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 2019 Peer-to-Peer (P2P) review in Afghanistan aimed to identify effective ways to strengthen the humanitarian operation in Afghanistan. The P2P review led to the drafting of a Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) Compact in mid-2019 as follow-up to the recommendations from the mission. The HCT Compact aims to reinforce collective accountability to people in need in Afghanistan by focusing on a number of cross-cutting areas.
The Field Support Unit (FSU) is an Inter-Agency common service mechanism created to help address some of the key cross-cutting concerns and commitments outlined in the HCT Compact. As such, the Unit is directly accountable to the HCT and also collaborates closely with OCHA and relevant coordination forums, including the ICCT. The Unit consists of a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of roving senior experts funded through contributions from multiple UN agencies and donors. Areas of expertise include Accountability to Affected People (AAP), Protection of Civilians (POC), Area-Based Response, and the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus (HDPN).
In collaboration with UNDP and humanitarian, development and peacebuilding partners, the FSU, through a senior HDPN advisor, aims to define what a more systematic, predictable and evidence-based operationalization of the HDPN would entail by producing a clear and concise policy and, more importantly, a roll-out strategy to operationalise the HDPN.
