UN Volunteer Social Cohesion and Peacebuilding Analyst in Cambodia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia Charity

Duration of the project is 12 months
Expected Starting Date: Immediate

The 1991 Paris Peace Agreement marked the end of decades of violence and civil war in Cambodia. UN supervised elections in 1993 heralded the introduction of multi-party democracy. After a period of powersharing, the Cambodian People’s Party has progressively consolidated its power following the 1998 elections and the adoption of the “win-win policy”. In the past decades, Cambodia has achieved impressive results in terms of economic growth recently achieving the status of Lower-Middle Income Country status. In sustaining rapid growth, Cambodia faces the challenges of a narrowly based economy and persisting disparities. In addition, competing interests have sometimes resulted in land disputes and environmental degradation.

The UN Volunteer will work in the Resident Coordinator Office and report to the Peace and Development Advisor (PDA). The UN priorities in Cambodia as per 2019-2023 UNDAF are: 1) expanding socio-economic opportunities; 2) promoting sustainable living; 3) managing urbanisation; and 4) promoting accountability
and participation. The 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the main drivers for inclusive and sustainable development.

The UN Volunteer will work closely with the PDA, focusing on supporting and strengthening linkages and collaboration with civil society partners, universities and think tanks on issues related to social cohesion, peacebuilding and SDG 16.
