Active in 40 countries with 9,000 employees and supported by 7,500 volunteers, DRC protects, advocates, and builds sustainable futures for refugees and other displacement affected people and communities. DRC works during displacement at all stages: In the acute crisis, in displacement, when settling and integrating in a new place, or upon return. DRC provides protection and life-saving humanitarian assistance; supports displaced persons in becoming self-reliant and included into hosting societies; and works with civil society and responsible authorities to promote protection of rights and peaceful coexistence.

DRC has been present in Kenya since 2005 working with the displaced, offering support in areas of protection, livelihoods and armed violence reduction. The areas of operation include Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps (including Kalobeyei Integrated Settlement), as well as with urban refugees in Nairobi and Mandera.

  • Conduct a pilot with a small group of CSLAs to test the approach, including rolling out training and supporting the CSLAs as they transfer to digital record keeping and connection to formal finance, developing learning around successes and challenges for further roll out.
  • Based on successful pilot, further roll out the digital product/service to a larger selection of CLSAs while supporting troubleshooting of existing users on an ongoing basis.

Consultance pour la Coordination humanitaire-développement dans les secteurs de sécurité alimentaire & nutritionnelle et moyens d’Existence (SAN&ME)

Tue, 07 Feb 2023 21:41:35 +0000

Country: Mali
Organization: Norwegian Refugee Council
Closing date: 17 Feb 2023

1. Contexte

Le Mali a connu en 2021-2022 la pire crise alimentaire sur les dix dernières années. Les causes de cette dégradation sont multiples et comprennent notamment une mauvaise saison agricole 2021 lié à des pluies irrégulières et la détérioration continue des moyens d’existences agricoles et pastoraux induites par des conflits prolongés. A ces différents chocs sont venus s’ajouter les impacts des sanctions de la CEDEAO, les conséquences économiques de la pandémie COVID accentués par les conséquences mondiales sur les prix et les pénuries de certains produits d’importations provoqués par la guerre en Ukraine et les sanctions ayant suivies.

La hausse des besoins humanitaires n’est pas compensée par une hausse équivalente des financements et le Plan de Réponse Humanitaire pour le Mali en 2022 n’est financé qu’à 34%, le taux le plus faible de la région. Face à ce constat les humanitaires ont recentré leur action sur les réponses d’urgence au dépend du soutien aux moyens d’existence fragile. Entre janvier et octobre 2022, plus de 100% des besoins identifiés ont été couverts par au moins une assistance alimentaire tandis que seulement 30% des bénéficiaires ciblés pour un soutien aux moyens d’existence ont reçu de l’aide. La décision d’un nombre conséquent de bailleurs occidentaux de suspendre de l’aide budgétaire au gouvernement malien depuis 2021 semble s’être également traduit par une diminution des niveaux d’aide publique au développement affectant notamment les ressources publiques disponibles pour soutenir les ménages fragiles.

Dans ce contexte de crise complexe et de contraction des financements disponibles il devient d’autant plus crucial de déterminer comment mieux utiliser les ressources disponibles pour prévenir et répondre aux vulnérabilités dans le secteur de la sécurité alimentaire et des moyens d’existence (SA & ME).

2. Objectifs de la recherche

2.1. OBJECTIF GENERAL

Amélioration de la réponse collective à l’insécurité alimentaire & nutritionnelle ainsi qu’à la fragilisation des moyens d’existence en identifiant des actions concrètes à mettre en œuvre pour mieux coordonner et assurer la complémentarité entre réponses de développement et réponses d’urgence.

2.2. OBJECTIFS SPECIFIQUES

  • Cartographier les coordinations formelles et informelles du niveau national au niveau local ainsi que leurs fonctionnements concrets ainsi que les limites et avantages.
  • Identifier les besoins et recommandations exprimés par les ONG et autres acteurs du secteur sécurité alimentaire, nutritionnelle & moyens d’existence.
  • Faire ressortir les bonnes pratiques concrètes à travers au moins deux cas d’étude spécifiques.
  • Faire ressortir les besoins et recommandations exprimées par les populations dans les deux études de cas.
  • Proposer une analyse des défis et des solutions concrètes aux décideurs externes pour améliorer la coordination des réponses humanitaires et de développement dans le champ de la sécurité alimentaire, nutritionnelle et moyen d’existence.
  • Proposer une analyse aux ONG permettant d’améliorer leurs pratiques et coordination.

3. A qui s’adresse l’étude ?

  • Aux ONG actives dans le secteur de la sécurité alimentaire et des moyens d’existence
  • Aux Partenaires Techniques et financiers humanitaires et de développement engagés sur ce secteur.
  • Aux autorités et services compétents
  • Aux collectivités territoriales
  • Aux Nations Unies

4. Méthodologie

Méthodologie à préciser pour chaque étape avec la/le consultant(e).

La recherche est avant tout qualitative sur base de revues documentaires et d’entretiens semi-directifs avec des acteurs de la réponse SA&ME, des acteurs interagissant avec cette réponse et les populations concernées. L’échantillonnage se fera de façon non statistique.

La recherche favorisera des entretiens individuels avec quelques focus groupes (dont la méthodologie sera à préciser) dans les entretiens avec les populations.

Les entretiens avec les populations bénéficiaires et non-bénéficiaires seront pour une partie conduite par le consultant media/collecte de témoignage. Les deux consultants devront se coordonner pour déterminer comment des témoignages « media » peuvent nourrir la recherche plaidoyer.

5. Prise en compte de l’inclusion

Les entretiens avec les populations s’assureront des interviews avec plus de 50% de femmes et avec des populations à besoins spéciaux notamment des personnes souffrant de handicap. Des questions spécifiques pour les femmes et personnes en situation de handicap seront intégrées dans les questionnaires.

6. Approche, activités et livrables
