The UN RPP is a multi-donor funded framework programme formulated and led by the UNDP in collaboration with the Government of Ukraine and in cooperation with several partnering UN agencies (UN Women, FAO, UNFPA).
The UN RPP was designed to respond to and mitigate the causes and effects of the conflict. The Programme’s interventions are grouped under the following key Programme components, which reflect the region’s priority needs:
Component 1: Economic Recovery and Restoration of Critical Infrastructure Component 2: Local Governance and Decentralization Reform
Component 3: Community Security and Social Cohesion.
The Programme, which operates on the basis of a pooled funding arrangement, follows a multi- sectoral programme-based approach and is implemented using an area-based methodology. It is a unifying interventions framework for 12 projects funded by 12 international partners.
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis is significantly challenging people, households, communities, local governments, service providers, businesses, etc. in unprecedented ways and needs to be responded rapidly. While containing the pandemic and protecting people is the top priority, disrupted service provisions, supply chains, containment measures that are limiting economic and social interactions and falling demand put people’s jobs and income-generation opportunities at risk. That is why UN RPP is working closely with multilateral and bilateral partners to address the causes and effects of the conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic simultaneously, in line with UNDP’s Integrated Response for COVID-19.
As a part of the development of new projects in the framework of UN RPP including but not limited to response for COVID-19, UN RPP is seeking an expert on programming and RBM to support the analysis of current data and consolidation of new interventions focusing on Programme’s key components.
2. MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE ASSIGNMENT
The main objective of the assignment is to prepare an analysis of the current urgent needs of vulnerable groups most affected by the conflict and COVID-19 pandemic in the eastern regions of Ukraine, ensuring that proposed interventions are accurately integrated and consolidated as part of the RPP programmatic outlook. The resulting analysis, concepts and proposed interventions will serve as UN RPP programming and resource mobilization tools.
