Cadre organisationnel

The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-Habitat, is the agency for human settlements. It is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities with the goal of providing adequate shelter for all (www.unhabitat.org). The support provided by UN-Habitat ensures that the innovative characteristics of universality, interconnectedness, and indivisibility of the Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are localized.

The work on SDG localization is guided by a partnership-based territorial approach and its core principles are to leave no one and no territory behind, multilevel governance, and multi-stakeholder partnerships. These principles are translated into practice through innovation-based and action-oriented initiatives, following UN-Habitat’s corporative three-pronged approach: (i) Global Urban Monitoring Framework; (ii) Voluntary Local Review; (iii) SDG Cities Flagship Programme. Through this integrated approach, UN-Habitat provides support throughout all stages of the SDG localization process: from data innovation to strategic planning, policy formulation, capacity 31.08.2022 development, supporting the delivery of high-impact projects, monitoring, reporting, and certifying exceptional achievements of cities towards the SDGs.

UN-Habitat has also been working to advance SDG localization by providing technical expertise to partners across the globe, leading the development of cutting-edge research, capacitating local and regional governments on SDG localization, and strengthening the voice of local governments and local actors within the main international and UN-led fora on SDGs.

Within UN-Habitat, and located at the Urban Practices Branch, the SDG Localization and Local Governments Team is helping the agency in advancing the work on these fronts, leading the corporative narrative of UN-Habitat on SDG localization, and providing high-level advocacy support. Moreover, since 2019, the team has been assisting local governments across Latin America, Europe, and Asia to develop their Voluntary Local Reviews (VLRs) and enhanced their links with Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs). This experience was a crucial learning process to create and consolidate a fully-fledged methodology on VLRs that is now being applied to more than 20 new city cooperation schemes worldwide.

In addition, two projects were launched in the past year focused on: (a) Voluntary local reviews: evidence for greener, resilient, and sustainable urban recovery in Eastern European and Central Asian countries in transition, and (b) Fostering COVID-19 recovery and SDG implementation through local action in Asia-Pacific, Arab and African countries. The objective of the projects is to advance socioeconomic recovery and localization of the SDGs in selected countries and to harness the potential of VLRs for the design of local recovery plans.

In this context, this internship is aimed at supporting advocacy, speech writing, and communication activities of UN-Habitat and the Urban Practices Branch on advancing the work on local governments and SDG localization. This post is located in the Urban Practices Branch of UN-Habitat and under the direct supervision of the Human Settlements Officer on SDG Localization and Local Governments.

Charte des Nations Unies

Aux termes du paragraphe 3 de l’Article 101 de la Charte des Nations Unies, la considération dominante dans le recrutement du personnel doit être la nécessité d’assurer à l’Organisation les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. Ne seront pas retenues les candidatures des personnes qui ont commis des violations du droit international des droits de l’homme, des violations du droit international humanitaire, des actes d’exploitation, d’atteintes ou de harcèlement sexuels, ou au sujet desquelles il existe des raisons plausibles de croire qu’elles ont été impliquées dans la commission de tels actes. L’expression « exploitation sexuelle » désigne le fait d’abuser ou de tenter d’abuser d’un état de vulnérabilité, d’un rapport de force inégal ou de rapports de confiance à des fins sexuelles, y compris mais non exclusivement en vue d’en tirer un avantage pécuniaire, social ou politique. On entend par « atteinte sexuelle » toute atteinte physique de nature sexuelle commise par la force, sous la contrainte ou à la faveur d’un rapport inégal, ou la menace d’une telle atteinte. Le harcèlement sexuel s'entend de tout comportement déplacé à connotation sexuelle raisonnablement propre ou de nature à choquer ou humilier, lorsqu'il entrave la bonne marche du service, est présenté comme une condition d'emploi ou crée au lieu de travail un climat d'intimidation, d'hostilité ou de vexation, et lorsque ce comportement est assez grave pour justifier le licenciement de son auteur. La candidature de personnes qui ont commis des infractions autres que des infractions mineures au code de la route ne sera pas retenue.

Sera dûment prise en considération l'importance d'un recrutement effectué sur une base géographique aussi large que possible. Aucune restriction ne sera imposée par l'Organisation à l'accès des hommes et des femmes, dans des conditions égales, à toutes les fonctions, dans ses organes principaux et subsidiaires. Le Secrétariat de l'Organisation des Nations Unies est un espace non-fumeurs.

La considération dominante dans l’engagement, la mutation ou la promotion du personnel est la nécessité de s’assurer les services de personnes possédant les plus hautes qualités de travail, de compétence et d’intégrité. En acceptant une offre d’engagement, les membres du personnel sont soumis(es) à l’autorité du Secrétaire général, qui peut leur assigner l’une quelconque des tâches ou l’un quelconque des postes de l’Organisation des Nations Unies, conformément à l’alinéa c) de l’article 1.2 du Statut du personnel. Dans ce contexte, tous les membres du personnel recrutés sur le plan international sont tenus de changer de fonctions périodiquement à l’intérieur d’un même lieu d’affectation ou dans un autre lieu d’affectation, dans les conditions fixées par le Secrétaire général.

Les candidats sont invités à respecter scrupuleusement toutes les instructions disponibles sur la plateforme de recrutement en ligne Inspira.
