EPHS Costing Consultancy - P3

Liberia, Montserrado , Monrovia

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. For every child, health is a must!! Background:The Government of Liberia developed its first Essential Package of Health Services (EPHS) package in 2011 which became the cornerstone of the 2011- 2021 National Health Policy and plan and was built upon the successes of the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) Implementation. The 2011- 2021 EPHS consisted if a comprehensive set of services that strengthen key areas that continue to perform poorly with the high Maternal and Child Mortality and additional areas such as Adolescent Health. The recently released 2019/2020 Liberia Demographic Health Survey (LDHS) revealed successes in Maternal Health service delivery however newborn and child health indicators showed no improvement over the last 5 years and the EPHS is currently being reviewed with a strong emphasis on strengthening the Primary Health Care System where 80% of the population access their Health care. Good health planning and health management cannot be performed without the availability of cost and utilization data, nor without associated analyses relating the two. These data, and subsequent analyses, help policymakers to know how efficient and effective their health care delivery system is, as compared to how efficient and effective it could be. The inevitable presence of resource constraints in the health sector, and the constant demands from other sectors for alternative uses, makes it critical that managers and planners of government health services keep close track of what it costs to produce what level of health care services. The funding constraints is made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic and outbreaks in which the limited available funds have been channeled to respond to the emergency needs. Thus, the costing of health services needs to relate the volume of services produced by the health system to the resources expended to produce them is based on a fundamental imperative: deliver the most services (at acceptable quality) at the least cost. The number of services produced in relation to their costs will give some indication of the efficiency of production, both for individual facilities and for the system. Thus, the costing of PHC and Liberia Every Newborn Action Plan (LENAP) is essential to feed into the EPHS. These cost estimates will support with resource mobilization and health package prioritization for which the UNICEF Health Team has been providing technical expertise towards its development since 2021, however the Liberia Country office does not have the capacity in house to perform Economic costing and due to the specialized function required for the costing process and to  build the GoL and UNICEF Liberia Teams capacity a high level Consultant is required. How can you make a difference? This role will focus on providing support to Liberia in the following:Constitute a core EPHS Costing Technical Working Group.Provide technical support to conduct a rapid assessment, data analysis and mapping of Liberia specific PHC model of Care in line with the EPHS.Conduct PHC costing, LENAP costing and subsequent EPHS costing.Develop EPHS, PHC and LENAP policy briefs and investment case. This assignment will include engaging with the UNICEF country office, WHO, MOH staff, and other in-country stakeholders in assessing the PHC needs and how it relates to other tiers of health service delivery and opportunities where PHC services can support and strengthen the delivery of quality care at community level.

Chief Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation and Reporting - P4

South Sudan, Jubek , Juba

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. For every child, hope The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The past two decades have seen important progress on child rights, yet while much has been achieved, sharp disparities remain. In most countries, inequality is higher today than a generation ago, including in middle income countries where a majority of the world's poor children now live. The rapid pace of urbanization and the growing youth bulge in Africa will require significant expansion of the provision of essential services for children. These challenges are compounded by the scale and complexity of crises triggered by conflict, natural disasters, or epidemics. The global community faces these challenges when the political and economic environments pose challenges of their own, testing the world's commitment to protecting the most vulnerable. In this environment, strong and consistent leadership of UNICEF is critical to enable the achievement of results for children. Strategic Office context:The Chief Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting (PMER) reports to the Deputy Representative Programme and is responsible for the overall management of the Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Section.

