The UNDP’s Blue Resilience project is a development-aid governance project funded by the Norwegian government under its Blue Justice Initiative (BJI).
The BJI provides capacity support to operationalise the International Declaration against Transnational Organized Crime in the Global Fishing Industry (Copenhagen Declaration) in identified developing countries. The Copenhagen Declaration maps out a goal-oriented political plan to address transnational organized crime in the fisheries sector globally towards achievement of the UN SDGs, with particular emphasis on government institutional cooperation towards this end.
The objective of Blue Resilience is to strengthen capacity for institutional cooperation towards effective governance responses to addressing organized crime in the fisheries sector. The project is research-based towards designing and delivering a sustainable learning package on improved institutional cooperation to enhance enforcement efforts against organized crime in fisheries in the target countries.
The Blue Justice project is hosted by the UNDP Nordic Representation office (NRO). It is a highly visible governance project funded by a key donor country and has direct links to NRO's work on core resource mobilization.
The Blue Justice Community (BJ Community) is a secure digital platform that facilitates communication and cooperation between invited developing country government representatives (‘users’) by providing key services: knowledge, connection and support. The BJ Community is owned by the Norwegian government (Norwegian Coastal Administration: Barents Watch) and is utilized for capacity support under the BJI. The BJ Community is administered by UNDP Blue Resilience and, as such, UNDP facilitates the ability of users to access and effectively utilize the BJ Community and uploads curated relevant knowledge to the BJ Community (including e-learning) material towards strengthening user cooperation.
The incumbent of this post will report directly to the Blue Resilience Project Manager and thereafter to the Partnership Specialist, UNDP NRO/Norway.
