Large mixed migration movements continue to top the global political agenda, as reflected in the 2016 UN New York Declaration, and remain at the forefront of concerns, discussions and collaboration across the multilateral system and beyond.
These movements create considerable challenges for countries of first asylum, transit and destination, as well as countries of origin, including through impact on socio-economic environments, such as labour markets of host countries, particularly where these may have already been under pressure and there is high unemployment.
The Partnership will be grounded on results-based and country-led approaches (“bottom up”) in two identified regions: MENA and the Horn of Africa with Uganda being one of the Target Countries.
The programme aims to accelerate efforts to find sustainable solutions for countries confronted with large influxes of refugees.
It will also aim to develop and implement evidence-based solutions, tailored to each context – as well as to test, and learn from, innovative operational solutions, including improving the availability, collection and use of data and evidence.
Within the policy and procedural requirements established by the ILO and the programme, the Finance and Administrative Assistant will support the financial management of the Partnership programme in Uganda, preparing purchase orders, undertaking all financial transactions, monitoring expenditures and ensuring that the procurement and contract management of the project are conducted in compliance with the ILO’s relevant rules and regulations.
