5 Steps to get a job in the United Nations

Work LocationRemote/hybrid in Tunis Expected duration6 months Duties and ResponsibilitiesOrg. Setting and Reporting The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all. For close to forty years, UN-Habitat has been working in human settlements throughout the world, focusing on building a brighter future for villages, towns, and cities of all sizes. The position is in the Capacity Development and Training Unit, Programme Development Branch of the Global Solutions Division of UN-Habitat. The Global Solutions Division (GSD) is responsible for providing programmatic direction for UN-Habitat and is responsible and accountable for the programmatic delivery of the Strategic Plan. The Division leads the tools and methodology production and the integration of the various substantive competencies towards effective delivery of UN-Habitat's mandate and Strategic Plan. It provides substantive training to staff members and supports capacity development of Member States and partners. The Programme Development Branch (PDB) is responsible for the overall coordination of programme development. It brings together normative and operational expertise supporting high-quality integrated programmes that maximize results across the outcomes and the Domains of Change in the Strategic Plan. It builds on concrete demands of national and local governments, strengthening the capacity of government and urban stakeholders at all levels to address the social, economic, environmental and crisis dimensions of sustainable urbanization. The Branch also focuses on supporting global programme development to strengthen normative capacity and knowledge generation to increase impact and influence, through strategic partnerships. The Capacity Development and Training Unit (CDTU) is responsible for supporting and monitoring the implementation of UN-Habitatโ€™s Capacity Building strategy. Individuals and institutions responsible for making cities sustainable and safe places to live and work in dignity need to have the skills, competencies and tools to steer cities towards a path of sustainable and inclusive urbanization. Capacity building addresses these needs, helping city leaders and institutions to accelerate toward the global goals of sustainable urban development. CDTU delivers a wide range of strategies, trainings, and technical support for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 11 on Sustainable Cities and Communities. This includes finding innovative ways to transform knowledge into capacity-building products, including practical and problem-solving tools that respond to the needs of governments, cities, partners, technical cadres, urban practitioners, and policy makers alike, as well as carrying out capacity needs assessments. The Unit coordinates engagement with academic and research institutions, including the global partnership between UN-Habitat and universities worldwide, the Habitat UNI. The partnership promotes universities to become closer partners of cities, closing the gap between academia and practice, and encouraging collaborative learning with emphasis on South-South, North-South knowledge exchange. CDTU additionally manages a number of partnerships with training institutions and centres of excellence around the globe. UN-Habitat's training partners range from government agencies to private sectors with the overarching aim to especially equip local governments to better respond to the sustainable urban challenges of their contexts. These partnerships take different forms but all serve to increase UN-Habitatโ€™s cooperation with training providers and learning institutes to improve the agencyโ€™s capacity for knowledge transfer. CDTU also manages UN-Habitat Learn, UN-Habitatโ€™s online learning platform.
