INTERSOS is an independent humanitarian organization that assists the victims of natural disasters, armed conflicts and exclusion. Its activities are based on the principles of solidarity, justice, human dignity, equality of rights and opportunities, respect for diversity and coexistence, paying special attention to the most vulnerable people.

Terms of reference

Job Title: Project Manager

Code: SR-41-1862

Duty station: Pibor, Jonglei State and Juba

Starting date: 19/04/2021

Contract duration: 5 months

Reporting to: Program Coordinator

Supervision of: 10 local staff

Dependents: Non-family Duty Station /non-accompanied

General context of the project

In South Sudan, multiple years of conflict and severe economic crisis resulted in recurrent population displacements. According to ACAPS[1], the South Sudan crisis severity is very high, with very relevant constraints in terms of assets. Based on the 2021 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO)[2], 8.3 million people are estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance in 2021; at the same time, 1.6 million IDPs and 2.2 million refugees lack basic services and experience extreme poverty. These issues, compounded by the impact of natural disasters like 2020 unprecedented floods led to widespread protection concerns and food insecurity, leaving some States such as Jonglei highly vulnerable. Pibor County, within Jonglei State, is one of the most severely affected areas: according to the 2021 HNO, Based on the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC)[3] issued in September 2020, Pibor County:

  • from December 2020 to March 2021 has been suffering from an Emergency situation (IPC 4). At the same time: throughout its population, 11,000 people have been facing a Catastrophe situation (IPC 5), given significant underlying vulnerabilities which built up over time due to the protracted crisis and recurrent shocks. Humanitarian actors, such as WFP and some of its implementing partners, have been partially meeting the above mentioned needs by putting in-kind food distribution in place.

  • from March to July 2021 will suffer from an Emergency situation (IPC 4). If what foreseen in terms of humanitarian assistance was fully delivered, no one should suffer from IPC 5. At the same time: Pibor County, which would normally see a seasonal improvement with the return of livestock to the homesteads, is expected to further deteriorate as very few animals will return because of the considerable earlier losses, the anticipated continuation of conflict, the reduced availability of wild animals and fish, the economic crisis, high food prices, and the reduction of commercial and humanitarian supplies because of the onset of the rains and the likely effects of COVID-19 measures. Therefore: Pibor County will likely see a further deterioration in food insecurity.

INTERSOS has been active in Pibor County over the last years through the implementation of protection and education in emergency projects and by managing the humanitarian hub. Based on its significant understanding of the impact of the current crisis on the local context, and by turning its 2021 country strategy into account, INTERSOS is prepositioning itself to contribute to the humanitarian response through a food assistance intervention.

ABOUT THE MISSION

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL operates in South Sudan since 2006.

SI works at the response to urgent needs in water supply, hygiene and sanitation, food security and shelter as well as the prevention and response to outbreaks.

Its long lasting presence has contributed to build a wealth of experience in WASH and FSL assessments, implementation and accountability to beneficiaries.

In December 2013, Massive displacements have exacerbated humanitarian needs that were already high.

After years of crisis, inhabitants of Fashoda county have lost most of their sources of income, putting them in a precarious and vulnerable situation. The poor nutritional and food security situation has contributed to increased mortality rates, in large part due to the limited levels of WASH services and exposure to high risks of water borne diseases, and the situation is expected to worsen in the coming months. However, despite urgent humanitarian needs, there is very limited humanitarian assistance being provided in the area.

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL became a key WASH actor for IDPs in the Protection of Civilian (PoC) IDP Camp of Malakal and implemented construction and maintenance of sanitation facilities, waste management and hygiene promotion activities.

SI has also implemented food security activities in South Sudan; piloting large-scale unconditional cash transfers amongst IDPs and host communities in Upper Nile State, as well as seeds distribution in Malakal.

In response to the displacement from Wau Shilluk, SI started a program in Aburoc in 2017 where it was one of the very first actors on the ground to implement WaSH activities, and Solidarités International is the WaSH focal point for the cluster on the site.

General objective:

General context of the project

As part of the 2021 Humanitarian Implementation Plan (HIP) for Upper Nile Basin, Solidarités International (SI), INTERSOS and Interchurch Medical Assistance World Health (IMA) formed a Consortium to contribute to reducing the impact of protection risks and foster resilience of the most vulnerable populations of Jonglei and Upper Nile states, in South Sudan. Based on multiple joint assessments conducted in December 2020 and January 2021, the Consortium will provide a multi-sectoral life-saving assistance, while supporting livelihood recovery and strengthening communities’ resilience towards the resurgence of potential shocks and stresses through a combination of static and mobile response. This Action will be implemented in four static areas from two States: Aburoc (Upper Nile State), Nyirol, Canal/Pigi and Aboko counties (Jonglei State). The static response will provide Gender-Based Violence (GBV), Child Protection (CP), Livelihoods, Health, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services to the target populations of the Consortium operational areas.

Effective coordination of WASH partners through the WASH Cluster architecture will also be promoted in order to prepare for and respond to humanitarian emergency situations effectively and guide partners in delivering appropriate WASH services at sub-national and national levels. Should new emerging shocks occur in any of the proposed operational areas, the Consortium will activate the Crisis Modifier to trigger an early action and provide an immediate response tailored to the shock-affected populations, while advocating for a longer-term response with Clusters and other stakeholders.

Job Title: Protection Project Manager

Code: SR-41-1785

Duty station: Juba with visit to Jonglei State (Pibor, Pochalla, Akobo, Ayod, Lankien)

Starting date: 01/04/2021

Contract duration: 9 months

Reporting to: HoM

Supervision of: field teams and PM assistant

Dependents: Non-family Duty Station /non-accompanied

General context of the project

Since gaining independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011, South Sudan has confronted a number of humanitarian challenges, including population movements and returnee integration. In the two and a half years since people of South Sudanese origin began returning from Sudan on a large scale directly before and after independence, vulnerable communities in South Sudan have struggled to accommodate more than 700,000 new arrivals, many of whom are rebuilding lives and livelihoods with few resources from which to draw. Inter-communal violence and general insecurity also persist in several parts of the country, particularly in Jonglei State, where fighting has led to significant displacement and deteriorating humanitarian conditions.

Lingering effects from more than 20 years of north-south conflict, poverty, and continued tension with Sudan, which led to a cessation of oil exports in 2012 that damaged South Sudan’s economy, compound the humanitarian situation. Confronting deteriorating economic conditions, populations are less able to cope with shocks and increasingly rely on the humanitarian community for basic food and non-food assistance. However, insecurity, bureaucratic harassment of relief organizations, logistical challenges, and Government of the Republic of South Sudan-imposed restrictions constrain humanitarian activities across the country, hindering the delivery of critical assistance to populations in need. The Country has then seen a prolonged period of instability resulting from a failed then stalled peace process.

This position is aimed at ensuring the prompt and effective delivery of the assigned Projects in Jonglei State (Akobo and Lankien) and other additional areas of expansion in case it is required. By the end of the assignment, the post holder is expected to have:
