    ILRI Graduate Fellowships – PhD Students in Gender and Nutrition

    Project: Feed the Future Sustainable Intensification Innovation Lab (SIIL) – ILRI sub-award on Sustainable intensification through better integration of crop and livestock production systems for improved food security and environmental benefits in Sahelian zone of Burkina Faso.

    General:

    The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI, www.ilri.org) works at the crossroads of livestock and poverty, bringing high-quality livestock science, communications and capacity building to bear on poverty reduction and sustainable development. ILRI is one of 15 Centers of the CGIAR Consortium, a global agricultural research partnership for a food-secure future (www.cgiar.org).

    The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Sustainable Intensification (SIIL; https://www.k-state.edu/siil/index.html), led by Kansas State University, supports the US Government Feed the Future goals of reducing global hunger, poverty and undernutrition.

    One of the key components of the SIIL Burkina Faso project on sustainable intensification of mixed crop-livestock systems for improved food security and environmental benefits is to better understand how intensification interventions affect gender equity and household nutrition.

    The main outcome of gender and nutrition components of the project is to strengthen women’s decision-making capacity on improved intensification options and to increase household consumption of commonly-available nutritious foods to supplement the current grain-dominated diets within the study areas.

    To achieve this outcome, project interventions to improve household nutrition include increasing household consumption of milk, cowpea grain (often referred to as “poor man’s meat in the Sahel) and Moringa leaves.

    The guiding principle of these interventions to intensify production to improve nutrition is that they are sensitive to gender divisions of labor demands and gender equity with respect to nutritional benefits.

    The Position:

    The PhD student will work on the effect of sustainable intensification of crop-livestock systems on gender equity and household nutrition in the Sahelian zone of Burkina Faso. The overall objective of this PhD research is to evaluate the effects of the improved intensification options on gender equity and household nutrition.

    The specific objectives are:

    (i) To analyze the roles, constraints and preferences of men, women and youth, and the marginalized groups in crop-livestock production in the study sites;

    (ii) To characterize nutrition practices of the households in the study areas and quantify gender-differentiated control over the benefits of on- and off-farm activities;

    (iii) To assess the effect of improved intensification options on intra-household division of labor and on the distribution of nutritional benefits within households.

    The underlying hypothesis is that productivity enhancing intensification options will lead to improvement of household food security and nutrition thereby enhancing gender equity. The PhD research work will be conducted in the project sites in Dori and Ouahigouya in Burkina Faso.

    Key responsibilities:

  • Conduct baseline characterization of gender roles in intensification of crop-livestock systems including constraints and opportunities, household nutritional practices and dietary diversity, and gender-differentiated intra-household diet diversity.
  • Carry out in-depth study on the effects of improved intensification options on gender, specifically on access to the improved intensification options, power, labour implications, decision making and benefit sharing from improved intensification options.
  • Carry out in-depth study on the effects of improved intensification options, specifically nutrition interventions on household dietary diversity and anthropometric measurements of children in selected households.
  • Quantification of different development pathways of gender equity and household nutrition for households along the intensification ladder/gradient.
  • Contribute to SIIL Burkina Faso project reports particularly on gender and nutrition

    Requirements and Qualifications:

    The ideal candidate should:

  • Be registered as a PhD student at a University in social science, agricultural science or relevant disciplines;
  • Having necessary academic background in gender and nutrition or related disciplines;
  • Willingness to work and live in rural areas of Burkina Faso;
  • Ability to work in a team and with smallholder farmers;
  • Ability to interact effectively in a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary environment;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English. Ability to speak and read in French will be an advantage.

    Location: Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

    Duration: 3 years

    Terms of appointment and stipend:

    The successful candidate will be supervised jointly by ILRI scientist and the university supervisor. While at ILRI, he or she will also have access to other ILRI researchers so as to develop his or her research.

    ILRI will provide a monthly stipend of US$1,000 to the successful candidate, economy return air ticket to Ouagadougou, as well as insurance. ILRI will cover all the research costs related to the student field activities. ILRI does not cover university related fees such as tuitions, living allowances etc.

