  • Kenya: CONSULTATIONS WITH CHILDREN AFFECTED BY ARMED CONFLICT


    Organization: Save the Children
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 02 Nov 2017

    CONSULTATIONS WITH CHILDREN AFFECTED BY ARMED CONFLICT

    Terms of Reference

    1. Introduction

    Save the Children (SC) is the world's leading independent organization for children. As part of the organisation's contribution towards ensuring every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation, Save the Children has been working with armed forces in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) since 1998 and with the African Union (AU) for the last ten years to promote the rights of children in conflict, post-conflict and protracted political emergency situations. With support from SIDA, Save the Children has worked towards strengthening Child Protection in African Union Peace Support Operations since 2013.

    The engagement has borne results that include:

    • The development and adoption of a harmonized and standardized curriculum and standards on child protection and child rights;
    • The development of a training management system (AMANI) providing a platform for learning and sharing information with key stakeholders in Peace Support Operations (PSO) through knowledge learning events and symposiums.

    Save the Children in collaboration with partners continues to augment efforts that protect girls and boys in conflict settings. These interventions aim at strengthening the capacity of the Peace Support Operations actors in Africa to deliver their protection mandate and ensure girls and boys affected by armed conflicts and protracted political disputes enjoy their rights.

    Our work focuses on four key objectives:

    1 To enhance the commitment and capacity to prevent and respond to violence against girls and boys within the AU Peace and Security Department (AU PSD), East Africa Standby Force, ECOWAS Standby Force, and Member States. 2 To institute and monitor a functional accountability framework on child protection within the AU Peace and Security Department, East Africa Standby Force, ECOWAS Standby Force and troop contributing countries. 3 To increase knowledge, evidence and collective understanding on child rights and child protection issues within Peace Support Operations. 4 To improve participation among girls and boys affected by armed conflict to contribute to decisions and processes of the AU, Regional Mechanisms/Bodies and Member States.

    To achieve this, Save the Children collaborates with stakeholders within the AU, Regional Bodies and Regional Mechanisms in East and West Africa, and National Armed Forces.

    1. Context

    The African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACRWC) entered into force in 1999. This was after AU Member States took an unambiguous stance on the applicability of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) to children in Africa on various socio-economic, cultural and developmental diversities.

    Like the UNCRC, the ACRWC defines the full spectrum of children's civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights and the obligations of duty bearers to uphold those rights; the principal duty bearer being the State. The Charter makes it possible for girls and boys to assert their rights through domestic judicial or administrative proceedings. The Charter's articles are applicable in all contexts including situations of conflict. Article 22 of the Charter is specific to conflicts in stating that no child should participate in armed conflict. The Charter establishes ACERWC as the body responsible for monitoring its implementation and ensuring the protection of the rights contained in it. On the definition of a child, the UNCRC defines a child as every human being below the age of 18 years 'unless under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier'[1], where the law referred to in the CRC includes international treaties and domestic legislations specific to children. The ACRWC defines a child more concisely as 'every human being below the age of 18 years'.[2] This has a significant difference when discussing the age of conscription or engagement in armed forces.

    Despite this framework, girls and boys caught in conflict on the continent continue to be subject to rights violations including violence that is both incidental and targeted. As highlighted in the Study on the Impact of Armed Conflict on Children in Africa commissioned by the ACERWC[3], girls and boys living in conflict contexts are more likely to be separated from their families, sexually assaulted, subject to early marriage, maimed, killed, recruited by force, or die early as a result of disease or malnutrition. At the same time, they are less likely to attend school. Girls and boys not only have to live with the physical and psychological scars from their experience but often with social alienation particularly those who have been associated with armed groups or those who have survived sexual violence. Conflict often has different effects on girls and boys. For example, boys are often more vulnerable to recruitment as combatants by armed groups whilst girls are often more vulnerable to sexual violence.

    Despite widespread condemnation and mechanisms to hold perpetrators accountable, such grave violations of children's rights continue. In the annex to the UN Secretary General's report 2014 on Children and Armed Conflict[4] listing parties responsible for grave violations against children, armed groups on the continent are overrepresented. 15 of the 28 groups listed are located in Africa, 5 of which are national armed forces.

