United States of America: Consultancy: Risk, Resilience and Fragility – Knowledge Management Consultant - HATIS, PD - NYHQ, Requisition# 505072

NGO/UN Job Vacancy

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: United States of America
Closing date: 15 Jun 2017

If you are a committed, creative professional and are passionate about making a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.

For 70 years, UNICEF has been working on the ground in 190 countries and territories to promote children's survival, protection and development. The world's largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.


Shocks including natural hazards, armed conflict, epidemics, economic downturns and food price hikes, are eroding rights and reversing development gains; stresses such as, violence, unplanned urbanisation, rapid population growth, climate change and environmental degradation, lack of social cohesion are compounding vulnerability, fragility, reducing resilience and increasing the impact of shocks. Moreover, amid advances in development, the benefits of rapid economic growth have not been equally shared and disparities have increased. More than ever before, many of the most vulnerable children face increasingly high levels of risk.

In 2016 UNICEF developed a position paper on resilient development with the following definition: ‘The ability of children, communities and systems to withstand, adapt and recover from stresses and shocks, advancing the rights of every child, with special attention to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.’ UNICEF considers that Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Climate Change Adaptation (CCA), Peacebuilding (PB) and Preparedness all contribute to strengthening resilience.

To support Member States and other partners to implement the 2030 Agenda (including the Sendai Framework and the Paris Climate Agreement) commitments to achieve targets on risk and resilience, UNICEF’s draft Strategic Plan (2017-2021) includes explicit results related to climate change, disaster risk reduction, resilience as well as strengthening social cohesion and peacebuilding.

In contributing to these results the Humanitarian Action and Transition Unit (HATIS) within Programme Division will from 2017 to 2019 support the following areas and related outputs:

  • Systems strengthening:
  • All new country programmes are risk- informed
  • All relevant country programmes incorporate conflict analysis and peacebuilding programming
  • All humanitarian response use an integrated inclusive approach with strategic components that link humanitarian, development and peace programming
  • Adolescents:
  • All emergency response uses an integrated approach that incorporates gender, disabilities and adolescent programme standards and strategic components that link humanitarian and development programme;
  • Participation of adolescents is fostered through UNICEF’s work on DRR, CCA and peacebuilding
  • Knowledge Management
  • Guidance, Case studies and experience on risk informed programming (DRR, peacebuilding, climate change adaptation, preparedness) across regions and countries available and shared


Working to support the implementation of the above and collaboratively with other Divisions and Regional Offices, the consultancy will result in enhanced knowledge and capacity of UNICEF Regional and Country Offices to operate more effectively in fragile and risk prone contexts advancing resilience development.

Expected results

The consultant will support the Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience Specialist and the Fragility and Peacebuilding Specialist in collaboration with other members of the HATIS team. He/she will be responsible for the following activities:

  • Develop short briefs and maintain on-line learning materials for existing training/capacity development packages
  • Conflict sensitivity and peacebuilding training
  • Support the development of the on-line learning for Guidance for Risk Informed Programming (GRIP)
  • Short briefs on programming framework for fragile contexts
  • Lead the development of knowledge management products for HATIS
  • Develop regular webinars including on GRIP, peacebuilding, DRR and fragility
  • Maintain Community of Practice (SharePoint) on risk, resilience, fragility and peacebuilding
  • Establish a database of good practice on programming in fragile and risk prone contexts
  • Maintain a set of presentations of key aspects of risk, resilience, fragility and peacebuilding
  • Lead the development of brochures and other communication materials
  • Support the development of materials in support of inter-agency conferences and workshops
  • Support data analysis and evidence generation with DRP (Division of Research and Policy)
  • Support the rollout of the Guidance for Risk Informed Programming and Programme Framework for fragile contexts
  • Organize logistics, establish Long Term Agreements (LTAs) and edit training material
  • Support the development of funding applications to be presented to UNICEFs key partners
  • Provide text and editorial support as requested
  • Support coordination of Humanitarian Action Report including mid-year progress tracking
  • Support editing and collection of data as requested by EMOPS

Start date: 1 July 2017

End date: 31 May 2018

Since June 2014, IOM has been successfully implementing multi-layered emergency response projects funded by the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), under which over 140,000 individual Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) were reached with life-saving assistance in the first phase of the project. The key focus of the project’s second phase will be on the direct provision of integrated emergency response support in the Central Region of Iraq, including Non-Food Item (NFI), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Shelter, and Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) actions. To further strengthen emergency operational response across Iraq, direct service provision will be enhanced by the inclusion of Communications with Communities (CwC) and Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) units throughout the project.

Under the overall supervision of IOM Chief of Mission, the direct supervision of the Senior Emergency & Programme Coordinator, and in close coordination with Programme Managers of the Shelter, NFI, CCCM, CwC, and DTM units, the successful candidate will be responsible and accountable for managing, implementing, monitoring, reporting, and developing forthcoming projects falling under the umbrella of the IOM ECHO emergency response project portfolio.
