The main mandate of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) is to promote sustainable development of human settlements and policies conducive to adequate housing for all.

Within this framework, UN-Habitat supports central and state governments, as well as local authorities and other partners for the implementation of the Habitat Agenda, the 2030 Agenda with the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

UN-Habitat helps the urban poor by transforming... cities into safer, more inclusive, compact, integrated, resilient and connected places with better opportunities where everyone can live with dignity.

It works with organizations at every level, including all spheres of government, civil society and the private sector to help build, manage, plan and finance sustainable urban development.
The Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean - ROLAC - is based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Agency puts emphasis on developing and managing activities in the host country.

Indeed, for the past years, UN-Habitat has expanded its portfolio in Brazil by working with the three tiers of government in order to support the formulation and implementation of more effective, sustainable, participative and socially fairer urban economic, social and environmental policies.

UN-Habitat is starting a new project with the Municipality of São Paulo through the Secretariat of Green and Environment (Secretaria do Verde e Meio Ambiente - SVMA) that aims to implement city-wide and neighbourhood-level approaches to generate more inclusive and sustainable green public spaces, based on the principles of the New Urban Agenda and the SDGs.

The project will help Municipality authorities to visualize the main gaps and opportunities of the municipal green public spaces system, strengthening São Paulo's inclusivity and sustainability through policy advice, capacity building, knowledge sharing and technical support for the regeneration and improvement of its network of public spaces and green areas.

In order to support the implementation and communication of this Project and UN-Habitat's mandate in Brazil, we are looking for a Data Analyst.
