Job Description:

  • Context For WWF, responsible cocoa and wood production in the Congo Basin offers an opportunity for sustainable development, enhancing the livelihood of the local communities that depend on it and minimizing its footprint on the environment and biodiversity. WWF believes that when forest and agricultural operations including cocoa production and wood harvesting are sustainably managed, they can preserve and restore critical habitats, help protect watersheds, and improve soil health and water quality. Unsustainable wood harvesting and cocoa production, such as full sun practices with complete clearing of forestlands may on the contrary have serious impacts on people and the environment. One of the emerging activities in this field is the Dutch government funded Mobilising More 4 Climate (MoMo4C) program. MoMo4C is a five-year program that aims to bring together entrepreneurs, firms, policymakers, investors and civil society organisations to make green business propositions that tackle the impacts and causes of climate change at a landscape level in developing countries, and to attract investments to implement these initiatives. Mobilising More 4 Climate focuses on developing business propositions for climate-smart agriculture, sustainable water management, food security and ecosystem restoration solutions. These should contribute to climate-resilient development in the landscapes where they are proposed. Mobilising More 4 Climate will facilitate public-private collaboration and attract investments that will scale up such climate action projects. The overall objective of Mobilising More 4 Climate is to link entrepreneurs and companies with potential business cases for climate action to policymakers, investors and civil society organisations to further strengthen these business propositions and ensure a positive climate, environmental and social impact at a landscape level. In Cameroon, the MoMO4C program has identified cacao, community forestry and non-timber forest products (NTFPs) as the key sectors to focus on. As part of this work, WWF wants to have an overview of Financial Flows in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. This will allow the program to identify the financial size of the sector, the main actors, the main funding systems in the sector and how they are interlinked. This will help to identify opportunities and further direct the focus of the program in developing pipelines of climate adaptation projects and by designing instruments that can attract public, private and/or blended finance. Objectives The overall objective of this consultancy is to obtain a better understanding of the financial flows in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon which will help WWF develop a strategy to influence these sectors. The specific objectives are to: Identify the overall financial size of the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon, the different main current actors (suppliers, buyers) in this sector, the size of their financial role in this sector and their financial interconnections; Identify the major current and future actors in the private and finance sectors that invest, provide loans or insurance to sourcing and supplying in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. Determine to which extend the actors in the private and finance sectors have assessed the exposure to operational and financial risks associated with ecologic impacts of climate change to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. Identify potential pressure points with the key actors and potentially successful ways to engage with these actors. Activities: Revise approach and develop a detailed work plan Prepare an overview of the actors in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. This overview will be presented in a short report which also includes an estimate of the accuracy (completeness) of the assessment of financial flows that can be done based on this data and advise on how to proceed with the steps c. to f. hereunder. Identify the overall financial size of the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon and identify financial flows and their financial interconnections, focusing on the full supply chain: key companies (1st and 2nd tier suppliers) and their sourcing companies to identify approximately 75% of capital directed into the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. Identify the major current and future actors in the finance sector that invest, provide loans or insurance to sourcing and supplying in the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. By: Gathering information through traditional financial sources and resources where available. Conduct interviews with local experts/informants from local producers, producer groups, industries, ministries and banks or with foreign institutions where necessary. On-site where possible, or by telephone/ZOOM. For each key actor quantify financial exposure to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors and to which extend the actors in the private and finance sectors have assessed the exposure to financial risks associated with ecologic impacts of climate change to the cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors in Cameroon. Synthesise data and compile lists of key actors. Recommendations on ways of engagement with these actors. Produce a report to document these findings. Outputs Proposed detailed work plan with defined timelines and research approach according to the present terms of reference Report with an overview of available data, which includes an estimate of the accuracy of the assessment that can be done, based on this data. In other words; with what percentage of confidence can we indicate the 75% financial flows in the relevant sectors based on available data? Based on this estimate, the core team will decide to go ahead with steps c. to f. defined under the Activities section One technical report with: Identified financial flows, quantified if/when possible, related to key actors. Identified key players from the private and finance sectors responsible for these financial flows (75% of capital directed to cacao and community forestry (wood/NTFPs) sectors) at present or in the future. Profile of the leading public and private financial institutions and private sector actors identified, including: Environmental and social criteria considered in their capital allocation, lending, and business decision making, going beyond project funding. Main opportunities to bring them to sustainable finance. Main barriers to their engagement with sustainable finance. Offer recommendations on how to engage with these actors and mainstream ecological impacts in their investment decisions and lending policies and promote investment that contributes to better management of natural systems and governance. All primary information collected on investments and investors should be deposited in a file made accessible to the project.

