Liberia: MdM seeks a DEPUTY GENERAL COORDINATOR (M/F) for Liberia (source: Relief Web)

Eldis Job - 5 hours 51 min ago
Organization: Médecins du Monde
Country: Liberia
Closing date: 31 Jan 2015

For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies. Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations.

MdM currently works in 46 countries across all continents where it focuses on 4 priority areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced persons, promoting sexual and reproductive health, combating HIV and reducing the harm and risks associated with drug use, crises and conflicts.

Between 2003 and 2013, Médecins du Monde (MdM) intervened in Bong County - north-central of the country - in support to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) and Bong County Health Team (BoCHT) implementing a number of programs which contributed to improve access to health services for the general population and the expansion of the Essential Package of Health Services (EPHS). 2014, MdM started a new programme in Monrovia (Montserrado County) aiming at ensuring the provision of health care, psychosocial support and access to rehabilitation services for marginalized people in the ghettos.

Since the beginning of 2014, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are experienced an unprecedented Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic. In Liberia, the first wave of the epidemic (March 17–April 30) affected 5 counties with 6 EVD confirmed cases out of 26 cumulative total and 11 deaths. The second wave which started in June is evolving fast. The government has instituted a 90 day state of emergency, and has closed borders and deployed its military personnel to assist in the containment of the epidemic. As of August the 28th, 2014 a cumulative total (confirmed, probable and suspected) of 1590 cases including 896 deaths (CFR of 56.3%) have been reported. The distribution of cases shows that 2 Counties (Lofa and Montserrado) are the most affected with Lofa County being the epicenter of the epidemic. The situation of EVD epidemic is gradually deteriorating to emergency humanitarian crisis with limited access to health care for the non-EVD patients, a security threat following the sealing off of West Point in Monrovia, the rising of commodity prices, a limited access to food for the quarantine population (Lofa, Bomi, Dolo’s Town/Margibi and West Point/Montserrado) and logistics and coordination constraints at all levels.

MdM is currently scaling up its activities in response to Ebola to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To reduce transmission EVD transmission rates by reinforcing community awareness of EVD prevention techniques, and to strengthen community participation in EVD prevention programs in four (4) zones of Montserrado County (Objective 5 of Liberia Emergency Ebola Epidemic Response Plan)
  2. To support five health facilities in Montserrado County offer appropriate and safe health services to the population (population base of 600,000), including measures to avoid EVD cross-contamination.

Pays : Cameroun

Région : Région Centre et Est

Ouverture du poste

Départ prévu : poste à pourvoir en février 2015

Durée du contrat : 12 mois

Type de contrat : Volontariat

Nature et contexte du projet :

Au Cameroun et en particulier dans les Régions Centre et Est, de nombreux producteurs agricoles sont confrontés depuis quelques années à une baisse de leurs revenus liée à la baisse des prix des produits de rentes classiques suite aux crises du café et du cacao. De nombreux producteurs, dont de nombreux jeunes migrent vers les villes pour rechercher un travail.

Dans ce contexte, pour de nombreux producteurs agricoles, la pisciculture est apparue comme une diversification intéressante, donnant accès à un revenu supplémentaire et stable et à une nouvelle source de protéines pour la famille. Le poisson est la première protéine animale consommée au Cameroun ; c’est aussi la moins chère. Il constitue donc un marché important au niveau du village et des ses environs.

Cependant, les systèmes piscicoles proposés aux producteurs agricoles désireux de se lancer dans l’activité piscicole ne sont souvent pas adaptés au milieu dans lequel ils évoluent. Les productions restent minimes et les poissons obtenus sont difficilement commercialisables en raison de leur petite taille.

Le modèle piscicole (et rizipiscicole) proposé, utilisant les ressources en eau disponibles, peu exigeant en temps et en trésorerie et reposant sur une autonomisation de la production, constitue une solution pertinente aux problèmes rencontrés. Le projet propose aux entrepreneurs-paysans d’investir dans la leur main d’œuvre et peu de liquidités pour aménager leur bas-fond.

