Job Description


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 Cameroon coordinated, alongside the government, the implementation of the first phase of the Regional Stabilisation Facility, Cameroon window in the far north Region.The development and implementation of joint action plans for the localities of Amchidé (Municipality of Kolofata), Limani (Municipality of Mora) and Moskota (Municipality of Mozogo), Blangoua (Municipality of Blangoua), Waza (Municipality of Waza) since January 2020 has been facilitated in this context. As a multi-donor project establishing a common funding mechanism to achieve the scale and flexibility of responses needed for stabilization and to enable a transition to longer-term development in the Far North Region, the Project has set itself the following major objectives: (i) Immediately stabilize specific areas, freed from Boko Haram control, but where communities remain vulnerable to continued infiltration and attack; ii) Increase community activities along the corridor in coordination with security forces and local authorities to maintain the return process.

The armed conflict following Boko Haram’s acts of violent extremism in Cameroon’s Far North Region has slowed economic activity and destroyed basic infrastructure in a region that already suffered from high levels of poverty before the outbreak of conflict, further increasing the vulnerability of these populations. Some villages and towns in Cameroon’s Far North Region have become uninhabited due to Boko Haram attacks, further reducing the presence of the state and the provision of basic services. Added to this the recent community conflicts, that consequences on social cohesion are unprecedented.

The second phase of the Stabilisation Project, which aims to improve the social contract in the global sense of the term, gives an important part to social cohesion, which must be understood as transversal between the three main pillars of the project, namely: i) community security and justice systems,ii) essential social services and infrastructure and  iii) short-term livelihood opportunities.
