CAMRIS Democracy and Governance Program Design Consultant Jobs in Kenya

During 2019 and 2020, most of the major programs implemented by DGC under the USAID/KEA 2014-2020 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) will come to an end.

At the same time, the mission has embarked on a new country-wide strategy development process that is likely to result in new program directions and new cross-cutting ways of doing business.

In particular, USAID recently announced an Annual Program Statement (APS) for Kaunti Kuimarisha Uendelevu - Strengthening County Sustainability.

Through this APS, USAID will support the development of Local Development Organizations (LDOs).

LDOs are county-wide umbrella organization that will serve as a foundational pillar to unite civil society without partisan politics, and with the mandate to foster community-led, community-managed and community-owned development.

The LDOs, which are rooted in USAID/KEA’s vision of Kenya’s Journey to Self-Reliance, must be inclusive for all county voices and stakeholders to advocate for real accountability, to carry out investment programs, to mobilize resources, to engage with county government, to collaborate and learn about what can work to develop the county, and especially to improve the lives of the vulnerable.

In late 2018 and early 2019, DGC began to consult with key stakeholders to plan for modifying existing activities and begin to design new Kenya activities that would be responsive to emerging issues (including Kenya’s fluid political environment), align with the Journey to Self Reliance (J2SR) and provide flexibility to adapt to the new USAID/KEA CDCS.

While significant progress was made to realign existing programs, very little has been done on new program designs.

    conduct strategic planning and program design in the areas of countering violent extremism (CVE), accountable governance and devolution, anti-corruption and civil society.

  • Contribute as needed to mission-wide CDCS process.

  • This paper, once approved by the USAID Front Office, will inform the design of new DGC programs.
  • 2 or more new activity designs for new CVE and governance/anti-corruption/civil society activities (or other areas that may be deemed a priority) which includes supporting documentation.
  • A summary document of DGC’s most important successes and lessons learned (with evidence to back it up) from the 2014-2020 strategy.
