Job Description:

  • The goal of the PPRD is to: Strengthen social cohesion Rehabilitate essential infrastructure; Revitalize the local economy. In order to address the needs of people in NW/SW in an integrated and coordinated way, the PPRD’s priority interventions ensure that sectoral and sub-sectoral needs are considered in relation to each other. UNDP was designed as the Government of Cameroon's strategic partner for the implementation of the PPRD. UNDP will focus on the first leg of the programme related to recovery interventions. Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in a subsequent phase. The recovery, reconstruction and development activities are guided by national policy frameworks and priorities set out in the NDP to ensure coherence and consistency of policy across the Cameroonian territory. UNDP has an extensive experience of supporting recovery in various crisis contexts in the world and also recognizes that its interpretation of the concept has been different in different contexts. For UNDP, recovery aims to establish sustainable economic growth and human development while addressing the factors that could lead to a recurrence of conflict. Recovery is not about restoring pre-conflict economic or institutional arrangements. It is about transformation. Recovery is important is to reverse some of the effects of the conflict, to generate incomes and to improve social services for the long-suffering populations. In the short to medium term some hardship can be alleviated by aid, but ultimately local actors must generate their own resources to meet the bulk of their population’s needs. This requires economic recovery and growth. UNDP Recovery Programme in the Northwest and Southwest will prioritize human, social and local economic aspects of recovery (2 to 3 years). Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in subsequent phases (within a 10-year time frame). UNDP is already engaged in recovery in the Far North, and through the small grant mechanisms in the Northwest and Southwest. UNDP Recovery Programme is based on a set of principles of engagement and will be implemented according to its mandate, rules, and regulations and based on impartiality. In addition, UNDP will follow several Principles of Engagement, namely: ensure that all stakeholders of the programme are vetted and that resources are not allocated to former and potential Human Rights violators; A people-centered and vulnerability-based approach to select the most vulnerable communities, and step-by-step approach initially targeting accessible areas before moving to more sensitive areas; Ensure local ownership, triangulation of information and deconflicting of activities; Coordinate to reduce duplications or gaps, identify pitfalls and build on synergies; Mitigate political instrumentalization. In promoting Recovery in the Northwest and Southwest, UNDP will work closely with and support the capacity reinforcement of civil society organisations with which UNDP has a long-standing partnership since the beginning of its Early Recovery activities in 2016, and faith-based organisations. UNDP will contribute to boost the local economy through the selection of local contractors. UNDP will also partner with UN Agencies. The conflict in the Northwest and Southwest has caused large-scale damage, spurred a humanitarian crisis and exacerbated existing social tensions. The populations urgently need to receive humanitarian assistance and to recover from both the conflict and neglect. The needs and vulnerabilities of the affected populations must be addressed beyond immediate humanitarian action through time-critical actions that can alleviate the crisis and mitigate its impact, helping people to get back on their feet through recovery assistance and reducing the dependency on humanitarian aid. UNDP Recovery Programme’s proposed inception phase will cover three programmatic outputs: 1. Strengthen social cohesion UNDP focus will be placed on distributing standard packages of materials and tools to the populations to enable them to repair or rebuild their homes; capacity building workshops; establishment of internal mediators and peace networks; and psychosocial support. 2. Rehabilitate social services UNDP will work with local organisations and local contractors and focus on mobilising materials and equipment for community-based social services such as primary health care or education. 3. Strengthen local economy UNDP will focus on providing technical and managerial support; farming equipment; markets repairs; income-generating activities; vocational training; micro-grants as start-up capital for beneficiaries’ joint-ventures. Under the guidance and direct supervision of UNDP Resident Representative in Cameroon, the Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor acts as a senior advisor on all aspects of peacebuilding and recovery in NWSW regions. The Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor develops the strategies and approaches allowing for the implementation of UNDP crisis programmatic interventions in Cameroon and works in close collaboration with Government officials, other UN Agencies, INGOs, UNDP HQ, technical advisors and experts, multilateral and bilateral donors, recovery influencers and civil society to strategically position UNDP in UN peacebuilding and recovery approaches, and to implement UNDP’s Recovery program.

