The UNDP Nepal is seeking applications from qualified and result oriented Nepalese citizens for following assignment:
    
1. Title: Provincial Project Coordinator
Background
After the promulgation of the new constitution in Nepal, strengthening social cohesion is a prerequisite in smoothly managing the transition to federal system, broader implementation of new constitution and enhancing democratic participation of marginalized communities. Conflict, unrest and social tensions of the past many years have created fissures that have the risk of being overplayed during the time of transition to federalism and implementation of the new constitution. Bringing back the inter and intra-community cohesion, strengthening it further, rebuilding trust between the citizenry and state are key steps required for the next few years. Programs to support the communities to engage with each other culturally and socially, and for the state representatives such as the police and district development officials to collaborate through community-based activities are going to strengthen the social cohesion and community harmony and security.  


After the elections of local bodies, provincial parliaments and the federal parliament, the priority of the UN is to support the smooth implementation of the new system and strengthen its viability and credibility. During such a complex and difficult period, it is important for UNDP to support the key stakeholders at the community to central levels as well as government officials at every level, to strengthen the social contract that “glues” a functional state together and mitigate the risk associated with federalization.

Given above, this new effort comes together in a new project Social Cohesion and Democratic Participation (SCDP).  The project’s main partner is the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction. SCDP’s work is divided into two distinct pillars; one focused on Risk Identification and the other on Risk Mitigation. The Risk Identification pillar consists of an Early Warning initiative with Near-term and Medium/Long-term components.  The Risk Mitigation pillar encompasses three distinct initiatives that, taken together, form a comprehensive approach to addressing localized tensions and keep the social fabric intact.  Both pillars would be shaped by a cross-cutting Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) and Conflict Sensitivity approaches that ensure that processes are socially inclusive and equipped to navigate the socio-political complexities of local environments.


Under the guidance and direct supervision of the National Project Manager, the Provincial Project Coordinator will be responsible for the implementation of SCDP in the programme areas of the respective field offices.