Kenya: Terms of Reference: Evaluation of the ‘Lake Victoria Rights Programme’ 2012 – 2014 (source: Relief Web)

Eldis Job - 6 hours 20 min ago
Organization: Diakonia Sweden
Country: Kenya, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania
Closing date: 14 Nov 2014

Terms of Reference Evaluation of the ‘Lake Victoria Rights Programme’ 2012 – 2014

1. About Diakonia

Diakonia is a Swedish non-governmental organisation whose mission is to change unfair political, economic and social structures that generate poverty, oppression and violence. Diakonia supports civil society organisations in about 30 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America and has its Head Office in Stockholm, Sweden. Diakonia works through capacity building of civil society actors in partnership with local and regional organisations (both secular and of various faiths) and seeks to employ a rights based approach to development in all programmes, including a special focus on gender equality. For more information please visitwww.diakonia.se.

2. Description of the ‘Lake Victoria Rights Programme’

The ‘Lake Victoria Rights Programme’ (LVRP) is managed from the Diakonia Africa Regional Office in Nairobi in partnership with seven implementing local partners in three countries. They include five Kenyan organisations active in Sio Port / Busia County; Osiri and SW Seme / Kisumu County; and Mfangano Island / Homa Bay County as well as one Ugandan organization located on Ssess Island and one Tanzanian organisation on the Ukerewe Island / Mwanza region. The LVRP has a total annual budget of about 600, 000 USD and is currently funded by Diakonia core funds from the back donor Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). It is lead by a Programme Manager in Nairobi, with support from a Programme Officer and a Finance Officer (working 50%) under the supervision of a Deputy Regional Manager. The objective of the programme is a strengthened civil society, which is contributing to democratization through increased realization of human rights among fishing communities of Lake Victoria. Diakonia staff is responsible for all of the capacity building of partners and strategic quality assurance and resource mobilization.

3. Purpose of the Evaluation

The proposed evaluation should be seen in light of the upcoming strategy development process, which will take place during 2015 – a process where Diakonia is evaluating the results of past programmes in Africa and develop strategic ideas for the next five years. The purpose of the evaluation is to get a better grip of to what extent the current programme design is still relevant to the needs and experiences of the rights holders, including the role played by Diakonia. The findings of the evaluation will form the basis on which the regional management team will decide on the future shape of LVRP and can possibly also result in a phase out of the programme.

The LVRP is currently undergoing its 3rd phase of implementation that started in January 2012 and will end in December 2015. Over the last couple of years, the LVRP has generated some interesting results for the fishing communities around the Lake, which have been documented in a number of evaluations, reports and in social media. In comparison with the previous two phases (2006 – 2008; and 2009 – 2010) the Programme Strategy for 2012 – 2015 emphasized to a greater extent the area of advocacy and political influencing related to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and to engage more in national and regional political processes and influencing. The HIV and AIDS rate and poverty levels around the Lake remain comparatively high, and the lack of SRHR is deemed to be an important reason for this, along with the limited choices of livelihood besides fishing. The strengthening of the advocacy component of SRHR was also a strategy to attract new partners and donors for financing. The regional aspect of the programme is considered an added value in the design of the programme – and therefore the evaluation shall also look into what this means in practice since this dimension is currently not clearly demonstrated in the annual reports of the programme. Note: The objective of the evaluation is not to undertake a detailed evaluation of each implementing partner but rather to assess the specific results achieved during 2012 - 2014 in relation to the original application and proposals submitted by partners.

4. Objectives of the Evaluation

The overall objective of the evaluation is to assess the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, sustainability, lessons learned and the role and added value of Diakonia compared to the expected results set out in the programme application.

5. Scope of the Evaluation

The evaluation is intended to cover the programme implementation period of January 2012 – December 2014 (i.e. 3 years) and should identify expected and unexpected results, including lessons learned by answering the following questions:

*Relevance* – the extent to which the programme was well suited to the priorities of the rights holders in the project sites:

  • Are the activities and outputs of the programme (including activities and outputs on a regional level) consistent with the overall goal and the attainment of the programme objectives?
  • Are the activities and outputs of the programme (including activities and outputs on a regional level) consistent with the intended / expected impacts and effects?

