The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a global organization with 18,000 staff working in approximately 170 offices globally. UNDP works in development and crisis settings with the aim to achieve the eradication of poverty, reduction of inequalities and exclusion, and sustained development results. Coming together under the new framework of the Global Policy Network (GPN), the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) and Crisis Bureau (CB) sit at the core of UNDP’s global policy, programming, and knowledge capacities.
The current revitalization of these functions aims to better capture UNDP’s knowledge, innovations, good practices and lessons learned from country, regional and global experience, drawing from a network of internal and external expertise, in order to address complex problems. To this end, UNDP has recently re-established its global Communities of Practice (CoPs), of which UNDP has a rich history, to promote and support knowledge flows within and across the GPN areas of work and enrich UNDP’s global policy and programme functions. The new model of the CoPs has a more inclusive, flexible approach taking advantage of existing networks, both internal and external to UNDP, to build inclusive communities around UNDP’s main thematic areas of work.
Two of the key thematic areas the new CoP structure aligns to are focused on the topics of Energy and Environment:
Duties and Responsibilities

This Recognizing that each CoP member has unique needs and comfort levels related to participation, the facilitator will promote and offer a variety of opportunities and approaches for engagement. The main areas of responsibilities are:
Foster engagement among CoP members:
Scan the internal and external environment for relevant content for the CoP members:
