UNDP positions partnerships and capacity development as the organization’s core contribution to sustainable development. In Angola, UNDP is responding to the growing demand for capacity development support by helping governments and partners to build the skills, knowledge and experience needed for improving peoples’ lives.
UNDP supports Governments in designing and implementing projects funded from their own revenue or from grants or loans provided by the Global Environment Fund, Global fund and other partners as well as by International Financial Institutions (IFIs). UNDP works with Governments and IFIs to leverage development expertise and resources by collaborating on analysis, assessments and planning, pipeline development and project implementation towards shared outcomes. UNDP also supports governments throughout the project cycle – designing bankable projects, implementing projects, and providing monitoring and evaluation oversight as a third party or fiduciary agent – such as for large-scale grants submitted through the Global Environmental Facility (GEF).
With declining Official Development Aid to Angola most of developmental projects in Angola will be implemented by resources channeled through public funds, loan and bilateral financing agreements. Support for the government in implementation if development activities is expected to be a continuing, and increasing, feature of UNDP’s work in Angola. UNDP’s expertise provides for technical assistance or capacity development services, in addition to areas of recruitment, procurement, and financial management. The benefits of tripartite collaboration, Government, IFIs and UNDP, include capacity development, faster implementation, lower costs, leveraged resources and increased transparency.
UNDP works to facilitate an institutional environment that is conducive to closer collaboration with IFIs in Angola, developing joint action plans, mapping opportunities for cooperation and organizing events and technical discussions to engage with IFIs and Governments to build the foundation for more effective development partnerships.
UNDP Angola is seeking an Institutional Capacity Development Adviser to guide and support the Country Office efforts across the portfolio in project design, in maximizing results and support Economic Growth and Sustainable Development and Governance teams, to use and strengthen partner country institutions and organizations. The Specialist will also support a shift in our approach, to move from a model where UNDP plays a driving role in developing strategies and designing, managing and evaluating programming, to a more facilitative model that orients our strategic priorities and programming around identified implementation challenges and of local needs. The Institutional Capacity Development Adviser will work under a matrix supervision arrangement whereby he/she will report to the Head of Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Development and under the overall guidance of the Country Director on matters relating to building partnership with Government, IFIs, private sector and Foundations.
