On the ground in about 170 countries and territories, UNDP works to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. We help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress.
The Ugandan Vision 2040, paragraph 238 articulates peace, security and defence as prerequisites for a sustainable socio-economic transformation, democracy and national unity. According to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) the correlation between peace, stability, good governance and socio-economic development is aptly illustrated in a case study of Uganda’s recent history, where periods of relative peace were characterized by growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) averaging about 6.4% per annum since 2002. This is contrary to the prior period of low GDP growth characterized by instability. Successive World Development Reports for instance of 2011 and 2015 corroborate the powerful link between peaceful societies and accelerated development: States which have addressed conflicts in society have recorded positive development progress. The key challenge for Uganda, therefore, is to consolidate the peace by strengthening national capacities for conflict prevention and sustaining peace to avoid reversals on developmental gains.
UNDP Uganda’s Peace Security and Systems Resilience unit supports the Uganda Government in implementing its strategies for peace and security, refugees, Peacebuilding, preventing violent extremism and cross border intervention. UNDP is also implementing a PBF Project. The UN in Uganda formulated a UN Joint Programme on Harnessing Youth’s potential for Sustaining Peace in Uganda. This joint programme is funded by the UN Peace Building Fund (PBF) and implemented by three UN Agencies- UNDP (Lead), UNFPA and OHCHR working in collaboration with government and Civil Society Organisation (CSOs). The successful candidate will additionally support the Team Leader in providing project management support to sustaining peace interventions in UNDP.
