The Joint Office of UNDP, UNFPA and UNICEF (JO) is in the process of developing strategies to inform programming for the next programming cycle, aimed to coincide with the Government of the Cabo Verde’s own development schedule, 2017-2021, as well as the United Nation’s Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) scheduled for 2017-2021.
The current Common Country Programme Document (CCPD) was developed in the context of a singular organizational context - the Joint Office of UNDP, UNFPA and UNICEF (JO). Cabo Verde became the first pilot Joint Office of the Ex-Com agencies (UNDP, UNICEF, UNFPA and WFP) on 1 January 2006. This was a major step of UN reform towards the harmonization and simplification of UN activities in small countries, a common premise for the UN already existed since the early 1990s, but a call for further cost-effective and cohesive UN country programmes had led to the initiative to merge the organizations of these four agencies to one. Since 2010, WFP ended its operations in Cabo Verde. The JO is now comprising only 3 agencies – UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA. The Joint Office model consists of a single UN office of the participating agencies, led by one representative who equally represents all the participating agencies and is also the UN Resident Coordinator. The JO has one organizational structure and a single programme (Common Country Programme Document – CCPD) encompassing the activities and mandates of the three participating agencies (UNDP, UNFP and UNICEF), and uses one set of business processes, rules and regulations under a “support agency” arrangement. It was decided that UNDP processes, systems and contracting arrangements would be adopted by the Joint Office.
The present CCPD 2012-2017 will end in December 2017 with the new CPD 2018-2022 scheduled to be developed in 2017. The new CPD is being designed to fully align with the strategy articulated in the new United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the new UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA strategic plans 2018-2022. The CPD is also being developed based on analysis and recommendations generated from the final evaluation of the current Common Country Programme Document (CCPD) 2012-2017 and from the UNDAF Evaluation.
Due the specificity of the Joint Office, the CPD elaboration process is particularly complex as it should capture the mandates of each agency, promote synergies and take advantage of the JO model. A roadmap was elaborated in order to ensure (i) a sound reflection on the programme components, consistent with national priorities, UNDAF and UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA strategic framework, (ii) a broad consultation with national counterparts to agree on priorities and approaches, (iii) the detection of all support needs required to achieve a quality document, (iv) the production/submission of a first draft for submission to RO’s together with all required documents (final CP evaluation, resource mobilization/partnership plan, human resource plan, costed evaluation plan, Programme Strategy), (v) the finalization of a CPD consolidating all reviews and feedbacks.
The purpose of this consultancy is to support the Joint Office to elaborate and consolidate the next CPD and associated documents.
