Job Description

The Junior Analyst and Communications Consultant will support information management and communication efforts at the 10YFP Secretariat in the context of the Global Strategy for SDG12 and SCP strategy.

Duties and Responsibilities

The 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), adopted by Heads of State at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, is a global framework for action to accelerate the shift towards Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in both developed and developing countries. UNEP was mandated by the UN General Assembly to serve as the Secretariat of the 10YFP. As reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 10YFP plays a central role in achieving the shift to SCP: its implementation is the first target of Sustainable Development Goal 12 on “Ensuring sustainable consumption and production”; the 10YFP is also recognized as the Framework of reference for decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation in SDG 8. The 10YFP generates impact through multi-stakeholder programs and partnerships, which develop, replicate, and scale up SCP policies and practices at all levels and which form together with the One Planet network

2022 is a crucial year for the 10YFP – One Planet network Secretariat, as the initiative, is currently transitioning towards a second phase which will run until 2030. The Secretariat is leading the development of a post-2022 Global Strategy on SDG12 and SCP, building on a very strong political momentum for SDG12 and SCP, as key to achieving the international community’s objectives on climate, biodiversity, and pollution. A junior Information management and Communications consultant is required to support this transition process and more specifically the Secretariat’s engagement and coordination activities involving its key partners, Member States, and relevant platforms and initiatives for the materialization of the post-2022 Global Strategy for SDG12 and SCP.
