Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Closing date: 12 Apr 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.
The global Child Protection Area of Responsibility (AoR) is the global level forum for coordination of child protection activities in humanitarian settings as part of the broader Global Protection Cluster (GPC). The group brings together NGOs, UN agencies, academics and other partners under the shared objective of ensuring more predictable, accountable and effective child protection responses in emergencies. The mandate of the CP AoR is to ensure quality and coverage of child protection services through inter agency coordination, headed by UNICEF, the cluster lead agency.
The Child Protection AoR, along with Nutrition, Wash and Education clusters, provides a help desk function to augment deployable field support. Remote support is provided to members of coordination groups on technical issues, linking practitioners to resources and peer to peer support. CP AoR Annual Surveys in 2016 and 2017 of field level coordination groups indicate consistently high levels of appreciation for the outreach and support.
Since the inception of the role, there have been significant refinements and advancements in the role. Recently instigated tracking of requests is being compiled in a quarterly update to identify global gaps in technical guidance and direct resources to locations most in need in order to boost efficiency. The help desk is then able to rapidly initiate a process of developing interim guidance to fill the gap. This was done, for example in 2017, in response to an identified gap in guidance for mobile programming, relevant to settings of mass displacement due to conflict. Responding in such a way is critical to UNICEF meeting cluster lead responsibilities and demonstrating leadership.
Advancements have also included the establishment of language specific sub help desks to reach colleagues at regional levels who make up the majority of coordination groups, working in languages other than English. This is critical to reach local actors who are providing the majority of services. Arabic, Spanish and French help desks are being established, housed in local organizations and linked to UNICEF regional offices, for example in Colombia and Lebanon. This represents a global-led initiative to extend the reach and support of child protection services.
The Global Help Desk will continue responding to global requests directly, which account for 25% of requests received. In addition day-to-day coaching and technical support will be provided to the regional help desks on all requests received, with due to significantly increase in terms of both number of countries as well as those who can access this service. Currently, national-level Country Coordinators in HC and some early warning contexts access the help desk; however, the language-specific help desks will widen the target audience to CP Coordination Group members at the national and sub-national level (average 40- 60 WG members per country) and include additional early warning countries where there will be greater focus on preparedness. The Global Help Desk will also facilitate and follow up on global referrals from language-specific help desks to global networks.
2. Expected results:
The purpose of this consultancy is to consolidate the position of the established Help Desk within the global level CP AoR team to provide field based child protection coordinators and coordination groups with technical assistance, mentoring, training and knowledge management services. Greater results and impact are expected as the help desk moves to a new level of global coverage and technical support, including rapid response to technical gaps identified through analysis, increased global reach to local actors, and an upgrade of communications mechanisms such as the UNICEF managed global website. The following expected results include details on tasks to be undertaken, although the evolving nature of this work and the high level of experience and expertise of the consultant may mean that, on the consultant’s or the CP AoR’s recommendation, tasks are modified or added, on mutual agreement.
PRIMARY RESPONSIBILIITIES AND DELIVERABLES
1. Engage the field-based coordinators and IMOs in peer to peer support, discussions and sharing of best practices through the Child Protection AoR Community of Practice (CoP)
2. Train, coach, mentor, and supervise four local help desks in day-to-day as well as longer-term functions, such as strategic planning and evaluation:
3. The Help Desk consultant will need to coordinate with a Web Design Consultant on revamping the existing Child Protection AoR website to promote greater user-friendliness, accessibility, and visibility of the CP AoR’s and UNICEF’s initiatives, products, and support to coordination groups. The new website is critical to ensure UNICEF delivers support services globally, including to local actors.
4. Support and/or manage the organization of high-quality training
5. Support to the 2018 Annual Survey work
6. Development of interim technical guidance when thematic global gap areas have been identified, while awaiting more formal guidance developed by the Alliance. This will be similar to the Mobile Programming Key Considerations developed in 2017 and involves collaboration with field-based coordination groups and language-specific help desks. This is critical to UNICEF fulfilling its role as cluster lead agency on child protection.
