Job Purpose and Organizational Context
Today Ukraine is facing the most serious challenges since becoming an independent state in 1991. The war has already resulted in significant loss of life, unprecedented displacement, internally and towards neighboring countries, and devastating destruction of infrastructure. The UN Ukraine Flash Appeal shows that at least 15.7 million people need emergency assistance and protection. Early projections indicate that if the war should continue in the medium to long term, up to 90% of the Ukrainian population could face poverty and extreme economic vulnerability, and the country’s socioeconomic progress could be set back by almost 20 years. In the short term, 62% of the population is at high risk of falling into poverty. Ukraine’s economy is set to shrink by 45% this year due to the war and even with a moderate recovery in the next few years, by 2025 the GDP would still only be two-thirds of the pre-war GDP in 2021. 

In addition, the country faces losses of many people’s lives and devastative destruction of infrastructures and economic bases. Currently, more than 50% of the energy infrastructure damaged, causing the massive disruption of energy supply nationwide with millions of people experiencing power outages and challenges in heating. Extensive scale of destruction of infrastructure, rehabilitating or constructing infrastructures and installing equipment with necessary supply of the materials is urgently required to restore or maintain life-line and key basic services, followed by removal or mines and explosives as well as debris. 

The complex humanitarian, development and peace challenges underscore the importance of programming that responds to the multiple dimensions of the crisis. Preventing deep-set reversals in development progress is why UNDP has launched a comprehensive programme to support the Government of Ukraine and UN-led humanitarian and crisis response. The UNDP Ukraine Resilience Building and Recovery Framework (RBRF) is grounded in working in partnership with sister UN entities and beyond. The Regional Development Programme (RDP) directly contributes to the achievement of RBRF’s key outcomes, while organizationally it is an integral part of a larger Inclusive Development Recovery and Peacebuilding Portfolio (IDRPB).
Targeting primarily the sub-national (oblast) and local (territorial community, city, or settlement) levels, the RDP outlines the responses to the multi-dimensional challenges faced by the Ukrainian communities, through their decentralized authorities, to manage effectively and efficiently early and post-recovery planning and implementation, while fostering sustained momentum around SDGs implementation and ensuring that the needs and experiences of women and men from all groups of society, especially the most vulnerable, are accounted for in this process. The Programme supports the local authorities to develop viable early recovery plans and implement them, and increasingly adopt sustainable (inclusive, gender-responsive, and green) governance practices that link SDGs implementation to crisis management and recovery.

In this context, UNDP is recruiting a Monitoring and Reporting Analyst, who will lead and ensure the development and effective implementation of the RDP M&E plans and reporting in close coordination and collaboration with the IDRPB and UNDP CO Strategic Unit personnel, including CO M&E team. The Monitoring and Reporting Analyst will work under the matrix arrangement allocating his/her working time to projects implemented as part of the Regional Development Programme (hereinafter - the IDRPB-Regional Development projects). The Monitoring and Reporting Analyst is responsible for the effective implementation of monitoring and evaluation activities, as well as the timely preparation of reporting documents consistent with UNDP rules and regulations, as well as donors' requirements, and contributing to the achievement of UNDP CO programmatic goals.

The incumbent will promote UNDP's mandate as a gender-responsive organization with zero tolerance to discriminatory and abusive behavior, including sexual harassment, sexual exploitation and abuse.
