The UN Volunteer will live in Baghdad, which is not a family duty station. The official offices of UNDP will be located inside the “International Zone”, which comprised all UN Offices operating out of Baghdad. Generally speaking, stringent security measures are in place throughout the country, and UN Volunteers, as other UN staff, are quite limited in all duty stations in Iraq when it comes to movement (walking virtually not allowed). Movement is done inside the “International Zone”, in armored vehicles. This assignment requires travel outside the duty station to project locations in different parts of the country, as required by the job. International personnel operating in Iraq must take online security awareness trainings (Basic Security and Advanced Security in the Field) prior to arrival in Iraq and undertake a mandatory Security Induction Awareness Training (SAIT) immediately upon arrival. The Rest and Recuperation (R&R) cycle for the Baghdad duty station is 4 weeks, with the designated place of R&R being Amman, Jordan. There are many international flights to and from Erbil, Baghdad and Basra. There is no particular dress code to be observed; however somewhat conservative European casual wear is highly recommended. Depending on the field location of project activities, additional considerations with regards to dress code can be required, and advice on the required would be provided by the Project. The dominant currency in use in Iraq is USD. The Iraqi Dinar is used with an exchange rate of approximately USD 1 = 1,460 Iraqi Dinar. UN personnel need to be culturally sensitive and adjust to the culture of the country.
