    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Eritrea
    Closing date: 11 Dec 2017

    UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.

    The Government of the State of Eritrea (GoSE) and the United Nations (UN) launched the new five-year Strategic Partnership Cooperation Framework (SPCF) on 1 December 2016, covering 2017-2021. Humanitarian response priorities (also known as Basic Services Response Priorities) are integrated into this framework for ease of synergy and transition into medium to long-term development interventions, and amount to approximately 23 percent of the total indicative resources for the SPCF 2017-2021.

    The 2018 Basic Services Response Priorities (BSRP) document outlines Ânutrition, health, water, sanitation and hygiene, education, child protection as UNICEF’s areas of focus. By integrating humanitarian responses into the development programme, UNICEF aims to support approximately 500,000 vulnerable children including children with disabilities and in pastoralist communities, women-headed households,[1] pregnant and lactating mothers, and people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.

    Eritrea experienced El Niño during the 2015-16 and 2017 agricultural seasons as was the case in the entire Horn of Africa region (Economist Intelligence Unit - EIU, 2016, 2017). Although domestic cereals availability for the 2016/17 period is difficult to determine because of lack of crop harvest assessment, food insecurity generally worsens during the usual mid-July to mid-November lean season. Consequently, tackling household food insecurity and malnutrition among children and mothers of child-bearing age remain priorities for 2018. Outbreaks of Acute Watery Diarrhoea, one of the three leading causes of morbidity and mortality among children under 5 years of age, and low immunization coverage are common in remote parts of the country. In some of these areas, pregnant women lack easy access to health services and children lack equitable access to basic education. Additionally, conflict has left parts of the country contaminated with landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW).United Nations’ presence and continued advocacy for the survival and development of children in Eritrea is vital for supporting the Government to meet immediate needs while focusing on the country’s development agenda, especially in the absence of international non-governmental organizations. Apart from long-standing key donors, the United Nations regularly mobilizes funds from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), particularly from its window for underfunded emergencies. The insignificant amount of CERF funding received over the years (US$ 39 million since 2006) underlines the state of underfunding for operations in Eritrea. For 2018, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) has prioritized joint efforts with the Government to improve programme implementation and monitoring, and resource mobilization. Thus, UNICEF Eritrea requires a dedicated Humanitarian Affairs Specialist to manage and coordinate UNICEF-supported humanitarian preparedness and response.

    GOAL AND SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

    Under the guidance of the Deputy Representative and in close collaboration with Section Chiefs, the PM&E Specialist, the Communication Specialist, the Communication for Development Officer, the Chief of Operations, and Representative, the overall goal of this position is to support UNICEF Eritrea’s humanitarian preparedness and response.

    Closing date: 17 Dec 2017

    Duration of Contract: 01-20 January, 2018 (15 working days)

    Section: Basic Education, Child Participation and Participation (BECPP)

    Location of Assignment: Asmara, Eritrea

    Reports to: Chief of BECPP, UNICEF ECO

    Broad accountability to the Director General, Department of Administration and Finance and chairperson of the EWG

    Eritrea is a relatively a new nation born after 30 years of armed struggle. It gained its de facto and de Jure independence from Ethiopia on May 1991 and 1993 respectively. Since its independence, building the education sector has been a priority for the Eritrean government with commitments to free education for all Eritreans across all levels including secondary and tertiary education. The 2010 National Education Policy also underlines the Ministry of Education commitment on reaching the unreached and the goal for creating a literate society that can provide good quality education to all children and at all levels. It calls for the provision of free and compulsory basic education; the use of the mother tongue teaching at the elementary level; and the expansion of secondary and tertiary education opportunities as the most essential components of the education system. Anchored on the principles of social justice, the government of the state of Eritrea policy documents embraces the equity dimension in efforts to expand access to general education.

    In line with the sustained efforts to universalize access to basic education and meet the commitments of Education for All initiative, sizeable progress was made in expanding general accessibility to basic education including early childhood education services across the country. Consequently, the number of primary schools over the years 2000/01-2015/16 expanded from 491 to 958 and the GER and NER stretched from 85.4% and 58.8% in 2000/01 to 106.7% and 82.1% in 2015/16 respectively. In lower secondary school the GER and NER expanded from 62.8% and 16.7% in 2000/01 to 75.4% and 40.9% in 2015/16 respectively. The number of secondary schools increased from 43 in 2000/2001 to 104 in 2015/2016.

    Despite efforts to meet national and international commitments and the declaration of free education at all levels, Eritrea like countries in the region, faces the dual challenge of increasing access to educational opportunities and improving the quality of education at all levels in the school system. Recently the out-of-school country study report (2016) revealed that yet over 220,000 children of 5 to 13 years of age remain out-of-school. The analysis also disclosed a bulk of these out-of-school children are from pre-primary (73.0%)and middle school (40.9%) levels of education. Consequently, the critical issues and the overriding concern of the sector relates to ensuring equity of access to schooling throughout the country. Wider disparities in the general level of participation among regions/Zobas, gender gaps, low levels of participation of children with disabilities, children from nomadic communities and those from geographically hard to reach rural areas typifies the education sector.Â

    Besides, improving the nature and quality of education especially at basic education level has been a public concern. Studies carried out to monitor the learning achievements (MLA) of children to generate comprehensive information, support policy suggestions and reform in 2001, 2008 and 2015 indicated a declining trend in learning achievements. Findings from the third-round MLA survey (2015) flagged a falling trend in performances at Grade 5 where only 25.4% of students attained the minimum mastery level (MML) compared to 49.9% in 2008. The inadequate coverage of teachers, heightened teacher attrition compounded by numbers of untrained and unmotivated teachers, impacted adversely the quality of education. Limited involvement of parents and communities and poor monitoring and evaluation practices also influenced the provision of quality services in the sector.

