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.
As one of UNDP’s flagship programmes, the NDC Support Programme (NDC SP) is helping countries advance integrated climate and development solutions through the implementation of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The programme was launched in 2017 at the UN Climate Summit (COP23), by UNDP, together with the European Union and the Governments of Germany and Spain. The programme is implemented in contribution to the NDC Partnership.
The UNDP NDC SP is currently supporting 40 countries to achieve transformational development progress by scaling up action on climate change. Specifically, countries will use their NDCs as a tool for transitioning to a climate-resilient, zero-carbon pathway which will help them lock in adequate sustainable infrastructures to meet the complex economic, societal and planetary needs of the 21st century.
In the lead up to the UN Climate Action Summit in September, the Administrator launched his Climate Promise, which will support 100 countries to submit enhanced NDCs by 2020. UNDP has committed $25M in core resources to achieve the Climate Promise. Working in close collaboration with partners to ensure complementarity, these Promise funds must now be swiftly programmed and deployed to priority countries to deliver desired results.
UNDP’s flagship NDC initiative, the NDC Support Programme, has been tasked with a critical, central role in these efforts -- providing an immediate “surge” of technical capacity to regional hubs to guide and support Country Offices to define services that respond to government needs and priorities. The NDC SP will continue to provide dedicated technical and advisory services to COs and share good practices and lessons learned. In parallel, the NDC SP team must continue to deliver and report on the Programme workplan and results framework.
The UNDP NDC SP is seeking for a consultant to provide administrative, logistics and travel assistance for the team.
