Education Specialist - ERT (P-4), FT, # 00103435, Education Section, PD, NYHQ

Sat, 04 Apr 2020 00:33:01 +0000

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 18 Apr 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, education.

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.

UNICEF’s Emergency Response Team (ERT) exists to provide coordinated, strategic emergency expertise to UNICEF country offices to assist them prepare for and mobilize rapid response to new or suddenly deteriorating humanitarian situations. The ERT adds value to UNICEF’s global strategic thinking on improving humanitarian operations and systems, through its practical multi-disciplinary experience operating in a wide range of current emergencies.

Consultancy: Support to CDC CoAg Grant Management, HIV/AIDS Section, PD - NYHQ, Req #531015

Fri, 03 Apr 2020 21:33:01 +0000

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 18 Apr 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.

BACKGROUND

Effective partnerships are critical to maximizing PEPFAR’s limited resources and ultimately achieving HIV epidemic control. UNICEF at global level helps to guide the global response. CDC and UNICEF Headquarters have partnered formally through 3 cooperative agreements since 2009.

POSITION DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND

The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) is the office within USAID that is responsible for providing emergency non-food humanitarian assistance in response to international crises and disasters. OFDA is part of the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA) and is organized into six divisions.

The Africa (AFD) Response Division and the Asia, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East (ALE) Response Division are responsible for the provision of emergency humanitarian assistance through a grants mechanism to non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international organizations including United Nations (UN) agencies and to other partners to ensure the implementation and delivery of this assistance. These divisions also oversee OFDA’s non-response efforts in disaster risk reduction and resilience. AFD and ALE Response Divisions also coordinate with other organizations for the provision of relief supplies and assistance. They devise, coordinate and implement program strategies for a variety of natural and complex disaster situations. Both Divisions encompass groups of operations specialists who provide technical expert capability in assessing the quality and strategic function of disaster response and risk reduction activities. The AFD Response Division is divided into two teams: East and Central Africa (ECA), and Southern, West, and North Africa (SWAN). The ALE Response Division is divided into four teams: East Asia and the Pacific (EAP), Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia (EMCA), Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), and South Asia (SA).

The Operations (OPS) Division develops and manages operations for OFDA’s disaster responses by readying people and systems; projecting U.S. Government (USG) humanitarian capacity quickly into the field; and delivering material and technical assistance. The OPS Division maintains readiness to respond to emergencies through several mechanisms, including managing Urban Search and Rescue Teams, coordinating, staffing, training, and equipping Disaster Assistance Response Teams (DARTs), and Washington-based Response Management Teams (RMTs), and stockpiling emergency relief commodities in key locations around the globe to ensure OFDA’s capacity to execute and coordinate USG humanitarian assistance and response to natural disasters and complex emergencies. The OPS Division provides technical guidance and expertise in Disaster Logistics, Urban Search and Rescue, Operations Center management, activation/readiness, Civil-Military Liaison, and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive Consequence Management. It also provides overseas support to OFDA offices and personnel and to other sectors necessary to ensure OFDA’s capacity to execute and coordinate USG humanitarian assistance and response to natural disasters and complex emergencies. The OPS Division is divided into four teams: the Disaster Assistance Support Program (DASP), Military Liaison Team (MLT), Operations Support Team (OST), and Overseas Administration Team (OAT).

The Program Support (PS) Division provides operational management support, including general administration, budget and financial services, procurement planning, information technology, human resources management including staff care, and contract and grant administration support to OFDA. The PS Division supports OFDA's mandate by providing innovative solutions in the areas of Information Technology, staffing, funds control, budgeting, human resource management, and procurement to facilitate timely disaster responses. The PS Division is divided into four teams: the Award, Audit, and Risk Management (AARM) Team, Human Resources Management (HRM) Team, Budget, Finance, and Information Technology (BFIT) Team, and the Acquisition and Management (ACQ) Team.