    There is growing intolerance globally and on the continent against acts of violence committed against children in conflict situations and in particular against violence committed by peacekeepers. The UN Secretary General is vociferous in his condemnation and he is exploring ways to end impunity through, for example, naming and shaming countries that fail to take action[5]. His dismissal of the Head of the UN Mission in the Central African Republic following repeated allegations of violations by peacekeepers sends a clear signal. In 2015, the UN Security Council demonstrated its continued engagement on the issue by adopting Resolution 2225[6]. The resolution requests the Secretary General to include in the annexes to his report on children and armed conflict those parties to armed conflict that engage in contravention of applicable international law, in patterns of abduction of children in situations of armed conflict. In line with the priorities of this Swedish funded project, it also calls for mandatory pre-deployment training of peacekeepers on child protection and sexual violence. This will need high-level political commitment that is driven by evidence from grassroots action, which this project would endeavour to undertake.

    The AU is taking the issue seriously with the appointment of a Special Representative to the AU Chair of the Commission for Women, Children and Armed Conflict to drive the agenda within the AU. The AU Peace and Security Council, PSC, has to date held five open sessions focusing on children associated with armed conflicts. It is cooperating with the ACERWC to make Member States more accountable for their implementation of the African Children's Charter.

    African troops already form the bulk of the peace support troops currently engaged in the UN missions on the African continent and in one AU mandated mission (AMISOM in Somalia) and two AU authorised missions (the fight against the Lord's Resistance Army in central Africa and Boko Haram in Nigeria and surrounding countries). By the weight of their numbers and their engagements, they clearly have a significant effect on the lives of girls and boys in the contexts in which they operate. As peacekeepers, they are mandated to protect children from violence in conformity with Security Council resolutions on children in armed conflict, country specific resolutions and the respective mandates. Ensuring that they have the necessary capacity and resources to implement this mandate effectively has a large potential impact on protecting children from violence in the continent's ongoing and future conflicts.

    1. Background to the child participation component

    It is encouraging that children and armed conflict are on the African political agenda and various mechanisms are in place to prevent and respond to violence against children affected by armed conflict. However, the reality is that the children whom they are designed to protect rarely inform these. Consequently, decisions, policies and processes that do not involve children in their design can have gaps. In worst cases, these policies can actually work against the best interests of the child, further exposing girls and boys to violations especially where they do not consider the intricate differences in dimensions of impact on girls and boys. Simply put, decisions, policies and process affecting children are more likely to be effective in their intent if children are involved in their design, implementation and monitoring.

    Currently when children are engaged in processes it is often tokenistic without clear mechanisms for them to influence decisions, policy and practice. Such engagement is often not in line with best practice in ensuring that children are properly informed, that they are willing participants, and that the experience of different groups of children differentiated by for example sex, ability, age etc. are considered. Paternalistic attitudes and lack of knowledge on how to engage children effectively contribute to this.

    Save the Children's experience as a leader on child participation shows that girls and boys bring alternative perspectives to issues affecting them that have not been considered by adults. Their participation leads to better decision making, policies and practice that more effectively address their experience. This work aims at improving decision making policy and practice by strengthening the ability of peace support actors to engage children and strengthening the capacity of children to effectively engage. The work will focus on four main activities:

    1 capacity building for CSOs in Mali and South Sudan on conducting children consultations; 2 conducting children consultations in collaboration with local CSOs in Mali and South Sudan; 3 sensitisation sessions with the ACERWC and PSC on best practices in child participation; and 4 conducting research with children on key topics affecting their wellbeing and livelihood, whose findings will be presented and discussed at the AU, ACERWC and other regional bodies.

    1. Objectives of the consultancy

    The purpose of the consultancy is to carry out and develop communication and advocacy materials from consultations with children which will be conducted in Mali and South Sudan starting in November 2017.

    Country: Isle of Man (The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland)
    Closing date: 29 Oct 2017

    Invitation to Tender

    BRACED Project Final Evaluation - Niger

    Background

    In January 2015 CARE International secured DFID funding from the "Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED)" programme for a period of three years. This BRACED project, "Project de la Résilience face aux Chocs Environnementaux et Sociaux au Niger" (PRESENCES) worked in the Tillabéry region in seven departments and 12 rural communes, to reach an estimated target population of over 400,000 people. The GBP 3.9 million project is led by CARE International UK and is implemented by CARE Niger, TREE AID and national civil society organisations AREN and MOREEBEN.

