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 The Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Development (SIED) Portfolio in UNDP aims strengthening natural resources management, resilience to climate change and disaster risks, while expanding livelihood and employment opportunities for women, youth and other vulnerable groups. Uganda’s second National Development Plan (2015/16 -2019/20) also emphasises the extractives sector (Minerals, Oil and Gas) as one of the key drivers with the greatest multiplier effect to propel the country to middle income status. The Plan emphasizes sustainable wealth creation, inclusive growth and employment. UNDP in Uganda through its Country Programme Document (CPD) has developed specific interventions under the SIED Portfolio towards supporting this outcome. Specifically, the Inclusive Green Grown Programme for Poverty Reduction (IGGPR) Programme supports government’s efforts in natural resource management as well as livelihoods and job creation. This is through building and expanding capacities in natural resource management, particularly among women and the younger generations, in a way that promotes entrepreneurship, livelihood strengthening and job creation. The UNV will thus be working in the Inclusive Green Growth Unit to contribute efforts to ensure that Uganda’s nascent energy and minerals sector is harnessed for pro-people benefit and along the tenets of value chain optimisation, Bio Diversity conservation and investment promotion for socio-economic development. Specifically, the UNV will be tasked to undertake an extensive analysis of the capacity gaps within the extractives sector in Uganda; review past and ongoing initiatives in the sector, and share lessons learnt; develop strategies and actions that will inform CO programming in the extractives sector, including the preparation of a project document.
