Language Requirements: Fluency in written and spoken English and French is essential

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.