Senior Immunization Specialist - COVAX Planning - P5

United States of America, New York , New York City

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. UNICEF Program Group is currently undergoing organizational changes; therefore, the exact location of the post has yet to be determined. Selected candidates may be required to commence duties remotely until the location is confirmed. If reassigned or relocated to New York, candidates may be expected to relocate to a new location again during the initial contract or assignment period. When working remotely, the candidate will be required to agree on working hours with the Hiring Office, which may require the inclusion of all or some of the NYHQ core working hours (10AM-4PM). UNICEF is a key implementing partner of COVAX, the Vaccines Pillar within The Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator (ACT-A). ACT-A was launched in April 2020 and brings together governments, scientists, businesses, civil society, philanthropists and global health organizations with the aim of accelerating development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines. UNICEF is a delivery partner for COVAX, procuring and supplying COVID-19 vaccines, and is using its existing infrastructure to help facilitate the logistically demanding delivery. UNICEF is co-leading the COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership together with WHO and the GAVI Secretariat. Some of the most important support provided by UNICEF for COVID-19 vaccine delivery relates to cold chain expansion, supply chain management, social mobilization and implementing digital innovations for COVID-19 vaccine monitoring. National immunization programmes are routinely developing strategic and annual operational plans to guide implemention. Strong strategic and operational plans may be particularly important in coming years if there is a need to integrate COVID-19 vacicne into routine immunization services. For countries receiving Gavi support, the strategic plan should be closely linked to Gavi's Full Portfolio Planning. UNICEF has worked on enhancing planning processes for immunization since 2018. Objectives are to streamline the strategic planning process and to increase usability and impact of Annual Operational Plans and budgeting processes. UNICEF country offices are often directly involved in formulation of strategic and annual operational plans and Technical Assistance to the process is provided by regional offices and HQ. Planning processes should be closely linked to programme reviews and monitoring systems. During 2022, several COVID-19 Post Introduction Evaluations (cPIE) will take place in countries. The cPIEs are a good opportunity to assess ways for enhancing integration of COVID-19 vaccine delivery with routine immunization services. Findings from the cPIEs should be integrated into future National Immunization Strategies and Annual Operational Plans.  For every child, a healthy life? The incumbent will lead UNICEF's work on enhancing planning and review processes for immunization programmes, with a particular focus on integrating COVID-19 vaccination with routine immunization and facilitating health systems strengthening.

