China has become a major emerging player in global governance, able to share its valuable experience with the entire international community, acting at the same time as a bridge-builder between institutions and nations in the sustainable development era. China takes a proactive role in shaping new initiatives which complement existing global governance mechanisms. One example is the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which has been growing steadily.
Since the launch of UNDP China Global Governance Initiative in 2012, UNDP China has become a key partner of the Government of China in international development cooperation and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNDP is recognized as a bridge between China and the world – both in terms of understanding of development context, as a channel for international development assistance, and as part of and beyond South-South cooperation. Moreover, the Chinese government counterparts have characterized UNDP as a chosen partner for advising on development cooperation approaches and integrated development approaches in line with the SDGs.
Against this backdrop, UNDP China helps facilitate substantial and long-term progress in China’s international development cooperation.
Towards this end, the office is looking for a Research Associate/Policy Consultant to help the UNDP China CO to conduct evidence-based research and develop think-pieces under the global governance initiative and Belt and Road programme in the Global Partnership and Liaison (GPL) Team.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the guidance of the Assistant Country Director and Team Leader of the GPL Team, the /Policy Consultant is responsible for identifying and producing and/or commissioning research and analysis on global and regional development issues. He/she will assist the team to identify policy options in the areas of global and regional development studies, with focus on the Belt and Road and the role of China. He/she is expected to:
1) Support to identify policy options and produce independent research on global economic governance and regional development cooperation with focus on the Belt and Road
2) Provide policy support to the preparation of the specific initiatives and relevant evidence-based products to enhance the policy impact of UNDP.
3) Support to the team’s specific initiatives and daily housekeeping activities