The Preparation, Strategic Planning and Mitigation (PSPM) Division is responsible for the technical oversight of all OFDA response and mitigation programs, as well as preparation for response, mitigation, and disaster risk reduction activities. The PSPM Division houses technical experts in all sectors potentially affected by disasters and leads the Agency in developing and promoting best practices for programming in these specific sectors. In addition, PSPM will be the focal point for technological innovations for humanitarian assistance in areas such as monitoring and evaluation, assessment, and information management. The PSPM Division is divided into four teams: Cross-Cutting Sectors Team, Natural Hazards Team, Health Team, and the Food Security and Livelihoods Team.

The Humanitarian Policy and Global Engagement (HPGE) Division assists the DCHA front office, the OFDA Director and OFDA Deputy Director with tracking trends and policy developments in the humanitarian assistance field. It engages in policy dialogue with other parts of USAID, the USG interagency, other donors, multilateral agencies, and NGO partners; recommends strategies for action to DCHA; initiates development of policy and internal guidance for OFDA; maintains global relationships with implementing partners, other donors, and the broader humanitarian architecture; and engages with the UN to advance USG humanitarian policy objectives and promote humanitarian principles within the USG and internationally. The HPGE Division leads OFDA's communications and social media outreach to effectively communicate OFDA’s story to a variety of strategic audiences. It serves as the office’s primary interlocutor on strategic issues with other federal partners to provide guidance to OFDA on policy issues pertaining to the interagency, and to improve USG humanitarian coordination and response during large-scale crises. The HPGE Division staff manages global programs, policy and outreach, strategic communications, and interagency training and engagement. HPGE is divided into seven teams: Policy Team, Global Programs Team, Strategic Interagency Team, Strategic Communications Team, Global Capacity and Leadership Development Team, Public-Private Engagement Team, and the United States Mission to the UN (USUN) in New York, Geneva, and Rome.

While the BIG Project Team will work on the design and implementation plans, there is the need to create re-activate the work of the Operations Management Team (OMT), an inter-agency mechanism for the BOS that can provide long term operational ownership, support, and quality assurance to the UNCTs.

The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Mexico, through the Operations Management Team (OMT), is in the process of finalizing the new United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for 2020-2024 (UNSDCF).

In line with the development of the new cooperation framework and the UN Reform, the UNCT and OMT Mexico seek to strengthen their efforts in harmonizing business operations to reduce operational transaction costs and duplication in the delivery of high-quality operational support services to their Programmes throughout the current and the new cooperation framework period. Based on the previous (preliminary) analysis conducted in 2016 and based on the UN Reform, it is envisaged to develop a comprehensive and effective Business Operations Strategy (BOS) to support and ensure that the implementation of the UNSCDF is supported.

The UNCT and OMT Mexico also seek to promote the principles of equality and non-discrimination, putting gender equality at the heart of UNDAF programming, driving the active and meaningful participation of both women and men, and the empowerment of all women and girls, including through the operational activities in the country in line with the UNCT-SWAP Gender Equality Scorecard 2019 Action Plan on Organizational Culture and Gender Parity.

Objective

The BOS provides a framework to guide UN business operations at the country level and facilitates strategic planning, management, monitoring and reporting of the UNCT’s joint support to the Programme and supports the development of harmonized Business Operations to achieve the following results:

  • Effective and cost-efficient delivery of Programme activities;
  • An integrated implementation plan linking Programmes and Operations;
  • Reduced transactional costs through strengthened harmonization and coherence mechanisms within the UN System;
  • Simplified operations procedures to enhance cost reductions;
  • Develop mechanisms and tools for Improved planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting of the UN’s interagency business operations through the use of measurable targets and indicators;
  • Formulation of innovative approaches to the operations of the UNSDCF and Country Programmes;
  • Coordination mechanism between UNSDCF and BOS both at design and implementation stage.
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis of the inter-agency operations
  • Analysis on the feasibility to implement back-offices in the country.

Expected results

Under the overall leadership and guidance of the Operations Management Team and the direct supervision of the UN Coordination Officer, UN Mexico seeks the services of a consultant who will contribute to the overall design and development of the new generation BOS (2020-2024).

