Office/Unit/Project Description (max 300 words)

The Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP) was launched in 2015 and UNHCR and UNDP have been co-leading the 3RP at the country and regional level. 3RP brings together more than 270 humanitarian and development partners to work together under a single plan to address both the immediate and longer-term needs of regugees, host communities and host countries (Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt). 3RP regional planning and monitoring efforts are coordinated by a UNHCR-UNDP Joint Secretariat (JS), hosted by the UNDP SRF at the UNDP RBAS Regional Hub in Amman. Within this framework, the UNDP SRF has lead responsibilities in guiding planning, monitoring, reporting and advocacy on 3RP resilience interventions. As the Syria crisis continues amid compounding crises, including COVID-19, the UNDP SRF continues to promote collective efforts to evolve the resilience response and make it fit-for purpose. The SRF notably renewed its longstanding partnership with the Government of Finland for 2021-2022 to strengthen the resilience response through enhancing capacities for resilience monitoring and expanding opportunities for innovation and private sector engagement in the response.


The resilience analyst is expected to support the SRF work under the 3RP Joint Secretariat (JS), working in close coordination with UNHCR, UNDP Country and Regional Offices to support the 3RP strategic planning by providing a robust analysis of the resilience component in the 3RP, both in terms of needs and response. In particular, the analysis will be expected to set up and facilitate a regional community of practice on resilience monitoring and measurement to enable regional and country specialists to share, exchange, and consolidate the latest approaches to building a stronger theoretical and practical M&E framework to guide resilience programming in crisis and protracted crisis context. The analyst will ensure that the work of this community of practice feeds in the 3RP planning (and vice-versa) and facilitate exchanges with other frameworks.
