Organizational SettingFAO in collaboration with the Government of Finland is aiming at supporting the government of Myanmar in the development and implementation of a two-phase project for a new national scale Forest Inventory System over the years 2020 - 2025. Phase 1 of the project covers activities of Readiness and Testing, and Phase 2 the full Implementation. A particular and innovative feature of this project is to develop a “globally relevant approach to National Forest Inventory (NFI) and National Forest Monitoring and Information Systems (NFMIS) explicitly within the framework of a Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) and conflict sensitivity”, and support the Government of Myanmar in its implementation in the national territory”. Thus, the project fills an important gap in (global) approaches to National Forest Inventory and Myanmar´s existing National Forest Monitoring System, with no national forest inventory having ever been fully conducted in the country. In addition, at present, no guidelines nor best practices are available in terms of how to implement inventories and other monitoring activities in areas with security and conflict issues or territories with mixed governance systems.Myanmar is the country with the third highest deforestation rate in the world, after Brazil and Indonesia, and has significant potential for Climate Change mitigation through REDD as well as related multiple benefits. A functional NFI system is necessary not only for decision making in the national context but also an essential requirement for the fulfilment of conditions, which enable the country to participate in REDD including results-based payments. The latter is potentially a source of substantial development finance for the country after 2020 and communities where REDD actions are eventually implemented will directly or indirectly benefit from them.The project will establish the capacity in Myanmar to develop updated reports on the state of the forests at national scale and the scale of states and regions as well as for several other sub-national user-defined reporting units. The results of the NFI are expected to contribute to evidence based strategy and policy planning in the forest sector and to reduce controversies among stakeholders and sectoral policy actors derived from different, sometimes opposing, views in forest policy discussions through updated data on the state and quality of forests.Through the UN-REDD Programme a general design, sampling approach and initial elements of a data analysis and management system have already been established during 2017 - 2019. Testing of NFI field methodologies has been conducted in several land areas and forest types in central and North-western Myanmar as well as in Mangroves during 2019. The final NFI field methodology, data collection approaches and a draft estimation design have been developed too, in collaboration with the Myanmar Forest Department, FAO and the Finnish Natural Resources Institute, Luke, and is available as of end of 2019.The project will be divided in two phases, namely\: (1) Phase I of Readiness and testing, and (2) Phase II of full implementation. Phase I will cover the development of a package of safeguard instruments aimed at guaranteeing that the project is implemented in the framework of a HRBA, and that conflict sensitivity and do-no-harm strategies are demonstrated throughout the project. These instruments will be established and institutionalized into country level actions through an open access based data sharing policy, development of a stakeholder engagement and communication plan that includes how to communicate grievances and approaches for their resolution, with linkage to the Myanmar REDD Safeguard Information System. During Phase I data collection and some initial reporting for areas not considered as conflict prone will also be developed. Phase II will involve the completion of data collection in the remaining areas. When data collection is complete for all areas, a full data analysis and national scale reports as well as results for other reporting units can be developed. Phase II will also develop full reports on the state of the forests and tree resources in Myanmar. During Phase II, the NFMIS will be completed with agreed data sharing protocols, web-based data and information retrieval tools for interactive and customized reporting, corresponding support services and the medium to long term institutional and operational arrangements supported for a permanent NFI and NFMIS in Myanmar including the corresponding capacity building for relevant Myanmar stakeholders.For countries in conflict globally, there is a clear need to develop instruments to guarantee that a Human Rights Based Approach is followed in all elements of National Forest Monitoring (NFM). The global instruments developed in this project will have immediate application in Myanmar as a first country implementation, and can be applied across FAO’s NFM and NFI country support (active in over 50 countries) in conflict situations. The global activities such as the South-South collaboration and the development of global guidelines for conflict sensitivity and human rights based approaches in forest monitoring will be co-financed by FAO, to enable the scaling up of best practices to the global level for impact beyond Myanmar.Reporting LinesThe NC-Communication works under the overall supervision of the FAO Representative in Myanmar, the