Job Description:

  • Search for Common Ground (Search) is seeking a consultant who can provide baseline information to guide planning and implementation of a project in Northern Cameroon aimed at building trust and collaboration among citizens, law enforcement and justice sector actors. We are interested in understanding the current level of trust and collaboration that exists, and in identifying conflict sensitive and inclusive approaches to building this trust. Consultant's research proposals should include a plan to analyze current context across gender, age, and religious demographics. Candidates' teams should have experience researching evidence to inform the connection between planned programming, the context, and the expected changes from planned programming. Candidates' teams should also have experience transferring research skills to local partners. Search for Common Ground Search is an international conflict transformation NGO that aims to transform the way individuals, groups, governments and companies deal with conflict, away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative solutions. Headquartered in Washington DC, USA, and Brussels, Belgium, with 52 field offices in over 30 countries, Search designs and implements multifaceted, culturally appropriate and conflict-sensitive programs using a diverse range of tools, including media and training, to promote dialogue, increase knowledge and determine a positive shift in behaviors. Cameroon faces escalating crises that threaten the relative peace and security the country has enjoyed since independence. This presents risks to impact several key overall development indicators, including education and socio-economic welfare. Search and our local partner, Local Youth Corner (LOYOC), have designed an innovative 24-month project to foster trust building and collaboration among and between citizens, law enforcement, and justice sector actors in Cameroon. LOYOC, an experienced local civil society organization, will lead implementation, capitalizing on their extensive experience across Cameroon. We will combine an iterative series of capacity building, trust building activities, and platforms for dialogue and joint action planning to meet the project goal and objectives. In addition, local ownership and respect to culture, religion, and traditions are streamlined throughout all activities and approaches, in order to maximize impact and promote sustainability. The Project Search for Common Ground (Search) is supporting our local implementing partner, Local Youth Corner (LOYOC), to implement a project to foster trust building and collaboration on security among and between citizens, law enforcement, and justice sector actors within communities vulnerable to violent extremism in the Far North region of Cameroon. The aim of the project is supported by two objectives and four expected results as outlined below: Objective 1: To improve trust and constructive dialogue among and between citizens, law enforcement, and justice sector actors. ER 1.1. Law enforcement, justice sector actors, and key community leaders and influencers have strengthened capacity to constructively communicate with and engage citizens on justice and security. ER 1.2. Improved platforms to foster understanding and facilitate constructive dialogue among and between communities, law enforcement, and justice sector actors. Objective 2: To strengthen collaboration among and between citizens, law enforcement, and justice sector actors on shared security issues, including VE. ER 2.1 Joint community-level security mechanisms and protocols are developed and advanced by citizens, law enforcement, and local authorities. ER 2.2 Citizens have improved access to information on and positive examples of collaborative security, justice, and peace processes. We will combine an iterative series of capacity building, trust building activities, and platforms for dialogue and joint action planning to meet the project goal and objectives. In addition, local ownership, youth empowerment, and respect to culture, religion, and traditions are streamlined throughout all activities and approaches, in order to maximize impact and promote sustainability. Our theory of change is that: Theory of Change: If law enforcement and justice sector actors have improved capacity to engage constructively and collaboratively with citizens on security challenges, including VE; and If citizens have improved understanding of the mission of security and justice sectors and priorities of law enforcement; and If these stakeholders have joint platforms for regular dialogue and trust building and are then empowered to jointly develop community security mechanisms, underpinned by newfound trust and mutual-accountability in one another; Then overall community trust of and