Project Administration/ Finance Officer Job Vacancy at UNDP in Uganda


Job Title: PROJECT ADMINISTRATION/ FINANCE OFFICER
Location :     Kampala, UGANDA
Application Deadline :    16-Nov-12
Additional Category    Democratic Governance
Type of Contract :    Individual Contract
Post Level :    National Consultant
Languages Required :
    English 
Starting Date :
(date when the selected candidate is expected to start)    01-Dec-2012
Duration of Initial Contract :    3 months
Expected Duration of Assignment :    3 months

Background

Over the past few decades Uganda has made significant strides in the socio-economic and political arena.  Uganda transitioned to multiparty politics in 2005 and continues to consolidate the spaces of multi-partism and the opening of political space. The preceding ‘no party’ system of governance there were gaps in the critical socio-political spectrum that if not addressed had the potential to escalate into political crisis. Some analysts have argued that the underlying political factors also contributed to the structural aspects that led to an increasingly slowing economic growth path. Most importantly, within the context of  global slowdown of economies, most often the lack of appropriate national channels for dialogue and consensus building have created an  air of suspicion, uncertainty and a lack of confidence in the management of the political and economic landscape thus hurting small businesses, leading to the unfortunate loss of life and property. These lacuna were acutely felt in the 2012 ‘walk-to-work’ protests and the subsequent regional level protests around the country. These events served to highlight the cracks on the road to democratization and to threaten further consolidation of multiparty politics in the country and peace and stability.

Within this context, UNDP together with key national counterparts have jointly conceived a project to strengthen national capacities for peace and conflict management. Bringing together key state and non-state institutions and creating a multilayered response to lasting peace and stability in the form an infrastructure that can respond to dynamic social, economic and political realities of the country as the key focus of this intervention. The proposed project interventions are a combination of institutional capacity development and political level engagement for putting in place a mechanism for lasting peace and stability. A core premise of the project is that peace is not just about mitigating and resolving conflicts but also about having structures and means for collective solutions, consensus building and dialogic mechanisms. Opportunities of this nature will help in creating the political space for entertaining alternate views and expressions and therefore preempting possible socio-economic disruptions that are the result of discontent, street protests and political destabilization.
