Head of Resident Coordinator's Office in Mozambique

Carlos Dinis is the Head of the Resident Coordinator's Office in Mozambique since February 2020. Building on his decade of experience leading cross-functional Resident Coordinator’s Office teams and fostering national ownership of strategic planning processes in complex settings where humanitarian, development, and peace agendas intersect, Carlos is committed to operationalizing a cross-pillar approach to respond to the challenges in the North of the country, facing attacks by Non-State Armed Groups.
He has ensured that peace is a critical component of the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2022-2026) for Mozambique. He was instrumental in strengthening the collaboration with the Government throughout the Cooperation Framework formulation process. He also represented the United Nations in the technical team for the Recovery and Peacebuilding Assessment (RPBA) that guides the international community's support to the national integrated development and resilience programme.
Under the leadership of the Resident Coordinator, he is currently working towards scaling up the footprint of the United Nations in the North by supporting the engagement of the Secretary-General's Peacebuilding Fund and the operationalization of the new Multi-Partner Trust Fund he helped create. UN agencies are now coming together to formulate joint interventions and frame their action under a single “UN Response Plan for the North”.
