    Central African Republic: Chef de projet réhabilitation de pistes aériennes et mobilisation communautaire

    Sun, 13 Oct 2019 11:48:16 +0000

    Organization: Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion
    Country: Central African Republic
    Closing date: 27 Oct 2019

    CONTEXTE DE TRAVAIL :

    Indignés face à l’injustice que vivent les personnes handicapées et les populations vulnérables, nous aspirons à un monde solidaire et inclusif, où toutes les différences nous enrichissent et où chacun peut « vivre debout ».
    Handicap International / Humanité & Inclusion est une organisation de solidarité internationale indépendante et impartiale, qui intervient dans les situations de pauvreté et d’exclusion, de conflits et de catastrophes. Œuvrant aux côtés des personnes handicapées et des populations vulnérables, elle agit et témoigne, pour répondre à leurs besoins essentiels, pour améliorer leurs conditions de vie et promouvoir le respect de leur dignité et de leurs droits fondamentaux.

    Pour plus d’information sur l’association : http://www.hi.org

    HI (en collaboration avec le Cluster Logistique) est en charge depuis Ao슩t 2015 d’un projet de Plateforme Logistique visant à faciliter et à accroitre la réponse aux besoins urgents des populations affectées par la crise centrafricaine par les ONG présentes dans le pays.
    Les objectifs principaux du projet sont de restaurer l’accès des acteurs humanitaires par la diminution des contraintes logistiques auxquelles ils font face. Les 2 axes principaux de ce projet sont : (i) le renforcement et la mutualisation de la capacité de transport (aérien et terrestre) et de stockage de la communauté humanitaire, (ii) la réhabilitation de pistes aériennes dans le pays, utilisées par les organisations humanitaires.

    La réhabilitation de pistes aériennes est une composante à part entière du projet de Plateforme Logistique en cours en République Centrafricaine depuis l’été 2015. Ce volet d’activité est essentiel pour permettre aux organisations humanitaires (urgence & développement) de pouvoir accéder aux zones rurales du pays, afin d’y mener les activités visant à la couverture des besoins des personnes affectées par la crise et/ou engagées dans le développement.

    HI a ainsi développé une méthodologie de réhabilitation et de maintenance de pistes aériennes inclusive, permettant aux personnes – hommes ou femmes, avec ou sans limitations fonctionnelles - vivant autour de la piste aérienne ciblée de travailler à l’atteinte des objectifs à l’aide de la méthode à Haute Intensité de Main d’Oeuvre (HIMO).

    DESCRIPTION DE POSTE :

    Basé(e) à Bangui, avec des missions très fréquentes sur le terrain et sous la responsabilité du Coordinateur Plateforme, le CDP Réhabilitation de pistes aériennes sera en charge de :

     Assurer l’organisation, l’évaluation, la mise en œuvre, le suivi et la supervision des chantiers de réhabilitation des pistes aériennes. Il sera responsable du site à réhabiliter pendant la période d’intervention ;
     Recruter, encadrer, organiser et superviser les équipes de journaliers (HIMO) nécessaires à la mise en œuvre des activités dans les localités d’intervention ;
     Faciliter les relations avec les autorités et les communautés locales ainsi qu’avec les acteurs non-étatiques dans le cadre de la conduite des chantiers ;
     Assurer la sécurité du site et de son équipe pendant toutes les interventions ;
     Réaliser le reporting lié à ses activités (un rapport d’activités à la fin de chaque piste réhabilitée).

    En parallèle de la mise en œuvre de ces activités de réhabilitation et/ou de maintenance de pistes aériennes, le/la Chef de projet aura pour responsabilité de définir la stratégie de sortie de HI sur ce volet d’activité. En effet, le besoin en maintenance étant constant, il s’agit aujourd’hui de pouvoir identifier quels acteurs nationaux (ONGs locales, groupements de femmes, etc.) pourraient être en capacité d’effectuer ces travaux en lieu et place de HI. Il s’agit également de réfléchir à un mécanisme de financement (taxes aéroportuaires, mise en place d’une redevance des ONGs dans les localités, etc.) pour réaliser cet entretien régulier.

    PROFIL ATTENDU :

    -Diplôme/Formation :
     Minimum niveau Bac+2 en Génie Civil ou en ingénierie eau et assainissement.
     Diplôme complémentaire dans le domaine logistique ou dans un domaine technique.

     Expérience préalable en mobilisation communautaire avec la méthodologie HIMO (Haute Intensité de Main d’œuvre).
     Expériences en suivi de chantier ;
     Expériences en zones rurales isolées, où les conditions de vie (matérielles et sociales) sont basiques.

