    The Aga Khan Foundation, Afghanistan (AKF (Afg)) is an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), a group of international, private, non-denominational development agencies working to improve living conditions and opportunities for people in some of the poorest parts of the developing world.

To ensure that they can advocate strongly for AKF’s development perspective and to help reflect our experience in international development circles, the Coordinator understands the policies and programs of AKF; likewise, the Coordinator ensures that the changing donor landscape and funding priorities and are conveyed internally.

The Coordinator assesses grant issues and prepares regular analysis for Senior Management, particularly flagging problematic cases for attention. The Coordinator works with the rest of the Partnerships team and relevant units to decide on specific capacity gaps and to develop and deliver trainings in those areas.

    Consultancy: Website Editor, ADAP Section, PD – NYHQ, Requisition #516894

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Closing date: 24 Oct 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.

    Background & Rationale

    The Adolescent Development and Participation (ADAP) team in UNICEF is working to create a compelling content for its public-facing website. To do this, ADAP aims to draw attention to the many facets of its work to encourage public support, participation and action.

    ADAP seeks to hire a highly qualified editorial consultant to produce, edit and enhance its digital content. Tasks include performing all aspects of editorial work and page production—including working with the Drupal Content Management System (CMS)—editing and copy-editing texts, while working in conjunction with the ADAP team. This consultant will be responsible for editing texts from ADAP team, as well as preparing it for use in the new Drupal platform in development.This work cannot be done internally because of the lack of staff capacity to carry out this critical function.

    Purpose

    In this moment, the ADAP website is composed of 5 main sections (Home, About Us, Tools and Guidance, Document Library), although the consultant can suggest a better structure. The “About us” section will take the viewer to another level, “What we do”, which will be broken in 4 main themes. Each section will include text, pictures, video, reference documents and links to other relevant sites. Content is available for most of the sections, but it was not developed specifically for the purpose of a website and needs to be adjusted.

    Work will consist of:

  • Carring out all aspects of writing, editing and copy-editing digital content
  • Developing engaging content, as assigned, for webpages designed by ADAP
  • Curating video, photo and editorial content to be featured on the website
  • Consultant may be asked to work weekends and holidays, as required.

    Expected results: (measurable results) :ADAP Website updated with new structure and content (video, photo and editorial content).

    Duty Station :Consultant is expected to work from home.

Muchos de los comportamientos violentos están normalizados y hasta validados como forma viable de resolver problemas diversos o de disciplinar a los niños, niñas y adolescentes. Esta situación que viven nuestras comunidades afectan y determinan, en gran parte, los comportamientos y la forma de vincularse de los actores de la comunidad educativa nacional en el entorno escolar.

La prevención de la violencia y cultura de paz; IV. La solución pacífica de los conflictos; V. La no discriminación; VI. La participación de la niñez y adolescencia; VII. La perspectiva de género; VIII. El enfoque de derechos humanos.

    OVERVIEW OF THE POSITION

    Libya is experiencing significant political conflict, insecurity and economic challenges five years after the 17 February 2011 Revolution. The Government of National Accord (GNA) is facing a set of daunting political, security and economic challenges. To mitigate against political polarization, violence and the threat of terrorism, tangible improvements that positively impact the livelihoods of the Libyan population are urgently needed.

    With an institutional apparatus that has been eroded for over four decades the support of the international community is vital for the government to successfully meet the expectations of the public.

    Over the past five years the international community has supported Libya to rebuild its country and ease the hardship of the population.

    To further improve development outcomes and effectiveness the Prime Minister has decided to establish a Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit (PMDU). The PMDU will be a small and flexible entity that will focus on the implementation and delivery of top policy priorities. Specifically, the PMDU is anticipated to:

    • Improve the review and monitoring of progress and achievements in priority sectors and projects.

    • Effectively hold Ministers and senior officials to account for delivering the government’s key priorities.

    • Communicating the government’s delivery priorities and achievements.

    In order to realize the above objective, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has been tasked to assist the Office of the Prime Minister to establish and populate the Unit by recruiting required technical expertise.

    GENERAL FUNCTIONS

    Role objective:

    • Day to day oversight and supervision of the PMDU Government of National Accord Coordinator will be carried out by the PMDU Coordinator. The PMDU Government of National Accord Coordinator will submit end of monthly progress reports with detailed time sheets, as well as end of mission progress report following completion of the assignment to the PMDU Coordinator and the Project Manager, UNDP Political Dialogue project.

