As one of the original eight pilot countries for the UN Reform initiative Delivering as One, Tanzania is a global leader in advancing reforms of the UN system, with a view to support accelerated harmonization in implementation practices, coherence in programming, and alignment with national systems, intended to produce a reduction in transaction costs and enhanced development impact. Deepening reform will require new and even more innovative ways for the UN agencies to work together in formulating and implementing UNDAP II. Programme planning, resource mobilization, evaluation, and review activities will be done collaboratively. There will be increased harmonization of UN policies, procedures and tools, possibly leading towards the establishment of a One UN Operations Team.
The Programme Team works in three focus areas namely Inclusive Economic Growth, Environmental Sustainability and Inclusive Democratic Governance. The Inclusive growth focus area deals with poverty reduction, private sector development, social protection, addressing issues of unemployment and livelihoods strengthening. The Programme Analyst for Inclusive growth works under the overall guidance of the Programme Specialist for Inclusive growth and Private Sector Development. The Programme Analyst analyzes political, social and economic trends and takes active role in design, formulation, implementation, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of projects within his/her portfolio and provides policy advice services to counterparts. The Programme Analyst supports the Programme Specialists with the daily operations of projects, including project management in Atlas, reporting in IWP and ROAR and also support the bidding and contracting processes under NIM when UNDP is a responsible party. The Programme Analyst ensures effective delivery of the CO programme by supporting programme implementation throughout project cycle while remaining consistent with UNDP rules and regulations guided by the POPP. The functions are embedded with a virtual team across the thematic areas but also working closely with the Programme Finance and Procurement teams in order to fast-track processes and ensure that there are sufficient capacities to manage the workload at peak times.
