The UNDP's offer for Africa aims to strengthen its position as Africa's premier enabler and integrator for the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the AU 2063 Agenda. Central to UNDP support to Africa is the landmark African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) expected to contribute to developing wide-reaching regional value chains for goods and services across the continent and creating much-needed jobs for citizens, especially youth. The implementation of the AfCFTA presents a great opportunity for African countries to deepen regional integration, foster intra-African trade and achieve prosperity for all.  The importance of regional integration is all the more evident in the wake of the COVID-19 shock, which is already triggering a reconfiguration of global value chains with greater emphasis on dependability and re-/near-shoring. But structural transformation and inclusive gains from the AfCFTA will not be automatic.  Attaining them will require deliberate actions to build and sustain productive capacities while creating enabling environment for businesses to produce and trade towards regional markets. An inclusive AfCFTA that ensure prosperity shall first and foremost reduce poverty and inequality across the continent. Attention shall be turned to vulnerable business groups, especially MSMEs who are the backbone of production, trade and employment in Africa. Within this group, deliberate actions shall be designed to ensure women and youth, who account for a significant share of Africa's population, business owners and workforce are better integrated into value chains through profitable business opportunities and decent jobs. In partnership with UN and non-UN agencies, UNDP country offices and regional teams/hubs have begun to provide support to national and regional level processes to enhance countries' preparedness to produce and trade in the AfCFTA marketplaces. UNDP in 2020 launched a coordinated program of support to the implementation of the AfCFTA at national, regional, and continental levels. To accompany AU Members and African businesses to realize the promise of trade for development, UNDP needs to strengthen its capacity. As AfCFTA States Parties start trading under the AfCFTA on 1 January 2021, UNDP continues to strengthen implementation of Africa's integration agenda through an AfCFTA regional project for the period 2022- 2025 and national level interventions. These efforts are expected to make contribution to Africa's structural economic transformation ? accelerating industrialization, value addition, diversification, and sustainable economic and social empowerment. Dedicated actions are deployed to support, at national, regional, and continental levels, strengthening the capacities of women and youth-owned enterprises to maximize opportunities arising from more integrated markets.   Position Purpose: The Regional Programme Specialist is being sought to implement UNDP's AfCFTA related interventions at regional and national levels and monitor developments in UNDP's support programme to Africa's trade integration. The Regional Programme Specialist will report to the AfCFTA Programme Advisor / Project Manager, under the overarching leadership of the Head, Inclusive Growth, in close collaboration with the Regional Programme Coordinator.

As such, UN Volunteers should dedicate a part of their working time to some of the following suggested activities: - Strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the concept of volunteerism by reading relevant UNV and external publications and take active part in UNV activities (for instance in events that mark International Volunteer Day). - Be acquainted with and build on traditional and/or local forms of volunteerism in the host country. - Provide annual and end of assignment self- reports on UN Volunteer actions, results, and opportunities. - Contribute articles/write-ups on field experiences and submit them for UNV publications/websites, newsletters, press releases, etc. - Assist with the UNV Buddy Programme for newly arrived UN Volunteers. - Promote or advise local groups in the use of online volunteering or encourage relevant local individuals and organizations to use the UNV Online Volunteering service whenever technically possible.   Eligibility criteria Age: 27 - 80 Nationality: Candidate must be a national of a country other than the country of assignment.   Requirements Required experience: - 4 years of experience in Gender, Agriculture, Development Studies, Social Sciences, or related fields. - Experience in setting priorities, budgets, work plans, participating in program development and proposal writing. - Demonstrated interest and/or experience (up to 3 years) in the areas of WEE in developing countries required - Motivated to contribute towards peace and development and to serve others. - Good interpersonal, networking and communication skills. - Willingness to contribute and work as part of a team. - Flexible and open to learning and new experiences. - Respect for diversity and adaptability to other cultures, environments and living conditions. - Previous experience as a volunteer and/or experience of another culture, (i.e., studies, volunteer work, internship) would be highly regarded.   