Duties and Responsibilities

The United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) is the United Nations system-designated entity for addressing environmental issues at the global and regional level. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action.

The Crisis Management Branch delivers high quality environmental expertise to national governments and partners in the UN family. Field based assessments of the environmental impact of crises form the core of UN Environment's conflict and disaster management operations. However, as the international community has shifted its focus from post-crisis intervention to crisis prevention, the branch has also expanded its operational range, adding disaster risk reduction and environmental cooperation for peacebuilding to its core services of post-crisis environmental assessment and recovery.

The Sudan Country Programme is one of the Branch's key programmes. One of the Sudan Country Programme's main projects is ADAPT!, a project aiming to increase the understanding and integration of climate resilience and environmental management into project delivery, plans and policy.

A consultant is needed to support the information management and communications activities of the Crisis Management Branch, particularly regarding the Sudan Country Programme’s communications, in collaboration with the existing members of the team, in particular in the areas of publications and information management.
