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.
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.
UNDP support in Uganda is aligned to the key development frameworks such as the Vision 2040, the third National Development Plan (2020/21 – 2024/25) as well as the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation framework (2021-2025). Anchoring on the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation framework, the logic of the UNDP Country Programme is that achieving good governance by 2025 creates enabling conditions for achieving high-quality human capital, which will in turn drive attainment of sustainable, inclusive economic development by 2035.
The present Country Programme Document (CPD 2016-2020) for UNDP Uganda has two pillars, i) Inclusive Effective Governance (IEG) and ii) the Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Development (SIED), with gender equality and women’s empowerment, human rights and the transformational development approach as the guiding dimension of the programme. The two pillars are implemented through five flagship programmes including; Rule of Law and Constitutional Democracy (RLCD); Institutional Effectiveness (IE); Peace, Security and Systems Resilience (PSSR); Inclusive Green Growth (IGG) and Climate Change Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction (CCR DRR).
The RLCD Programme, provides technical, operational and financial support for legal reforms and nurturing best practices with emphasis on: developing and updating select laws and ensuring their coherency; supporting the Justice Law and Order sector(JLOS) institutions to provide equitable access to justice and for human rights promotion; advocacy for strengthening the separation of powers; nurturing the capacity of institution of democracy to undertake mandated roles; and facilitating participation by rights holders such as the public, Civil Society Organizations and media in the development process.
The current Country Programme including the RLCD programme will be concluding in December 2020. The Country Office has developed the new Country Programme Document for 2021-2025. The new CPD has been designed to fully align with the strategy articulated in the new United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for Uganda (UNSDCF). The new CPD is also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and has been prepared based on a series of consultations with government, civil society, private sector and other and in-country stakeholders and partners. It has been designed to contribute to three interlinked and mutually reinforcing development results namely: transformational and inclusive governance; inclusive and sustainable growth; and sustainable management of natural resources and resilient development.
As the Country Office concludes the ongoing Country Programme and transitions to a new Country Programme the services of a Governance Specialist are required. Under the overall guidance of UNDP Senior Management and direct supervision of the Team Leader, RLCD, the Governance Specialist will contribute to delivery of the UNDP Governance portfolio notably the Rule of law and Constitutional Democracy programme.
