UNDP works in more than 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
We are now hiring a new generation of expert practitioners who want to contribute by offering strategic approaches to long-standing problems. We seek individuals who can communicate advice and new ideas across cultures and all strata of society.
Governance and Peacebuilding
More countries than ever before are working to build democratic governance. Their challenge is to develop institutions and processes that are more responsive to the needs of ordinary citizens, including the poor. UNDP brings people together within nations and around the world, building partnerships and sharing ways to promote participation, accountability and effectiveness at all levels. We help countries strengthen their electoral and legislative systems, improve access to justice and public administration, and develop a greater capacity to deliver basic services to those most in need.
Through the Millennium Development Goals, the world is addressing the many dimensions of human development, including the halving by 2015 of the proportion of people living in extreme poverty. Developing countries are working to create their own national poverty eradication strategies based on local needs and priorities. UNDP advocates for these nationally-owned solutions and helps ensure their effectiveness. We sponsor innovative pilot projects; connect countries to global best practices and resources; promote the role of women in development; and bring governments, civil society and outside funders together to coordinate their efforts.
Many countries are increasingly vulnerable to violent conflicts or natural disasters that can erase decades of development and further entrench poverty and inequality. Through its global network, UNDP seeks out and shares innovative approaches to crisis prevention, early warning and conflict resolution. And UNDP is on the ground in almost every developing country — so wherever the next crisis occurs, we will be there to help bridge the gap between emergency relief and long-term development.
HIV and ill-health continue to undermine human development. UNDP recognizes the wide ranging social and structural determinants of HIV and the synergies between health and sustainable development. In response, UNDP works in partnership with regional and global initiatives to strengthen national capacities for HIV and health. As a founding cosponsor of the Joint UN Programme on HIV and AIDS, UNDP’s work addresses aspects of HIV responses that relate to development planning and mainstreaming; governance; law and human rights; gender equality and key populations. As a partner of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, UNDP supports national capacity development and implementation of multi-sectoral HIV, tuberculosis and malaria initiatives.
UNDP’s managers, on the ground in 166 countries, share and learn from each other, and draw on best practices from both the public and private sectors, so that we can provide effective management and operational support to achieve development results.Gender Equality Management.HIV, Health and Developmentx
