Mission and objectives

UNDP is the lead development agency of the United Nations, working to support countries’ work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. UNDP has more than 50 years of experience leading the UN’s development work, providing knowledge, practical expertise, and a legacy of trust. UNDP is working with the Royal Thai government, civil society, national partners and the Thai public to help find solutions to persistent development challenges. We continue to work to provide technical expertise, such as improved data quality and collection, international expertise on environmental issues like climate change finance and adaptation. This UNV assignment is part of UNDP’s Accelerator Lab Network, the largest and fastest learning global network on development challenges. UNDP has already set up 92 labs in 116 countries including Thailand embedded within UNDP’s global architecture and country platforms. The objective of this network is to bring forward actionable insights and reimagine, with policymakers, local communities and social innovators, sustainable development for the 21st century. The Accelerator Labs are testing new ways of working and creating a new capability for decisionmakers to explore, experiment, and grow portfolios of mutually reinforcing solutions to tackle today’s challenges. We use the power of the crowd, machine learning and distributed decision making to support partners to understand problems, develop new solutions, promote more inclusive decision making, and provide better oversight of what is done. We identify grassroot solutions and stretch their potential to accelerate development. We apply experimentation closely with government partners to grow this as a mode of operating to reduce costs of large scale public sector reforms. Experimentation helps us learn whether particular assumptions are accurate before deploying solutions at scale, especially in the rapidly evolving contexts that often dominate development progress.

Context

UNDP invests in the Global Policy Network (GPN), a network of field-based and global technical expertise across a wide range of knowledge domains and in support of the signature solutions and organizational capabilities envisioned in the Strategic Plan. Within the GPN, the Bureau for Policy and Program Support (BPPS) has the responsibility for developing all relevant policy and guidance to support the results of UNDP’s Strategic Plan. BPPS’s staff provides technical advice to Country Offices; advocates for UNDP corporate messages, represents UNDP at multi-stakeholder for a including public-private dialogues, government and civil society dialogues, and engages in UN inter-agency coordination in specific thematic areas. BPPS works closely with UNDP’s Crisis Bureau (CB) to support emergency and crisis response. BPPS ensures that issues of risk are fully integrated into UNDP’s development programs. BPPS assists UNDP and partners to achieve higher quality development results through an integrated approach that links results-based management and performance monitoring with more effective and new ways of working. BPPS supports UNDP and partners to be more innovative, knowledge and data driven including in its program support efforts. Governance is one of UNDP’s six signature solutions through which it supports partner countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda through structural transformation, building resilience, and leaving no-one behind. UNDP’s Inclusive Processes and Institutions (IPI) portfolio supports parliaments globally to form partnerships for more accountable, effective and inclusive governance for sustainable human development, and peace. One such partnership involves advancing the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda.
