Program Director in CAR , Central African Republic

For the Cordaid Country office in Central African Republic, Bangui, Cordaid is looking for a Program Director

Introduction

Cordaid has 30 years of experience in the Central African Republic, working with civil society partners and the Catholic Church on both emergency relief and long term development programs. In 2008 Cordaid decided to become operational itself in CAR, and opened offices in the provinces (Nana Mamberé) as well as in Bangui to carry out health programs through the performance based financing approach. The health program gradually expanded and was fledged out by activities in the field of Education, Security and Justice, Relief, Resilience and Food Security. The office was temporarily suspended in the fall of 2015 due to a periodically worsening security situation. In northern parts of the country relief operations are still necessary, whereas in other parts a shift can be made to longer term development. Donors (EU, Dutch Government, DFID, World Bank, UN agencies) now make larger funds available to enable flexible operations. Cordaid is known as a reputable partner and stands to attract significant donor funding.

The program, therefore, is expanding with investments in 2015 to the tune of € 5 mio expected to grow towards € 8 mio in 2018, staffing now at 6 expats (1 vacancy) and 100+ national staff over 4 offices, including the central office in Bangui.

The overall aim of the 3FM project is by the end of 2018, 5,000 youth are more resilient to the consequences of conflict and able to shape their personal and economic development.In addition, NLRC supports the CAR RC with strengthening its capacities to effectively provide services to the most vulnerable communities and assists the partner in the coordination within the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and other stakeholders. The RP and Youth projects appear to run well, with tribute to NLRC international staff that operate in close tandem with their NS counterparts. A new project funded by The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs has just started and focusing on livelihoods and basic needs for the youth with an overall objective that by 2020, 5000 vulnerable youth are economically and socially integrated through economic empowerment, first aid trainings promoting peace due to trainings in 7 principles, Conflict management, social cohesion and SRH (including SGBV awareness). The Country Representative is also the end responsible for this project.

Netherlands Red Cross Response Preparedness Programme

In 2011 the 31st International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent was held. During this Conference the Netherlands government and NLRC agreed to support a selection of National Societies to provide more effective emergency response.[1] This resulted in the so-called ‘RP’ programme, a first full-fledged response preparedness programme implemented from 2012 till 2016 in 5 countries and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). NLRC intended to renew this commitment to strengthening disaster response preparedness and started preparations for a proposal in 2014, which was formally accepted for funding by July 2016. The programme (May 1st 2016 – April 30th 2020) fills a critical gap between current community based resilience and risk reduction programmes and international disaster response by focusing on strengthening national response capacity and linking it to regional and global capacity. It aims at enabling a better prepared response mechanism of the RCRC Movement partners and surrounding stakeholders in case disasters strike and therefore complements community-based resilience and DRR activities. For the Netherlands Red Cross the response preparedness programme contributes to an important part of the organization’s strategic focus on disaster management[2] as laid down in the paper ‘Towards 2020’. In the second phase of the Response Preparedness Programme (RP2), NLRC will contribute to improved Disaster Response Preparedness in four disaster and conflict prone countries, working closely with the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in those countries-namely Central African Republic, Lebanon (including Palestinian Red Crescent branch in Lebanon), Mali and Zambia-, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Secretariat, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC) and the 510 data team of NLRC. RP2 covers core activities that lie at the heart of disaster preparedness of National Societies, but also aims to address capacities that strengthen and facilitate these. This means that RP2 not only focuses on the capacity of the involved National Societies (NS), but also on its specific position within the country’s broader disaster response preparedness mechanism. In addition RP2 will be contributing to global Red Cross and Red Crescent tools and guidelines on response preparedness through the IFRC Secretariat and the RCCC.
