Ethiopia: Senior Social Protection Specialist
Closing date: 2015-07-16Application : Apply for the job
Organization: World Bank
Closing date: 16 Jul 2015
The World Bank, a member of the World Bank Group, is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. Our mission is to fight poverty with passion and professionalism for lasting results and to help people help themselves and their environment by providing resources, sharing knowledge, building capacity and forging partnerships in the public and private sectors. We are not a bank in the common sense; we are made up of two unique development institutions owned by 188 member countries: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). Each institution plays a different but collaborative role in advancing the vision of inclusive and sustainable globalization. The IBRD aims to reduce poverty in middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries, while IDA focuses on the world's poorest countries. Their work is complemented by that of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
In 2005, the Government of Ethiopia together with the support of Development Partners, designed and commenced implementation of a Food Security Program, which included a Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) as well as complementary programming to strengthen local livelihoods. PSNP is now entering its fourth phase. The goal of PSNP-4 is Resilience to shocks and livelihoods enhanced and food security and nutrition improved for rural households vulnerable to food insecurity. It has five major outputs:
Output 1: Prioritized instruments and tools in place to support an effective system for Social Protection and Disaster Risk Management.
Output 2: Appropriate, timely and accessible transfers received by male and female clients.
Output 3: Sustainable community assets built up and access to social services enhanced.
Output 4: Clients livelihood opportunities facilitated through three pathways: crop and livestock, off-farm income generation, and employment.
Output 5: Effective management and operational processes in place to manage the program.
Since the commencement of the PSNP in 2005, approximately eleven donors have harmonized around the program, and have aligned their investments behind the Government owned program. Donors have recommitted to continue these efforts, in line with global commitments around Aid and Development Effectiveness. The Donors meet every 2 weeks (as a Donor Working Group - DWG) to discuss on-going issues in the PSNP and to ensure harmonization of positions. The agenda for this meeting frequently covers strategic, policy and operational details. The Donor Working Group is led by a Donor Chair, which rotates every six months.
The donor working group and donor chair are supported by a Donor Coordination Team (DCT). At the outset of the PSNP program in 2006, donors created the DCT to ensure that PSNP support would be as coordinated and harmonized as possible. The DCT has evolved significantly since its inception and is now seen as a high-performing unit important to the continued success of the donor harmonization that underpins the PSNP.
Duties and Accountabilities:
The objectives of the post are:
i. To support the Donor Coordinator in providing support to the Donor Working Group and enabling continued donor harmonization to the Government.
ii. To support the Donor Coordinator with the provision of implementation support to the GOE as well as oversight and quality control of all outputs contracted by the DCT on behalf of the DWG, as well as all products produced by the DCT.
iii. To serve as a focal person on Output One: prioritized instruments and tools in place to support effective systems for social protection and disaster risk management, and to backstop the Donor Coordinator in the oversight of Output Two: appropriate, timely, and accessible transfers received by male and female clients.
iv. To provide technical advice on all aspects of the PSNP to the DWG, with a particular focus on output one.
Scope of Work:
The scope of work that the Senior Specialist will be required to undertake, with a particular focus on systems development, includes:

To coordinate the engagement of the DWG with the Technical Committees and taskforces of the PSNP and provide technical advice to the DWG on all issues affecting the effectiveness of the programs;

Work with the DCT and DWG to facilitate unified responses to program challenges and opportunities;