Délégué de la Fondation Médecins du Monde (H/F) - Paris

Fri, 03 Apr 2020 15:23:00 +0000

Country: France
Organization: Médecins du Monde
Closing date: 14 Jun 2020

Médecins du Monde, association médicale militante de solidarité internationale, s'engage depuis 40 ans à soigner les populations les plus vulnérables ici et là-bas, à témoigner des entraves constatées quant à l’accès aux soins, à obtenir des améliorations durables des politiques de santé pour tous. Association indépendante, nous agissons au-delà du soin en dénonçant les atteintes à la dignité et aux droits humains et en nous battant pour améliorer la situation des populations précaires.

En France comme à l’international dans plus de 35 pays, nos actions ont pour but de faciliter l’accès au système de santé en travaillant sur 5 thématiques prioritaires structurant nos combats et nos plaidoyers : urgences et crises, santé sexuelle et reproductive, réduction des risques, migrations, droits et santé et santé-environnement.

La Fondation Médecins du Monde, créée fin 2014 par Médecins du Monde et trois grands donateurs individuels et placée sous égide la Fondation de France, a une triple mission :

  • Le soutien à la structuration et la pérennisation des ONG locales, partenaires de MdM, en France et à l’international
  • Le financement de la recherche en santé humanitaire et de la formation des acteurs
  • La promotion et la diffusion de l’innovation
    Elle a vocation à soutenir activement la stratégie partenariale de l’association MdM ainsi que la stratégie de recherche de l’association, en en faisant la promotion et en finançant des actions ad hoc.
    Elle s’appuie sur 3 métiers : collecte de fonds, redistribution de subventions et communication.

Au 29 février 2020, elle a distribué 1.3M€ de subventions.

Elle a fait de la santé et des droits des femmes une priorité.

Par ailleurs, elle permet à Médecins du Monde de consolider sa position dans un univers philanthropique de plus en plus présent dans les secteurs humanitaire et associatif.

Son modèle de développement lors de sa création était fondé sur l’activation de donateurs de Médecins du Monde, auxquels elle proposait une offre de défiscalisation de l’impôt sur la fortune.
En 2018, la suppression de l’ISF a réduit de 2/3 la collecte des fondations, d’autant plus impactées qu’elles avaient focalisé leurs messages de collecte sur cet avantage fiscal.
La Fondation Médecins du Monde a revu sa stratégie de collecte en 2018 et a proposé de collecter des fonds auprès de très grands donateurs, ayant une capacité de dons de plus de 10 000€ par an, qui est un segment de collecte à fort potentiel. Cette stratégie et son portage par la Fondation MdM ont été validés par le CD stratégique de MdM le 19 octobre 2018.

ALIMA en RCA

Le District sanitaire de Haut-Mbomou est situé dans la préfecture du Haut-Mbomou, à l’extrême sud-est de la RCA. Selon les données du District Sanitaire, il couvre une population estimée à 79 044 habitants en 2019, répartis sur 4 sous-préfectures : Obo, Zémio, Djémah et Bambouti. A cela s’ajoute, un mouvement pendulaire d’environ 9 000 personnes entre la RDC et la préfecture du Haut-Mbomou.

Suite aux affrontements et la recrudescence des violences intercommunautaire en 2017, Mboki est très affecté par cette situation. Des mouvements de population de Mboki vers Obo ont été constatés. La ville de Mboki est marquée par l’absence de représentant des autorités et la forte présence des groupes armées pouvant s’y affronter. Cela entraînant l’isolation de Mboki, en effet les axes routiers sont très peu utilisés notamment par les populations locales. Cette situation est le reflet de la situation sécuritaire de Mboki et ses alentours. A cela s’ajoute une situation humanitaire alarmante, puisque la présence et la possibilité d’accès des acteurs humanitaires dans la zone sont très limitées. La préfecture du Haut-Mbomou, est l’une des préfectures avec un des niveaux les plus élevés de prévalence et sévérité de l’insécurité alimentaire (rapport HNO, mars 2019).

Considérant ce contexte humanitaire comportant des besoins urgents et prioritaires, Alima s’est positionnée depuis le mois d’Ao슩t 2019 avec un financement CHF dans l’appui de l’hôpital secondaire de Zemio et trois Fosas.