    -Compétences :
     Connaissance des outils de gestion de projet humanitaire (cycle de projet, etc…) ;
     Bonnes capacités de planification et d’organisation ;
     Capacité à gérer des équipes, tout en renforçant leurs compétences et leur autonomie ;
     Capacités d’anticipation et de prise de décision ;

     Capacité à travailler sous pression (lourde charge de travail ponctuelle, dégradation temporaire du contexte sécurité) ;
     Maîtrise du français obligatoire ;
     Maîtrise de l’environnement Windows.

    -Qualités personnelles :
     Engagement pour l’humanitaire et ses valeurs. Attention particulière portée autour des principes « Do No Harm », « Redevabilité » et « Acceptance communautaire » ;
     Sens de la communication ;
     Autonomie ;
     Rigueur.

    CONDITIONS :

    Home-based Consultancy - Report Writer for Water Under Fire Series

    Fri, 11 Oct 2019 21:33:00 +0000

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Closing date: 26 Oct 2019

    UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

    Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

    And we never give up.

    For every child, a champion.

    UNICEF is the lead agency responding to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs in emergencies. Guided by itsCore Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action, UNICEF continues to respond directly to emergencies around the world and remains the WASH cluster lead agency. This work ranges from emergency preparedness planning to post-emergency recovery. As part of its mandate, UNICEF provides critical WASH services in situations of armed conflict.

    Water installations and infrastructure are increasingly coming under attack by parties to conflict with grave implications for children. In situations of armed conflict, attacks deliberately or incidentally destroy infrastructure, injure personnel and cut off the power that keeps WASH systems running. Armed conflict also limits access to essential equipment and consumables such as fuel or chlorine – which can be intentionally targeted, destroyed, depleted, rationed, diverted or blocked from delivery. Far too often, essential services are intentionally denied. Particularly in cities, where communities depend on a complex, interconnected set of services, attacks on WASH and power systems can be instantly debilitating, with long-term consequences. Children are particularly vulnerable in these contexts, as deliberately or incidentally attacks against water infrastructure and personnel can cause diseases and death, can prevent the operation of hospitals and other medical services can affect children’s ability to attend school, and expose them to violence and abuse when collecting water.

    How can you make a difference?

    PURPOSE

    UNICEF is developing a three-volume report series entitled Water Under Fire, which focuses on WASH in situations of armed conflict. The report series aims to generate support and action around the UNICEF WASH humanitarian change agenda, including to improve advocacy, coordination, policy, programming and financing across the WASH sector. Volume 1 of the report series was released in August 2019; Volume 3 will be released in 2020. The report series will cover the following subjects:

  • Volume 1: Humanitarian–development–peace nexus
  • Volume 2: Quality and capacity of the WASH Humanitarian sector
  • Volume 3: Attacks against WASH infrastructure and personnel
  • The UNICEF Office of Emergency Programmes is hiring a consultant writer with extensive knowledge of international humanitarian and human rights law and extensive knowledge of WASH programming in conflict settings to draft the third volume in the series on attacks against water and sanitation systems and personnel in situations of armed conflict. The report will focus on how these attacks affect children and will suggest advocacy and policy recommendations for UNICEF, the WASH sector and duty bearers to protect children’s access to water and sanitation systems. The consultant will work under the supervision of the Humanitarian Policy Section of the Office of Emergency Programmes (EMOPS).

    OBJECTIVES AND TARGETS

    The overall objective of this consultancy is to develop the third report, provisionally titled Water Under Fire Volume 3: Attacks against WASH infrastructure and personnel, which will suggest advocacy and policy recommendations for UNICEF, the WASH sector and duty bearers to protect children’s access to water, sanitation and hygiene systems. This objective will be achieved through exemplifying situations and illustrating how children are impacted by deliberate or incidental attacks on WASH infrastructure, based on research and key informant interviews.

    SCOPE OF THE WORK

    The scope of the work includes developing an inception report and presenting it to a steering committee led by UNICEF for feedback and incorporating its comments and suggestions to develop the report. The consultant will then produce one draft report based on findings through collected data, key informant interviews and exemplified situations of how children are impacted by deliberate or incidental attacks on WASH infrastructure. The consultant will present the draft report to the steering committee, incorporate feedback received and then deliver to UNICEF a final draft report, ready for editing, which aligns with the feedback on the inception report received from the steering committee. The consultant will continuously assist the editor, where the editor deems necessary, throughout the editing process and as the report is going through the final reviewing stages by the steering committee. The report will provide information on how attacks against water and sanitation systems and personnel in situations of armed conflict affect children, and suggest advocacy and policy recommendations for UNICEF, the WASH sector and duty bearers to protect children’s access to water, sanitation and hygiene systems.

