Job Description
Background

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP: we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions. 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.
The “Green Job Creation through Recycling and Upcycling in Pokhara Metropolitan City (GCRU) project” is designed to promote green economy by establishing recycling/upcycling enterprises based on the model of the circular economy against the ongoing ‘throw away’ approach, thereby increasing green jobs and reducing the pollution and environmental impact of the solid waste. Similarly, a cleaner city will have a big positive impact primarily on tourism business in Pokhara. This objective will be achieved through three interlinked areas of interventions: 1) policy and coordination, 2) promotion of RU enterprises, and 3) empowering communities for increased awareness and community level RU initiatives.
The project aims to become a model example of a successful public-private partnership, which would encourage the rest of the province and other municipalities to follow the Green Economy approach. Waste management, environmental protection and jobs creation are emerging challenges of Nepal’s urbanization. The project will also offer a sustainable solution to address these challenges and contribute to operationalize federalism by strengthening the capacity of the local government in line with the spirit of the constitution. This project directly contribute to SDGs Goal 1, SDGs 8, SDGs goal 11 .6 – Proportion of urban solid waste regularly collected and with adequate final discharge out of total urban solid waste generated, by cities and Goal 12.5 – By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse. The project will also contribute to achieve waste related targets of Nepal’s second Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Targets that are directly relevant are 1) by 2030, create an enabling environment for both public and private sector to treat industrial and municipal waste, including faecal sludge, 2) By 2030, adopt and implement waste segregation, recycling and waste-to-energy programs in at least 100 municipalities, 3) By 2030, the burning of healthcare waste in 1,400 healthcare facilities will be prohibited by proper management of healthcare waste through the application of non-burn technologies, 4) Promote the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) approach to waste management, along with source segregation and management of degradable and non-degradable waste, 5) Focus on co-production of energy and organic fertilizer from solid waste, wastewater and faecal sludge.
Enabling policy environment for incentivize existing and potential RUs will also encourage communities and the public to proactively contribute to minimize the burden of waste management by source segregation and increased source recovery. Learning and educational platforms like Green Venture Zone would respond to the learning needs and innovation for RUs required to complement opportunities created by an enabling policy environment. Community level RU groups created as a result of sustained public awareness and skill development would perfectly complement with the Green Venture Zone. These groups could be the direct beneficiaries of the GVZ incubation and educational programmes, and a foundation to supply necessary raw materials (refined and cleaned materials) for the RUs promoted by GVZ.
