Job Oppoerunity at UNDP in Uganda- Consultants - Crisis Prevention and Recovery (3 Positions

Job Title: National Consultants - Crisis Prevention and Recovery (3 Positions), Kampala
Closing Date: Monday, 07 March 2011

Background

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Uganda (GoU) are in the process of rolling out the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) 2010 -2014. The CPAP is a five year framework defining mutual cooperation between the GoU and UNDP. The CPAP is aligned to GoU's National Development Plan (NDP), as well as the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF 2010-2014). It is nationally executed through the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development (MFPED).

The country programme has two main components which are Accountable Democratic Governance (ADG) and Growth & Poverty Reduction (GPR). UNDP contributes through the two programme components to the Northern Uganda recovery priorities set forth in the Peace Recovery and Development Plan (PRDP), and is focused on specific Crisis Prevention and Recovery (CPR) outputs namely:

    Functional firearms registries and stockpile management and destruction systems in place.
    Policy and mechanisms for peace-building, reconciliation and reintegration in place.
    Two (2) targeted project documents are to be prepared to guide delivery.

Background to the proposed projects:

Northern Uganda has been faced with 20 years of armed insurgence that has led to the proliferation of arms, destruction of the region's economic base, and breakdown in social cohesion among communities. Insecurity in the Karamoja sub-region, partly rooted in the proliferation of small arms and problematic disarmament programmes, has hampered administration of central government services, which has resulted in chronic breakdown of law and order and under development. At the root of this insurgency, lie the issues of inequality, exclusion from state mechanisms and development opportunities. This has marginalized a large proportion of vulnerable groups, i.e., the poor in general and overall led to low growth and income for the region as compared with other regions in the country. 61% of the population in the North and 80% in the Karamoja region are living below the poverty line, compared to 30% at national level. These withstanding, high incidences of intertwined conflicts in northern Uganda have witnessed a tremendous increase in the number of agencies working on peace building and conflict issues in northern Uganda.

Against the above background one of the main objectives of the National Development Plan is strengthening good governance, defence and security. Northern Uganda will be one of the focus areas; and in this regard the Government's Peace, Recovery, and Development Plan (PRDP) is providing a strategic framework for interventions in Northern Uganda. On the other hand, the UNDAF that guides operations of the UN agencies in the country identifies: “Capacity of selected government institutions and civil society improved for good governance and the realization of human rights that lead to reducing geographic, socio economic and demographic disparities in attainment of Millennium Declaration and Goals by 2014” as one of the outcomes to achieve.

In light of the above, one of the outcomes that UNDP aims to contribute to is:

    “Selected institutions capacitated (formal and informal) to deliver community security and access to justice services"

Some of the outputs identified in CPAP that contribute to the outcome for which detailed project documents are to be developed are:

    Functional Firearms Registries and Stockpile Management and destruction Systems in Place.
    Policy and mechanisms for peace-building, reconciliation and reintegration in place

Each output will be delivered through one project document:

    Output 1.2.2 is Functional Firearms Registries and Stockpile Management and destruction Systems in place. The Ministry of Internal Affairs (Uganda National Focal Point Department) is the potential Implementing Partner.
    Output 1.2.3 is Policy and mechanisms for peace-building, reconciliation and reintegration in place. Office of the Prime Minister, Ministry of Internal Affairs is th epotential Implementing Partner.

Objectives of the assignment:

    Identify UNDP areas of comparative advantage in the areas of Small Arms Control and Peace Building, within the broader framework of the CPAP 2010-2014 and UNDAF 2010-2014.
    Identify programmatic strategic interventions that will contribute to:
    A functional registry system for Firearms, Stockpile Management and destruction; and
