Food System and Nutrition Analyst - P3

Senegal, Dakar, Dakar - world food programme

About WFP    The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.   To learn more about WFP, visit our [website](https://www.wfp.org/) and follow us on social media to keep up with our latest news: [LinkedIn](https://www.linkedin.com/company/world-food-programme/posts/?feedView=all), [Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/worldfoodprogramme/?hl=en), [Facebook](https://www.facebook.com/WorldFoodProgramme/), [Twitter](https://twitter.com/WFP?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author).   What will you do in this position?  You will generate and contribute to the evidence base that supports food system and nutrition policies and programmes with the objective to facilitate Nutrition Integration in a variety of existing programmes and initiatives (e.g., School health and Nutrition, Social Protection, Integrated Resilience Package, Nexus approach, needs assessment and situation analyses, programme design, targeting, cost effectiveness, and operational efficiency). This also includes food security, and nutrition information system strengthening of national and regional information systems with regards to collection, analysis and reporting on Affordability of Safe Nutritious diets.   Context of the role  Improved nutrition situation analysis can increase the understanding of the likely magnitude and main causes of the nutrient gap among different target groups, e.g. children aged 6-23 months or Pregnant and Lactating Women (PLW), in a specific context. It can also inform where transformative change needs to happen in the food system to improve diets. The 'Fill the Nutrient Gap' (FNG) analysis is based on a better and more in-depth analysis of existing nutrition, dietary intake, food security, food prices, household food expenditure and socio-economic data. This tool has been instrumental to assist WFP in engaging with national stakeholders on ways to meet nutrient requirements for all with specific focus on the most vulnerable, such as women and young children and people in remote and/or conflict affected areas.  It strengthens national food security and nutrition action plans, as well as social protection programmes and school health and nutrition initiatives. It therefore helps to ensure SDG 2 will be met.  It links internally to the WFP's strategic planning processes, including Country Strategic Plan (2G CSP) formulation, and enhances WFP's broader situational analysis work managed by the Research, Assessment and Monitoring (RAM) team. Under the new WFP strategic plan (2022 - 2027), with an important focus on Nutrition Integration, further roll-out of FNG and its use to design of nutritious transfers is essential.  Such a design process would include determining the cost, affordability and availability of safe nutritious diets that include local climate sensitive (resilient) nutritious foods and how these can be integrated into food- and cash-assistance transfers to contribute towards safe nutritious diets. It is important that the WFP Regional Bureau for Western Africa and WFP Country Offices in Western Africa have the capacity to use the appropriate analytical tools and correctly apply when designing nutritious transfers. As such, building on achievements so far and Nutrition Integration-opportunities identified, this position will facilitate corporate roll-out of Fill the Nutrient Gap toolbox in the Western Africa region in support of the Nutrition Integration agenda, as outlined in the WFP Strategic Plan (2022 - 2027).   Why work with us?    This position is based in our Regional Bureau for Western Africa, in Dakar, Senegal.

