Background 

The joint UNDP-DPPA programme on building national capacities for conflict prevention has made a ground-breaking contribution in bridging the gap between political engagement and development assistance in pursuit of preventing conflict and sustaining peace. In its new phase (2019-2023), the Joint UNDP-DPPA Programme will further strengthen the analytical capacities of national stakeholders and the UN system in support of Member States’ efforts to advance policy and programmatic coherence on conflict prevention and support strategies for sustaining peace.
The deployment of Peace and Development Advisors (PDA) and has been the primary instrument of the Joint Programme to provide capacity for Resident Coordinators and UN Country Teams (UNCT) to support national partners in dialogue and national or local mediation processes, the establishment and operationalization of national infrastructures and mechanisms for peace; and other initiatives aimed at sustaining peace. There are currently 49 PDA positions across the globe.
In an effort to ensure that PDAs are better equipped and empowered to deliver on their mandates, the Joint Programme has established in a number of contexts small ‘Peace and Development teams’ where a national Peace and Development Officer provides reinforced capacity to the PDA’s engagement in support of the RCOs and UNCTs in the area of conflict prevention and sustaining peace.
Since 2011, Tunisia has undertaken a promising path towards democracy, with the establishment of new democratic institutions and the consolidation of Human Rights. With parliamentary and presidential elections scheduled in the last quarter, 2019 announces itself as a pivotal year for Tunisia. The elections will mark another milestone in Tunisia’s transition, following in the footsteps of the country’s first ever democratic municipal elections of May 2018. Despite the progress, the country is struggling to revive its economy and address inequalities after decades of neglect of interior regions. Frustrations due to high expectations for a quick and substantive change of living conditions have prompted some disenchantment against the political process. Social unrest is frequent, especially in inland poor regions.
Given the ongoing challenges, capacities for analysis and advice to the UNCT will be especially sought after and the need for a good understanding of dynamics is crucial to help the UN set programming and advocacy in a politically-aware and context-sensitive manner. The national PDO will play an essential role in supporting the PDA in: (i) understanding context developments and trends, (ii) assisting the RC and the PDA with initiatives around good governance, social inclusion, social cohesion, sustaining peace, the elections, and (iii) supporting coordination and partnerships with national counterparts and institutions