    How to apply: Interested candidates should submit online through our recruitment portal http://ilri.simplicant.com/ on or before 30 July 2016 or until a suitable candidate is selected. The following documents should be included in the online application:

  • A Curriculum Vitae including three references with contact information.
  • A cover letter describing the candidate’s interests in and qualifications for carrying out the research, referring to the candidate’s Curriculum Vitae as fitting, and highlighting any particularly relevant qualifications.
  • A letter from your university attesting your student status.
  • The above materials will be evaluated and a select number of candidates will be invited for an interview and be asked to submit letters of support from referees, and academic transcripts.

    We thank all applicants for their interest in working for ILRI. Due to the volume of applications, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

    Médecins du Monde Participative Health System Diagnosis and Programing Consultancy in Bosaso, Somalia

    Bosaso District, Participative Health System Diagnosis and Programing

    Terms of Reference

    Title: Assessment of the health system with a focus on sexual and reproductive health department and proposed intervention strategy in collaboration with the MoH in Bosaso, Somalia

    Origins of Request

    Médecins du Monde (MdM) is an international humanitarian organization whose mission is: to provide medical care for the most vulnerable populations when they are faced with crisis or exclusion from society, the world over, including France, to stimulate voluntary commitment from doctors, other health care providers, and from those whose expertise in other fields is needed for its activities, to enlist all competent support required for the achievement of its projects, to seek at all times to encourage close working relationships with populations in its care.

    Somalia is most widely known for its political instability and chronic health crises. Because of extended periods of conflict and instability, Somalia has become the quintessential fragile state. As a result of this prolonged fragility, existing health infrastructures have been destroyed and effective institutional investment in quality health services has been prevented.

    This breakdown of health service provision is a symptom of a dysfunctional health system, which is in turn characterized by poor infrastructure; an inability of governments to deliver services; an absence of equity, incoherent, or non-existent policies; a scarcity of actionable information; and poor management.

    These characteristics have meant that, in many regions of Somalia, health services are largely non-existent, exposing an already vulnerable population.

    Throughout the years of fragmentation and near total collapse, various efforts have been undertaken in a bid to reconstruct a functioning and dynamic health system. The recent Joint Health and Nutrition Programme (JHNP) is one such effort.

    Somalia is divided into three administrative regions— Somaliland in the northwest, south-central regions, and Puntland state in the northeast.

    The goal of MdM in the region of Puntland in Somalia is to strengthen health care services to the civilian and internal displaced people’s (IDP’s) in Bosaso with a specific focus on sexual and reproductive health, Puntland.

    During the Health System Strengthening (HSS) workshop conducted by WHO (World Health Organization) in August 2015 and afterward during the Ministry of Health (MoH) annual review meeting, the needs of decentralization of the MoH health services has been recognized as a major priority.

    Indeed, MdM intervention takes place in a fragile health system, continuously struggling to operate effectively and to deliver accessible standard quality care.

    Therefore, in 2016, Somalia MdM project proposed to support a health system strengthening analysis and programming in Bosaso town (Puntland), after discussion with regional health office of Bari region.

    The main objective of this diagnosis is to identify what are the main strengths and weaknesses at of Bosaso district health system in relation to the 6 blocks of the health system

    A specific diagnosis of Bosaso district health system will be instrumental in providing clear information on the main challenges to the MOH and decision makers.

    The health system strengthening is also a prerequisite to a sustainable integration of specific sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence services and migrant’s reception into the public health system, as transversal issues.

    CLICK HERE for a detailed terms of reference

    How to Apply

    Applications must be received by Sunday 26th of June 2016.

    MdM will communicate its final decision not later than Friday 1st of July 2016.

    2. ILRI Consultancy: Community Rangeland Monitoring Methodology Development International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a consultant within Accelerated Value Chain Development – Livestock Component (AVCD-LC) project. The consultant will be an individual, consortium or firm with combined experience in rangeland management and ecology, participatory approaches, and capacity building and/or development of training and curriculum materials.

    ILRI works with partners worldwide to enhance the roles that livestock play in food security and poverty alleviation, principally in Africa and Asia. The outcomes of these research partnerships help people in developing countries keep their farm animals’ alive and productive, increase and sustain their livestock and farm productivity, find profitable markets for their animal products, and reduce the risk of livestock-related diseases.

    ILRI is a not-for-profit institution with a staff of about 700 and in 2016, an operating budget of about USD83 million. A member of the CGIAR Consortium working for a food-secure future, ILRI has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, a principal campus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and offices in other countries in East, West and Southern Africa and in South, Southeast and East Asia.

