Job Purpose and Organizational Context
The crisis that affected the North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon has damaged public infrastructures, broken social cohesion and slowed down economic development. With the aim to resolve the crisis, the President of the Republic called for a Major National Dialogue, that brought together more than 600 participants from all 10 regions of the country. Three quarters of participants to the Dialogue came from the NWSW regions. The Head of State instructed the Prime Minister, Head of Government to preside over the Major National Dialogue. Among other recommendations, the Major National Dialogue recommended the reconstruction of North-West and South-West regions.
The Government of Cameroon and UNDP collaborated in the formulation of the Presidential Plan for Reconstruction and Development (PPRD) of the North-West and South-West regions. The PPRD is a component of the National Development Plan 2020-2030 (post Growth and Employment Strategy Paper 2010-2020), aiming at reducing the effects of the socio-political and security crisis for the affected communities in the NW/SW regions. The PPRD feeds into the government efforts to resolve the current crisis. This initiative is complementary to other key reforms such as the establishment of a Special Status for the NW/SW regions.
Confronted with complex development challenges, the Government intends to emphasize on governance, economic recovery and crisis prevention in order to consolidate the peace process. Through the PPRD, the government aims at reinforcing the resilience and development of the populations in the affected regions of North -West and South-West. The Government envisages to restore social cohesion, provide livelihood opportunities and increase access to basic services for communities in the NW/SW regions. Finally, through the PPRD, the Government ambitions to bring about short and medium terms transformational changes.
The United Nations Development Program is the implementing partner and fund manager of the PPRD. The program is implemented through a dedicated accelerated execution modality. UNDP is building on its extensive experience to implement similar Recovery and Reconstruction large programmes. The PPRD is consolidating peace in the NW/SW regions, by building capacity at national and local levels to address the underlying structural causes of vulnerability, marginalization and insecurity. To this end, the PPRD is articulated around 3 key pillars: Social ,Cohesion, Rehabilitation of Infrastructures for basic services and local Economic Revitalization.
