Duties and Responsibilities

Context and organizational framework

  • The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-Habitat, is the agency for human settlements. It is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to promote socially and environmentally sustainable cities, with the aim of providing adequate housing for all. UN-Habitat is the lead agency within the United Nations for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda. UN-Habitat supports Member States and development partners to transform cities into safer, more resilient and healthier places with better opportunities. She works with organizations at all levels, including all spheres of government, civil society and the private sector. The incumbent will be based in Conakry (Guinea).
  • The UN-Habitat Regional Office for Africa (ROAf) is working with the government of Guinea Conakry for the implementation of the SANITA program (Urban Development and Sanitation Program in Guinea). Within the framework of the National Indicative Program (NIP) of the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), urban sanitation is identified as a priority. The decision to improve the health situation encourages an integrated territorial approach while promoting inclusive and sustainable urban and territorial policies.
  • There was a first project implementing this sector, the Urban Development and Sanitation Program in Guinea (SANITA), signed in December 2017 for an amount of 42 million euros. The general objective of SANITA is to improve the sanitary environment and the quality of life of urban populations, particularly in Conakry and Kindia. This time, in this action entitled “Urban Development and Sanitation Program in Guinea (SANITA) – Sustainable Cities”, it is a question of strengthening urban governance at the local and national level under the responsibility of UN-Habitat. This main objective can be broken down into two specific secondary objectives, which are:
  • Improving in a participatory manner the legal, regulatory and institutional framework for urban development at the national level and in the city of Conakry in particular;
  • Strengthen the institutional capacities and skills of stakeholders in the development and implementation of policy documents and urban and territorial planning through a participatory approach, taking into account the gender issue.
