    South Sudan – Wash Program Manager – Wau Shilluk

    Desired start date: 01/04/2017

    Duration of the mission: 8 months

    Location: Malakal with daily travels to Wau Shilluk and frequent travels to Juba

    About the mission

    General context of South Sudan

    On July 9th 2011, South Sudan gained its independence, putting an end to a twenty-year civil war between the Khartoum regime and the separatist rebels in the South. The youngest state in the world boasts significant oil reserves but suffers from a lack of development and especially a lack of infrastructure.

    For now three years, South Sudan has been facing a civil war. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), one fifth of the population - about 2 million people - were displaced before the events of July 2016.

    In July 2016, heavy fighting erupted between rival forces – the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) loyal to President Salva Kiir and the SPLA in Opposition backing the former First Vice-President Riek Machar –in and around the capital city, Juba, on 7th July. Following this, the number of IDPs rose to more 3.2 millions, with an estimated 5.1 in dire need of humanitarian help.

    Overview of Solidarités International’s work in the country

    SOLIDARITÉS International has been operating in South Sudan since October 2006, and is strongly focusing on the emergency response to the life-saving needs of populations affected by the recurring armed crises and displacements in the country.

    SI has a strong field and coordination-based WaSH expertise. Beyond pure emergencies, SI aims at using it to contribute to the alleviation of malnutrition, water-borne diseases which still plague a substantial part of South Sudan population.

    This commitments works through 2 strategic axes :

  • A country-wise flying deployment capacity, through the Emergency Preparedness & Response mechanism (EP&R), which includes the conduction of rapid assessments and the implementation of emergency short WaSH interventions throughout the whole country. SI is an active EP&R partner, currently setting up a new humanitarian access-related setup and facilitating the reactivity of emergency air deployments for all EP&R partners, in collaboration with a specialized partner.
  • A province-tailored response, through a permanent presence if key cities and provinces (currently Malakal, Upper Nile). SI aims at developping an overall “WaSH package” for the area, being it inside the PoCs or outside in the towns/villages. Complementary interventions (FSL/Cash pilot/shelter projects) can be developed, and a strong focus is put on humanitarian actors’ coordination.
  • For 2016/2017, SI will focus on 2 areas of improvement:
  • Securing proper humanitarian access management tools, in order to maximize its capacity to respond swiftly within the EP&R mechanism, in deteriorating environments.
  • Develop semi-permanent or permanent solutions and response related to displacements in key affected provinces.

    A Medical Coordinator – South Sudan

    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 190 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 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

    Find out about our history and values

    Humanitarian situation and needs:

    In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 2 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. 2014 and 2015 have been years of continued instability due to unresolved border issues (between Sudan and South Sudan) and more importantly due to the civil war between SPLM/A forces loyal to President S. Kiir and SPLA-IO loyal to the rebel leader R. Machar, former vice-president.

    As of beginning of 2015; at least six out of 10 states are affected by armed violence, 1.66 million people have been displaced within the country, more than 640.000 refugees have fled out of the country, 3.9 million people are severely food insecure. Among IDPs, about 180.000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs.

    All this needs to be considered in a very young country within which virtually the entire population has experienced forced displacement at least 1 time and hence where resilience is massively jeopardized.

    Previous Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) (where PUI has operated since Feb. 2015) has been and still is largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict. However, a deterioration of the humanitarian context is to be noted and new displacements are still an option for the coming months.

    Our action in the field:

    PUI has been operating in SSD since February 2015 and intends to extend the coverage of its current intervention. Addressing urgent needs of the most vulnerable in the targeted areas is planned through the following strategic objectives:

  • Improvement of the access to health care services
  • Reduction of the risks associated with food insecurity and undernutrition
  • Other strategic objectives will be considered in 2017 and will be used to define complementary multi-sectoral needs assessment in the area where PUI is already operational but might also cover new counties/states depending on the evolution of the political/security situation. The sectors PUI would like to investigate are the following:
  • Shelter & NFIs, Water Sanitation & Hygiene, Rehabilitation & Construction and Economic Recovery. In 2015 PUI has implemented the following projects in the county of Aweil North (previous NBeG State):

