The Local Governance and Community Development Programme (LGCDP)-II implemented by the Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MoFALD) and supported by a range of development partners, is transitioning it into the Sub National Governance Programme in the context of the new federal Constitution. The Constitution has envisioned the three tiers of government system; federal, provincial and local. The rights and responsibilities of the three tiers of governments are prescribed in the Constitution.
With this background, the LGCDP II has been extended for one more year as a Transition to Sub National Governance Programme (TSNGP) with the objective of supporting institutionalization of sub national governance for smoother and efficient transition management. As part of the TSNGP, the Policy and Programme Support Facility (PPSF), a UN Joint Programme (UNJP), provides technical assistance (TA) for the effective implementation of the larger Programme.
During the period of LGCDP I & II, significant achievements have been made in empowering women, poor and vulnerable people and communities through transformative social mobilization. The TSNGP has adopted social mobilization as its core priority. Hence it has planned to continue the social mobilization to consolidate the best practices from earlier Programme with the revised scope and different operation modality.
The Social Mobilization cum GESI Expert (SMGESI) will be supporting the TSNGP at provincial level through Provincial Support Units (PSUs) to achieve the TNGSP Programme goals, purpose, outcomes and outputs.
The Expert will work under the overall supervision of the Deputy NPM and under the day to day supervision of respective Provincial Support Coordinator cum Capacity Development Expert and programmatically s/he will work under the guidance and in coordination with Social Mobilization cum GESI Specialist at the Program Coordination Unit (PCU). S/he will be expected to collaborate with all the other experts in PSUs and initiate knowledge networking and contribute to a horizontal learning culture.