For the past several years, millions of people have been displaced from and within Iraq as a result of military operations. At the end of 2015, the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) began a military operation to enter and retake control of parts of the country under the control of armed opposition groups, especially in the Anbar governorate.

In the winter months, we also provide blankets and heaters. We pay particular attention to gender equality and ending gender-based violence (GBV).

    As budgeted

    Location

    Duration

    6 Months

    Start Date

    1 March 2017

    Reporting to

    Senior Education Specialist and Program Manager

    Introduction: The PLM

    Questscope’s unique Participatory Learning Methodology (PLM) draws on a Freirian model of critical pedagogy to empower students personally and socially, through the facilitation of safe classroom spaces that fosters belonging and growth for each individual. In these positive social environments, youth can establish relationships with trusted adults and engage in dialogue-based learning. Through process of social learning, Questscope gives each participant the tools they need to direct their own learning and, subsequently, their own futures. Thus, the support, freedom, and flexibility granted by Questscope’s PLM empowers each student to serve as active agents of change for themselves and for their communities.

    Essential elements of the PLM that must be addressed in the manual, are as follows:

    Banking pedagogy v. Problem posing pedagogy: PLM rejects the traditional banking model of education, where the teacher serves as the ultimate authority in the classroom depositing his/her knowledge into the students. Instead, PLM employs a problem-posing method of education in which students and facilitator are equal members of the community, learning from and with each other. The teacher becomes a facilitator of learning and the learning process.

    Student-teacher relationship: Problem-posing pedagogy relies on a respectful relationship between student and teacher, based on love, mutual respect and the shared desire to learn together. Through this guided, friendly yet professional relationship, students recognize themselves as key participants in the knowledge production process. This transformational student-teacher relationship enables all parties to engage in true dialogue. The teacher/facilitator becomes a “cultural worker,” creating space for a culture of learning that results in competency and agency.

    Dialogue: Dialogue is a key component of the Questscope PLM. Through dialogue within the classroom, between student and teacher as well as amongst the students, the facilitator creates an atmosphere of equality that respects each individual student and their life histories. A dialogic pedagogy suggests that students are not blank slates meant to absorb information, but rather active participants in creating knowledge.

    Generative themes: Additionally, with the PLM, the facilitator elicits the stories and experiences of the students as the basis of their learning, working with the students to translate them into written texts. As students build their literacy skills, these generative themes and related texts (نص المولد as they’re called in Arabic) help students “read the word and the world.” Using themes derived from the students’ own live experiences, the facilitator also demonstrates and fosters respect among the students and emphasizes their value as individuals and as members of the community. The recognition and appreciation of each student’s self-worth, in turn, serves to empower the students and help them see their own experiences as valuable and important.

    Social Emotional Learning: The PLM does not aspire simply to teach literacy and numeracy, it also uses social-emotional learning to support holistic well-being. Through social emotional learning, students develop knowledge and skills necessary to understand, label and manage their emotions. This self-awareness builds social awareness, whereby students can see other perspectives and empathize with them. Students also develop decision-making skills, the ability to forge positive and healthy relationships, and other essential soft skills.

    Critical Consciousness: Through the PLM, facilitators aim to see the best in each individual student, to foster respect, love and a sense of self-worth. This is done by building a strong relationship between student and facilitator, employing dialogue in the class, and basing lessons on generative themes derived from where students live. This creates a positive environment in which individuals are valued for who they are and where they have been, leading to the development of a critical consciousness. With critical consciousness, students can perceive personal, social and economic (among other) challenges surrounding them. This transformative pedagogy, coupled with the knowledge and skills they learn through their learning, enables them to become positive agents of change in their own lives and in their community.

    Background: Questscope and NFE

    Questscope delivers the PLM through its Non-Formal Education (NFE) program, the only NFE program in Jordan certified by the Ministry of Education, offering educational opportunities for youth who have previously dropped out of school. Questscope’s students represent a particularly vulnerable segment of society who come from backgrounds of poverty, broken or dysfunctional families, and have a history of being alienated, neglected, and abused. Many of these students either had to drop out of school to work and support their family or were displaced by war, conflict and trauma due to war, and for them Questscope serves as their only opportunity for personal, professional, and academic advancement. The NFE program provides a youth oriented and supportive environment through which students can obtain a 10th grade certificate from the Ministry of Education and continue either to vocational training or re-enroll in the formal education system.