UNICEF

Individual Contractor, Social Protection - P3

Liberia, Lofa , Monrovia

 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.For every child, social protection is a priority!! How can you make a difference?Background:Half of Liberia's estimated 4.9 million population lives below the poverty line (HIES 2016), which is deeply entrenched in rural (71.6 per cent) compared to urban (31.5 per cent) areas. In 2018, 71.2 per cent of Liberians experienced multi-dimensional poverty affecting children the most in a country where 51 per cent of the population is younger than 19 and 16 per cent are under five years. A 2018 Systematic Country Diagnosis paper by the World Bank described Liberia as a fragile post-conflict state with abundant natural resources, a rapidly growing population, and a unique legacy of entrenched inequality that undermines social and political stability. It further highlighted poor education and health indicators, inadequate and dilapidated physical infrastructure, limited transportation and communications connectivity, and weak public institutions as key bottlenecks preventing sustainable poverty reduction.Within this very fragile context, when the county was still recovering from the EVD outbreak, the COVID-19 pandemic created additional pressure on the already weak and overburdened social service delivery systems, exacerbating the vulnerabilities of the affected populations. Response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Liberia focused specifically on COVID-19 prevention, care, and treatment interventions; the response did not particularly address the vulnerabilities of the populations by improving access to essential and basic social services, improving the resilience, therefore, improving resilience faster recovery of populations.The Second Edition of the annual Liberia Economic Update by World Bank issued in November 2021, titled 'Finding Fiscal Space', states that economic growth is expected to recover to 3.6 per cent in 2021 before rising gradually to an average of 5.2 per cent over 2022?2025. In the near term, growth will be driven by the expected recovery in the mining sector underpinned by the recent uptick in commodity prices. Having reached a peak of 31.3% in 2019, inflation declined significantly in 2020 and 2021 and is now down to single digit, mainly because of strong macroeconomic policies. But the macroeconomic policy was at the centre of the action, with tighter monetary and fiscal policies and the ensuing lower aggregate demand pressures helping to ease the self-reinforcing cycle of depreciation-inflation observed in late 2018 through 2019. The report recommends that 'The Government must be commended for making tough policy choices that have resulted in this positive turnaround in macroeconomic fundamentals, especially under a challenging COVID-19 environment'. The focus now should be on complementing the improved macroeconomic environment with critical structural and governance reforms that will help boost domestic and foreign private investment to create more jobs,' he added. After successfully stabilising the macroeconomy, the Government needs to make enough fiscal space to finance the country's massive investment needs in physical infrastructure (power/energy, roads, rails, ports, and airports) and building social capital. Liberia needs to invest in its people and institutions, create an educated, skilled, and healthy labour force in the public and private sectors, and protect its economy and vulnerable population against repeated exogenous shocks, the Liberia Economic Update emphasised.The 2021 PEFA reports that actual revenues have been lower than the planned estimates. For example, actual revenue was 92 per cent of budgeted revenues in 2017/18 and 2018/19. The Counties and Districts only receive information about annual transfers from the national government when the draft budget is published on the MFDP's website, which deals with the development of their budgets and associated services. Additionally, there is insufficient information about service delivery to the public. Similarly, the horizontal allocation of transfers to Counties and Districts is not determined by transparent, rule-based systems. On the other hand, as expenditures are underfunded, planned resources are not provided as planned, leading to significant administrative reallocations. A framework of performance indicators relating to the outputs or outcomes is published by some Ministries, such as the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health. There is insufficient information about service delivery to the public. Liberia's draft national budget for the year 2022 is approximately US$ 785 million. The budget across the eleven sectors is higher than that of 2021. For example, there is an 11.3 per cent increment in allocation in the health sector, while the education sector has a draft increment of 12.3 per cent. These increments are expected to solve educational and health challenges while also helping to protect women and mothers from childbirth complications, issues of drugs and other administrative matters across hospitals, teachers, and direct spending on education. Social services, which are basically about development interventions, will see a climb of 174.7 per cent, equivalent to 26.3 million dollars. The expenditure composition is largely recurrent, mainly a sizeable portion for employee compensation (approximately 40 over the years). The other significant categories of expenditure are goods and services (20 per cent) and grants (10 per cent). The Government, in recent years, implemented the harmonization of the wage bill leading to the reduction of the wage bill.Given the conte context above, UNICEF Liberia (LCO) entered a new Programme of Cooperation (2020 ? 2024) with the Government of Liberia, targeting equity in three programme components: early learning and basic education; child protection; and child survival and development, which encompasses activities in the areas of health, nutrition, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). The programmes contribute to national development priorities as per the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD), UNICEF Strategic Plan 2018-2021, Key Results for Children WCARO (West and Central Africa Regional Office), and the United Nations Sustainable Development Framework 2020-2024. Social Policy inclusive of social protection is a key part of the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development. However, UNICEF Liberia did not adequately priorities its social protection interventions in the country's programme results and resources framework, and it did not develop an integrated architecture for its implementation. This raises concern of enhanced risk of misalignment between programme strategies, interventions undertaken and planned results. Purpose of Assignment:In such a scenario, as explained in the background, UNICEF Liberia plans to strengthen its programming and contribution to scaling up the existing social policy measures and introducing additional measures as one of the critical programmatic strategies. The strategy aims to address the vulnerabilities of the population and improve the resilience at the family and community levels. This strategy also contributes to building the capacity of the Government to deliver social protection programmes. The strategy requires stronger collaboration with the Government of Liberia, particularly with the Ministry of Gender Child and Social Protection (MoGCSP) and the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MoFDP). World Bank, International Monetary Fund etc., are the other development partners that are the key actors in the social protection programming in Liberia. The other key area of intervention is to address the issue of low fiscal space for the social sector in general and particularly for essential social services for children. UNICEF Liberia intends to support the Government in reviewing the public finance and fiscal space and identifying means for favorable allocation to key priority social services for children, particularly the most vulnerable, addressing the widespread equity challenges. Therefore, UNICEF Liberia intends to strengthen the programming in areas of social protection and public finance for Children.Under the general guidance of the supervisor, the Individual Contractor (Social Policy) is expected to deliver on key tasks as identified under Scope of Work (4), providing coordination and technical support in assisting the various stages of social protection and public finance for children programming of UNICEF Liberia.