  • Access to Primary Health Care services:
  • A Primary Health Care Centre has been fully operational in Malual Centre Payam and associated to outreach and community based activities in an area where host community is massively vulnerable and where movements are still recorded. The targeted area is virtually free from other type of humanitarian intervention. This project is funded by ECHO DG, and we anticipate continuing with the same donor in 2017

    Nutrition

    PUI provides nutrition services according to the Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM) protocol PHCC level and through outreach activities, which includes Out-patient Therapeutic Program (OTP) and Targeted Supplementary Feeding Program (TFSP) for children between 6 and 59 months as well as pregnant and lactating women (PLW) at four different nutrition sites, with the support of ECHO, UNICEF, WFP and GIZ.

    At Majak Kaar PHCC PUI runs a Stabilization Centre (SC) for children suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) with complications, which also serves as a referral site for OTPs and TSFPs run by PUI and other partners. In 2017 PUI plans to extend its nutrition services to a total of 11 nutrition sites in Aweil North.

    Food Security:

    Food distributions have targeted about 600 IDP households in Aweil North County as well as the families of patients discharged after having been treated for Acute Sever Undernutrition in the PHCC. This project has been supported by CIAA in 2015 and has also allowed distributing daily food parcels to patients and care-takers at the PHCC level.

    Beginning 2017 the mission plans to do a multisectoral in depth needs assessment with the aim to assess the needs and identify root causes of the continuous deteriorating nutritional status of the population in Aweil North.

    The financial volume of operation in 2016 is superior to the volume of 2015.

    TA Program Specialist, P3. Juba, South Sudan ( 364 days)

    Background

    The world's newest nation, South Sudan, is faced with myriad of challenges, some of which stretch back to historical marginalization and under-development and others which have arisen more recently, including those due to the conflict which erupted in December 2013.

    As a result, multiple and interlocking threats, including conflicts and inter-communal violence, economic decline, disease, and climactic shocks, there are increased humanitarian needs across South Sudan. It is estimated that these shocks have affected at least 8.7 million people, with conflict and violence directly affecting more than 7.2 million people and an additional unprecedented 4.8 million people have been projected to suffer from severe food insecurity.

    Of those affected by the crises in South Sudan, at least 4.6 million are in need of humanitarian assistance. Nearly 2.3 million people – one in every five people in South Sudan - have been forced to flee their homes since the conflict began, including 1.65 million internally displaced people and more than 634,000 people who have fled the country as refugees.

    Over the years, the Republic of South Sudan has been one of the riskiest places in the world for women to become pregnant and for children to be born. Many children do not survive beyond their first birthday (i.e. Infant Mortality Rate = 79 in 1,000 livebirths) as they are at high risk of dying from preventable and curable diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea, neonatal infection, preterm delivery, pneumonia, vaccine preventable diseases, and water-borne illnesses.

    Malnutrition is also a major underlying cause of morbidity and mortality. The Lancet Series on Maternal and Child Nutrition, 2013 published that globally almost half (45%) of all deaths in children aged under five are caused by malnutrition.

    The serious impact that malnutrition has around the world on child mortality was made clear in the study, which found that malnutrition was responsible for around 3.1 million deaths in children under five annually.

    This situation in South Sudan was further exacerbated by the conflict that started in December 2013. More than 1.69 million people are displaced internally within South Sudan with over 200,000 IDPs living in Protection of Civilian (PoC) sites across the country.

    The vulnerabilities of the population have been heightened by recurrent displacement, severe food insecurity, and disease outbreaks such as cholera, measles and malaria, all of which have been seen in the last two years.

    The conflict has also greatly intensified an already high burden of malnutrition. Acute malnutrition levels were as high as 36 per cent before the conflict. As per the 2010 Household Survey, 28 per cent of children are underweight, 31 per cent stunted and 23 per cent wasted.

    In terms of Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices, only 45 per cent of children 0-6 months in South Sudan are exclusively breastfed. 5.8 million People are moderately or severely food insecure. The bulk of this acutely food insecure population (57 per cent) is located in the Greater Upper Nile states of Unity, Jonglei and Upper Nile.

