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.

The joint UNDP-DPPA programme on building national capacities for conflict prevention has made a ground-breaking contribution in bridging the gap between political engagement and development assistance in pursuit of preventing conflict and sustaining peace. In its new phase (2019-2023), the Joint UNDP-DPPA Programme will further strengthen the analytical capacities of national stakeholders and the UN system in support of Member States’ efforts to advance policy and programmatic coherence on conflict prevention and support strategies for sustaining peace.

The deployment of Peace and Development Advisors has been the primary instrument of the Joint Programme to provide capacity for Resident Coordinators and UN Country Teams to support national partners in dialogue and national or local mediation processes, the establishment and operationalization of national infrastructures, and mechanisms for peace; and other initiatives aimed at sustaining peace.

In an effort to ensure that PDAs are better equipped and empowered to deliver on their mandates, the Joint Programme has established in a number of contexts small ‘Peace and Development teams’ where a national Peace and Development Officer provides reinforced capacity to the PDA’s engagement in support of the RCOs (Resident Coordinators Office) and UNCTs (UN Country Teams) in the area of conflict prevention and sustaining peace. There current cadre includes 120 Peace and Development Advisors deployed globally, including 40 national positions.

In some contexts, Peace and Development Officers are deployed in contexts where an international PDA is not present.

Country context – Angola

Following a peaceful presidential transition in 2017, Angola embarked on a path of political reforms aimed at curbing corruption and promoting governance. The first local elections as part of the democratic governance reforms, slated for 2020, were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. General elections took place on 24 August 2022 in a peaceful environment. The ruling party won with 51.17% of the votes, re-electing incumbent President João Lourenço for a second five-year term. The main opposition party obtained 43.95% of the votes. Abstention rates reached 55%, significantly among the youth, which comprise 60% of the population. About 32% of the new members of the National Assembly are women, 39% women occupy ministerial positions and 28% provincial governments.

Equal participation of women, effective youth engagement and governance are key pillars in advancing the Secretary-General’s prevention agenda. Youth in particular have been affected by five years of economic recession. In May 2022, Angola launched the national chapter of the African Women’s Leader Network. Since 2017, the Government of Angola has worked on a broad anticorruption campaign, as a cornerstone of its policy objectives.

On the regional front, Angola has emerged as a key player in Central Africa, the Great Lakes region and beyond. Angola holds the pro tempore presidency of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) and of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP); it also holds the presidency of the Commission of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and is expected to take the chairmanship of the Organization of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) in December 2022. Angola’s strategic position in Africa has also made it a key player in the African Union and in the Southern African Development Community. Angola’s critical role in peacemaking and promoting political and security stability in the Central Africa and Great Lakes regions, can be exemplified by its mediation initiative with the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, and conflict resolution efforts in Central Africa Republic; the sending of a small contingent of troops to Cabo Delgado in Mozambique; and hosting the Biennale of Luanda for a Culture of Peace in December 2021.

In this context, the PDA will support the PDA, the UN Country Team and the Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO) in advancing SDG 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions and Angola’s peace leadership in the region. The PDA will support the strengthening of national capacities through facilitating the formulation of effective and gender-sensitive programmes working with relevant partners, including civil society, especially women and youth, academia and other relevant stakeholders in support of the Women Peace and Security and the Youth Peace and Security agendas. The PDA will be located in the Resident Coordinators’ office, with a direct reporting line to the PDA.
