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 Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is undertaking an evaluation of UNDP work on Youth Economic Empowerment (YEE).
The evaluation aims to provide UNDP Management and stakeholders with an assessment of the results of UNDP YEE work, lessons learnt, and recommendations on the way forward. The evaluation will focus on the period 2015-20.
The evaluation will cover UNDP YEE work at global, regional, and country level. It will consider how the needs and potential of youth as a key UNDP constituency have been integrated in strategies, initiatives, partnerships and management tools, and with what results and lessons learned. Dedicated projects and initiatives to promote YEE through skills development, job opportunities, access to finance and policy engagement will be analyzed as part of UNDP’s overall support to eradicate poverty and keep people out of poverty, considering economic inequalities.
Specific attention will be paid to UNDP’s support to youth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to efforts at leaving no one behind, including young women and other marginalized groups (e.g. people with disabilities, indigenous groups, LGBTI community). Partnerships and collaborations to promote more integrated efforts will be considered, with a “whole-of-system”, “whole-of-society” and “whole-of-government” approach.
The evaluation will assess UNDP YEE work focusing on the following criteria: relevance, coherence, effectiveness, and sustainability of UNDP support in achieving its objectives.
The IEO is hiring evaluation consultants to assess UNDP results and contribution to YEE at global, regional and country level in all the regions UNDP operates (Africa, Arab states, Asia and Pacific, Latin American and the Caribbean, Europe and the CIS).
The assignment is most likely entirely home-based, depending on the progression of the pandemic and related safety conditions, with an estimated duration of 35 days (each consultant) in the period between May – September 2021.
