We are looking for: an Emergency Response mechanism Head of Department
In Afghanistan, based in Kabul
As a politically fragmented, natural disaster-prone nation, Afghanistan has long faced levels of chronic insecurity, internal displacement, and widespread poverty that has subjected its populations to ongoing hardships and recurring humanitarian crises. Communities remain food insecure for a range of reasons, from the cumulative impacts of multiple droughts, erratic climate shocks and seasonal flooding, a lack of infrastructure and limited access to markets, problems that are especially acute among vulnerable populations in remote regions. As a result, Afghanistan ranks poorly on basic human development indicators, with millions dependent on external humanitarian assistance for their daily survival and an estimated four million refugees living abroad in Pakistan and Iran. Although education and health have improved in urban areas, rural populations remain largely vulnerable to maternal and perinatal mortality and infant mortality and diseases, malnutrition being a major concern.
Presentation of the mission:
In 2017, ACF implemented several integrated project in Nutrition and Health, WASH, FSL and MHCP responding to the needs of the most vulnerable in Helmand, Ghor and Kabul. Moreover, ACF extended its ERM approach into more provinces such as Helmand, Ghor, Daykundi, Nimroz and Bamyan. 1,973 IDPs increased their access to sanitation and hygiene through latrines and hygiene kits, and 21,724 IDPs benefitted from multi-purpose cash distribution. Moreover, through this project, ACF Afghanistan organized a well-received photography exhibition in Kabul and Brussels, to raise awareness about the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
Through its Nutrition Surveillance department, ACF implemented with its partners 12 assessments (SMART, SQUEAC and RNA) across Afghanistan addressing current humanitarian data gaps and ensuring informed strategic programming decisions.
