Closing date: 12 Nov 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.
PURPOSE OF EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI)
The increasing focus on conflict-affected and fragile contexts in UNICEF’s humanitarian and development programmes drives our commitment to conflict sensitivity and the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies. This requires additional capacities that can be deployed flexibly, to meet the support needs of UNICEF Country Offices.
Successful candidates will be placed on a roster and considered for individual assignments as requested by UNICEF Country Offices.
A quarter of the world’s children – more than 500 million – grow up experiencing violent conflict and chronic crisis. These children also face the largest challenges in the realization of their rights, which is why UNICEF programmes often operate in conflict-affected and fragile places. Seventy percent of UNICEF programme resources today are invested in these contexts.
UNICEF has made it a priority to ensure conflict sensitivity and to identify programming entry points to address underlying causes of conflict. In 2016, the organization published the UNICEF Guide to Conflict Analysis and the UNICEF Conflict Sensitivity and Peacebuilding Programming Guide. Both guiding documents were developed based on field experience and evidence from UNICEF programmes and contain a specific child focus.
SCOPE OF WORK
