|The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Africa supports countries to eradicate poverty, and reduce inequalities and exclusion through implementation of UNDP’s Strategic Plan, and in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Trusted and results-oriented partnerships are at the centre of UNDP’s work, coordinated by the Bureau of External Relations and Advocacy (BERA). Compelling, well-targeted communications and advocacy can boost results in reporting, transparency and resource mobilisation efforts. Communications can, likewise, play a crucial role in advancing the global development agenda in Africa, including as a conduit of information and knowledge on impact, good practice, innovation and emerging issues. Our audiences include Member States, funding and development partners, the UN system, the media, the general public etc.
As an essential part of the UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa, and working closely with the Communications Group in BERA and the UNDP Representation Offices in Copenhagen, Brussels, Geneva, Tokyo and Washington DC, the Communications team provides a strategic, substantive and coherent approach to communications within UNDP Africa – both in external outreach as well as providing mentorship and support to communications officers in the Country Offices in order to advocate and communicate for results and development good practice.
The team at the UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa is looking for a competent intern who will support the communications team based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
