Child Protection Manager - P4

Iraq, Baghdād, Baghdad - UNICEF

  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 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.   How can you make a difference? You will be accountable for providing leadership and facilitating the processes that will ensure a well-coordinated, strategic, adequate, coherent, and effective CP humanitarian response through a mobilized, adequately resourced group of agencies, organizations, NGOs etc. The purpose is also to assist the state authorities in CP sub-cluster visioning, strategy formulation and the articulation of a 'Road Map' to provide adequate CP responses to the conflict affected populations (both IDPs and refugees). The post will also function in close collaboration with the SCI as the CP sub-cluster Co-Coordinator and the Federal Government of Iraq (GOI) and KRG, who have responsibility for the overall quality of CP service in Iraq. The post is expected to synergize the work of CP sub-cluster partners (UN Agencies, NGO, CSOs etc.) supporting humanitarian actions in Iraq, working closely with other IASC Clusters working within the Iraq Inter Cluster Coordination Group (ICCG), and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) within its mandate to ensure a coherent response to emergencies in Iraq.   To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have? - Education: An advanced university degree in one of the following fields is required: international development, human rights, psychology, sociology, international law, or another relevant social science field. - Experience: A minimum of eight years of professional experience in social development planning and management in child protection related areas, at the international level, is required. Experience working in a developing country is considered as an asset. Relevant experience in programme development in child protection related areas in a UN system agency or organization is considered as an asset. Experience in both development and humanitarian contexts is an added advantage. - Language Requirements: Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of another official UN language or local language of the duty station is considered as an asset.   For every Child, you demonstrate? The value and competencies required for this post are?.

WASH Cluster Coordinator (Tigray Response) - P4

Ethiopia, Tigray, Mekelle - UNICEF

  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, a future The humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia due to the armed conflict between the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) and the Federal Government which started in November 2020 has moved into its sixth month. The security situation in Tigray remains volatile and unpredictable. According to the [Humanitarian Needs Overview](https://www.humanitarianresponse.info/sites/www.humanitarianresponse.info/files/documents/files/ethiopia_2021_humanitarian_needs_overview_hno.pdf) (HNO), the conflict in the Tigray region has prompted a major displacement within the region and outside, with a large part of the regions 5.7 million inhabitants in need of emergency assistance and protection. While the entire internally displaced persons (IDP) caseload across Tigray and neighbouring regions are still being determined, it is estimated that there are over 1 million IDP's in Tigray region.  Mekelle city alone, according to internal UNICEF reports, has over 38,000 IDPs located in several sites, reports have been received about the additional caseload of IDPs including in Adigrat (128,000), Shire (564,000), Axum (48,500), Adwa (234,400), and Abi-Adi (7,300). As a consequence of the conflict, the relocation of refugees from Hitsats and Shimelba to May-Ayni and Adi-Harush camps is ongoing with a high number (estimated at 38,000refugess) remaining unaccounted for, including unaccompanied and separated children (UASC). UNHCR and ARRA are yet to provide an updated information on the numbers of refugees in the Region, it is estimated there around 60,000 men, women, girls and boys that are registered as refugees in Tigray region.  A complete communication blackout was experienced again in February 2021 affecting the humanitarian operations, and limiting the ability to collect, assess and share information on emerging humanitarian needs. With better access for humanitarian actors, serious allegations of violence and atrocities are being reported. Access to most towns and rural villages is still a challenge as insecurity is still an issue due to the ongoing fighting in the region. Most water supply infrastructure have been damaged or looted, as a result of the conflict. Consequently, people in the communities and in IDP sites are experiencing severe water supply shortages. Sanitation and hygiene conditions are poor and the risks of disease outbreak is considered very high. Based the OCHA sitrep from 19 April 2021[[1]](#_ftn1), COVID-19 services have been drastically reduced and, according to WASH Cluster estimates, around 250 motorized water pumping systems in towns are out of order due to lack of fuel and electricity, damage, looting, and vandalizing. Concerningly, the status of some 11,000 hand pumps in rural areas is unknown due to access constraints. The situation is particularly dire in sites for internally displaced people. In view of the foregoing it is evident that there are several players and actors and there is urgent need to coordinate the activities of all stakeholders providing emergency WASH services to the affected populations. This will require someone will appropriate skills and experience of complex emergencies and demonstrated ability to work effectively with different organisations.

Education Cluster Coordinator (Tigray Response) - P3

Ethiopia, Tigray, Mekelle - UNICEF

  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 In Ethiopia, humanitarian organisations ? both UN and non-UN are functioning under the cluster approach. The cluster approach ensures clear leadership, predictability and accountability in international responses to humanitarian emergencies by clarifying the division of labour among organizations and better defining their roles and responsibilities within the different sectors of the response. It aims to make the international humanitarian community better organised and more accountable and professional, so that it can be a better partner for the affected people, host governments, local authorities, local civil society and resourcing partners. This post is critical for the scaling up of UNICEF and education cluster partners response in Northern Ethiopia after the conflict which started in November 2020 between the regional and federal government. This post will thus function under this approach, with clear responsibilities for coordination as designated by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Humanitarian Coordinator and on behalf of UNICEF as the co-leader with Save the Children of the IASC Education Cluster for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP), in Tigray Region, Ethiopia.
