UNDP’s Country Programme Document is closely aligned to the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MDGS III) and supports Malawi’s aim to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. UNDP’s work in the area of governance in Malawi contributes to the aim of the UN Development Assistance Framework [2019-2023] to address root causes of poor governance, through supporting governance institutions at all levels to harmonize policy, legal and organizational frameworks; to strengthen data systems and oversight institutions for enhanced accountability; strengthen gender and human rights frameworks, institutional systems, civic engagement; and improve participation and early warning systems. UNDP Governance Portfolio has been supporting the Government of Malawi in strengthening institutional capacity for sustaining peace, inclusive societies and participatory democracy through the Social Cohesion Programme for peacebuilding and conflict prevention. Through the implementation of the UN joint peacebuilding fund project, UNDP supports the operationalization of National Peace Architecture through the establishment of Malawi National Peace and Unity Commission (MPUC) and District Peace and Unity Committees (DPUCs) to strengthen institutional capacities for conflict prevention, with specific focus on borderland communities. The programme also aims at strengthening the capacity of the rule of law and security sector to identify, monitor and respond to drivers of conflict and human rights abuses/violations in borderland areas. The existence of many informal border entry points makes it difficult for border security and training on monitoring and applying border control measures to border control officials. Therefore, the project will conduct joint monthly flow monitoring in formal and informal border entry points through a population mobility mapping exercise (PMM) and deployment of a Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). This will ensure that screening processes at border crossing points are gender sensitive and are able to detect and protect victims of abuse at border crossing points in the screening process personnel to effectively monitor and collect data relevant to cross-border movements and human rights abuses at informal border crossings. In this context, the UNDP Governance Portfolio is looking for a candidate who has proven experience in flow monitoring. The selected candidates will report to UNDP and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental partners.
