Head of Exploration

Head of Exploration II. Job Purpose and Organizational Context The National Development Plan set the bar high – aiming to realize an ambitious set of development objectives in a three-year period. Major problems continue to bedevil the economic and development front. For example, high youth unemployment, weak development of business in the agriculture sectors (fisheries, farming, livestock), unsustainable forest and water management, very large numbers of IDPs coming to the urban centers, and limited public service provision. The traditional ways of working will not be sufficient to realize the NDP objectives nor to achieve the Agenda 2030 principle of “leaving no one behind.” Innovative approaches are needed to turn these challenges into serious social and economic ventures that can make a positive impact that ripples across the country, including for those most marginalized and at risk, like low-income women, youth, and IDPs. UNDP Somalia in collaboration with the Federal Government of Somalia Ministry of Planning, Investment and Economic Development and the Ministry of Trade and Industry launched the “Innovate for Somalia” project in July 2017 and successfully organized the several Social Innovation Camps in Somalia. Within this context, social innovation is a potential force for widespread engagement and collaborative solution-seeking and can be leveraged to address four key issues: Limited window of opportunity. The window of opportunity in Somalia, as in any fragile setting, is limited. After the protracted conflict, citizens have very high expectations of the new government, which is to replace the previous unorganized and often predatory governance arrangements. Citizens expect the government system to provide - or to ensure - that non-state actors provide services and opportunities that have a direct impact on their quality of life in a manner that is commensurate with their expectations concerning service delivery. Collaboration between state and non-state actors required. The government system is still very young, still in the process of establishing itself fully and is faced with a very low level of revenue (estimated to be some 4 to 5% of GDP). Even while the financial position of the government is improving, it will take several years before the government will generate sufficient revenue to engage in large enough investment and service delivery to satisfy the expectations of the citizens. Hence, collaboration and engagement with non-state actors is essential. Unlock the most efficient and effective approaches. Even if the Government would have sufficient revenue to invest, this still might not be the most efficient and effective manner to stimulate private sector development, create employment and provide services to improve the living conditions. Non-state actors might be better placed and more effective in identifying the actual needs and the opportunities and existing resources. Collaborative approaches, based on solid understanding of roles and responsibilities and commensurate with implementation capacities of the involved agencies, in the context of Somalia, are likely to prove to be a constructive avenue ahead. The usual versus the unusual suspects. Most development initiatives evolve within a limited network of professionals (the ‘usual suspects’) who know each other and who regularly meet in coordination settings. Innovative approaches have the capacity to reach out to potential actors that do not circulate in these networks (the ‘unusual suspects’), and – importantly – can engage ordinary citizens directly into the problem or opportunity identification and subsequent solution design, building a much more inclusive, transparent and open development arena. The UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021 embraces the complexity of development and commits the organization to helping countries find faster, more durable solutions to achieve Agenda 2030. Important development trends like urbanization, displacement, climate change, and inequality pose significant challenges on our path to achieve the 2030 agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UNDP has begun incubating a number of strategic initiatives aimed at ensuring UNDP is ‘fit for purpose’ to deliver a new generation of solutions in line with the challenges the world faces. One such key strategic initiatives is the Country Accelerator Lab Network. The initiative is a recognition that increasingly interrelated development challenges require going beyond business as usual and single point, linear and silver bullet responses in development. Instead, they call for an interdisciplinary approaches and non-linear solutions that crowd in the collective efforts of variety of partners and tap into local insights and the knowledge of people closest to the problem and the solutions. The initiative is also a recognition and an investment in the emerging momentum among a growing number of UNDP Country Offices around joining together disruptive, cutting edge methodologies with contextual, country-based insights and expertise to accelerate impact and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. US: of complexity science, lead user innovation and collective intelligence to accelerate development impact. Our network will surface and reinforce locally sourced solutions at scale while mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge, resources and experience. The idea is to transform our collective approach by introducing new protocols, backed by evidence and practice, which accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. This will enable the global community to collectively learn from local knowledge and ingenuity at a speed and at a scale that our societies and planet require. This will be achieved by: We are building the largest and fastest learning global network of Accelerator Labs (initially setting up 60 labs in 60 countries) embedded within UNDP’s global architecture and country platforms. The new offering builds on the latest thinking from the fields Building on locally-sourced solutions, finding