The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Timor-Leste is currenly is looking for a National Individual Consultant to provide the services as decribed below.
Timor-Leste currently does not have a holistic, national, integrated financing framework to ensure sustainable investments in the SDGs. With the technical support made available through this Joint SDG Fund, three UN agencies (UNDP, WHO and IOM) under the coordination of the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO), will assist the government of Timor-Leste to develop and establish a holistic and Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF). The INFF will help to improve the governance and coordination, articulate a financing strategy and strengthen the monitoring and oversight framework. Development financing is currently heavily reliant on financing from Timor-Leste’s petroleum fund. To reduce the reliance on petroleum funding, the Joint SDG Fund will help diversify financing sources and grow the fiscal space. Three financing areas have been identified for catalyzing strategic investments in People, Prosperity and Planet that emphasize financing - health, diaspora and climate financing, respectively. A strong INFF that mobilizes pro-health taxation, diaspora financing through remittances and financing for climate-related SDGs will be a catalyst for increasing investments in sustainable development.
The objective of this assignment is to provide policy inputs and coordination support to implement some of the key activities of this project. The consultant will liaise and coordinate with the Ministry of Finance and the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Unit (UPMA) of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in addition to other relevant government entities, non-state actors as well as development partners in order to organize various policy events, meetings, dialogues, and policy discussions to facilitate the establishment of a holistic and integrated national financing framework. A whole-of-government approach and mechanism will be established to strengthen government’s ability to mobilize public and private financing and investments that will be needed to achieve the SDGs and the SDP. UNDP is seeking the services of a national consultant for this function.
