Background and purpose
UNICEF is currently working with the Government of Rwanda to implement the Country Programme 2018-2023. The overall aim of the Country Programme is to accelerate progress towards the realization of all rights of all children.
The programme of cooperation seeks to achieve sustainable results for children at various stages of the life cycle, and is focused on selected outcomes related to health, education, early childhood development, nutrition, water and sanitation and child protection.
Special emphasis within the programme is put on applying Communication for Development (C4D) as a strategy to effectively promote social and behavioral change among caregivers and other immediate duty-bearers and address harmful social norms. This strategy contributes to reducing barriers to the equitable realization of children’s rights in family and community settings in a more sustainable and efficient manner.
The purpose of the proposed consultancy is to contribute to strengthening the strategic C4D interventions in support of the Country Programme implementation.
Justification
UNICEF Rwanda undertakes rigourous effort to ensure that C4D is coordinated across programmes to increase knowledge and skills to improve health, nutrition, sanitation and hygiene practices and early learning, and to reduce violence against children and sustain demand for quality social services.
Ever growing scope and complexity of social and behavioural change interventions undertaken by UNICEF Rwanda and national partners require additional capacities with specialized skills and knowledge, to ensure timely implementation, monitoring and quality assurance of the C4D interventions.
Therefore, UNICEF seeks to contract a national consultant who will contribute to strengthening the strategic C4D interventions in support of the Country Programme implementation by ensuring quality deliverables as per agreed timelines.
Objectives
Under overall guidance of Chief of CAP and direct supervision of C4D Specialist, C4D Consultant will work closely with the CAP Section and UNICEF programme staff to provide technical support for implementation and monitoring of the evidence-based C4D interventions of UNICEF Rwanda.
Key expected results:
Support provided to C4D Specialist and programmes in development, implementation and monitoring of social mobilisation and community engagement campaigns in the areas of selected outcomes related to health, education, early childhood development, nutrition, water and sanitation and child protection, including in emergency preparedness and response contexts. This will include development of multimedia assets for the campaign and developing media plans and timelines.
Support provided in maintaining and further strengthening partnerships with all relevant stakeholders to promote participation of communities in social and behavioural change, supportive of the programme goals.
Support provided to ensure that culturally relevant and attractive behaviour change communication materials are designed, pre-tested, and produced timely, meeting requirements and quality standards.
