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). NRC in South Sudan also provides lifesaving assistance to vulnerable people through mobile emergency teams.NRC seeks to carry out a protection assessment in selected areas on Unity, Jonglei and Central Equatoria states to is to provide essential information about protection risks, capacities, and vulnerabilities specific to conflict affected populations (internally displaced persons, returnees, and host populations).

The consultant will be engaged by the NRC South Sudan Country Office to conduct a protection assessment in 5 counties namely Akobo and Bor South (Jonglei state), Kajo Keji (Central Equatorua state); Koch and Leer (Unity State) that will inform NRC protection programming in South Sudan. In particular, the objectives of the assessment are 1) To identify and establish the different protection risks and issues affecting women, men, boys, and girls (WMBGs) and elder of different age groups including elderly persons living with and without a disability. 2) To establish existing strategies and resources used by WMBGs to identify, mitigate, and respond to identified protection risks and issues. 3) To establish the different protection and other essential services available, access by people at heightened risk and main access barriers to available services

Country: South Sudan
Organization: IMPACT Initiatives
Closing date: 13 Jun 2022

BACKGROUND ON IMPACT AND REACH

REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts. REACH facilitates information management for aid actors through three complementary services: (a) need and situation assessments facilitated by REACH teams; (b) situation analysis using satellite imagery; (c) provision of related database and (web)-mapping facilities and expertise.

IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

We are currently looking for a Senior Data Officer to support our REACH team in South Sudan.

Department: REACH**

Position: Senior Data Officer

Contract duration: 6 months

Location: Juba, South Sudan

Starting Date: ASAP

COUNTRY PROFILE

IMPACT, through REACH, has been implementing programming in South Sudan since 2012. Responding to the Sudan Border Crisis, REACH initially engaged through coordinated information management support – in the form of refugee camp mapping and service provision analyses, thematic assessments, and multi-sectoral needs assessments – in Maban County, Upper Nile State and Pariang County, Unity State. IMPACT was engaged by DFID to provide a series of impact evaluations of their BRACE programming across Greater Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile States in 2013; a programme with run for two years, included 5 total assessments, and reached a total of more than 20,000 households. Immediately following the conflict of December 2013, REACH expanded its programming to include the IDP response, participating in Initial Rapid Needs.

Assessments of conflict affected areas, providing mapping and monthly service provision analyses for major IDP sites around the country, and running large-scale IDP return intentions assessments.

2018 saw the expansions of both IMPACT and REACH programming to 10 of 10 states, spanning the refugee, IDP and development responses, and covering diverse activities such as cross-border port monitoring, assessments of hard to reach areas, flood mapping and vulnerability analysis, market monitoring and supply chain analysis, analysis of tensions and conflicts over access to natural resources, and third party monitoring of humanitarian and development programming. In 2019, REACH expanded its role within the technical space, increasing involvement in Integrated Phase Classification (IPC), Needs Analysis Working Group, UN technical agencies, and academics. In response, REACH has also expanded into multiple new research cycle streams beyond humanitarian needs monitoring, including sector specific, population movement, and AAP research.

Broadly, REACH South Sudan implements assessments across three core units:

  • Monitoring of the humanitarian situation in South Sudan, through monthly assessments covering over 2,000 settlements in South Sudan, conducting an annual representative Multi Sector Needs Assessment to provide a snapshot of needs, and ad hoc rapid assessments in times of sudden escalations in conflict or natural disasters.
  • Monitoring population movement trends in South Sudan, including tracking and analyzing large-scale displacement, returns and seasonal movements, through port and road monitoring, ad-hoc assessments, and a population movement baseline; assessing the perceptions of affected populations of the humanitarian response; engaging with the protection cluster in identifying and filling major information gaps; and mainstreaming a context sensitive approach within REACH South Sudan.
  • Providing direct technical support to humanitarian clusters through active engagement with coordination bodies, dedicated assessments and information products, and strategic engagement to promote innovative methods towards understanding sector-related needs in South Sudan.

The Senior Data Officer would support across all three units and streams of work. More information on REACH’s work in South Sudan can be found here: https://www.reach-initiative.org/where-we-work/south-sudan/.
