Overview :

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience, and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges, and coordinating the efforts of the United Nations at country level.

Aiming to eradicate poverty, violence and hunger, UNDP supports countries in Africa to translate economic growth into long-lasting, inclusive human development, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the broader 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The organization works with governments, regional organizations, businesses, and communities, helping countries to develop capacity, share knowledge and mobilize funds for sustainable development.

As an extension of the UNDP Headquarters, the UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA), based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with additional offices in Dakar, Senegal, and Nairobi Kenya, serves UNDP’s 46 Country Offices in sub-Saharan Africa, develops high quality knowledge and policy, and is the organization’s main interface with regional and continental bodies such as the African Union and the Regional Economic Communities. The Centre also implements UNDP’s Regional Programme for Africa focused on enhancing inclusive and sustainable growth, widening political participation, and giving everyone a voice, and developing responsive institutions which deliver desired services and promote inclusive processes of state-society dialogue.

At UNDP, external and internal communication—nationally, regionally, and globally—is critical to achieving both development results and business objectives. Skillful communication contributes to transparency and development effectiveness, attracts, and fosters strong partnerships, and can boost resource mobilization. Communications also plays a crucial role in positioning UNDP as a credible and trusted development partner and thought leader, creating greater awareness about the organization’s work and its impact on the continent.

In order to ensure continued support to our initiatives in Africa, UNDP’s RSCA invites candidates to send their applications for inclusion in a Vetted Roster of external experts. The process of including candidates in the Expert Roster is described in the latter sections of this advertisement
