In ongoing humanitarian situations, robust performance monitoring is a core accountability and is essential to support effective response. To ensure effective monitoring of the programme actions is in place, the UNICEF ECA Regional Office seeks support from an experienced professional in planning, monitoring, and evaluation who would provide expertise in humanitarian performance monitoring and support the ECARO Programme Planning and Data team.
Within the framework of regional Humanitarian Action for Children, the primary purpose of the assignment is to ensure support to the ECA Regional Office in setting up and implementing a mechanism for information gathering and processing, management of humanitarian information management tools, procedures and systems, and facilitating effective HPM reporting. The incumbent will support the Regional Office in maintaining a functional HPM system that meets the monitoring and reporting requirements, working closely with the Refugee Response Teams, the RO Emergency section, the Programme sections, and the Programme Planning and Data section.
The position, strategically embedded within the Programme Planning and Data team, is pivotal in fostering the synergy between development and humanitarian planning and monitoring. This arrangement contributes to integrating these two critical areas, bolsters data preparedness, and fosters collaboration across various sections in the different stages of the humanitarian life cycle.
