Lead Author/Team Leader of 2019 National Human Development Report (NHDR 2019), Social Inclusion in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH)
|Location :||BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA|
|Application Deadline :||29-Mar-19 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||International Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Duration of Initial Contract :||15 April-30 August 2019|
In 2007, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) designed the award winning National Human Development Report with a focus on social exclusion, which revealed that half of the population of BiH is socially excluded. In practical terms this means that they are unable to have a normal standard of living, are not covered by health insurance, have no access to education, cannot participate in society and/or have no adequate access to services. The NHDR 2007 also identified that approximately 22% of the country’s population is extremely socially excluded from the most basic processes and needs.
UNDP leads the formulation of the NHDR 2019 and will contribute to the content of the report with its expertise, as well as the UN’s experience in addressing social exclusion through its work in BiH.
UNDP will support the Lead Author/Team Leader in producing a high-quality report as well as in establishing all the necessary platforms for dialogue between stakeholders in order to take the opportunity of the NHDR 2019 to make a real breakthrough for social inclusion in BiH.
The National Human Development Report Lead Author/Team Leader will be responsible for delivering a high-quality NHDR 2019 publication to UNDP, and in supporting UNDP in its launch, promotion and post-launch follow-up events.
The NHDR 2019 focuses on:
In the course of 2018, a team of national experts under the leadership of an international Team Leader worked extensively on a first incomplete draft of the NHDR 2019, focusing particularly on its quantitative aspects and measurements, including a set of Social Inclusion and Human Development indices. More specifically the quantitative aspect of the draft provides the following:
A qualitative aspect of the research has also been initiated through an innovative ICT based tool ‘Citizen Voices’. This tool, which is based on the principle Nothing About Us Without Us is an electronic platform for citizens’ consultation and engagement, that provides important insights into social exclusion root causes, outcomes and patterns in the country. Close to 300 authentic views and experiences of excluded people across BiH and suggestions on what needs to be done to improve their situation were collected.
Based on the above, the current first draft and its dataset provide a solid background for further quantitative and qualitative research and analysis for the NHDR 2019 that will center its narrative around the three aforementioned areas of focus as described in the Objective section above. It is expected that the process of the development of the NHDR 2019 contributes to improving the dialogue between stakeholders at all levels, utilizing the already established Advisory Board and other possible avenues in building up synergies with ongoing strategic initiatives on social inclusion in the country.
Given that the NHDR 2019 will be used to promote social inclusion in BiH, a voice will be given in the report to the most excluded and potentially excluded people and groups in BiH. This is why it is important to engage with the excluded people at all stages of the report’s formulation. In order to produce state-of-art analysis and policy recommendations, the work on the NHDR 2019 will also entail substantial engagement with key stakeholders involved in policies and initiatives addressing social inclusion in the country (policy makers, EU, World Bank, bilateral donors, NGOs, private sector, etc.). This thorough consultation is particularly important in order to ensure the quality and relevance of the final report.
