MONITORING AND EVALUATION EXPERT AT UNDP-CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Apply for the position of Monitoring and Evaluation at UNDP

Deadline: 30 June, 2021

Background

West Africa, and especially the Sahel region, currently faces many interconnected challenges related to poverty, climate change, rapid population growth, as well as severe threats to the national and regional stability posed by human rights violations, terrorism and transnational organized crime. Political instability in the region and the humanitarian crises and human rights situation have made populations more vulnerable and pushed people to migrate in order to protect themselves and meet their basic needs. In parallel, limited opportunities for accessible regular channels for migration and porous borders as well as limited capacities, legal frameworks and resources to combat smuggling of migrants (SOM) have enabled organized criminal groups to develop networks to smuggle migrants through West and North Africa to Europe, often exposing migrants to severe abuses, human rights violations, and risks to their life.

In order to respond to this situation, UNODC and OHCHR developed a joint project “PROMIS – Protection of Migrants: Justice, Human Rights and Migrant Smuggling” to strengthen the capacities of West African states to develop a human rights-based response to smuggling of migrants and to effectively respond to human rights violations related to irregular migration”, funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The geographical coverage of the project includes Burkina Faso, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal. The project started in 2016 (Phase I) and was extended in 2017 (Phase II) and 2020 (Phase III).

Against this background, UNODC/OHCHR is/are recruiting a consultant to develop a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system, with tools to measure the impact of activities of the PROMIS project since its inception and beyond; and analyze data collected since the inception of the project.
