Background:

The enormous loss of life and devastation caused by the South Asia Earthquake disaster of 8 October 2005 resulted in excess of USD 6 billion in pledges being received by the Government of Pakistan. The volume of resources, and the number of organizations now offering support, requires a high degree of coordination to be put in place if assistance is to ensure a timely and effective response during the recovery and reconstruction process.

The Government of Pakistan has requested UNDP support to augment its aid management capacity, including additional staffing to provide expert technical support and to train Government counterparts, as well as the introduction of an information management system to track resources and results.

National Aid Coordination Officers are required to work at central Government and local levels to provide additional technical support and to contribute to capacity building efforts to supplement and augment Government aid coordination functions.

Supporting donor desk officers (and playing the role of focal point if desk officers are being recruited); understanding the structure of the donor’s programme, donor priorities, donor projects and helping to solve queries which the donor may raise;

Working with the relevant Government bodies involved in earthquake recovery and reconstruction at central and local level;
