Job Description
The UN system in Pakistan has developed a second generation One Programme (OP II) for a period of five years (2013-2017) in collaboration with federal, provincial and regional governments, key donors, and a wide spectrum of civil society actors. Key milestones during the development process included: finalization of the Common Country Assessment (CCA), multi-stakeholder consultations in all provinces and regions of Pakistan, completion of One Programme reviews, a National Prioritization Workshop, and a Strategic Prioritization Retreat (SPR) held with key national and provincial government partners to agree on priority areas and key outcomes. Provincial and regional consultations formed the bedrock upon which the UN prioritization process was developed. This broad consultation ensured that there was provincial ownership and validation of OPII, which is especially important in light of the 18th Amendment. Lessons learned from the first phase of the One Programme (OP I) and the UN’s comparative advantage have featured strongly in the development of OP II.
On the basis of extensive consultations, the Government of Pakistan and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) identified the following 6 key Strategic Priority Areas (SPAs) with 20 outcomes around which the UN system in Pakistan is currently developing its operational plan/ results framework for the period 2013-17. The SPAs reflect priorities identified through national and provincial consultations and a review of key national frameworks and strategies. They include:
1.Vulnerable and marginalized populations have equitable access and use of quality services
