Humanity & Inclusion recruits 01 Senior Innovation project manager

HI, Humanity & Inclusion/Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation with no religious or political affiliations operating in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Since the organisation was first founded in 1982, we have set up development programmes in 62 countries and responded to many emergencies. Today we have a budget of around 150 million euros, with 3500 employees worldwide.

HI is engaged in an employment policy in favour of disabled workers.

For further information about the association:

CONTEXT: Atlas Logistique is an operational unit of HI, supporting humanitarian actors since 1993. Atlas Logistique (AL) facilitates, optimizes and accelerates the delivery of aid in emergency and chronic humanitarian situations. Our mission is to open the humanitarian space to the most difficult to access populations, and to optimize humanitarian supply chains.

We advocate for an innovative vision of operational logistics, seen not as a support function for operations, but as a vector of humanitarian impact. Operational logistics makes the humanitarian aid system more efficient, more inclusive of isolated populations and more respectful of the environment. It can also contribute to the emergence of market players as levers of resilience and development in fragile countries.  We are constantly rethinking our projects so that they serve this vision and our humanitarian impact mandate.

The Signal is Atlas Logistique’s project that seeks to analyse, produce and disseminate information that improves the planning and decision-making capacity of the humanitarian community in emergency preparedness, emergency, reconstruction, and development contexts. Convinced that there is no efficiency in the humanitarian environment without equity and relevance, we have developed the « logistics vulnerability” concept to improve the impact of aid, making it more effective, relevant, equitable, and inclusive. Based on extensive data analysis and in collaboration with affected communities and market actors, we identify logistical issues that can create or reinforce inequities, hinder resilience, and prevent communities from recovering. The SIGNAL project aims at improving the targeting and prioritization of the least resilient populations, improve their ability to recover, and limit the negative impacts of aid.

This project is an ambitious and visionary approach of impact logistics. It is currently piloted in Haiti, Burkina, Togo, Benin and is about to be launched in Niger, Mali and Madagascar.
