Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.

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.

Job Purpose and Organizational Context

UNDP’s 2022-2025 Strategic Plan emphasizes the critical links between environmental sustainability, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and broader efforts to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda and Paris Agreement.

As part of the Global Policy Network in the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support, UNDP’s Environment Team promotes and scales up integrated whole-of-governance approaches and nature-based solutions that reduce poverty and inequalities, strengthen livelihoods and inclusive growth, mitigate conflict, forced migration and displacement, and promote more resilient governance systems that advance linked peace and security agendas.

Within this portfolio, the Environment Team has signed a cooperation agreement for the project “Promoting the mobilization of Green Finance in the LAC region to accelerate the implementation of NDCs as a pathway for regional environmental sustainability and resilience” (the Project) in coordination with the Swedish Cooperation (SIDA) to mobilize resources to work on green finance for nature in Latin America. The three-year initiative seeks to leverage transformational change to enable the mobilization of climate and green finance in the region through common approaches focused on making public investments more efficient, and capable of unlocking additional finance and investments that serve to reinforce sustainable development initiatives including ecosystem regeneration strategies that favour inclusivity and climate resilience.

The Project is possible due to a financing agreement between Sweden, represented by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), and The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with the general objective of promoting and scale-up the mobilization of green finance to accelerate the implementation of NDCs in the LAC region. The Project while looking to develop regional strategies and knowledge management, will focus its implementation within the Central American and Andean regions.

The Project will frame its objectives around three main workstreams that will directly influence the structural changes to foster the mobilization of green finance at the national level within the LAC region:

  • Data generation and knowledge management.
  • Institutional and regulatory frameworks for climate change.
  • Nature finance mobilization.

To guarantee an efficient and high-impact implementation of the project the Environment Team is recruiting a Communication Analyst to support this project as well as communications efforts to position the work of the Environment Team in close coordination with UNDP’s Climate Promise global communication team and UNDP’s communications team in Latin America and Caribbean Regional Hub in Panama.

Duties and Responsibilities

As part of the Environment Team, the Communication Analyst will be responsible for developing and leading the Communications Strategy of the new project in the portfolio and will work as part of the Project Management Unit under the direct supervision of the Project Manager, as well as in a coordinated manner with the Environment Regional Team Lead, UNDP’s Climate Promise global and UNDP Regional Bureau for Latin America and Caribbean (RBLAC) communication team.

The Communication Analyst will be responsible for carrying out the following duties:
