DESCRIPTION OF ASSIGNMENT

Preamble:

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.

In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UN Volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies and local communities.

In all assignments, UN Volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UN Volunteers even more rewarding and productive.

good and the social climate is calm. Senegal is an open country that enjoys social stability resulting from the smooth functioning of state institutions. Senegal is also provided with a good level of infrastructure (eg roads) but the distribution of water is electricity can be volatile in Dakar and other cities and towns of the country, requiring many civil servants to use generators. Senegal is also a popular tourist destination. The reception and spontaneous hospitality of Senegalese are among the characteristic features of this West African country.

The country is at the level of Security 2, which corresponds to “Low”, with the exception of the Casamance natural region (administrative regions of Kolda, Sédhiou and Ziguinchor) where acts of

banditry are often reported but also the presence of Elements of the Movement of Democratic Forces of Casamance (MFDC) and unexploded ordnance (UXO). All United Nations personnel must

Vaccinations against Meningococcal Meningitis and Hepatitis A and B are also recommended. The basic drugs are available in pharmacies but it is recommended to bring specific prescription drugs.

The currency used in Senegal is called Franc CFA (XOF). On 29 December 2016 the average exchange rate is 1 USD = 627.408 XOF. Many hotels, restaurants and large businesses in Senegal accept the main international credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.). It is also possible to withdraw cash from automatic telling machines found in all the major cities.

The accommodation facilities are in general good and the choice is wide. It is possible to rent unfurnished and furnished accommodations from 450 to 2000 USD. UN Volunteers can also co-rent

and share private accommodations, which must comply with Minimum Operating Residential Security Standards (MORSS). Transportation in town can be easily arranged through local taxis.

To enter Senegal, a valid passport is required. ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) nationals are not required an entry visa.

14. Conditions of Service for international UN Volunteers:

The duration of your assignment is 12 months.

A volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities, transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post- Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,587. The VLA base rate is a global rate across the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to the cost of living. This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on

the ICSC website (http://icsc.un.org).

For example, if the PAM is 35.6% in January 2017 in Senegal, then the VLA for that month and for that country will be (US$ 1,587 x 35.6 /100) + 1,587= US$ 2,152. Moreover, a Family Allowance (FA) is added in accordance with the number of recognized dependents: US$ 250 if the UN Volunteer has 1 recognized dependent, and US$ 450 if the UN Volunteer has 2 or more recognized dependents.

Accordingly, the VLA per month will be US$ 2,152 for a volunteer without dependent; US$ 2,402 for a volunteer with one recognized dependent and US$ 2,602 for a volunteer with two or more recognized dependents.

In non-family duty stations that belong to hardship categories D or E, as classified by the ICSC, international UN Volunteers receive a Well-Being Differential (WBD) on a monthly basis.

UNV provides life, health, permanent disability insurances as well as assignment travel, annual leave, full integration in the UN security framework (including residential security reimbursements).

UN Volunteers are paid Daily Subsistence Allowance at the UN rate for official travels, flight tickets for periodic home visit and for the final repatriation travel (if applicable). Resettlement allowance is paid for satisfactory service at the end of the assignment.
