Description:
 

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.

A number of Aid Analysts are required at central and local Government levels to provide quality and timely analysis to policy makers and decision makers so that the national reconstruction effort can be effectively led by Government.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Examine patterns of financial and technical assistance in connection with earthquake rehabilitation and recovery by type, sector and location, and prepare respective analytical reports from country-level and in particular regional/district/tehsil perspective;

Prepare in-depth analyses regarding donor commitment performance, as well as unmet needs/gaps by sector and location, and identify implementation constraints;

Based on findings of the analytical work, provide practical recommendation concerning further alignment of international financial and technical assistance with actual needs and priorities;

Advise Government in tracking and analyzing aid flows;

Capture and analyze good practices and lessons learnt in aid tracking and analysis;

Support maintenance and further development of the Development Assistance Database (DAD Pakistan);

Perform other analytical and administrative tasks or any other duties reflecting the overall purpose of supporting governments of -affected countries in aid tracking and coordination.