    The NFE program is comprised of three levels, each of which take place over an eight-month period. This 2-year program is open to all youth between the ages of 13 and 20 living in the Kingdom, regardless of nationality or residency status, and caters to a significant refugee population. Students attend daily educational sessions for a period of two-three hours, where they study Arabic, Math, English, computer skills, Islamic religion, vocational maturity, life skills, the human body, health, environment, and civic and social development. Daily NFE sessions are led by facilitators who are trained by Questscope and also serve as teachers in Jordan’s public school system.

    Purpose of the Assignment

    The main purpose of this assignment is to work with the Questscope NFE team, NFE facilitators, teachers and youth, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive manual of the Participatory Learning Methodology. The consultant will be under the direct supervision of the Senior Education Specialist and Program Manager and will working closely with various departments within the NFE team.

    Position context and key challenges

    ACTED has been present in South Sudan since 2007, and is currently operating in Western Bahr-el-Ghazal, Warrap, Jonglei, Upper Nile, Lakes, and Central Equatoria states. ACTED focuses on emergency and relief works around water, sanitation and hygiene promotion; basic infrastructure; food security and livelihoods; and integrated camp management. All of these interventions continue to provide basic and life-saving assistance to vulnerable populations, specifically IDPs, refugees and host communities.

    Since the aftermath of the South Sudanese conflict that erupted in December 2013, ACTED has been contributing to the delivery of humanitarian services to 1.7 million displaced persons, 270,767 refugees, and 5.1 million people in need. ACTED continues to providing camp management services in 2 Protection of Civilian (POC) Sites, 1 informal settlement and 2 refugee camps, while contributing to Camp Coordination as co-lead of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management cluster. Acknowledging the importance of engaging in early recovery to transition towards sustainable solutions, ACTED supports communities in improving their livelihoods through the promotion of income generating activities, community saving groups, and Agro Pastoralist Field schools in Greater Bahr al Ghazal, Greater Upper Nile and Lakes.

ACTED has been expanding the provision of water and sanitation services to the refugee population of Doro, Kaya and Gendrassa camp and improved sanitation practices in rural areas such as Akobo county.

    ACTED’s interventions focud on first addressing the dire food security needs of displaced populations through emergency food distributions within internally displaced and refugee camps, while also working to improve the resilience of vulnerable people across the country through seed and tool distributions and the offer of food for the construction of community assets. Through this approach, ACTED aims to both address food insecurity in displaced populations while building population resilience in the transition towards early recovery, managing to reach over 150,000 beneficiaries.

    Transitioning into early recovery
    As the country slowly recovers from the havoc wrought from decades of conflict, ACTED’s programming increasingly focus on building resilience and improving living conditions of the country’s poor and displaced populations. Moving forward, ACTED’s camp team is looking at devising and executing comprehensive plans for the return or integration of displaced populations.

    Haiti: Technical Advisor, Program Management Unit (PMU)

    Organization: Population Services International
    Country: Haiti
    Closing date: 08 Dec 2016

    Technical Advisor, Program Management Unit (PMU)

    Department LAC, PSI/Haiti (OHMaSS)

    Based in Haiti

    Up to % international travel

    Reports to the PSI Country Representative

    Who we are

    We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.

    There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds – from the medical industry to the music business – all with unique skills we bring to the job.

    Join us!

    PSI has operated in Haiti as a local NGO for more than 25 years, having launched products ranging from condoms to contraceptives, and ORS to safe water. In line with its institutional development vision, PSI Haiti has deepened its national roots, changing its name to reflect a more local entity Organisation Haitienne de Marketing Social pour la Santé (OHMaSS), and developing a more diverse board. PSI is the principal recipient of Global Fund resources for Malaria, HIV and TB, with a total of roughly $77m for the next two years.

    PSI seeks qualified candidates for a Technical Advisor for a Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) Program Management Unit (PMU) to be placed within OHMaSS. PSI served as Principle Recipient for a $37 million Round 8 Malaria Grant in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Population, since 2011 (ended in Dec 2015), and based on a successful performance, PSI was proposed by the CCM in Haiti to become the PR for its HIV/TB grant starting November 1, 2015. In addition, PSI will serve as PR for the $16 million NFM malaria grant starting January 2016.

