Many of the drivers of conflict in Sudan are deeply rooted in development and governance deficits. UNDP’s work has long been guided by a belief that transforming poor governance systems to ensure that institutions are effective, inclusive, accountable, and respond to the needs of all, including the poor and most vulnerable, is essential for restoring the trust and confidence needed for peace. The lack of conflict early warning information and systematic update of conflict/context analysis to inform early actions that can prevent escalation of violent conflict is one of the major gaps.
In this regard, UNDP had successfully launched an early warning mechanism for conflict monitoring and reporting utilizing UNDP CRD (Crisis Risk Dashboard) platform for data management, analysis, hot spots mapping and sharing. The Crisis Risk Dashboard is a tool for data aggregation and visualization to support contextual risk analysis conducted by UNDP and the wider UN system. It gathers a broad range of datasets to strengthen evidence-based assessments through tailored use of overlaid visuals, graphs and maps. In addition to the global dashboard, two regional and some 20 country-specific dashboards are available.
The main objective was to develop a system of regular and systematic update and analysis of data on the conflict situation by systematically monitoring and reporting conflict indicators to alert potential outbreak, escalation and resurgence or relapse into violent conflict.
The National Officer will work under the supervision of the Head of Peace and Stablization Portolio.