    As the PRESENCES project draws to a close, we wish to carry out a final evaluation to identify the key achievements and the lessons that can be learned from the programme.

    Key Outputs

    Applicants are invited to submit tenders to conduct a final evaluation and final evaluation report (50 pages). The evaluation will require analysis of quantitative data collected by the project, as well as the collection of qualitative data, in order to assess and demonstrate the extent to which the project has been able to build the resilience of women and men in the targeted communities. In particular:

    • To provide evidence-based information on performance of the project against the intervention logic and existing project and programme indicators.
    • To assess the project's efficiency, effectiveness, and validity of design/relevance of the project.
    • To assess how the project ensured inclusion of vulnerable and marginalised communities and engaged with affected population and communities.
    • To assess the sustainability of the outcomes of the project, beyond the project lifetime.
    • To document lessons learned and provide evidence-based recommendations for similar future interventions.

    The successful evaluator, in discussion with CARE, will also be invited to produce 1-2 learning briefs that could be developed drawing from the evaluation analysis. These will be produced as stand-alone documents tailored for the wider audience of the development sector and donors. They should highlight innovative learning from the project that could contribute to the wider understanding of increasing resilience among populations who are highly vulnerable to climate risks.

    Key Requirements

    Applicants must be able to demonstrate:

    • Understanding of the requirements and of evaluating the impact of resilience programmes.
    • A clear and costed approach to delivering this evaluation, including composition of the evaluation team.
    • Expertise and experience in the field of developing tools for and carrying out final evaluations.
    • Experience in the area of resilience or livelihoods.
    • Experience and understanding of gender issues relating to resilience.
    • Capacity to work effectively in Niger and have a strong understanding and experience of the Nigerien development/humanitarian context.
    • Fluency in French and English is essential.

    Tenders must be received by on Sunday 29 October 2017.

    Tenders should include:

    A proposal document (max. 7 pages) detailing:

    • Your understanding of the requirements and of evaluating the impact of resilience programmes.
    • Your proposed approach in delivering this evaluation, including composition of your team.

  • Chad: Expert Technique en programme de formation déminage


    Organization: Handicap International
    Country: Chad
    Closing date: 29 Oct 2017

    CONTEXTE :

    Après son indépendance, le Tchad a connu de nombreux épisodes d’instabilité et de violence, émergeant principalement de tensions internes. Près de 35 ans après les premiers conflits, le territoire tchadien est encore aujourd’hui contaminé par de nombreuses mines et autres restes explosifs de guerre (REG), situation aggravée par l’invasion libyenne de la bande d’Aouzou au nord du Tchad entre 1984 et 1987. Environ 90% des zones minées connues se situent dans la région du BET (Borkou – Ennedi – Tibesti), territoire couvrant environ le tiers du pays.

    Handicap International (HI), partenaire historique du Tchad dans l’Action Contre les Mines, a mené en 1999 l’enquête d’impact suivant la ratification de la Convention d’Ottawa par le Tchad et a participé à un projet de renforcement des capacités du CND en 2009.

    En janvier 2014, le CND avait identifié 337 zones dangereuses ouvertes (dont 271 dans le BET), sur plus de 106 km2 de terre (plus de 105 km2 dans le BET), menaçant directement au quotidien et lors de leur déplacement, plus de 3 700 000 personnes au Tchad (292 827 au BET).

    Entre octobre 2014 et décembre 2016, grâce à un appui financier de l’Union Européenne, Handicap International a mis en œuvre, en partenariat avec MAG le volet 1 du Projet d’Appui au Secteur du Déminage au Tchad (PADEMIN). De façon spécifique HI a mis en œuvre des activités de :

    · renforcement des capacités du CND dans la gestion de la qualité des opérations et la remise à disposition formelle des terres. L’activité a permis :

    o la formation et l’accompagnement de 15 personnels du CND ;

    o la création d’outils de planification, de suivi, de supervision et de contrôle des opérations ;

    o la mise à jour des normes nationales de gestion de la qualité et de remise à disposition des terres ;

    o le contrôle qualité et la remise à disposition de zones déminées/dépolluées dont la restitution aux bénéficiaires était jugée prioritaire.

    · enquêtes non techniques et d’éducation au risque des mines et REG dans les régions du Moyen Chari et du Chari Baguirmi (dans le sud du pays). 18 zones ont été confirmées dangereuses dont 4 polluées par des mines.