collaboration with law enforcement and justice sector actors will improve Because these stakeholders will benefit from a holistic approach to trust building based on capacity building, dialogue, and collaborative action, and will see each other as partners in addressing shared security issues. Goals and Objectives As the project commences, we require a consultant who will carry out a baseline study ahead of project implementation to set project indicators, assess the context to inform project strategy, and map and identify target stakeholders, including community leaders and influencers, law enforcement, and justice sector actors. The objective of the baseline study is to establish the baseline situation of the project and to provide information on the relevance of the approach to the context. Specifically, the baseline should respond to the following questions: Assess the current context (conflict dynamics, interventions done so far and gaps in these, peace opportunities) to inform the project strategy; Assess gender, age and social inclusion dynamics in project target locations, as relevant to proposed intervention; propose conflict sensitive strategies for including these demographics in the intervention Inform Search on the relevance of the proposed approaches and target location based on the above conflict dynamics assessments; recommend adaptations to proposed approaches as required Map and identify target stakeholders, including community leaders and influencers, law enforcement, and justice sector actors, and their motivations Conduct a risk analysis to be taken into account in order to avoid damaging the context and exacerbating existing conflicts, and proffer conflict sensitive approaches to mitigate these In addition to these, the study will provide baseline information and data for key project qualitative and quantitative indicators as included in the project M&E plan, as well as propose additional indicators based on project objectives and findings from the study. Findings from this evaluation will be used to inform future program design, planning and implementation. The reports will be shared widely with project participants and partners, and presented during Search Cameroon and Global programs. The reports - with sensitive details redacted - will eventually be published on Search's website and shared with other learning networks in order to enhance contributions to Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) programming and the broader field of peace-building in Cameroon, regionally, and in the world. Keys questions of the Study Who are the current formal and informal law enforcement and justice sector actors? Where are they present?

What adaptations to the proposed intervention need to be considered to make the intervention more relevant? What stakeholders, including community leaders and influencers, law enforcement, and justice sector actors are relevant for this intervention? What are their motivations and how do these motivations align with the objectives and expected outcomes of this intervention? How much has gender, age and social inclusion been a priority in processes to build trust between communities, law enforcement and justice sector actors, and to what gains? How can gender, age and social inclusion be incorporated into the proposed intervention in ways that are conflict sensitive and Do No Harm to communities? What are the possible risks to or from this intervention? How can these be mitigated in a conflict sensitive manner that does no harm to target communities?

With the aim to resolve the crisis, the President of the Republic called for a Major National Dialogue, that brought together more than 600 participants from all 10 regions of the country. Third quarter of participants to the Dialogue came from the NWSW regions. The Head of State instructed the Prime Minister, Head of the Government to preside over the Major National Dialogue. Among other recommendations, the Major National Dialogue recommended the reconstruction of North West and South West regions. The Government of Cameroon and UNDP collaborated to the formulation of the Presidential Plan for Reconstruction and Development (PPRD) of the North West and South West regions. The PPRD is a component of the National Development Plan 2020-2030 (post DSCE), aiming at reducing the effects of the socio-political and security crisis for the affected communities in the NW/SW regions. The PPRD feeds into the government efforts to resolve the current crisis. This initiative is complementary to other key reforms such as the establishment of a Special Status for the NW/SW regions. Confronted with complex development challenges, the Government intends to emphasize on governance, economic recovery and crisis prevention in order to consolidate the peace process.