 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.For every child, Disability Research Job organizational contextThe fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does. The leave no one behind principle of the SDGs and UNICEF's equity agenda translates this commitment on children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination.The Office of Research-Innocenti (UNICEF-Innocenti) is the dedicated research office of UNICEF. It undertakes and commissions research on emerging or current issues of relevance for children to inform the strategic directions, policies and programs of UNICEF and its partners. The Office explores emerging issues, identifies research gaps, brings together existing researchers, and supports or undertakes research and data collection to address critical questions to inform global debates. The Research Facilitation & Knowledge Management unit within which this post is located plays a leading role in building a knowledge culture across UNICEF and partners by providing essential guidance, tools and facilitation to strengthen generation, communication and use of evidence in decision-making. Purpose of the post:The number of children with disabilities globally is estimated at almost 240 million. The United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS), launched by the UN Secretary General in June 2019, provides a common framework for UNICEF and other UN entities to measure progress towards the SDGs and UNICEF's equity agenda. UNICEF is committed to mainstream disability in all areas of its work, strengthening policies, programmes and practices to be disability inclusive. Participation of children and youth with and without disabilities is critical to everything UNICEF does.Both the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Committees have pointed out the lack of disaggregated data and research and expressed concern over the lack of information on the situation of children with disabilities, thus calling for studies on their situation including access to services and support.With the support of NORAD and working in close coordination with the Disability section of UNICEF's Programme Group and UNICEF's country and regional offices, UNICEF-Innocenti is building upon earlier stakeholder consultations with the disability research community, donors, organizations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) and development partners, to develop and coordinate a Global Research Agenda and Platform for Children with Disabilities. This will generate, communicate and use new research and evidence for better policies and to guide increased investment in effective interventions to support the social inclusion and rights of children with disabilities. It will be a catalyst for research co-creation and a hub to coordinate a global network of policymakers, donors, researchers and practitioners, including those with lived experience, and to amplify the voices of children and youth with disabilities.The vision includes working with OPDs, leveraging partnerships and developing participatory research methodologies for ethical engagement of children with disabilities. It will aim to advocate for the alignment of research priorities on children with disabilities and for mainstreaming a disability, equity and inclusion lens in all research about children. UNICEF cannot do this alone, but is in a prime position to champion, advocate, and coordinate.The role of the Agenda and Platform is to lead and coordinate a network of researchers, experts and practitioners in four areas of commitment: (i) advocacy and resource mobilization; (ii) capacity strengthening, learning and development; (iii) convening; and (iv) evidence synthesis & knowledge generation. Key functions, accountabilities and related duties/tasks:Management and co-ordination? Provide day to day technical leadership of the Global Disability Research Agenda and Platform across all four areas of commitment, including coordinating and facilitating inclusion of OPDs in research that informs policymaking and programming.? Act as the institutional focal point to monitor and track UNICEF's disability research-related commitments made at the Global Disability Summit in February 2022 and support implementation of UNICEF's Disability Inclusion Policy and Strategy (DIPAS).? Act as the UNICEF Innocenti disability focal point, leading on relationship management and harmonization of disability research-related activities between UNICEF Innocenti, Programme Group, DAPM and Regional Disability Focal Points.? Act as the UNICEF Innocenti disability research and evidence generation focal point to ensure activities are aligned to and inform UNICEF's broader disability programming and advocacy agenda, acknowledging the need to build a stronger evidence base for inclusive policymaking and programming for children with disabilities.? Establish an Advisory Group for the Global Disability Research Agenda to provide strategic support and advice. Organise regular meetings of the group and act as the Secretariat.Advocacy and Stakeholder Coordination? Draw upon the Evidence Gap Map (EGM) on Children with Disabilities (produced with support from the Government of Norway and the International Disability Alliance in 2022) to finalize a draft Global Research Agenda for Children with Disabilities.? Design and roll out a participatory stakeholder consultation process with the disability research community, OPD's and other development partners to ensure validity and ownership of the Global Research Agenda for Children with Disabilities.? Issue a call to action across the global research community, policymakers and donors to address knowledge gaps, invest in and undertake disability research that is informed by human rights, gender equality and social justice.? In partnership with relevant stakeholders, draw upon evidence to jointly advocate and guide investments in effective interventions for the inclusion, participation, and rights of children with disabilities to support accelerated delivery of the child and adolescent focused SDGs and revised Core Commitments to Children.? Lead, build and nurture a diverse internal and external global network of disability-focused stakeholders and partners in support of the Global Disability Research Agenda and Platform with the aim of bringing visibility to the critical issues.? Advocate for active and meaningful participation of children with disabilities and their representative organizations, particularly from the global south, in all research (adopting the ?nothing about us without us' principle) and provide guidance to make research ethical, inclusive and accessible for children with disabilities.Resource Mobilization? Develop an investment case and lead on resource mobilization with public and private partners to establish research across UNICEF and partners that provides knowledge to understand and remove systemic barriers and obstacles to support social inclusion and meaningful participation of children with disabilities, particularly, but not exclusively in the global south.? Lead on resource mobilization across UNICEF and partners to provide evidence that brings the development and humanitarian sectors ever closer to understanding and reducing ableism, stigma, discrimination, and violence against children with disabilities.? Co-lead the development of new lines of research which mainstreams disability across UNICEF Innocenti research teams, including leveraging the initial resources needed to enable critical research to deliver answers in identified evidence gaps within and outside UNICEF.? Support resource mobilization in the areas of implementation research, adaptive programming, ethical evidence generation, behavioural sciences, evidence synthesis, knowledge management, convening, strategic communication and other cross-cutting areas in collaboration with RFKM, Convening and Communications colleagues across UNICEF Innocenti.? Secure co-financing for the Evidence Gap Map on Children with Disabilities to become a living map with regular updating, to ensure it becomes a ?go to' resource on the state of the evidence on children with disabilities globally.Communication and Convening? Work with the UNICEF Innocenti Communication team, Programme Group and other key internal and external partners to develop the Global Research Platform webpages and online presence, source content and populate on an ongoing basis, ensuring synergy with other relevant sites.? Act as an accessibility champion for all UNICEF Innocenti web pages, social media presence, publications and other related outputs, providing guidance to ensure latest standards are maintained and upheld.?

