Closing date: 03 Sep 2017

We are looking for an experienced Consultant to review existing training materials on durable solutions and adapt a training package suitable for the Syrian context, based on consultations with Syrian CSO’s in the region.

The search for durable solutions to the protracted displacement stemming from the Syrian crisis is a key humanitarian and development necessity for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). This search for durable solutions is a regional, cross-border issue and demands a multi-sectorial response that goes beyond the existing humanitarian agenda. The discussion around the options and rights of the displaced are highly politicised.

DRC, IRC, and NRC have recently established the Durable Solutions Platform (DSP). The objective of this platform is to generate knowledge and promote dialogue and strategic programme approaches to the long term future of Syrian refugees and internally displaced people based on international best practice and principles for preparing and supporting durable solutions for people in displacement.

The platform’s research assists NGOs in setting joint programmatic principles and strategies, continue advocacy work, develop guidance on mechanisms for cross border programming, and take this common approach for leverage with donors and stakeholders.

About the job

To involve the Syrian civil society into the discussion on solutions, the platform liaises with a network of Syrian civil society organizations. Among others, the platform engages Syrian civil society organizations in roundtable discussions and trainings around future durable solutions.

The package will consist of a 2-day training which the consultant will also deliver four times, in Arabic.

up to 4 months (@21.75days/month)

Starting date:

1-Sep-2017

OVERVIEW OF CTG GLOBAL

CTG support and manage humanitarian projects in fragile and conflict-affected countries around the world. With past performance in 15 countries – from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Central and South America – we offer a holistic fabric of project management, implementation and support. Skilled in emergency response to crises such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, we have the ability to act quickly (crisis response teams can be on the ground in 24 hours) and to establish structured operations in high-risk environments. CTG recruit and manage qualified, skilled teams with extensive experience operating in challenging conditions.

OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

Ministry of Planning, Investment & Economic Development (MOPIED) with OUR CLIENT support has completed developing a new National Development Plan (NDP), the first in a period of 30 years. The NDP has been formulated through an inclusive and transparent process while engaging sectoral ministries of the Federal Government, Puntland and the Emerging Federal States, civil society, parliament and academia as well as the international development partners. The plan sets up priorities for Somalia for the period 2017-2019 while at the same embedding the Sustainable Development Goals, adapting them to the national context, and is Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (iPRSP) complaint. It will include results frameworks which will set the vision, goals, desired strategic outcomes and specific annual targets required to achieve those outcomes.

As per decision announced at the HLPF meeting which took place in Mogadishu in December 2015, the National Development Plan builds upon the achievements to date in the implementation of the New Deal Compact, maintaining a slightly modified oversight, planning and coordination architecture as well as the link between political, security and development priorities. It also addresses the aid management and coordination, development effectiveness and New Deal principles for engagement in fragile states. It is a priority for the Federal Government of Somalia to ensure coherence and continuity between the expiring Somali Compact and the National Development Plan (NDP), both in terms of development and reconstruction priorities and of use of existing coordination structures, funding and implementation mechanisms.

The purpose of the National Development Plan is to provide guidance to national authorities, international partners and other stakeholders (private sector, civil societies and citizens at large) in Somalia as they shape a medium term strategic framework to build upon achievements of the past few years, further strengthen the Federal Member State structures, create a favorable environment for private and non-government sector development, and – importantly - bring the benefits of the development efforts to the citizens.

The National Development Plan has four key interrelated objectives:

• Articulate Government development priorities: to set out a clear vision for Somalia’s security, social and economic development priorities. In addition, to define the key state building and peace building priorities including democratic governance and align with the SGDs as much as possible.

• Provide a structure for resource allocation and management: to guide the NDP priorities within the annual budget allocations in 2017 and beyond

• Guide Development Partner support within the defined FGS priorities in the coming three years: in terms of structure and well defined funding priorities, whilst ensuring FGS leadership of the development agenda and existing and new development Trust Funds.

• Serve as an Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy for Somalia that is aligned with the global SDG initiative. The Plan also meets Somalia’s on-going commitments as set out in the Somalia Compact as reprioritized within the NDP.

The Federal Member States have developed or are in the process to develop their state level development plans, mostly aligned to the NDP. Also on state level, the Ministries of Planning are in the lead for these processes.

