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 Future

UNICEF places a high priority on the availability of recent and reliable information with which to monitor the situation of children and women. Statistically sound and internationally comparable data are essential for developing evidence-based policies and programmes, as well as for monitoring countries’ progress toward national goals and global commitments, including the Sustainable Development Goals. UNICEF RO assists countries in collecting and analyzing data in order to fill data gaps for monitoring the situation of children and women through household large scale surveys (including not limited to MICS, DHS, VAC), smart surveys, KAP studies, etc. Those household survey initiatives enable countries to address needs of data in the areas of health, education, child protection, water and sanitation and HIV and AIDS.

In WCA region, many surveys and studies that use sample need to increasingly use current technology for data collection and processing. It is thus critical for the RO to have a roster of data processing experts who can provide colleagues and partners the required level of technical assistance on a timely basis and at the critical stages of the survey. To do so, UNICEF RO intends to create a roster of experienced consultants for Data processing.

How can you make a difference?

As part of UNICEF RO efforts to increase the quality of data collection to better monitor progress towards the SDGs and the KRCs, or as part of program related studies (baselines, sectorial surveys etc.), the WCA Regional office PM&E Section intends to create a roster of experienced The Data processing expert.

  • Create national capacity and CAPI community of practice for proper use and to ensure quality of data.

The experts who will qualify to be part of the roster will then be recruited by country offices or regional office sections for large scale surveys (MICS), sample based surveys (baseline surveys, etc. ) and studies or research work that uses small scale surveys.

Scope of work

So, he/she is expected to play a key role in support partners (in-country as well as remotely), implementing large scale or baseline surveys, in the following areas of work:

· Customization of the CAPI application

· Capacity development for the use of CSPro (Census and Survey Processing

System) software package for tablet data entry as well as data editing

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.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does - in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life - in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions - her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens - addressing inequity - not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also accelerating the equitable development of nations to attain SDG.

How can you make a difference?

This position has a strong impact on the representation of UNICEF publicly and to its stakeholders and governance bodies. The efficiency of this position will result in better reporting, increased information on indicators, and on more accuracy on work planning. The position will have a significant impact on the overall management of information to donors and stakeholders.

You will participate, contribute and support processes related to reporting on ongoing planning and reporting for the country office, develop and update the reporting framework and the databases on key performance indicators, assist the office in developing, implementation and aggregation of reporting, and contribute to the development of thematic and sector reports as required. You will also assist in the development of an internal system to aggregate and report on office performance through various government and donor frameworks. Improve the harmonization of the reporting system to deal with numerous organizational demands and standards and promote the ongoing improvement of the application of RBM practices and principles in the office through planning monitoring and reporting, sharing of lessons learned and good practices.

Nutrition Specialist, P-3. Cotonou, BENIN. Imis # 58660

Tue, 02 Jun 2020 18:16:02 +0000

Country: Benin
Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 17 Jun 2020

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, UNICEF needs a champion in nutrition.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, nutrition, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

Health & Nutrition Specialist, (P3), Rabat, Morocco #112186

Vacancy Announcement - “Health & Nutrition Specialist P3”

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, health

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

HON 05-2020: Contratista Indivdiual- Apoyo a actividades M & E de la Oficina de UNICEF en Honduras

Tue, 02 Jun 2020 15:16:02 +0000

Country: Honduras
Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 15 Jun 2020

I. ANTECEDENTES

La misión fundamental de UNICEF es promover los derechos de todos los niños y niñas en todas partes, especialmente de aquellos más desfavorecidas y excluidos. El enfoque de equidad que UNICEF promueve significa que todos los niños tengan la oportunidad de sobrevivir, desarrollarse y alcanzar su pleno potencial, sin discriminación, prejuicio o favoritismo. En la medida en que cualquier niño tiene una probabilidad desigual en la vida - en dimensiones sociales, políticas, económicas, culturales y cívicas - sus derechos son violados. Por esta razón, el enfoque en la equidad es tan vital, pues se acelera el progreso hacia el cumplimiento de los derechos humanos de todos los niños, que es el mandato universal de UNICEF, como se indica en la Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño.

