UNDP, the development arm of the United Nations system, is seeking an experienced Project Manager to run two projects that it is implementing in partnership with the City of Skopje.

The first project, “Resilient Skopje,” aims to help the city face the threats posed by climate change, air pollution and other environmental threats, and to work with the municipal public administration to design and deliver better services for its citizens. The second project, “ICT for Urban Resilience,” aims at strengthening capacities of the City of Skopje administration for planning and provision of services with use of ICT solutions and increasing the urban resilience of the City of Skopje.

The core activities of the first project include:

  • Building a “green roof” for the GTC shopping center;
  • “Greening” the slopes of the Kale Fortress;
  • Transforming 12 areas of urban blight (eg, illegal garbage dumps) into “green” corners;
  • Leading an advocacy campaign to reduce the burning of wood and other pollution sources for heat;
  • Upgrading the valorization studies for the protected areas “Canyon Matka” and “Vodno”;
  • Managing a research agenda for the municipality to generate a biotope map, an inventory of water habitats, a groundwater study, and a basic design for a “green corridor” along the Serava River; and
  • Working with the city’s “innovation lab” to redesign administrative processes with citizen input.

The core activities of the second project include:

  • Skopje Green Cadaster – phase III;
  • Study for identification of sustainable sources of technical water for industry, private sector and communal enterprises;
  • Development of an action plan for urban heat islands and implementation of at least one priority action;
  • Development of external plan for technical/technological disasters;
  • Updating the Register of underground wells for the Skopje agglomeration;
  • Upgrading the Erosion GEO-database and development of thematic GIS maps for the City of Skopje;
  • Revision of Vodno erosion and flesh floods protection system;
  • Progress report on implementation of the Resilient Skopje Strategy.

Requirements include a university degree in Environmental Engineering, Biology, Forestry, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Law, Economy, or a similar field.

The deadline to apply is October 10, 2018. Further details are available here.

The UNDP office in Skopje employs a team of 65 and currently manages a portfolio of projects in environmental protection, good governance, and social inclusion worth more than USD 15 million per year.
