The United Nations System in China is embarking on the formulation of the new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF). The priorities under UNSDCF are primarily derived from a UN wide Country Analysis (UNCA).

The UN CA is the UN system’s independent, impartial and collective assessment and analysis of the country situation. The CA will examine the progress, gaps, opportunities and bottlenecks vis-à-vis China’s commitment to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, UN norms and standards and the principles of the UN Charter. The findings of the CA will help to strategically position the UN system in China based on robust evidence-based analysis on sustainable development. It will also provide the basis for future programming and represents a powerful source of information to help the UN system engage with national stakeholders, including advocating for policy changes.

The CA process will be guided by “leaving no one behind” (LNOB), human rights-based approach to development (HRBA), gender equality and women’s empowerment, as well as resilience, sustainability, and accountability. It will examine China’s priorities and support and align with the 14th Five-year Plan.

The CA process will require consultation and engagement with the Government of China and other relevant stakeholders such as development partners, private sector, civil society and non-government organizations (CSO, NGO), academia and research institutions, etc. While most of the consultations will be in China, in the spirit of the new UNSDCF, which explicitly recognizes regional and transboundary elements in country analysis, and China’s evolving role in global partnerships, the CA for China will also involve consultations with stakeholders outside of China.

In this context, the UN system in China seeks to recruit a suitable and experienced Junior Consultant, with experience in research and analysis that feeds into strategic development cooperation frameworks for multilateral organizations or international financial institutions. This consultancy aims to reinforce the existing capacity in the Resident Coordinator Office (RCO) to conduct analytical research informing the new program cycle and specifically, those processes related to preparing the new UNSDCF, including the evaluation of the current Assistance Framework, conducting a Common Country Analysis (CA), and preparing the new UNSDCF.
