UNDP recruits 01 Procurement Analyst

UNDP recruits 01 Procurement Analyst

Background

The Liptako Gourma (LG) area, comprised of sub-national regions in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger, is home to approximately 14.5 million people. Over the past three years, it has increasingly become one of the epicenters of violence in the Sahel, experiencing a proliferation of armed groups. During the period between 2018 and July 2020 there was a fivefold increase in the number of violent incidents and conflict-related deaths compared to the 2015-2017 period. Inter-ethnic violence is also on the rise. The crisis has triggered significant displacement of populations in the three countries. As of February 2021, over 2 million people have been displaced, the majority of them (55 per cent) in Burkina Faso, followed by Niger (26 per cent) and Mali (19 per cent). According to OCHA, people in urgent need of humanitarian assistance in the three countries have increased from 7.3 million to 10.3 million between 2018 and 2020.

Despite these multiple factors of instability, the Liptako-Gourma sub-region has strong potential and assets to address existing risks and vulnerabilities. These point to factors such as the richness in natural resources and the existence of common socio-cultural dynamics, as well as institutional cooperation frameworks across the borders between the three countries. Furthermore, community-based conflict resolution mechanisms have traditionally been used and could be further promoted to serve as a basis for peacebuilding and equitable natural resource management.

To respond to this crisis, in recent years a number of initiatives have been established, or strengthened, for institutional coordination on security and development policies’ matters, based on the acknowledgment that exclusively military solutions are not sufficient to address the multidimensional crisis in the Sahel. Among the main initiatives are G5 Sahel (G5S), created in 2014 by the Heads of States of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger; the intergovernmental organization covering the Liptako Gourma region – the Liptako-Gourma Authority (LGA) – which has received an expanded political mandate, since 2017; and the International Coalition for the Sahel, established in 2020 by the Heads of State of the G5 Sahel and France, and based on four pillars: 1) fight against terrorism; 2) capacity-building of the armed forces, 3) supporting the return of the State and administrations in the territory and improving access to basic services; and 4) assisting development. UN interventions in the Sahel are guided by the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel (UNISS) framework. In 2018, the UN also developed the UN Support Plan for the Sahel to scale up efforts to accelerate shared prosperity and lasting peace in the Sahel, built around six priority areas: i) cross border cooperation, ii) prevention and sustaining peace, iii) inclusive growth, iv) climate action, v) renewable energy and vi) women and youth empowerment.

In this framework, there is a growing recognition that, despite the number of existing initiatives, more efforts need to be pursued to swiftly redeploy authorities and state services to local areas, once they have been secured from the presence of militias, and to launch social cohesion initiatives before the return of jihadists. Currently this is the missing link to ensure a quicker return to peace and stability. Therefore, UNDP intends to lead an accelerated and scaled stabilization effort in fragile and instable zones with a view to advancing the political framework required for long-term stability. This effort will enable the re-establishment of state structures and basic services while fostering social cohesion through continuous inclusion and consultation. Stabilization interventions will require a dedicated operational backbone, special risk management procedures in the form of a Stabilization Facility.