Job Description:

  • Cameroon is a lower-middle-income country with a population of 26 million (World Population Review, 2019). Located along the Atlantic Ocean, it shares its borders with Chad, the Central African Republic (CAR), Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Nigeria. Two of its border regions with Nigeria – the North West (NW) and the South West (SW) - are Anglophone, while the rest of the country is Francophone. Cameroon has enjoyed decades of stability in a fragile region. Today it is battling Boko Haram in the North, dealing with an influx of refugees from the CAR in the East—and, most devastatingly, faced with the Anglophone crisis in the West. English speakers, who make up about a fifth of Cameroon’s population, have complained for years about discrimination in education, law and economic opportunities held by the Francophone majority (AFP, 2019). The socio-political crisis began in October 2016 in the Anglophone NW and SW regions. First lawyers went on strike against the erosion of the English-style common-law system. Teachers then joined the protests, pointing out, among other things, the designation of French-only speakers in classrooms (The Economist, 2019). The social unrest mutated into armed conflict at the end of 2017. In the last two years, the crisis has forcibly displaced a large part of the population either internally or to Nigeria. Numerous cases of human rights abuses including sexual violence and discrimination against women have been widely reported. Seven non-state armed groups (NSAGs) are currently in positions of strength in most rural areas. The security forces reacted, and since mid-2018 have inflicted casualties on the separatists. However, they have not regained full control over rural areas nor prevented repeated separatist attacks in major towns of the NW and SW (International Crisis Group, 2019). As a result of the crisis, several public services have been severely damaged - if not completely destroyed - depriving thousands of people the right to access basic social services, including health, education and other basic administrative services necessary for their well-being. Inadequate public services and lack of economic opportunities, as well as the shutdown of many schools, have made youth from the two affected regions subject to recruitment into NSAGs. The Prime Minister launched the Presidential Plan for Reconstruction and Development (PPRD) in 2020, as a component of the National Development Plan (NDP) that was articulated to reduce the effects of the crisis on populations of the North-West and South-West regions. At the request of the Government of Cameroon, the PPRD will address the immediate needs of the affected populations of the NW and SW regions. The goal of the PPRD is to: Strengthen social cohesion Rehabilitate essential infrastructure; Revitalize the local economy. In order to address the needs of people in NW/SW in an integrated and coordinated way, the PPRD’s priority interventions ensure that sectoral and sub-sectoral needs are considered in relation to each other. UNDP was designed as the Government of Cameroon's strategic partner for the implementation of the PPRD. UNDP will focus on the first leg of the programme related to recovery interventions. Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in a subsequent phase. The recovery, reconstruction and development activities are guided by national policy frameworks and priorities set out in the NDP to ensure coherence and consistency of policy across the Cameroonian territory. UNDP has an extensive experience of supporting recovery in various crisis contexts in the world and also recognizes that its interpretation of the concept has been different in different contexts. For UNDP, recovery aims to establish sustainable economic growth and human development while addressing the factors that could lead to a recurrence of conflict. Recovery is not about restoring pre-conflict economic or institutional arrangements. It is about transformation. Recovery is important is to reverse some of the effects of the conflict, to generate incomes and to improve social services for the long-suffering populations. In the short to medium term some hardship can be alleviated by aid, but ultimately local actors must generate their own resources to meet the bulk of their population’s needs. This requires economic recovery and growth. UNDP Recovery Programme in the Northwest and Southwest will prioritize human, social and local economic aspects of recovery (2 to 3 years). Reconstruction and Development will be undertaken in subsequent phases (within a 10-year time frame). UNDP is already engaged in recovery in the Far North, and through the small grant mechanisms in the Northwest and Southwest. UNDP Recovery Programme is based on a set of principles of engagement and will be implemented according to its mandate, rules, and regulations and based on impartiality. In addition, UNDP will follow several Principles of Engagement, namely: ensure that all stakeholders of the programme are vetted and that resources are not allocated to former and potential Human Rights violators; A people-centered and vulnerability-based approach to select the most vulnerable communities, and step-by-step approach initially targeting accessible areas before moving to more sensitive areas; Ensure local ownership, triangulation of information and deconflicting of activities; Coordinate to reduce duplications or gaps, identify pitfalls and build on synergies; Mitigate political instrumentalization. In promoting Recovery in the Northwest and Southwest, UNDP will work closely with and support the capacity reinforcement of civil society organisations with which UNDP has a long-standing partnership since the beginning of its Early Recovery activities in 2016, and faith-based organisations. UNDP will contribute to boost the local economy through the selection of local contractors. UNDP will also partner with UN Agencies. The conflict in the Northwest and Southwest has caused large-scale damage, spurred a humanitarian crisis and exacerbated existing social tensions. The populations urgently need to receive humanitarian assistance and to recover from both the conflict and neglect. The needs and vulnerabilities of the affected populations must be addressed beyond immediate humanitarian action through time-critical actions that can alleviate the crisis and mitigate its impact, helping people to get back on their feet through recovery assistance and reducing the dependency on humanitarian aid. UNDP Recovery Programme’s proposed inception phase will cover three programmatic outputs: 1. Strengthen social cohesion UNDP focus will be placed on distributing standard packages of materials and tools to the populations to enable them to repair or rebuild their homes; capacity building workshops; establishment of internal mediators and peace networks; and psychosocial support. 2. Rehabilitate social services UNDP will work with local organisations and local contractors and focus on mobilising materials and equipment for community-based social services such as primary health care or education. 3. Strengthen local economy UNDP will focus on providing technical and managerial support; farming equipment; markets repairs; income-generating activities; vocational training; micro-grants as start-up capital for beneficiaries’ joint-ventures.

