Organization: Norwegian Refugee Council
Country: Democratic Republic of the Congo
Closing date: 30 Sep 2015
Internal displacement in North Kivu (and South Kivu) continues to put DR Congo in the top five displacement crises worldwide. Over the past twenty years, displacement has been a recurrent feature of life in the Kivus – particularly North Kivu, with current estimates placing over 1.7m (OCHA August 2013) people living in displacement in the two Kivu provinces. North Kivu in particular has seen regular ‘waves’ of massive displacement – starting in 1996 with the Congo wars, and with marked peaks in 2000, 2003, 2008-9 and again in 2012-13.
In urban areas such as Goma and surrounding areas, this is a particular challenge. Although current displacement figures only reflect cumulative ‘fresh’ displacement since 2009 – with some level of return incorporated – entire suburbs of Goma have developed considerably in size due to inflows of displaced. At the same time, gaps in urban planning and a lack of managed urban development mean repeated waves of displaced persons into Goma have created huge pressures on existing public infrastructure and services with earlier informal IDP sites effectively becoming part and parcel of shanty towns surrounding the city. The historical lack of engagement in urban programming means both a failure to support steps towards durable solutions – including local integration – for those living in protracted displacement, as well as an inability to respond to new displacement into urban areas.
NRC seeks a full time Program Manager to support the NRC-DR Congo Urban Pilot program in Goma. This position is expected to:
1) Manage and report on the urban pilot programme in two sub districts in Goma city focusing on meeting immediate needs, preparedness, governance and advocacy
2) Develop proposals for funding for the next stage of the programme and support this with active donor liaison
The urban pilot programme was developed following a profiling and needs assessment in late 2013, which identified multiple sectorial needs. The response for 2015 includes unconditional cash transfers, business and entrepreneurial skills training and legal advice and support related to civil documentation, as well as governance and advocacy. We aim to address rights abuses and lack of access to services, as well as prepare for new influxes of displaced.
