Job Title: Regional Programme Support - Afghanistan and Yemen

Code: SR-00-968

Duty station: 60% deployed to the assigned missions, 40% home based with planned presence in the HQ or HQ-based (Rome)

Starting date: 01/06/2019

Contract duration: 7 months (with possibility of extension)

Reporting to: Regional Director Afghanistan and Yemen

Supervision of: //

Dependents: //



General context of the project

Yemen has been declared the worst humanitarian crisis, and it could become the world's worst famine in 100 years. This is a man-made disaster fueled by all sides in the conflict. 24 million Yemenis (nearly 80% of the population) are in need of some kind of humanitarian assistance. Yemen is also suffering from a cholera outbreak that has affected over 1.2 million people since April 2017.

The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan is steadily deteriorating: conflict is a major contributor to displacements and food insecurity, both of which are further compounded by chronic drought. Afghanistan remains one of the few countries where polio is still endemic. The protracted nature of the crisis has also given rise to long-term needs that challenge traditional humanitarian response and lead to renewed efforts to promote coordination between humanitarian and development actors.

In both contexts widespread attacks to humanitarian principles is the norm: health centers are bombed, aid workers are targeted by fighters, and civilians are starved into surrender. Denial and obstruction of humanitarian assistance, as well as increased hostility towards and attacks on humanitarian workers, also have serious consequences for the civilian population.

INTERSOS is an Italian non-profit humanitarian aid organization that works to bring assistance to people in danger, victims of natural disasters and armed conflicts.

INTERSOS has been operational in Afghanistan and Yemen since 2002 and 2008 respectively, and continues to respond to the needs of the conflict-affected populations through a multi-sectoral response mostly focused on protection, health, nutrition and WASH.

In Yemen INTERSOS remains one of the most important (and only Italian) NGO, having expanded its operations both geographically (working equally in North and South) and in term of sectors since the beginning of the conflict. Bureaucratic impediments and operational challenges remain very high and require continuous efforts from the country team to implement the numerous programmes in time and with quality.

In Afghanistan INTERSOS is consolidating its operations and plans for an expansion of programmes to respond to the high uncovered needs in the Southern region, which remain a challenging area due to access and security constraints.

Job Title: Regional Programme Support - Afghanistan and Yemen

Code: SR-00-968

Duty station: 60% deployed to the assigned missions, 40% home based with planned presence in the HQ or HQ-based (Rome)

Starting date: 01/06/2019

Contract duration: 7 months (with possibility of extension)

Reporting to: Regional Director Afghanistan and Yemen

Supervision of: //

Dependents: //



General context of the project

Yemen has been declared the worst humanitarian crisis, and it could become the world's worst famine in 100 years. This is a man-made disaster fueled by all sides in the conflict. 24 million Yemenis (nearly 80% of the population) are in need of some kind of humanitarian assistance. Yemen is also suffering from a cholera outbreak that has affected over 1.2 million people since April 2017.

The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan is steadily deteriorating: conflict is a major contributor to displacements and food insecurity, both of which are further compounded by chronic drought. Afghanistan remains one of the few countries where polio is still endemic. The protracted nature of the crisis has also given rise to long-term needs that challenge traditional humanitarian response and lead to renewed efforts to promote coordination between humanitarian and development actors.

In both contexts widespread attacks to humanitarian principles is the norm: health centers are bombed, aid workers are targeted by fighters, and civilians are starved into surrender. Denial and obstruction of humanitarian assistance, as well as increased hostility towards and attacks on humanitarian workers, also have serious consequences for the civilian population.

INTERSOS is an Italian non-profit humanitarian aid organization that works to bring assistance to people in danger, victims of natural disasters and armed conflicts.

INTERSOS has been operational in Afghanistan and Yemen since 2002 and 2008 respectively, and continues to respond to the needs of the conflict-affected populations through a multi-sectoral response mostly focused on protection, health, nutrition and WASH.

In Yemen INTERSOS remains one of the most important (and only Italian) NGO, having expanded its operations both geographically (working equally in North and South) and in term of sectors since the beginning of the conflict. Bureaucratic impediments and operational challenges remain very high and require continuous efforts from the country team to implement the numerous programmes in time and with quality.

In Afghanistan INTERSOS is consolidating its operations and plans for an expansion of programmes to respond to the high uncovered needs in the Southern region, which remain a challenging area due to access and security constraints.
