Mission and objectives

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. It helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience to sustain development results. Present in Guinea-Bissau since the signature of the Cooperation Agreement with the Government of Guinea-Bissau on 29 June, 1975, immediately after the independence, UNDP focuses its interventions in the country in the support to democratic governance, sustainable, inclusive and resilient development, working for a future that offers equality, dignity and opportunities for all following the commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNDP is partnering with the Government of Guinea-Bissau, local and international NGOs, the sister UN agencies, Civil Society Organizations, private sector and local communities to identify local solutions to face global and national development challenges through access to methodology, knowledge sharing, consulting and wide network of technical international cooperation.


The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) implements programs in order to empower more and more people and thus help nations to become stronger and more resilient. UNDP is present in 177 countries and territories and works with people to achieve their own solutions to global and national development challenges. UNDP has been present in Guinea-Bissau since the signing of the Cooperation Agreement with the Government of Guinea-Bissau after independence in 1975. Since then, UNDP has been implementing programs in partnership with the Government and Civil Society Organizations, promoting sustainable development, democratic governance and economic growth. To ensure an effective programmatic delivery, UNDP must uphold an adaptive management approach through which interventions can be reformulated as necessary to better respond to changing country priorities and needs. In line with the UNDP Knowledge Management Strategy and Framework (2022-2025), creating a system of knowledge and a culture of learning provides a robust foundation for meaningful action and impact through evidence-based decision-making. To this end, UNDP Guinea-Bissau is seeking a Knowledge Management Officer to lead the internal transformation process in coordination with the four programmatic clusters – Economic and Strategy, Sustainable Development, Governance, and Health and Social Protection – in view of streamlining the internal data and knowledge management processes of the Country Office.