Job Description:

  • Want to make a positive difference to the future of people and our one shared home, the Earth? Working at WWF could be your opportunity of a lifetime. All around the world, people are waking up to the deepening crisis of nature loss. A growing realization that nature is our life-support system. And that nobody will be spared from the impacts of its loss. Here at WWF, we are helping to tackle this enormous global challenge. Our people come from hugely diverse backgrounds and with a variety of expertise, ranging from HR and finance to advocacy and conservation science. We welcome applications from anyone who believes they can help us create a better future for people and wildlife. What we do We are an independent conservation organization, striving to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife. From individuals and communities to business and government, we are part of a growing coalition calling on world leaders to set nature on the path to recovery by 2030. Together, we seek to protect and restore natural habitats, stop the mass extinction of wildlife, and make the way we produce and consume sustainable. Context and justification The Central African sub-region hosts significant populations of both forest and savannah elephants. Unfortunately, these elephants are continuously facing a multitude of threats, including illegal killing for ivory and other products, conflict with humans, local overabundance and loss and fragmentation of habitat. The magnitude of these threats, for some elephant populations, is so severe that their survival in the wild is in jeopardy[1]. A report prepared for the 65th meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Standing Committee (SC65) indicated that over 20,000 African Elephants were poached across the continent in 2013[2] and prior to that another credible estimate suggested that 100,000 elephants were lost to poaching from 2010 through 20122. The SC65 report indicates that 2011 was the worst in recent years for illegal trafficking of ivory[3], but an increase in the number of large-scale seizures of ivory (shipments over 500 kg) in 2013 may signal an even greater surge that year. Because of inadequate enforcement efforts and the fact that demand has been on the rise in certain parts of the world, a number of African countries have seen their elephant populations decimated by poachers. Maisels et al. report a 62% decline in Central African forest elephant populations between 2002 and 2011[4]. The decrease in elephant numbers has been acknowledged as a major concern, not only by governments, NGOs and conservationists, but also by indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLC) whose livelihoods are directly affected. Central Africa accounts for a large proportion of the estimated continental range for African Elephants, but knowledge of its current population size is the poorest of four sub-regions. Central African elephants are highly threatened and proper measures and mechanisms must be put in place and implemented effectively to protect remaining populations. It is in this context that the CITES Parties instituted a National Ivory Action Plan (NIAP) process under the direction of the Standing Committee in 19 out of 22 countries identified with the aim of strengthening controls on the trade in ivory and ivory markets, and helping to combat the illegal trade in ivory. These Parties were identified following an analysis of ivory seizure data held in the Elephant Trade Information System (ETIS) prepared for the 16th meeting of the Conference of the Parties of CITES (CoP16) in Bangkok, Thailand, in March 2013 (link: https://www.cites.org/eng/cop/16/doc/index.php). The countries most heavily affected by the illegal trade in ivory are the ones that are presently part of the NIAP process, having been categorized as countries of “primary concern” (eight Parties), “secondary concern” (eight Parties) and “importance to watch” (six Parties)[5]. In Central Africa, Cameroon, Congo, DRC and Gabon were originally all identified as Parties of “secondary concern” and have been requested to develop NIAPs, while. Throughout the NIAP process, the status of those Parties was updated respectively at CoP17 and CoP18 and at SC66, SC69 and SC70 based on an analysis of the Monitoring of Illegal Killing of Elephants (MIKE) and the Elephant Trade Information System (ETIS) reports[6]. WWF and TRAFFIC are supporting the development and implementation of NIAPs in the four Central African countries abovementioned since the launching of this process in 2013. WWF is therefore seeking the services of an Individual Consultant to carry out an assessment of progress made by Cameroon, Congo, DRC and Gabon in the implementation of their NIAPs. Methodology Considerations The evaluation methodology should consist of: The compiling and review of all relevant documents in relation to the topic of the consultancy; Induction meeting and interviews with WWF and TRAFFIC relevant staff; Interviews with key resource persons; Drafting of deliverables (assessment report and a brief consultancy report); Workshop with WWF staff in Yaoundé to present and discuss deliverables. The consultant may propose additional methodological components to be agreed upon with WWF CCPO. However, due to restrictions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic, physical meetings will be restricted and international travels might not be considered. Duration of activities The consultation shall be carried out over a period of 30 (thirty) working days, between September 15 and October 31, 2020. The Consultant shall provide a schedule of activities based on the approach and for the period mentioned above. Financial Terms If considered, the costs of international flights will be covered by the project. All domestic travels within countries will also be arranged and paid for by the project (local transportation, hotel and food will be based on WWF perdiem rates). An honorarium will be offered based on the estimated number of days of work. Visa cost will be reimbursed based on real cost. Expression of Interest All candidates interested in conducting this assessment on a consultant basis should submit, no later than September 20th, 2020 a detailed technical proposal including: A curriculum vitae detailing his/her experience in relation to the topic of the consultancy; A technical offer including a description of approach, comments on the Terms of Reference, including a proposed chronogram of activities; A detailed budget proposal which takes into account the financial conditions specified in this ToR and specifies the honorarium (daily rate) as well as any other costs. The estimated end date of the consultancy will be October 30, 2020. All applications should be sent to recruit-cam@wwfcam.org , with reference “Central Africa NIAPs assessment”. Thank you in advance for your interest in this position. Please note that only seriously considered candidates will be contacted for a follow-up. If you have not been contacted three (3) days after the closing date, consider your application unsuccessful.

