Background:
 
The United Nations Development Programme/Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (UNDP/PAPP) was established through a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on 20 December 1978, calling upon UNDP “to improve the economic and social conditions of the Palestinian people”. In partnership with Palestinian institutions, civil society, communities and  donors, UNDP’s goal is to empower the Palestinian People to establish a viable State that is able to realize the right to development for its people and support their socio-economic resilience. Since its establishment, UNDP/PAPP has delivered over USD 1.5 billion in development assistance to the Palestinian People.
 
UNDP/PAPP places empowerment, resilience, and sustainability at the center of its operation and focuses on three priority areas: the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and Area C of the West Bank, where the needs are the greatest. UNDP/PAPP is active in four thematic areas: democratic governance and the rule of law; economic empowerment  and private sector development; environment and management of natural resources; and public and social infrastructure
 
UNDP/PAPP is currently implementing the second Phase multi-year Rule of Law and Access to Justice programme in Gaza Strip and West Bank
known as Sawasya II. It is a UNDP, UN Women and UNICEF Joint Programme that aims at comprehensively promoting and advancing the rule of law, justice, security and human rights in the State of Palestine.
 
During the period 2014-2017 the programme has endeavoured to enhance the capacities of, and public confidence in, rule of law institutions, and strengthen access to justice, security and protection services, especially for women and girls. Interventions are designed with a view to sustainability and linking activities to ‘system-level’ policy development.  
 
As part of the second phase of the programme and backed by a consortium of development partners, with numerous national and international actors, Sawasya II supports government institutions and civil society working in justice, security and protection to strengthen access to efficient, equitable and accountable services for Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Partnership with UN Women and UNICEF in this joint programme underpins the gender and child rights components throughout the justice chain and within relevant public services.
 
UNDP is seeking a candidate to fill the position of Communications Coordinator under the direct supervision of Joint Programme Manager and in coordination with the Partnerships and Communications Specialist. As this position is related to the Sawasya II Joint Programme (Promoting the Rule of Law in Palestine) with an expected initial period of one year and expected overall duration of two years, the National Personnel Service Agreement (N-PSA) extension will be conditioned to satisfactory performance evaluation as well as availability of funding under the project.
