Job Title: Country Finance Coordinator – Democratic Republic of the Congo

Code: SR-38-1078

Duty station: Goma, with frequent travels to all locations in the mission

Starting date: ASAP

Contract duration: 6 months

Reporting to: Head of Mission

Supervision of: 10 staff

Dependents: NO


General context of the project

Since 2013-2014, 172,403 refugees from the Central African Republic have taken refuge in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the provinces of South Ubangi, North Ubangi and Bas Uele. The crisis in CAR has been one of the most forgotten in 2018, both in terms of media attention and financial support, despite some 590,000 refugees still outside the country, 30% of whom reside in the DRC. Of the 172,403 Central African refugees registered by UNHCR in the three provinces in February 2019, only 35% are currently in the 5 camps (Boyabu and Mole in South Ubangi, Bili and Inke in North Ubangi and Mboti in Bas Uélé), while the remaining 112,127 are currently out of camp, increasing their vulnerability. The availability of information on the conditions, location and needs of CAR refugees outside the camps remains insufficient and the low presence of humanitarian actors active in the sites outside the camps slows down and makes more expensive the response operations and worsens the conditions of the refugees. . In addition, the presence of refugees in host communities adds to an already precarious system of services. The province of Bas Uélé is the one that between the three provinces poses more problems of accessibility, because of the road situation, and security because of the incursions of armed groups coming from the CAR (especially for Bas-Uélé).
