Contexte   Au cours des dernières années, les Nations unies et le système multilatéral ont connu divers processus de révision, de réforme, de définition de stratégies et d'objectifs dans l'ensemble de leurs mandats collectifs, couvrant les domaines de la paix et de la sécurité, des droits de l'homme, de l'aide humanitaire et du développement. Il s'agit principalement de l'Agenda 2030 pour le développement durable adopté en septembre 2015, une base stratégique globale qui engage les États membres et l'Organisation à atteindre un ensemble ambitieux de 17 objectifs de développement durable (SDG) et qui couvre les volets parallèles et souvent interdépendants de l'engagement multilatéral dans le cadre du mandat collectif des Nations unies. En avril 2016, les États membres ont adopté les deux résolutions sur le maintien de la paix. En mai 2016, la communauté humanitaire a pris des engagements de haut niveau pour soutenir l'Agenda pour l'humanité du Secrétaire général lors du Sommet humanitaire mondial. Sept de ces engagements fondamentaux soutiennent l'idée de travailler différemment pour réduire et mettre fin aux besoins humanitaires par le renforcement des systèmes nationaux et locaux, l'anticipation des crises et l'obtention de résultats collectifs en transcendant la fracture entre l'humanitaire et le développement.    Un « Commitment to Action » a été signé par le Secrétaire général et sept agences des Nations unies (OMS, PNUD, PAM, HCR, UNICEF, FNUAP et OCHA) et approuvé par la Banque mondiale et l'OIM pour mettre en œuvre une 'nouvelle méthode de travail' (New Way of Working). Cette méthode de travail s'inscrit dans le cadre de l'engagement pris dans l'Agenda 2030 de 'ne laisser personne derrière'.

Senior Economist - P3

Kenya, Nairobi Area, Nairobi - unhcr
Nonprofit/Community/Social Services
Other

Job ID: 21835     Duties and Qualifications   Terms of Reference for a Senior Economist in Nairobi, Kenya, Regional Bureau EHAGL UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is offering a Temporary Appointment within the GCR Section/External Engagement Pillar in the UNHCR Regional Bureau in Nairobi, Kenya. UNHCR is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people. Every year, millions of men, women and children are forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and persecution. We are in over 125 countries, using our expertise to protect and care for millions. Title: Senior Economist Duty Station: Nairobi, Kenya Duration:  February 2021 to  31 December 2021 Contract Type: Temporary Appointment Organizational context The Global Compact for Refugees (GCR) promotes a stronger, more predictable and more equitable international response to large-scale and/or protracted refugee situations. It represents the transformation of the refugee response model from the traditional camp-based care and maintenance programs to government-led comprehensive refugee responses that use multi-stakeholder approaches to: (i) ease pressure on host countries; (ii) enhance refugee self-reliance; (iii) expand access to third-country solutions; and (iv) support conditions in the country of origin for return in safety and dignity. Coupled with the broader reform of the UN Development System, the GCR offers UNHCR an opportunity to play a facilitator and catalyst role in the transformation of the refugee response model. UNHCR is expected to catalyse comprehensive solutions in a context characterized by the collaboration, collective responsibility sharing, and a renewed sense of purpose. By building strong institutional relationships with a range of new actors, including multilateral development banks (MDBs), civil society organizations (CSOs) and the private sector, UNHCR will facilitate effective interventions aimed at strengthening resilience and promoting solutions in refugee-hosting and return areas. It will support efforts to complement humanitarian interventions with development and private sector investments in order to lift displaced populations out of poverty, enable solutions, and encourage holistic area-based approaches to refugee response. The Regional Bureau for East and Horn of Africa and Great Lakes (EHAGL) is playing a significant role in operationalizing the GCR by strengthening and institutionalizing UNHCR¿s catalytic role at the regional level. Although the successful design and implementation of comprehensive refugee responses are highly context-specific and dependent on national and local circumstances, the catalytic and supportive activities of UNHCR field offices are being supported and strengthened by the Regional Bureau. In particular, the Regional Bureau is focusing on: (i) promoting a regional approach for comprehensive responses; (ii) translating global priorities into region-specific strategies; (iii) creating workable results-based management systems that integrate/reflect the SDGs; (iv) leading the engagement with political and development actors in the EHA Region; and (v) providing technical support and guidance to country operations. In order to enhance its ability to reposition UNHCR as a facilitator and catalyst, the UNHCR Regional Bureau for EHAGL is setting up an Economic Advisory Unit in the GCR Section of its External Engagement Pillar. The Economic Advisory Unit will closely work with the various Bureau units as well as DRS, Global Data Service, and UNHCR-WB Joint Data Centre (JDC) to enhance UNHCR country operations¿ effectiveness in collecting, analyzing and applying economic data and information to better inform UNHCR¿s protection and assistance interventions. The Unit will ensure that the various, analytical, advocacy/policy dialogue and operational/programmatic activities undertaken by the Bureau and country teams will be informed by sound economic analysis and modelling.
