Job Description

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

Office/Unit/Project Description

Malawi endures a structural development challenge in the absence of a comprehensive and accurate system of national identification, undermining citizens’ right to identity. The consequences are multi-sectoral and deprive citizens’ access and entitlement to services. Equally, the absence of a centralized and up-to-date national register has led to a fragile capacity for evidence-based planning, beneficiary and service targeting, and accountable administrative systems. Efforts in various arenas have led to fragmented initiatives, creating costly or unsustainable silos of information, while also imposing institutional and technical obstacles to interlink information. The Malawi National Registration Act (No. 13 of 2010) entered into force in August 2015 requiring all Malawians 16 years of age and older to be registered in a National Registry and to be issued with an identity card. Additionally, through the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (CRVS) Malawian children under 16 years of age, are also required to have compulsory birth registration and issued a birth certificate.

Other components of the national registration system include death registration and issuance of death certificate, marriage and divorce registration and certificates. The National Registration Bureau (NRB) Act mandates the National Registration Bureau (NRB) to fulfil these tasks. To support government efforts in improving the national system of registration, the initial results of the Project were to: design, establish and manage the necessary systems, infrastructure and equipment for the National Registration and Identity system, producing biometrically secure Smartcards; supervise the mass national ID registration for all eligible Malawians (an estimated 10 million) within the country between 2017 - 2021; transition the system to a continuous registration model, develop the capacity and systems of NRB to operate then maintain the system; provide an interface to other public and private sector systems that allows for appropriate data sharing within a legal framework that complies with international principles and standards for the right to privacy and data protection; and to ensure the effective management of the Project.

Following successful implementation of the first phase of National ID registration with over 10 million people registered and smartcards distributed, the project has been revised to address the gap of child registration and issuance of birth certificates to those that are below 16 years of age. It is envisioned that by 2023, 8.4 million children will be registered and issued with unique national identification (ID) numbers and Birth Certificates. The project is now focusing on developing new elements like the strengthening of Digital Public Infrastructure and promoting Digital Public Goods, extending the use of the national ID to social services and other institutions both in the public and private sector. As these services are being extended the issues of data privacy and security and digital human rights are becoming more and more relevant. This new dimension of the project requires the role of a Digital Governance Analyst to address new challenges.
