Background and Purpose of Post:

UN-Habitat will support the Government of Afghanistan to implement the four year Kabul Strengthening Municipal Nahias Programme (K-SMNP) starting from 1 June 2016.  The Programme is underpinned by the fact that harnessing Afghanistan’s cities for state building and peace-building requires three fundamental components: (i) effective land management and clear land rights and responsibilities; (ii) strategic urban planning to guide investments and establish a common vision for an inclusive and prosperous urban future; and (iii) improved municipal governance, citizen engagement and representation. 

Together, these create the fundamental conditions for improved state-society relations, stimulating the economy, promoting investment, increasing the legitimacy of the state in the eyes of the citizens and strengthening municipal institutions. 

The Overall Objective (OO) is to improve stability and stimulate local economic development in Kabul city through enhancing municipal governance and strengthening the social contract between citizens and the state.

The Specific Objective (SO) is to increase tenure security and land management and administration for inclusive urban economic growth and service delivery in Kabul city.

The three expected Results (R) are: R1: Strengthened municipal capacities and systems for urban planning, land management and municipal revenue/finance; R2: Improved municipal service delivery and strengthened “social contract” between citizens and municipal authorities; R3: Improved enabling environment for urban land management and administration, municipal governance, local economic development and service delivery.

To spearhead this Programme, UN-Habitat is looking for a highly qualified expert on Land Administration and Management to be considered as Chief Technical Advisor/Chief of Party.
