Position N°: 50069784
The Hiring Department
The Transition States Coordination Office (RDTS) oversees the implementation of the Bank Group’s Strategy for Addressing Fragility and Building Resilience in its Regional Member Countries (RMCs). It also coordinates the lending and non-lending activities of all fragility and resilience experts stationed in the various Regional Directorates or Country Offices. Apart from RMCs, the Bank also works with several international partners including the African Union (AU), the United Nations (UN) system, Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and other sub-regional organizations such as the G5 Sahel Permanent Secretariat, Lake Chad Basin Commission, IGAD, and the Mano River Union(MRU) Secretariat. The Bank also works with several humanitarian, peace and development actors working in fragile and conflict affected situations.
Over the past decade, Africa has seen enormous growth and transformation that has expanded opportunities and improved living conditions for millions of people. More than two-thirds of African countries have strengthened their quality of governance, improved basic services, and expanded economic opportunities. Yet, there are significant risks that this momentum could be undermined by emerging pressures which include conflict and instability, population displacement and migration, continuing patterns of exclusion and poverty, unemployment, rapid urbanization, climate change and poor management of natural resources. More recently, the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic, is expected to significant adverse effects and far reaching consequences for fragile and conflict affected countries.
RDTS aims to place the Bank at the center of Africa’s efforts to address fragility and pave the way for a more resilient and inclusive development trajectory. A major part of RDTS’ activities involves the identification of the main drivers of fragility, including economic, social, political and environmental dimensions, through the application of the Country Resilience and Fragility Assessment (CRFA) tool and corresponding fragility assessments. RDTS also plays a crucial role in mainstreaming fragility considerations in the Bank’s regional and country strategies as well as in the design and implementation of projects and programs. In this regard, central to
RDTS engagement is the systematic application of a fragility lens to identify, respond to and prevent fragility and to build resilience and focus the Bank’s engagement in the areas where it can have the biggest impact. To this end, the Bank is also active in carrying out thematic analytics to enhance policy dialogue on fragility related issues to steer reforms and policy changes aimed at creating enabling environments for accelerated development in fragile and conflict affected countries. This includes creating a business enabling environment to attract private sector investments in these countries, as a way of expanding opportunities for decent work.
