Job Title: National Expert – Early Warning and Early Response
Job ID: 11852
Location: Abuja
Vacancy Type: Service Contract (SC)
Posting Type: External
Contract Duration: Contract duration of 6 months
Background
The historical, cultural and religious dimensions of Northern Nigeria systematically restrict the ability of women and girls to engage in formal peacebuilding processes. Nevertheless, women and girls have a critical role to play in peacebuilding, as outlined by numerous UN Security Council Resolutions and reports. Nigeria’s National Action Plan (NAP) for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 for 2017 – 2020 outlines five strategic outcomes towards strengthening the role of women and girls’ in peacebuilding as follows:

  • Women’s vulnerability to conflict and human security threats are averted and women’s contributions integrated into preventive and mitigation measures;
  • Meaningful participation of women in peace and security processes, governance and decision-making structures at all levels is attained;
  • Women’s rights to peace and security, including access to justice and redress are effectively protected and provided;
  • Women’s human security needs are met especially through crisis management, recovery and reconstruction efforts;
  • Women, peace and security interventions are well coordinated with impact achieved and tracked through collaboration and synergy.

There exists, therefore, a strategic imperative to strengthen the role of women and girls in the peacebuilding process, and in particular with respect to their inclusion, participation and influence in early warning and early response systems. Such steps help in advancing progress towards several of the NAP Strategic Outcomes. However, above and beyond of being in line with global and national priorities, women’s empowerment and engagement in early warning and early response systems are a prerequisite for a more holistic and inclusive peace. Building the capacity of women and girls to effectively contribute to such systems therefore becomes a priority for peace and overall development.
In the light of the foregoing, and given the need to further strengthen preventive capacities of states and communities to detect, mitigate and respond to outbreaks of violence, UNDP will build and strengthen the early warning early responses systems in the states of Adamawa, Gombe and Plateau. This will be done with a focus on women and girls, ensuring that EWERS include women and girls, engage them as part of the community and state infrastructure for peace, and respond to their needs for increased human security. To fulfil these two objectives, efforts will target state capacities as well as communities in a parallel approach that will gradually increase state and community capacities for conflict prevention.
State capacities will be strengthened through the development, roll out and implementation of a ICT-based notification system that can serve as the conduit for early warning. UNDP has already pioneered an earlier version of such a system in Plateau State, and would aim to strengthen the system in this state, along with implementing similar systems in Adamawa and Gombe states. The project is expected to contribute to a reduction in conflict and violence through increased capacity of state institutions to quickly detect, identify and appropriately respond to areas of concern for outbreaks of violence. It will do this both by increasing the capacity of state institutions to manage the early phases of conflict onset, as well as leveraging on the peacebuilding potential harnessed by women and girls in their communities.
Under the direct supervision of the Team Leader, Governance and Peacebuilding, the National Expert is responsible for management and implementation of the project. The National Expert works in close collaboration with the UNDP Project Analyst, Conflict & Peacebuilding, UN Peace and Development Advisor, UN Women Colleagues, National and Local Institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations, and beneficiaries.