The mainstreaming of the SDGs into the NDP and the state development plans is reasonable but open for further improvement. In a parallel effort, the OUR CLIENT is supporting the M&E and statistics capacities of the Federal and State ministries to allow measurement of progress.

Where for the first time in over 30 years, development planning takes serious advances in Somalia, OUR CLIENT seeks to hire a national Planning and SDG consultant to support in the development of an implementation plan related to the NDP and State Development Plans and to streamline the support to the federal and state governments.

The national consultant will be based in Mogadishu and is expected to work closely with the Ministry of Planning, Investment & Economic Development as well as OUR CLIENT. He/she will work in full coordination with the international Planning and SDGs mainstreaming consultant and may be invited to participate in meetings, together with OUR CLIENT and/or the International Planning and SDGs mainstreaming consultant with UN actors, donors and/or national stakeholders.

GENERAL FUNCTIONS

Role objective:

The main objective of this assignment is to support the Federal Ministry of Planning, Investment and Economic Development as well as the State Ministries of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) develop well-articulated, coherent and realistic Implementation Plans for the NDP and State Strategic Plans as well as well articulated and realistic M&E plans to measure. Within these implementation plans and M&E arrangements, the SDG mainstreaming should be high on the agenda.

Development of Implementation Plans

The Somali National Development Plan is a transformative medium term plan that aims to transform Somalia over the medium to long term. It aims to generate average economic growth of 5.5% and increase per Capita income over the three-year period from $470 to $510. It will serve as a framework for the generation of resources to undertake large scale renovation of social and economic infrastructure to serve as a backbone for the recovery and growth of the country. To make this possible, the plan includes an elaborate set of results frameworks in all sectors of the economy. To make the results articulated in the Plan achievable, the results should be broken down into activities and projects that have clear timeframes and budgets.

SDGs Mainstreaming

The Government of Somalia is fully committed to the Sustainable Development Goals. And instead of developing a separate work stream to address the SDGs, a decision was made to mainstream the SDGs into each sector. An effort was made to align the goals, targets and indicators in the different sections of the NDP with the SDGs as adopted to the Somalia situation. The NDP also provides mechanisms for monitoring its implementation. In that regard, it provides a gender sensitive monitoring and evaluation strategy, a strategy for monitoring the effectiveness of the policies and programs in reducing poverty, and the current institutional arrangements for ensuring transparency and accountability in the use of public resources.

Development of M&E frameworks

It is commonly said that what gets measured gets done. The successful implementation of the National Development Plan depends, to a large extent, on putting in place a good M&E system to monitor and evaluate its implementation. Since the launch of the drafting process for the NDP, the MOPIED and International Development Partners established an M&E working group to act as a coordination platform for all efforts aimed at developing a results framework for the NDP. The establishment of this working group was premeditated based on the need to develop a framework that would make it possible to measure and monitor the degree to which the objectives/results of the NDP were being realized. A clear and comprehensive M&E framework would make it possible to determine beforehand what kind of data would be needed to measure achievement in the realization of NDP objectives, and hence put in place a system to consistently and systematically collect that data in a standardized manner. There are existing sector M&E plans and strategies from the line ministries that are currently being used to monitor and report on progress in the implementation of government programmes. However, all these needs to be sifted and integrated into the overall NDP M&E framework as appropriate.

Expected output:

The Consultant is expected to support the MOPICs on Federal and State level in the achievement of the following results:

Development Planning:

• Developing an Implementation Plan for the NDP

o Review the Logical Frameworks of the plans and translate them into annual deliverables and associate this with the implementation arrangements.

• In consultation with MOPIED, OUR CLIENT and other relevant stakeholders, plan and conduct a number of validation and training meetings/workshops to ensure all relevant stakeholders are on the same page regarding the implementation of the M&E framework and that responsible government staff (at the Federal government and FMS level) are trained in the requisite skills to play their roles and responsibilities.

o To ensure strengthened FMS ownership of the M&E implementation Plan and that the necessary behavioral change starts to take place, part of the training will be hosted by and conducted in Federal Member State capitals for the staff working there.

• Support the alignment of sector ministry policy and strategy documents with NDP M&E framework