    Maternal and child mortality rates are extremely high in South Sudan. The Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) is 2,054 per 100,000 live births – this translates to one in seven women dying due to pregnancy related complications.

    Just to put this figure into context, the first health Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) is aimed towards reducing MMR to 70/100,000 live births by 2030. Relevant contributing factors include very low antenatal care visits, with only forty per cent of mothers receiving at least one antenatal care visit, and only 17 per cent make the 4 or more visits as recommended.

    Less than 20 per cent of deliveries are attended by skilled birth attendants, and only 12 per cent of deliveries occur in health facilities. Although South Sudan has seen a reduction in childhood mortality rates, the infant mortality rate is estimated at 79 per 1,000 live births, while the under-five mortality rate is estimated at 108 per 1000 live births.

    Neonatal mortality rate is 43 deaths per 1000 live birth, meaning that 55% of deaths in infancy occur during the first 28 days of a child's life. A 15 year-old girl has a higher chance of dying at childbirth than completing her education in South Sudan.

    The already fragile health system in South Sudan has been worsened by the current crisis which resulted in the destruction of 43 per cent of health facilities in conflict-affected areas, leading to disrupted provision of health services in three states (Jonglei, Unity, and Upper Nile) and a deterioration of the overall health condition of the population.

    This is consistent with data from the national Health Management Information System (HMIS) indicating that over 2.4 million people suffered from malaria in 2015 which was an increase of 61 per cent over the 2014 figure of 1.5 million. 2015 saw an unprecedented malaria outbreak among IDPs in Unity and Upper Nile state.

    The scale of the outbreak was extremely high in Bentiu PoC where the malaria incidence (cases per 10,000) increased exponentially from 7 in week 1 of 2015 to 595 in week 42 of 2015 with a peak incidence of 752 in week 37 of 2015.

    Although the attack rate was high in Bentiu PoC, the highest caseload of malaria was seen in Northern Bahr El Ghazal (264,222) followed by Central Equatoria State (257,872) with these two States representing a proportionate morbidity of 46% and 44% respectively. Overall, a total of 44 counties in the seven stable states have reported elevated number of malaria cases.

    Immunization coverage in South Sudan is still very low, and has decreased since the outbreak of conflict, leading to accumulation of large number of un-immunized children which poses the risk of measles, wild polio and other vaccine preventable diseases outbreaks.

    The coverage is extremely low in Jonglei, Unity state and Upper Nile states with coverage of OPV 3 at 11 per cent, Penta 3 at 10 per cent, TT2+ at 6 per cent and BCG at 19 per cent. Two cases of vaccine derived polio were also confirmed in Unity State (one in Bentiu PoC another one in Mayom county).

    The risk of epidemic disease outbreaks remains high and is negatively impacted by displacement, poor sanitation and lack of clean water. Potential risks include cholera, measles, hepatitis E, diarrheal diseases, acute respiratory infection, and malaria. Cholera is endemic in South Sudan and the 2015 cholera outbreak resulted in 1,818 cases and 47 deaths.

    The institutional capacity to manage these outbreaks and other health related issues such as complicated pregnancies is limited. While the number disease cases fluctuates and is reported weekly, currently 214 health facilities out of 410 (59 per cent) are no longer functional in Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity States.

    Humanitarian needs for WASH services remain urgent and acute. The large-scale displacement of IDPs to areas without sufficient access to safe water and adequate sanitation has greatly increased their vulnerability to waterborne diseases. Likewise, in communities hosting displaced people, there are limited shared water resources and access to sanitation are often in disrepair from over usage.

    South Sudan has been affected by cyclic cholera outbreaks since 2006. Due to the preventive activities that were undertaken, the scale of the 2015 cholera outbreak was much lower compared to the previous ones.

    Regardless, the outbreaks of 2014 and 2015 revealed that cholera was prevalent in heavily congested suburbs and peri-urban areas where access to safe water is limited including Juba in Central Equatoria, Jonglei and Eastern Equatoria States.

