision-making) to describe the signals and trends we see emerging in the next 3-10 years which UNDP considers will be significant for development; and to explain why and how they might be significant for development. The Report’s stakeholders include the S&F team, UNDP’s Executive Office, the Bureau for External Relations and Advocacy (responsible for UNDP’s corporate branding) and all UNDP staff who contribute signals to the Future Trends and Signals System. The Report is intended for two principal audiences: UNDP itself and the global development community.
