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 to provide adequate shelter for all ( UN-Habitat, the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, is mandated by the UN General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities. It is the focal point for the UN system's urbanization and human settlement matters.

According to United Nations reports, Guinea's urbanisation rate aligns with the African average: of 37% in 2014 (UNDESA, 2014). This figure, which was 28% in 1990, is likely to reach 56% by 2050; that is, the urban population estimated at 4.4 million in 2014 will increase by 67.9% and will acquire 13.7 million in 2050. The country is moving towards urban transition and needs to prepare. To this end, appropriate measures must be taken, implemented, and regularly monitored by the authorities and the population to improve the ongoing urbanization process in Conakry, secondary or tertiary cities, and villages. The new neighbourhoods that constitute the predominant landscape in many urban agglomerations are generally composed of precarious and unhealthy dwellings and suffer from a lack of local public services and an integrated and well-functioning sanitation system.

To contribute to the improvement of urban living conditions in Guinea, the European Union, in collaboration with the Government of Guinea, has adopted urban sanitation as a focal sector in the National Indicative Program (PIN) of the 11th European Development Fund (EDF). The urban development and sanitation program in Guinea (abbreviated SANITA), jointly decided by the two stakeholders, is divided into two specific objectives: (i) strengthen urban governance at the local and national levels, which will be realized with the technical support of UN-Habitat (component 1), and (ii) improve the access of urban populations in the Conakry and Kindia neighbourhoods to essential sanitation services with the support of the Belgian development agency "Enable" (Component 2).
Component 1 is placed under the tutelage of the Ministry in charge of Housing and Territorial Development. The activities are carried out in collaboration with national and local public or private institutions, including community organizations or civil society. Emphasis is being placed on the engagement of women and youth.
The expected results of this component are:

Outcome 1 (R1): Institutional capacities for the implementation and monitoring of framework documents are strengthened.
Outcome 2 (R2): A national urban policy defining the different actors' strategic orientations, roles, and responsibilities is developed and validated.
Outcome 3 (R3): The implementation of the National Planning Scheme (SNAT) of 1991 is evaluated, and new strategic orientations (white paper) are defined and validated.
Outcome 4 (R4): Capital city planning documents, with appropriate action plans considering climate change, are developed and validated in a participatory manner.
Outcome 5 (R5): Priority pilot projects are developed and implemented by creating or strengthening inclusive consultation spaces and multi-actor dialogue.

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.