Dans le cadre de son projet RELSUD, Alima a lancé un projet dans l’appui de deux hôpitaux du district sanitaire de Haut Mbomou (Hôpital de district d’Obo et l’hôpital secondaire de Zemio) dont le début effectif était au mois de novembre 2019 avec un objectif de réduire la mortalité et la morbidité à travers l’amélioration de l’offre et de l’accès aux soins de santé de qualité des populations par le renforcement du dit district.

According to USAID, positive youth development (PYD) engages youth along with their families, communities and/or governments so that youth are empowered to reach their full potential. PYD approaches build skills, assets and competencies; foster healthy relationships; strengthen the environment; and transform systems. Multiple scientific studies have found that high levels of developmental strengths result later in life in (a) lessened risk behaviors; (b) increased academic achievement; (c) increased contributions to school and community; and (d) higher levels of other thriving indicators. By examining a set of defined competencies by youth engaged in USAID/Jordan programs, and retrospectively collecting stories of education and training, leadership and civic engagement, and employment outcomes, USAID/Jordan can better support Jordanian youth realize their potential, grow as healthy adults and be able to contribute effectively to the social, political, and economic development of their country.

USAID/Jordan has supported many programs/interventions for youth ages 10-29 years through the Education and Youth Office, Democracy and Governance, Economic Development and Health Offices. The strategic focus of the USAID/Jordan education and youth development portfolio is to improve the quality of Jordanian education and services offered to youth through interventions targeting youth learning and skills development practices. These interventions aim at minimizing rote learning, promoting learner-centered approaches, developing skills central to a vibrant private sector and well-governed public institutions, and nurture an educational environment that is conducive to practicing critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and respect for others. Supporting youth civic engagement empowers youth to take an active role in their communities, take part in decision making as well as help promote good citizenship.

Project Objective:

The Retrospective Youth Study will aim to deepen USAID/Jordan’s understanding of youth participant outcomes in the last 10 years and focus on participants aged 10-29 years at the time of the intervention. The study will “look back” and engage previous participants and alumni of youth who have engaged in USAID interventions, and collect stories of “developmental transformations” or positive change. This would entail locating a cohort of youth graduates from previous USAID activities, and inviting them to participate in this study. This study will also examine the acquisition and utilization developmental competencies that youth graduates have acquired that they cite as transformative, and/or key to positive outcomes in their personal, professional, or civic life, such as self-efficacy, self-esteem, leadership, community engagement, and civic participation.

The findings will improve USAID’s understanding of effective youth development practices with regard to specific sub-populations, such as lower-income young women living in urban areas or young men with lower education attainment living in camps, dropouts, etc. The positive youth development (PYD) model will be used as a framework for defining effective youth development activities, and a framework for identifying the developmental competencies examined in this study will be developed during the scoping mission phase in coordination the Jordan Mission staff. Existing models such as the 21st Century Skills Competencies and other PYD models will be used as starting points.

Most importantly, the retrospective youth study will shed light on the sources of resilience and positive choices made by vulnerable and at-risk youth, sources of motivation toward productive engagement in their communities, and also effective ways of harnessing support of their families and communities over time. An improved understanding of what works in ensuring sustained positive engagement of vulnerable and at-risk young people in Jordan will result in more effective programming and sustained intervention results.

The proposed objectives of this study are as follows:

  1. Collect data and stories of “developmental transformations” (positive change) from participants of USAID-supported youth activities over the last 10 years in multiple sectors. The stories will focus on education and employment outcomes, developmental competency acquisition and utilization, leadership, community and civic engagement, and other outcomes related to USAID development objectives. The cohort from whom the stories and data will be collected will be made up of former and current youth participants of USAID-supported activities with a minimum rate of participation to be established during the scoping phase.
  2. With direct participation by youth and other stakeholders, analyze the data and stories collected to determine the most significant developmental transformations that produced positive outcomes in education and training, employment, leadership, or civic and community engagement, and catalogue the perceived barriers to youth achieving their personal, educational, and professional goals.
  3. Produce conclusions and recommendations that guide USAID in designing and supporting future youth development activities in Jordan.
