The ART Initiative – Hub for Territorial Partnerships is a UNDP’s global project that is geared at harnessing the potential of territorial partnerships through a variety of modalities, such as Decentralized Cooperation, South-South and triangular cooperation to localize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). ART is therefore offered as an entry point to the multilateral sector for international cooperation actors interested in harmonizing their respective actions in support of national and sub-national policies for sustainable and local human development.
ART aims at strengthening and expanding the existing alliance between UNDP and Decentralized Cooperation partners in support of the implementation of the SDGs at local level. It also seeks to strengthen the potential and role of Local and Regional Governments (LRGs) as development partners and to promote the principles of development cooperation effectiveness. Over the years, the initiative has contributed to demonstrate that regional, municipal and local authorities, together with other local governance stakeholders, have a key role to play in promoting sustainable development and making the SDGs part of national and local development strategies and policies.
In this context, the initiative would like to hire a consultant that can provide administrative support to the daily functioning of the ART team in Brussels. The incumbent is expected to work in close collaboration with all members of the ART team to ensure efficient flow of information, actions on instructions and agendas.
