The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works through 136 country offices to provide development advocacy, advice and assistance to 166 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Arab States, Eastern Europe, CIS, Latin America and the Caribbean, working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Fragility, conflicts, crises and shocks such as the COVID-19 pandemic, undermine development gains, and block the path to a sustainable peace. Hence, addressing fragility is a key element in the work of UNDP’s Crisis Bureau and UNDP’s strategic approach to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
The ‘Crisis and Fragility Policy and Engagement Team’ (CFPET) works across the Crisis Bureau and with external stakeholders to prevent and respond to crisis and the problem of fragility. CFPET promotes improved development and peace results in fragile and crisis contexts to build safer societies, advance Agenda 2030, and make good on our collective promise to leave no-one behind. The purpose of CFPET is to inform and shape, catalyse and facilitate UNDP’s engagement on crisis and fragility issues and drives work for the Crisis Bureau on:
CFPET work priorities include policy development, partnerships and advocacy, advisory services, risk analysis and knowledge management. In the upcoming months, CFPET will focus on organizing a corporate-wide, internally and externally facing “Fragility Month” to highlight UNDP’s policy and programmatic work in crisis affected countries. Within Fragility Month, the annual event of the CoP Crisis Prevention and Fragility will take place.
CFPET is recruiting an intern to support these workstreams and the day-to-day management of the Community of Practice (CoP) Crisis Prevention and Resilience. The Intern will report to the CoP Facilitator – Crisis Prevention and Resilience and will work closely with colleagues managing the communities.