    · enquêtes non techniques et d’éducation au risque des mines et REG dans la région du Borkou. 66 zones nouvelles ont été confirmées dangereuses dont 14 polluées par des mines.

    En 2017, HI forme un consortium avec MAG, FSD (Fondation Suisse de Déminage) et SECADEV (Secours Catholique) afin de développer un projet d’appui au déminage, au développement et à la protection sociale des personnes vulnérables dans le Nord du pays (BET ; Borkou, Ennedi, Tibesti) et la région du Lac Tchad (PRODECO). Ce projet financé par l’Union Européenne, dont la mise en oeuvre débutera à partir de septembre 2017, vise à contribuer à la stabilité régionale et à une meilleure gestion des migrations, en s’attaquant aux causes profondes d’instabilité, de déplacements forcés de populations et de migration irrégulière, en accroissant les opportunités économiques, l’égalité des chances, la sécurité et le développement. La responsabilité de coordination administrative et financière du consortium est confiée à HI.

    Cette nouvelle action répond aux priorités du Plan d'Action Régional en faveur du Sahel pour la période 2015-2020, adopté par le Conseil de l'Union européenne, et plus particulièrement aux objectifs de soutien à un développement politique et socioéconomique durable et au renforcement de la sécurité dans la région.

  • Libya: Technical Advisor


    Organization: Handicap International
    Country: Libya, Tunisia
    Closing date: 29 Oct 2017

    1. Context:

    Most major Libyan cities and large expanses of rural land across the country are contaminated with mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) from World War Two and later wars in the 1970’s and 80’s, and intermittent armed conflict since 2011 when the regime of Muammar Gadhafi was toppled following a popular uprising.

    Whilst progress was made in clearing contamination from the most critical, populated areas in the years following Gadhafi’s defeat, in 2014 nationwide conflict erupted again centered in Tripoli, the Nafusa Mountains and other coastal cities in the West, Benghazi and Derna in the East and Sabha in the South. The wide scale contamination is a daily threat to the security of displaced and returning populations; with some cities experiencing non-stop conflict for the last three years, whilst others have seen violent, armed outbursts adding to the layers of explosive contamination.

    The liberation of cities such as Benghazi, Sirte and Sabratha from non-state armed groups, and the recent signing of multiple peace agreements have led to an increasing number of spontaneous returns of internally displaced persons (IDPs), eager to inspect and re-inhabit their homes, only to find high levels of ERW and booby traps in residential areas and affecting transit routes; subsequently hindering significant population movements, the delivery of humanitarian assistance and the resumption of socio-economic activity in these retaken areas.

    Whilst nationwide casualties from these explosive hazards go largely unreported, in Benghazi alone more than five casualties per week have been recorded since the city’s liberation was declared in July. At the same time, since 2014 there has been limited capacity for deploying clearance teams with only a small number of actors working in the sector, despite these high and urgent needs in all areas of recent conflict.

    Handicap International (HI) has been operational continuously in Libya since 2011, and up until the end of 2014 delivered a large-scale Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) programme from bases in Tripoli, Misrata and Sirte. During that period, HI teams protected countless civilians from the risk of death and injury due to explosive hazards through the clearance of over 30 square kilometres of land, including schools, agricultural land, beaches and residential areas; removing and destroying over 112,000 mines and ERW in the process. More than 1,000 people were trained to deliver mine/ERW/small arms and light weapons (SALW) Risk Education including teachers, scouts and imams from cities in east and western Libya. In addition, HI Risk Education teams reached more than 110,000 at-risk civilians, including children and IDPs with messaging on keeping safe until all explosive hazards could be removed and destroyed.

    Due to the relocation of international staff in 2014 to Tunisia, HI’s clearance activities were suspended and in keeping with its Mine Action strategy in Libya, a Victim Assistance intervention was developed; implemented today through a team of twenty-four national staff in Tripoli and Misrata. Six outreach teams provide specialized services to vulnerable IDPs and non-displaced with disabilities and injuries, including the provision of physical rehabilitation, psychosocial support, provision and fitting of appropriate and enabling assistive devices, and referrals to other external services when needed. HI is also in the process of applying for registration to operate in Benghazi and is planning to open a new base in the last quarter of 2017.

    HI currently has three offices for Libya:

    • Tunis coordination office

    • Tripoli field coordination and operations office

    HI’s planned activities in the mine action sector include:
