Governance Advisor (Assistant Resident Representative)

Zambia has been a self-starter Delivering as One country since 2011. The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Zambia, led by the United Nations Resident Coordinator & UNDP Resident Representative, developed the Zambia-United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework 2016-2021 which articulates the UN System’s collective support towards national development priorities. This process was done in close consultation with the Government, bilateral partners and civil society. Its implementation requires strengthening a transformative relationship with the Government and its partners in the operationalization of the 7th National Development Plan, which localises the SDGs alongside Zambia’s Vision 2030 of becoming a prosperous middle-income country by 2030.

Under the guidance of the Country Director, the Governance Advisor (Assistant Resident Representative) acts as a manager of and advisor to the UNDP Senior Management on all aspects of the Governance and Gender Zambia Country Office (CO) programme in line with the UNDP Country Programme Document 2016-2021 and lead technical advisor of the Governance Results Group under the Zambia-UN Partnership Framework.

The primary role of the Governance Advisor is to support UNDP’s and the UN Systems contribution as a thought leader, innovator and integrator towards creating a conducive governance environment for a diversified economy as outlined under Pillar 5 of the 7th National Development Plan. This includes growing, monitoring and managing the UNDP governance programme portfolio under the UNDP Country Programme Document 2016-2021 results and resource framework and lead technical advisor on governance under the Zambia-UN Partnership Framework in line with the UN Reforms, the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the coordination structures of the 7th National Development Plan. The Governance Advisor leads the UNDP Governance and Gender programme team in strategic planning and identifies new programme areas while ensuring consistency, innovation and South-South Cooperation under the Zambia-UN Partnership Framework and the 7th National Development Plan 2017 – 2021 priorities for creative responses to emerging challenges and opportunities for good governance.

The Governance Advisor heads and supervises the Governance & Gender programme team. He/she works in close collaboration with the UNDP Programme Management Support Unit, the Strategic Policy Unit, other CO Programme/Operations Units, and the senior governance programme staff in the UNCT Agencies, UNDP HQs and Regional Service Centre staff, and Government officials, technical advisors and experts, multi-lateral and bi-lateral donors and civil society to successfully implement the UNDP contribution to national governance objectives and international human rights commitments.

UNDP has recently approved its new Strategic Plan 2018-2021, which sets out the direction on the organization to support countries to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UNDP Strategic Plan calls for a cross-cutting and an integrated application of expertise to deliver on development results.