    The position: (1)General background The AVCD-LC project is led by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in five counties in northern Kenya (Garissa, Isiolo, Marsabit, Turkana and Wajir) and is funded by USAID as part of Feed the Future, the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative. In AVCD-LC, improved rangeland management is understood as key pillar of improving livestock value chains in these counties. Across northern Kenya various approaches to participatory and community rangeland management are being implemented. Within some of these initiatives, methods for monitoring of rangeland condition are being attempted with varying degrees of success. In most, however, little to no formal monitoring takes place.

    As part of this, AVCD-LC is providing technical support to two USAID-funded projects/organisations – Northern Rangelands Trust and The Resilience and Economic Growth in Arid Lands – Improving Resilience (REGAL-IR) – both projects with strong NRM/rangeland management components working in pastoral areas. As part of this AVCD-LC is expected to provide support on rangeland monitoring.

    AVCD-LC is developing a toolkit on rangeland management for use by county governments. This toolkit will include a component on rangeland monitoring. The consultant will contribute to the development of the toolkit with methods and tools that are appropriate for county-level monitoring of rangelands including that which draws from the knowledge and experiences of communities.

    Objective of the assignment (i)The goal of this consultancy is to develop methods and an overarching methodological framework for participatory rangeland monitoring for inclusion in the AVCD-LC toolkit on rangeland management.

    Specific objectives are as follows:

  • To review the approaches used by REGAL-IR and NRT for rangeland monitoring, and with them identify bottlenecks/challenges to the implementation of this monitoring, and how it can be improved.
  • To review ways in which communities in REGAL-IR and NRT project areas currently monitor rangelands (including rangeland condition and health, and changes in this); as well as what this monitoring means for decisions that they make about rangeland use, what challenges they face in implementing these decisions, why these challenges exist and how could these challenges be overcome.
  • To adapt and improve existing tools and methods if necessary develop new simple tools for improved and consistently sustained participatory rangeland monitoring.
  • To assist NRT and REGAL-IR to test these improved methods and tools in AVCD-LC project areas.
  • To contribute to the county-level Toolkit for Rangeland Management with a section (overarching framework) on participatory rangeland monitoring and practical guiding worksheets (tools, checklists).

    Final Products.

  • A study report on what selected communities (in the project areas) monitor in rangelands, how, when, where and why; and on range monitoring approaches used by NRT, REGAL-IR and county governments, the bottlenecks and challenges that they face in implementing these. The report should include recommendations (based on the review of monitoring approaches used and on experiences from elsewhere, etc.) of how these bottlenecks and challenges can be overcome and the approaches improved. The report should conclude with an outline of the agreed-upon improved approaches, which will then be tested with the relevant organisation(s) involved.
  • A draft of the worksheets, checklists and other tools to be included in the toolkit.
  • A short final report of the testing of the approaches and tools with final recommendations.
  • A final draft of the Toolkit section on rangeland monitoring written for a county-expert level practical toolkit on rangeland management and at least four (4) practical guiding worksheets on different good practice rangeland monitoring processes or tools.

    Essential Skills and Qualifications will include:

  • PhD in Ecology, rangeland management, or related field, or equivalent long term field experience.
  • Experience in rangeland management and ecology, participatory approaches, and capacity building and/or development of training and curriculum materials, evidence having done similar work, practical experience in development/natural resources management (NRM) assignments.
  • Fluent spoken and written English. Ki-Swahili and/or northern Kenya languages would be an asset. Post location: Kenya

    Duration: From approximately 27th June 2016 to 31 December 2016 with a maximum number of 40 working days.

    Expected places of travel: Garissa, Isiolo, Marsabit, Turkana and/or Wajir Applications: How to apply:

    Applicants should send a cover letter and CV explaining their interest in the position, what they can bring to the job and the names and addresses (including telephone and email) of three referees who are knowledgeable about the candidate’s professional qualifications and work experience to the Director, People and Organizational Development through our recruitment portalrecruitment portalon or before 21 June 2016.

    M-KOPA Solar Delivery Manager (Hardware / Electronics Engineering) Job in Kenya

    M-KOPA is seeking:

    Position Title: Delivery Manager – Hardware / Electronics Engineering

    Location: Nairobi, Kenya

    Position Start: As soon As Possible

    Reporting to: Matrix reporting

    Reports to HOD Engineering on Technology

    Reports to COO on Delivery Management

    About M-KOPA Solar: M-KOPA Solar, headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, is the global leader of "pay-as-you-go" energy for off-grid customers.

