Support to Umbrella Programme for Advisory Services to MOFA
Saudi Arabia, under the prudent leadership of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Ibn Abdulaziz, has launched the Saudi Vision 2030, which is seeking to achieve a diversified, prosperous economy. In achieving this vision, it is expected that all ministries and Government bodies would strive for organizational excellence, improving their services and qualified personnel, and building high-performing manpower. Looking at the vision, it is evident that it urges Saudi Arabia to open up to the external world, and the need to improve the consular services, as well as strengthening the positive image of the Kingdom, enhancing the regional relations. This accentuates the role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the realization of the Vision 2030.
Further, this advances the importance of cooperation with the United Nations System, with particular emphasis on UNDP. On the other hand, this requires promoting economic and commercial activities along with the interaction of the Kingdom with other countries, and the urgency to enhance the public services for citizens, the efficiency of the public expenditures and upgrading resource allocation.
This project intends to develop the capacity of MOFA to adapt to the changing work environment through 1) utilizing and developing the capacities and expertise of personnel; 2) applying modern technologies to meet requirements of the diplomatic and consular work; 3) integration of performance according to standardized criteria, operations and systems. In this respect, the Five-Year Strategic Plan of MOFA includes nine strategic objectives as follows: 1) an active foreign policy; 2) support to strong economic policy; 3) effective public diplomacy; 4) distinguished consular services; 5) professional protocol services; 6) organizational excellence; 7) advanced systems and ICT platforms; 8) effective knowledge management for decision support; 9) continuous training and leading diplomatic studies.
In line with the Country Programme Document (CPD) for Saudi Arabia, the support of MOFA’s projects will be crucial through maintaining cooperation with UNDP Country Office in Riyadh during the period 2017-2021.
Through this umbrella cooperation between Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the strategic objectives of MOFA will be initially framed in three broad pillars with the flexibility of modification or addition in line with the various needs of the Ministry. This cooperation comes in an umbrella with details in terms of activities and projects to be identified on an annual basis in support of MOFA’s deputyships. These will be set annually according to MOFA’s priorities and will be reviewed by UNDP’s project management in coordination with the deputyships for submission to the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
The key pillars under the umbrella cooperation are:
• Strengthening public diplomacy
• Supporting Prince Saudi Al-Faisal Institute of Diplomatic Studies
• Providing advisory services to the organizational units at MOFA: political, economic, specialized, consular, general affairs, technical affairs, planning and development, legal unit and human resources unit.
• Promoting the international representation of Saudi Arabia.
• Supporting the recruitment of Saudi nationals in the UN System
