Please make sure you will mention in the subject line of the email “Intern - Resident Coordinators Office”.
CORPORATE BACKGROUND:The United Nations Resident Coordinator system aims to bring together the different UN agencies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operational activities at the country level. The UN Resident Coordinators lead UN country teams in 129 countries operating in 164 countries and territories and are the designated representatives of the Secretary-General for development operations.
In light of the ongoing UN Reform, the Reinvigorated Resident Coordinator System will be the main mechanism to coordinate the United Nation system’s activities for development in the country. It is guided by the UN General Assembly resolution 72/279 on the Repositioning of the UN Development System, which stipulates the establishment of an empowered and impartial RC system effective 1 January 2019.
INTERNSHIP OFFICE BACKGROUND:The United Nations system in the Islamic Republic of Iran consists of 18 resident UN funds, programmes and specialized agencies. The UN system supports the government in its development efforts and in doing so it contributes to ensuring the national ownership of UN programmes and projects and the further development of Iran’s individual and institutional capacities.
To coordinate the work of the UN system at the country level, the RC and UNCT are supported by the RC Office (RCO) that serves as a catalyst and vehicle for taking forward the planned results and priorities set by the UNCT in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The RCO currently supports 10 core coordination functions performed by RCs and UNCT as appropriate: 1) Strategic analysis and planning; 2) Oversight of the UN country programming cycle; 3) Representation of and support of UN Secretariat and UN agencies/NRAs; 4) Support to national coordination systems and processes; 5) Development and management of shared operational support services; 6) Crisis management and preparedness response; 7) External communication and advocacy; 8) Human rights and development; 9) Joint resource mobilization and fund management; and, 10) General UNC oversight and management.
