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.
Disasters from natural hazards continue to cause significant loss of life and property. In spite of increasing disaster losses, investments to strengthen disaster resilience remain a low priority. This is partly due to limited understanding of the impacts of disasters as the damage and losses caused by disasters are not widely known. There are limited opportunities to reduce disaster risk through development investments.
Following the severe floods of 2011 and responding to the need to systematically understand the disaggregated impacts of disasters, the Royal Government of Cambodia, with the assistance of UNDP, established CamDi (Cambodian Disaster Loss and Damage Database) in 2014. The CamDi is hosted by the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM). CamDi provides useful information but there are gaps, particularly in sector-specific data and the overall linkages of database with the existing sector specific and national statistical systems. Data sharing across institutions needs to be strengthened and sectors-specific data collection, archive and analysis need to be undertaken and institutionalized.
UNDP Cambodia is seeking to recruit a National Disaster Information Management Coordinator to update and institutionalize CamDi. The National Disaster Information Management Coordinator will work under the guidance of a senior official of NCDM and will work closely with identified infrastructure sectors. S/he will work in close collaboration with UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub (BRH) in Bangkok, Thailand and the UNDP Cambodia. The Administration Analyst and Programme Analyst within UNDP Cambodia will provide the overall supervision and monitoring of the National Disaster Information Management Coordinator’s performance, as well as assisting in the coordination and contact with relevant stakeholders.
