Zimbabwe: CHILD PROTECTION IN EMERGENCY COORDINATOR CONSULTANT
Closing date: 2016-12-15Application : Apply for the job
Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 15 Dec 2016
UNICEF Zimbabwe is inviting proposals from Individual International consultants for the provision of support in Child Protection in Emergency
Since the declaration of the emergency in February 2016, the drought situation has dramatically deteriorated across the country. Post-harvest assessments and the July Report of the Vulnerability Assessment Committee (ZimVac) indicate that up to 4.1 million people in rural areas
 will be affected by food insecurity during the peak hunger period (January March 2017). This amounts to 42 % of the rural population.
Food insecurity increases the risk to HIV infection and default on care especially by young people, girls and women. Migration and other coping strategies employed by rural communities have created pockets of vulnerability in peri-urban and urban areas and other districts. Approximately 2000 children are estimated to have separated from their primary caregiver due to drought induced internal migration. The erratic hydrological cycle and El Nino impact has also had severe impact on the water resources and water availability, resulting in water insecurity. This has placed an extra burden of labour on women and girls and exposes them to violations of personal security and gender based violence as they travel long distances to fetch water for domestic use, engage in casual jobs outside the home for income to procure food.
The deteriorating economic situation is further compounding vulnerabilities of the drought as negative impacts continue to affect vulnerable women and children in Zimbabwe, with the situation expected to worsen in the coming months.
In light of these developments, UNICEF together with other humanitarian actors are strengthening and scaling up the multi-sectoral response to meet the growing needs. In addition, partners are closely monitoring forecasts on the likelihood and expected severity of the impacts of the possible La Ni a episode towards the end of the year.
UNICEF has been leading the coordination of both the protection sector and the child protection sub-sector. UNICEF has supported both sectors in generating evidence to inform the humanitarian response. UNICEF has also led efforts in advocating for inclusion of protection in the larger humanitarian fundraising efforts. As UNICEF has the largest Child Protection portfolio, expectations from partners are naturally high. There is also limited capacity and experience in CPiE amongst the sub-sector members and Gov t counterparts alike.
Also UNICEF Child Protection currently acts as a fund manager for a large pooled donor fund for the sector (Child Protection Fund), the existing team is predominantly occupied with the CPF management, implementation and coordination. Support of a Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator is critical in taking care of the emergency response activities.
Lastly the National Case Management system has just been expanded to nationwide thus data collection/compilation form subnational level is still underdeveloped. The Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator is needed to support the information management and surveillance at sub-national level and to ensure that the emergency response is integrated in the development programs. With this background UNICEF Child Protection section is seeking a Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator.
Child Protection in Emergency Coordinator will provide critical support of leading the coordination of the sub-sector, fundraising, advocacy, capacity building of partners and government and the development of the child protection monitoring and reporting mechanisms.
Methodology & Expected Output