Job Description:

  • JOB PURPOSE : To provide effective specialized support for the development of an SBCC strategy for the promotion of appropriate food and nutrition practices across WFP Cameroon's portfolio as prescribed by the country strategic plan (CSP 2018-2020) and CSP 2022-2026 under development. The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency, fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need. Social behavior changes communication (SBCC) as key determinant of good nutrition is emphasized as integral parts of all efforts to reduce malnutrition in the WFP Cameroon country strategic plan (CSP) for 2018-2020 and beyond. However, the unavailability of an SBCC strategy to inform on intended changes in behavior remains a big bottleneck in the achievement of CSP outcomes particularly that referring to reduction in malnutrition rates in children and other nutritionally vulnerable groups. To contribute to fighting malnutrition, WFP in Cameroon is implementing a nutrition programme in collaboration with its partners with special focus on the East, the northern, the North West and Southwest regions of Cameroon. The programme also focused on the provision of imported specialized nutritious foods to prevent and treat malnutrition. In the next CSP starting in 2022, WFP aims to prioritize home-grown solutions such as: strengthening sustainable access to and demand for local nutritious food, and to strengthen the capacity of, partners, health staff and volunteers on SBCC. Improving nutrition nearly always requires some level of behavior change. Social & Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) is one approach that may help with the adaptation of current behaviors, such as encouraging a person to make more nutritious food choices at the market. SBCC may also promote the adoption of entirely new behaviors, for instance, supporting a household to consume special nutritious foods optimally and make the appropriate choices when producing or buying food. SBCC is a cost-effective intervention for improving the nutrition outcomes of WFP programmes in Cameroon. SBCC also forms an important component of the national nutrition agenda and the government and other stakeholders, notably UNICEF have produced a number of tools and materials largely in the area of infant and young child feeding. The purpose of this consultancy is to develop a SBCC strategy for WFP that will complement its nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions and that is aligned to the national nutrition communication strategy and the WFP corporate strategy on SBCC, to contribute to improving nutrition outcomes in the current CSP 2018-2021 and second-generation of Country Strategic Plan (CSP 2022-2026). The National consultant will work closely with partners such as UNICEF and Ministry of public health to avoid duplication and in a spirit of cooperation and partnership and will ensure that the comparative advantages of WFP is maximized. The national consultant role will be mainly focused on social and behavioral changes that can increase the nutritional impact of existing WFP interventions such as Nutrition, General Food Assistance (CBT and in-kind), resilience, school meals, emergency preparedness, etc. KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES (not all-inclusive, within delegated authority): Under the direct supervision of the Country Office Nutrition Officer, and in collaboration with other WFP Cameroon units such as the programme and the communication units, the consultant will be responsible for: WFP Cameroon SBCC strategy and implementation plan development: Develop a theory of change that review existing and new entry points for SBCC activities in the CSP, and map and categorize them in relation to focus audience / beneficiary group and program activity, or other relevant categories. Conduct formative research, to develop an overall understanding of the sociocultural, behavioral and community contexts that influence the appropriate behaviors (barriers and enabling factors) for achieving the desired WFP nutrition program outcomes. This should include the conduct of a desk review of relevant work and programmes and a data collection to address gaps identified in the desk review. Develop an SBCC strategy that outlines formative findings, describes target audiences, articulates the channels to reach target audiences, as well as suggests SBCC timeline, location of activities, potential partners and budget estimates. The strategy should also identify technical and strategic partnership and monitoring and evaluation considerations, driven by the SMART behavioral change objectives. Support to technical secretariat of inter-ministerial committee for fight against malnutrition in Cameroon(CILM) to develop the National Nutrition communication strategy Collaborate with the communication team of the CILM Secretariat to develop the national Nutrition communication strategy Ensure alignment of WFP's