Vacancy Code: VA/2010/NAO/UNDG/18-8/IO

Post Title: Innovation Officer

Post Level: Consultant (I-ICA 1)

Position Status: Non-rotational

Org Unit: NAO/DG/EOSG/Global Pulse

Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda (with possibility of travel)

Duration: Immediate start, project ends 14 January 2011

Closing Date: 31 August 2010

BACKGROUND

The UN Global Pulse project is seeking an Innovation Officer to assist in the initial planning, documentation, fundraising and skeleton-defining of an innovation "Pulse Lab" in Uganda.

In 2009, in the midst of the global economic crisis, the heads of twenty of the world's largest economies called upon the United Nations “to establish an effective mechanism to monitor the impact of the crisis on the poorest and most vulnerable." The relentless waves of compound global shocks -- food, fuel, and financial -- revealed a wide information gap between the onset of a global crisis and the availability of actionable information for decision-makers to protect the world's poorest and most vulnerable populations. Traditional monitoring systems that proved effective in tracking medium to longer-term development trends were of little use, as they were not designed to generate the type of real-time information needed to understand how populations were being impacted by the crisis and respond with agility.

The Global Pulse initiative, located within the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, will work closely with Member States and other development partners to improve evidence-based decision-making and close the information gap between the onset of a global crisis and the availability of actionable information to protect the vulnerable. To do so, it will harness innovative approaches and emerging technologies from around the world. Global Pulse will draw upon existing sources of sub-national information to help national leaders understand which populations are most exposed to specific risks, their level of resilience, and the coping strategies they are likely to adopt in response to an external shock. It will then allow them to monitor the welfare of vulnerable populations through both statistical data collection programmes and non-traditional techniques such as crowd-sourcing of information from mobile phones, social networks, and online media, which make it possible to detect anomalous behaviors that may indicate that a population is beginning to feel the impacts of a crisis or has exhausted its capacity to cope.

Objective

Global Pulse is creating a free and open source technology platform for collaborative analysis and decision support that will provide local, national and global leaders with:

Historical information on the context and impacts of past crises on specific population groups and tools for retrospective analysis
Real-time information on the early impacts of global crises on vulnerable populations and tools to select, refine and evaluate policy responses
Predictive analysis of emerging vulnerabilities of specific population groups and tools to improve their resilience to future shocks

Pulse Labs are national facilities established to support the work of government by developing analytical and technological capacity for evidence-based decision making and sustainable innovation in crisis resilience. Central to the Pulse Labs mission is the development of sustainable “dual-use” systems that simultaneously provide value directly to vulnerable communities while also generating streams of actionable real-time information to help leaders understand quickly how populations are being affected, respond rapidly with high-value, targeted policy interventions, and generate evidence for advocacy at the global level.

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

In preparation for global deployment, Global Pulse will stand up an initial network of three Pulse Lab “prototypes” over a three-year period to develop and refine the model.

The basic modality of a Pulse Lab is to support the lab team, through both curriculum-based training and ad hoc, on-the-job peer mentoring, as they work to support government in improving crisis resilience. The primary work of the lab team consists of identifying critical information gaps and needs, selecting vulnerable communities to participate as Global Pulse sentinel sites, and working with public and private-sector partners to create technology solutions that strengthen national capacity for evidence-based decision making and rapid response.

This lab set-up exercise should also be an exercise in open source collaboration. There are many lab efforts already ongoing in Uganda. The Pulse Lab should not replace or supplant existing efforts but rather build on them and serve as the connective tissue that can bind them together.

The scope of work for this consultation is to map out the existing landscape of labs / innovation in Uganda and to work closely with UNICEF Uganda's Innovation team to generate the plans necessary for starting a full Pulse Lab in January 2011. Specific tasks include:

Orientation with the Pulse Team to understand the project modalities and needs.
