    UNDP Consultancy Jobs In Kenya

    UNDP Consultancy Opportunity to Assess Development of SMEs as Suppliers to Kwale and Kitui Counties Extractive Industry

    United Nations Development Programme

    Supply Chain Analysis at the National Level and in Kwale and Kitui Counties to Inform the Development of Small and Medium-Size Enterprises (SMEs) as Suppliers to the Extractive Industry

    Background:

    The management of extractive industries is one of the most critical challenges facing many resource-dependent developing countries today.

    Rather than stimulating broad-based economic development, reliance on resource extraction has tended to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of a few, exacerbate corruption and inequalities, lead to environmental degradation and pollution, while doing little to reduce poverty, economic disparities and generate employment.

    Worse still, in many countries extractive resources have fuelled violent conflicts.

    In addition, gender equality and ensuring women`s issues especially, have not been given a visible arena within the extractive industries.

    In such contexts, there are thus several challenges for developing sustainable human development, and gains made over years of progress with respect to meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and democratic reforms can easily be undone.

    The recent announcement of oil discovery and other minerals has propelled Kenya as a new player in the global market for hydrocarbons and valued minerals.

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects that oil production in Kenya is expected to start in six to seven years from now, giving the country time to prepare to manage its endowment to the achieve its development goals as stipulated in the 2030 Vision.

    In addition to oil, Kenya is also rich in gas, rare earth metals, coal, iron ore, gold, limestone, gypsum, soda ash, gemstones, manganese ore, fluorspar, diatomite, titanium, zircon, chromite, niobium and silica sand.

    Most recently, Cortec Mining Kenya Limited has announced that Mrima Hills in Kwale County has one of the largest rare earth mineral deposits in the world with a potential in-ground value of up to $62.4 billion.

    According to Vision 2030, Kenya aims to be a middle-income rapidly industrializing country by 2030, offering all its citizens a high quality of life.

    To date, Kenya’s steady economic growth has not effectively translated into job creation and poverty reduction, and economic inequality in the country remains the highest in the East African region.

    The poor and vulnerable, including women and youth, do not sufficiently participate in, benefit from and shape economic growth.

    1. Supply Chain Analysis at the National Level and in Kwale and Kitui Counties to Inform the Development of Small and Medium-Size Enterprises (SMEs) as Suppliers to the Extractive Industry

    Output:

    The key output from this assignment will be a report on the “Supply Chain Analysis at National Level, as well as in Kwale and Kitui Counties, to inform the Development of Small- and Medium-Size Enterprises (SMSEs) As Suppliers to the Extractive Industry, Drawing on Lessons from Countries with More Mature Extractive Sectors”.

    2. Value Chain Analysis of the Extractive Industry in Kwale County with a Special Focus on Silica Sands, Mineral Sands (Titanium) and the Duruma Slates (Mazeras)

    Objective:

    The consultant will carry out a Value Chain Analysis of selected minerals in Kwale County, with a special focus on Silica Sands, Mineral Sands (Titanium) and the Duruma (Mazeras) Slates.

    The proposed study shall provide a comprehensive assessment of the different players, the opportunities, challenges and risks of the above mentioned value chains in Kwale County and beyond.

    Application Procedure

    Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications which should include the following:

  • UNDP Personal History Form (P11) Template provided
  • Detailed Curriculum Vitae
  • Proposal for implementing the assignment - Template provided

    Please quote the following references on the subject line “Supply Chain Analysis – National Level, Kwale and Kitui Counties“

    Applications should be emailed to consultants.ken@undp.org to reach us not later than Thursday 4 September 2014 at 12.00 Noon.

    Please see the Terms of Reference, the P11 form, the Individual Contract Proposal form and the Terms and Conditions of Individual Contracts by visiting the UNDP Kenya Website:UNDP Consultancy Jobs In Kenya

    ACTED launched its Kenya mission in January of 2008 with an emergency assistance program for residents in Nairobi slums affected by the post election violence.

    Since 2009, Nairobi has been the home base of ACTED’s relief operation in Southern Somalia aimed at supporting vulnerable famers affected by recurrent droughts.

    In 2010, ACTED’s mission in Kenya/Somalia sought to address the needs of pastoralist and farmer communities of North Central Kenya and South Somalia arising from multiple shocks such as adverse climatic conditions and disease outbreaks, through emergency food and non-food items distribution.

    ACTED is developing its programs in South Somalia, focusing on building capacity to respond to emergency outbreaks, as well as ensuring local populations are integrated into longer term projects aiming at improving their livelihoods. This will occur in the form of food, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and livelihood support to vulnerable agro-pastoral and riverine communities.

    Today, ACTED's teams and resources are mobilized on the front of dire needs in our areas of intervention in Somalia and Kenya, as well as other areas in the Horn of Africa.

    Position Profile

    In 2013, the Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) approved its GSC Strategy for the period 2013-2017.

    In order to advance the implementation of the GSC Strategy, and in particular its Strategic Aim 1, the GSC with funding support from ECHO has established Shelter Cluster Regional Focal Points (RFPs) hosted by cluster partner agencies as standby/surge capacity and support for country level cluster based preparedness planning and awareness raising.

    The RFPs are hosted by partner agencies and operate in close collaboration with global cluster leads, therefore contributing to strengthen capacities of the overall shelter sector.

    The GSC Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) agreed on a transparent process for the selection of partners to host RFPs.

    An open invitation was made to all cluster partners for expressions of interest to host these RFPs.

    As an active member of the GSC, ACTED sent an expression of interest to host the position of RFP – Africa Region, which was accepted by the GSC SAG based on pre-agreed criteria.