    Since its commercial launch in October 2012, M-KOPA has connected more than 350,000 homes in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to solar power, and is now adding over 500 new homes each day.

    The success of M-KOPA (M= mobile, KOPA= to borrow) stems from making solar products affordable to low-income households on a pay-per-use installment plan.

    Customers acquire solar systems for a small deposit and then purchase daily usage "credits" for Kshs 50, or less than the price of traditional kerosene lighting. After one year of payments customers own their solar systems outright and can upgrade to more power.

    All revenues are collected in real-time via mobile money systems (such as M-PESA in Kenya) and embedded GSM sensors in each solar system allow M-KOPA to monitor real time performance and regulate usage based upon payments.

    This connected design means that M-KOPA is processing vast amounts of data (i.e. over 10,000 mobile payments per day) via the company's proprietary cloud platform, M-KOPAnet.

    As of January 2016 M-KOPA employs over 700 full time staff across East Africa and sells through a network of over 1,000 direct sales agents. It has also commenced licensing its technology to partners in other markets.

    M-KOPA has been recognized for its pioneering business mode and scale, notably winning the 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize, being selected as the top New Energy Pioneer at the 2014 Bloomberg New Energy Finance awards and earning the 2013 FT/IFC Excellence in Sustainable Finance Award.

    M-KOPA has also successfully tested a range of new products that leverage its relationship with customers, and M-KOPA’s unique competencies in mobile telecommunications and ICT.

    To ensure that the research and development of new products add value to (and do not distract from) its core business, M-KOPA is establishing the M-KOPA Labs.

    2. Norwegian Refugee Council Consultancy: Evaluation of WASH Programme in Dadaab Refugee Camps in Kenya

    Norwegian Refugee Council

    Consultancy - Evaluation of WASH Programme in Dadaab Refugee Camps - Kenya

    Ref. No: 3102028926

    NRC Evaluation Terms of Reference

    Country: Kenya

    Duration: 5 weeks

    Reporting to: The Evaluation Steering Committee

    1. Background Information

    Background on the Conflict / Context

    Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya was established in the year 1991 to settle refugees who were displaced following the inter-clan conflicts that broke out in Somalia.

    In 2011, a devastating famine caused by prolonged drought in the Horn of Africa region resulted to displacements and influxes of more than 160,000 refugees from Somalia into the Dadaab camps.

    Consequently, the displaced population increased over the years from the initial total of 90,000 refugees to 343,884[1] refugees, residing in the five Dadaab camps; Hagadera, Dagahaley, Ifo, Kambioos and Ifo 2.

    Background on the thematic area in this context (e.g. not NRC intervention specific but for example the WASH situation in the country)

    NRC is currently the lead WASH partner for UNHCR providing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene promotion to the refugees living in Hagadera and Kambioos camps.

    In Hagadera camp, NRC started implementing WASH programme in April 2012 after handover by CARE and water supply component in January 2013 after handover by Oxfam in Kambioos.

    Meanwhile, implementation of Sanitation and Hygiene promotion activities in Kambioos camp commenced in June 2014.

    The old and dilapidated water reticulation system required constant repair and maintenance in order to maintain the minimum SPHERE and UNHCR standards on water supply.

    Currently; NRC operates 9 boreholes of which 7 are now operating on solar-diesel hybrid water pumping systems, 10 elevated storage tanks where 8 are 100m3 capacity each, 1 is 150m3 and another is 250m3, and other ground storage tanks, and the entire water reticulation systems in both camps.

    The average water per capita was maintained at 23.1l as at end of May 2016.

    The sanitation standards among the target population still remain a challenge despite significant improvements over the years.

    Latrine census conducted in July 2015 by NRC indicated that 8 persons shared 1 latrine (1:8) which is below the locally recommended standards of 1:5.

    48% of the total households did not have a latrine, while 13% of the existing latrines were filled up and not functional.

    Access to latrines in the schools within the camps has been a challenge, with low latrine coverage due the high school enrolment.

    Crude method of solid waste disposal within the refugee camps is another major challenge that poses a great risk to Public health.

    The outbreak of a Cholera epidemic in the Dadaab camps in November 2015 following the long rains has resulted to increased and critical WASH needs, requiring robust response to address them, especially the Sanitation and hygiene situations.

