Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP: we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions. Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

Following the widespread devastations caused by Cyclones Idai and Kenneth that hit Mozambique back-to-back in 2019, the Government and its international partners began the long and challenging resilient recovery efforts. The severity of the damages and losses, estimated by the Post-Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) at US$3.2 billion, plus the underlying vulnerability and limited capacity in the affected areas, have made the recovery efforts much more difficult. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)’s vision of the cyclone recovery programme in Mozambique arises from key considerations related to development, governance and resilience. To realize this vision, in August 2019, UNDP established the Mozambique Recovery Facility (MRF) financed through a multi partner basket fund. The MRF is a five-year programme designed as agile tool to implement short-to-long term recovery activities that will contribute to build resilience to future disasters and address the root causes of vulnerability. In line with the Post-Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) and Disaster Response Framework, the Recovery Facility adopted a comprehensive approach to effectively meet the needs of the disaster affected populations in Sofala, Cabo Delgado and other provinces affected by the two cyclones, and now UNDP intends to join the efforts of other partners in supporting the victims of Cyclone Freddy in coordination with key development actors, to ensure Mozambique’s rapid restoration of development pathways in a manner that builds resilience. With financial support from the European Union (EU), Canada, China, Finland, India, the Netherlands and Norway and UNDP with its own resources, UNDP is implementing the MRF programme through an integrated approach, balancing early recovery and resilience building.

The Programme Has Three Main Pillars

Livelihoods and Women Economic Empowerment: Aimed at helping the affected community’s resilient recovery from the impact of cyclones and floods and rebuild their assets and livelihoods with a focus on women and persons with disabilities.

Resilient Housing and Community Infrastructure: Focusing on rebuilding resilient housing and community infrastructure to bounce back from the impact of disasters; and

Institutional Strengthening of GREPOC: with the main objective of developing national capacities and systems to plan and implement the recovery and resilience programme.

The MRF programme has a monitoring plan where the whole monitoring system is described. The plan is meant to guide the UNDP MRF Program and the Project Donors through the project implementation process. The project is using a digital data collection platform to record the activities and beneficiaries reached. This platform comprises an android system and a web system. To ensure that the digital platform is used efficiently and effectively, the database must be operational, secure and up to date.

In this regard, UNDP Mozambique is seeking the support of an experienced and highly qualified Mozambique National to help successfully support on data management, analysis and coordination under the three Pillars of the Recovery Facility as well as the IDP’s support project, in accordance with the corresponding project documents and within the existing budget and timeline.
