The purpose of this procurement exercise is to contract an individual consultant who, in coordination with CPPRI and regional bureaus, will support UNDP’s work on PVE towards a coherent and aligned approach and ensure delivery.
The Crisis Bureau (CB) has corporate responsibility for UNDP’s corporate crisis-related work and driving UNDP’s vision and priorities for crisis prevention, response, and recovery, to (support) achieve the strategic results, outcomes and outputs of UNDP's Strategic Plan. The Crisis Bureau has a unique opportunity to enhance its interventions in crisis and fragile settings to address root causes, development deficits, and reduce vulnerabilities that bring together humanitarian, development and peacebuilding efforts in the context of the UN’s new way of working.
Within the CB, the Conflict Prevention, Peacebuilding and Responsive Institutions (CPPRI) team works on the integration of governance, conflict prevention and peacebuilding interventions. In this context the CPPRI team leads and coordinates UNDP's corporate, global approach on how to address the prevention of violent extremism from a development perspective, through the UNDP Global Programme on Development Solutions for the Prevention of Violent Extremism (“PVE Global Programme”).
Assistance for the development and implementation of National Plans of Action to Prevent Violent
Extremism as outlined in the UNDP Strategic Plan
While a security-centered approach to violent extremism is necessary, it is not enough and needs to be complemented with a development approach through implementation of the Secretary-General’s Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism (“the Plan of Action”) and in coordination with the PVE related sections of the UN Counter-Terrorism Strategy and other relevant SC and GA resolutions and decisions.
UNDP, with its global presence and reach, solid basis of already existing PVE programming at the country and regional level and convening and coordinating power is well placed to implement development solutions to prevent violent extremism and support the Plan of Action by strengthening partnerships through its PVE Global Programme and to contribute to the implementation of UNDP’s 2018-2021 Strategic Plan.
