========================================================================================================
See below for this postion's Operational Context
======================================================================================================== With over 1.8 million Venezuelan refugees and migrants and more than 800,000 Colombian returnees from Venezuela, Colombia is the country most heavily affected by the Venezuelan displacement in the region. The over 946,624 Venezuelans who have not been able to regularize their migration status in Colombia, have limited access to basic services and lack opportunities for income generation. The worldwide COVID-19 health emergency has further impacted the protection risks of Venezuelan refugees and migrants, displaced and confined populations, Colombian returnees and other persons of concern. More than 116,000 Venezuelans have returned to Venezuela through humanitarian corridors since the borders closed in mid-March last year, most of them due to loss of income, evictions, food insecurity and other protection risks related to the inability to respect quarantine conditions. However, re-entries into Colombia have been on the rise starting September 2020 through informal crossing points.

The Programme Associate would normally receive guidance from more senior programme staff in the operation/bureau/division. S/he may receive indirect guidance from other sections and units relevant to the country/region programme(s). UNHCR Manual, Operations Plans, UN and UNHCR financial/budgetary rules and regulations will guide the work of the Programme Associate. S/he is expected to stay abreast of the challenges posed by the operational context, the UN and humanitarian reform and institutional developments.

The incumbent is expected to have contacts within the organization and outside the duty station, as well as with partners and other stakeholders to collect information, monitor programme activities and implement administrative requirements. The incumbent will have to establish good working relationships with their peers at country level to facilitate the collection of information and other programme management related activities.

The incumbent is expected to work in line with the multi-functional team (MFT) approach as defined within the Program Manual, ensuring the participation of relevant stakeholders in all phases of the Program Management Cycle.
