Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 24 Sep 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

National Committees for UNICEF are an integral part of UNICEF’s global organization. Currently there are 33 National Committees in the world, each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF in industrialized countries, National Committees work tirelessly to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.

National Committees collectively raise around one-third of UNICEF’s annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organizations and more than 6 million individual donors worldwide. They also rally many different partners—including the media, national and local government officials, other NGOs, specialists such as doctors and lawyers, corporations, schools, young people and the public—on issues related to children’s rights.

In 2009, the community of National Committees adopted a set of Principles of Good Governance. The objective of the Principles is to enable robust governance in National Committees as a condition for achieving results, by increasing effectiveness and efficiency, ethics, transparency and accountability, and ensuring a well-considered risk and control environment is in place.

The Governance Team in UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division leads UNICEF’s strategic work on implementing the Principles and works with boards and executive management in each National Committee to convert the Principles into action and results.

    Switzerland: Consultancy – support in community based protection methodology manual

     Diseño Grafico, FULL TIME, Servicio al Cliente  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy – support in community based protection methodology manual
    Aug 252018
     

    Organization: International Committee of the Red Cross
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 31 Aug 2018

    1. Background

    The ICRC applies community-based approaches – underpinned by the “do no harm” principle – in various ways to reinforce the operational relevance, effectiveness and impact of its activities across different programmes. Specifically for the Protection Division, the aim of the activities undertaken is to strengthen communities’ resilience and to better respond to the perceived or actual threats often linked to an armed conflict or other situations of violence.

    In line with the ICRCs Institutional Strategy 2019-2022 that states *“f**acilitating the meaningful participation of affected people and ensuring they have space and agency within the humanitarian response is critical in addressing their situation. It will require time,** new approaches, practical tools and techniques to make a difference***…, the Protection of Civilian Populations unit is producing a Community-Based Protection (CBP) Manual.

    First developed in 2011, the CBP methodology and approach has evolved substantially adapting to challenges and lessons learned. The methodology today builds upon the initial risk reduction activities to ensure that the ICRC response is driven by communities’ priorities and is inclusive.

    Over the past 3 years, the CBP team has trained nearly 600 colleagues in 24 delegations based on this updated methodology, but it is currently spread out in many documents and separate tools. To ensure continuity of the trainings and expand the ICRCs response in this area there is a need to have a manual that provides practical guidance on how to roll out the CBP approach (the methodology), and that highlights the community issues the ICRC has addressed within the frame of its humanitarian response (the practice).

    2. Purpose of the CBP Manual

    While today there exist external reference documents on CBP, the ICRC uses a more simplified and practical tool so to ensure continued and extended operationalization of the approach in contexts affected by the conflict.

    This manual will thus be mainly addressed to field colleagues of the ICRC as well as those of partner humanitarian organizations (Movement National Societies) who are directly interacting with communities and people affected by the conflict. However as the CBP approach requires engagement of the coordination and management teams, it will also address their specific roles in a successful deployment. This manual will not be designed for ICRC CBP trainers who have already been integral in developing the current methodology and practice; additional materials for these individuals will be considered in 2019.

    3. Consultancy scope and focus

    The main objective is to produce the final version of the CBP manual. The majority of the work will be comprised of taking the existing tools and knowledge and adequately translating them into a manual format. This will require building on the CBP team’s current work and developing further the analysis from the CBP workshops and ICRC responses to the population. The writer will also be responsible to coordinate the review process amongst subject-matter experts/colleagues and ensure comments are adequately addressed into the final version. The consultant will work closely with the CBP Advisor and Associate based in the ICRC Geneva HQ, as well as the regional CBP Advisors based in Dakar and Bogota and more generally the Protection of Civilian Populations Unit (CIV), management and other thematic advisors.

    4. Authority and responsibility

    The consultant is responsible for producing the deliverables within the established timeframe of the consultancy, the authority of which is the ICRC’s own.

    5. Deliverables

    Under the supervision of the CBP advisor the consultant is expected to:

    • Consolidate the manual according to the agreed plan with the team;

    • Ensure the lay-out and design of the manual is appropriate for its purpose;

    • Finalize the writing of key sections in the following chapters: Introduction; People-centered programming; Designing the response; and, Risk-reduction activities.

    • Lead the review process; and,

    • Provide editing and fact checking of the Manual.

    6. Timeline

    The consultancy will be comprised of two phases:

    1. Finalizing of initial draft (during October/November)

    Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading

    UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and

    non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

    Context:

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION

    The Migrant Protection and Assistance Division (MPA), situated in IOM’s Headquarters (HQs), has the institutional responsibility for providing strategic and policy support, technical guidance, and other necessary resources to support field missions in the areas of protection and assistance to migrants in vulnerable situations (AVM), counter-trafficking (CT), and assisted voluntary return and reintegration (AVRR). Through its presence in each region MPA also aims to address critical gaps in protection and migration management among states through capacity building, direct assistance and data and information management to support evidence-based advocacy, policy-making, and programming.

    MPA provides protection and assistance to hundreds of thousands of migrants every year, including trafficked persons, smuggled migrants with protection needs, migrants in irregular situations, stranded migrants, unaccompanied and separated migrant children, and migrants subjected to violence, exploitation or abuse.

