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.

Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) are central to the success of the evolving peace process in South Sudan. As evidence from previous attempts at DDR in South Sudan will attest, it is a complex process, with interconnected political, military, security, humanitarian, and socio-economic dimensions. Article 2.2.3.5 of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) states that, all forces shall be screened and classified according to known military criteria followed for recruitment for the army, police, national security, and other services. Ineligible individuals shall be referred to DDR. The DDR program will run through the transitional period. The objective is to address the post-conflict security challenges that arise from ex-combatants being left without livelihoods or support networks, other than their former comrades, during the critical transition period from conflict to peace and development. DDR seeks to support the ex-combatants’ economic and social reintegration, so that they can become stakeholders in peace.

Findings of the survey conducted by the Bureau for Community Security and Arms Control in South Sudan in 2017 concluded that the proliferation of illegal firearms and light weapon among the civilian population was one of the factors contributing to inter-communal violence, including poverty, conflict over natural resources, external interference, and the absence of effective law enforcement. In addition, the proliferation of small arms and light weapons (SALW) within the country has also led to numerous ineffective, violent disarmament campaigns that have resulted in a loss of life.

South Sudan has developed a national legal framework for arms control and civilian weapon ownership. The Firearms Act was passed in 2016 and is complemented by the Firearms Regulations published in 2017. There is also a small arms and light weapons policy. A three-year roadmap for implementing the Firearms Act that prioritized 21 actions were also developed but not implemented.

In 2020, the Ministry of Interior launched a Voluntary Civilian Disarmament Strategy (VCDS) to be implemented by the Bureau of Community Security and Small Arms Control (BCSSAC). A process of promulgation by BCSSAC of the strategy across South Sudan’s ten states and three administrative areas began in 2021 that included the participation of a broad cross-section of national, state, local and traditional officials, and authorities; women; youth, including cattle camp youth; religious leaders; as well as civil society and media representatives.

The strategy is now being piloted in Lakes state where the Government has started collecting arms. The BCSSAC will begin to sensitize the disarmed youth to disarm the mind. The opportunity of alternative livelihoods will be provided including reintegration process. Furthermore, the BCSSAC together with the Ministry of Interior will be supported in the management of collected arms.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is supporting the DDR Programme of the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) within the framework of the R-ARCSS, which was signed in September 2018. DDR is also a key component for implementing of a broader Security Sector Reform (SSR) process. It continues to be one of the critical priorities of the Republic of South Sudan National Development Strategy (2018-2021).

It is against this backdrop; UNDP seeks to recruit a Reintegration Specialist who will work in the Peace and Community Cohesion program (PaCC). The purpose of the Reintegration Specialist is to provide strategic advice to the Leadership of the DDR Commission and the Bureau of Community Security and Small Arm Control (BCSSAC) on reintegration of former combatants, Special Needs Groups (Children and Women associated with Armed Forces and Groups (CAAFG, WAAFG), ex-combatants with disabilities) together with other conflict-affected groups such as youth at risks, disarmed civilian, SGBV survivors and other related aspects under their institutional mandates.
