The UNDP Blue Resilience Project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs via the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries as host to the Blue Justice Secretariat. Blue Resilience is in support of the Norwegian government’s Blue Justice Initiative which operationalises the International Declaration against Transnational Organized Crime in the Global Fishing Industry (Copenhagen Declaration) in selected developing countries. The Copenhagen Declaration maps out a goal-oriented political plan to address transnational organized crime in the fisheries sector globally towards achievement of the UN SDGs, with particular emphasis on cooperative law enforcement towards this end. The objective of Blue Resilience is to strengthen capacity for institutional cooperation towards effective governance responses to addressing organized crime in the fisheries sector. The project is research-based towards designing and delivering a sustainable learning package on improved institutional cooperation to enhance enforcement efforts against organized crime in fisheries in the target countries.
The Blue Justice project is hosted by the UNDP Nordic Representation office (NRO). It is a highly visible governance project funded by a key donor country and has direct links to NRO’s work on core resource mobilisation. In this context, UNDP’s NRO is looking for a gender expert to support the Blue Resilience Project. The gender expert will report directly to the Project Manager.
Note: The assignment is estimated to yield a total of 13 days of work spread out over the course of the project.
