Description

Description

All MONUSCO duty stations are considered non-family duty stations, excluding Lubumbashi, Entebbe and Kinshasa, which are now considered family duty stations, and most are now under UN Security Phase III (“replacement point”: internationally-recruited staff are momentarily focused or relocated to quantified sites/locations). In addition to insecurity linked to the comparatively unstable political situation as well as numerous conflict circumstances, certain places are subject to growing street and residential crime, including in Kinshasa and Goma.

 

Some degree of medical facility is provided in all MONUSCO duty stations. Certain vaccinations are obligatory for MONUSCO employees to enter the DRC, while others are obligatory for all other arriving persons. It is possible for incoming MONUSCO employees, including UN Volunteers, to be asked to provide proof of some or all vaccinations, though this is doubtful. All UN Volunteers must make sure that they are up-to-date with all suitable vaccinations, which should be evidently and appropriately endorsed in the International Certificate of Vaccination (“carte jaune”). Malaria is present virtually throughout the DRC, and it is then suggested to take prophylaxis.

Benefits

Benefits

A UN Volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

 

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities, transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post-Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,651. The VLA base rate is a global rate across the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to the cost of living.

 

This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on the ICSC website http://icsc.un.org.
