Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Protection and conservation of the environment is becoming increasingly important because of the effects of climate change such as rising sea levels and ocean acidification. Leveraging environment and climate funding help countries step up their activities in climate change adaptation and mitigation and integrating climate change and disaster risk management into national and sectoral planning.
The UNDP Office in Fiji Resilience and Sustainable Development (RSD) team works with Pacific Island countries to strengthen their legal and institutional frameworks for sustainable development and address gaps in environmental legislation. We help in climate change adaptation and mitigation, conservation of biodiversity, minimizing land degradation, ensuring efficient and equitable water resources management and water supply and sanitation delivery, and increasing efforts towards enabling access to electricity, environmentally sustainable transportation, and cleaner and affordable fuels.
Under the guidance and supervision of the Deputy RSD Team Leader, the Monitoring and Reporting Officer will be responsible for the monitoring; ensuring high quality, results-based management and timely analysis and reporting.
The RSD team is currently implementing 36 projects across 15 Pacific Island countries with a total budget of approximately USD$147 million. The M&R Officer will be the dedicated capacity to manage and synthesize project level findings to inform Sub Regional Project Document (SRPD) output level and the SRPD/UNPS (United Nations Pacific Strategy) Outcome level results and well as link up the UNDP Strategic Plan and other reporting mechanisms including but not limited to the SAMOA Pathway and the Sendai Framework. The M&R Officer is therefore an integral part of the RSD Team to support Monitoring & Reproting at the portfolio level including in relation to gender.
The M&R Officer works in close collaboration with the RSD Programme and Project teams, Integrated Results and Management Unit (IRMU) in the Pacific Office in Fiji and Government officials and other partners to ensure that thematic and project’s findings and recommendations are implemented.
