Organizational Context

YPO Programme

The Young Professional Officer Programme (YPO) is a unique opportunity for young talent with a passion for international development, who have the potential to become future leaders in the development sector. It is designed for highly qualified and motivated young professionals to build their capacities in areas relevant to UNDP practice areas such as Democratic Governance, Environment, Energy and Climate Change, Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Development Policy and Operations.

In order to be competitive for this highly selective Programme, the incumbent must have demonstrated a commitment to development, supported by academic success, and potential for leadership. UNDP values diversity in work place, and encourages qualified men and women, with diverse professional, academic, and cultural backgrounds, to apply to the YPO Programme.

Project Background

Over the course of the last few years, all the Agencies of FATA have been affected by militancy and large scale displacements. While it has been possible for some population groups to return home (most notably to Bajaur, Mohmand, Khyber and Kurram Agencies), 2014 saw a massive exodus of people from North Waziristan Agency after government launched military operations Zarb-e-Azb in June 2014 and later from Bara Tehsil of Khyber Agency after the launch of Khyber-1 military operation in October 2014. This latest wave of displacement has brought the total FATA Temporarily Dislocated Persons (TDP) caseload to an estimated 300,000 families (around 1.6 million people), around 70% of which are women and children. In order to meet the emergency food and other needs of a registered caseload, humanitarian agencies are currently supporting 1.56 million people displaced from FATA, both in camps and in host areas in KPK.

Since the onset of the North Waziristan displacement in June 2014, UNDP has been working hand in hand with the Government at National, Provincial and District levels in order to strengthen the local governance capacity to manage this crisis and to provide solutions for both the IDP population and the affected communities in the hosting Districts. At the same time UNDP will also continue to support the FATA Secretariat in the implementation of the FATA Sustainable Return and Rehabilitation Strategy which seeks to address the most immediate rehabilitation and recovery needs in FATA in order to facilitate sustainable returns of more than 300,000 TDP families (including over 100,000 families from North Waziristan) in the coming two years. The Strategy centers around five key pillars of recovery: rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure, re-establishment of law and order, strengthened governance, improved livelihoods and social cohesion and peacebuilding. The Government is keen to ensure solid coordination between the rehabilitation and recovery process and the medium to long term socio-economic development and the much-needed constitutional, legal, judicial and institutional reforms.

Under the supervision of the Programme Specialist, Crisis Prevention and Recovery Unit (CPRU), the Young Professional Officer will assist Programme Specialist and Programme Officers in connection with project implementation to achieve set targets.