    By 25th May 2016, a total of 1,793 patients have been line-listed for Cholera treatment at the Hospitals in Dadaab.

    A total of 14 deaths have been reported from all the 5 Dadaab refugee camps.

    NRC’s Presence and Activities in the Country

    The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has been in operation in Dadaab since 2007 under the NRC Horn of Africa, Uganda, South Sudan and Yemen mission which currently covers 8 countries.

    NRC has been implementing different projects in all the 5 Dadaab camps under its 5 core competencies:
    Shelter; Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH); Education; Food Security; and Information Counselling and Legal Assistance (Voluntary Repatriation services).

    Following the scale up of the WASH programme in Hagadera and Kambioos camps from 2012, NRC is the lead agency responsible for the provision of WASH services in the two camps, reaching a total population of 124,666 persons (UNHCR data, April 2016).

    The WASH projects have been funded by the UNHCR, ECHO, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA), BPRM, SIDA and UNICEF.

    Over the years, NRC has been working closely and in coordination with UNHCR and other humanitarian agencies in providing basic and life-saving services to the refugees and host community.

    Since the onset of the cholera outbreak on 18th November 2015, NRC has responded extensively to the crisis with the effort to contain the outbreak in Dadaab, specifically focusing on Hagadera and Kambioos camps,
    in close coordination and collaboration with UNHCR, UNICEF, Department for Refugees Affairs (DRA), IRC and other WASH actors, government line Ministries, and the affected populations.

    Outside of Dadaab (Garissa County), NRC runs similar projects in the Kakuma (XX County) targeting refugees mainly from South Sudan and in Mandera (YYY County) targeting mainly internally displaced persons (IDPs).

    The Dadaab operation remains the biggest of NRC’s operations in Kenya.

    NRC’s Intervention (related to the core competency to be evaluated)

    NRC has been implementing a full package of water supply, sanitation (including solid waste management),
    and hygiene promotion activities in the two camps – Hagadera and Kambioos, while working as the implementing partner of UNHCR.

    The overall objective of the WASH programme is to ensure that people affected by displacement, including vulnerable persons have improved public health status and living conditions, by ensuring that supply of potable water to the refugees is increased and maintained, and that the refugees live in satisfactory conditions of sanitation and hygiene.

    These are the specific objectives agreed on by UNHCR and WASH actors in Dadaab.

    The specific project to be evaluated

    In 2016, NRC has planned to carry out an evaluation of the Dadaab WASH programme in order to assess the progress towards achieving the overall objective, which is in line with the NRC Kenya WASH strategy.

    NRC has been conducting baseline and technical assessments, and knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) surveys over the years,

    and has internal monitoring mechanisms such as the KAP surveys, Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM), weekly monitoring of field activities, and regular meetings, including technical review meetings.

    Therefore, the planned evaluation will build upon existing internal M&E information.

  • Determine the level of progress towards achieving the overall goal of the WASH programme, as per the NRC Kenya WASH Strategy.

    Address the following key questions;

  • Has NRC been able to reach the right people through the WASH programme?
  • Were the interventions relevant to the achievement of the overall WASH goal?
  • Was NRC able to address the basic and life-saving needs of the target group, in line with agreed strategies and as per the internationally recognized and recommended standards?
  • If any, how has the WASH programme contributed to durable solutions for the refugees in Dadaab camps?
  • How well were the interventions coordinated?
  • Were there constraints, if any, encountered towards achieving better effectiveness within the programme and how well were they mitigated?
  • What evidence is there (if any) that learning (M&E) from previous WASH projects were incorporated into the implementation strategies?

    Determine and document the level of preparedness and the extent to which NRC responded to cholera outbreaks in Dadaab camps, including the most recent the ongoing cholera outbreak.

  • How were NRC’s interventions coordinated with other actors?
  • What key lessons learnt that could be utilized to help improve NRC’s preparedness and response towards similar crisis in the future?
  • Identify and document innovations, best practices and areas of learning opportunities.

    The evaluator shall compile the findings and recommendations or options that could be utilized by NRC for purpose of upscaling and improving the quality of the WASH programme and potential future projects in related fields, through addressing questions such as:

  • What are the positive aspects and how can we can build on these in the future?
  • What are the negative aspects we should avoid or improve on?
  • What could be the solutions to those problems?

