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 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) articulate the United Nations’ universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity The UN estimates that achieving the SDGs requires overcoming a critical financing gap of US$ 5-7 trillion per year. It recognizes that the private sector has a fundamental role to play if the world is to achieve the Goals and ensure economic growth and poverty reduction that does not come at the expense of environmental damage, climate change as well as social and income inequalities. Private sector participation will be required at a larger scale than presently deployed through the global impact investment community. The 2030 Agenda and SDGs need to become a global framework for private actors to capture the benefits and trade-offs of sustainable development. This means encouraging greater SDG- aligned investments from institutional investors and corporations, using the 2030 Agenda as a proactive roadmap for capital deployment, rather than exclusively as a framework for the retroactive and often public finance focused assessment of impact.
To galvanise private sector investment and mobilise global private capital towards SDG aligned investments, The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has created SDG Impact as a flagship initiative to empower investors with clarity, insights and tools to achieve the SDGs. SDG Impact has developed an impact intelligence tool - the SDG Investor Maps. The SDG Investor Map is a flagship tool of SDG Impact at the disposition of Country Offices. An SDG Investor Map is a piece of market intelligence managed/coordinated by UNDP Country Offices to help private investors (funds, financiers, corporations) identify investment opportunities and business models that advance the SDGs. The Maps provide the insight and tools needed by the private sector to increase their investments towards the SDGs. They can make a significant contribution to filling the financing gap by mobilizing private capital for the SDGs.
SDG Investor Maps are created using an established methodology which combines secondary data research (on existing development needs, policy priorities, and market opportunities) with interviews/discussions with public and private sector stakeholders to verify findings and contribute new insights. The data are analyzed to distill Investment Opportunity Areas and data-backed business models. The findings of the Investor Maps are synthesized in an Excel template and uploaded into a dynamic online platform (upcoming late 2020) where investors can search for the market intelligence on investment opportunities by a variety of functionalities, including sectors, regions, SDGs as well as return profiles, market size and timeframes of investments that most interest them.
The SDG investor mapping process will be taken forward in parallel with steps being taken by the Government of Thailand to establish a more holistic, public and private, approach to financing national sustainable development by operationalizing an integrated national financing framework and the two concurrent processes may inform one another. The lessons and results of the pilot in Thailand will also contribute to the continued refinement of the SDG Investor Mapping process globally, alongside the lessons from other pilot countries.
UNDP is seeking for an expert consult services to support the research, analysis, synthesis, and stakeholder interviews required to create the Thailand SDG Investor Map.
