Vetted Roster - Individual Consultants: Extractive Sector

UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) - ETHIOPIA | Published January 13, 2017  -  Deadline February 15, 2017

UNDP’s Africa Regional Hub is responsible for supporting the implementation of UNDP’s Strategic Plan at the regional and country level across Africa, working with a network of Country Offices and regional partners. The three key thrusts of the Strategic Plan are sustainable development pathways, inclusive and effective democratic governance, and resilience. The Sustainable Development Goals also neatly map onto the key areas of UNDP’s work.The SDGs not only build on the MDGs, they will apply universally and not just be meant for developing countries. While countries in Africa have made tremendous progress against the MDGs, gaps remain and several issues that were not part of the MDG framework are taken up by the SDGs. The SDGs are therefore much more comprehensive set of goals (17) and targets (169) with a higher level of ambition than the MDGs.One sector that has potential to support the achievement of the SDGs is the extractive sector. Development of extractive industries, around oil, gas and minerals, holds the promise of raising incomes and living standards. However, many resource-dependent countries are also unable to fully benefit from their natural wealth.Poverty can still persist; jobs may be hard to come by; the industry can be an ‘enclave’, with few backward and forward linkages with other industries or enterprises; and the environment can be degraded while livelihoods are destroyed. The wealth pouring into the country can also breed corruption and raise inequalities. All of these unwanted outcomes may create fertile grounds for violence and conflict.Therefore, it is not surprising that, on average, resource-dependent economies score lower on the human development index than less endowed countries. Out of the 3.5 billion people living in resource-dependent countries, approximately 887 million live below $1.25/day.But it does not have to be this way. Some countries have managed their extractive industries successfully. They have diversified their economies, ensured backward and forward linkages, tackled corruption and conflict and invested in human and physical capital.By focusing its development work on extractive industries, UNDP supports countries to reduce the risks and realize the benefits of resource extraction. To this effect, UNDP is looking for experts to contribute to its work.In order to ensure continued support to our initiatives, UNDP’s Regional Service Centre for Africa (RSCA) invites candidates to send their applications for inclusion in a Vetted Roster of external experts.
