    Organization: Department for International Development
    Country: South Sudan
    Closing date: 28 May 2018

    Summary of the role

    DFID South Sudan are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic South Sudanese Policy Officer to join the Humanitarian and Livelihoods Team. The post holder should have experience and knowledge in the fields of food security, livelihoods, resilience and/or economic security programming. But equally importantly should be intellectual curiosity, flexibility and a keenness to learn.

    This job offers an exciting opportunity to make a significant contribution to delivering better impact and results from the humanitarian and resilience effort in South Sudan. The successful candidate will play a key role in informing key policy objectives and in designing and implementing DFID South Sudan’s multi-year humanitarian and resilience programming. The UK is one of the largest bilateral donors South Sudan and works closely with other key donors including the US, EU and Germany.

    The context:

    The humanitarian outlook in South Sudan is incredibly challenging. 5.3 million people are severely food insecure, and 1 million people are on the edge of famine. Four years of conflict has lead to significant displacement with 4 million people forced from their homes due to violence (1.9 million internally). The conflict has been divesting for people’s livelihoods and has severely eroded people’s normal copying capacity to deal with shocks and stresses. Ultimately only peace will resolve the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan, but until that happens it will be important to support the resilience of people and communities as far as possible.

    Under the Humanitarian and Resilience in South Sudan (HARISS) programme, the UK through a range of partners has been supporting a range of essential life-saving services (food assistance, health, nutrition and WASH) as well as livelihood opportunities. These include diversified food production systems, stimulating market recovery through cash interventions, enabling vulnerable people to access markets, as well as working with communities through cash for work schemes to strengthen infrastructure that supports livelihoods and climate change adaptation.

    DFID South Sudan’s 2016 to 2020 business plan sets out plans to build peace and stability, to reduce extreme poverty and to increase resilience. Our programmes help meet immediate life-saving needs and build South Sudanese people’s resilience to crises through strengthening their livelihoods. We also help support their basic health and education needs, and have cross-cutting work on conflict-sensitivity and governance analysis. The business plan explains how our country programme will adapt to a range of possible scenarios, including the current crisis and ongoing uncertainty.

    This role sits within a friendly and high performing DFID South Sudan Humanitarian and Livelihoods Team (HLT), which is composed of three (two humanitarian and one livelihoods) advisors, as well as programme management team of nine, plus a Team Leader and a Deputy.

    Key Duties and Responsibilities

    The roles’ overarching responsibility is to provide high quality, timely and relevant technical advice to DFID South Sudan. The priorities will be:

    1. Supporting the team with contextual (political, social and economic) analysis to inform humanitarian and resilience programming, policy development and advocacy strategies. Review existing research and analysis (including IPC) and advise on the design of appropriate research and analysis. Ensuring everything DFID South Sudan does, and especially new programming, is rooted in context.

    2. Supporting partner management and technical direction. Work with advisers and programme management teams within HLT to ensure effective programme delivery of resilience focus programming.

    3. Strengthening relationships with national and local stakeholders. Building relationships with key national and local stakeholders who play a role in shaping humanitarian and resilience programming and policy. This includes faith-based organisations, CSOs, NNGOs, Red Cross, academic institutions, Government and other non-government actors.

    Specific duties will include (but will not be limited to):

    • Contributing strategic, timely and high quality technical inputs and analysis for policy and strategy work within DFID South Sudan, ensuring everything we do is informed by the context in South Sudan;

    • Supporting technical oversight of the programmes, including implementation, ensuring VFM and monitoring and evaluation of the programme;

    • Contributing to the management of key relationships with key local actors such as NNGOs, faith-based organisations, government, academics and think tanks;

    • Supporting the office in the production of business cases, programme reviews, briefing, information notes, submissions, and other products as needed;

    • Conducting field visits to monitoring partner projects and strengthen sub-national contextual understanding and analysis.

    Successful candidates will have:

    Organization: InterAction
    Country: United States of America
    Closing date: 27 Sep 2018

    About InterAction:

    InterAction is the largest alliance of international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the U.S., with nearly 190 members working in every developing country. Members are large and small, faith-based and secular, with a focus on the world’s most poor and vulnerable populations. The U.S. public, foundations and governments support the work of our members who collectively invest and manage over $18 billion a year. InterAction’s own funds come from dues and generous grants from others, such as foundations, corporations and governments. Using its collective voice, InterAction seeks to shape important policy decisions as wide range of foreign assistance, relief, development, environmental and other issues that advance human dignity.