    Sustainable and reliable water sources and sanitation facilities are required to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, in areas where the vulnerable groups fleeing from conflict and hunger are located.

    Most of the vulnerable groups have resorted to drinking contaminated water from the road side and from ponds which are contaminated with human waste due to high rate of open defecation. Open air defecation poses the risk of faecal oral contamination due to inadequate promotion of improved hygiene practices.

    Duration: 6 months

    Start Date: 15 February 2017

    Funding Source (WBS, Grant and GL Code)

    Grant:

    Background

    Despite the mounting humanitarian needs in South Sudan, donor funding for organizations working in the country is reducing. The reasons for this are various: competing global emergencies, a focus among European governments on refugee inflows and fatigue among donors with a protracted, and largely man-made, crisis in South Sudan.

    As a result, several embassies, among them the German and the Danish, have already announced that their funds for South Sudan will be reduced in 2017. ECHO funding has been cut by 20% for 2017 compared to 2016. With a new administration assuming power in Washington from 2017, it remains to be seen whether US funding will also be impacted.

    Donors are also aware that the government continues to limit humanitarian access in many areas while at the same time expelling aid workers who have been outspoken. This has resulted in discussions among donors about the possibility of withholding funding or even leaving the country.

    Given this landscape it is important that the needs on the ground and the potential impacts of funding shortfalls be highlighted to donor governments, their constituents and those who can influence them.

    During the crisis in Juba in July 2016, most donors present in South Sudan left or were evacuated to neighboring countries. However, by the end of 2016 many have re-established at least a limited presence on the ground.

    UNICEF's biggest donor, the US Government through USAID, OFDA and FFP, was present on the ground during the crisis; DFID is planning to re-establish a permanent international presence in Juba in 2017; the European Union, especially ECHO are back in country and so are the Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Japanese and German embassies; some with reduced presence for the time being. However the Canadian Government as well as JICA and the GIZ have not yet returned to South Sudan.

    Justification

    With the conflict in South Sudan now in its fourth year, securing funding is becoming increasingly difficult due to many competing global emergencies and changing political situations in Europe and the United States. Many donors have cut their funding to South Sudan and the competition over the remaining funds available to humanitarian agencies has become more intense. Due to its excellent reputation among donors and its wide reach via 10 field offices, good opportunities exist for UNICEF to secure additional financial support. To best exploit these opportunities, the work of the communications section and its outputs need to be better aligned with the office's new fundraising strategy.

    The consultant writer/editor will be contracted for a period of six months with the objective of producing written material that highlights funding gaps and challenges and the implications of those gaps on the children of South Sudan.

    She/he will spend 50 percent of her/his time in the field producing both short and long form news and feature stories that address both UNICEF CO funding needs and donor visibility requirements.

    These will be used across the range of UNICEF and UNICEF South Sudan digital platforms and will also be pitched to news organizations.

    Specific Tasks

  • Write press releases, feature and human interest stories for dissemination to global media, UNICEF national committees, donor governments and UNICEF digital channels.
  • Pitch news stories and features to relevant media.
  • Write at least one Op-Ed to be pitched to a tier 1 media organization.
  • Contribute to visibility annexes of donor reports as necessary
  • Working with the rest of the team, contribute regularly to UNICEF South Sudan social media pages.
  • Provide ideas and regular input to the communications section editorial calendar.
  • Contribute content to headquarters global initiatives.

    Background

    Despite the mounting humanitarian needs in South Sudan, donor funding for organizations working in the country is reducing. The reasons for this are various: competing global emergencies, a focus among European governments on refugee inflows and fatigue among donors with a protracted, and largely man-made, crisis in South Sudan.

    As a result, several embassies, among them the German and the Danish, have already announced that their funds for South Sudan will be reduced in 2017. ECHO funding has been cut by 20% for 2017 compared to 2016. With a new administration assuming power in Washington from 2017, it remains to be seen whether US funding will also be impacted.

    Donors are also aware that the government continues to limit humanitarian access in many areas while at the same time expelling aid workers who have been outspoken. This has resulted in discussions among donors about the possibility of withholding funding or even leaving the country.

