National Program for Village Development Support Program (PNDS-SP)
Cardno Emerging Markets is seeking energetic and enthusiastic candidates to work as part of a highly skilled team of the PNDS Support Program.
The Programa Nasional Dezenvolvimentu Suku (PNDS), or National Program for Village Development, is a nation-wide community development program of the Government of Timor-Leste. Jointly managed by the Ministry of State Administration and Ministry of Finance the PNDS program aims to work with communities at the village level to help eliminate poverty by investing in community-driven infrastructure projects. The Government is providing each village with an annual grant of around US$50,000 to plan, construct and manage their own small scale infrastructure projects. They have allocated approximately 275 social, technical and finance facilitators to every sub-district in the country to support villagers to plan and implement projects. These facilitators are supervised and assisted by district accountants and engineers.
During the pilot and first phase of construction (2013-14) more than 220 infrastructure projects have been built by the community. The PSP2 and Government of Timor-Leste would now like to engage two independent consultants to undertake a technical review of the quality of infrastructure built to date
The Government of Australia (GoA) is assisting the Government of Timor-Leste (GoTL) to implement PNDS through the PNDS Support Program Phase II (PSP-II) managed by Cardno Emerging Markets.
