Background

UNFPA’s mission is to work towards delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. In humanitarian contexts, UNFPA works in collaboration with partners to provide lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services and to implement and coordinate gender based violence prevention, protection and response programs. Risk mitigation and preparedness are also core interventions in order to build countries’ and communities’ resilience.

The number of disasters and people affected have increased globally and we are faced with growing humanitarian needs. Although emergencies are becoming more complex and more frequent, the gap between humanitarian needs and the resources available to meet those needs continues to grow.

This increased demand for UNFPA to respond to humanitarian situations has led to a doubling of the organization’s humanitarian requirements, from $78 million in 2006 to $175 million in 2014 –the largest ever appeal in UNFPA history. This growing trend mirrors the global humanitarian trends. More is expected of UNFPA than ever before to provide life-saving assistance.

UNFPA is currently looking for talent with the below profiles to quickly respond to emergencies.