    Given this landscape it is important that the needs on the ground and the potential impacts of funding shortfalls be highlighted to donor governments, their constituents and those who can influence them.

    During the crisis in Juba in July 2016, most donors present in South Sudan left or were evacuated to neighboring countries. However, by the end of 2016 many have re-established at least a limited presence on the ground.

    UNICEF's biggest donor, the US Government through USAID, OFDA and FFP, was present on the ground during the crisis; DFID is planning to re-establish a permanent international presence in Juba in 2017; the European Union, especially ECHO are back in country and so are the Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Japanese and German embassies; some with reduced presence for the time being. However the Canadian Government as well as JICA and the GIZ have not yet returned to South Sudan.

    Justification

    With the conflict in South Sudan now in its fourth year, securing funding is becoming increasingly difficult due to many competing global emergencies and changing political situations in Europe and the United States.

    Many donors have cut their funding to South Sudan and the competition over the remaining funds available to humanitarian agencies has become more intense. Due to its excellent reputation among donors and its wide reach via 10 field offices, good opportunities exist for UNICEF to secure additional financial support. To best exploit these opportunities, the work of the communications section and its outputs need to be better aligned with the office's new fundraising strategy.

    The digital producer will be contracted for a period of six months with the objective of producing video and photo content that highlights funding gaps and challenges and the implications of those gaps on the children of South Sudan.

    She/he will spend 50 percent of her/his time in the field producing digital content for use primarily on the UNICEF South Sudan social media channels and UNICEF global channels. Longer form photo essays and videos will also be shared with national committees, the digital unit at headquarters and pitched to news organizations.

    Specific Tasks

  • Produce photos and videos for use on the CO social media channels, UNICEF national committees, donor governments and UNICEF digital channels.
  • Pitch longer form videos and photo essays to relevant media.
  • Provide digital content to meet donor visibility requirements
  • Provide ideas and regular input to the communications section editorial calendar.
  • Contribute content to headquarters global initiatives.

    Consultancy Innovative data analytics and Information Management South Sudan

    If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

    For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Purpose of the Position, Key Expected Results andKey Accountabilities and Duties & Tasks

    1. The people of South Sudan suffered decades of conflict before Independence in 2011. When a new civil war began in December 2013, South Sudan had only nascent government institutions and some of the lowest development indicators in the world.

    To date, this conflict has displaced over two million people, 1.5 million of whom remain displaced inside the country. After many rounds of political negotiations and setbacks between the warring parties, there is little hope of a resolution to the conflict in the near term. The conflict in South Sudan is highly complex, with constantly shifting frontlines, varying accessibility and multiple displacements of affected populations.

    In this complex environment, UNICEF is providing lifesaving basic social services through implementing partners, but also through direct implementation in hard to reach communities with Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) missions which deploy technical experts to assess and directly respond to the situation on the ground.

    In 2016, the UNICEF South Sudan country Office (SSCO) reached over 1.2 million conflict-affected children with multi sectoral, lifesaving services including immunization, therapeutic feeding, water, sanitation, hygiene promotion, education and protection.

    Within the SSCO, the SPPME section focuses on (i) delivering results in evidence generation, analysis, policy dialogue and advocacy, (ii) building social protection capacities and (iii) developing capacities in social inclusion and the mainstreaming of gender equality and girls/women empowerment in the SSCO programs and in UNICEF's support to government.

    It further seeks to better understand and address the key risks faced by the Country Program by developing collaborations with other agencies and making better use of UNICEF's and partners capacities to produce data that can feed common analytical work.

    The SPPME needs support in its analytical work, and in developing its system to produce fact-based strategic and programmatic thinking. It is seeking a consultant through a long term agreement to build upon its information management system, produce ad hoc analyses, and train its staff as needed.

    This aims (i) to maintain a high level of awareness of the rapidly evolving situations, their impacts on children and women, and their implications in terms of the SSCO's ability to deliver on our mandate, and (ii) to support an eventual move from emergency support to recovery, stabilization, and resilience.

