İlan Detayları


In 2020, the first ever UN System-wide Strategy on South-South and Triangular cooperation, coordinated by the UNOSSC, was approved by the Executive Committee of the UN Secretary-General. The ultimate objective of this Strategy is to provide a system-wide policy orientation to UN entities to galvanize a coordinated and coherent approach to policy, programmatic and partnership support on SSTC and increase impact across UN activities at all levels: national, regional and global. To operationalize the system-wide strategy, its accompanying Action Plan and monitoring framework were also developed with the objective to facilitate the monitoring of implementation of the Strategy by the UN system. In February 2022, a new corporate Strategic Framework for 2022-2025 to enhance South-South and Triangular Cooperation was also finalized. Within the above context, the UNOSSC Division for Arabs States, Europe and the CIS, based in Istanbul, Turkey, systematically provides policy, technical and capacity development support to and collaborate with Member States, relevant regional institutions, UN entities, international financial institutions, and other stakeholders in the Arab States, Europe and the CIS regions. To further strengthen these efforts, the Division is seeking to recruit a Policy and Coordination analyst to provide a wide range of support across the five broader areas of work of the Division as articulated in the workplan: Policy Coordination and Coherence; Programmatic Support; Institutionalization; Knowledge Management and Capacity Development; and Partnerships. The Division is of the view that this assignment would provide an immense opportunity to broaden the successful candidate’s horizon on a wide range of UN and related matters in the two regions, thus enhancing the opportunity for a career growth in the UN system or in international and regional development cooperation matters.