*Effectiveness* – the extent to which the programme attains its objectives:

  • To what extent were the objectives achieves / are likely to be achieved (including on a regional level)?
  • What were the major factors influencing the achievement or non-achievement of the objectives?

*Efficiency –**how qualitative and quantitative outputs are measuring in relation to the inputs:*

  • Were activities cost-efficient (including regional capacity building activities organized by Diakonia)?
  • Were objectives achieved on time?
  • Was the programme or project implemented in the most efficient way compared to alternatives (including for example incorporation into Diakonia Kenya or Uganda Country programmes)?

*Impact –**the positive and negative changes produced by a development intervention (directly or indirectly), intended or unintended:*

  • What has happened as a result of the programme or projects of the partners (including on a regional level)?
  • What real difference has the activity made to the beneficiaries?
  • How many people have been affected?

*Sustainability and Added Value of Diakonia –**if the benefits of the programme activities are likely to continue in case Diakonia ceases its support?*

  • On the positive side: Are there factors of the programme which indicate that the benefits of the programme and project activities will continue (including on a regional level) even if Diakonia funding ceases beyond 2015?
  • On the negative side: Are there any factors of the programme which indicate that the benefits of the programme and project activities will no longer continue (including on a regional level) if Diakonia ceases its financial / monetary- and capacity building support to the programme partners?

*Lessons learned*

  • Are there any practices, approaches and methodologies which can be applied elsewhere to improve programme or project performance, outcome or impact of the programme or be used for organizational learning?

6. Methodology

A brief methodology of the evaluation will be proposed by the consultant(s) as part of the formal application (see “Mode of Application” below). Following the selection of consultant(s) a more detailed methodology will need to be developed by the consultant(s) taking into account the following aspects: a) what kind of information is to be collected (first hand, second hand, etc.) and will it contain interviews (e.g. qualitative data)? b) What measurements and assessments are to be made in light of the scope of the evaluation above? c) How will the analysis of the quantitative and qualitative data be made and on which criteria will it be made? How will the data be analysed? d) How will the conclusions and recommendations be presented? Lastly – to what extent are rights holders and other stakeholders in the programme expected to participate in the different stages of the evaluation above?

7. Roles and Responsibilities

  • Diakonia will set up a reference group consisting of relevant programme staff from the Regional Office in Nairobi and will be chaired by the Programme Manage for the Lake Victoria Programme. The groups shall include one partner representative. The reference group shall be the main platform for any in-depth discussion between the consultant(s) and Diakonia in the different phases of the evaluation, including planning / preparation, research, activities, reporting and dissemination).

Switzerland: Gender Equity and Diversity Consultant (source: Relief Web)

Eldis Job - 6 hours 25 min ago
Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 07 Nov 2014

UNHCR is looking for a dedicated person with significant experience in gender and diversity, in a HR context, to drive the process and ensure the involvement of relevant stakeholders and continuous commitment from senior management.

The consultant will draft a comprehensive strategy and framework to address gender and diversity in staffing in UNHCR. More details, including the Responsibilities and Profile are included in the attached pdf.

Background Information:

The Division of Human Resources Management (DHRM) at the United Nations Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is committed to systematic examination and assessment of the effectiveness of UNHCR human resources policies. UNHCR has adopted a two-pronged approach to gender equality: mainstreaming gender and promoting targeted actions to address gender and diversity issues. Recognizing that our operational effectiveness is highly dependent on our staff, it is crucial that our staff reflect both gender and diversity in order to best respond to our persons of concern. Therefore, ensuring that human resources policies take into account gender equity, are family friendly and cognizant of LGBTI, are major priorities for DHRM. Following the launch of the Policy on Achieving Gender Equity in UNHCR Staffing on 7 March 2007 and with the goal of achieving a 50/50 gender distribution in UNHCR in all positions in the Professional category and above, work is still needed to implement relevant aspects of the policy in an effective manner. The policy should therefore be comprehensively reviewed, in order to introduce necessary actions to address gender equity, including among national staff. A dedicated person with significant experience in gender and diversity in a HR context is needed to drive the process and ensure the involvement of relevant stakeholders and continuous commitment from senior management.
