Background:

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality, and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence. 

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (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 and the Prime Minster’s Office have initiated the Transformative Resilience program. This programme will contribute to building the resilience of the Palestinian people, particularly affected by geographical drivers of vulnerability, and hence aims to reduce developmental gaps and improve the socio-economic conditions towards national sustainable development. In line with the principles of transformative resilience this programme aims: To improve delivery and access to services and economic opportunities for vulnerable groups in Area C, East Jerusalem and Gaza, particularly women and youth; To enhance political, cultural, economic and social cohesion and improve inclusion of most vulnerable groups; To support institutional and behavioral changes towards improving the enabling environment to reduce socioeconomic inequalities, including gender inequality.
