Office of the UN Resident Coordinator (RCO) is responsible for comprehensive support to the UN Resident Coordinator (RC) and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). UNCT in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is comprised of nine UN Programmes and Specialized Agencies (FAO, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UNEP, WHO, ILO, UNESCO, UN Women, UNV), the Breton Woods Institutions (World Bank, IMF), UNICTY and IOM. Several regionally-based UN Agencies are operational in BiH through the implementation of the 2015-2019 United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for BiH (UNIDO, IFAD, and IAEA).
The coordination of the UNCT is facilitated through the RCO, whose main function is to support the UNCT through the coordinated and analytical assistance, identification of joint UN initiatives and to ensure the broad UN expertise is available to BiH counterparts in their efforts to advance development of BiH. The RCO’s assistance is divided across four units: UN coordination, disaster risk reduction, human rights, peace and development and UN communications.
The world has set a very ambitious and necessary Agenda for 2030. All 193 Member States of the United Nations (UN) have committed themselves to solving the world’s biggest challenges formulated in 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which provide a framework for shared action to be implemented by all countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership. With the intention to support the authorities in BiH in their efforts to initatei and localize the process of the SDGs implementation in BiH, the UN in BiH has prepared the SDGs Roll-out Support and Private Sector Engagement project, to be financed by SIDA and to be implemented by the UN in BiH through coordination of the RCO.
The overall goal of the two-year project is that Bosnia and Herzegovina translates Agenda 2030 into action for the benefit of all its citizens. The Project Outcome is as follows: Public and private sector partners prepared for implementation of the SDGs in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This Outcome is foreseen to be achieved through two Outputs that are complimentary but distinct in terms of the stakeholder focus. While Output 1.1. is primarily focused on preparing institutions and key stakeholders for the SDG rollout, Output 1.2. is focused on the sensitization and engagement of the private sector in SDGs, recognizing the catalytic and transformational role private sector as a key stakeholder has in the achievement of the SDGs.
Under the direct guidance and supervision of the Development, Research and M&E Specialist and in close collaboration with the Head of the Office of the UN Resident Coordinator, the Project Assistant (PA) will provide project support services ensuring high quality, accuracy and consistency of work. PA will be responsible for technical and logistical assistance to the Specialist in terms of the SDGs Roll-Out Support and Private Sector Engagement project, in terms of implementation of specific parts of the project activities.
