Global Communities is seeking an experienced Local Governance Team Lead for the anticipated USAID Democratic Governance East Activity (UDGE). This is a five year project with a projected budget of $57-60M.
The purpose of the Ukraine Democratic Governance in the East (UDGE) program is to support USAID’s objectives of promoting inclusive civic identity, common civic values, and a unified Ukraine by addressing the divisive impacts of Russia’s aggression, cases of far-right Ukrainian nationalism, and the consequences of ongoing armed conflict through increased citizen participation, improved service delivery and more responsive governance.
The program will be managed from and focused on the Donbas region, with most activities taking place in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts, as well as potentially in other southern and eastern Oblasts.
The Local Governance Team Lead will oversee technical implementation of all program activities related to local governance strengthening in the anticipated Democratic Governance East (UDGE) program.
The Local Governance Team Lead will supervise a team of managers and program coordinators, to implement technical assistance activities with local, municipal, and regional governments, including institutional strengthening activities, service delivery improvement strategies, and citizen outreach and engagement.
