 Background Information – Job-specific

Background Information – The Sanitation and Hygiene Fund (SHF) 

Operational since July 2021, SHF is a new and innovative Fund dedicated to achieving access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations. 

The Sanitation and Hygiene Fund is a UNOPS Trust Fund committed to saving lives and improving the well-being of people by improving access to sanitation, hygiene and menstrual health hygiene. The Fund will invest in country-led programmes to accelerate progress and sustainable impact toward the achievement of SDG 6.2. 

The Fund will maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of international development assistance and national investment. Staff at the Fund manage grants and other financial modalities, coordinate with partners, support countries, monitor and evaluate results, report on progress, manage donor relations and raise funds.

At the core of the new architecture is a country funding model designed to be an efficient and effective mechanism that can operate at scale and deliver impact supported by a suite of policies that define how funding is to be invested.  The SHF uses development, impact and innovative finance mechanisms, including co-financing by recipient countries, to secure sustainable funding and the long-term sustainability of its programs.

The SHF is looking for mission-oriented, collaborative, open-minded and flexible candidates who are passionate about global development.