Administrative Specialist - P3

Chad, Chari-Baguirmi , N'djamena

  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. For every child,The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.UNICEF's HIV response for children must ensure that neither age, poverty, gender inequality, nor social exclusion determine access to life saving HIV prevention, treatment and care. UNICEF and its partners' responses ensure all children are born free of HIV, and remain HIV-free for the first two decades of life, from birth through adolescence. It means that all children living with HIV have access to the treatment, care and support they need to remain alive and healthy. This is UNICEF's vision of an AIDS-free generation starting with children. Ending AIDS among children is vital to ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030 ? the overarching goal of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) of which UNICEF is a cofounding partner. How can you make a difference? KEY END-RESULTS1.

Child Protection Specialist - P3

Mexico, México , México City

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. For every child,  The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. In 2015, 10.4% of adolescents surveyed indicated that they were invited to be part of criminal groups in the place where they live, with a higher incidence in male adolescents (13.5%) than among adolescent women (7.8%). Out of the adolescents in detention centers surveyed in 2017, 35% said they were part of an organized criminal group; and 27% said they had committed a crime in association with members of the gang they were part of in the neighborhood where they lived. Despite the lack of comprehensive hard data on association of children with armed groups, available data en studies point at a total number of children associated between 30,000 to 45,000 children and up to 145,000 at risk nationally (REDIM). Despite Mexico´s broad regulatory and institutional framework, gaps persist in the legal and policy frameworks and an absence of comprehensive approaches and programs to prevent recruitment and promote reintegration. Mexico´s 2019-2024 Action Plan to End Violence Against Children includes as the prevention of recruitment and reintegration of children associated with organized crime as a priority action. As part of this process, the Council of the National Observatory for the Prevention of recruitment of children and adolescents led by the Federal Secretary of Public Security was established in October 2021 which has requested UNICEF´s support to the implementation of its work plan. As such, UNICEF Mexico has prioritized the prevention of recruitment and reintegration of children associated with organized crime and armed groups. The prevention of child recruitment is an integral part of the federal Peace and security Strategy 2018-2024. Job organizational context: The Child Protection Specialist will work for UNICEF Mexico Country Office (CO) where the Child Protection Programme is a component of the Country Programme. The Specialist reports to the Chief, Child Protection, who is at Level 4. Purpose for the job: Under the supervision of the Chief of Child Protection, the Child Protection Specialist on children associated with armed groups will provide technical support to the National Observatory for the Prevention of Child Recruitment by Organized Crime in the implementation of its work plan, will provide technical support in planning and managing UNICEF related support programmes, and will support technically interventions in priority states with higher violence rates. The Specialist supports the development and preparation of the Child Protection programme(s) and is responsible for the management, implementation, monitoring, reporting, and evaluation of the child protection programmes/projects within the country programme.

Knowledge Management Specialist - P3

Italy, Tuscany , Florence

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. Job organizational context The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does. The leave no one behind principle of the SDGs and UNICEF's equity agenda translates this commitment on children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination. The Office of Research-Innocenti (UNICEF-Innocenti) is the dedicated research office of UNICEF. It undertakes and commissions research on emerging or current issues of relevance for children to inform the strategic directions, policies and programs of UNICEF and its partners. The Office explores emerging issues, identifies research gaps, brings together existing researchers, and supports or undertakes research and data collection to address critical questions to inform global debates. The Research Facilitation & Knowledge Management unit within which this post is located plays a leading role in building a knowledge culture across UNICEF and partners by providing essential guidance, tools and facilitation to strengthen generation, communication and use of evidence in decision-making. Purpose of the post The number of children with disabilities globally is estimated at almost 240 million. The United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS), launched by the UN Secretary General in June 2019, provides a common framework for UNICEF and other UN entities to measure progress towards the SDGs and UNICEF's equity agenda. UNICEF is committed to mainstream disability in all areas of its work, strengthening policies, programmes and practices to be disability inclusive. Participation of children and youth with and without disabilities is critical to everything UNICEF does. Both the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Committees have pointed out the lack of disaggregated data and research and expressed concern over the lack of information on the situation of children with disabilities, thus calling for studies on their situation including access to services and support. Working in close coordination with the Disability section of UNICEF's Programme Group and UNICEF's country and regional offices, UNICEF-Innocenti is building upon earlier stakeholder consultations with the disability research community, donors, organizations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) and development partners, to develop and coordinate a Global Research Agenda and Platform for Children with Disabilities. This will generate, communicate and use new research and evidence for better policies and to guide increased investment in effective interventions to support the social inclusion and rights of children with disabilities. It will be a catalyst for research co-creation and a hub to coordinate a global network of policymakers, donors, researchers and practitioners, including those with lived experience, and to amplify the voices of children and youth with disabilities. The vision includes working with OPDs, leveraging partnerships and developing participatory research methodologies for ethical engagement of children with disabilities. It will aim to advocate for the alignment of research priorities on children with disabilities and for mainstreaming a disability, equity and inclusion lens in all research about children. UNICEF cannot do this alone, but is in a prime position to champion, advocate, and coordinate. The role of the Agenda and Platform is to lead and coordinate a network of researchers, experts and practitioners in four areas of commitment: (i) advocacy and resource mobilization; (ii) capacity strengthening, learning and development; (iii) convening; and (iv) evidence synthesis & knowledge generation. Key functions, accountabilities and related duties/tasks Under the supervision of the Chief, Research Facilitation & Knowledge Management (RFKM), working closely with the Disability Manager (Research Facilitation) to coordinate responsibilities, the incumbent will be responsible for leading the following activities in support of the Global Research Agenda and Platform for Children with Disabilities: Evidence Synthesis & Knowledge Generation.Manage the evidence and knowledge arising from UNICEF's research, and draw upon external organisations' research, to identify evidence and knowledge gaps and synthesize to build a stronger evidence base for inclusive policymaking and programming.Build upon the Evidence Gap Map (EGM) on Children with Disabilities, produced with support from the Government of Norway and in collaboration with the International Disability Alliance in 2022, to identify need for additional evidence synthesis products, linked to potential resource mobilization priorities.Work under the leadership of the Disability Research Facilitation Manager, linking with the PG Disability team and Regional Office disability focal points to undertake a UNICEF-wide stocktaking exercise of disability-related research and evidence products on children with disabilities, produced over the period of the last Strategic Plan 2018-2021, as well as planned