Job Title: Associate Development Coordination Officer, Data Management and Results Monitoring/Reporting


Job ID: 23037
Location: Abuja           
Agency: Resident Coordinator Office               
Languages Desired: English
Grade: NOB
Practice Area - Job Family: Management - DATA
Vacancy Type: FTA Local
Contract Duration: 1 Year with possibility for extension

Background
  • With the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at its core, and in response to the General Assembly resolution 71/243 on the quadrennial comprehensive policy review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system, the UN Secretary General’s report (December 2017) “Repositioning the United Nations development system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda: our promise for dignity, prosperity and peace on a healthy planet” puts forward a comprehensive proposal on further improvements to the resident coordinator system to ensure more coherent, accountable and effective support for the 2030 Agenda.
  • This was further reinforced by General Assembly resolution 72/729 of 31 May 2018, which gave the Secretary-General the mandate to implement the repositioning.

  • The core capacity will include expertise in coordination and strategic planning, economics, tailored policy support, results monitoring and evaluation, and strategic partnerships, plus a robust standing communications capacity within the United Nations country team, among others.