    About The Position

    Position: Analyst, USG Regulatory Risk and NGO Response

    Position Type: 3 Months (October-December 2018)

    Location: Washington, DC

    Travel: Domestic (within Washington, DC)

    Reporting to: VP, HPP

    Primary Relationships

    Reporting to the VP, Humanitarian Policy and Practice, the analyst will work alongside numerous colleagues including the VP for Global Development Policy and Learning, Director for Humanitarian Practice, the Legislative Manager for Humanitarian Affairs, the Manager for Democracy, Rights, and Governance Initiative, as well as with member NGOs concerned with the increasing regulatory environment. Externally, this position liaises with InterAction members, the Charity & Security Network and other similar groups, as well as with USG offices that oversee regulations, including but not limited to USAID, the Departments of State and Treasury, Offices of the Inspector General, and the US Congress. Depending on progress, the analyst may also dialogue with other non-USG donors to further comparative points within the research.

    Purpose of project

    Donors are under increasing domestic pressure to justify and safeguard the use of development and humanitarian funds, with the potential risk of programs and budgets being reduced if adequate assurances cannot be provided against regulatory parameters. Both donors and aid organizations face considerable scrutiny over fraud, safeguarding and counter-terrorism issues, and have low levels of tolerance for any such systems failures. Risk, and the way it is experienced and shared differently by government donors and their NGO partners is growing into a barrier towards finding common solution to the increasing pressures. These pressures include but are not limited to OIG regulations, bank de-risking, partner or beneficiary vetting, and counter-terrorism legislation.

    Within the humanitarian sphere, the result of additional conditionalities include: increased time needed to obtain funding to respond; decreasing adaptability in highly complex and volatile operational environments, as well as in more risk-averse programming and priority setting by agencies; tightly earmarked funds with narrow programming windows; decreased utilization or remote management and/or partnership arrangements; private funds being used to cover costs of extensive compliance mechanisms; and the limited availability of flexible and multi-year funding to ensure program continuity.

    For the broader development sphere, the increasing regulatory environment threatens to decrease civil society’s ability to operate independently. Furthermore, some regulatory measures of growing concern to the NGOs were not designed for them or their operations, yet outdated definitions and stricter enforcement could ensnare NGOs. These include bank de-risking measures, and new legislation connected to the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) of 1938. Efforts to remove exemptions or retain unclear language may further impact non-profits.

    The analyst will explore what policies, procedures and guidelines are in place, and for what reasons, mapping out clearly the various measures by different USG offices to regulate NGOs’ operations and finances. Additionally, the research will need to include the impact of current external threats to NGOs, such as the recent case brought against NPA by a private citizen, using USG laws.

    Members have taken on different responses to the current shifting environment, with some standing up compliance units, and other tracking as best they can how to protect their organization. There is a need to educate ourselves on what is being asked of us, and who is doing what, where, why and how. Additionally, we need a common language, based on evidence, of the cost of the regulatory environment, including clarity on in what other areas of its foreign assistance portfolio the USG is willing to accept risks and why.

    This position is intended to serve as a temporary surge, building on the existing capacities of InterAction staff and members to aid us in defining the current landscape, and building out recommended next steps for InterAction and its members.

    Desired outcome and key activities

    InterAction members gain a broader understanding of regulatory measures in place, and their impact, and define a collective strategy for mitigation efforts. To achieve this outcome, the consultant will work with InterAction members and other stakeholders to:

    1. Conduct a comprehensive mapping, and accompanying analysis to include trends and impacts of the USG regulatory environment as its impacts on international NGOs and their operations, to include the expertise and concerns of NGOs and government officials, forecasting of future legislation or donor guidance, and identifying upcoming opportunities for briefings and educational meetings with relevant stakeholders.
    2. Develop a best practices / options guidance note on how NGOs are responding to the regulatory environment, attentive to the diversity of operations and size amongst NGOs. Supporting materials may include interviews, review of NGO procedures, and media reports.
    3. Coordinate and facilitate educational briefings and meetings with NGOs on the results of the mapping exercise, leading into the development of proposed next steps.
    4. Draft an “after action” review to document successes, challenges, and lessons learned from this process.

    Qualifications

    • 7-10 years professional experience in development/humanitarian operations, including an understanding of USG compliance environment;
    • Strong understanding of INGO sector and the USG donor environment;
    • Proven analytical skills, with demonstrated ability to identify consequences and potential implications for NGOs and their operations of regulatory mechanisms and actions;
    • Excellent written, organizational and verbal communications skills, including presentation experience;
    • Strong interpersonal skills and experience managing and representing the interests of diverse constituencies;
    • Demonstrable commitment to a collaborative approach;
    • Master’s degree in a relevant field or equivalent work experience;