    EXPECTED RESULTS

    In close collaboration with the UNICEF Humanitarian Policy and WASH Sections, and the steering committee – led by UNICEF and composed of representatives from UNICEF and key partner organizations – established to guide the development of this report, the consultant will be expected to:

  • Present an inception report to the steering committee[1] (which will include timeline, method and focus) and update it in line with the feedback received from the steering committee.
  • Produce a 15,000-word report, through research and drafting (ensuring that it is in line with the feedback on the inception report), which will include the following tasks:
  • Ensuring that the report is consistently focused on how attacks against water and sanitation systems and personnel affect children.
  • Suggesting advocacy and policy recommendations for UNICEF, the WASH sector and duty bearers of children’s rights.
  • Undertaking research, including through key informant interviews and other means.
  • Identifying and addressing any politically or culturally sensitive issues that may be included in the report and bringing them to the attention of the supervisor and the steering committee.
  • Ensuring that arguments are presented in a balanced manner and that citations are included for statements and passages as required.
  • Incorporating comments/feedback from several sources, including the steering committee, while maintaining a consistent writing style and tone.
  • Presenting one draft to the steering committee, and then revising this to incorporate feedback before providing the editor with the final draft.
  • The steering committee will review the report in three (3) stages: inception report, draft report and following submission of the final draft to the editor.
  • When UNICEF has received and approved a final draft produced by the consultant, which is ready for editing and to be shared with the steering committee for their review, the consultant will remain available to assist the editor to make any further changes deemed necessary by the report lead, throughout the editing and reviewing process, such as responding to technical queries raised by the steering committee during the reviewing process.
  • 4. Ensure that the report adheres to UNICEF standard operating procedures:

    4.1 UNICEF Fact-checking Guidelines

    4.2 UNICEF Style Book

    4.3 UNICEF Brand Book

    [1] The steering committee will be composed of WASH and international humanitarian law specialists.

    Tunisia: Consultation nationale pour le renforcement de l’Unité de Justice pour les enfants, au sein du Ministère de la Justice, et de la coordination des différents intervenants du secteur justice pour les enfants

    Fri, 11 Oct 2019 18:33:01 +0000

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Tunisia
    Closing date: 18 Oct 2019

    1. Contexte et Justification de la consultation:

    Le bureau de l’UNICEF Tunisie a réalisé une revue à mi-parcours participative du programme de coopération en 2018 qui a abouti à une réorientation stratégique, y compris des changements structurels des résultats planifiés, en ligne avec le parcours de vie de l’enfant.

    1910 tdr_consultant justice.pdf

    Au cours de la période 2019-2020, le bureau continuera l’appui au renforcement du système de protection de l’enfance à travers trois interventions stratégiques visant : 1. la mise en place d’un système équitable d’accès des enfants à la justice, y compris les interventions en faveur des enfants associés aux groupes violents ; 2. le renforcement des compétences des travailleurs sociaux ; 3. la réduction de la violence à l'encontre des enfants en promouvant des normes sociales positives.

    Dans le cadre de la première intervention stratégique, l’UNICEF continuera de renforcer le programme d’accès des enfants et des adolescents à la justice en Tunisie, en tirant parti des résultats des années précédentes. Pour répondre à des besoins concrets, il s'agira notamment de i) renforcer la nouvelle unité Justice pour les enfants au sein du Ministère de la justice, chargée de réviser la législation et d'élaborer des politiques conformes aux normes internationales relatives aux droits de l'enfant; ii) investir dans la formation initiale et continue institutionnalisée des professionnels de la justice; iii) promouvoir les alternatives à la détention pour les enfants et les adolescents, en utilisant des innovations, en sensibilisant aux droits des adolescents et en renforçant la collaboration multidisciplinaire interministérielle, en impliquant les partenaires des ONG et du secteur privé. L’UNICEF appuiera aussi la création d’unités de police pilotes adaptées aux enfants afin de faire respecter les droits des enfants en contact avec la loi, y compris les victimes et les témoins de crimes. Afin de responsabiliser les adolescents, les garçons et les filles et d’empêcher leur association avec des groupes violents, un mécanisme pilote de prévention et de protection sera mis à l’essai dans une des régions les plus vulnérables de la Tunisie (le projet « Vers l’autonomisation des adolescents de Kasserine et la prévention contre leur association à des groupes violents », signé le 3 juillet 2018, est financé par le Gouvernement Néerlandais).

    Ainsi, pour faire face à ses besoins programmatiques, le bureau UNICEF Tunisie a décidé de recourir aux services d’une expertise nationale en termes de renforcement de l’Unité de Justice pour les enfants au sein du Ministère de la Justice.

    2. Objectifs et résultats attendus:

    La consultation vise l’amélioration de l’accès des enfants et adolescents à la justice et le renforcement des services pour la protection de l’enfance, y compris les interventions en faveur des enfants associés aux groupes violents.
