NRC Urban Programming in South Sudan Jobs

Overarching purpose

  • The objective of this piece of work is: To elaborate and solidify NRC South Sudan position & thinking with regards urban programming. In doing so, NRC South Sudan will develop a multi- year urban programme strategy document, urban case studies and concept notes for use in proposal development, donor engagement and organizational promotion and policy/advocacy work.

  • The overall objective of NRC’s urban programming will be to enable displaced people’s protection, well-being, self-reliance and integration in urban areas. NRC wants its urban programming to be effective in addressing the needs of displacement affected communities when it considers life-saving humanitarian response and resilience-building simultaneously, throughout the entire period of forced displacement rather than as sequential phases.
