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.


UNDP’s global Human Development Report and its Human Development Index (HDI) has been produced annually by the UNDP since the early 1990s. The index comprises income, health and education. In the global report, the index is calculated using government aggregated data from countries across the globe, resulting in a global ranking along the index. The HDI, and the complementing indices presented in the report (such as planetary adjusted HDI and the gender equality adjusted HDI) aims to bring a nuanced view to the features of developments between countries.


In individual countries, UNDP offices undertakes the work to produce human development reports that unpack the differences to human development within a country. Country-level human development analysis contrasts from the global level in that it uses household level data to produce the HDI, instead of aggregated government data. By basing the calculations on household level data, disaggregation between different sub-groups of the population is made possible.


The Myanmar Development Observatory (MDO) is in the process of producing a report on human development in Myanmar. In addition to a chapter of the household level HDI, the report will consist of two other chapters; one focusing on human capital and another on measuring the developments to longer term productivity.


This ToR outlines the work related to the report on human development in Myanmar, and to the finalization of another survey.