    The Technical Advisor will be primarily responsible for ensuring that OHMaSS and all Sub-Recipients (SRs) are in full compliance with Global Fund’s regulations and policies with regards to programmatic, financial and administrative oversight and reporting requirements. This will include putting in place and/or reinforcing adequate systems, controls, and tools as well as providing mentoring and ongoing training to the PMU team and SR partners as required. In addition, this individual will ensure that the PMU incorporates into management systems and procedures Global Fund’s best practices and lessons learned from PSI’s experience worldwide as a Principle Recipient.

    The Technical Advisor will work closely with the OHMaSS team, Ministry of Health and Population, and SRs to build the capacity of the management team and partners and to ensure systems and procedures are in place to support the program. In addition to translating complex strategy into action, and experience with the Global Fund, the ideal candidate will have demonstrated ability to maintain excellent partnerships with GF and other donors in general, the government and other key stakeholders.

    Bottom line: we are looking for a team player who can think big (both near and long term) and who also understands the importance of getting the details right. This full-time position is based in Port au Prince and will report to the PSI Country Representative. The position will require up to 30% travel to visit program implementation sites in the field.

    Sound like you? Read on.

    Your contribution

    • Lead PSI/OHMaSS in the implementation and monitoring of its GF grants
    • Work with senior managers to administer SR contracts and monitor SR performance, including the development of a SR tracking and reporting system for programmatic, administrative and financial operations.

    • In coordination with the Deputy Executive Director, effectively liaise with SR partners, the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM), Local Funding Agent (LFA), the GFATM in Geneva and appropriate PSI/Washington Departments
    • Managing and mentoring the PMU team with a particular focus on the Grant senior managers to ensure project technical approach conforms to best practices in the Haiti context and are consistent with national

    What are we looking for?

    • Master’s in Business Administration, Public Affairs, International Relations, Public Health or related discipline
    • Knowledge and proven experience with GFATM required, understanding and familiarity with the NFM preferred
    • Proven experience developing and effectively managing government, other stakeholders and partner relationship

    • Excellent diplomatic, presentation, interpersonal and oral/written communication skills
    • Background in malaria control activities preferred

    Côte d’Ivoire: Women’s Protection and Empowerment Coordinator

    Organization: International Rescue Committee
    Country: Côte d’Ivoire
    Closing date: 03 Jan 2017

    Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) mission is to help the world’s most vulnerable people survive, recover, and gain control of their future. The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.

    COUNTRY PROGRAM OVERVIEW

    Côte d’Ivoire’s crisis between 2002 and 2010 was characterized by periods of intense violence followed by relative calm. Initially brought about by the collapse of prices in the vital cocoa industry, the conflict was fuelled by issues of national identity, ethnic allegiance, and land ownership. This resulted in the internal displacement of hundreds of thousands of people (IDPs), profound social disintegration, and the decay of basic community infrastructure such as health centers, water points, and schools.

    IRC had a brief presence in south-west Côte d’Ivoire in the late 1990s to respond to the needs of Liberian refugees. It then re-opened its office in Abidjan in 2003 to respond to the humanitarian needs brought about by the civil conflict, as well as to address a new wave of Liberian refugees.

    In 2016, IRC works for the Ivorian population at large, mainly targeting populations that have been the most affected by the conflict and/or for which specific attention is needed during recovery. Programs include facilitating the recovery of local health and education services, building community governance capacity, and contributing to women’s safety and empowerment. In 2016, the IRC is implementing 14 projects in the field sites of Man, Duékoué, Odiénné and Yamoussoukro, as well as in its Abidjan HQ office.

    From now until the end of 2020, the IRC in Côte d’Ivoire will prioritize improving health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and decision-making power. The IRC aims to reach 2.1 million people in Côte d’Ivoire, specifically targeting women and girls, unemployed youth, returnees and other vulnerable groups.

    The Women’s Protection and Empowerment program has been operating in Central and Western Côte d’Ivoire since 2003. While a large program closed in November 2015, GBV prevention and response and women’s socio-economic empowerment intervention have been integrated into HIV, economic recovery and development and education programs. Besides, a specific BPRM funded WPE project targeting returnees and host communities in Western Côte d’Ivoire is starting in October 2016.

