Following devastation caused to life, livelihoods and property by tropical storm Idai in March 2019, the WB has allocated up to US$ 75 million to finance the Zimbabwe Idai Recovery Project (ZIRP). The Project addresses both early and mid-term recovery needs in multiple sectors (livelihoods, health, education, agriculture). UNOPS has been requested to manage the WB funds and is establishing a Project Implementation Unit (PIU). UNOPS, via the PIU, will engage multiple UN partner organisations to deliver specific components of ZIRP. The PIU will be located in Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe, and is expected to be operational for 3 years.

Under the direct supervision of the Project Manager PIU, the Environmental Specialist is required to assist in the implementation of the Environment and Social Management Framework (ESMF) and ensure that all Project activities are aligned with World Bank Environment and Social Standards, or other guidance, as outlined in the ESMF. This includes the supervision and monitoring of all implementing partners as well as activities of the UNOPS infrastructure Office in Mutare.

The incumbent is responsible to abide by security policies, administrative instructions, plans and procedures of the UN Security Management System and that of UNOPS.
