The World Bank – Washington, DC
The South Asia Sustainable Development Unit – Urban, Water and Sanitation (SASDU) is recruiting a Lead Water and Sanitation (WSS) Specialist to take a leading role in its urban water and sanitation programs. The South Asia region at the WB group serves 8 client countries with a total population of about 1.4 billion. Client countries comprise IBRD/IDA countries: Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka/Maldives. The team is managed through the SASDU manager, with strong field offices in each country. In total there are approximately 28 staff in SASDU with about half in Washington and half in field offices. While South Asian countries have expanded water supply coverage over the past decade, there is still a need to augment water sources to many low-income areas in cities/towns and remote villages in lagging regions. Even where formal services are established, there is need for higher quality of services, better service standards and reliability, more efficiency, and sustainability. Poor quality, unreliable and inefficient services are all symptoms of the highly dysfunctional institutional and policy environment that the WSS sector in South Asia faces. Rural schemes, which have traditionally relied on community based management for their management, need to be linked back into local government institutions for improved sustainability and accountability – but these institutions remain weak. Urban schemes on the other hand face a lack of capacity amongst urban local bodies to fully take responsibility for WSS services. This is particularly challenging given that pressure on urban centers is growing, demanding more responsiveness from local authorities. Institutional reform in all market segments – urban, rural, towns – is critical to the Bank’s engagement in the region. Finally, there is also a growing challenge related to sanitation services, both in rural and urban areas. Open defecation is still a serious issue in many rural villages. Many cities in South Asia lack appropriate investments in urban drainage, sewerage, and solid waste management sectors. Climate change and increase in extreme weather events also challenge the poor drainage and sanitation situations. Against this backdrop, SASDU focuses on both the rural water supply and sanitation, and urban water supply and sanitation support to our client countries through lending, implementation support, and advisory, knowledge, and technical assistance. SASDU works collaboratively with other units within the Sustainable Development Department (SASSD), in addition to working across the Bank networks and with other institutions of the Bank group. The Lead Water and Sanitation Specialist will work as an integral part of the SASDU team and provide operational and technical leadership and coordination at each stage of the project cycle for lending operations (e.g. IDA/IBRD preparation, appraisal, and supervision), GEF projects, GPOBA work, carbon finance projects, and the AAA sector work. He/she will be responsible for task management, operations oversight, building long-term business relationships with national and local stakeholders through policy dialogue, strategic communications, and outreach activities. Furthermore, he/she will lead efforts in knowledge management to ensure best practices and lessons learned are reflected on the unit’s operations. Importantly the candidate should have experience of working with federal systems and, ideally in both the LIC and MIC agenda. The Lead Specialist is expected to have a leadership role complementary to that of the Sector Manager, in areas such as technical quality enhancement, technical learning, technical mentorship, and innovation. Note: If the selected candidate is a current Bank Group staff member with a Regular or Open-Ended appointment, s/he will retain his/her Regular or Open-Ended appointment. All others will be offered a 3 year term appointment.

Duties and Accountabilities:

– Provide technical leadership in the water supply and sanitation in SAR, and support the integration of WSS with urban development in the unit; – Lead and or participate in task teams to deliver major investment and knowledge services, provide critical inputs to the development policy lending operations, and develop new business opportunities in the urban sector in the region; – Provide operational leadership on SASDU projects in a dynamic environment where the clients’ demand on solutions for urban development challenges is large and increasing; keep updated of the needs of SASDU clients and be proactive to provide better, faster and better targeted client response; and engage with clients and other stakeholders to increase their support and understanding of project-related Bank’s policies. – Lead and/or contribute to, policy dialogues and just-in-time knowledge service in national and sub-national policies on urban and rural water and sanitation sectors; help enhance the capacity of our clients to respond to WSS challenges through programs, projects, and knowledge services; – Assist country teams in the inclusion of the WSS agenda in CASs, CPSs, and other country reports such as CEMs, provide input in the design and execution of policy and or research initiatives; and conceive, and promote innovations in Bank policies and sector strategies; identifying opportunities for cross-sectoral collaboration; – Provide leadership to the WSS cluster team in SASDU, facilitating team building, learning and knowledge sharing, collaboration and synergies; providing technical and career guidance to junior staff in the sector. – Maintain up-to-date knowledge of WSS sector developments in the region and help ensure that the Bank’s overall WSS program remains relevant to evolving developments in the region; – Facilitate cooperative arrangements within the World Bank Group especially with the water anchor and the Water Sanitation program (WSP); and representation of the unit in the urban sector board where required; – Working with the water anchor, help develop knowledge products and training activities to improve best practice in and outside of the Bank in the WSS sector; – Provide coaching and mentoring on-the-job to junior staff in the unit.
