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.
In Asia and the Pacific, UNDP is increasingly being requested to provide governance related services that support governments in articulating their response to climate change. These services include strengthening government’s institutional and administrative framework to be able to deliver integrated climate policy and programming within a range of sectors; strengthening government’s planning and budgeting processes to be able to account transparently for climate relate services; strengthening parliament and civil society’s roles in holding governments to account for their response to climate change and supporting local governments in integrating climate related services into their programming. There is also an increasing urgency to ensure that the needs, priorities, and interests of all people, including women, the poor, youth, and minorities and others who are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts are included and that these people participate in the governance of a climate change response: in all stages of policy formulation, programme implementation and processes of accountability that determine a response to climate change.
To respond to the growing demands, in 2009 APRC established a multi-disciplinary team to deliver services which can support governments develop comprehensive approaches to govern the challenge of climate change in ways that support their overall development, particularly in the context of Rio+20 follow up and post 2015 development agenda. This team works across practices within UNDP and HQ, APRC, UNDP country offices and in partnership with a range of development partners at the regional level, to deliver this support.
Late 2012, Sweden has agreed to finance a 3-year regional project titled “Strengthening the Governance of Climate Finance to benefit the poor and vulnerable”. This project is based around three mutually reinforcing outputs – the first looks to strengthen the policies and institutional arrangements which will ENABLE PLANNING AND BUDGETING to effectively prioritise climate change finance; the second output looks at the government modalities which will ENABLE DELIVERY of climate change finance, including the national budget and government-led programmes; and the third output will work to SHARE experience across the region and globally through strengthening key regional institutions.
UNDP is now hiring a Climate Change Finance Specialist who will, together a Governance / Public Finance Specialist, provide the technical expertise required to implement the project: “Strengthening the Governance of Climate Change Finance to benefit the poor and vulnerable programme”.
