1 UN VOLUNTEER DESCRIPTION OF ASSIGNMENT Preamble: The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers. In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UN Volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies and local communities. In all assignments, UN Volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UN Volunteers even more rewarding and productive. 1. UNV Assignment Title: Disaster Risk Reduction Associate 2. Type of Assignment: National UN Volunteer 3. Project Title: UNV Support to enhancing capacity of United Nations Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience in South and East Asia and Pacific 4. Duration: 12 months 5. Location, Country: Yangon, Myanmar To apply, please click here: https://jobs.partneragencies.net/erecruitjobs.html?jobopeningid= Expected starting date: ASAP 7. Brief Project Description: The UNV Strategic Framework (SF) articulates the scope and dimensions of UNV s strategic direction, results and associated resource requirements over a four-year period. Based on the global context outlined in the SF and UNV s expanded mandate, track record and expertise, UNV will intentionally direct its efforts and programme resources into five priority areas where volunteerism has a transformational and cumulative impact on the lives of people: (i) basic social services; (ii) community resilience for environment and disaster risk reduction; (iii) peace-building and peace-keeping; (iv) youth; and (v) national capacity development through volunteer schemes. The present regional project aims to support the United Nations Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience in South-East Asia and Pacific through volunteerism in a number of countries that were affected by the Indian Ocean tsunami in The scope of the regional project is to allow the organization to deliver its results in community resilience for environment and disaster risk reduction, in accordance with the individual requirements of programme countries and partners, by supporting up to six UN Resident 1

2 Coordinators, their offices and UNCTs, with one international and, wherever feasible, one national UN Volunteer specialists in DRR, as well as establishing a results and resources framework to guide regional and country-specific initiatives in support of national/regional efforts and UN engagement in disaster risk reduction. A special mention needs to be made to the country-specific initiative in Myanmar, Piloting a DRR Youth Volunteer Network, which aims at reducing vulnerability and strengthening community-based disaster risk management capacity in support of the Disaster Risk Youth Volunteer (DRYV) Program, launched in 2013 by the Relief and Resettlement Department (RRD). In order to support RRD in making this programme fully operational across the nation, UNV, UNDP and UNICEF are partnering in the implementation of a pilot project. In close collaboration with RRD, the objective of the UNV/UNICEF/UNDP Disaster Risk Youth Volunteer Project is to strengthen the DRYV Network in three pilot states, some of which are among the poorest and most vulnerable to natural hazards in Myanmar: Rakhine, Mon and Ayeyarwaddy. 8. Host Agency/Host Institute: UNDP / UNV 9. Organizational Context: The United Nations Volunteers programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers. Since 1993, the UNDP Programme in Myanmar has been targeted towards interventions having grassroots level impact in a sustainable manner. The primary programme of assistance has been the Human Development Initiative (HDI), which supports 8,000 villages in over 60 townships nationwide, reaching an estimated 6 per cent of the population. This wide presence was necessary to provide crucial livelihood support in an environment where other development partners had a limited presence on the ground. However, this approach has hampered impact, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, as was noted by various assessments, including the annual Independent Assessment Missions (IAM). Following a UNDP Executive Board decision in January 2013 to approve a normal country programme for Myanmar for the first time after 20 years, Myanmar and UNDP signed in April 2013 a three-year Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) that outlines the development agency s engagement in the country for 2013 to 2015 to be pursued through three complementary pillars: Pillar I: Effective local governance for sustainable inclusive community development. Pillar II: Climate change, environment, energy and disaster risk reduction. Pillar III: Democratic governance and development effectiveness. The Climate Change, Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction team, also known as Pillar II, carries out programmes to reduce Myanmar s vulnerability to natural disasters and climate change, improve environmental and natural resource management. 10.