strategy with the national communication strategy Deliverables at the end of the contract: Provision of a detailed workplan by end of first week of consultancy A map of SBCC activities to be carried out by WFP, organized by agreed categories and a map / overview of international/regional and national stakeholders (including academic institutions) with expertise in SBCC (for nutrition) developed by end of Month 5 of the consultancy The report of the formative research highlighting the key behaviors to change, audience segment profiles, preferred channels, salient words/phrases, and other considerations by end of month 3 of the consultancy A comprehensive, culturally appropriate and context specific SBCC strategy tailored to the needs, and aligned with the Government's pre-existing multi-sectoral, multistakeholder effort to prevent stunting by end of month The SBCC strategy document includes an implementation plan and costing A list of tailored messages based on the results of the formative research for promotion as part of WFP nutrition activities by end of month Interested candidates should apply via the website, https://unjobs.org/vacancies

  • TERMES DE REFERENCE POUR LE RECRUTEMENT D’UN CONSULTANT EN CHARGE DE L’ELABORATION D’UN OUTIL DE SENSIBILISATION DES OSC AFRICAINES SUR LA BIODIVERSITE, LE PLAIDOYER POUR LE NOUVEAU CADRE MONDIAL POST 2020 DE LA BIODIVERSITE, ET DE L’ANIMATION AU CAMEROUN D’UN ATELIER DE FORMATION DES FORMATEURS (OSC) SUR LES TECHNIQUES DE PLAIDOYER INTRODUCTION La tendance à la diminution du nombre d’espèces, au déclin de leurs populations ainsi qu’à la dégradation des écosystèmes se poursuit depuis 2010. Un million d’espèces animales et végétales sont menacées d’extinction. La santé des écosystèmes dont nous dépendons et dont dépendent toutes les autres espèces se dégrade aujourd’hui à une vitesse sans précédent. Cette situation affaiblit les moyens de subsistance, la sécurité alimentaire, la santé et la qualité de vie à travers le monde, et entraîne en outre des risques économiques et financiers. Malgré leur progression, les actions mises en œuvre pour la conservation et la gestion plus durable des ressources naturelles restent insuffisantes pour enrayer les causes directes et indirectes à l’origine de la dégradation de la nature. Il est aujourd’hui urgent d’inverser le déclin de la biodiversité et de préserver les écosystèmes si nous voulons atteindre les objectifs de développement durable d’ici à 2050. Pour faire passer le défi au sommet de l'agenda mondial en 2020-2021 (initialement prévu en 2020, un retard dû à la récente Pandémie de COVID-19), le WWF a lancé sa stratégie d'engagement des parties prenantes avec la facilitation du projet New Deal Afrique : Cameroun. Ce projet soutient le WWF Cameroun pour contribuer à stopper le déclin de la biodiversité mondiale et promouvoir un New Deal pour améliorer l'intégration de la biodiversité dans les décisions publiques et privées, au Cameroun, et plus largement. Le programme prévoit entre autres de renforcer les capacités d’OSC locales d’environnement et de développement à délivrer leurs messages auprès des autorités publiques nationales et locales, et du grand public. C’est dans ce cadre que le WWF Cameroun recherche un consultant pour (1) la rédaction d’un Outil pédagogique de sensibilisation à destination des OSC locales (pour les Pays d’Afrique Francophone et anglophone) et (2) la formation de formateurs (OSC), au Cameroun, sur les techniques de plaidoyer pour le besoin de protection de la nature. OBJECTIFS DE LA CONSULTATION L’objectif principal est d’élaborer un outil pédagogique en français et en anglais pour renforcer les capacités des OSC locales à former et sensibiliser les citoyens sur l’importance de la biodiversité et au besoin de sa conservation ; ainsi que les former à mieux influencer l’adoption par les Etats d’un cadre post 2020 sur la biodiversité avec des objectifs plus ambitieux et réalisables. L’objectif secondaire sera d’animer comme Facilitateur un atelier de formation de formateurs (OSC camerounaises) sur l’Outil et les techniques de plaidoyer pour un New Deal for Nature and People, qui sera organisé au Cameroun. RESULTATS ATTENDUS Les résultats attendus seront les suivants : 1. La production d’un Outil pédagogique de sensibilisation des OSC A titre indicatif, cet Outil de sensibilisation devra être un outil pédagogique sur : La Sensibilisation des OSC aux valeurs de la nature La gouvernance actuelle de la biodiversité en Afrique et les leviers possibles Le cadre post 2020 et la CBD Le “Comment agir” des OSC pour sensibiliser et influencer le public et les décideurs. Le Consultant devra enrichir et compléter ce contenu. 2. La formation des formateurs (OSC) La formation des formateurs devra être organisée au Cameroun et réunir au moins 10 Organisations de la Société Civiles prédéfinies au début du projet comme des acteurs ayant un niveau d’influence élevé dans la chaine de l’exploitation illégale de la biodiversité.