Area(s) of expertise Agriculture, Development programmes, Social work Driving license: - Languages: English, Level: Fluent Required education level: Master degree or equivalent in Agriculture, Development Studies, Social Sciences, or related fields.   Competencies and values - Professionalism - Integrity - Teamwork and respect for diversity - Commitment to continuous learning Communication - Flexibility - Accountability - Communication - Empowering Others - Integrity - Planning and organizing - Self-Management   Other information Living conditions and remarks Afghanistan is a hardship duty station with a volatile security. Living and working conditions for UN volunteers in UNWOEMN are like the living conditions of all other internationally recruited staff members. UN volunteers are provided with safe accommodation in compounds in each region, with good infrastructure and amenities. Generally speaking, stringent security measures are in place throughout the country and UN volunteers as other UN staff, are limited in all Afghan duty stations when it comes to movement, walking is not allowed. The movement is done inside the "green box" (only) only in armored vehicles driven by national qualified UN drivers. UNV volunteers serving in Afghanistan must be prepared to endure the challenges associated with a crisis environment. Afghanistan is a non-family duty station and accommodation is limited to selected UN approved, MORSS+ compliant premises (MORSS = UN Minimum Operating Residential Security Standards). The UNDP Security section provides these guidelines during the initial security briefing upon arrival in the mission area. Volunteers will firstly arrive in Kabul, where they will stay a few days up to two weeks before transferring to the regional offices. In Kabul, accommodation is provided in UNOCA which may be in containers. These accommodations are furnished with necessities. In the provinces, UN personnel may be confined to guess houses; in most of the regions, both electricity and water are readily available, although water can sometimes run low because of severe droughts in the last couple of years. Most guesthouses have secured water (e.g., through a well in the compound) and generators in the event of power failure. Some degree of medical service is provided in all UN duty stations in Afghanistan. Contact with and outreach to the local community is usually limited. Many places are off limits, and the choice of recreational facilities are very poor. For all these reasons, bringing a stock of books, DVDs/VCDs, computer games, etc., is highly recommended. Living allowances are paid in US$ at the end of each month, but bank transfers by UNDP to accounts abroad are possible. Afghanistan is a unique country. It requires more stamina, commitment, and flexibility than elsewhere to make life comfortable and affordable. Therefore, flexibility and the ability and willingness to live and work in hazardous and harsh conditions involving physical hardship and little comfort are essential.   Inclusivity statement United Nations Volunteers is an equal opportunity programme that welcomes applications from qualified professionals. We are committed to achieving diversity in terms of gender, care protected characteristics. As part of their adherence to the values of UNV, all UN Volunteers commit themselves to combat any form of discrimination, and to promoting respect for human rights and individual dignity, without distinction of a person's race, sex, gender identity, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, age, language, social origin or other status.   Note on Covid-19 vaccination requirements Selected candidates for certain occupational groups may be subject to inoculation (vaccination) requirements, including against SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) in line with the applicable host entity policy           ______________________________________________________________________   This is how cinfo can support you in the application process for this specific position: - Before you apply for this position: Improve your application documents by registering for a Job Application Support. - When invited to the interview: Prepare for the interview by registering for a [Job Application Support](http://www.cinfo.ch/en/job-application-support).   - For Swiss nationals who are invited to an interview or assessment center: - Please let us know so that we can inform our HR partners from the respective organisation and the Swiss Government: recruitment@cinfo.ch - Benefit from free interview preparation by registering for a [Job Application Support](http://www.cinfo.ch/en/job-application-support).

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.     For every child, Care? The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. The UNICEF Innovation Fund has been specifically designed to finance early stage, open-source technology that can benefit children. The core motivation of the Innovation Fund is to identify 'clusters' or portfolios of initiatives around emerging technology - so that UNICEF can both shape markets and also learn about and guide these technologies to benefit children.     How can you make a difference?
