UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), acting as an implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), is providing assistance to the Government of Timor-Leste in the implementation of the GEF Medium Size Project (MSP) “ Strengthening targeted national capacities to improve decision-making and mainstreaming global environmental obligations into national development priorities”. Timor-Leste is fully committed to meet its obligations under the Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs), with this project (among other related projects) intended to facilitate an important step towards developing the capacities in Timor-Leste for an effective national environmental management framework.
The project is assisting the Government of Timor-Leste to achieve the national priorities it has set in its National Strategic Development Plan for 2011 to 2030, and in its current annual National Priorities by enhancing national capacities. This project is designed to build the capacity of the agencies to engage effectively together in the series of concurrent national assessment and planning exercises, the subsequent development and implementation of policies and substantial programme, and the monitoring of results and strengthening of future planning and actions. More specifically, this project will address specific cross-cutting capacity development priorities identified in the NCSA in order to catalyze Timor-Leste’s more effective participation in environmentally sound and sustainable development in a way that produces co-benefits for the global environment. Thus, the goal of this project is for the Timor-Leste to be better enabled to meet their obligations under the three Rio Conventions. This requires the country to have the necessary capacities to coordinate efforts, as well as best practices for integrating global environmental priorities into planning, decision-making, and reporting processes. To that end, the objective of this project is to strengthen institutional capacity for effectively managing information systems for national MEA obligations and monitoring impact and progress.
This project will be carried out via four linked components: Component 1 focuses on enhanced institutional and technical capacities to use data and information for planning and decision-making; Component 2 focuses on coordination of technical directorates; Component 3 focuses on global environmental obligations mainstreamed into select sectoral policies, legislation, plans and programmes; and Component 4 focuses on enhanced awareness and value of the global environment.
Project’s component 1: enhanced institutional and technical capacities to use data and information for planning and decision-making on cross-cutting global environmental issues is targeted to improve planning and decision-making in Timor-Leste to meet global environmental obligations. Main activities under this component will set out to increase and improve access to data and information related to meeting Rio Convention obligations. Particular attention will be given to creating knowledge and training on how to use best practices and innovative approaches to reconcile and create synergies among national socio-economic and global environmental priorities.