    In the context of MPA’s information management strategy, IOM’s global migrant case management application (MiMOSA) is being upgraded and expanded to ensure that all individuals assisted have their case data systematically stored and managed through a centralized, standardized application which allows unique cases to be tracked across different countries and access points. Inter alia, the systems expansion will include the development of a mobile application to reach challenging operational contexts, including Migrant Resource and Response Mechanisms (MRRMs), detention facilities, border points, boat disembarkation points, and other difficult field locations.

    The system expansion will focus in its first phase on countries targeted by the EU funded “EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration” (hereinafter “the Joint Initiative”) to ensure its adaptation and use also in challenging operational contexts, before being deployed to further regions in due course. By improving the collection, management and analysis of migrant protection and assistance data the MPA Division aims to make workflows smarter and more efficient in addition to rapidly developing the evidence base for migrant protection and assistance policy and programming.

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 24 Aug 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, Protection

    Background

    Whether in natural disasters, complex emergencies, famine or disease, UNICEF has been a reliable emergency responder since its creation. This has been made possible through its extensive sectoral expertise in health, nutrition, WASH, education, child protection, and gender, as well as through strong communication and an agility in adopting innovative approaches and systems in meeting its mandate.

    UNICEF welcomed the spirit of the “Grand Bargain” and the ambition to better assess the needs of populations affected by humanitarian crisis. As such, UNICEF have been linking the associated work streams on joint and impartial needs assessments, accountability to affected populations and localization. This was done largely to the fact that needs of affected populations are traditionally assessed through one large needs assessment before the creation of the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO). This normally takes place in the summer months with quite a large piece of work undertaken to manage and analyze the information. The focus of the humanitarian community is then placed on translating those needs into Strategic Objectives of the response through the creation of a Humanitarian Response Plan.

    During the implementation phase, focus is primarily on monitoring results against the original needs identified and less on any change of those. However, in most situations, the emergency evolves and the needs of affected populations change.

    Inter-agency work at the global level is currently taking place around joint needs analysis to be conducted under the Inter Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG) at the field level. Such analysis requires a continuous feed of information to analyze. Given this and the heavy process of one off needs assessments, there is a demand to build an ongoing approach to the identification of needs. Such an approach will enable both sectorial joint needs and response analysis to take place at the country level. This consultancy will contribute to these efforts by crafting a framework with a flexible methodology that will ensure a feed of information throughout the program cycle. The work will closely coordinate with existing initiatives and groups such as the Global Cluster Coordinators Group (GCCG), JIAG, and the HPC review working groups.

    How can you make a difference?

    The purpose of this consultancy is to create a common methodology on the continuous needs identification and data interpretation to enable ongoing joint needs analysis. The joint needs analysis work is currently being undertaken by the GCCG, under the leadership of the Food Security Cluster.

    This methodology should ensure the inclusiveness, complementarity, and use of data as per below:

    Data usefulness: Data sources produced with a minimum level of reliability and sound methodology should be considered as valid data entries within the framework. These sources include, but are not limited to: assessments, need monitoring, the use of proxy indicators, key informant networks, and other unorthodox means to identify needs. The framework should be able to define how each of the information sources should be considered.

    Data complementarity: The methodology framework should ensure that conflicting datasets can be comparable (i.e. aggregating or disaggregating datasets for ensuring unit of analysis comparability).

    Context-based tailored approach: The Framework should represent a methodological approach with the capability to adapt to different contexts and realities. The methodology produced under this consultancy should be applicable in all types of operations, including protracted and sudden onset emergencies as well as low capacity operations.

    Moreover, the methodology framework should take into consideration the following three pillars:

    Technical – The pillar which focus on the information management component. In this directly connected with the work with IMOs and technical staff applying the key technical approaches chosen for the framework. The technical pillar requires a strong command on IM and how these tools can be adapted, or tailored, to the in country different realities and pre-existing capacities.

    Coordination – A second pillar defined to ensure that the technical IM tools/analysis and the sectoral data interpretation, prioritization and operational planning and response options are kept aligned during the overall process. This pillar involves constant coordination and exchange with the wide array of stakeholders participating in the framework.

    Decision making at operational and strategic levels – This third pillar addresses the critical step on how to make use of the framework findings to facilitate an evidence-based decision making process which will immediately impact and guide the response. In the framework, this pillar will provide tools, adaptable approaches and guidance-including advocacy-to the technical and coordination ones-on how they can successfully contribute to the decision-making, and involving a strong consensus-building component showcasing the benefits of working under the integrated approach of the framework, instead of pursuing stand-alone ones.

    Duration: Estimated 120 days between September/October 2018 to February/March 2019

    Location: home-based in Geneva area with frequent interaction with the UNICEF-led clusters

    Deliverables

    The consultancy will have the following deliverables:

  • An inventory of existing and currently applied data collection methodologies and a comparative analysis of these as a foundation for the review and framing of information sources (deliverable 2).
  • Review and framing of information sources-under the basis of complementarity and comparability- used by UNICEF-led clusters / AoR as well as other stakeholders to identify needs of affected populations. This review and framing will include all types of information sources, developmental, humanitarian as well as others.
  • Using the review, create a methodological framework-following the above-mentioned pillars – for a continuous identification and joint analysis of needs and response that is applicable to the entire humanitarian system respecting the already existing sectoral analytical frameworks and sector specific data use protocols (i.e. use of qualitative and quantitative data).
  • Create sector-specific parts with detailed SOPs on how to apply the framework for UNICEF-led Clusters / AoR (WASH, Nutrition, Child Protection, and Education). SOPs will focus on how to analyze existing data allowing the sectors to make a better planning.
