The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works through 136 country offices to provide development advocacy, advice and assistance to 166 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Arab States, Eastern Europe, CIS, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Cluster on Development Impact focuses on assisting UNDP and partners to achieve higher quality development results through an integrated approach that links results-based management and performance monitoring with more effective and new ways of working. It seeks to do so by enabling UNDP and others to be more innovative, and to make more evidence and data driven decisions by identifying, testing, sharing, learning from and institutionalizing what works. It acts as a hub on all aspects of results-based management, development performance monitoring and analysis, as well as identifying, collecting, and sharing ideas on new and better ways of working across the UNDP network, social innovators, and the development community. The intern will be working with the Development Results and Performance Analysis Team (Results Team) of the Development Impact Group, Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (DIG/BPPS). The Intern will work closely with the DIG Results Team, Regional Bureaux, Central Bureaux and Information and Technology Management (IMT) team. He/she will report to the Team Leader of the DIG Results Team.
