Country: South Sudan
Organization: Norwegian Refugee Council
Closing date: 3 Jun 2022

Terms of Reference (TOR)

Background

South Sudan remains one of the most severe protection crises in the world with high levels of GBV and significant gross human rights violations. Protection challenges in the form of violence, coercion, exploitation, discrimination, abuse, deliberate deprivation, or neglect of vulnerable individuals/groups threaten the safety, dignity and wellbeing of displaced and conflict affected persons. Flooding has continued to increase vulnerability and expose communities, particularly children and women, to multiple protection risks including violence, loss of life, injury, family separation, gender-based violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, and other protection risks associated with negative coping mechanisms. Continued displacement has weakened the protective environment, undermined resilience, and challenged recovery due to the extensive destruction of property that accompanied these crises.

Repeated shocks have weakened community-based structures and services, and limitations to access services will continue to push families to adopt negative coping mechanisms that expose the vulnerable, particularly children and women, to violence, exploitation, abuse, recruitment, trafficking, child labor, and forced marriage. According to the 2021 FSMNS+, an average of 7 per cent of children drop out of school due to various reasons including high costs associated with education, forced/early marriage, distance to school, and cattle keeping responsibilities. Continued outbreaks of violence, food insecurity, and floods in some parts of the country continue to weaken the protective environment for children and significantly impair the capacity of families to appropriately care for children, putting them at risk of violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Climate shocks, severe drought, massive flooding, and conflicts have contributed to the increase in GBV risks.

In South Sudan, NRC is through static presence delivering humanitarian assistance and responding to humanitarian needs by providing assistance such as shelter, education, food security, livelihoods, legal assistance, and water, sanitation and hygiene sectors to most vulnerable communities in North (Wau, Alek and Aweil), Jonglei (Bor, Twic East and Akobo), Unity (Mayom, Koch and Leer) and Central Equatoria (Juba and Kajo Keji).

Closing date: 27 May 2022

1.0. INTRODUCTION

Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is an International Non-Governmental Organization and has been operating in South Sudan since 1986. NPA’s programme implementation is structured into three programmes:

i. Civil Society Development Programme:

NPA works in partnership 27 civil society organizations, the work of which is broadly divided into four areas:

  • Conflicts over rights to land and natural resources often occur in settings impacted by urbanization and internal displacement. NPA partners do what they can to mediate in such conflicts and help local communities protect their rights.
  • Freedom of expression and media issues are important. Partners work closely with various radio stations in order to spread information about dialogue, peace and reconciliation and provide training to journalists.
  • Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is a widespread problem in South Sudan. NPA partners work to strengthen women’s rights by mobilizing women’s groups, strengthening legal protection for women and holding public awareness campaigns.
  • NPA supports young adults who promote non-violent conflict resolution. Means to this end include art and performances that encourage peace and reconciliation.

ii. Emergency Response Programme:

This programme focuses on providing food aid to vulnerable populations. The aim of the programme is to save lives and support post-emergency transitional recovery processes through:

  • Provision of in-kind food aid through unconditional support i.e. General Food Distribution (GFD) and conditional support i.e. Food Assistance for Assets (FFA).
  • Provision of emergency recovery livelihoods kits.
  • Provision of unconditional multipurpose cash assistance.
  • Provision of cash grants to Income Generating Activity (IGA) groups.

These projects are carried out by NPA employees in cooperation with local communities.

iii. Rural Development Programme:

NPA’s Rural Development programme focuses on medium to more long-term livelihoods strengthening activities that aim to increase the resilience of conflict-affected households in South Sudan. NPA also supports communities to prevent/mitigate climate change related challenges. The programme activities are implemented directly by NPA and in partnership with 14 local NGOs and Community Based Organizations (CBO’s).

The RD activities are divided into three programming areas:

  • Promotion of increased and diversified household income by supporting income generating activities, access to microfinance though Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA’s), entrepreneurial /business skills transfer, cash for wok and micro enterprise development.
  • Support for increased household food productivity by facilitating access to quality agricultural inputs (seed and tools), fishing kits, post-harvest technologies, smallholder farmer trainings and livestock production interventions (livestock distribution, vaccination and training of pastoralists).
  • Promotion of peace building/conflict mitigation, Natural Resource Management (NRM) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). Activities include capacity building of local structures (NRM committees, DRR committees and peace committees), natural resource mapping and support in peace building/conflict mitigation.

2.0. BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

Protracted conflict in South Sudan has led to a perpetual state of humanitarian crisis. Although there has been a decline in large-scale hostilities over the past years, localized violence has persisted in many pockets of the country. The humanitarian situation in South Sudan remains dire. More than two-thirds of the South Sudanese population and some 300,000 refugees and asylum seekers in South Sudan need some form of humanitarian assistance and protection in 2021, as the country continues to experience cumulative effects of years of conflict, a surge in sub-national violence, unprecedented flooding and hyperinflation, further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. The lack of durable peace and limited investment in basic services impedes many people’s ability to move towards sustainable development. The impacts of climate change have been high in South Sudan where up to 95% of the population (about 11 million) depend on climate- sensitive sectors which include forestry resources, agriculture and fisheries.