    Fondée en 1933, la mission d’International Rescue Committee (IRC) est d’aider les populations les plus vulnérables à survivre, se relever et retrouver le contrôle de leur avenir. L’IRC répond aux crises humanitaires les plus aigues et aide les personnes dont les vies et les ressources ont été détruites par les conflits et les catastrophes naturelles à survivre, se relever et retrouver le contrôle de leur avenir.

    Contexte général

    La côte d’Ivoire a connu une crise sociale et politique de 2002 à 2010, caractérisée par des périodes de violence intense, suivie d’un calme relative. Initialement démarrée en raison de la chute des prix du cacao, le conflit a été nourri par des problématiques d’identité nationale, d’appartenance ethnique et de propriété foncière. Cette situation a entraîné le déplacement forcé de centaines de milliers de personnes, une profonde désintégration sociale, et l’affaiblissement des services sociaux de base, comme les services de santé, d’éducation et d’accès à l’eau.

    IRC a été présente dans l’Ouest de la Côte d’Ivoire à la fin des années 1990 afin de répondre à la vague de réfugiés libériens, puis a rouvert ses bureaux à Abidjan en 2003, pour répondre à la crise humanitaire causée par le conflit. En 2016, IRC travaille auprès de la population ivoirienne, en ciblant principalement les populations les plus affectées par le conflit et / ou qui nécessitent une attention particulière. Les programmes mis en uvre sont des programmes de réhabilitation des services de santé et d’éducation, de relance et développement économique, ainsi que de protection et d’autonomisation des femmes. L’IRC met en uvre 14 projets dans les sites de Man, Duékoué, Odienné et Yamoussoukro, ainsi qu’à Abidjan.

    De 2016 à 2020, l’IRC va prioriser l’amélioration de la santé, la sécurité, l’éducation, le bien-être économique et le pouvoir de décision. L’IRC vise à atteindre 2.1 millions de personnes en Côte d’Ivoire, avec une attention particulière aux femmes et aux filles, les jeunes au chômage, les populations retournées et les groupes vulnérables.

    Le programme de Protection et d’Autonomisation des Femmes a été opérationnel au Centre et à l’Ouest de la Côte d’Ivoire de 2003 à 2015. Avec la clôture du large programme, les interventions de prévention et de réponse aux VBG, et d’autonomisation socio-économique des femmes ont été intégrées dans les projets VIH et éducation. Par ailleurs, deux nouveaux projets spécifiques financés par le BPRM et le département d’Etat américain (USDS) ciblant les femmes et les filles dans les communautés de retour à l’Ouest de la Côte d’ Ivoire sont en cours de démarrage.

    United States of America: Senior Investigator

    Organization: International Rescue Committee
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 15 Nov 2016

    Background/IRC Summary:

    The International Rescue Committee is among the world’s leading humanitarian relief and development organizations. The IRC has been at the forefront of virtually every major humanitarian initiative to assist people uprooted by war, persecution, or civil conflict for the last 80 years. And, more than 80 years after Albert Einstein helped create the IRC, the number and intensity of humanitarian crises across the globe warrant a dose of Einstein-inspired innovation.

    The world’s more than 50 million displaced people, the most since World War II, require more than “aid as usual.” Their growing and increasingly complex needs mandate a transformation-a creative rethinking-in the global humanitarian response.

    The beneficiaries of its programs deserve evidence-based interventions that bring real change to their lives. That is what the IRC is determined to deliver. The IRC has grown because its teams have gone to the toughest places, done cutting-edge research, developed in-depth knowledge, and forged vital relationships with local governments. Today its 11,000 employees and 13,000 incentive workers work in 170 field offices in 40 crisis-torn countries are helping communities rebuild after Ebola, survive terrorist insurgencies, and recover from war. From health care to education to protection for women and girls, the IRC is there. And unlike any other humanitarian organization, it is also here, in 26 U.S. cities, helping newly arrived refugees adjust to life in America and make a contribution to their new country.

    • Prepare reports and ad hoc briefs pertaining to investigations in coordination with the Director, Financial Integrity Investigations, and the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer and others as appropriate;
    • Prepare recommendations for corrective action and improved controls and effectiveness or efficiency of IRC operations;
    • Support the preparation of work plans and the prioritization of investigative work in consultation with Compliance Unit management. Monitor and assist the work of contracted specialists as appropriate;
    • Participate in developing and revising compliance-related best practices and lessons learned from investigative work.

