    Nigeria – Head of Mission

    Job from Solidarités International Closing date: 01 Oct 2016

    Locations: Abuja, Maiduguri [if possible, accessible areas of the north-western states

    (Yobe, Borno, Adamawa, Gombe)]

    Starting date: 15/07/2016

    Duration: 2 months

    Background of the mission

    Following several alerts raised in 2015 by Action Against Hunger (ACF) and Doctors without Borders (MSF), SI has been considering for the last 5 months a further intervention in Nigeria, and specifically in the north-western states (Yobe, Borno, Adamawa, Gombe), impacted by the presence of Boko Haram and by the fighting between this non-state armed group (NSAG) and the Nigerian military forces.

    Following a desk review period of 2 months, the emergency desk has sent a team composed of three persons (one head of mission, one WASH coordinator, one logistician) for a 20 days exploratory mission in Abuja and in Maiduguri.

    The scope of this mission was to establish contact with all relevant stakeholders, launch the registration process and determine how and through which angle it would be relevant and feasible for SI to open a mission.

    The conclusion of the exploration was that it would be relevant for SI to open a mission in Nigeria: the uncovered needs are high, the security situation slightly improved as well as the access, the funding is not yet available but should be in the future and there is a clear added value of having an emergency oriented NGO such as SI in this context.

    Context

    - A political crisis

    Boko Haram, the Nigerian jihadist group affiliated to Daesh, has since March 2015th lost some ground and battles against the Nigerian army. However the number of terrorists attacks (in public places such as market) has increased.

    According to the Global Terrorism Index, in 2014 the organization was on the top of the list of the terrorists groups that caused the highest number of death worldwide: 6644 in one year against 6073 for Daesh.

    - Internally Displaced People

    In six years of conflict with brutal attacks on the civilian population in north-eastern Nigeria, over 20 000 people have been killed and 2.2 million are displaced within the country. 91%, of the total number of internally displaced people (IDPs) are living in the North-East. The main reason for displacement cited by 89% of the IDPs is the conflict.

    In the state capitals, the IDPs are living in the camps (8% of the total displaced population); however, the majority is in host communities (92%) where they are receiving limited or no assistance

    - An extensive access issue

    The armed conflict has affected civilians already living in precarious conditions and undermined poverty reduction and development efforts. While some internally displaced people (IDPs) live outside the four states of focus, these states, Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe, have been disproportionally affected by the crisis and are prioritized and referred to collectively here as north-east.

    The recent opening of direct UNHAS flights between these 4 states’ capitals broadened the humanitarian coverage. However, the response remains centralized in IDP camps and urban center only.

    Objectives of the mission

    · Manage a team of 2 to 3 assessment managers

    · Ensure a follow up of political and socio economic context evolutions related to the conflict in North Eastern states.

    · Follow up of humanitarian context evolution: access, gaps in the response, evolution of the humanitarian response (partners, coverage, methodologies…)

    · Reinforce and detail the operational strategy of SI such as designed by the first exploratory team

    · Lead the multi-sectorial assessment of needs in Maiduguri neighborhoods and potentially out of Maiduguri in IDPs settlements of main Borno cities. Contribute to the report drafting.

    · Lead the proposal making process and liaise with donors in that regard

    · Design SI security strategy and rules for an intervention in Maiduguri neighborhoods and outside of Maiduguri.

    · Ensure SI visibility in all relevant coordination platforms and liaise bilaterally with all relevant partners, such as proposed by first exploratory team.

    · Follow up the registration process and ensure the liaison with the federal and state authorities

    · Contribute to the identification of local partner(s) and design the modalities and framework of the partnership

    · Potentially prepare the opening of SI mission: sizing staff and logistics, requesting support from HQ, logistics, HR and administrative preparations.

    Deliverables

    Hereunder is the list of final documents expected from the team:

    · Assessment report

    · Project proposal draft

    · Security plan draft

    · Pack of documents for briefing of next teams

    · Situation report on a rolling basis

    Abuja Living Conditions

    Abuja is the federal capital of Nigeria. It is located in the center of Nigeria in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Climate is classified as tropical wet and dry with a warm rainy season from April to October and a hot dry season between November and March.

    Accommodation in Abuja is in hotel with internet access, restaurant, AC, hot water and laundry service. There is no office for the moment, but work can be done from the hotel or in one of the several quiet bars with internet access present in town.

    The level of security threat is very limited in Abuja and the city does not experience the same issues than other Nigerian urban areas. Main risks are road accident, due to driving fast and not very disciplined, and malaria. Criminality is very low and expatriate community is not identified as a specific target.

    Humanitarian sector being small in Abuja, humanitarian expatriate life is limited, but on the other hand, external social life can be very pleasant thanks to the low security threat and the presence of several restaurants, bars, parks, clubs, gym and pools.

    We offer

    SI will offer you:

    A salaried post: according to experience from 2300 euros gross per month, plus 10% annual leave allowance paid monthly, and a monthly Per Diem of 750 USD.

    Social and medical cover: Expatriates benefit from an insurance package which reimburses all healthcare expenses (including medical and surgical expenses, dental care and ophthalmological expenses, repatriation) and a welfare system including war risks. Essential vaccination and antimalarial treatment costs are refunded.

    ILRI Graduate Fellowship: Greening Livestock MSc Fellowship

    ILRI Graduate Fellowship: Greening Livestock MSc Fellowship

    The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit an MSc student for interdisciplinary natural and social science research under an IFAD-funded project entitled “Greening livestock: incentive-based climate-smart agriculture interventions for reducing the climate impact of livestock in East Africa”.

    The Project focuses on identifying the conditions that enable and constrain East African dairy producers in adopting climate smart agriculture practices. The current position will categorize existing manure management practices in Bomet county using farmer surveys, and work towards developing county-wide estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock manure as well as identify potential mitigation practices that also improve dairy production in smallholder systems. The student is expected to work within a coherent conceptual and methodological framework, to be developed in conjunction with ILRI supervisors.

    The International Livestock Research Institute (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 USD 83 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.

    Background

    Dietary changes and growing populations in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are leading to major increases in demand for livestock products. In East Africa, livestock is a major source of rural income and food security. Livestock production provides between 40 and 55% of household incomes and 26% of protein intake in diets. Across East Africa, livestock production is predominantly managed by smallholder farmers with dairy representing the most important end-market.

    In mixed crop-livestock systems, half of the agricultural workforce is employed in livestock production; in extensive dryland livestock systems this figure exceeds 90%. Thus, growth in demand for livestock products is an important opportunity to improve incomes for smallholder livestock producers.

    In low income countries, such as those in East Africa, however livestock is a major source of GHG emissions. It is estimated that livestock-related GHG emissions represent over 80% of total agriculture emissions and 12% of total anthropogenic emissions. The increasing growth in demand for livestock products is an urgent concern as this in turn could result in increased GHG emissions.

    Implementing mechanisms to remunerate smallholders to increase productivity while reducing GHG emissions intensities requires national policy support and engagement of the private sector. Currently, the development of Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) is increasingly prioritized by East African governments and donors, and the livestock sector is a promising target given their high emissions contributions and vital role in household incomes and food security.

    However, the lack of reliable estimates on GHG emissions associated to different practices and productivity levels for different systems is a barrier to the implementation of LEDS. The Project aims to generate evidence that can be used by both public or private sector organizations and platforms to identify appropriate incentive mechanisms and in the implementation, monitoring, reporting and verification for LEDS that include the livestock sector.

    Because of the potential to sequester carbon and the need to address land degradation in the region, this effort will be supported by land rehabilitation initiatives and investments in improved forest management practices. Kenya is a leader amongst East African countries in this area.

    Scope of the MSc assignment

    The MSc student will directly contribute to Component 1 of the Project entitled “Baseline and identification of promising Climate Smart Agriculture interventions”. Component 1 aims to identify viable interventions to mitigate GHG emissions while also enhancing the productivity and sustainability of dairy production systems. The MSc student will contribute to this by undertaking the following research activities:

  • Categorize the manure management systems currently used in Bomet County and using existing emission factors (EF) of the different systems, estimate the baseline emissions from manure for the county.
  • Analysis of smallholder manure management practices by conducting surveys and focus group discussions, with emphasis on identifying social, technical, and economic barriers to adoption of best climate smart practices faced by different types of smallholders.
  • Identification of socially and economically viable options that take into account the identified barriers to adoption and estimation of the mitigation value of these options.

    Qualifications and skills

    The ideal candidate will have:

  • Obtained a Bachelor’s degree in geography, agriculture, development studies or other relevant biophysical science discipline.
  • Enrolled in an accredited MSc program and be near completion of coursework.
  • Experience in East Africa and/or with smallholder dairy production systems in developing countries.
  • Strong conceptual skills for comparative cross-scale political economy research.
  • Familiarity with statistical software such as SPSS or R.
  • Ability to supervise and train research assistants and provide necessary quality control.
  • Excellent written and spoken English. Ability to converse in Kiswahili or Kalenjin is also a major asset.
  • Ability to effectively communicate in a multicultural context, present findings to diverse audiences, and support facilitation of multi-stakeholder workshops.
  • Ability to collaborate with social scientists in an interdisciplinary team project.
  • The MSc fellowship offers a one year stipend and operating budget, but will not cover coursework, university fees, etc. The ideal candidate will be able to develop a full proposal and begin fieldwork by January 2017.