products for the Strategic Plan (2022-2025).Lead on production of UNICEF disability research retrospective publication (tracking impact of previous investments) and establish an impact monitoring system to capture current and future impacts of UNICEF disability research.Build long-term relationships and engagement with research institutions at local, national, regional and global levels ? especially in the Global South; to fund and use co-creation and co-production models including with national governments, OPDs and intended users of research. Update and populate the Evidence Partnerships Mapping tool with disability centres of excellence in the global south.Generate new research, in collaboration with local and regional researchers, OPDs, INGOs, UN agencies and with children and youth with disabilities, to push for change in how organizations (including UNICEF) deliver interventions that include and promote the rights of children with disabilities. This will involve looking at what works and what does not, identifying barriers to achieve scale, and influencing research frameworks and methods to make research more responsive to and accessible to children with disabilities and OPDs. Capacity Strengthening, Learning and DevelopmentDefine priorities for capacity development and learning (including face-to-face, remote and self-learning), guiding the global disability research community on participatory and ethical engagement of children with disabilities in co-creation of research and social inclusion interventions.Lead on development and delivery of training, workshops, guidance and related products on qualitative participatory and ethical research /data collection with children with disabilities, drawing upon specialist support from colleagues as necessary.Support UNICEF researchers to mainstream disability in their ongoing research and strengthen participation of OPD and children with disabilities in research in both development and humanitarian settings.Oversee coordination of and support to potential short-term funded visiting research fellowships for researchers with disabilities, and associated recruitment and monitoring processes.Support development of disability research led by the Global South, with a focus on applied research to overcome practical implementation and scaling challenges and barriers. Communication and ConveningWork with the UNICEF Innocenti Convening team, the Disability Research Facilitation Manager, Programme Group and other key parts of UNICEF to lead and support youth engagement in UNICEF Innocenti convening events and research activities, particularly bringing in children and youth leaders with disabilities to amplify their voices, ideas and contributions.Explore establishment of a sponsored global UNICEF Innocenti art competition for children with disabilities to amplify the potential of the creative industries to enhance social inclusion and enable more inclusive communication products.Support and co-ordinate the preparation of an annual research symposium on the topic of children with disabilities, including contributing to associated blogs, social media campaigns and publication of proceedingsCo-ordinate and contribute to the preparation and writing of high-quality publications for peer-reviewed journals; working papers; policy reports and briefs; web stories, blogs and other relevant outputs as appropriate. Education:Advanced university degree with a background in Social Sciences, Political Sciences, Disability, Research, Evaluation, Knowledge Management, Humanitarian, Ethics or Child Rights. Experience:A minimum of 5 years of progressively professional experience at the international level in research, knowledge management, evidence synthesis, research impact, ethics or another related area.Good knowledge of the human rights-based approach and equityExpertise in undertaking ethical qualitative research using participatory methods with vulnerable populations, ideally with children with disabilities.Demonstrated background in research knowledge management, uptake and impact, including on the topic of children with disabilities in development contexts.Experience in conducting evidence syntheses such as systematic reviews, rapid evidence assessments, rapid reviews and evidence gap maps.Experience in running participatory consultations, including with children and/or young people.Experience with qualitative analysis software (e.g. Atlas.Ti and NVivo).Experience of using Systematic Review software (e.g. EPPI-Reviewer, RevMan, Covidence) and/or qualitative and qualitative analysis software.Access to and experience of using Citation Management Software (e.g. Zotero, EndNote)Good professional relationships and international networks across the research, knowledge management and evidence synthesis sectors, ideally including amongst relevant communities of practice working on children with disabilities.Knowledge of UNICEF and of relevant parts of the organization working in the area of children with disabilities is considered an advantage, but not essential. Language requirement:Fluency in English language required.
