UNDP through the Regional Programme promotes political participation and leadership among women; their economic empowerment; and their engagement in peace and security. UNDP works to advance gender equality and empower women as agents of change and leaders in the development processes that shape their lives towards a more inclusive, sustainable, and resilient world. Gender equality and women’s empowerment is integrated in the organization’s work in promoting sustainable development pathways, inclusive and effective governance systems and resilience building. UNDP’s framework for engagement is drawn from the four interconnected pathways identified in the Africa Human Development Report on accelerating gender equality and women’s empowerment in Africa: a) supporting implementation of existing legal reforms for improved gender equality; b) engaging women in decision-making at all levels, including in conflict resolution and peace consolidation; c) eliminating discriminatory social institutions that block women’s health and education; and d) providing equitable access to economic, financial and natural resources.
The 2022-25 Strategic Offer for Africa, focusing on six impact areas (structural economic transformation, natural resource governance, climate change, affordable and sustainable energy, women and youth empowerment, and peace and security) prioritizes the region’s economic and developmental transformation. Aligned with these overarching priorities, the Regional Programme for Africa (2022-25) is a flagship UNDP programme that contributes to regional development by addressing challenges facing Africa and amplifying opportunities related to the priorities and aspirations defined by the African Union and other regional entities.
As a strategic tool of UNDP Africa, the Regional Programme underpins UNDP Africa’s regional development priorities in four key priority areas: People, Planet, Peace and Prosperity. It also operates as an integrated continental coordination mechanism, and links regional, sub-regional and country development planning for greater effectiveness and results. Through its robust partnerships with regional actors, the Regional Programme also acts as an incubator for innovation, a driver of development and transformational change in Africa.
UNDP Regional Service center for Africa, through the Regional Programme, seeks to recruit a Governance and Peacebuilding intern to support the implementation of the regional programme governance, peacebuilding, stabilisation portfolios. The intern will work under the direct and/or matrix supervision of the Regional Programme Advisors pertaining to the portfolios and works closely with the three hubs in Africa, HQ, relevant thematic teams in the RSCA and external/internal partners.