    How to apply:

    Interested applicants should submit the following documents;

  • 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 to the Director, People and Organizational Development.

    The position title and reference number: MSC/CDU/07/2016 should be clearly indicated in the subject line of the cover letter.

    All applications to be submitted online through our Recruitment Portal on or before 30 August 2016

    Nigeria - A Field Coordinator in Maiduguri

    Job from Première Urgence - Aide Médicale Internationale Closing date: 31 Aug 2016

    Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs.

    Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency.

    The association leads in average 140 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 4 million people in 22 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Caucasus and Europe.

    Humanitarian situation and needs

    With the biggest population in Africa, (between 178.000.000 and 200.000.000 habitants), Nigeria is ranked as the first economy in Africa thanks to oil and petroleum products as well as mineral resources (gold, iron, diamonds, copper etc…). Despite a strong economy, Nigeria suffers from huge inequalities between rich and poors, and from a high rate of corruption, at every level.

    In 2015, presidential elections were held and led to the election of Muhammad Buhari (former military) to replace Goodluck Jonathan. During the first months of his election, he has shown particular efforts to get progressively rid of corruption, and has officially announced that he would stop Boko Haram from harming people.

    Boko Haram (meaning Western education is forbidden/ is a sin) and recently renamed Islamic State in Western Africa after it pledged allegiance to the group Islamic State, is a Sunni terrorist and jihadist group seeking to create a Kalifate in western Africa ruled by the sharia law.

    Created in 2002 by Mohamed Yusuf in Maiduguri (State of Borno), the group has been carrying out armed attacks on civilian populations since 2011. However, the group was already at war with the national security forces in Nigeria, since 2004 with a high peak of the crisis in 2009.

    From 2013, Boko Haram exported its action abroad, in Cameroon, Chad and Niger and was linked to a number of attacks kidnapping, particularly in Northern Cameroon. The intensification of conflict in north east states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe has inevitably resulted in the displacement of people across the troubled states.

    A regional force made up of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon launched a military offensive against Boko Haram in early 2015 and resulted in significant territorial losses for the insurgent group. By April 2015, Boko Haram had lost all its held territories except its stronghold in the Sambisa forest in Borno state (Reuters, 05/05/2015).

    The territorial gains by regional forces have prompted Boko Haram to revert to guerrilla tactics including village raids, abductions, bombings, and suicide attacks, increasingly targeting civilians – also in areas not previously targeted.

    At the end of the year 2015, Boko Haram has been responsible for the deaths of 11,000 people, becoming the world’s deadliest terrorist group before the Group Islamic State.

    OCHA estimates that about 14,8 million people are affected by the Boko Haram Crisis in the North Eastern States of Nigeria.

    Violence and armed conflict have worsen the situation of a civilians already living in precarious conditions and undermined the development efforts to reduce poverty, strained the States resources and exhausted the community coping capacities. This 6-years Crisis also put at risk inter-community, inter-ethnic and inter-religious coexistence.

    As of today, 2,3 million IDPS have been registered in Nigeria, and with no access to most areas of Borno State it is estimated that IDPs should in fact be around 3 million.

    If some of the IDPs have sought refuge outside the North East, Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe States have been the most affected by the crisis. From the affected population, it estimated that 7 million people (with no consideration of status) are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.

    As of today, 70% of the registered IDPs (about 1.7 million) are settled in Maiduguri city which already counts 2.5 million people. 90% of the IDPs are located in host communities.

    These alarming figures and the still ongoing displacements conducted Premiere Urgence Internationale to launch an exploratory mission in December 2015 to get a better overview of the situation, a better acquaintance with the context and to meet with the partners. After this visit, a multi-sectorial needs assessment was conducted in the city of Maiduguri.

    Our action in the field

    The results of the assessment led PUI to position in host communities hosting IDPS of Maiduguri city.

    In the beginning, the strategy will be focused on :

  • Improving food security of the vulnerable population affected by the crisis via e-voucher / gardening / IGA
  • Improving access to water, sanitation and hygiene via rehabilitation and construction of boreholes, wells and latrines and access to hygiene and shelter Non Food Items (via e voucher)
  • During the course of February a health and mental health assessment will be realized in order to complete our analysis and to be able to set a referral system up for malnutrition cases and psychosocial in Maiduguri (Borno State).

    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 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.