things that work and expanding on them; Rapid testing and iteration to implement what works and go beyond the obvious solutions; Combining the best understanding, ideas and expertise to generate collective knowledge; Accelerating progress by bringing expertise, creativity and collective intelligence to bear. The Accelerator Lab will undertake i) external facing interventions addressing priority development challenges, and ii) internally facing experiments to embed new ways of doing development within the existing UNDP portfolio. You: You are capable and excited about starting, design and managing activities, direct engagement with local communities and collaboration across global networks. You are driven by learning new things, figuring out how they work and translating them across sectors. You have a natural inclination to interdisciplinarity, cross cultural mindset and cross sectoral experience with the cosmopolitan attraction for diversity. You are driven by a strong sense of purpose and commitment to make change happen and a keen eye to identify emerging opportunities and ‘at the edge’ trends. You are open to discovery and exploration, capable of articulating insights and ideas through visual thinking, open to serendipity and discovery yet are pragmatic and constructive working with public sector authorities. You are comfortable with ambiquity, capable of zooming out for context and zooming in for content and execution- sharp in pursuit of objectives, fast at adapting and changing course when needed. You have superb compentencies in program and portfolio management, are at ease with decision-making processes and dynamics of different models of governance. You are curious, quirky and fun, natural strategic thinkers and talented designers. You understand systems, the good, the bad and the ugly, and are capable of working within them to make change, leverage technology to extend, enhance and multiply exploration, discovery and execution. You are digitally savy, you hack tools, and you are keen to be a part of a large global organization exhibiting United Nations values. III. Duties and Responsibilities Horizon scanning and market intelligence for the Somalia Accelerator Lab Identify, visualize and communicate emerging development trends,dat a, technologies and issues with a particular focus on the edges and “below the radar screen” events, opportunities and players, and systemically map their impacts on economy, environment, society, and livelihoods of the poorest.

Within the first 6-8 months of the Lab fully functioning, the core team will be expected to double up on the functional roles and in consultation with the UNDP Country Office, manage operations and scale innovations into the UNDP Country Office, story-telling and communications, and interface with the broader Accelerator Lab network. Accelerator lab capabilities will cover: Experimentation (instituting rapid learning about emerging challenges through design and running of a portfolio of experiments that is coherent with the type of challenges UNDP COs are mandated to address), and Ethnography: deep immersion in community dynamics, identification of and work with lead users, and implications of bottom up solutions for the policy design Exploration: The exploration function focuses on discovery and sensemaking of emerging trends, implications for systemic impacts and risks, and their potential for accelerating progress toward SDGs. Its work feeds into the portfolio of experiments ensuring its coherence with the emerging risks and opportunities (direct collaboration with the Experimentation Lead), and connects local dynamics and solutions (link with the Ethnography Lead) into the broader national and international ecosystem of potential funders, partners, and allies thereby increasing the chances for acceleration. While critical for the functioning of the Accelerator Lab, the exploration function will also service the Country Office as determined and agreed with the UNDP senior management.

Head of Experimentation

Head of Experimentation II. Job Purpose and Organizational Context The National Development Plan set the bar high – aiming to realize an ambitious set of development objectives in a three-year period. Major problems continue to bedevil the economic and development front. For example, high youth unemployment, weak development of business in the agriculture sectors (fisheries, farming, livestock), unsustainable forest and water management, very large numbers of IDPs coming to the urban centers, and limited public service provision. The traditional ways of working will not be sufficient to realize the NDP objectives nor to achieve the Agenda 2030 principle of “leaving no one behind.” Innovative approaches are needed to turn these challenges into serious social and economic ventures that can make a positive impact that ripples across the country, including for those most marginalized and at risk, like low-income women, youth, and IDPs. UNDP Somalia in collaboration with the Federal Government of Somalia Ministry of Planning, Investment and Economic Development and the Ministry of Trade and Industry launched the “Innovate for Somalia” project in July 2017 and successfully organized the several Social Innovation Camps in Somalia. Within this context, social innovation is a potential force for widespread engagement and collaborative solution-seeking and can be leveraged to address four key issues: · Limited window of opportunity. The window of opportunity in Somalia, as in any fragile setting, is limited. After the protracted conflict, citizens have very high expectations of the new government, which is to replace the previous unorganized and often predatory governance arrangements. Citizens expect the government system to provide - or to ensure - that non-state actors provide services and opportunities that have a direct impact on their quality of life in a manner that is commensurate with their expectations concerning service delivery. · Collaboration between state and non-state actors required. The government system is still very young, still in the process