UNDP Indonesia's mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.”

In order to accelerate the human development process in Papua, the Government of Indonesia granted a special autonomy status to the provinces (OTSUS). Its full implementation has been delayed due to limited civil society participation and lack of capacity and coordination between national provincial and district level institutions, which has lead to the absence of an inclusive framework for developing sustainable economy.

Since 2006 the People-Centred Development Programme (PCDP) has been supporting local government institutions, civil society organizations and communities in the Papua Region in their efforts to improve human development and to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). 
In the second phase, the PCDP is established primarily to support the government at provincial and district level to achieve The Millennium Development Goals. 

Building a territory-based economic development institution or Local Economic Development Agencies (LEDA) in both provinces is expected to improve the economic welfare of communities. The goal is to institutionalize sustainable livelihood development for Papuan communities, generate income of Papuans, particularly in rural contexts, and to create value added of any potential business or agriculture commodities produced in the pilot areas.
UNDP Indonesia wishes to continue its support in Papua region and plan to develop an initiative to follow-up programme beyond 2014 that gives emphasis on local governance-enabling environment and local economic development. If PCDP can achieve good results by 2014 in terms of LEDA and/or micro-finance for Papuan indigenous people, there is opportunity to expand the model to utilize the provincial/local government funds (in form of special autonomous funds).
Under the supervision and reporting to the Local Economic Development (LED) Specialist, LED Associate supports the implementation of the UNDP - PCDP portfolio in Papua Province. The main role of LED Associate is to support the effective implementation of PCDP local economic development initiatives in Papua Province and provide technical assistances to other relevant stakeholders in provinces and pilot districts, support the establishment of new partnerships with development partners and private sector to strengthen the PCDP, while also support project assurance, and overall monitoring and other relevant operational issues.
