UNDP Pakistan works with the Government and communities to develop and implement local solutions to development challenges. In an evolving development context, UNDP supports the efforts of Governoment of Pakistan to build a more equitable, prosperous, peaceful and resilient society, and to achieve its SDGs and COP25 targets.

The country is faced with water scarcity, loss of land productivity, environmental degradation, biodiversity loss and extreme weather events due to climate change and variability. The Resilience environment and climate change unit (RECCU) oversees, coordinates and manages implementation of porgrammes that promote sustainable development through greater progress in environmental protection.

The Government of Pakistan has recognized the threat from GLOFs in its National Climate Change Policy. GLOF and flood related hazards are already greater than what the national public finance can manage. To be able to strengthen capacities of vulnerable communities to address the GLOF issue urgently in the scale that is needed, the Government of Pakistan, with support from UNDP secured GCF resources to upscale ongoing initiatives on enhancing resilience of communities to climate change induced disasters in KP and GB, particularly GLOF risks. The interventions proposed for scale-up by this project will be based on activities implemented in two districts that have demonstrated success. In these districts engineering structures like gabion walls have been constructed and automatic weather stations, rain gauges and discharge equipment have been installed. Rural communities receiving this support were able to avoid human and material losses from GLOF events. The proposed GCF project will expand coverage of interventions to fifteen districts in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan. It will strengthen the technical capacity of national and sub-national decision makers to integrate climate change and disaster risk management into medium- and long-term development planning processes

Incumbent will support the office to run the operations (assigned duties) smoothly and contribute towards the overall goal of the MP project.
