Organization: Development Alternatives, Inc.
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 11 Nov 2016

DAI implements a USAID contract Kenya NiWajibu Wetu (NIWETU), working to reduce violent extremism (VE) among at-risk individuals and communities in VE hotspots throughout Kenya. At-risk individuals and communities include: potential perpetrators of violence; those who sympathize with, advocate for, or materially and/ or morally support VE acts; and those who are unaware of the VE threat and might therefore be easily attracted to VE. NIWETU is anchored on Kenya’s National Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) strategy, and invites all stakeholders into collaborative and coordinated approaches advancing the security of Kenyan citizens.

NIWETU strengthens Kenyan communities’ and government institutions’ to take the lead on CVE by (1) building the capacity of and fostering strong relationships among individuals, communities, and civil society, and (2) supporting county and national government actors.

In support of the overall NIWETU goal, DAI is seeking expert input to design a Strategic Communications Pilot. The goal of the Strategic Communications Pilot is to promote a more conducive environment for human rights-based approaches to CVE in Kenya. Messaging and media coverage around VE has been characterized by sensationalized reports on violence, dire warnings of the terrorist threat, and opportunist political rhetoric, all of which exacerbate divisions. There is both need and opportunity for broad-based strategic communications around core themes that support human rights-based approaches and shift public sentiment in favor of a less securitized Government of Kenya approach to CVE.

The pilot plan will build on three strategic communication principles: Catalyze, Shape, and Amplify:

  • Catalyze: Mobilize Kenyans around the conversations that already occur in their public and private discourse. We will also move quickly to support emerging social movements with broad, organic appeal;
  • Shape: Adapt both message and messenger to fit community-level social realities and current events, reviewing language, idioms, and platform selections for all primary and secondary target audiences; and,
  • Amplify: Work with and through trusted influencers, boosting a human rights-based CVE message over appropriate tools and platforms, ranging from social media to traditional community information-sharing networks.

The components of the plan will include:

  • Preliminary analysis of perceived VE problem set and human rights among target audiences;
  • A media landscape scoping exercise for identified target audiences. This exercise will review influential electronic, audio, and print media outlets, measured by both audience penetration (viewership/listenership/circulation) and credibility in the subject matter (key informant interviews). In the digital context, we will assess “follows,” “shares,” and other active social engagements (the best proxy for trust and behavior change), rather than relying solely on views and other passive behavior alone;
  • A target audience analysis, with results disaggregated by geography, age, socioeconomic status, gender, and education levels. Within target audiences, the analysis will also identify key influencers, highlighting those likely to be receptive to a human rights education and CVE campaigns; and,
  • A Strategic Communications Pilot Plan, including budget, local partners, results framework, and monitoring measures, in addition to the above mentioned components of the plan. The Strategic Communications Pilot Plan must be highly operational, ready to implement as soon as the plan is approved, with recommended partners, inputs, outcomes, etc. The pilot must have an implementation period of months, and cover the counties of Nariobi, Garissa, and Wajir. The pilot is scheduled to run from March 2016 – July 2016. It is not anticipated that the designer of the strategic communications pilot will be engaged in the implementation of the plan itself, except to potentially play a role in monitoring of results through the pilot.

It is expected that the level of input required to achieve this scope of the Strategic Communication Pilot Plan includes 1-2 individuals working on a full time basis over a 4-8 week period. Should a 2-person team be required, respondents are required to propose both people, as directed below.

This will be a highly collaborative process with DAI and USAID, but the selected party will have primary responsibility for completing the deliverables on time and to a high standard. The final Strategic Communications Pilot Plan must be finalized, and accepted by DAI and USAID no later than end of February 2017.

How to apply:

We would appreciate a response from interested parties by 5pm EAT on Friday 11 November 2016. Packages should be sent to kcvearecruitment@gmail.com with “**Strategic Communications RFI**” listed as the title of the email. Emails received under a different title will not be reviewed.

Interested parties must include the following information in their responses:

  • Cover letter that clearly and simply states: The geographic areas you are able to work in, 3-5 examples of past performance undertaking an assignment that is similar in nature.
  • Detailed narrative outlining your approach to designing the Strategic Communication Pilot Plan deliverable (no more than 2 pages), including information about roles and responsibilities for your proposed team
  • CVs for ALL proposed team members
  • Completed USAID bio-data (form found at): https://www.usaid.gov/forms/aid-1420-17

DAI will review responses and contact short-listed candidates/teams accordingly.

Libya: Resident Coordinator’s Office, Coordination and Media Consultant

Organization: CTG Global
Country: Libya
Closing date: 16 Oct 2016

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

The United Nations Resident Coordinator (RC), who is also the UNSMIL Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General (DSRSG), Humanitarian Coordinator (HC) and the Resident Representative (RR), leads the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and the humanitarian Country Team (HCT).

