The UNRC is looking to hire a contractor to lead and further the collaboration with the World Bank around FCV, prevention and peacebuilding. By exploring the areas of synergy between the two organizations and identifying entry points through the UNCT Prevention Platform, the Common Country Analysis (CCA) and UNDP Crisis Risk Dashboard (CRD), the contractor’s main task is to contribute to the UN’s technical capacity on multidimensional risks of the compounding crises of COVID-19, locust, drought, floods and violence in all its forms. This will better position the organization to successfully establish mutually beneficial collaboration with the World Bank.

The selected candidate will contribute to:

  • Support the development of a Data Strategy on Prevention for the UNCT;
  • Identify and establish requirements for data analytics that would support the process;
  • Identify partnerships and opportunities for collaboration which could assist in implementing the Data Prevention Strategy;
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of the UN’s and the WB’s objectives, priorities and programmatic engagements related to fragility, peacebuilding and prevention in Kenya;
  • Analyze the emerging risks in Kenya, identify gaps in knowledge and analysis and propose UN actions which could contribute to prevention and peacebuilding efforts of both the UN and the WB;
  • Conduct interviews and virtual roundtable discussions to optimize the use of risk analysis tools within the UNCT;
  • Support collaboration between the organizations by engaging various stakeholders on both the UN and World Bank side, holding meetings and consultations with a view to operationalizing the approved concept note for the collaboration;
  • Consistently monitor any relevant FCV-related developments in Kenya and along its international borders to provide solid analysis for both organizations;
  • Compile FCV data for regions of interest, using available institutions and data sources, and provide a proposal for the indicators, data sources and recommendations on how the organizations can carry out data collection and analysis;
  • Identify overlapped priorities, needs and blind spots for the UN and WB in areas of FCV and prevention, including cross-border issues;
  • Contribute to specific proposals to optimize the usage of UN data, UNDP crisis dashboard, databases, platforms and sources to enhance qualitative and quantitative analysis and policy notes which could be of relevance to both organizations (and beyond) on the areas of prevention and peacebuilding;
  • Contribute to ways in which the UN can upgrade its technical capacity in particular areas of relevance to both the UN and the World Bank efforts for prevention, FCV and peacebuilding;
  • Support joint priorities and outcomes against which the UN and the World Bank can leverage financing and comparative advantage for joint impact across the humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) spectrum;
  • Contribute to assessments and analysis of ongoing analytical processes of relevance;
  • Provide recommendations on the Crisis Risk Dashboard (CRD) and support the ongoing development of the platform and its objectives;
  • Conduct research to identify other institutions, think tanks, and organizations that could be involved and potentially support the partnership;
  • Suggest solutions to donor funding sustainability to create viable mechanisms for the UN to sustainably produce relevant data and information to serve its ongoing needs.
