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 UNDP Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development (the ‘Global Centre’) aims to identify, co-design and share innovative and technological solutions for sustainable development through catalysing new insights, partnerships and action on the ground in the countries where UNDP works. Our initial areas of focus are: Sustainable and Digital Agriculture, Sustainable Finance, and Smart Cities and Digitalisation. We aim to leverage expertise in Singapore, as well as across the network of 60+ new UNDP Accelerator Labs, and from experts and partners around the globe.
The Global Centre is a joint initiative of the Singapore Government and UNDP, currently being led by a small team that is focused on programme and partnership development – both with the public and private sector in Singapore and international partners, including the above UNDP network. Singapore Government partners include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE), the Economic Development Board (EDB) and Public Service Division (PSD).
The Sustainable and Digital Agriculture team is focusing on supporting Singapore’s 30 by 30 agenda, and supporting developing countries all around the world to adopt cutting edge technologies aiming at improving productivity, efficiency, resilience and sustainability of the agriculture and food sector, resulting in improving food security.
In November 2019, the Cultiv@te programme was launched, a global innovation initiative that aims to find bright minds and creative entrepreneurs, startups and R&D teams from around the world to solve challenges in agriculture. After a call for applications over 15 weeks, we selected 31 teams to work with 11 countries to pilot these technologies and innovations on the ground.
Other than Cultiv@te, the Global Centre aims to promote the adoption of digital farming technologies in developing countries and explore opportunities in the areas of food traceability, food loss and waste management and urban farming. The team is thus focused on designing and implementing initiatives that drive these objectives and fostering partnerships that can support them.
