Cari Makan, which is Bahasa Malaysia for "search for livelihood" (literally, looking to eat), is a public-facing publication on the lived experience of COVID-19 in Malaysia. The publication explores the experiences of different personas, showing how the pandemic has impacted different segments of society differently, and looks to make sustainable development tangible to the Malaysian public. The publication is available at

The launch event for Cari Makan is targeted at stakeholders in various sustainable development issues as well as the general public. UNDP wants to make this an avenue for stakeholders and citizens to provide perspectives and direct recommendations in four thematic areas: work and livelihoods, vulnerabilities, art and education, and health and environment. Each thematic area will be explored through a series of four dialogue sessions, hosted by conversation-partners working in that area. Each dialogue session will be an hour, featuring a reading of an excerpt from Cari Makan and a reflection by the conversation-partner, followed by open dialogue with the audience. The dialogue sessions will be recorded and published as a podcast series for further comments and public engagement. UNDP will use the findings from this dialogue to engage the Malaysian government on crisis response, humanitarian support preparedness planning, and strengthening of institutions and their interfaces at all levels.

The volunteer will edit audio recordings of a public dialogue event accompanying the launch of a UNDP publication, Cari Makan, on the lived experience of sustainable development during the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia. There will be four tracks of public dialogue: work and livelihoods; vulnerability; art and education; and health and environment. The event will be held on Zoom on November 24th, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Malaysia time (GMT+8).

Each volunteer will edit the recordings for one track, consisting of four 1-hour dialogue sessions on various topics within each track. The recordings will need to be edited to produce a recording that is accessible and attractive to a general public audience. The recordings will be released as podcasts, so the editing will need to take place within a 4-week period of the event.

Previous experience with audio editing is a requirement. Please describe your previous experience and submit a sample of your work. Fluency in English is a requirement, and proficiency with Bahasa Malaysia will be advantageous.