Communications is an essential component of successful coordination – to ensure that the United Nations in Libya communicates as “One UN” and that its work in Libya is visible and well understood by all stakeholders and partners. Advocacy is an important part of communications for the United Nations to create awareness around critical issues and initiatives related to development, such as the introduction of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, and other areas related to the work of the United Nations in Libya. To this end, the UNCT established a United Nations Communications Group (UNCG), which consists of communications officers and focal points from across the membership of the UNCT.

Libya being a complex and rapidly changing context, demands for the RC and the UNCT/HCT increased efforts to respond to these circumstances and to bolster a positive constructive communications strategy aiding in transforming a usually negative image of the UN in Libya.

The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual work planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available.

This objective is supported by an extensive outreach program that brings global health opportunities and specialized career advice to a diverse range of interested individuals, with a particular focus on those underrepresented in the field of global health.

OHS works with other offices in GH, USAID missions, regional bureaus and partners to advance HSS knowledge and innovations and promote country uptake.

BCC/Communications technical assistance provider to countries implementing LLIN mass distribution campaigns

Organization: International Federation of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies
Closing date: 07 Oct 2016

Terms of Reference: BCC/Communications specialist

Background

The Alliance for Malaria Prevention (AMP) is a unique, multi-sectorial partnership within the Roll Back Malaria Partnership (RBM) focusing on scaling up efforts to prevent malaria, including achieving universal coverage[1] and use of long-lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs) to accelerate countries’ progress towards their malaria control targets and save the lives of millions worldwide.

Scope of Work

The Alliance for Malaria Prevention is seeking a consultant with broad experience in the areas of advocacy, social mobilization and behavior change communication to provide technical assistance to campaigns engaged in the mass distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide Nets (LLINs) to expand its existing roster of technical assistance providers.

Typically, the consultant will work closely with the campaign’s Communication Sub-committee (CSC), composed of a wide variety of partners, which reports to the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) led by the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP). During an assignment, the consultant will work in close coordination with the NMCP and the Ministry of Health, as well as with representatives of groups such as the President’s Malaria Initiative, the Global Fund and other implementation, technical and financial partners.

The scope of work for a specific consultancy assignment will vary according to the stage of a campaign’s planning and implementation. The following list represents the types of tasks that may be needed to be undertaken, dependent upon the circumstance of each campaign.

· Assist the CSC in developing its scope of work.

· Assist the CSC in developing a communication, advocacy and social mobilization plan of action, timeline, and budget for a campaign’s pre- distribution, distribution and post-distribution phases.

· Assist the CSC in devising messages and defining channels for messaging around household registration, procedures for net pick up, and the acceptable uses and/or disposal of expired nets, as well as the disposal of net packaging. Also assist in the development of post-distribution net hang-up and communication activities, if these are required.

· Assist the CSC in the development of communication plans and protocols both for countering false rumors and localized pockets of resistance to compliance with the campaign and its objectives. If warranted by circumstance, also assist in the development of a communication plan for responding to crisis situations.

· Assist in the development of social mobilization strategies and other appropriate communication approaches including the use of mass media for target groups with different communication requirements. This would include urban versus rural populations, as well as for internally displaced and refugee populations.

· Provide recommendations for strengthening communication activities in order for a campaign’s net utilization goal to be reached. This may include advising the CSC through a review of research findings about net use and care and the development of strategies to overcome knowledge, belief and behavior gaps that may be negatively affecting use and care. Review the messages, channels and timing to identify strengths and areas that could be further strengthened. If additional research is warranted, provide advice to the CSC on research priorities and approaches that will identify barriers to net use and proper care, as well as opportunities to effectively promote compliance.

· Assist the CSC in conducting an assessment of the malaria program’s existing brand strategy. If there is a determination to strengthen the brand strategy, assist the CSC in developing a creative brief that can be used to competitively contract a public relations or advertising firm to develop and produce a branding package, including products such as a slogan, logo, song, TV and radio spots, key motivational messages and an umbrella narrative capable of inspiring target audiences to help fulfil the campaign’s objectives.

· Provide advice on deploying the educational system (schools) to disseminate messages about the campaign procedures as well as net use and care.

· Assist the CSC in developing advocacy and engagement packages for specific audiences to include key messages, answers to frequently asked questions, and details about the campaign. These audiences may include categories such as elected officials, legislators, ministers, religious organizations and business organizations.

· Provide advice on using SMS text messages and other electronic / social media to remind the public to sleep under a net every night and on engaging telecommunications and other companies to provide in-kind contributions for these SMS / electronic media reminders.

· Assist in the development both of communication modules in a campaign’s training manual for Training of Trainers and of teaching and learning tools for training of supervisors, monitors, and implementers at regional and local levels.

