As a pathway into the world of development, the programme offers young professionals excellent exposure to multilateral cooperation and sustainable development while providing a valuable entry point into the UN system.

During their assignments, JPOs benefit from the guidance of experienced UNDP staff members and are actively involved in supporting the design and implementation of UNDP’s programs within UNDP’s headquarters, regional or country offices.

Tanzania aspires to become a middle-income country by 2025 through a push for increased industrialization for economic transformation and human development. In doing so, the government underlines the importance of good governance and the rule of law, as well as peace and stability, in creating wealth and sharing benefits, emphasizing that people must be empowered to hold leaders and public servants accountable for their performance (Tanzania Development Vision 2025). In working with Tanzania to achieve this aspiration, UNDP brings a strong record of supporting the country to improve democratic governance, through specialized expertise and international good practices and networks.
