Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Closing date: 23 Oct 2018
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, hope
In the last few years, humanitarian crises have been constantly increasing and the capacity for UNICEF to respond timely and efficiently to support children in the direst situations largely depends on availability of funds.
Flexible and predictable resources are pivotal to deliver efficient and impactful humanitarian response.
National Committees (Natcoms) activate to raise funds from the private sector both for natural disasters and protracted crisis. Their capacity to mobilize fully flexible resources for humanitarian response has been identified as a crucial organizational priority, second best option after Regular resources.
How can you make a difference?
The purpose of this consultancy is to bring quality emergency funding front of mind to all National Committees (Natcoms).
As Natcoms respond to natural disasters as well as complex emergencies, different ways to raise quality and un-earmarked funding during emergencies will have been previously discussed and thought through to prioritize during moments of high pressure.
In close partnership with UNICEF teams PFP Geneva, Office of Emergency Programmes (EMOPS), Public Partnerships Division (PPD) and some selected Country Offices (COs), consultant must guide and influence Natcoms in raising additional and efficient resources to leverage the full potential of fundraising in emergencies.
PFP has the mandate to promote flexible and quality funds for UNICEF and this role directly contributes to increase of unrestricted emergency funds. The final report will describe the drive and progress made by different Natcoms to increase their capacity to contribute to the Global Humanitarian Thematic Fund. It will also include recommendations for the next steps on promoting and raising further quality funding.
