Promoting climate action and innovative financing including risk and insurance solutions is one of UNDP’s key priorities in Ghana. Under its current Country Programme (2018-2022), UNDP aims to strengthen public institutional capacities and build partnerships with the private sector to reduce environmental degradation and implement climate action, as well as facilitate access to information, knowledge and tools that promote green jobs, citizen participation in environmental conservation, and community resilience. In this regard, UNDP has been facilitating public-private partnerships to promote risk financing and inclusive insurance in Ghana.
In order to streamline its financial and investment engagement, UNDP launched the Finance Sector Hub, a finance and innovation platform, that draws on a critical mass of UNDP expertise, initiatives, and partnerships to support the mobilization and leveraging of resources for the SDGs and lead the implementation of the new UNDP private sector strategy and other initiatives. In line with this, the UNDP Ghana Country Office seeks to engage the services of a National Coordinator who will be responsible for Day-to-Day Administration and will manage and deliver the work of the insurance/risk finance portfolio in-country, supported by the CO Environment and Climate Cluster as well as dedicated consultancy support (both technical and logistical) through the life of the Programme. The Coordinator will work closely with national stakeholders and lead on the planning of workshops and events, liaise with the insurance industry working on ISF initiatives at the country level including national monitoring, evaluation and reporting. He/She will ensure implementation mechanisms such as a technical working groups are established and meet regularly and that that all planned activities are organized in a timely manner and that they meet expected quality standards.