    The key focuses of the work will be to help proactively plan ahead of potential major crises, to develop an information system that produces real-time information on the situation of children and women, and to contribute to detecting and timely acting upon risks of mass atrocities.

    Function and key results expected of the consultant:

    To improve UNICEF's information management system as well as the planning, monitoring and evaluation of the SSCO's response in South Sudan, the Consultant will work on the following tasks in close consultation and coordination with the Chief of SPPME through a remote consultancy and up to two visits in South Sudan working for a total of twelve months over the 24 months of the contract:

    (i) Improve UNICEF's system of information management and monitoring:

    A 2016 analysis reviewed the extent to which UNICEF information management (IM) functions are synchronized across the different programs, from partners to Field Offices, from Field office to Juba, from clusters to programmes, and into the SSCO's overall M&E system.

    It pointed to missing links between the information collected and these used to inform humanitarian and development work. It further reviewed UNICEF's capacities in terms of IM systems, of qualified staff dedicated to the different functions, and of relevant IT resources.

    It provided recommendations on how to improve and streamline the information management functions across humanitarian and development work and how to ensure that information is directly linked and used in the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

    There is a need to implement the main recommendations of that IM analysis, along the lines below and to integrate new elements related to the real-time monitoring of the situation of children and women, and of the operating environment, constantly affected by crises largely of political and security nature and subjected to natural constraints (weather, road access) and bureaucratic impediments.

    The main activities to be refined during the inception phase of the contract and revised as needed in coordination with the consultant will include:

  • Supporting the SPPME team to design and pilot a system for better risk-informed planning that links functions of program monitoring and information management and analyzes existing data that are often underutilized (many are used for reporting, but are rarely analyzed against other data). This system will further help develop analyses on the evolving risk of mass atrocities through a better informed understanding of political governance, and will as much as possible:
  • Help develop a system of real-time monitoring of the situation of children and women by tracking the evolution of key welfare indicators across the country based on data collected at the level of UNICEF's ten Field Office as well as by implementing partners and information systems UNICEF contributes to (e.g., the education and health MIS) and following a set of indicators part of UNICEF's core mandate to monitoring the realization of children's rights. This will also include collecting information from "sentinel sites" where essential services are delivered, including schools, health centers, or even markets.
  • Help develop UNICEF's current humanitarian access tracking matrix into a live system to analyze access constraints, document trends, and recommend actions to our development and humanitarian operations across the country.
  • Support the SSCO in developing tools to monitor key elements of situations leading to atrocity crimes, in a manner coherent with the UN's Framework of Analysis for Atrocity Crimes.
  • Design and pilot a practical system of social, economic and political monitoring and analysis to understand and follow up local political economy and enable continued humanitarian access in collaboration with UNICEF's Field Offices, UNDSS, UNMISS and local partners, making use of program and cluster data complemented by qualitative research methods.
  • Help refine SSCO's current Business Continuity Plan trigger system (that reports on and analyzes indicators of access, security, political situation, and human rights abuses across the country) and link its findings to a system of early warning and risk-informed programming.
  • Help SSCO set up the basis of an early warning system to forecast crises (due to price volatility, weather shocks, displacements of population, threat of violence…) and to point to possible early action mechanisms.
  • Make full use of existing data already collected at all levels (partners, field offices, clusters, support to government through sectoral information systems—e.g., in health of education) in both development and humanitarian activities, and link these to information retrieved from different sources monitoring the media as well as the evolution of the economic and security situations across south Sudan.
  • Collect and link information on beneficiaries with information on the actions implemented and the services provided to them (i.e., knowing the characteristics of our beneficiaries in a way that could allow to follow change),
  • Develop institutional and technical linkages with offices of UNMISS working on understanding the dynamics of the political, social and economic situations that affect fear, movements of population and allocation of resources. Help exchange and integrate data and information from major UN partners (WFP, FAO, OCHA…)
  • Work with SPPME to support qualitative situation analyses with data exploration and analysis supported by relevant infographics and dynamic systems of data visualization.
  • Support as needed the team in charge of the monitoring and reporting mechanisms on the grave violation of child's rights to improve their analysis and reporting systems, and to link them to other elements of information management for more complex analyses.
  • Enable the SPPME to produce relevant analyses and maps of information coming from our operations, including cross sectoral analysis, and analysis between the characteristics of beneficiaries and the types and quality of the initiatives implemented.
  • Provide technical inputs and recommendation to design innovation tools, including for real time monitoring, crowd sourcing, and social media based tools to engage the youth in social cohesion activities and in participation into peace building dialogues, consultations, and events.
  • Train UNICEF's M&E and information management staff in Juba and in field offices on how to use and maintain this system for better risk-informed planning as well as how to use innovative tools to engage the youth in positive dialogue, social cohesion and peace building activities (including the use of UNICEF's RapidPro and Ureport systems).