The Peacebuilding and Recovery Advisor develops the strategies and approaches allowing for the implementation of UNDP crisis programmatic interventions in Cameroon and works in close collaboration with Government officials, other UN Agencies, INGOs, UNDP HQ, technical advisors and experts, multilateral and bilateral donors, recovery influencers and civil society to strategically position UNDP in UN peacebuilding and recovery approaches, and to implement UNDP’s Recovery program.

Job Description:

  • Background An increasing number of countries continue to experience various degrees of complex protracted emergencies, with specific solutions for each of these countries’ context. Central to these responses however is the widely accepted idea that an effective and sustainable response to complex crisis challenges requires a comprehensive long term and multi-faceted approach - that is aimed at identifying and addressing the root causes with a view towards the achievement of the SDGs. There is a recognition that humanitarian, development and peacebuilding (HDP) efforts are complementary and should reinforce each other, and that development institutions and longer-term socioeconomic approaches are needed to prevent economic losses, the impact of disasters and violent conflict, reduce humanitarian needs, sustain peace and eliminate poverty. Member States have issued a global call for the United Nations and the World Bank to work closer together in crisis-affected situations. In May 2016, the World Humanitarian Summit called for a "new way of working" that addresses the humanitarian and development divide by shifting the focus from meeting needs to reducing needs, risks and vulnerability in support of both the SDGs and the immediate requirements of the affected people. These commitments are being met by significant changes in how resources and instruments are responding to the needs of crisis-affected people. In 2017, the UN and WB concluded a Partnership Framework for Crises Affected Situations, setting forth joint focus areas to strengthen the strategic and operational partnership of the two institutions in fragile and crisis-affected settings. Cameroon is a pilot country of the Joint Steering Committee to Advance Humanitarian and Development Collaboration. An enhanced UN-World Bank partnership will achieve greater impact in the Cameroonian crisis-affected regions by ‘leaving no one behind’ and building resilience of the most vulnerable people, reducing poverty, promoting shared prosperity, and sustaining peace. This comes at a time when the World Bank recently launched its first Fragility, Conflict and Violence (FCV) Strategy and the upcoming IDA 19 cycle. This closer collaboration between the UN and the World Bank is also taking place within a context of a broad consensus to operationalize the HDP nexus in Cameroon. In May 2019, the HCT has required the creation of the HDP Nexus Task Force, mandated with the development of the HDP nexus approach in Cameroon. The HDP strategic framework has been endorsed by the HCT and the UNCT in October 2019. The collective outcome is built on the RPBA joint analysis conducted for the Recovery and Consolidation of Peace (RCP) Strategy by the World Bank, the United Nations and the European Union. The HDP Nexus Coordinator will consult with senior government representatives, cooperation and diplomatic missions, private sector and civil society representatives, heads of agency members of the UNCT and HCT for the development of the humanitarian-development-peace nexus approach in Cameroon and seek their support to the operationalization of the approach in areas of convergence. To advance the strategic focus and intent of the UN-WB partnership in Cameroon, and as the focal point for the UN-World Bank partnership, the HDP Nexus Coordinator will ensure the UN’s capacity fully engage in strategic and programmatic coordination with the World Bank and other relevant stakeholders within the HDP nexus approach under the overall responsibility of the UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator. The HC/RC will consult regularly with the World Bank Country Director. Additional capacities are expected to be deployed at the subnational level: Nexus Area Coordinators deployed at department level reporting to the national HDP Nexus Coordinator and local UNV Communal Nexus Officers deployed in municipalities reporting respectively to their nexus area coordinator Duties and Responsibilities Summary of key functions: 1. Under the direct responsibility of the UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator in Cameroon, and a second technical reporting line to the Senior UN-World Bank Partnership Advisor, UN Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA), the HDP Nexus Coordinator will coordinate the overall Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus approach in Cameroon. 2. Lead the multi-stakeholder Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus Task Force and finalize the development of a flexible operational humanitarian-development-peacebuilding framework advancing integrated durable solutions, addressing risks and vulnerabilities, strengthening prevention efforts and reducing needs in order to ensure that we reach the furthest behind. 3. Lead the coordination of joint analyses of crisis-specific contexts, including needs, risks and vulnerabilities affecting populations, and their underlying/root causes. 4. Coordinate among humanitarian, development and peacebuilding partners the implementation of strategies and programmes supporting populations affected by forced displacement in areas of convergence where the complementarity of mandates may enable more effective solutions geared towards conflict prevention. 5. Promote coherent financing strategies with a focus on collective outcomes. 6. As the UN focal point for United Nations and World Bank collaboration, strengthen the UN-WB Partnership focusing on achieving greater impact in crisis-affected regions.
