    Project Coordinator

    Job from International Rescue Committee Closing date: 20 Nov 2016

    Organizational Description:

    The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

    At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.

    Background:

    The IRC, together with Columbia University, has been working over the past twelve months on a project to develop new guidelines for integrating menstrual hygiene management into multi-sectoral humanitarian response.

    Following the finalization of these draft guidelines, the partners now plan to pilot them in an ongoing humanitarian emergency, in order to evaluate their effectiveness, both in providing guidance to humanitarian actors, and in enhancing services for beneficiaries. This pilot will be conducted over the course of six months in refugee camps in Tanzania.

    For over half a century, Tanzania has been a country of asylum, hosting one of the largest refugee populations in Africa. At present there are 66,370 Congolese refugees, many of whom have lived in Tanzanian camps for 20 years.

    Tanzania also now hosts 152,581 Burundian refugees, many of whom arrived over the last 16 months as violence in Burundi increased. Refugees continue to arrive at a rate of 200 persons per day, and are received at a dozen reception centers close to the Burundian border, before being transferred to a longer-term refugee camp.

    The IRC is providing a variety of services in these camps, together with other humanitarian agencies.

    The pilot project will begin in mid-October with a workshop in Kasulu, Tanzania, to which other humanitarian actors will be invited. From that time, it will run for a period of six months, including a detailed research evaluation of the pilot around month 4 of implementation.

    Job Overview:

    The Project Coordinator is responsible for guiding the pilot activities of the project in refugee camps in Tanzania. Working with other IRC Coordinators, Managers and programs, and collaborating closely with other agencies working in the camps, the Project Coordinator will develop plans, including pilot initiatives and work plans, and will guide the pilot through the six month course of action.

    The Project Coordinator will liaise closely with the GBV Coordinator, as a key partner in the coordination of the project. The role will report to the Deputy Director of Programs, and will also work closely with London, Nairobi and New York based Technical Advisors, and with the research team from Columbia University, New York.

    The position will supervise one national staff member, a WASH/Protection officer. The Project Coordinator will manage a project budget, and will be responsible for developing and maintaining project management tools. The role will be responsible for liaising with and supporting counterparts within IRC and beyond, with attending Cluster and other forums, and encouraging responsive program approaches which result in improved outcomes for project beneficiaries.

    The position is based in Kasulu in western Tanzania, with frequent travel to Kibondo (two hours travel by vehicle) and possible occasional travel to Dar es Salaam.

    Terms of Reference for a Tanzania Social Risk Assessment

    Job from Search for Common Ground Closing date: 19 Sep 2016

    1. Context

    Search for Common Ground is seeking a consultant to collaborate with the country and regional teams on a literature review and the development of tools for a Social Risk Assessment on community relationships and extractive industries in Tanzania.

    While Search has team members available to support this work, and we are committed to a more integrated approach to research (rather than a fully external consultancy), the team is specifically looking for support to ensure the innovative approach to the methodology, the expertise in community sustainable business practices in the field of extractive as well as the academic rigor of the literature review.

    Additional expertise in gold mining in Tanzania to support analysis and reporting will be prioritized in the selection of the consultant.

    About SFCG

    Search for Common Ground (SFCG) is an international conflict transformation NGO that aims to transform the way individuals, groups, governments and companies deal with conflict, away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative solutions.

    Headquartered in Washington DC, USA, and Brussels, Belgium, with field offices in 35 countries, SFCG designs and implements multifaceted, culturally appropriate and conflict-sensitive programs using a diverse range of tools, including media and training, to promote dialogue, increase knowledge and determine a positive shift in behaviors.

    SFCG has been working in Tanzania since 2006 to promote gender equality, foster good governance and encourage greater objectivity in the media. The team works in collaboration with a network of civil society, media and government partners across dividing lines to promote positive societal change.

    Intervention Summary

    The study will expand upon and build on existing knowledge. To this end, Search will carry out a detailed social risk assessment to identify local drivers of conflict and social deterrents to extractive industries’ work.

    The assessment will evaluate the history of interaction between the community, local government and the private sector around gold mining – identifyingexisting grievances and dynamics, and key triggers of past tensions (unmet legacy commitments/expectations, political interventions, etc).

    Special attention will be given to triggers of improvements to the relationship between the community and extractive industries, or positive solutions to past tensions.

    Objectives of the Social Risk Assessment

    The Social Risk Assessment will capitalize on Search’s extractive industry knowledge and experience in the mining areas, and its unique access to the community and local stakeholders. Over the past four years Search has cemented its position as a neutral third party, trusted to both gather information and manage conflict.

    The Social Risk Assessment will broaden, *enrich,**deepen* and *structure* Search’s knowledge giving a comprehensive understanding of the sources of social risks in extractive industries’ social work environment.

    Overall, the goal of the Social Risk Assessment is to provide a site-specific, detailed and holistic picture of drivers of conflict, and opportunities for improvement of the relationship with the community. The study will have four main objectives:

    Examine the perceptions of the population about community cohesion and the contributions of strategic social investment and engagement to cohesion.

    Assess the level of access to information in communities and the role of government in providing information, particularly to marginalized groups.

    Identify potential risks and conflict sensitivity issues associated with the current plans in programming.

    Identify any untapped opportunities that would allow us to maximize results in the mining areas related to security, protection, and coexistence.

    Examine the specific question of dependency and sustainability of programming an exit strategy for one of their sites.

    The findings of the Social Risk Assessment will be used to provide programming recommendations and highlight opportunities for more effective implementation based on identified conflict drivers, risks, and opportunities for conflict transformation.

    The study will also assess current media (print, radio and television) and information sharing among the wider population to identify opportunities for improved access and sustainability in communication about mining ownership (Search’s 4R approach assesses the Reach, Resonance, Response, and Relevance of different forms of media).

    As a follow-up to the Social Risk Assessment report, Search will update and continue to conduct monthly ‘community perception surveys’ to assess perceptions/approvals around extractive industries’ work and monitor the impact of Search project activities, using indicators identified in the social risk assessment. This will allow Search to adapt programming based on the unique needs of each community.[1]

    [1] See main agreement Advancing Sustainable Peace and Security in Tanzania (2015), Chapter 3.
