About UNDP:

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

UNDP is the leading United Nations organization fighting to end the injustice of poverty, inequality, and climate change. Working with our broad network of experts and partners in 170 countries, we help nations to build integrated, lasting solutions for people and planet. UNDP has been working in Afghanistan for more than 50 years on climate change and resilience, gender, governance, health, livelihoods, and rule of law. Under the broader framework of the Sustainable    Development Goals (SDGs) and in close coordination with other UN agencies, UNDP is supporting Afghan people’s aspiration for peace, prosperity, and sustainability through a flagship crisis response programme, ABADEI (Area Based Approach to Development Emergency Initiatives), as part of the ongoing UN-led response to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and the breakdown of Afghanistan’s economy following the August 2021 shift in power. To support UN joint programming in the provision of basic human needs, a Special Trust Fund for Afghanistan (hereinafter referred as the Fund or STFA) was established on 20 October 2021.

The Fund serves as an inter-agency mechanism to enable donors to channel their resources and coordinate their support to the UN joint programmes initially developed using the ABADEI Strategy which was tied to the UN Transitional Engagement Framework (TEF). Future programming will be guided by the United Nations Strategic Framework for Afghanistan (UNSFA), a successor document to the TEF, which will serve as the strategic planning framework for the United Nations in Afghanistan. The Steering Committee is the decision making structure for the Fund while the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) acts as the Administrative Agent. The Trust Fund Management Unit (TFMU) is the Fund Secretariat for STFA, responsible for the operational functioning of the Fund and provides technical and management support to the Steering Committee. The STFA is being strategically positioned to become part of the One UN Funding Framework from 2023 and will be directly supervised by the Resident Coordinator while UNDP will provide administrative support to the Secretariat, TFMU.

Under the direct supervision of Data Management Specialist, the Data Management Associate will provide technical support in (1) managing data and knowledge generated from the joint programmes under the Fund and survey initiatives; (2) facilitating information and knowledge sharing through management of the Fund’s online platforms; and (3) communicating the latest updates related to the Fund and its results.
