The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has been working in Haiti since June 28, 1973. The UNDP is part of the United Nations system along with 17 other agencies also present in the country. Its presence is defined by a basic agreement with the Government of Haiti, which sets out the basic conditions under which the program will support the Government in the implementation of its development projects.

UNDP supports the Government of Haiti in its long-term approach to sustainable development by supporting capacity building of national institutions, the local private sector, and communities in Haiti to better prepare the country's future and build a strong and resilient nation.

UNDP interventions are based on a Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan is grounded in UNDP's ongoing commitment to eradicating poverty, support countries in their pathways towards the SDGs and working towards the Paris Agreement. It envisions bold goals, making a difference to millions of lives, including through tackling multidimensional poverty, energy access, elections participation and development financing. It explains how UNDP will develop our six signature solutions – powered by digitalization, innovation, and development financing – for greater impact. In order to achieve these goals, communication is key.

The role of the Country Office Communications Unit is to adopt UNDP’s global communication strategy to a local context and the Country Office development priorities. Through the production of high-quality communication materials and innovative use of relevantly targeted communication channels (internal and external), the communications team works collaboratively to position UNDP as a leader in the development arena, promote visibility of UNDP program outcomes/development results, mobilize support for Sustainable Development Goals in the country, and practice delivery as one UN. 




Under the guidance and direct supervision of the DRR, the Communications Analyst implements the corporate communications strategy, as well as provides inputs to the design, management and implementation of the Country Office communications and publication strategies, which are geared to influence the development agenda, promote public and media outreach, and mobilize political and financial support for UNDP.

The Communications Analyst works in close collaboration with the Programme and Operations teams, staff of other UN Agencies, UNDP Communications Region and HQ staff, government officials, international and local media, subject matter experts, donors, and civil society to ensure successful implementation of UNDP’s communication strategy in the Country Office.
