Description

As a key partner in the Resilience debate in Zimbabwe, UNDP has in partnership with a number of donors taken the lead in designing the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund (ZRBF). The overall objective of the fund will be to contribute to increased capacities of communities to protect development gains and achieve improved well-being outcomes in the face of shocks and stresses enabling them to contribute to economic growth of Zimbabwe. This will be achieved through a combination of 3 sets of results which will focus on a) creating a body of evidence for increased application of evidence in policy making and application for resilience; b) setting up a multi donor trust for Resilience Building in Zimbabwe to allow for partners to come together around the Resilience Framework and principles to improve the absorptive, adaptive and transformative capacities of at-risk communities; and c) setting up a risk financing mechanism which will provide appropriate, predictable, coordinated and timely response to risk and shocks from a resilience perspective. 
 
Operating on the principles of joint programming the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund will aim to provide flexible, coordinated and predictable funding of approximately 80 million USD to support the achievement of increased national resilience to shocks – aligning to nationally owned and determined priorities. By improving coordination among all stakeholders, the Fund can also provide a forum for policy dialogue, and programmatic coordination and harmonization as well as building up a body of evidence for improved joint targeting and programme design.
 
Under the guidance and supervision of the Programme Manager, the Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Specialist is responsible for the delivery of expert advice and analytical support to the ZRBF team as well as partners on matters related to analysis and measuring of resilience and performance of ZRBF. He/she develops systems and tools for the targeting of investment areas for Resilience as well as for monitoring and assessment of activities funded under ZRBF in line with innovative methodologies and best practice. He/She leads the undertaking of complex multi-sectorial, multi-level analysis and prepare timely reports and guidance to enable effective decision-making. The Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Specialist promotes a collaborative, client-oriented approach consistent with UNDP rules and regulations.
