The Multi-Count Office (MCO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean States formulated its Sub-Regional Programme Document (SPD) for the period 2017-2021, with extensive in-country consultations, which was approved by the Executive Board on September 2016. The SPD outcomes directly reference the UN Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework (MSDF) outcomes, which outlines the strategic approach for all UN agencies (resident and non-resident) working in the Caribbean, which are both also aligned to the globally-agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UNDP, in collaboration with Government and other development partners, plays a key role in implementing the SPD, providing overall policy direction and in coordinating and monitoring progress towards expected results. In order to facilitate effective coordination, implementation, monitoring of SPD and linked programming and UN System joint programming, the Programme Assistant will support the Programme Unit, and will work in close collaboration with the operations, finance, and programme staff in the MCO and the 10 programme countries supported by UNDP Barbados as well as UNDP HQs to resolve complex finance-related issues and support the implementation.
