The EC UNDP Joint Task Force in Electoral Assistance (JTF) was established in 2007, to further strengthen and facilitate the already existing EC-UNDP partnership in the field of electoral assistance and improve the overall efficiency and adherence of the projects to the common EC-UNDP strategic approach. The JTF monitors and supports the EC-UNDP Partnership in Electoral Assistance, which, since 2004, has seen over $1 billion of EU funds support UNDP-implemented electoral assistance projects in approximately 50 countries. The JTF also develops and implements, in association with the European Commission, numerous training events and thematic workshops, as well as knowledge products on matters related to electoral assistance learned from experience implementing the national level projects. The success of the EC-UNDP Partnership in Electoral Assistance was referenced in the biennial report of the Secretary-General to the General Assembly on the UN’s work in support of elections, where he said that “UNDP continues to deliver a significant part of its electoral assistance activities within the formal framework of its partnership with the European Union. In addition to joint projects at the country level, the partnership has hosted a number of global thematic workshops, including on elections and violence, the use of technology and sustainability in electoral administration…the first, held in Kenya in 2012, focused on taking informed decisions about the possible introduction of technology in electoral processes. The second, in Mozambique in 2013, discussed sustainability in electoral administration more broadly, including the future of international electoral assistance. Participants agreed that comprehensive and consultative feasibility studies should be carried out before introducing new technological solutions into election processes.”
The day to day work of the JTF is divided between country-level support and knowledge production/training events. At the country level, JTF personnel participate in the formulation missions that lead to EC financial contributions to UNDP-managed electoral assistance projects. These formulation missions both assist the EU Delegations in the preparation of their programming documents, as well as ensuring that the recommendations of EU Election Observation Missions are programmed into the eventual projects, where harmonised with both the recommendations of the UN electoral Needs Assessment Mission and the UNDP CPD/CPAP priorities. JTF personnel often also participate in the DPA-led electoral Needs Assessment Missions themselves, on behalf of UNDP. Furthermore, the JTF assists the EC-UNDP projects to the end of the contractual obligations; seeks policy convergence in both organization’s electoral assistance, including advocating adherence to UN and multilateral norms and standards; and better positions UNDP with the EC in the domain of electoral assistance and related areas. On the knowledge production front, the JTF encourages the professional development of EC and UNDP staff, and supports the capacity building of electoral administrations where the EU and UNDP provide electoral assistance support. This knowledge production and dissemination takes form of face-to-face trainings and conferences, research and publications, and development of eLearning courses.
During 2016, the JTF will also work closely with the GPECS regional component for Arab States in the design and implementation of a number of knowledge products with specific Arab World focus, for which graphic design will be necessary.
