The UN Secretary-General’s bold new global reform, launched on 1 January 2019 in response to General Assembly resolution 71/243, repositions the UN Development System to deliver on the Sustainable Development for dignity, prosperity and peace on a healthy planet.

Central to this process, and as further mandated by General Assembly resolution 72/279, a new generation of UN Resident Coordinator Offices across the world are being strengthened under the leadership of an empowered UN Resident Coordinator, the highest-ranking representative of the UN Development System and the UN Secretary-General at country level.

In order to effectively coordinate the collective work of UN Country Teams in support of national aspirations, the core capacities of enhanced Resident Coordinator Offices will include expertise in coordination and strategic planning, economics, tailored policy support, results monitoring and evaluation as well as strategic partnerships.

In this regard, the United Nations Resident Coordinator Office in Iran is seeking qualified and experienced candidate on Providing Consultancy for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Frameworks and Programme

****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

With the Sustainable Development at its core, and in response to the General Assembly resolution 71/243 on the quadrennial comprehensive policy review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system, the UN Secretary General's report (December 2017) "Repositioning the United Nations development system to deliver: our promise for dignity, prosperity and peace on a healthy planet" puts forward a comprehensive proposal on further improvements to the Resident Coordinator system to ensure more coherent, accountable and effective support. This was further reinforced by General Assembly resolution 72/729 of 1 June 2018, which gave the Secretary General the mandate to implement the repositioning.

A reinvigorated Resident Coordinator system is at the center of a repositioned United Nations development system, and while the system has been instrumental in driving coherence on the ground over the past four decades, it is now insufficiently robust to respond to the needs of the Sustainable Development. The report stresses that Resident Coordinator offices will need to be adequately staffed to ensure sufficient substantive capacities to lead United Nations country teams. The core capacity will include expertise in coordination and strategic planning, economics, results monitoring and evaluation, and strategic partnerships, plus a robust standing communications capacity within the United Nations country team.

 

This consultancy assignment is part of this new generation of Resident Coordinator offices, with the new skillset and competencies required to deliver on Sustainable Development.
