Overview :

Dear Interested and eligible International Individual Consultants;

The United Nations Development Programme ( UNDP ) Ethiopia Country Office plans to Recruit  an  International Consultant to serve as a data Specialist for the project of Social protection for Sustainable Development in Africa.

Background of the Assignment:

Over the past two decades, African countries have achieved accelerated economic growth and noteworthy social and political achievements. However, there is a general agreement that such economic expansion has not been inclusive of the extremely poor and vulnerable..

This scenario calls for urgent action to promote better distribution of the economic gains and increase social resilience. The recent experience of social protection schemes in Latin America as well as in some African countries shows that well-designed social protection schemes, including interventions in the labour markets, can tackle structural determinants of poverty and vulnerability leading to a transformative effect on the whole society, as well as address many of the SDG’s targets, and act as a pivotal tool to advance the 2030 Agenda as well as the Africa-wide development vision, Agenda 2063.