general supervision of the Assistant FAO Representative (Programme), and the direct supervision of the National Project Coordinator (NPC) of the NFI-NFMIS-HRBA project in coordination with the Chief Technical Advisor (CTA), the International HRBA Advisor and the National Project Director (NPD) of the project.Technical FocusThe NC Communication will be part of the PMU and work closely with NPC, CTA and other PMU staff in all matters related to communication, outreach to different audiences and knowledge management of the project.Tasks and responsibilitiesDevelop a knowledge management/communication strategy and a work plan for its implementation for different audiences based on the stakeholder analysis of the project;Coordinate the preparation and delivery of communication tools such as publications, leaflets, videos, field events and other products;Coordinate the development and regular update of a webpage, Facebook page or other social media tools to communicate efficiently and effectively with all stakeholders;Prepare biannual and annual project updates;Prepare radio/TV broadcasts and/or other communication outputs/activities;Coordinate with other organisations and initiatives the dissemination of information related to project activities, especially the UNREDD Programme, the FD and relevant NGOs;Lead the quality control on the production of communication material, including translations into Myanmar language with support from NPC and other PMU colleagues;Support capacity building activities for different stakeholders by ensuring that relevant materials are available for use in trainings, meetings, and other events;Support the preparation of meeting minutes, translations and interpretations for foreign staff and consultants, if needed;CANDIDATES WILL BE ASSESSED AGAINST THE FOLLOWINGMinimum RequirementsUniversity level degree in Communication Sciences, Journalism, or Social Sciences with coursework on communication and knowledge management, or similar fields.At least three years of working experience in the area of communication, knowledge management, journalisms or related fields;Myanmar Nationality;FAO Core CompetenciesStrong inter-personalTeamworkCommunicationBuilding Effective RelationshipsKnowledge Sharing and Continuous ImprovementFunctional SkillAbility to share knowledge and experienceActive towards continuous personal learningStrong analytical skills to master new subjectsAbility to manage priorities and meet deadlinesAbility to work towards results based management and reportingCapacity for leadership and managementCommitment to FAO´s mission and valuesExperience of working with print or online media, website management and web publishing;Experience of working with the government, UN agencies or NGOs will be an advantage;Good oral and written command of English and Burmese.

Central to this process is the shift of decision-making power and budgets from the union level to the subnational level. State/Region governments and State/Region parliaments have been established, with their own budgets, their own decision-making power and their own accountability mechanisms, including checks and balances.UNDP's Township Democratic Local Governance Project (TDLG) addresses the institutional challenges in Myanmar's local governance structures, emphasizing planning at the township level as one entry point in trying to make local governments more inclusive and responsive to people's needs. The project is designed along four work streams to strengthen the capacities of township administrations to meet local needs for public services; to facilitate information sharing and meaningful participation by the public in planning processes; to facilitate township administrations engaging with Ethnic Armed Organizations (EAOs) on service delivery coordination (and involve them in township planning processes); to foster participation of civil society in local governance/ township planning; and to utilize lessons learned by the project to advocate for policy change.The Township Democratic Local Governance project (TDLG project) contributes to UNDP Country Programme 2018-2022, Output1.: 'Effective public institutions enabled to develop and implement evidence-based policies and systems that respond to the needs of the people.'In 2019, UNDP has commissioned a forward-looking mid-term review of TDLG to assess the progress towards the achievement of the project objectives and outcomes as specified in the project document and identify early signs of project success and areas for improvement to guide the future direction of the project. The MTR report points out a number of positive developments in terms of strengthening institutional capacities at the sub-national level, improved vertical and horizontal information flows, greater emphasis on participatory and inclusive bottom-up planning and etc. At the same time, recognizing the constraints in which the project operates, a number of strategic entry points were identified to strengthen project performance through greater emphasis on learning and knowledge transfer for policy change.The Township Governance Officer (TGO) will work under the overall guidance of the Project Manager and direct supervision of the Senior Technical and Management Specialist in Mon State. The Township Governance Officer will provide high quality support to implementation of the project in the assigned township in close collaboration with the project staff and the UNDP Country Office in Myanmar.

