Background

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (PAPP) was established through a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 December 1978, calling upon UNDP “to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people”. In partnership with Palestinian institutions, civil society, communities and donors, UNDP’s goal is to empower the Palestinian People to establish a viable State that is able to realize the right to development for its people and support their socioeconomic resilience. Since its establishment, UNDP/PAPP has delivered over USD 1 5 billion in development assistance to the Palestinian people.  UNDP/PAPP places empowerment, resilience and sustainability at the center of its operation and focuses on three priority areas: the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and Area C of the West Bank, where the needs are the greatest. UNDP/PAPP is active in four thematic areas: democratic governance and the rule of law; economic empowerment and private sector development; environment and management of natural resources; and public and social infrastructure.

 
Specifically, this assignment will focus on the Transparency, Evidence and Accountability (TEA) programme which is a UK funded programme of support to the Palestinian Authority (PA). The programme is designed to help deliver on the Middle East Peace Process (MEPP) objectives that include prioritizing PA’s institutional development, improving accountability and promoting transparency to preserve the political viability of two state solution in the absence of significant political change: a key priority going forward is maintaining PA capacity, financial viability, and accountability.