of establishing itself fully and is faced with a very low level of revenue (estimated to be some 4 to 5% of GDP). Even while the financial position of the government is improving, it will take several years before the government will generate sufficient revenue to engage in large enough investment and service delivery to satisfy the expectations of the citizens. Hence, collaboration and engagement with non-state actors is essential. · Unlock the most efficient and effective approaches. Even if the Government would have sufficient revenue to invest, this still might not be the most efficient and effective manner to stimulate private sector development, create employment and provide services to improve the living conditions. Non-state actors might be better placed and more effective in identifying the actual needs and the opportunities and existing resources. Collaborative approaches, based on solid understanding of roles and responsibilities and commensurate with implementation capacities of the involved agencies, in the context of Somalia, are likely to prove to be a constructive avenue ahead. · The usual versus the unusual suspects. Most development initiatives evolve within a limited network of professionals (the ‘usual suspects’) who know each other and who regularly meet in coordination settings. Innovative approaches have the capacity to reach out to potential actors that do not circulate in these networks (the ‘unusual suspects’), and – importantly – can engage ordinary citizens directly into the problem or opportunity identification and subsequent solution design, building a much more inclusive, transparent and open development arena. The UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021 embraces the complexity of development and commits the organization to helping countries find faster, more durable solutions to achieve Agenda 2030. Important development trends like urbanization, displacement, climate change and rising inequalities pose significant challenges on our path to achieve the 2030 agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UNDP has begun incubating a number of strategic initiatives aimed at ensuring UNDP is ‘fit for purpose’ to deliver a new generation of solutions in line with the challenges the world faces. One such key strategic initiatives is the Country Accelerator Lab Network. The initiative is a recognition that increasingly interrelated development challenges require going beyond business as usual and single point, linear and silver bullet responses in development. Instead, they call for an interdisciplinary approaches and non-linear solutions that crowd in the collective efforts of variety of partners and tap into local insights and the knowledge of people closest to the problem and the solutions. The initiative is also a recognition and an investment in the emerging momentum among a growing number of UNDP Country Offices around joining together disruptive, cutting edge methodologies with contextual, country-based insights and expertise to accelerate impact and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. US: We are building the largest and fastest learning global network of Accelerator Labs (initially setting up 60 labs in 60 countries) embedded within UNDP’s global architecture and country platforms. The new offering builds on the latest thinking from the fields of complexity science, lead user innovation and collective intelligence to accelerate development impact. Our network will surface and reinforce locally sourced solutions at scale while mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge, resources and experience. The idea is to transform our collective approach by introducing new protocols, backed by evidence and practice, which accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. This will enable the global community to collectively learn from local knowledge and ingenuity at a speed and at a scale that our societies and planet require. This will be achieved by: Building on locally-sourced solutions, finding things that work and expanding on them; Rapid testing and iteration to implement what works and go beyond the obvious solutions; Combining the best understanding, ideas and expertise to generate collective knowledge; Accelerating progress by bringing expertise, creativity and collective intelligence to bear. The Accelerator Lab will undertake i) external facing interventions addressing priority development challenges, and ii) internally facing experiments to embed new ways of doing development within the existing UNDP portfolio. You: You are capable and excited about starting, design and managing activities, direct engagement with local communities and collaboration across global networks. You are driven by learning new things, figuring out how they work and translating them across sectors. You tell stories of emergent solutions and you gravitate to solving global development challenges. You have a natural inclination to interdisciplinarity, cross cultural mindset and cross sectoral experience with the cosmopolitan attraction for diversity. You are driven by a strong sense of purpose and commitment to make change happen and a keen eye to identify emerging opportunities and ‘at the edge’ trends. You are open to discovery and exploration, capable of articulating insights and ideas through visual thinking, open to serendipity and discovery yet are pragmatic and constructive working with public sector authorities. You are comfortable with ambiquity, capable of zooming out for context and zooming in for content and execution- sharp in pursuit of objectives, fast at adapting and changing course when needed. You have superb compentencies in program and portfolio management, are at ease with decision-making processes and dynamics of different models of governance. You are curious, quirky and fun, natural strategic thinkers and talented designers. You understand systems, the good, the bad and the ugly, and are capable of working within bureaucracies to make change, leverage technology to extend, enhance and multiply exploration, discovery and execution.