Job Description:

  • The Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC), led by UNICEF, was established in 2006 as part of the Humanitarian Reform process, which aimed to improve the effectiveness of humanitarian response programmes by ensuring greater predictability, accountability and partnership. The Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) is a partnership that includes international NGOs, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, UN organizations, donors and individuals. In 2015, the GNC undertook an assessment of its technical role along with the Rapid Response Team (RRT) evaluation. Both exercises identified serious gaps in addressing nutrition technical needs in humanitarian contexts. In March 2016, the GNC constituted a Technical Task Force (TTF) co-chaired by UNICEF and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to review recommendations and propose a mechanism to address nutrition technical gaps. One mechanism was endorsed in March 2017 and is called the “Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition” (GTAM). The GTAM is a common global mechanism endorsed by over 40 Global Nutrition Cluster partners to provide systematic, predictable, timely and coordinated nutrition technical assistance in order to meet the nutrition rights and needs of people affected by emergencies. The Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM) is co-led by UNICEF as the Cluster Lead Agency, together with World Vision and is articulated around 3 pillars: pillar one-provide technical advice, pillar two-facilitate consensus driven guidance, pillar three-provide specialized technical expertise. As part of pillar three and considering long process of advertising, selecting and recruiting individual consultants for nutrition in emergencies, development or preparedness work, the GTAM has established rosters of consultants in different technical areas, regularly updated, that allow to speed up recruitment process at country level. There are several rosters established, namely in Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IYCF-E) Micronutrient supplementation in emergencies Integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions – current roster Needs assessment and analysis for nutrition outcomes (established outside of the scope of current recruitment) How can you make a difference? The GTAM is building a roster of professionals with experience in integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions from which to draw consultants to be recommended to countries in need of nutrition support staff. Candidates who apply to the Integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions Roster will be screened based on different technical categories, including National guideline development or revision Cluster strategy, work plan or scale up plan development Agency strategy, work plan or scale up plan development Programme implementation and monitoring Candidates can be selected in one or more of the above technical categories, depending on their qualifications and interest. If approved by the reviewing committee, the candidate will remain in the GTAM Consultant Rosters database during 36 months, unless requested to remove her/him earlier. During this period, candidates might be consulted several times, depending on requests flow. Any partners working in Nutrition (UN agencies, NGOs, Governments) can contact the GTAM Consultant Rosters to ask for recommendation of consultants. Consultancy proposed may range from 4 weeks to 11.5 months, depending on demand, project specifications and funding availability. Consultants recommended by the GTAM Consultant Roster and hired by the requesting agency will be issued a contract which is subject to: UNICEF General Conditions of Contracts for the Services of Consultants / Individual Contractors if hired by UNICEF, or governed by the individual partner conditions for individual consultant agreements if hired by another UN agency/NGO/Government. Consultants may be requested to work in any country with a nutrition cluster or a nutrition sector, or remotely, as determined by the specification of the project. The work may include incidental travel to participate in field work, workshops or conferences; such travel will be governed by respective UNICEF/UN agency/NGO travel policies for consultants. Applying to the Global Technical Assistance Mechanism Rosters Being part of the roster means that your profile went through a thorough vetting process and is available to more than 40 NGOs and UN agencies worldwide which are regularly looking for consultants. There will be several rosters established, each valid for 36 months. This roster is for Integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions in emergencies only.
