Organizational Context/Project:

UNDP has been in Viet Nam since 1977, when there was very limited donor and international presence. Since that time, UNDP’s role in Viet Nam has evolved through the country’s many stages of transition, struggle and success. At UNDP, Viet Nam we continue to provide critical support in the areas of democratic governance and participation; inclusive and equitable growth; and sustainable development, climate change and disaster risk reduction. Our efforts to support Viet Nam’s development agenda are firmly grounded in the context of the One Strategic Plan, the consolidated programme of work of all UN agencies working in Viet Nam.

In our work we continue to be guided by our principles of human development, equity and human rights. UNDP in Viet Nam has programme work in the area of public administration, anti-corruption, rule of law/access to justice (RoL) and human rights in the following areas and with the following key partners.

The ‘EU Justice and Legal Empowerment’ Programmme is implemented by UNDP under the leadership of the Ministry of Justice alongside a component that supports to civil society engagement in the justice sector. The project supports a number of Viet Nam’s key priorities in legal and judicial reform. As well as continuing to support the implementation of the Strategy for the Development of Viet Nam's Legal System to the Year 2010 with vision to 2020 (LSDS), the project also supports the Judicial Reform Steering Committee’s Secretariat to conduct cross-cutting research on implementation of the Judicial Reform Strategy to 2020 (JRS). The project also seeks to strengthen the role of civil society in justice sector reform. The project will begin in the third quarter of 2017 and this initial year will involve significant work on building the follow on programme strategy, in partnership with government agencies.

The policy research and advocacy function in Governance and Participation provides the Government and stakeholders with best practice, high-quality policy advice on how to respond to a range of acute challenges focussed on Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Agenda to promote government accountability, human rights and access to justice. The intern will support the Governance and Participation Team to work towards improving governance and public administration at the provincial level. In particular, the intern will support the team working on the Vietnam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI, see www.papi.org.vn/en), a policy monitoring tool that reflects citizens’ experiences with government performance each year, since 2011. In this initiative, UNDP Vietnam partners with the Centre for Community Support and Development and the Centre for Research and Training of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front. PAPI also interacts with Provincial People’s Committees and other governmental, research, and non-profit organizations.

Human rights protection is a cross cutting theme in the programme activities of the GPT unit. The GPT unit have previously chaired the UN wide Human Rights Technical Working Group, and will continue to play an active role in the newly developed Human Rights Thematic Group supporting the UN in Viet Nam One Strategic Plan 2017-21. GPT will contribute to UN wide efforts to protect and promote human rights by taking forward the business and human rights agenda in Vietnam, including implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, assisting in the support to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in efforts to coordinate implementation of the recommendations under the UPR 2nd cycle review, and continue to assess draft legislative amendments in line with Vietnam’s international human rights commitments. The GPT also chairs the Informal Development Partners Working Group on Human Rights, an external group of partners that the UN convenes to share information on Human Rights in Viet Nam.

The intern will work in the Governance and Participation unit of UNDP in direct support of these programme areas.
