UN Youth Volunteer in Monitoring and Evaluation 2018 for Young Evaluators


Strengthening the UN system’s monitoring and evaluation capacity through the deployment of young evaluators

Under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN reform agenda, monitoring and evaluation capacities are more important than ever to achieve UN system effectiveness and to strengthen the capabilities of countries in the achievement of their own localized SDGs and national development policies. In a new collaboration, UNV, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and EvalYouth are looking for young evaluators to serve the United Nations as UN Youth Volunteers.

UNV, UNFPA and EvalYouth, in partnership with UNDP, UNICEF, UN Women, WFP, FAO and DPKO, are looking for talented young evaluators to serve the United Nations as UN Youth Volunteers.

UN Youth Volunteers, who receive a monthly living allowance and a benefits package, can be impactful resources to support monitoring and evaluation efforts. UN Volunteers can contribute to national SDG monitoring, evaluation and reporting; support monitoring and evaluation of UN Development Assistance Frameworks and Common Country Assessments; assist with innovative forms of data gathering; provide analysis and support communications efforts; contribute to the development of training programmes on monitoring and evaluation, including building capacities of national and local stakeholders; and engage local stakeholders and marginalized groups, particularly in deep-field and remote locations.

Assignments could take place with a variety of UN organizations, including UNFPA, UNDP, UN Women, UNICEF, FAO, WFP and DPKO for a time period of six months to two years. Selected UN Youth Volunteers will be based in country, regional or headquarters offices around the world. Additional information is available on the description of assignment available here.
