Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Over a number of years, UNDP Kyrgyzstan has established a long-term partnership with the Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic. UNDP has provided support to the efforts of Parliament in launching and implementing its development strategies, reinforcing its structures, processes as well as human resources in order to improve the effectiveness of its oversight, legislative as well as representative functions. As a result of 2010 constitutional referendum, Kyrgyzstan has turned into an only parliamentary democracy in the region, assigning crucial role to the Parliament in formulating national strategic directions and overseeing their implementation. To assist Kyrgyzstan in further enhancement of its parliamentary democracy, UNDP Kyrgyzstan was chosen to implement a ten-year long “Strong and Inclusive Parliamentary Democracy” project. The project is designed and funded by the Government of Switzerland and will (1) enable the Parliament to improve oversight of the executive and provide an opportunity for citizens to be included in the process of decision- and policy-making, and (2) empower civil society actors for more effective monitoring and influencing the performance of parliamentary and state accountability institutions, allowing citizens to hold the Parliament and government accountable and benefit from a more accessible, effective and responsive government.
To support its administrative as well as programmatic operations, the “Strong and Inclusive Parliamentary Democracy” project intends to engage a Project Assistant to work under the overall guidance and direct supervision of Policy Advisor/ Project Coordinator, ensuring high quality, accuracy and consistency of work.
The Project Assistant works in close collaboration with the operations and project staff in the office and UNDP CO as required to exchange information and support programme/project delivery.