    B. STATEMENT OF WORK FOR A USPSC/TCN PERSONAL SERVICES CONTRACTOR (PSC) Eastern Congo Transition Objective 3 Office Senior Advisor, USAID/DRC

    Background and Country Context

    Located at the crossroads of the African continent and sharing borders with nine countries, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the second largest country in Africa in terms of area and the fourth largest in terms of population. It has unparalleled natural resource wealth, including cobalt, copper, gold, tantalum, tin, diamonds, and petroleum. Fifty percent of the world’s cobalt production occurs in the DRC. It has abundant water resources, sufficient for consumption, agriculture, and environmental protection, but also enough to provide electricity to most of Africa. It has the second highest agriculture potential on the continent, over 60 percent of the second largest forest basin and carbon stocks in the world, and substantial fish and livestock resources. Despite all its extraordinary resource endowments, the DRC’s development progress remains elusive and has yet to benefit the broader population. The country is at or near the bottom of several major indexes: It ranks 154th out of 177 on Transparency International’s 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index, 184th out of 185 on the World Bank’s Doing Business Report (DBR) for 2015, and second to last on the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) 2014 Human Development Index (HDI). On the World Bank Governance Indicators, DRC remains between the first and tenth percentile for all six, including political stability, government effectiveness, rule of law, control of corruption, voice and accountability, and regulatory quality, with government effectiveness having falling to a low of 1.44 since 2003. There are some silver linings for example, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative admitted DRC as a full member in 2014 in recognition of its compliance with reporting requirements.

    Peace in eastern Congo

    Between 1996 and 2003, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) experienced two wars in which nine foreign armies and over thirty armed groups clashed within its borders.[1] The February 2013 signing of the Peace, Security, and Cooperation Framework (PSCF) in Addis Ababa, between eleven African countries and four regional bodies, accompanied by the appointment of high-level international envoys to the region, created a sense of optimism within the international community for the prospects for peace.

    [1] The literature on conflict and international response in eastern DRC captures many political and analytic perspectives. The following recent work should provide excellent orientation: Prunier, Gerard. 2010. Africa’s world war. Oxford University Press; Stearns, Jason. 2012. Dancing in the glory of monsters: The collapse of the Congo and the great war of Africa. Public Affairs; Peace Building. 2014. Special Issue: Moving forward in the eastern DRC. Vol. 2 Issue 2. Routledge; de Vries, Hugo. 2015. Going around in circles: The challenges of peacekeeping and stabilization in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Netherlands Institutes of International Relations ‘Clingendael’: Shepherd, Ben. 2014. Beyond crisis in the DRC: The dilemmas of international engagement and sustainable change. Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The following are also useful online resources for recent analysis and observations from researchers; Rift Valley Institute ; Congo Research Group ; Chris Vogel blog;

    The PSCF provided an opportunity to galvanize local, regional, and international players to take a renewed look at finding solutions to underlying issues. However, the long list of previous peace agreements and continued conflict has tempered optimism that the PSCF will achieve lasting results. Previous efforts at peace lacked a common vision between the Government of the DRC (GDRC) and the international community and were plagued by low engagement from government leaders on security sector reform. Additionally, they did not address underlying interests fueling the conflict and were marked by a lack of local leadership and community inclusion.

    Developments since 2013 remain decidedly mixed and despite some positive trends, much of eastern DRC remains unstable and prone to conflict. Although the M23 rebel movement was routed in December 2013 by a combination of DRC and UN[1] forces, the lack of an effective Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) program, delays in neutralizing the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), and a variety of new armed groups establishing themselves have resulted in ongoing insecurity in certain zones of eastern DRC. This in turn has forced many internally displaced persons (IDPs) to move around the region. The return of Congolese refugees from neighboring countries, the recent influx of refugees and asylum seekers from Burundi, uncertainty regarding Presidential and local elections planned for 2016, and decentralization plans could all contribute to further instability.

