UNDP Programme Management Analyst Jobs in South Africa

UNDP will contribute to “Component 2: Scaling up of integrated approaches”, through a ''greening the value chain'' approach, which will foster sustainable and resilient food value chains at large. UNDP’s efforts within the GEF IAP-FS Regional Hub Child Project will be led by UNDP AFSH Private Sector Unit. UNDP partners with AGRA for the implementation of the component.

Within its efforts to enhance regional institutional capacities, UNDP has endeavored and engaged the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to make food value chains more environmentally sustainable and resilient in Sub-Saharan Africa. This includes a study on the topic, in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in the context of the GEF’s Food Security Integrated Approach Pilot (IAP-FS) program in partnership with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).

The IAP-FS project is funded by the GEF from 2018 to 2022 (5 years) and seeks to tackle major drivers of environmental degradation by advancing a holistic and integrated approach to enhancing agricultural productivity in smallholder systems where food insecurity is directly tied to agriculture.

The project is extended to end by June 2023. Through the IAP-FS project, the GEF is seeking to promote the sustainable and resilient management of natural capital - land, soil, water, vegetation, and genetic resources using a value chain approach - as a priority in food security transformation of smallholder agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa countries. As part of the UNDP’s project implementation team a Programme Management Analyst is sought for.

The Programme Management Analyst will support the implementation of the project’s Component 2 and thereby work closely with UNDP RSCA’s IGSD and GEF Cluster as well as with AGRA until June 2023. The Analyst will be a member of the UNDP AFSH and form part of the GEF IAP-FS Regional Hub Child Project Programme Coordination Unit (PCU).
