These efforts relate closely to the work of the UN’s peace and security pillar, and specifically the new resolutions A/RES/70/262 and S/RES/2282, which outline a new ambitious UN reform agenda and approach for peacebuilding that focusses on strengthening the UN’s ability to prevent the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of violent conflict. IOM is committed to advancing this agenda by incorporating the New Way of Working (NWOW) and ensuring that comprehensive approaches are adopted before, during and after conflict in support of global efforts to strengthen the humanitarian and development (and peace) nexus. To support this portfolio of work, IOM is seeking to engage a Programme Advisor (Peace and Security), based at its Headquarters (HQs) in Geneva, Switzerland and working in close coordination with the IOM Office to the UN, to provide overall programmatic and policy support to IOM’s work and institutional engagement on peace and security.

And we never give up.

Job Title:

Support to the GNC Capacity Building Project: Piloting of the gFSC/GNC Inter-cluster Training Package for Nutrition Outcomes

Place of Work:

Responsible for:

Facilitation of two joint GNC-gFSC inter-cluster Training package for nutrition outcomes for Nutrition, Food Security, WASH and Health Cluster Coordinators and partners.

Duration

June-August 2018 (approximately 24 working days)

Background

The concept of global clusters was adopted by the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) in September 2005 in recognition of the capacity gaps which often undermine the effectiveness of humanitarian assistance delivered to communities affected by emergencies. Cluster leads were identified for elven areas of activity with UNICEF the designated global lead for three clusters including Nutrition. UNICEF is also a lead for working group on Gender Based Violent and Child Protection, both of which falls under the Protection Cluster.

The aim of the global clusters is to “improve the predictability, timeliness and effectiveness of a comprehensive response to humanitarian crises” through strengthening partnerships between NGOs, international organizations, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and UN agencies. At country level it is anticipated that enhanced inter cluster collaboration will improve the quality of response by encouraging better prioritization of available resources and greater clarity in defining the division of labor and the roles and responsibilities of humanitarian actors in the response.

The Inter-cluster Nutrition Working Group (ICNWG) is a sub-working group of the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) and global Food Security Cluster (gFSC) that was established as a collaboration between the two clusters in 2012. Its overall goal is to contribute to safeguarding and improving the nutritional status of crisis affected populations, preventing a deterioration of the nutrition situation in at-risk population groups and enhancing the overall nutritional situation of the affected population. It aims to do this by providing technical direction, guidance and coordination solutions and by promoting a coherent multi-sectoral integrated approach to ensure good nutrition in humanitarian crises, with the needs of the affected population at the centre. In 2017-2018, the ICNWG embarked on step that supports the technical capacity of country stakeholders on nutrition-sensitive programming. A multi-cluster workshop with participation of global clusters, its partners and key stakeholders, was held in Geneva in June 2017, which led to the development of a training package on inter sectoral integration for cluster coordinators and cluster partners as the key audiences. This package defines the “how to” of multisectoral approach with Food Security, Nutrition, WASH and Health and the package of nutrition sensitive intervention that need to be delivered by those sectors in order to achieve a better Nutrition outcome.

These efforts relate closely to the work of the UN’s peace and security pillar, and specifically the new resolutions A/RES/70/262 and S/RES/2282, which outline a new ambitious UN reform agenda and approach for peacebuilding that focusses on strengthening the UN’s ability to prevent the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of violent conflict. IOM is committed to advancing this agenda by incorporating the New Way of Working (NWOW) and ensuring that comprehensive approaches are adopted before, during and after conflict in support of global efforts to strengthen the humanitarian and development (and peace) nexus. To support this portfolio of work, IOM is seeking to engage a Programme Advisor (Peace and Security), based at its Headquarters (HQs) in Geneva, Switzerland and working in close coordination with the IOM Office to the UN, to provide overall programmatic and policy support to IOM’s work and institutional engagement on peace and security.

    Job Title:

    Support to the GNC Capacity Building Project: Piloting of the gFSC/GNC Inter-cluster Training Package for Nutrition Outcomes

    Place of Work:

    Home based and two training locations in the field (Ethiopia and Nigeria).

    Reports to:

    Global Nutrition Cluster Coordinator

    Responsible for:

    Facilitation of two joint GNC-gFSC inter-cluster Training package for nutrition outcomes for Nutrition, Food Security, WASH and Health Cluster Coordinators and partners.

    Duration

    June-August 2018 (approximately 24 working days)

    Background

    The concept of global clusters was adopted by the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) in September 2005 in recognition of the capacity gaps which often undermine the effectiveness of humanitarian assistance delivered to communities affected by emergencies. Cluster leads were identified for elven areas of activity with UNICEF the designated global lead for three clusters including Nutrition. UNICEF is also a lead for working group on Gender Based Violent and Child Protection, both of which falls under the Protection Cluster.

