Background

Despite the predominance of oil in the Chadian economy for many years, oil proceeds have not led to significant human development progress. Chad’s Human Development Index is estimated at 0.392 (which year?) characterized by high levels of poverty (can we give a %?) and inequality mainly in rural areas, high youth unemployment and under-employment which expose them to violent extremism and radicalization by Bokoharam insurgents, and low women’s participation in the formal economy due to lack of skills, networks, markets, and access to finance and technology.  Local governance is weak, as limited power and resources have been devolved to the decentralized territorial levels, which in turn have little capacity to manage them. Although local development plans exist in some districts and regions of Chad, many still need to be aligned to the 5-year national development plan 2016-2020 where priorities have been identified.

The new UNDP Chad Country Programme 2017-2021, approved by the Executive Board in January 2017, build on lessons and experience from the previous Country Programme. One of focus areas of the new programme is to improve livelihoods and achieve structural transformation of productive capacities that are sustainable and employment-intensive. This will be done through the provision of successful decentralization and inclusive finance models while structural changes will be monitored through the achievement of the SDGs at local level. To do so, the UNDP Country office has shifted to a programme approach where inclusive finance and local development tools will be provided to national and sub-national levels for maximum developmental impact.

Under the overall supervision of the Country Director and  direct supervision by the Senior Programme Advisor, the Chief Technical Specialist (CTS) will perform the following duties: (i) provide technical assistance to the Local Development and Inclusive Finance  Project (PADLFIT) and its daily implementation, including administrative and programme operations; (ii) provide support and advice to the UNDP Country Office, and to the Government and CSOs on inclusive finance and local development tools; (iii) develops key partnerships with donors and other investors; (iv) leads resource mobilisation efforts in this area; and prepares/ contributes to strategic briefs and key documents. 60% of his/her work will be dedicated to inclusive finance and 40% to local development.

At country level, the CTS oversees the Local Development and Inclusive Finance Project Team and provides technical support to inclusive finance and local development actors in Chad. He/she briefs UNDP’s senior management with updated information on opportunities to expand programmes and develop relationships with key partners. He/she receives support and guidance from the UNDP’s Country Director on portfolio management, including cash withdrawal, financial management and performance assessment, organisational matters, business development, resource mobilisation strategies and relevant tools. The CTS acts as UNDP’s technical advisor on inclusive finance and local development. He/she works in partnership with other UN system’s agencies and contributes to policy, management, and sharing of knowledge.

The CTS works in close collaboration with UNDP’s Country Office and ensures that inclusive finance and local development priorities are well captured in annual work plans in accordance with PADLFIT’s objectives. He/she develops strong partnerships with key donors and investors through promoting UNDP’s comparative advantages, especially in the area of inclusive finance and local development, in order to foster resource mobilisation opportunities.  He/she contributes to the positioning of UNDP in these areas.
