Pakistan is one of the first 8 countries in the world to become a ‘Delivering as One’ country in support of the UN Reforms Agenda through One Programme, One Office/business practices, One Budget and One Leader. The One Programme of the UN combines the efforts of the 19 UN entities in Pakistan and aims at minimizing duplications and responding to the national needs in a collective and coordinated manner.
UN has already started implementing third generation One Programme (UNSDF/OPIII). In line with the UN and the country’s commitment to Agenda 2030, the five-year UN programmatic framework, One Programme III (2018-2022), will focus on supporting progress towards the achievement of the SDGs in Pakistan. Furthermore, the UN Communication is mandated to support the UNCT to harmonize key messages and advocacy efforts to promote the UNSDF/OPIII.
In addition, UNRCO has been assigned to oversight a joint programme of UN-DFID to perform key coordination activities and work as bridge between UN entities and Federal/Provincial Government as well as with the donor (DFID). KP Merged Districts span the region bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan. They remain one of the most underdeveloped regions of Pakistan, enduring decades of marginalization, and economic deprivation. Livelihoods and employment remain a critical issue related to both social and economic development, and to issues of stability and governance. The passage of the 25th Constitutional Amendment with political consensus and its subsequent presidential approval on 31st May 2018 signals a historic change and will fundamentally alter the lives of 5 million inhabitants of the area. The merger modifies the institutional political economy, including the role of the KP Assembly and bureaucracy.
RCO requires an International consultant which will work on developing/drafting and production of final annual report of the UN for the RCO as well as work on quarterly reports/annual report, stories of change, communication strategy and any other related material required by UN-DFID KPMD Support Programme e.g. summary briefs, leaflets/brochures etc.

The consultant will also provide support to the RCO and will directly report to the Head of RCO as well as Programme Manager of KPMD Support Programme.
