Organizational context
UNDP’s Regional Service Centre for Africa is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. With additional offices in Dakar, Senegal and Nairobi, Kenya, it serves 45 Country Offices in sub-Saharan Africa, develops high quality knowledge and policy, and is the organization’s main interface with regional and continental bodies such as the African Union and the Regional Economic Communities. The Center also implements a continent-wide Regional Programme supporting Africa’s transformation agenda by: 1) enhancing inclusive and sustainable growth, 2) widening political participation and giving everyone a voice, and 3) developing responsive institutions which deliver desired services and promote inclusive processes of state-society dialogue.
UNDP has been present in the Republic of Congo since October 23, 1976, and through its network of partners in 177 countries, aims to support the development efforts of the Republic of Congo and promote sustainable development through institutional capacity building, advisory services, strong and strategic partnerships, and support to national execution. As part of the 2021-2023 cycle of the Gender Seal Initiative, UNDP Congo intends to have the capacity to monitor efforts to promote gender equality and the full integration of gender in all its activities. Furthermore, it strives to support the Regional Bureau for Africa gender initiative by working to implement gender equality through a two-pronged approach (i) mainstreaming gender in all core practices; and (ii) dedicated interventions that empower women and promote gender equality thus supporting the Administrator and senior management in addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment in their convening and representational functions.
The JPO staff will be part of the Congo Office Gender Team. The JPO will support the positioning of the Country Office gender work and contribute to the overall implementation of the UNDP and Country Office Gender Strategy.
