Job Title: Consultant / Protection and Counter Trafficking Mainstreaming

CFCV No.: CFCV2020/073
Location: Maiduguri, Borno
Organizational Unit: MHPSS
IOM Classification: Consultant
Type of Appointment: Consultancy, 6 months
Estimated Start Date: As soon as possible

Objective

  • The focus of this assignment will be in-depth protection and Counter Trafficking mainstreaming indicators of the activities and all the projects of MHPSS / Protection Unit in North-East Nigeria. To be in a position to accomplish this task, the consultant will need to do a thorough review of the project background and its aims, protection and counter-trafficking activities to date.
  • The Consultant would be expected to study the project activities and results from a protection and counter-trafficking perspective; conduct an analysis of the project components and the fields of intervention; and identify opportunities and constraints for mainstreaming protection and counter-trafficking both at the activity design and report delivery stages of programme delivery.
  • Providing recommendations on protection / counter trafficking-specific information gathering and collection of disaggregated data for use in implementation of activities.

Context

  • Humanitarian actors have a shared responsibility for mainstreaming protection across the Joint Response Plan (JRP).
  • Sectors and partners are responsible for ensuring activities within the scope of their sectorial response plans integrate protection principles and standards. In line with the 2020 JRP and the objective of ensuring age, gender, and diversity approaches, and in order to facilitate the process of protection mainstreaming across the response, the Protection Sector will institute Protection Mainstreaming Focal Points.
  • Through joint engagement between Protection Working Group (PWG), The PWG Task Team (PWG TT), and the Protection Mainstreaming Focal Points (PM FPs), efforts will be scaled up to integrate protection principles into the delivery of assistance and services so that Sectors and service providers can ensure response activities target the most vulnerable, enhance safety, dignity, and promote and protect the rights of the beneficiaries in line with the “DO NO HARM” principle and without inadvertently contributing to, or perpetuating discrimination, abuse, violence, neglect and exploitation.
  • With the above objective in mind, Protection Sector aims to provide guidance, trainings, and technical advice on protection mainstreaming to Sector staff and Sectorial partners through Protection Mainstreaming Focal Points who will be guided by the PWG Task Team in actively supporting and engaging with existing Sectors.
  • During displacement majority of the crisis-affected people have experienced extreme violence, and loss of family members, social connections, and property; they have accumulated and protracted stress, and are suffering from a deterioration in living conditions, a disruption of pre-existing protective mechanisms and a lack of access to essential services, such as health and education. Displaced populations face grave protection risks and violations such as exploitation and abuse, arbitrary and extended detentions, family separation, restrictions on freedom of movement and insecurity. Vulnerabilities are seen exacerbated by pre-existing and emergency induced mental health and psychosocial problems faced by the affected population. This is particularly true in terms of the most vulnerable sub-groups of the population, including the elderly and chronically sick, persons with physical and mental disabilities, female- and child-headed households, unaccompanied and-or separated children, adolescent boys and girls, pregnant and / or lactating women and people returning from captivity.
  • Also, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that humanitarian crises, such as armed conflicts, natural disasters, and protracted unrest, can lead to an increase in Trafficking in Persons (TiP). This is especially true in the context of largescale internal and / or cross-border movements. TiP is a grave violation of human rights and a serious crime in international law and Nigerian national legislation. Through deception, coercion, physical or psychological threats, or the abuse of their position of vulnerability, victims of human trafficking may be exploited in various forms including, but not limited to, forced labour, begging, organ removal, sexual exploitation, or forced marriage.
