Overview :

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the United Nations lead agency on international development and works in 170 countries and territories to eradicate poverty and reduce inequalities. The UNDP supports countries in developing policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capacities, and support in building resilience to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Knowledge Hub, a unit established within the UNDP Nigeria Country Office, is purposed to enhance its ability to make timely and evidence-based interventions, particularly in areas of preventing and responding to violent extremism, conflict prevention and human security. A new type of ‘development intelligence gathering’, i.e. continuous monitoring and data collection, is crucial to inform UNDP’s work for early warning, adjust interventions to maximize preventive efforts and initiate new thematic approaches. Trend analyses and ad-hoc policy briefs will also inform interventions of UNDP’s development partners in this field. Through harnessing the potential offered by both old and new sources of data, it is UNDP’s hope that the accuracy and precision of its development responses are increased and a strong foundation for meaningful public policy making, efficient resource allocation and effective public service delivery is created.

It is against this backdrop, that the Knowledge Hub seeks to engage the services of a Professional Writer to support the visibility of the Unit’s work by creating vibrant and compelling stories/ reports based on UNDP’s brand guidelines for a consistent and professional look.