Regional Sexual and Reproductive Health in emergency (SRHiE) Specialist - P4

Turkey, Istanbul, Istanbul - United Nations Development Programme

The Position: The Russian Federation's military invasion against Ukraine launched on 24 February 2022 has triggered one of the fastest-growing refugee emergencies in history, and the largest since World War II. The escalation of the conflict has caused civilian casualties, destruction of civilian infrastructures, including health facilities and maternities, disruption of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services and supply chain, and led to an increase in Gender-Based Violence (GBV) including Conflict-Related Sexual Violence (CRSV). UNFPA immediately scaled-up its response in Ukraine and Moldova, as well as Belarus and other countries affected by the crisis. So far, UNFPA Country Offices (CO) have benefitted from strong support from different UNFPA offices, not least the Humanitarian Office through its staff.  Moving forward, UNFPA Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECARO), based in Istanbul, is called to play a bigger role in terms of support to not only colleagues in Ukraine and Moldova COs, but also in Belarus CO and to partners and Implementing Partners (IPs) in all countries receiving people fleeing from Ukraine, especially the 4 EU countries neighboring Ukraine, i.e. Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, but also potentially in other countries like Georgia and Bosnia and Herzegovina where the number of arrivals continues to increase. (Data available on UNHCR [portal](https://data.unhcr.org/en/situations/ukraine)) Therefore, UNFPA is establishing a regional Ukrainian response unit under EECARO's leadership and management, in Istanbul, Turkey. Its main objectives will be to coordinate and provide tailored technical and operational support to UNFPA offices and partners in Ukraine and the neighboring countries affected directly or indirectly by the crisis with a focus on UNFPA-mandated areas of responsibility in Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH), as well as coordinates with other sister UN agencies regional emergency offices. This regional Ukrainian response unit will initially be composed of two specialists, respectively on Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) and GBViE, under the overall leadership of EECARO Regional Director and the supervision of EECARO Regional Humanitarian Coordinator (RHC). Based on the context evolution, the needs and the capacity of UNFPA to raise additional funds, this unit may later be strengthened with other profiles.  Under the overall guidance and supervision of UNFPA EECARO Regional Humanitarian Coordinator, the regional SRHiE Specialist supports strategic decision-making processes at country and regional levels in emergency response efforts with the aim to promote Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) programming and the implementation of quality SRH services in crises and post crises situations. The incumbent also supports COs and partners in the procurement and delivery of emergency medical supplies and equipment; orients COs and partners on SRH related issues (including maternal and new-born health, family planning information and services, STIs and HIV prevention, care and treatment, and care for survivors of violence). The incumbent also encourages and assists COs and UNFPA IPs and partners in capacity building and establishing relevant partnerships with other humanitarian stakeholders, NGOs, donors and government counterparts, not only in countries in EECA where UNFPA has country offices, but also in countries affected by the crisis, like the 4 EU countries neighboring Ukraine, namely Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania and other countries where people fleeing the conflict have sought protection. When the situation stabilizes, the incumbent guides partners and UNFPA COs on the establishment of comprehensive SRH services and/or the integration of SRH services in the regular/existing health system. Based on the evolution of the context, the incumbent also provides tailored support to UNFPA COs in their internal and inter-agency preparedness and contingency planning efforts.  More specifically, the regional SRHiE specialist will provide remote support in both emergency preparedness and response efforts, including capacity building for MISP and Clinical Management of Rape (CMR); development of SRHiE related tools and guidance notes; review of contingency plans and national DRR and preparedness strategies; planning and development of country office response; review of response-related documents such as fund requests and donor proposals; and provide guidance and insight on the best ways how to apply the strategies, plans and tools in order to best respond to the SRH needs of affected populations in the region.  The incumbent will work under the overall guidance of UNFPA EECARO Regional Director and Deputy Regional Director, under the direct supervision of EECARO Regional Humanitarian Coordination, and in close collaboration with UNFPA SRH advisors, specialists and analysts at country level (both from the regular teams and the colleagues deployed on surge), in EECARO and in UNFPA Humanitarian Office, Geneva. The regional SRHiE specialist will also collaborate with many partners at regional level (such as 0rganizations constituting the Regional Health Extension in Krakow, Poland) but also at country level, in countries where UNFPA does not have country offices.   In order to provide the most field-driven support to colleagues and partners responding to the crisis, the successful candidate will be based in the premises of UNFPA EECARO in Istanbul, Turkey. The duty station may be changed at a later stage to another country, like Poland or Moldova, based on needs, evolution of the context and localization of the regional teams of other agencies. The successful candidate will also undertake missions to the different countries affected by the war as needed.     How you can make a difference: UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential is fulfilled.  UNFPA's strategic plan (2022-2025), reaffirms the relevance of the current strategic direction of UNFPA and focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices. These results capture our strategic commitments on accelerating progress towards realizing the ICPD and SDGs in the Decade of Action leading up to 2030. Our strategic plan calls upon UN Member States, organizations and individuals to "build forward better", while addressing the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on women's and girls' access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, recover lost gains and realize our goals. In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction. UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.     Job Purpose: UNFPA requires an SRHiE specialist to coordinate and provide tailored technical, operational support and practical solutions on SRH programmatic and coordination matters to UNFPA partners and country offices in Ukraine and the neighboring countries affected directly or indirectly by the crisis.     You would be responsible for:   Coordination and Partnership       - Represent UNFPA in national health working groups in countries without UNFPA presence (such as Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland), in order to ensure that SRH needs are addressed and prioritized, map key actors, identify SRH-related gaps in the responses provided by local, national and international actors, and provide support based on needs, requests and UNFPA capacities and resources.  - Regularly represent UNFPA in other relevant regional working groups (such as health, inclusion, GBV (for integration with SRH), Cash and Voucher assistance (for access to SRH services), Information Management...), maintaining working relationship and sharing relevant information with other key actors, and ensuring that SRH remains a priority at all level - Encourage and support the establishment of  strong linkages between existing SRH and GBV programmes with regard to the health sector response for survivors of sexual violence; specifically on Clinical Management of Rape (CMR). - Coordinate closely internally with Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) and GBV experts in the countries to ensure that CVA is designed to meet the expressed needs of women and girls to overcome barriers to access to SRH (and GBV) services. - Facilitate coordination and knowledge management among SRH coordinators and specialists in the different countries - Support UNFPA COs to assess the capacity of existing implementing partners and explore new partnerships as necessary, especially in countries where UNFPA does not have permanent presence.  - Lead development of regional humanitarian SRH analysis and strategy (TBD) - Strengthen the partnership between UNFPA and the regional Refugee Health Extension (RHE) in Krakow (Poland), leverage UNFPA comparative advantage, lead the discussions for UNFPA to become part of the interagency extension team, and advocate towards SRHiE and their partners for SRHiE to be a priority 1- in the support provided to governments who lead and coordinate the refugee response in their respective countries, 2- in the work in close collaboration with the EU on national regulations, and 3- in the coordination with regional and HR experts - Ensure integration with the work of other UNFPA HO and regional technical specialists (e.g. Gender, GBV, Youth/Adolescents, HIV, Communication, Human Resources, Operations, Security) in SRH programming and coordination in all countries supported by UNFPA for the regional Ukrainian crisis.