UNICEF apoya al Estado de Honduras a lograr este objetivo bajo el marco de su Programa de Cooperación 2017-2021, el cual se ajusta a las prioridades nacionales establecidas en la Visión Nación, el Plan Estratégico de Gobierno 2018-2022 y contribuye a 6 de los 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo sostenible, y 4 de los resultados establecidos en el Marco de Asistencia de las Naciones Unidas (UNDAF) para Honduras.

El Programa de Cooperación 2017-2021 está estructurado alrededor de cuatro componentes: a) el desarrollo de la primera infancia, b) la educación inclusiva y de calidad, c) la protección de los niños contra la violencia, y d) la inclusión social y la vigilancia de los derechos del niño. Para implementarlo se desarrollarán estrategias de nivel nacional y local.

A nivel nacional se hace hincapié en la generación de evidencia y la gestión del conocimiento para la formulación y evaluación de políticas públicas relacionadas con los niños y adolescentes, el cambio de las normas sociales que violan los derechos de los niños, orientada a los resultados de presupuestos y la coordinación entre organismos para la consolidación de un sistema de protección de los derechos de la niñez hondureña. A nivel local, 37 municipios han sido priorizados para el modelado de sistemas locales de protección de los derechos del niño para luego poder replicar la experiencia a nivel nacional. Este modelo incluye la gestión interinstitucional y el empoderamiento de los niños y adolescentes para una participación efectiva en el desarrollo de las agendas políticas, el control social y el diálogo constructivo con las autoridades. La priorización territorial tuvo en cuenta las vulnerabilidades particulares de acuerdo a diferentes criterios: un pobre desarrollo de la primera infancia, la violencia, la pobreza multidimensional, la presencia concentrada de los pueblos indígenas y afro-hondureños, y la extrema vulnerabilidad a los desastres naturales.

Los procesos de monitoreo de la situación de la niñez y la evaluación de las políticas públicas y modelos de intervención son centrales en UNICEF, especialmente en el marco de una intervención piloto cuya efectividad necesita ser evidenciada para luego promover su réplica. En un contexto de recursos limitados y de una pandemia como el COVID19 que ha resultado en restricciones de movilidad y un fuerte impacto no solo sanitario, sino que social y económico, el desarrollo de la capacidad para innovar es esencial para llevar a cabo el trabajo de M&E. En este sentido, se debe:

  • Por un lado, buscar formas innovadoras en la recopilación y análisis de datos de las poblaciones afectadas por la exclusión social y la pandemia, beneficiarias y no beneficiarias de los programas promovidos desde UNICEF. Esto implica el logro de la participación de los titulares de los derechos, el desarrollo de metodologías apropiadas y, a veces el uso de las nuevas tecnologías de la información[1].
  • Por el otro lado, gestionar el conocimiento disponible para identificar la situación de los niños y para encontrar soluciones innovadoras a situaciones de desigualdades en el cumplimiento de los derechos del niño. Se trata de contribuir a construir una evidencia sólida de soluciones innovadoras para la réplica.

Por ello, la Oficina de UNICEF en Honduras busca el perfil de un profesional con experiencia en M&E, aplicación de nuevas tecnologías para la recolección de información y procesamiento de datos para que apoye actividades M&E.

II. OBJETIVO DE LA CONSULTORÍA

Apoyar a la Oficina en procesos de M&E en el marco de la implementación de su Programa de Cooperación y de la respuesta a situaciones humanitarias como el COVID19, proveyendo conocimientos y asistencia técnica a los equipos de programa de UNICEF y sus principales socios en las siguientes áreas: recolección y procesamiento de datos, análisis estadístico, identificación y desarrollo de innovaciones para llevar a cabo procesos de monitoreo y desarrollo de capacidades en M&E, con especial atención en la participación de los portadores de derechos para poder realizar rendición de cuentas con las poblaciones afectadas.

III. FUNCIONES Y/O RESPOSABILIDADES PRINCIPALES

  • Apoyar en el diseño e implementación de esquemas de monitoreo innovadores para las iniciativas implementadas por los programas de primera infancia, educación, protección, inclusión social y la respuesta ante emergencias.

  • Elaborar un cronograma mensual de actividades y productos a entregar en el tiempo establecido para la consultoría.
