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 4: Enhanced awareness and value of the global environment to meet socio-economic priorities among other activities will focus on developing educational curricula for civil servants and academic institutions that promote better environmental information management and emphasize global environmental values and best practice approaches.
Instituto Nacional de Administração Pública (in Portuguese) or National Institute of Public Administration (in English), formerly the Civil Service Academy (CSA) was established on 8 April 2000. INAP plays his role as the major vehicle for human resource capacity development for all civil servants in this country. As the key Institution responsible for capacity building, INAP places priority on addressing the capacity development needs of Timor-Leste civil service at both National and Local Government Administration levels. To do this, INAP delivers short-term training programs in public administration as well as manages and implements specialized courses on public administration which are equivalent to the intermediate and advanced courses (Certificate and Diploma) and other programs of under- and post-graduate studies. To fulfil its role as a capacity builder and a training institution, INAP provide education and training to a total of more than 12,000 civil servants (in permanent and temporary positions) in Timor-Leste. INAP is working hard and continues to dedicate to build civil servants of high quality, who are, at once, creative, disciplined, accountable, effective and efficient.