    Furthermore, the evaluator will be expected to provide constructive and detailed propositions for innovative approaches in response to the findings of the evaluation.

    The consultant will provide a 1 to 2 pager infographic (facts, what’s good, what’s not so good & recommendations) each for Hagadera and Kambioos camps to be shared along with the final report.

    This will serve as a visual summary of the evaluation report.

    The evaluation findings and recommendations shall be utilized by NRC for improving the quality of its ongoing WASH programme in Dadaab.

    3. Scope of Work and Lines of Inquiry

    Evaluation Scope:

    The evaluation work shall be carried out in Hagadera and Kambioos refugee camps, covering the period between April 2012 and June 2016.

    Call for expression of Interest - Presentations for 4th Annual International Humanitarian Partnership Conference 2016 Jobs in Nairobi Kenya

    Closing date: 30th June 2016

    Call for Presentations

    4th Annual International Humanitarian Partnership Conference 2016 –Nairobi Kenya 21st -22nd Sept 2016 at the Boma Hotel Nairobi

    Theme: Disability and Age Inclusion in Humanitarian Practice: Scaling up progress toward the achievement of Agenda 2030

    Background

    The Humanitarian Partnership Conference (HPC) is an annual conference championed by the Humanitarian Learning and Partnerships (HLP) sub group under the Inter Agency Working Group on Disaster Preparedness for East & Central Africa (IAWG).

    The IAWG was established following discussions during the OCHA Regional Contingency Planning exercise in June 2002.

    It was formed to enhance information sharing for humanitarian workers in the larger East and Central African region.

    Humanitarian practitioners, academicians and age and disability champions in Africa and the world over will be attending the 4th Humanitarian Partnership Conference (HPC) in Nairobi, Kenya on 14th and 15th September 2016 at the Boma Hotel owned by the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS).

    The venue was seen to be ideal as it is considered accessible to older persons and persons with disabilities as well as a novel best practice case of how KRCS is using local social enterprise to meet the ever increasing humanitarian needs in Kenya sustainably.

    The first conference was held in 2013 and it was hosted by University of Nairobi, the (IAWG) and Enhancing Learning and Research for Humanitarian Assistance (ELRHA) which is hosted by Save the Children.

    The second conference held in 2014 at Boma Hotel Nairobi and was a great success attracting participants from Asia, North America, Europe and Africa.

    HPC 2014 sessions focused on the 5 themes of the World Humanitarian Summit on Sustainable Pastoralism Development, Addressing the Education Needs for Humanitarians, Serving the Needs of People in Conflict, Reducing Vulnerability to Climatic Shocks, and Humanitarian Effectiveness.

    The 3rd conference which had the theme of “incorporating private sector in emergency response” was equally a resounding success as for the first time, the academia, private sector and humanitarian practitioners held tripartite consultations and sharing of experiences.

    Rationale for the conference theme

  • According to the 2011 World Report on Disability by the World Health Organisation/World Bank, there are an estimated 1 billion persons with disabilities worldwide. This is about 15% of the world’s population.
  • Globally, one in eight people are over the age of 60. By 2050, the number of older people is expected to increase to two billion, or more than one fifth of the global population.
  • In conflicts and natural disasters, the risk of acquiring disability increases due to injuries, poor health care and failure to manage non-communicable diseases among other causes. Older people and people with disabilities, therefore, make up a significant and growing proportion of disaster-affected populations, yet they continue to face neglect in disaster preparedness as well as disaster response.

    It is for this reason that the theme the theme for the HPC 2016 shall be: Disability and Age Inclusion in Humanitarian Practice: Scaling up inclusive practices toward the achievement of Agenda 2030.

    Objectives of the Conference:

    By the end of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the concepts of disability, age and gender and their application in humanitarian action.
  • Have the knowhow on how to adopt minimum standards for age and disability inclusion in their humanitarian action.
  • Share good practices around disability, age and gender inclusion in disaster preparedness and emergency response.
  • Enhance networking by creating a community of practice for continuous sharing of learning.
  • Activities during the conference

    In order to achieve the objectives of the conference, the following activities shall be carried out during the conference.

    Plenary sessions

  • Panel discussions.
  • Break-away sessions. Poster/Photo exhibitions.
  • Outdoor exhibitions.
  • Cocktail/networking session.