    The purpose of the Shelter Cluster Regional Focal Point (RFP) is to deliver emergency capacity building and preparedness support to national shelter clusters and national coordination platforms, with primary focus on building local capacities.

  • Provide technical support to on-going clusters and other coordination mechanisms at the regional and country level on shelter coordination and sector-based contingency planning.
  • Support the national cluster coordinators in the region in fulfilling the IASC and GSC guidance.

    This will be done in coordination with the GSC Support Team.

  • Support the government and shelter actors in selected high-risk countries where there is no existing shelter coordination capacity. The support will mainly include undertaking sector-based contingency planning and strengthening their capacity to respond to shelter emergencies,
  • Enhance shelter cluster planning and strategy development at regional and national levels, including the integration of cross-cutting issues.
  • Contribute to roll out the cluster approach and global guidance and tools to shelter coordination bodies, especially at national and sub-national levels.
  • Increase awareness of and participation in shelter clusters in the region of operation, particularly of local NGOs and other national stakeholders.
  • Complement the Global Shelter Cluster surge capacity system, by providing dedicated surge capacity as members of Shelter Coordination Teams when required.
  • Lead the organization of regional shelter coordination workshops and trainings and support the organization of national and global shelter coordination workshops and trainings.
  • Contribute to the development and implementation of global shelter coordination guidance and tools (Strategy, Fact Sheet, Performance Monitoring, amongst others), to the systematization of good practice in coordination mechanisms at country level, and to shelter cluster reviews and evaluations.
  • Provide content as relevant and regularly monitor the website (sheltercluster.org) at the global, regional and country level sites to provide inputs and additional documents as necessary.
  • Work in close collaboration with other RFPs, GSC Global Focal Points and the GSC Support Team to ensure consistency and learning across regions.

    Qualifications

  • Postgraduate diploma or relevant Master’s level degree (engineering)
  • Fluency in written and spoken English
  • A minimum of 3 years shelter/housing or rehabilitation programming experience

    ACTED launched its Kenya mission in January of 2008 with an emergency assistance program for residents in Nairobi slums affected by the post election violence. Since 2009, Nairobi has also been the home base of ACTED’s relief operation in Southern Somalia.

    In 2011, ACTED responded to the worst drought in Kenya in the past sixty years, providing vulnerable agro-pastoralists in Northern Kenya with emergency water and sanitation assistance, cash injections and destocking.

    ACTED facilitated dialogue and peace negotiations among and between conflicting communities, enabling pastoralists to peaceably access and share scarce water resources and pasture at the height of the crisis.

    Capacity-building and input support for agro-pastoralists in the beginning of the year sought to improve animal health and marketing, strengthen income-generating activities and aid in sustainable management of resources, protecting livelihoods from the impact of the drought and building community resilience.

    In 2012, ACTED remains poised to respond to emergency needs in Northern Kenya.

    Researcher Jobs in Nairobi Kenya - Amnesty International: In order to be effective, Amnesty International’s (AI) International Secretariat needs to adapt to that change. That’s why we’re opening a hub in Nairobi. And why we need your research expertise with us on the ground.

    About the role

    Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, East Africa, South Sudan – each of these regions faces a number of extreme human rights issues.

    Issues like a lack of freedom of expression and association, forced evictions, international injustice, as well as abuses in both the criminal justice system and armed conflict. In order to get the word out about these violations, we need expertly developed research and campaigning strategies.

    And in one of four region specific roles, that’s exactly what you’ll deliver. As well as developing bespoke research projects and strategies, you’ll lead, monitor, research and investigate into human rights developments yourself – both at your desk and in the field.

    Ready to lead assessments of crisis situations and able to prepare thorough security assessments and political briefings, you’ll work as part of a team to make sure our hub research function is as flexible as it is effective.

    You’ll also understand that building a strong contact network and representing AI externally are central to ensuring your research has impact, as is the credibility and accuracy of your reports.

    About you

    A tried-and-tested human rights researcher, you’ll have specialist knowledge of your specific region and thematic areas - either Kenya and Uganda, DRC and the Great Lakes Region, Sudan or South Sudan – plus a well-developed understanding of human rights issues and the political landscape in the sub-region.

    You’ll have proven your ability to write and adapt research materials for a range of audiences too, and be confident communicating AI’s message externally, both in English and, depending on your role, Kiswahili, French or Arabic too.

    In addition to your meticulous research skills and sharp political judgement, you’ll know how to engage with survivors of human rights abuses.

    You’ll be an effective multi-tasker able to meet deadlines and manage priorities, and know how to work effectively in a team. Crucially, you’ll have an unwavering committed to human rights.

    About us

    Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, freedom and truth wherever they’re denied.

    Already our network of over three million members and supporters is making a difference in 150 countries.

    And whether we’re applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we’re all inspired by hope for a better world.

    One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere.

    To strengthen its immediate response capacity in emergency situations, Internews’ Humanitarian Information Project (HIP) has created a standing roster of humanitarian communication experts and media professionals.

    In the event of a humanitarian disaster, this roster allows Internews to quickly assemble groundbreaking response teams that deliver professional, timely, reliable and well-targeted humanitarian communication solutions in the wake of humanitarian crises.

    These teams will deploy within 24-36 hours of a disaster to identify and assist the local information ecosystem, support local media and help humanitarian responders understand, assess and address the information and communication needs of disaster affected communities.

    Experienced and highly motivated individuals who understand the complex nature of humanitarian disasters and can enter those situations with a good sense of calm, resilience and humor are encouraged to apply to be part of the Internews Humanitarian Media Roster.
