If selected your task will be to translate from English to Portuguese the Habitat Country Programme for the period 2017-2020, a document of 13 pages which refers to the Organization work areas for the coming years.Our Programme has been developing extensive work in Mozambique (Southern Africa) since 2002 and for the period of 2017-2020 it continues to contribute for the Government Priorities (aligned with the Fifth Plan of the Government of Mozambique). The UN-Habitat Country Programme for Mozambique is based on 3 pillars: (1) Territorial Transformation and Management; (2) Urban Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction and (3) Security of Land Tenure and Affordable Housing.
UN-Habitat is the United Nations Human Settlements Programme and is currently responsible for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goal 11 (Making Cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable), operating in Mozambique for 15 years in areas of urban development, housing, urban resilience, and disaster risk reduction. This document was prepared within an urban development context and a vision for the future of Mozambique in the next decades. Mozambique is going through an inevitable process of urbanization - the physical growth of urban areas from rural to urban regions, that requires the Country to be well prepared to respond to this process in the near future. UN-Habitat aims to support the Govern of Mozambique to manage and develop its urban and peri-urban areas to increase their resilience to natural hazards and ability to accommodate urban growth by reducing inequalities. It is intended to translate the document (13 pages) into a Portuguese version so that it can best be used by the authorities and other local cooperation partners and development programs in the Country.
