Job Description

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP: we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions. Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.

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 United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-Habitat, is the agency for human settlements mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable cities, with the aim of providing adequate housing for all. It is the lead agency within the United Nations for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda. UN-Habitat supports Member States and development partners to transform cities into safer, more resilient and healthier places with better opportunities working towards achieving inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable cities and communities, with a focus on addressing urban challenges and improving the quality of life for all people.
UN-Habitat advocates for policies and practices that promote sustainable urbanization, including the integration of social, economic, and environmental dimensions. It also helps build the capacity of governments, local authorities, and communities to plan, manage, and govern urban areas effectively, including promoting participatory approaches and inclusive decision-making processes.

In Ethiopia, UN-Habitat works closely with the Ethiopian government and other stakeholders to support sustainable urban development in strategic and spatial development of regions and cities, including through resilience and climate change adaptation. In the context of displacement, UN-Habitat plays a crucial role in addressing the challenges faced by displaced populations and supporting their sustainable reintegration into communities. It supports planning processes that consider the needs of displaced populations and promote inclusive urban development while advocating for the protection of land and property rights by supporting legal frameworks and policies that safeguard the rights of displaced individuals and communities. As well as providing technical assistance in resolving land and property disputes, it seeks to provide up to date, holistic documentation, and analysis of the impact of crisis in cities, synthesizing information and insight from existing sources and priority sectors, supplemented by direct field research.

The incumbent under this call is expected to join a team of professionals for a multi-agency joint project to pursue a nexus-based multi-dimensional and integrated approach to enable internally displaced communities in Somali and Oromia regions of Ethiopia to move towards recovery and resilience by employing durable solutions actions that enhance communities’ coping mechanisms against future shocks to anthropogenic disasters and natural hazards by rolling out a multi-pillar intervention that aims to take into consideration the diverse aspects of solutions-based programming among UN Habitat, FAO and IOM. The general objective of the project is to employ durable solutions that enhance IDPs’ and host communities’ capacities to move towards recovery and resilience with a particular focus on the Fafan and Shebelle zones of the Somali Region, and the East and West Hararghe zones of the Oromia Region.

Along this, UN Habitat’s responsibility focuses on strengthening and building capacity of institutions through area level spatial planning to ensure sustainable re-integration of displacement affected communities for improved access to HLP through legal and policy tools and planning instruments to respond to longer-term impacts of displacement affected communities (DACs).
