You are invited to join a team of dedicated development professionals whose primary role is to support the Maldivesto achieve the 2030 Agenda. As part of the UNDP team your focus will be to work with multiple stakeholders to find country specific solutions to ensure no one is left behind - and we reach those furthest behind first. As the global balance of power shifts, UNDP is taking on new roles and funding. The recent geopolitical shift is reflected in the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which universally applies to all countries in the world. The UN Development Programme (UNDP) was established in 1965 to channel official development assistance (ODA) to developing countries. It has grown into an operation with a presence in more than 170 countries. In Asia and the Pacific alone, UNDP’s experts have become trusted partners to 36 governments. We are in the process of adapting to the new development landscape, where UNDP’s core funding continues to be under pressure. The challenge for UNDP now is to adapt to the changing, ever- “flatter” world of development cooperation.
UNDP Maldives has been working closely with the government of Maldives in achieving its national goals as key partner in the development arena. As such UNDP Maldives has recently begun to explore ways through which the immense potential and expertise of the private sector in addressing the development challenges of our communities can be mobilized from concerted and continued engagement at the grassroots levels where the private sector and companies partner with us to create sustainable solutions
UNDP is looking for individuals who have the analytical, planning and implementation capacities that can address links, choices and connections across many issues and sectors. We seek individuals who can apply global best practice to national contexts. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, motivated and committed to making a positive contribution to Development in the Maldives.
