Econometrician

One of our leading clients is looking for Econometrician in KPK

The Government of KP has adopted a multi-year Accelerated Implementation Program (AIP), 2019-2022, to address the key developmental gaps in the Merged Areas (MA), erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). The government has a limited bureaucratic capacity and is ill-equipped to developmental challenges faced by the MAs. UNDP is implementing its Merged Areas Governance Project (MAGP) as a key partner in the process of Merged Areas development by providing technical assistance to the government.

The recent pandemic of Corvid-19 has created a new set of challenges for all institutions including governments. The kinds of problems created have not been faced by anyone in recent history going back for at least a hundred years. The concern is that apart from the (hopefully) short term effects on the health of the population resulting from the high transmission rate of the virus, there will be more long-term effects on the economy.

The economic effects will affect much larger segments of the population particularly the vast majority that is engaged in informal sectors. In order to counter the effects of this crisis, the Government of KP has formed a Task Force. The Lead Economic Adviser of MAGP is a member of the task force. The purpose of the task force is to analyze the current economic situation and suggest remedies and mitigation strategies. For this purpose, the services of two different senior economic analysts are required.

The Econometrician will report to the Lead Economic Advisor (LEA) MAGP and carry out the following duties and responsibilities:

  • Assist KP Economic Task Force in data management and run econometric models provided by LEA
  • Run an analysis of the effects of mitigation measures on econometric activities across sectors.
  • The performance will be assessed on the tasks assigned by the Lead Economic Advisor.