    Since 2003 Eritrean Ministry of Education has been guided by an Education Sector Development Plan (ESDP- 2003-2011) and Education Sector Plan (ESP -2013-2017). These sector strategic plans have provided a framework for policy directions, strategies and targeted goals including programs and action plans for ECE, Primary, Middle, Secondary, Adult literacy and TVET education sub-sectors. Currently, learning the lessons from and building upon these strategic plans, the Ministry of Education has embarked an extensive education sector analysis (ESA) to provide the basis for a new Education Sector Plan (2018-2022) which is expected to provide an improved framework for future efforts in the ECE, primary, middle, secondary, TVET and non-formal education sub-sectors.

    Once the ESP 2018-2022 is developed, cognizant of the need to undertake a critical review of the ESP, the Ministry of Education intends to engage expert services/ consultancy services (both National and International) to undertake ESP appraisal. The main purpose of the appraisal will be to review the ESP preparation process including the level of participation and inclusion of a range of stakeholders, as well as the partners who will be in charge of implementing the plan at the local level. More importantly, the appraisal will also include quality review of the plan on issues related to equity, gender, evidence base, relevance of the policies and programs, adequacy and credibility of the financial framework and provide recommendations for improvement among others. Overall, the appraisal of the ESP is to evaluate and ensure that it meets the standards defined in the GPE/IIEP/UNESCO Guidelines for Education Sector Plan Preparation.

    Objective of the Consultancy

    The principal objective of the consultancy is to conduct an appraisal of the Eritrean Education Sector Plan (2018-2022) to confirm its credibility. The expert service will provide a fair review of the ESP strengths and areas of in need of improvement before the plan will be endorsed by partners to confirm their commitment to support the implementation of the ESP. Specifically, the consultancy will provide technical assurance on the ESP process as country-led, participatory and transparent, soundness and relevance of the plan, methodically dealt with issues of equity and efficiency and learning, coherence, feasibility, implementability and monitorability. The consultancy will also conduct financial appraisal of the ESP which would include evidence that a positive policy environment exists for productive investments in the education sector and that capacity constants are addressed to facilitate policy implementation. The appraisal will give attention to areas of government leadership, knowledge and data, institutional and human capacities, and dialogue among education stakeholders.

    Scope of the work and Methodology

    The appraisal will be conducted by an international consultant who will be working remotely but in close contact with a local consultant.Â

    The consultant will review the ESA and appraise the ESP 2018-2022 in line with the IIEP/GPE plan preparation and appraisal guidelines, find the gaps if any, and address those:

    Assess the quality of the ESP 2018-2022 preparation process, including analysis of the role of the Government and the role of the EWG in the process.

    Organization: UN Children's Fund
    Country: Eritrea
    Closing date: 20 Mar 2018

    Title: Humanitarian Affairs Specialist, P3

    Contract type: Temporary Appointment

    Reports to: Deputy Representative

    Duration: Twelve months (renewable)

    Start date: May 1st, 2018

    Location:Asmara, Eritrea

    BACKGROUND

    The Government of the State of Eritrea (GoSE) and the United Nations (UN) launched the new five-year Strategic Partnership Cooperation Framework (SPCF) on 1 December 2016, covering 2017-2021. Humanitarian response priorities (also known as Basic Services Response Priorities) are integrated into this framework for ease of synergy and transition into medium to long-term development interventions, and amount to approximately 23 percent of the total indicative resources for the SPCF 2017-2021.

    The 2018 Basic Services Response Priorities (BSRP) document outlines Ânutrition, health, water, sanitation and hygiene, education, child protection as UNICEF's areas of focus. By integrating humanitarian responses into the development programme, UNICEF aims to support approximately 500,000 vulnerable children including children with disabilities and in pastoralist communities, women-headed households,[1] pregnant and lactating mothers, and people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.

    Eritrea experienced El Nino during the 2015-16 and 2017 agricultural seasons as was the case in the entire Horn of Africa region (Economist Intelligence Unit - EIU, 2016, 2017). Although domestic cereals availability for the 2016/17 period is difficult to determine because of lack of crop harvest assessment, food insecurity generally worsens during the usual mid-July to mid-November lean season. Consequently, tackling household food insecurity and malnutrition among children and mothers of child-bearing age remain priorities for 2018. Outbreaks of Acute Watery Diarrhoea, one of the three leading causes of morbidity and mortality among children under 5 years of age, and low immunization coverage are common in remote parts of the country. In some of these areas, pregnant women lack easy access to health services and children lack equitable access to basic education. Additionally, conflict has left parts of the country contaminated with landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW).

    United Nations presence and continued advocacy for the survival and development of children in Eritrea is vital for supporting the Government to meet immediate needs while focusing on the country's development agenda, especially in the absence of international non-governmental organizations. Apart from long-standing key donors, the United Nations regularly mobilizes funds from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), particularly from its window for underfunded emergencies. The insignificant amount of CERF funding received over the years (US$ 39 million since 2006) underlines the state of underfunding for operations in Eritrea. For 2018, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) has prioritized joint efforts with the Government to improve programme implementation and monitoring, and resource mobilization. Thus, UNICEF Eritrea requires a dedicated Humanitarian Affairs Specialist to manage and coordinate UNICEF-supported humanitarian preparedness and response.

    GOAL AND SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

    Under the guidance of the Deputy Representative and in close collaboration with Section Chiefs, the PM&E Specialist, the Communication Specialist, the Communication for Development Officer, the Chief of Operations, and Representative, the overall goal of this position is to support UNICEF Eritrea's humanitarian preparedness and response.

  • Lead technical coordination and monitoring of the humanitarian action.
  • Support office-wide participation in regular risk analysis and preparedness exercises, including the Emergency Preparedness Platform (EPP).
