UNDP Global Mission Statement:
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network - an organization connecting people around the world to knowledge, experience and resources to help build a better life. UNDP is on the ground in 166 countries, working with national counterparts to develop in-country solutions to national and global development challenges.
UNDP supports stabilization, state-building, governance and development priorities in Afghanistan. UNDP support, in partnership with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIROA), other UN agencies, the donor community and other development stakeholders, has contributed to institutional development designed to impact the daily lives of Afghan citizens. Over the years UNDP support has impacted milestone efforts, including the adoption of the Afghanistan Constitution, Presidential, Parliamentary and Provincial Council elections, and capacity-building for the legislative, judicial and executive arms of the State, including Ministries, Government agencies and commissions at the national and sub-national levels. Major demobilization, disarmament, rehabilitation and area-based livelihoods and reconstruction programmes have been implemented nationwide. UNDP Programmes in Afghanistan have benefited from the very active support of donors. UNDP Afghanistan is committed to the highest standards of transparency and accountability and works in close coordination with the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the UN system to maximize the impact of its development efforts on the ground;
Based on consultations conducted between UNDP, the GIROA and donors during 2017, a growing view emerged that the scope of LOTFA should be expanded to include the entire justice chain (police, courts and prisons) and cover all institutions across the entire Rule of Law sector, with an increased focus on anti-corruption. Simultaneously, the LOTFA structure has been revised to bring it more in line with international standards and best practices on Trust Fund management and administration.
As the revised LOTFA TOR becomes effective, management arrangements for the Trust Fund will also be finalized.
Organizational context of the position:
UNDP is currently designing new projects under the Security Window of the LOTFA Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF).
