The
UNICEF East and Southern African region has been subject to an increasing number of emergencies in recent years, including climate change-related emergencies, armed conflicts, public health emergencies, etc.


The increased number of emergencies and their complexity (mostly multi-countries crises) increase the responsibility of the HARP (Humanitarian Action Resilience and Peacebuilding) section to ensure that all the 21 country offices in the region follow a thorough preparedness process and respond efficiently and timely to emergency onsets.


Under the general supervision of the Deputy Regional Director, and in close coordination with the Emergency Operations Division, NYHQ, the incumbent will initiate and provide high-level policy and programme planning support in matters related to humanitarian action resilience and peacebuilding in the ESAR region.

The post focuses on support to ESAR Country Offices and ESARO in addressing the underlying causes associated with the high vulnerability of populations recurrently or chronically affected by crises and emergencies whilst ensuring close links and a clear continuum between prevention, preparedness, and response activities before, during and after emergencies.

The post will support the development of risk analyses; guide contingency planning and the development of preparedness strategies; and support emergency responses through technical advice in planning, advocacy, resource mobilization, and coordination of surge capacity.

The incumbent will provide support to ESAR Country Offices and ESARO in risk-informed planning to promote resilience linking humanitarian action with regular development programming.
