The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide.
Duration of the project is 12 months Expected Starting Date: Immediate Following the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015, Ethiopia has proactively mainstreamed the SDGs in the country’s Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) which spans from 2015/16 to 2019/20. A joint Government-UN Task Force, operationalised in 2016, coordinates the overall implementation of the SDGs in Ethiopia. The Government and the UN System have lately agreed to establish a national SDG steering committee, to be chaired by the NPC Commissioner and the Resident Coordinator, and a multistakeholder SDG partnership platform. The aim is to strengthen Ethiopia’s institutional arrangements to: a) enhance national ownership, inclusivity and multidimensional nature of the SDGs, b) implementation of the SDGs in all sectors of the economy at federal, regional and local levels. Within this context, the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO) facilitates coordinated UN support to implement activities of the Joint SDGs Task Force. As such, the RCO supports the 29 UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes to mobilise partnerships with all relevant stakeholders and resources in support of the SDGs. The UNV Partnership and Resource Mobilisation Officer will be based in the RCO, and will contribute to the overall work of the SDGs Task Force. Specifically, the position focuses on effective partnerships and resource mobilisation in support of the implementation of the SDGs.