    (ii). Timely produce infographics, maps, analyses and briefing material and train UNICEF staff to do so: The complexity of UNICEF's operations in South Sudan requires highly skilled information and data management to feed into its planning, monitoring and reporting and communication and advocacy activities. The consultant will initially produce infographics, maps and analyses, while supporting the SSCO to gradually produce them on its own. These will include:

    High quality 5W matrices (who does what, where, when, and for who) and technically accurate GIS mapping of UNICEF's presence and responses in south Sudan to gain a proper understanding of the effectiveness of its responses and of their gaps.

    The SSCO needs to be able to produce on a real time basis a series of specific maps on its activities across the country by sectors, on the relations between needs and capacities to fulfill them, or on the location of partners among others.

    Visualization products, including infographics for the Situation reports (sitrep) based on Humanitarian Performance Monitoring and other key situational and response indicators, for donor briefings and background materials, for social media and other uses The preparation of ad hoc analytical notes, policy briefs and concept notes, including on (i) economic and political situations per region as they inform humanitarian and development access and the ability of the SSFCO to deliver on its commitments countrywide;

    (ii) the situation of children and women that will contribute to update UNICEF's Situation Analysis of Children and Women;

    (iii) localized analyses on the evolving occurrences and risks of atrocity crimes across the country, feeding information in the UN-wide work on the prevention of mass atrocities.

    The SSCO requires mapping and infographics to convey the severity of the situation for children as well as the breadth of UNICEF response to external audiences, including donors, government counterparts, and implementing partners as well as the media (of which social media).

    As the emergency in South Sudan becomes more protracted, there is a risk that the world will increasingly forget South Sudan while the situation of children continues to worsen. Professional quality infographics, maps and briefing materials are essential fundraising and advocacy tools.

    Communication materials will be designed in collaboration with the SSCO's communication and programme sections (health, education, WASH, nutrition, child protection). They will include briefing materials as well as reports.

    The consultant is expected to provide a detailed implementation plan during the first one week of the assignment following discussions with the SPPME team and an initial work plan will be agreed that will be subject to amendment depending on upcoming needs in coordination with the consultant

    · You understand personnel and organisational security issues, management and awareness

    · You are able to train and coach national and international staff in safety and security

    · You are fluent in written and spoken English

    · You have strong report writing, analytical and interpersonal skills

    · You are flexible and mature to work under pressure and within a multicultural team

    · Competencies in Microsoft Office and data base systems are appreciate as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the context and challenging of operating within the South Sudan region

    Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is a dynamic, international non-governmental organization. We work to reduce violence and protect civilians in countries affected by violent conflict and its aftermath. NP implements programming through the deployment of civilian protection teams to the field.

    South Sudan’s civil war has forced 2.27 million people to flee their homes and resulted in the loss of thousands of lives. The people of South Sudan are facing a humanitarian emergency and are in the midst of a conflict that is often described first and foremost as a protection crisis. In addition, the space for a free press and civil society organizations to work has shrunk due to protection issues.

    NP is continuing to scale up to meet the growing needs. In South Sudan, NP has a Civic Engagement team dedicated to working with civil society actors and organizations to identify protection issues as well as with journalists to encourage on the job safety and security.

