Current Situation

The West African region is characterized by a complex pattern of population movements. While most of the movements take place at the intraregional level, generally within the ECOWAS area, there is also a substantial number of people moving beyond the region, to North Africa and Europe, as well as some southward movements. These movements usually comprise a mix of migrants travelling for economic reasons; nomadic and seasonal movements; people fleeing insecurity, political instability, or violence (i.e. refugees and asylum seekers); victims of trafficking; and unaccompanied children, amongst others. Many of these movements are effected in different stages, with rationales and protection concerns changing along the journey. Very little is known about the drivers of these movements, the profiles of the concerned persons, the routes being used and more importantly on the protection risks people face during their journey. While humanitarian actors have traditionally designed their programs to respond to the needs of populations perceived as ¿static¿, the unprecedented scale of movements at cross regional level over the last years has highlighted the specific vulnerabilities of migrants while in route to other countries.
The strategy aims at raising awareness in the West African countries of origin of migrants to reduce or end the dangerous journey, data collection and analysis to best understand the phenomena and design appropriate response, strengthening protection environment in the region and strengthening partnership and coordination including through capacity building of governments in registration, documentation and solution delivery.
These activities will be part UNHCR interventions and will have a direct impact on the reduction of statelessness and increase the protection of these exposed and vulnerable groups and in line with the commitment of the West African States where ECOWAS have committed to the Banjul Action Plan on Statelessness.

Working and Living Conditions

The position will be based at the UNHCR Regional Representation for West Africa in Dakar, a family duty station (Hardship classification A) with frequent missions to the region. Dakar is a liveable city. The living conditions in Dakar are good and the social climate is calm. Senegal is an open country that enjoys social stability resulting from the smooth functioning of state institutions. Senegal is also provided with a good level of infrastructure (e.g. roads, distribution of water, electricity, etc.)
Senegal is also a popular tourist destination. The access to health services in Dakar is good. The yellow fever vaccine is compulsory and vaccination cards should be presented at the entrance. Vaccinations against Meningococcal Meningitis and Hepatitis A and B are also recommended. The basic drugs are available in pharmacies but it is recommended to bring specific prescription drugs.
The currency used in Senegal is Franc CFA (XOF). Many hotels, restaurants and large businesses in Senegal accept the main international credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.). It is also possible to withdraw cash from automatic telling machines found in all the major cities.
The accommodation facilities are in general good and the choice is wide. It is possible to rent unfurnished and furnished accommodations. Transportation in town can be easily arranged through local taxis.
The incumbent will be briefed on conditions in locations within the region when on mission as appropriate.

Security Considerations

The country is at the level of Security 2, which corresponds to « Low », with the exception of the Casamance natural region (administrative regions of Kolda, Sédhiou and Ziguinchor) where acts of banditry are often reported but also the presence of Elements of the Movement of Democratic Forces of Casamance (MFDC) and unexploded ordnance (UXO). All United Nations personnel must scrupulously comply with UNDSS procedures and recommendations during their assignment to Senegal. Thefts and burglary are the main incidents against UN personnel.

Additional Factors

– Reports reflecting regional activities by UNHCR on mixed migration are prepared and distributed regularly and in a timely manner.
– Proposals for funding, as well as narrative and financial reports are of quality and submitted in a timely fashion.
External partners are informed regularly on all aspects of the protection and well-being of persons of concern and the status of UNHCR operations in West Africa, with linkages to the mixed migration routes outwards of the region