    The conflict-affected region of the DRC, encompassing primarily the provinces of North and South Kivu, Maniema, Tanganyika, and Ituri, contains both active conflict zones and communities that are slowly, but not always consistently, emerging from conflict. Of the factors driving conflict, the all-pervasive issue of neo-patrimonialism is one of the most significant. This blurring of the lines between public duty and private gain profoundly influences governance capacity including the ability to manage peace and stabilization in the east. Many additional factors drive chronic instability, including: competition over natural resources (land and minerals), which are benefiting regional elites; traditional ethnic enmities which are manipulated by local and regional politicians for their own benefit; lack of economic opportunities that makes joining armed groups attractive for youth; residual Rwandan fears of a security threat from the FDLR; and local militias that have become criminal gangs. There are also long-standing tensions between “indigenous” groups and so-called “foreigners,” such as the Rwandophone4 Tutsi and Hutu groups that settled in DRC over the last few hundred years while the consequences of 1994 genocide in Rwanda dramatically exacerbated these tensions. These complex sets of factors are accentuated in the DRC, because political leaders and international actors have too often carried out political dialogue processes that lack inclusivity and without a solid understanding of the fundamental grievances that continue to drive the conflict. Absent meaningful social and political transformation, many analysts argue that cyclical violence will likely continue.

    Conflict in eastern DRC is also highly contextualized; it can be different, “every square kilometer.”[2] The International Security and Stabilization Support Strategy (I4S), revised in 2013, coordinated by MONUSCO (United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in DRC), encourages donors to focus on conflict drivers identified at the community level. According to 2013-2014 population surveys by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, communities saw natural resource exploitation, poverty and access to land as origins of the conflict, but went further to identify power struggles at the local level and ethnic divisions as contributing factors. Respondents prioritized inter-ethnic dialogue and community participation as a means to bring about lasting peace, as well as establishing the truth about past abuse, fighting corruption, and
    and promoting accountability and justice6.

    USAID/DRC Overview

    The DRC is both at a crossroads and under the spotlight with a U.S. and United Nations Special Envoy focusing on bringing peace and security in the region. The DRC is a strategic priority country in Africa for U.S. foreign policy and assistance, with a FY 2015 budget of over $200 million and over $100 million in humanitarian assistance per year.

    In 2014, USAID published its five-year Country Development and Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) for the DRC[3]. The Mission’s goal under the CDCS’s is to support a “Long-term transition to more effective and empowering development in the DRC.” As DRC transitions from a fragile state to a stable democracy, it is critical that the Congolese people’s expectations of their government be met through the improved provision of social services, including basic education. USAID recognizes that transformational change in the DRC will require long-term investment and focus. USAID’s 20-year vision is of a country where the Congolese take charge of their future to manage and sustain growth with their own human, natural, and financial resources. There are currently key opportunities to accelerate achieving this vision. In order to achieve this, USAID will support three Objectives under the CDCS:

    • Development Objective (DO) 1: Selected national level institutions more effectively implement their mandates.
    • Development Objective (DO) 2: Lives improved through coordinated development approaches in select regions.
    • Transition Objective (TO) 3: Foundation for durable peace strengthened in eastern DRC.

    USAID/DRC TO3 Programming

    USAID/DRC’s CDCS integrates investments in education, democracy and governance, health, social protection, peace and stability, economic growth, and humanitarian assistance into the three cross-cutting objectives mentioned above.

    A corresponding multi-sectoral team is responsible for achieving each development and transition objective. Technical offices continue to manage projects and staff. The Eastern Congo Transition Objective Three (TO3) Office manages a portfolio of $110 million annually and is organized into three sub-teams: peace and stability, social protection, and Food for Peace (FFP) comprising 13 staff. The TO3 objective is strengthening the foundations of durable peace in eastern DRC. The broader multi-sectoral TO3 Team includes staff from every office in the mission totaling 12 FSOs, 12 FSNs, and 2 PSCs.

    Current TO3 Office assistance helps communities address the causes and consequences of conflict, protects vulnerable survivors including children formerly associated with armed groups, women and girls subjected to sexual violence, and vulnerable street children. TO3 Office also furnishes both emergency food assistance and is bringing to a close a robust set of Development Food Assistance Programs (DFAP) in the east.

    USAID TO3 is designing and procuring new activities to help the Congolese people respond to urgent opportunities to create community level peace by increasing inclusion and improving social capital, implement a new generation of gender-based violence (GBV) response that treats, protects, and empowers survivors, and helping to bring vulnerable youth educational and vocational opportunities to reduce recruitment into armed groups.

    USAID TO3 will also soon launch multiple new DFAPs.