NPA is implementing various projects to address the immediate needs, improve the lives and livelihoods of affected populations and promote peace. In all it’s interventions and in line with commitment 5 (Communities and people affected by crisis have access to safe and responsive mechanisms to handle complaints) of the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS), NPA seeks to gather feedback from the people we serve and the partners we work with.

Therefore, NPA is seeking a consultant to develop a comprehensive and context-specific Complaints and Response Mechanism (CRM) system, policy and implementation guidelines. The CRM system should be informed by the CHS while taking cognizant of the unique context of NPA’s operational areas in South Sudan.

3.0. CONSULTANCY OBJECTIVES

  1. To identify gaps in NPA’s current CRM practices.
  2. To develop a needs-based and context-specific CRM policy including a framework, tools and Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) that NPA will use in operationalizing the CRM system.
  3. To develop a formalized system and process of soliciting, receiving, processing and responding to the feedback and complaints received from the people we serve and the partners we work with.
  4. To support NPA in rolling out the CRM policy by training NPA staff in Juba and across all the field offices on the CRM policy, system and the relevant implementation tools.
  5. To provide concrete recommendations to NPA on the staffing and financial requirements needed to ensure that the CRM remains fully operational after the roll-out phase.

4.0. DURATION OF ASSIGNMENT

Special Notice

The appointment/assignment is until 31 December 2022, with the possibility of extension, subject to availability of funds and mandate extension. The selected candidate is expected to start as soon as possible.

A current staff member who holds a fixed-term, permanent or continuing appointment may apply for temporary positions no more than one level above his or her current grade. However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments. In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further “stressed that the Secretary-General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013…” Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified.

Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat.

Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as “retirement.” Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service.

While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post. An external candidate selected for this position is bound by the prevailing condition of the staff selection system under ST/AI/2010/3, as amended, and ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1. A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions.

The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15.

Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law. Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to whether they have committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.

For information on special post allowance, please refer to ST/AI/1999/17. For more details on the administration of temporary appointments please refer to ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1.

The Staff Regulations, Staff Rules and administrative issuances governing staff appointments can be viewed at: http://www.un.org/hr_handbook/English Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply.

Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation. Submitting an application or selection for the current temporary job opening does not delay or increase the mandatory age of separation.

United Nations Considerations

According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation” means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.

Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment.

The paramount consideration in the appointment, transfer, or promotion of staff shall be the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. By accepting an offer of appointment, United Nations staff members are subject to the authority of the Secretary-General and assignment by him or her to any activities or offices of the United Nations in accordance with staff regulation 1.2 (c). In this context, all internationally recruited staff members shall be required to move periodically to discharge new functions within or across duty stations under conditions established by the Secretary-General.

Applicants are urged to follow carefully all instructions available in the online recruitment platform, inspira. For more detailed guidance, applicants may refer to the Manual for the Applicant, which can be accessed by clicking on “Manuals” hyper-link on the upper right side of the inspira account-holder homepage.

Activities include capacity building of local structures (NRM committees, DRR committees and peace committees), natural resource mapping and support in peace building/conflict mitigation.

2.0. BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

Protracted conflict in South Sudan has led to a perpetual state of humanitarian crisis. Although there has been a decline in large-scale hostilities over the past years, localized violence has persisted in many pockets of the country. The humanitarian situation in South Sudan remains dire. More than two-thirds of the South Sudanese population and some 300,000 refugees and asylum seekers in South Sudan need some form of humanitarian assistance and protection in 2021, as the country continues to experience cumulative effects of years of conflict, a surge in sub-national violence, unprecedented flooding and hyperinflation, further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. The lack of durable peace and limited investment in basic services impedes many people’s ability to move towards sustainable development. The impacts of climate change have been high in South Sudan where up to 95% of the population (about 11 million) depend on climate- sensitive sectors which include forestry resources, agriculture and fisheries.

NPA is implementing various projects to address the immediate needs, improve the lives and livelihoods of affected populations and promote peace. In all it’s interventions and in line with commitment 5 (Communities and people affected by crisis have access to safe and responsive mechanisms to handle complaints) of the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS), NPA seeks to gather feedback from the people we serve and the partners we work with. However, this process is not documented and formalized and hence not uniformly applied across all the project locations. Therefore, NPA is seeking a consultant to develop a comprehensive and context-specific Complaints and Response Mechanism (CRM) system, policy and implementation guidelines. The CRM system should be informed by the CHS while taking cognizant of the unique context of NPA’s operational areas in South Sudan.

  4. To support NPA in rolling out the CRM policy by training NPA staff in Juba and across all the field offices on the CRM policy, system and the relevant implementation tools.
  5. To provide concrete recommendations to NPA on the staffing and financial requirements needed to ensure that the CRM remains fully operational after the roll-out phase.