· Assist CSC and the Operations subcommittee in assuring that the job aids for those carrying out social mobilization activities, household registration and LLIN distribution contain strong behavior change components.

· Provide assistance in adapting communication microplanning tools to country specific requirements.

· Provide assistance in developing communication indicators for inclusion in campaign supervision checklists, monitoring guides and evaluative research.

· Undertake observation missions or process evaluations to assess quality of implementation of activities and develop recommendations for future planning.

Key qualifications needed

· LLIN mass distribution experience: any TA provider working with AMP should ideally have worked on a mass LLIN distribution campaigns in the capacity of a planner or an implementer. The individual should have actively participated in the process versus being a member of an organization involved but without a campaign-specific role.

· Ability to work independently: as consultants all TA providers working with AMP are expected to be experts in their area of technical support and are expected to work independently to accomplish the terms of reference they have been hired to complete. TA providers should require minimal assistance from other members of the AMP technical support team to fulfill their terms of reference, but should feel free to use AMP colleagues as resources as needed.

· Ability to work in a team: all TA providers working with AMP are expected to be able to work within a team. The TA provider is expected to work with the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) staff and partner organizations and the TA provider is expected to fit within the team as a resource person who adds value to the discussions. In some cases, TA providers may need to work in a team of TA providers (where necessary and requested by the country).

· Ability to communicate effectively: the AMP TA providers communicate regularly with one another and communication lines are established at the outset of the contract signing. The TA provider is expected to provide regular updates to the AMP partnership through a situation report and participation in the AMP weekly conference call.

· Work ethic: the AMP TA providers typically work short-term missions with heavy workloads for completion of the terms of reference (ToR) they have been provided. It is expected that AMP TA providers will work as hard as possible to accomplish all elements of the ToR within the time of their mission. TA providers are under strict deadlines to submit final reports on time within the 7-day reporting deadline.

· Language: all AMP TA providers must be fluent (spoken and written) in either French or English to be able to communicate with the broader AMP team. Additional language skills (Spanish, Portuguese) are an advantage.

Validation of a TA provider in the AMP system

Once a TA provider has been identified for a support mission, they will receive a terms of reference specific to each country mission. If the TA provider accepts the terms of reference, they will be deployed on an initial trial mission to further assess their capacity to deliver. New TA providers will be asked to keep the AMP Senior Implementation Technician in copy on all communication during their first mission in order to assess progress over the course of the mission. The AMP Senior Implementation Technician will also maintain contact with the country and any other TA providers on the same mission to assess the fit of the TA provider within the broader country team working on the campaign.

At the end of the TA mission, the country and partners will be asked to evaluate the mission of the TA provider using a standard evaluation form that has been developed by AMP. Based on the assessment of the country and partners, as well as the AMP Senior Implementation Technician with inputs from other TA providers if it is a joint mission, a decision will be made as to whether the individual has succeeded and should be considered for additional missions or whether the individual has been unable to meet the terms of reference and deliverables. In the latter case, AMP will not deploy the TA provider for future TA missions.

Contractual terms

Since AMP is housed by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), IFRC is responsible for issuing consultancy contracts for in-country missions and other work related to AMP. The consultant will be contracted by the IFRC and the standard contractual terms will apply.

How to apply:

To apply, please send a recent copy of your CV and your expected daily rate to melanie.caruso@ifrc.org. Only applications containing both these requirements will be considered.

GHFP-II is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

GHFP-II’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID health programs by addressing the Agency’s immediate and emerging human capacity needs. The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual working planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available.

Looking to the future, GHFP-II also seeks to establish a pool of highly-qualified global health professionals that will ensure the Agency’s ongoing technical leadership and effectiveness.

  • Assisting with digital and online-related communications tasks, including updates to USAID’s FP website, but not limited to updates related to events, international event days, new documents, programmatic and project updates.

CaLP Regional Learning and Membership Launch Events- Consultancy Facilitation Terms of Reference

Organization: Cash Learning Partnership
Closing date: 03 Oct 2016

The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) is a global partnership of humanitarian actors engaged in policy, practice and research within cash transfer programming (CTP). Formed of a community of practice including over 150 organisations and more than 5,000 individuals in the humanitarian sector, CaLP is based on learning, knowledge sharing, networking and coordination around the appropriate and timely use of CTP in humanitarian response. CaLP believes that when appropriately incorporated into humanitarian response planning that includes access to goods and services, CTP presents opportunities for effective and efficient programming to meet the needs of people and communities affected by crises. With the number, scale and complexity of humanitarian crises increasing, CaLP acts as a catalyst for positive transformation within the sector.

