UN75 Communications and Planning Officer (National Specialist - THAR000320)

UN75 Communications and Planning Officer

(National Specialist - THAR000320)

 

 

Host entity: UN Development Coordination Office (UNDCO)

Duty station: Bangkok, Thailand

Start date: Immediate

Assignment Duration: 12 months

Application deadline: 03 February 2020

 

Organizational Context & Project Description

 

The UN Development Coordination Office (UN DCO) is the UN Office at the forefront of coordinating a collaborative contribution to the UN development system, towards its achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The position is located in the United Nations Regional Development Coordination Office in Bangkok. The incumbent reports directly to the Regional Director in close coordination with the P4 Regional Communications Officer, the Development Coordination Office communications team at HQ, working very closely with the United Nations Department of Global Communications (DGC), which sets the communications and advocacy priorities of the United Nations around the world.

 

To mark its 75th anniversary in 2020, the United Nations is igniting a people’s debate, UN75. Launched by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, it promises to be the largest and furthest-reaching global conversation ever on building the future we want.

 

In a world of dramatic changes and complex challenges, from the climate crisis to the population shifts to the unknown course of technology, we need collective action more than ever before.

 

Through UN75, the United Nations will encourage people to put their heads together to define how enhanced international cooperation can help realize a better world by 2045, the UN’s 100th birthday.

 

At this pivotal moment in history, UN75 asks three big questions: a) What kind of future do we want to create? b) Are we on track? c) What action is needed to bridge the gap?

 

Anyone can join the conversation. Online and offline, in formal and informal dialogues, UN75 will involve as many people as possible, ideally in all 193 UN Member States. Together, they will share their hopes and fears, assess current and future risks and opportunities, and source solutions for global cooperation.

 

UN organizations, country teams, and key stakeholders will have pivotal roles in taking three actions: A. Connect people: bring together diverse groups, especially those not often heard, to shape a new global dialogue.

B. Amplify their voices: open channels for people to talk and be heard.

C. Inspire action: provide feedback and share and advocate solutions.
