UNV - United Nations Volunteers


Mission and objectives

In 2002, as an independent country, Timor-Leste joined the UN, and a new UN mission was created (UN Mission of Support in East Timor, UNMISET) to support core administrative structures until UNMIT was put in place in 2006. The 2015–2019 UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) period was the first time since the restoration of independence in 2002 that the UN mandate had focused solely on sustainable development without the presence of a UN peacekeeping or political mission.
The confidence entrusted in the UN by the people and the Government of Timor-Leste as a neutral and impartial development partner is founded on the history of the UN in-country starting from the country’s independence. Over the past twenty years, the UN has accompanied the country’s journey, with currently 16 resident and non-resident agencies including UNODC, UN Technology Bank, and International Telecommunication Union.
The relationship of trust with the people and the Government of Timor-Leste allows the UN to effectively play a policy development and advocacy role at all levels. As a multilateral international organization, the UN in Timor-Leste bring knowledge, expertise, experiences, lessons learned, and innovative approaches from other countries and regions, including through facilitation of south-south and triangular cooperation. The UN is also well-suited to Timor-Leste’s capacity to deal with cross-boundary and regional issues, including health epidemics, migration, maritime issues, organized crime, and cross-border cooperation.


The UN Volunteer will support the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) 2021-2025 including the development of the new UNSDCF. The UN Volunteer will support the development, monitoring and reporting of Joint Funds (such as Joint Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Funds) and Multi-Partner Trust Funds (MPTF). The UN Volunteer will play a key role in ensuring that results are consolidated and communicated in a compelling and clear way, for example through annual reports and the Joint Steering Committee meeting, which includes members of the Government of Timor-Leste, the UN and civil society. The UN Volunteer will review and capture the impact of the UN’s initiatives across six critical transition areas: food systems, energy, digital connectivity, education, jobs, and climate change. This analysis will form the foundation for identifying and developing ‘bankable projects’ that can accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in partnership with the Government of Timor-Leste.
