Coordination Specialist - P4

Democratic Republic of Congo, North Kivu, Goma - United Nations Development Programme

  Background   The Democratic Republic of the Congo has made undeniable progress towards stability, considering the formidable challenges it has had to overcome in the past 20 years. December 2018 marked the first peaceful transfer of power ever in the country's history and the formation of a new Government in September have fueled hopes that it will embark on the path to lasting peace, stability and sustainable development. Provincial governments and assemblies are also functional and have begun tackling some of the issues facing their constituents. The security situation in the majority of its 26 provinces has remained relatively stable, and at the international level, President Tshisekedi has continued to advocate for investment in the Government's domestic programme, notably in the areas of education, healthcare and infrastructure.    In December 2019, the Security Council responded to the Independent Strategic Review of MONUSCO through its resolution S/RES/2502, taking note of the conditions it highlights for a successful, gradual transition and a responsible exit of MONUSCO during a minimum transition period of three years. It also stressed that MONUSCO's activities should be conducted in such a manner as to facilitate progress towards sustainable and inclusive peace and development. It underscored the need to progressively transfer MONUSCO's tasks to the Government of the DRC, the UNCT, and other relevant stakeholders, emphasizing the need for joint analysis and effective strategic planning with the Government of the DRC, the UNCT, humanitarian actors and other partners. Following the resolution, the planning process for MONUSCO's gradual reconfiguration has started.   This context requires effective government-led mechanisms for coordination and information management with the intentions of catalysing the alignment of activities between political, security, humanitarian and development actors. This will ensure the complementary of conflict-sensitive programming and assist the prioritization of projects and activities both which are essential for sustainable stabilization. In particular, this would encompass the development of risk and conflict analysis, systematic information exchange on activities, projects, and capacities, and coordination of geographical and sectoral engagement. The World Bank is also in the process realigning its portfolio in the DRC and will undertake substantial investments in sectors and geographical areas relevant for the stabilization of the country and for strengthening capacities to prevent violent conflict and sustain peace after the exit of MONUSCO.   The project builds on existing collaboration between the UN and the World Bank in the DRC, in particular in the eastern provinces of South Kivu, North Kivu and Ituri. It aims at supporting coordination and information management to create synergies and maximize impact.    This closer collaboration between the UN and the World Bank is also taking place within a context of a broader consensus humanitarian needs will continue to require sufficient funding, a significant increase of strategic development investments into key areas are necessary to address root causes of risks, vulnerabilities and instability. At the same time, the new Government, constituted at the central and provincial levels, has shown a keen interest in better coordinating across development, humanitarian, and stabilization efforts. Thus, an area of high relevance for the MONUSCO transition process where the World Bank is interested in enhancing the collaboration with the UN, is core governance, intending to strengthen the capacity of provincial governments.   In light of the above, the main purpose of the project is to strengthen the UN's capacity to fully engage in strategic and programmatic collaboration with the World Bank and other relevant stakeholders to support government-led efforts in the context of the MONUSCO transition process. This will capitalise on complementarity and linkages across peacebuilding, community-led development priorities, economic recovery, and state legitimacy in the Eastern DRC in order to:   - Provide the mission leadership with strategic and analytical support towards the strategic collaboration between MONUSCO, the UNCT, the World Bank and other partners under the lead of the Government. - Establish analytical, planning and programmatic synergies and, as required, complementarities between the UN and the World Bank in the Eastern provinces in a manner which responds to multidimensional risks, vulnerabilities and root causes of fragility. - Explore feasibility of alignment and closer collaboration in other areas of convergence as opportunities arise, such as the Kasais and Tanganyika, in particular on the basis of the joint transition strategy for MONUSCO. Ensure that gender equality and women empowerment, together with youth inclusion, are included at all levels in the strategic engagement viz data, analyses, coordination, programmatic responses and financing options as relevant     Duties and Responsibilities   Summary of key functions:   - Provide the mission leadership with strategic and analytical support towards the strategic collaboration between MONUSCO, the UNCT, the World Bank and other partners under the lead of the Government. - Establish analytical, planning and programmatic synergies and, as required, complementarities between the UN and the World Bank in the Eastern provinces in a manner which responds to multidimensional risks, vulnerabilities and root causes of fragility. - Explore feasibility of alignment and closer collaboration in other areas of convergence as opportunities arise, such as the Kasais and Tanganyika, in particular on the basis of the UN joint strategy with the Government for MONUSCO's transition process. - Ensure that gender equality and women empowerment, together with youth inclusion, are included at all levels in the strategic engagement viz data, analyses, coordination, programmatic responses and financing options as relevant Provide the mission leadership with strategic and analytical support towards the strategic collaboration between MONUSCO, the UNCT, the World Bank and other partners under the lead of the Government.   Expected Results   - Represent the mission in Goma-based coordination structures and provide advisory services on strategic and programmatic collaboration between the UN and the World Bank and other partners in geographical areas of focus in the East; - Ensure that input and expertise are included in respective strategic planning processes, including discussions on MONUSCO's transition process, the development of the WB Country Partnership Strategy and the WB Prevention and Resilience Allocation; Lessons learned and best practices are collected and analysed to support the development of strategic communication on UN-WB partnership in the DRC.   Establish analytical, planning and programmatic synergies and, as required, complementarities between the UN and the World Bank in the Eastern provinces in a manner which responds to multidimensional risks, vulnerabilities and root causes of fragility and promotes stabilization.   Expected Results   - Develop and operationalise a framework to support complementarity and scaling up of programmes of the UN, the WB, and bilateral and multilateral donors in Eastern DRC and other identified provinces in support of a government-led concertation mechanism and create the necessary synergies; - Support provincial governments and especially the Governors and provincial Ministries of Plan efforts to establish effective coordination mechanisms across development, humanitarian, and stabilization efforts. - Ensure that programming is based on complementarity and on comparative advantage of the stakeholders involved Ensure that existing and ongoing conflict analysis are synthetized to inform conflict-sensitive programming in priority provinces.   Explore feasibility of alignment and closer collaboration in other areas of convergence as opportunities arise, such as the Kasais and Tanganyika, in particular on the basis of the UN joint strategy with the Government for MONUSCO's transition process.   Expected Results   Establish and maintain systems for information management to have a deeper understanding of the needs, gaps and opportunities in areas of mutual interest, in support of a government-led coordination mechanism;   Ensure that gender equality and women empowerment, together with youth inclusion, are included at all levels in the strategic engagement viz data, analyses, coordination, programmatic responses and financing options as relevant   Expected Results:   - Adequately include women and youth in the programming phase and take into account their specific needs;
