2 UNDP Operations Unit to prepare and hold awareness-raising events on how the UNDP processes and systems work, and the rules and regulations, which apply to UNDP procurement including recruitment.
3 UNDP to hold awareness events on how the DEX2NEX project will be taken forward and when this will take place.