Today, CaLP is the most representative body working towards the same goal in CTP. It now consists of more than 40 member organisations and individuals who are representative of all sectors and stakeholders necessary to achieve dramatic change. CaLP’s membership includes the private sector, governments, UN agencies, NGOs and international financial and telecommunication institutions.

To mark the 10-year anniversary of CaLP, and following on from the successful Global Membership Launch Event in Washington in April 2016, CaLP is planning to hold**Regional Membership Launch Events for East Africa (Nairobi), Asia (Bangkok), and West Africa (Dakar)**. The key aims of these events are to: a) share experiences, and debate the changes required for the full transformative potential of quality cash transfer programming (CTP) to be reached in the respective regions; and b) develop collaborative ways of working and/or partnerships between CaLP and its members.

Joint Applications for all Three Events, or Applications for Single Events:

Note that this TOR consists of work covering the three regional membership launch events, and proposals to facilitate all three events are welcomed. However, recognising that this may not be feasible, applications to facilitate individual events will also be accepted, with final decisions on selection to be made based on the comparative quality and cost effectiveness of the proposals across the three events. Obviously the proposed number of days for an application for a single event should be reduced appropriately (see Duration and Timing of Consultancy for more details).

Location:

This assignment will be split between desk-based preparatory work and reporting, and in-country facilitation of the events in Nairobi (Kenya), Dakar (Senegal), and Bangkok (Thailand). The Consultant(s) will be required to travel to the respective event destinations a short time before the events themselves, to complete on the ground preparations with CaLP.

Duration and Timing of the Consultancy:

The consultancy is expected to take a maximum of 42 days across the three events, including preparatory work, facilitation of three x 2-day events, and reporting. At this stage the precise timing for two of the events has not been finalized, but it is expected that all the events will take place in late November and December 2016. Much of the workload will be ahead of the events, engaging with CaLP and contacting key stakeholders to ensure the events are set up in an efficient multi-forum way and that the organisation of presentations / working groups / plenary / stalls, etc. is organised in a manner to maximize learning, exchange and participation from a cross-section of actors and sectors. As such it is anticipated that the consultancy should start by October 2016.

After the events, there will be report writing, pulling together the key points and findings identified through the events. These regional reports are expected to include features such as stakeholder mapping and proposed ways of working, membership engagement planning, and mapping of CTP research plans at regional and national levels. It is expected that all final outputs will be delivered to CaLP by December 20th 2016, ready for external dissemination.

Outputs (for joint proposals for all three events):

  1. Finalisation a three x two-day ‘multi-forum’ Regional Learning Event and Membership Launch agendas in discussion with CaLP and using learning from membership/annual events from other networks such as ALNAP, Interaction, START Network etc. This will also draw on the agenda and learning from CaLP’s Global Membership Launch Event. It is expected that for each regional event, the first day will target both CaLP members and non-members, while the second day will be for members only (dealing with planning and discussions relevant to the membership only)

  2. In preparation for the events, consult with a wide range of key stakeholders, to support the finalisation and logical flow of presentation topics and speakers as needed (contacts to be provided by CaLP regional and global teams)

  3. Before, during and after the events, gather and review the presentations, research and case studies that are directly presented/referenced during the event to ensure coherence, proper display and sharing after the event

  4. Produce a final event report (including regional mapping, membership engagement and collective work planning etc.) for external advocacy, learning and documentation purposes for each event (i.e. 3 x reports). Framework to be discussed and agreed with CaLP before delivery, including the key steps from Output 3 above.

  5. From the event discussions, capture the key themes/issues identified and produce a power point to capture the same to be used by CaLP in subsequent regional events and inductions for new members (i.e. 3 x presentations)

Although each regional event will be unique, based on the specific objectives relevant to the respective regional communities of practice, it is expected that there will also be commonalities between the events. Where one consultant/partnership is involved in the delivery of all three events, this will allow frameworks, materials, reporting structures etc. to be utilised and adapted across the three events, allowing for better harmonisation, and creating efficiencies overall.

Essential Requirements:

  • Proven experience of facilitating high level events with a range of stakeholders, including senior government partners, the international humanitarian and development community and private sector stakeholders related to humanitarian action and policy development.
  • Excellent writing, presentation, and collaboration skills.
  • Fluency in English, both spoken and written.
  • Fluency in French, both spoken and written (if intending to cover all three events, or applying for the Dakar event individually)

Desirable:

  • Knowledge of cash transfer programming, CaLP and its stakeholders.

How to apply:

Proposal Submissions:

Applications and Financial Proposal, either for individual events, or jointly for all three (preferred), should be submitted to CaLP’s Global Administration Officer (Joseph Rudulph) on administrator@cashlearning.org.

If you have any questions regarding this TOR, please address them to CaLP’s Membership Officer (Rose Smith) on membership@cashlearning.org.