Central to this process is the shift of decision-making power and budgets from the union level to the subnational level. State/Region governments and State/Region parliaments have been established, with their own budgets, their own decision-making power and their own accountability mechanisms, including checks and balances.UNDP's Township Democratic Local Governance Project (TDLG) addresses the institutional challenges in Myanmar's local governance structures, emphasizing planning at the township level as one entry point in trying to make local governments more inclusive and responsive to people's needs. The project is designed along four work streams to strengthen the capacities of township administrations to meet local needs for public services; to facilitate information sharing and meaningful participation by the public in planning processes; to facilitate township administrations engaging with Ethnic Armed Organizations (EAOs) on service delivery coordination (and involve them in township planning processes); to foster participation of civil society in local governance/ township planning; and to utilize lessons learned by the project to advocate for policy change.The Township Democratic Local Governance project (TDLG project) contributes to UNDP Country Programme 2018-2022, Output1.: 'Effective public institutions enabled to develop and implement evidence-based policies and systems that respond to the needs of the people.'In 2019, UNDP has commissioned a forward-looking mid-term review of TDLG to assess the progress towards the achievement of the project objectives and outcomes as specified in the project document and identify early signs of project success and areas for improvement to guide the future direction of the project. The MTR report points out a number of positive developments in terms of strengthening institutional capacities at the sub-national level, improved vertical and horizontal information flows, greater emphasis on participatory and inclusive bottom-up planning and etc. At the same time, recognizing the constraints in which the project operates, a number of strategic entry points were identified to strengthen project performance through greater emphasis on learning and knowledge transfer for policy change.The Township Governance Officer (TGO) will work under the overall guidance of the Project Manager and direct supervision of the Senior Technical and Management Specialist in Mon State. The Township Governance Officer will provide high quality support to implementation of the project in the assigned township in close collaboration with the project staff and the UNDP Country Office in Myanmar.

The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.In emergencies, WFP gets food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help communities rebuild their shattered lives. On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. The organization has the global footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide access to nutritious food and contribute to the lasting solutions, especially in many of the world's most remote and fragile areas.WFP has been presented in Myanmar since 1994 and is now focusing on helping the Government reach its national Zero Hunger Challenge by 2025. WFP's work in the country is guided by three priorities: emergency preparedness and response; nutrition; and provision of social safety nets.The Myanmar CSP 2018-2022 approved by the WFP Executive Board in November 2017 and it aims to contribute to three Strategic Outcomes that are aligned to four Strategic Results of SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for Development). A total of eight Activities are planned to be implemented to achieve the contributions to the three Strategic Outcomes. Under the Integrated Road Map (IRM) WFP has committed to a new way of working, linking not only all activities to the defined Strategic Outcomes, but also linking the resources used for implementing the activities to the results achieved.The three strategic outcomes are: SO1: Crisis-affected people in food insecure areas meet their food and nutrition needs all year round. Lifesaving food andddd/or cash will be provided to women, men, girls and boys affected by natural disasters, armed conflict and inter-communal violence.SO 2: 'Vulnerable people in states and regions with high food insecurity and/or malnutrition have access to food all year round.' WFP will provide food/cash assistance to vulnerable populations, while providing technical assistance to support the government in strengthening its social protection programmes, food systems and emergency preparedness capacity.SO 3: 'Children under 5 in Myanmar have improved nutrition in line with national targets by 2022.' WFP will contribute to increasing the availability and access to safe and nutritious food for vulnerable and affected populations in crisis and non-crisis situations to enhance their nutrition and resilience. WFP will also support the government in implementing national nutrition.ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXTThis post is located at WFP Office in Nay Pyi Taw.At this level, job holders are responsible for technical work including the planning, implementation and co-ordination of activities that require thorough understanding of programme/project context, issues and ability to apply a range of guidelines/practices.
