    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.

    Following the submission of the eligibility request on July 10, 2019, Cameroon was declared eligible for funding from the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) by the United Nations Secretary General, in a letter addressed to President Biya, on July 29, 2019. Currently, the PBF portfolio amounts to $21,548,755.08, for 12 projects, 7 of which are active.

    The Steering Committee – with its Technical Secretariat – formed on May 8, 2020, by an order of H.E. the Prime Minister of Cameroon, is co-chaired by the United Nations Resident Coordinator and the Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister, and is in charge of the strategic and political supervision of PBF projects.

    The PBF Secretariat – and its coordinator – embedded within the Office of the United Nations Resident Coordinator (RCO) in Cameroon, supports the mobilization and ensures the proper functioning of the Steering Committee and the liaison between the Members of the Steering Committee and the implementing partners to ensure the proper coordination, sequencing, and monitoring and evaluation of approved projects, as well as the mobilization of additional funds.

    As the UN governance mechanism of the PBF portfolio in Cameroon, the PBF Secretariat has two main functions: 1) , to co-coordinate the joint Technical Secretariat of the PBF Steering Committee; 2) to support and organize through the Technical Secretariat, the work of the PBF Steering Committee; 3) to coordinate and provide technical guidance for the work of UN PBF recipient agencies (RUNOs) and non-UN entities (NUNOs) in the program cycle (Design, Monitoring / Evaluation) and ensure collaboration between recipient agencies and the synergies of the PBF portfolio as well as the visibility of the programs, under the PBF Steering Committee guidance. The Secretariat therefore has a strategic role within the UN family and within the joint PBF Governance structure established in Cameroon, as it gives impetus to inclusive discussions around conflict prevention and consolidation in Cameroon. The PBF Secretariat will also fulfill the role of focal point for liaison with the Peacebuilding Commission in order to support Cameroon’s participation as appropriate.

    Under the general supervision of the Resident Coordinator, the direct supervision of the Coordinator of the PBF Secretariat and the indirect supervision of PBSO, the Communication and Logistics Specialist will work in close collaboration with RCO Communication, administrative and finance Units, and will ensure the implementation of the Communication Strategy which will be approved by the PBF Portfolio Steering Committee, as well as the communication and logistics of the PBF Secretariat.
