|Overview : |
As a trusted multilateral partner serving 177 countries and territories around the world, UNDP is uniquely positioned to help advocate for change, connect countries to the knowledge and resources they need to develop and to coordinate the efforts of the United Nations at the country level.
A core area of work of the RAI Team is supporting effective local governance and local development (LGLD) in urban and rural areas by strengthening the capacities of sub-national institutions and actors to deliver public services and sustain peace, ensuring that the state responds to the needs of communities in a more inclusive manner, strengthening social cohesion and supporting local resilience, including that of marginalized communities. Support is also provided to local governance as a multi-layered system, contributing to building effective relationships and coordination systems between central, regional, municipal and community governance levels. This also includes support to national and subnational governments to localize the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, through strengthened multilevel governance and partnerships for the implementation of the SDGs. Additionally, and in order to deliver faster and more consistently in the aftermath of crises, a Crisis Response Package on the Restoration of Core Government Functions, including a pillar on Local Governance, is being developed together with UNDP’s Crisis Bureau. This includes a set of tools for programming on local governance in the aftermath of crisis, as well a training offer to build the capacity of UNDP country office staff on local governance.
The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support is looking for a consultant to review the existing training curricula and resources previously developed for the in-person training on Local Governance for Sustaining Peace’ to select, adapt and convert it into a format and amount that can be used for the e-learning course format.