    The aim of the global clusters is to “improve the predictability, timeliness and effectiveness of a comprehensive response to humanitarian crises” through strengthening partnerships between NGOs, international organizations, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and UN agencies. At country level it is anticipated that enhanced inter cluster collaboration will improve the quality of response by encouraging better prioritization of available resources and greater clarity in defining the division of labor and the roles and responsibilities of humanitarian actors in the response.

    The Inter-cluster Nutrition Working Group (ICNWG) is a sub-working group of the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) and global Food Security Cluster (gFSC) that was established as a collaboration between the two clusters in 2012. Its overall goal is to contribute to safeguarding and improving the nutritional status of crisis affected populations, preventing a deterioration of the nutrition situation in at-risk population groups and enhancing the overall nutritional situation of the affected population. It aims to do this by providing technical direction, guidance and coordination solutions and by promoting a coherent multi-sectoral integrated approach to ensure good nutrition in humanitarian crises, with the needs of the affected population at the centre. In 2017-2018, the ICNWG embarked on step that supports the technical capacity of country stakeholders on nutrition-sensitive programming. A multi-cluster workshop with participation of global clusters, its partners and key stakeholders, was held in Geneva in June 2017, which led to the development of a training package on inter sectoral integration for cluster coordinators and cluster partners as the key audiences. This package defines the “how to” of multisectoral approach with Food Security, Nutrition, WASH and Health and the package of nutrition sensitive intervention that need to be delivered by those sectors in order to achieve a better Nutrition outcome. The package is now ready for field testing and the ICNWG will pilot it in at least two cluster/sector countries as a part of its 2018 Joint Workplan and 2018 GNC Annual Workplan.

    The study builds on the existing Ecosystem and preliminary consultations with National Societies and the UNHCR. It defines the needs and the business scenarios, and proposes different types of solutions to significantly increase the successful search of missing persons by allowing to search through massive amount of identity records in databases which are currently built in silo. In a second stage, a project will build models and define search algorithms that capture a wide range of humanitarian operations and analyze structured and unstructured data identity records (e.g. for missing persons or missing relatives) from multiple sources to match beneficiary data, extract trends and relevant humanitarian aid insights.

    • Contribute to other projects with a digital matching dimension (AMPM Platform)
    • Identify suitable technology for the solution.
    • Evaluate raw information as necessary; delve into data to discover discrepancies and matching patterns
    • Define the potential scope of the solution, identifying the dependencies with existing / future projects
    • Estimate the costs and needed resources; propose a timeline

     FULL TIME, Leyes / Abogados  Comments Off on Switzerland: 5 months consultant – Junior Project Officer (attacks on health care project)
    May 082018
     

    Organization: World Health Organization
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 14 May 2018

    Background

    Though health care personnel and facilities are being attacked around the world, data on such attacks on health care are not systematically collected and documented in a single repository or at a regional or global level. To understand the extent and nature of the issue, and its impact on public health, a single, standardized surveillance system is needed. Such information, made widely available, can inform national and global advocacy efforts and risk reduction interventions to stop attacks and mitigate their consequences to public health.

    WHO has the mandate to develop such a surveillance system. In 2012, the World Health Assembly adopted Resolution WHA65.20, which calls on WHO’s Director General to “provide leadership at the global level in developing methods for systematic collection and dissemination of data on attacks on health facilities, health workers, health transports, and patients in complex humanitarian emergencies, in coordination with other relevant UN bodies, other relevant actors and intergovernmental and nongovernmental organisations.”

    Purpose of the consultancy

    • Oversee the implementation of the surveillance system for Attaches on Health Care Project in 27 priority countries;
    • Coordinate one training workshop on the surveillance systems;
    • Travel to country offices for support mission in implementing the surveillance system;
    • Support country offices through weekly phone calls answering technical questions;
    • Interface with IT developers to add enhancements to the online system based on country office feedback
      work with the communication team to implement media campaign for the project;
    • Regularly communicate with partner organisation and project donors on the status of the project and for inter agency advocacy opportunities.

    Specific requirements

    Master in Public Health
    Experience required

    Previous experience working on Attacks on health care project
    Familiarity with data collection systems
    Language

    Expert knowledge of English

    How to apply:

    Covering letter and detailed CV (including name and contact of 3 referees) to be sent before the deadline (14 May 2018) to Caroline Sharon AKOTH at sharonc@who.int

    The consultancy is expected to begin on 15 July 2018
