Résumé du poste

Contexte

Iraq has suffered nearly 39 years of conflict and unrest starting with the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s which lasted for 8 years and resulted in around a million people being killed as well as dealing a significant blow to the Iraqi economy. This was closely followed by the annexing of Kuwait and subsequent First Gulf War in 90s which saw heavy causalities and destruction of the Iraqi infrastructure. The 2003 invasion of Iraq by the US led coalition saw even more upheaval and conflict for this population. After a short period of relative stability between 2009 and 2012, the rise of Islamic State group (ISg) in 2014 and its seizure of, at one point, an estimated 40% of Iraq including Fallujah, Tikrit and Mosul, Iraq saw mass population displacement and the exposure of the people of Iraq to multiple and cumulative acts of violence. The military operation to retake areas under IS control has been officially completed end of 2017, however some pockets of ISg fighters remain active up to this day.

Iraq as a whole has been facing one of the most critical humanitarian crisis of the moment. Starting from 2014, the conflict engendered mass displacements, and left up to this day more than 8.7 million people requiring humanitarian assistance. In the end of 2018, more than 4.1 million people returned to their area of origin, and over 1.8 million are still displaced. In addition, 225,000 Syrian refugees who have been displaced since 2013 are still living in Iraq.

Responsabilités

The Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) Coordinator is responsible for guiding the overall MEAL strategy and implementation or related activities within projects while providing timely and relevant information to stakeholders. The MEAL coordinator will support PUI’s operational and technical staff in ensuring the accountability of PUI’s programme in Iraq by developing the appropriate MEAL strategies and protocols for each project/specific technical sector. He/she will provide technical MEAL guidance and leadership at all level of the Country Program, by leading efforts to document progress, effectiveness and impact of PUI´s intervention in the country. The MEAL Coordinator will ensure the use of technically appropriate needs assessment, monitoring and evaluation methods, contributing therefore to improve the quality and effectiveness of PUI humanitarian action.

Principales activités

Under the supervision of the Deputy Head of Mission for Programmes (DHoMP), and in cooperation with technical coordinators and MEAL staff in the operational bases and at coordination level, the MEAL Coordinator will:

  • Lead the design and the roll-out of a sound and adapted-to-context MEAL strategy and operational guidance integrating cross-cutting issues (gender, protection, accountability, do-no-harm, community participation, disability, etc.)
  • Provides a methodological support to all program teams on technical questions linked to MEAL and cross-cutting issues such as: design of M&E plan, quantitative and qualitative data collection, measure of indicators, feedback and complaint mechanism, “do no harm” analysis, terms of references of internal and external evaluations etc.
  • Looks over the quality and relevance of internal monitoring and evaluation activities, recommendations and analysis produced by his/her department (studies, maps…);
  • Makes sure his/her department is cross-cutting and well integrated with all departments (functional links) as well as coherent with all coordinators and managers;
  • Supports training of MEAL and program teams within his/her fields of expertise;
  • Contributes to institutional knowledge building and improvement of MEAL methods and techniques;

Note: The responsibility for some assessments, monitoring and evaluation of program activities will remain the primary responsibility of the program teams. MEAL Coordinator will however ensure the proper tools are developed and are made available to the field teams.
