Under the UNDP Philippines Country Programme Document (CPD) 2019-2023, UNDP Philippines’ work will be structured around three outcome areas that are aligned with and contribute to the achievement of the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022, the UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021, and the United Nations – Philippines Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development 2019-2023. The three integrated programme work areas are the following:
While building on the gaps from the Country Office’s wealth of experience in the above-mentioned programme areas, it would need to revolutionize the way it works and break from the past. It has become clear that transformational changes are necessary for the Philippines to tackle critical challenges and ultimately realize its national development goals and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to support the Philippines in this transformation, the Country Office has identified five inter-related, cross-cutting approaches to underpin its work. These are: focusing on financing and not funding to deliver results, applying innovations to provide new solutions to old development problems, deepening partnerships to ensure no one is left behind, re-conceptualizing the human rights-based approach and providing platforms for SDGs integration and acceleration.
In order to implement the portfolio of programs and achieve the above objectives, UNDP Philippines requires the services of a Programme Support Consultant to support the oversight and programme finance function of the UNDP Results and Quality Team. The consultant will assist in ensuring the timely implementation of financial management and assurance strategies through compliance with UNDP policies and procedures, and in the conduct of capacity building activities to strengthen the capacity of UNDP Staff and partners on the implementation of assurance activities.
