As @NevKen said it is for locals. However, who is a "local"? UNOPS answers this as "anybody who has a work permit for the country of the posting".

This means if you e.g. live in Sweden, you could apply to a local ICA in Denmark (Swedes are allowed to work in Denmark). Or if you were to be a spouse of G4 visa holder working for the UN in New York you could go for a local ICA in NY etc. The point of a LICA is that you will not get any relocation consideration and that UNOPS will not (beyond reasonable steps to e.g. confirm a work offer to local authorities) support you in getting a visa/work permit for that location. Good luck!
I'm Sebastian from the UN Job List. I know about the UN Job List and also a little about the UN in general.
