Document Category: Cities For All, Consultants, Job Opening

UN-Habitat is supporting the Government of Afghanistan to implement the City for All (CFA) programme in Kabul, the capital city, and in seven other provincial cities. The programme has received funding from USAID and the European Union and is being implemented from 2016 until 2020. The CFA programme is underpinned by the fact that harnessing Afghanistan’s cities for state building and peace-building requires three fundamental components:

  1. Effective land management
  2. Strategic urban/action planning
  3. Improved municipal finance and governance

UN-Habitat is looking for a highly qualified communications expert to educate CFA programme beneficiaries on the objectives and their role in the programme, to keep programme stakeholders including the donors abreast of the progress and achievements of the programme, and to inform various audiences in and outside Afghanistan of the impact of the programme. Under the overall supervision of the Senior Human Settlements Officer, UN-Habitat Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) and direct supervision of the Chief of Party, and Country Programme Manager in Afghanistan, and in close cooperation with the Advocacy, Outreach & Communication Branch at UN-Habitat HQs, the Communications Advisor will be responsible for the following tasks and activities:

  1. Design and implement the communications strategy for CFA programme
  2. Plan CFA outreach and events in collaboration with programme staff
  3. Ensure adequate representation of CFA programme in the press and media
  4. Online communications
  5. Writing and editing
