  • 07/20/17--02:49: Djibouti: Area Manager
  • Organization: Danish Refugee Council
    Country: Djibouti
    Closing date: 02 Aug 2017

    Background
    DRC has been providing relief and development services in the Horn of Africa since 1997 and initially focused assisting those who are displaced by conflict, but now works with all those in the region impacted by displacement. DRC has offices across the region, and has been working in Ethiopia in 2009 and Djibouti since earlier in 2015 to address the needs of refugees, IDPs, and migrants in or transiting those countries. DRC has offices in Djibouti-Ville, Ali-Sabieh, and Obock, and implements projects in three refugee camps across Djibouti.

    DRC’s operation in Djibouti started to assist migrants crossing the country on the way to Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula beyond. These capacity building, awareness-raising, and livelihoods interventions were shortly joined by DRC’s work in the two refugee camps in the southern part of Djibouti that host the existing caseload of primarily Somali refugees, many of whom who have been in the camps for over two decades. DRC’s is UNHCR’s and FAO’s implementing partner in livelihoods in the refugee camps, and is further working on protection issues, specifically SGBV, in the camps, as well as CCCM. The remainder of DRC’s work in Djibouti is focused on responding to the refugee influx into that country from Yemen. In order to be able to host the new arrivals, the government has asked UNHCR to establish a new refugee camp in Obock, a region in northern Djibouti. Obock is a hard-to-reach region that has been severely affected by drought since 2008 and has the worst malnutrition rates in the country. The refugee camp site, Markazi, is located on the coast, four kilometers away from Obock town, the capital of the region.

    Organization: Danish Refugee Council
    Country: Jordan
    Closing date: 09 Aug 2017

    We are looking for a highly qualified and experienced consultant to evaluate the effectiveness and relevance of an ECHO funded protection and cash transfer programming for documentation outcomes. We are looking for someone with a relevant background in protection and CTP to 1 / assess the outcome and impact of the project in relation to its main objectives and 2/ Identify the impact of one-off cash assistance for documentation, its relevance, efficacy, and usefulness for achieving documentation outcomes at the individual and/or household level.

    Who are we?

    To help cope with displacement-related challenges in Jordan, the DRC led consortium, including Mercy Corps (MC) and Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) is assisting vulnerable refugee and host population since July 2016 and a substantial portion of our work has been implemented as cash transfer programming (CTP). DRC and its partners have been operating in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for over a decade, running a combination of emergency, protection, livelihoods, health, CTP and shelter programmes through Country Offices. .

    As the Syrian Conflict continues into its seventh year, trends in displacement have dramatically changed with shifting policies in overburdened MENA countries, an increased wave of refugees seeking fresh starts in Europe, and still no political end to the crisis is in sight. There are close to 660,000 registered Syrians living in Jordan alone, of which over 80% have found temporary homes in urban areas across the country.

    The project is a comprehensive protection intervention, jointly designed by the three partners in Jordan. Building on their complementary geographical presence and their extensive experience in a protection focused response to the Syrian crisis in Jordan, the project strengthens a protective environment that better identifies and responds to the protection risks faced by refugees living in the host communities of Jordan. The project includes protection monitoring and data collection at household and community level, information provision on legal and civil documentation, referrals and protection support, regular or one-off cash assistance to support refugees

    About the job

    Based on the findings of the evaluation, the consultant will provide clear strategic and practical recommendations to improve the CTP activities of a second phase of the project to start on Oct, 1st, 2017 through a wider consortium.

    Consultancy Objectives

    • Overall evaluation:

    1. The evaluation is expected to provide a comprehensive analysis of the project’s achievements, lessons learned, and recommendations for future actions in the different Governorates of Jordan with a strong focus on CTP.

    • Specific to cash transfer modalities:

    The evaluation needs to be carried out to assess the outcomes of the cash transfer project anticipated at the outset of the project.

    The main objectives related to CTP will be:

    1. To assess the impact the unconditional regular cash assistance (RCA) and the one-off cash assistance for documentation (CFD) had on the lives of the assisted individuals and families

    2. To identify the most efficient activities leading refugees’ families to obtain legal or civil documentation capturing the key learnings and factors (Information provision, referrals, CTP, case follow-up, protection, or any combination of them) which enabled the success of this cash-based programming activity.

    • In more detail, for the past performances, the consultant will answer the following key evaluation questions:

    1. Have there been significant protection benefits at both levels (Families/individuals)? Was the access to documentation improved?

    2. How relevant is cash programming for achieving documentation outcomes?

    3. What impact has RCA made in the lives of assisted families? Was the targeting relevant?

    4. Did the cash programming generate negative unexpected impacts (Gender, tensions, debt repayment etc.) that must be addressed for the future?

    5. How, if at all, were gender dynamics affected at the household level, and how can the project strengthen positive change in this area?

    6. How effective is the consortium cash programming in addressing documentation concerns as defined by the vulnerability and selection criteria?

    7. What factors could be improved to in the design to lead to more concrete protection benefits at the individual and household levels?

    Organization: Danish Refugee Council
    Country: South Sudan
    Closing date: 06 Aug 2017

    We are looking for highly qualified, self-motivated NGO Safety Adviser able to work with diverse teams of both national and international staff as well as local government authorities, UN agencies, I/NGOs and other partners under difficult, stressful and sometimes insecure conditions.

    Who are we?

    The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), founded in 1956 in Denmark, has been operational in South Sudan (formerly Southern Sudan of the greater Sudan) since 2005. Following the post -independence civil war of 2013, DRC reviewed its programming in the country to focus on the 2 states regarded as the epicenter of the civil war – the greater Unity state and the greater Upper Nile, while retaining in-house capacity to intervene in spontaneous emergencies in other parts of the country.

    The situation in South Sudan continues to be very fragile. The collapse of the Government of National Unity in July 2016 precipitated triggers for conflict, insecurity, economic crisis and food insecurity across the country, with the currency in free fall and inflation skyrocketing. In February 2017, the Government of Silva Kir declared a national famine disaster with nearly 5 million or 40% of the population at risk. Besides civil conflict and drought, other key internal displacement hazards include flooding and health epidemics especially cholera.

    During 2017, DRC is targeting nearly 300,000 Refugees and IDPs in at least 6 locations in the 2 states. About 52% of the population is women and half the population is below 18 years. The populations are assisted through funding from UNHCR (DRC is the lead partner of UNHCR in South Sudan), Danida, ECHO and OFDA among others. DRC programming strategy is three-pronged; responding to emergencies; seeking solutions to forced displacement and addressing root causes of displacement. DRC program interventions in South Sudan are realized through 5 key sectors, namely; Protection, Shelter &NFI; Food Security and Livelihoods, Camp Management and Demining activities. All sectors mainstream a Protection of Human Rights framework.
