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.
The private sector is widely acknowledged as a key driver of the achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) across countries and regions. Over the past couple of decades, the private sector is increasingly being acknowledged and recognized for its potential to developing innovative, market-based solutions to address SDG gaps and development challenges in a sustainable manner.
Myanmar has demonstrated a strong political will for moving on the SDGs. The recently launched Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP, 2018-2030) for instance, explicitly recognizes a central role for the private sector alongside public entities and the development partners in the achievement of its SDGs. The MSDP specifically mentions the dependence on the ‘entrepreneurial and ever-resilient spirit of our people and the participation of our private sector, a main driving force of inclusive and sustainable development’ for the achievement of SDGs.
With its political, economic, and administrative reforms initiated in 2011, the government fostered growth by introducing market-oriented economic principles and attracting foreign direct investment and foreign businesses. Between 2010 and 2015, foreign direct investment quadrupled, and corporate governance, transparency and business integrity have started to improve. The private sector became an essential player in the democratic and market-oriented transition in Myanmar. In addition, as Myanmar continues to liberalize, investors and market players reward good corporate governance, transparency, and business integrity as they reduce the risk of investing in Myanmar.
In line, UNDP Myanmar is also concretely exploring how to work differently to scale up its impact on the SDGs by supporting to create an enabling environment for private sector engagement in ADG financing and forging of new private sector partnerships in areas of innovation, economic empowerment, natural resource management, disaster risk reduction, and building resilience to shocks and crises.
As Myanmar rapidly transitions from a relatively closed to an open economy attracting regional and global foreign investments, the role of the private sector both domestic and international with significant investments and presence in Myanmar, is set to be enhanced further.
