Strengthening the UN system’s monitoring and evaluation capacity through the deployment of young evaluators
We are looking for young evaluators. Under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN reform agenda, monitoring and evaluation capacities are more important than ever to achieve UN system effectiveness and to strengthen the capabilities of countries in the achievement of their own localized SDGs and national development policies.
UN Youth Volunteers, who receive a monthly living allowance and a benefits package, can be impactful resources to support these monitoring and evaluation efforts. UN Volunteers can contribute to national SDG monitoring, evaluation and reporting; support monitoring and evaluation of UN Development Assistance Frameworks and Common Country Assessments; assist with innovative forms of data gathering; provide analysis and support communications efforts; contribute to the development of training programmes on monitoring and evaluation, including building capacities of national and local stakeholders; and engage local stakeholders and marginalized groups, particularly in deep-field and remote locations.
Deploying national UN Youth Volunteers supports national capacity-building while deploying international UN Youth Volunteers can be an opportunity to promote south-south cooperation and disseminate field-tested and well-adapted practices across borders.
Assignments could take place with a variety of UN organizations, including UNFPA, UNDP, UN Women, UNICEF, FAO, WFP and DPKO for a time period of between 6 months to up to 2 years. Selected UN Youth Volunteers will be based in country, regional or headquarters offices around the world. Additional information is available on the description of assignment available here.
