L’expert devra également contribuer à la capitalisation de cette expérience avec les ONG et au renforcement des capacités des partenaires nationaux dans le domaine de la mission.

Profil de l’expert :

  • Formation :

Etre titulaire d’un diplôme universitaire (minimum BAC +5 ans), de préférence dans le domaine de la nutrition.
D’autres domaines de spécialisation (tel que la santé publique, la démographie, les statistiques...) pourront être pris en considération si l’expert a acquis des compétences requises par de nombreuses années d’expérience en matière de nutrition.

MISSION

Présentation de la zone d’intervention

Depuis plusieurs années, les populations de la sous-préfecture de Kabo, traditionnellement un bassin de production agricole, ont été victimes d’une série de chocs qui ont très négativement impactés sur leurs moyens d’existence. Aux fortes inondations d’août-septembre 2012 qui avaient dévasté les récoltes se sont ajoutés les pillages et les exactions liés à l’instabilité politique et aux changements de pouvoir. En réponse à ce contexte volatile, et malgré un relatif retour au calme en 2014, le triangle Kabo-Ouandago-Batangafo, qui est normalement sous l’autorité des sélékas, est le siège de déplacements de populations pratiquement permanents. La ville de Kabo accueille ainsi des personnes déplacées en provenance des axes Béhili et Moyenne-Sido (sites A et B).

La transformation progressive de la crise centrafricaine en conflit interconfessionnel a également chassé vers la ville des populations musulmanes venues d’autres régions du pays. Certains de ces mouvements ont été planifiés, comme le déplacement des populations de PK12 à Bangui vers le « site C » de Kabo, mais la zone continue régulièrement d’accueillir de nouvelles populations déplacées, notamment peulhs.

Les tensions traditionnelles entre agriculteurs majoritairement chrétiens et éleveurs majoritairement musulmans (nomades Mbororos et Fulatas, par exemple) ont également été fortement aggravées par le contexte, surtout depuis l’arrivée dans la région des transhumants Mbararas, alliés des sélékas, dont les troupeaux endommagent régulièrement les champs.Présentation du projet

Intitulé: « Programme de sécurité alimentaire et d’amélioration de l’accès à l’eau et à l’assainissement pour les populations vulnérables de la sous-préfecture de
Kabo – RCA »
Démarrage : 16/05/2014
Durée : 9 mois
Objectifs :
Objectif Général : contribuer à l'amélioration les conditions de vie et la coexistence pacifiques des populations affectées par des crises militaro-politiques en République Centrafricaine.
Objectif Spécifique : restaurer et renforcer les moyens d'existence des populations les plus vulnérables dans la Sous-Préfecture de Kabo.

Objectif général de l’évaluation

Dans le cadre de son contrat avec la DG ECHO puis avec DFID, une évaluation externe du projet est prévue afin d’avoir un regard externe et objectif sur les activités réalisées et de tirer des leçons pour les prochaines interventions.
En effet, SI souhaite poursuivre ses programmes sur la zone de Kabo, tant en SA/ME qu’en EHA, notamment pour la relance à moyen et long terme des activités agropastorales, et l’appui au retour ou à l’installation sur la zone de populations déplacées. SI, dans le cadre de cette intervention a lancé de nouvelles activités sur la zone autour de la thématique de la cohésion sociale et de l’élevage.
Il est donc particulièrement important à ce stade pour SI d’obtenir une estimation des succès et des limites des méthodes utilisées jusqu’ici, et d’en tirer les leçons pour les activités futures, notamment en termes de pérennisation des résultats acquis via les structures collectives créées ou appuyées et les formations individuelles dispensées pendant le programme.

Objectif général : Le consultant cherchera donc à évaluer en quoi le projet a permis de « restaurer et renforcer les moyens d'existence des populations les plus vulnérables dans la Sous-Préfecture de Kabo. »

Cette évaluation a un but d’apprentissage et devra présenter des recommandations pour améliorer la qualité de l’intervention. Objectif spécifique :

L’évaluateur devra étudier les résultats obtenus par les activités mises en place dans le cadre de ce programme, en comparaison avec les objectifs de ce dernier. Une attention plus grande sera apportée au secteur de la Sécurité Alimentaire / Moyens d’Existence.

La plupart des activités seront déjà finies et en voie de finalisation, excepté dans le secteur de l’eau, l’hygiène et l’assainissement.

PROFIL

  • Expérience terrain significative dans la mise en œuvre de projets de sécurité alimentaire et EHA
  • Expérience en mise en œuvre de Programmes de Transfert Monétaire, notamment l’organisation de foires/coupons. Expérience significative en suivi et évaluation de projet
  • Bonne capacité de rédaction et d’expression en français
  • Bonne connaissance de l’anglais (un des co-financements au projet provient de DFID)
  • Expérience en évaluation de projet DG ECHO, connaissance des critères du DAC
  • Capacité à travailler dans un contexte post-conflit et sécuritaire volatil
  • Connaissance de l’arabe et du sangho sont des atouts
  • Expérience du contexte centrafricain est un atout Documents à joindre à la candidature :

– CV

Burundi: UK & BURUNDI | French Sp. Accountant for NGO tackling armed conflict | 2-3 Weeks | Nov-Dec (source: Relief Web)

Eldis Job - Thu, 2014-10-23 15:53
Organization: Accounting for International Development
Country: Burundi, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Closing date: 21 Nov 2014

Our partner’s work has produced some incredible results in the 3 years that they have worked in Burundi where they aim to reduce conflict through monitoring ongoing violence, enhancing national capacity to respond effectively and ensuring that the needs of the victims are met. This includes helping to relocate those whose homes have been ravaged by war and providing them with emergency aid. The programme in Burundi aims to achieve this through supporting inclusive data collection, monitoring and analysis with government and civil society partners, and through integrated psychosocial and socioeconomic support to victims of armed violence.

You will be the first volunteer on placement with this particular partner and as such your role will be akin to undertaking an internal audit, whereby you will be required to analyse their financial controls and processes; ensuring that they are sufficient for the needs of the organisation. They also work with two local partners, one of which have already received support from an AfID volunteer and as such could do with a brief assessment to ensure that the work provided by our previous volunteer is still effective and up to date. Their second partner would very much appreciate some capacity building with their accountant, the finance manager of our partner simply hasn’t had the time to be able to provide the level of training needed and so it will fall to you to mentor their partner’s accountant. Also one of their partners has a partial finance manual to work with, but with your support they were hoping to finalise this document. Naturally, as the first volunteer on placement, it will require some flexibility and sensitivity on your part as your assignment will introduce AfID’s programme to the partner and will provide us with accurate financial information about them.

The work of our partner is indispensable in paving the road to reconciliation amongst former combatants; they provide ongoing support to the victims and witnesses of conflicts and working with global, national, regional and local government organisations in order to stem the flow of weapons. As such the support that you provide them with will make an immeasurable difference to their capacity for halting violence in the region. Although this is a voluntary placement, our partner is willing to cover the cost of your flights, your visa and pick you up from the airport upon arrival. For this assignment we would require a fluent French speaker to be able to communicate with the organisation.

To learn more about volunteering abroad as an accountant, join AfID and international development expert, John Cammack for the AfID workshop in London on the 31st of October. Find out where your skills fit in - http://www.afid.org.uk/page/4/Workshops
