Overview of position

The position is located with the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific of the Regional Programmes Division and based in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The Regional Programmes Division is responsible for consolidating and enhancing the linkages between UN Habitat's activities in the field with the Strategic Plan, the 2030 Agenda, and the UN-Habitat’s overall future priorities and to make sure that they are appropriate to the country context.

UN-Habitat’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific manages UN-Habitat’s project portfolio in the Asia and Pacific region. It ensures that country priorities are in alignment with the UN-Habitat’s organizational policies and strategic objectives and brings through its Regional Representative to the attention of the Executive Management Committee (EMC) opportunities and challenges in the region, allowing for timely feedback and responses to urgent demands and requests from the Member States.

Since 1992, UN-Habitat has worked closely with Afghan communities, contributing to the physical and social reconstruction of the country. Our work has focused on the development of urban policies and regulations; strategic urban planning; increasing municipal revenue; establishing community-based organizations; addressing the land and housing needs of IDPs and returnees and contributing to the provision of basic urban services.

The August 2021 fall of Afghanistan’s government has caused a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan’s cities. Over half a million people have been displaced by conflict in 2021; many have sought refuge in the relative safety of cities. In this context, critical government functions have ceased, resulting in lifesaving municipal services being suspended. In addition, as development aid has been withdrawn, incomes of urban dwellers have declined, while the cost of food and other essential items have increased dramatically. The unfolding crisis in Afghan cities is occurring in a context of underlying vulnerabilities, including infrastructure deficits, insecure livelihoods and pervasive tenure insecurity. Most at risk are displaced people in informal settlements, with women, disabled and ethnic minorities being particularly vulnerable.  

UN-Habitat’s community-centered People’s Process is a proven and effective to reduce vulnerability at scale in the Afghan context. Since 1992, UN-Habitat has partnered with communities in informal settlements to reintegrate displaced urban Afghans into sustainable settlements. The People’s Process delivers support for the urban displaced through Community Development Councils (CDCs) and Gozar Assemblies (GAs). UN-Habitat-community partnerships center participatory spatial planning to enable communities to identify and implement priority service and infrastructure investments to support their socioeconomic development.  

Through the People’s Process, the incumbent will support a community-centered approach to secure tenure, upgrade basic services and infrastructure for highly vulnerable displaced people living in urban informal settlements in Afghan cities.   In doing so, the incumbent will support the implementation of activities that meet the immediate needs of vulnerable urban residents and contribute to sustainable development and peacebuilding.
