UNDP recruiting SELECT Programme Consultant
Brussels, Belgium, 30 September 2019
In 2018, the JTF has developed a joint EU-UNDP "Sustaining Peace through Elections" initiative (SELECT) anchored in a new governance strategy called "Democracy Strengthening approach", aiming at bringing together key institutions and work on different themes such as inclusion, transparency, accountability, integrity and capacity. The initiative also has a more conflict-sensitive branch called Programming for Peace, aiming at assisting electoral stakeholders in the formulation and implementation of electoral assistance projects through a range of activities centred around conflict prevention. These two pillars, Democracy Strengthening and Programming for Peace, are supported by the SELECT Toolbox, a web platform with open access to practical tools and activities. The JTF will support the COs in the implementation and follow-up of some of the SELECT activities, such as electoral violence early warning systems. The JTF will also develop standalone websites for each of the implemented SELECT projects and will be in charge of their hosting, update and maintenance.
