Saferworld Analysis and Outreach Manager - Jobs in Uganda

Saferworld Analysis and Outreach Manager - Jobs in Uganda

Background:

The Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF), funded by the British, Swiss, Dutch, and Canadian donor missions, supports the integration of conflict sensitive principles and practices into donor strategies and donor funded
programming in South Sudan.

Conflict sensitivity is a programming approach that emphasises strong contextual analysis and programmatic flexibility to minimise aid’s negative consequences and maximise its
positive impacts.

Conflict sensitivity is particularly important in volatile, conflict-affected contexts where
inadequate understanding of conflict and political dynamics can lead to donors and implementing partners inadvertently exacerbating the conflict.

The CSRF recently completed a two year pilot phase, and is now beginning a five year contract which extends from January 2019 to December 2023.

The Head of Analysis and Outreach plays a critical role in developing the CSRF’s analytical products, supporting the team’s internal analysis of the context, and leading on external discussions about how conflict sensitivity issues influence donor-funded programming.
