Organizational Setting
FAO Uganda’s programme of work is guided by the Country Programming Framework (CPF) 2021-25. The CPF is aligned with FAO’s corporate Strategic Objectives (Better Nutrition, Better Environment, Better Production and Better Life) and the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-25 in support of the Government of Uganda’s (GoU) third National Development Plan 2021 25 (NDPIII). The CPF centers around three main pillars of support: People and the Enabling Environment, People and the Natural Environment and People and Prosperity. The CPF builds on work done in Uganda by FAO to engage family farmers and small-scale producers in crop, livestock, fisheries and forestry production systems that are resilient, innovative and sustainable while protecting the most vulnerable populations and helping them achieve food, nutrition and income security through resilient agricultural livelihoods. Integrated programming – across sectors, in partnership with key stakeholders and in pursuit of the SDGs–underpins this CPF.

Reporting Lines
The Programme and Partnerships Specialist will work under the overall supervision of the FAO Representative (FAOR), the direct supervision of the Deputy FAO Representative (DFAOR) and in close collaboration with programme teams.

Technical Focus
The Programme and Partnerships Specialist will identify strategic partnerships for the FAO Representation in Uganda, foster internal dialogues, engage in external consultations and coordinate (or lead, as the case may be) the development of integrated and impactful programmes in line with FAO Uganda’s CPF 2021-25. The incumbent will ensure programming is (a) done in partnership with key external stakeholders drawn from across sectors in an integrated and cross-cutting manner, (b) aligned to FAO’s commitment to the SDGs, notably SDG 1 (End poverty), SDG 2 (End hunger) and SDG 10 (Reduce inequalities); (c) reflects the principles of leaving no one behind, gender equality and women’s empowerment, resilience, sustainability, accountability, a human rights based approach and conflict sensitivity; and (d) integrates climate change targets as a key strategy in support of the GoU’s Nationally Determined Contributions.

Tasks and responsibilities

The Programme and Partnerships Specialist will:
• Engage in programme development and robust proposal writing in close collaboration with programme teams and technical specialists drawn from across FAO Uganda and the FAO Technical Officers Network across RTEA, SFE, RAF and HQ to access expertise related (but not limited) to sustainable agriculture, poverty reduction and resilience available for integrated country programming;

• Assist Senior Management in their engagement with resource partners through the development of communication materials (e.g. writing concept notes, project proposals, brochures etc.), organization and execution of donor consultations and field visits in close collaboration with Team Leads, representation of FAO Uganda in meetings and conferences, and delivery of presentations;
• In close collaboration with the Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Team, organize periodic donor consultations to keep current and potential donors abreast of FAO’s work and progress against its CPF, the UNSDCF and the SDGs, and highlight areas of concern and/or opportunities to scale up impactful programming;
• Establish and maintain regular contact with the UN system in Uganda, actively explore opportunities for joint programming and partnership in line with the Cooperation Framework and FAO’s CPF and ensure FAO’s substantive participation in the updates to the Common Country Analysis, the Cooperation Framework, and Joint Work Planning; and