    You are someone who is not deterred by the complexity of conflict; you are able to analyze conflict dynamics; you are motivated and unendingly persistent in finding and implementing protection and prevention strategies.

    You will be responsible for working together with other international and national colleagues to directly implement the project and to participate in reporting and documentation. You are comfortable living and working in a physically demanding environment, living full-time in a shared compound environment while enjoying a simple diet.

    The successful candidate combines creativity, innovation and demonstrated knowledge of protection, conflict prevention and peace building.

    S/he is experienced in human rights endeavors, journalism or free press advocacy, or civil society projects; skilled at converting protection, violence reduction and conflict analysis theory into practical, locally appropriate solutions that effectively increases safety and security of civilians affected by violent conflict.

    S/he has excellent interpersonal skills and flair for connecting and building trust with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. S/he is solutions focused, strategic and is driven by a keen interest and personal commitment to civilian protection.

    South Sudan - Food Security & Livelihood Strategy Developer - Juba

    Country: South Sudan

    Location: Based in Juba with field assessments

    Starting date: February 2017

    Duration: 4 months (renewed potentially as a food security coordinator position if funding is secured)

    Overall objectives of the mission:

  • Represent SI in all FSL related for a
  • Gather a maximum of data on food security in order to define major priorities
  • Lead a stakeholder analysis to target the relevant areas where the coverage is insufficient
  • Based on evaluated needs, cover gaps, our technical capacities, and humanitarian access matters , pick one or two intervention areas
  • In the targeted areas lead a precise diagnosis, prepare a diagnosis report, and develop a relevant country strategy
  • Write the relevant proposals and create a space to discuss our proposal with targeted donors

    Context of the mission:

    In October 2006, SI conducted an assessment in Malakal and its surroundings, where the population had doubled since 2004. Humanitarian priorities were to help the returnees getting back to both rural and urban areas, to improve access to basic services (water, sanitation, food, education, etc.) for the most vulnerable populations and to avoid further degradation of the situation in an area already subject to chronicle food crisis and poverty. SI strategy in the Upper Nile State was to respond to the WaSH needs of both urban population in Malakal and rural communities across the State.

    Following an assessment conducted in November 2008, SI chose to intervene in Juba as well. The food needs of slum population were huge considering the high prices in the city (importing everything from Kenya). SI’s first action in 2009-2010 aimed at responding to the population’s food and sanitation needs.

    From 2007 onwards, SI conducted several interventions in WaSH in Upper Nile State and Jonglei. They were triggered by various causes: Kalaazar or cholera epidemic, internal population displacements, influxes of refugees, etc.

    In 2011 SI launched its Emergency Preparedness & Response (EPR) team, aiming at leading multi sectorial assessments and delivering WaSH emergency services in absence of other actors in the area, funded by ECHO. Over the last contract in 2014/2015, SI conducted 7 emergency responses through this mechanism.

    From March 2010, SI started to work in WaSH in Unity State (Mayom, Abiemnom, and Rubkona Counties). SI activities were coordinated from an office in Bentiu (State capital). Following the attack of Mankien town on April 21st 2011 and the looting of SI compound, SI did not maintain its operational office.

    SI also worked in three refugee camps in Upper Nile State and Unity State, providing WaSH services, from 2012 until June 2014 when the activities in Yusuf Batil were handed over to the NGO Medair.

    Following the crisis that erupted in December 2013, SI started to intervene in the UNMISS Protection of Civilians sites of Malakal and Juba, providing WaSH services to IDP’s and in the informal settlement of Wau Shilluk, Upper Nile State, providing assistance to IDP’s.

    SI also restarted its FSL activities in South Sudan with the launching of a pilot cash transfer programme in Malakal County. Since then, SI has the strategic willingness to continue to implement FSL activities to answer to the humanitarian needs.

    SI is currently implementing three WASH-related projects funded by ECHO, UNICEF and CHF principally in Upper Nile State, and Juba but assessments and actions take place all over the country thanks to the EP&R mechanism

    We offer

    A salaried post: according to experience from 1600 euros gross per month, plus 10% annual leave allowance paid monthly and a monthly Per Diem of 700 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.
