Senior EU Aid Volunteer, Gender issues, Nepal (9 months)

Deployment dates: 
-
Description: 

VIN has been working in different communities of Nepal to empower women. The goal of VIN’s women’s empowerment program is to empower women socially and economically through education, life skills and income generation initiatives.

Women’s rights can be subordinated to those of men.  Married early, with little or no education, no land rights or independent income, women can be a voiceless section of society, dependent on men for their welfare and bearing the continued weight of cultural and social discrimination and violence against them. The threat of violence towards women can be another issue as women can face domestic violence, often unreported, or violence through organized trafficking of young girls sold for sex across Asia. If a woman does not feel safe within a society then she cannot be empowered within it.

This project seeks to improve the quality of life of women living in the underprivileged, rural communities by providing them with economic tools, a basic education, improved health and a life without violence.

VIN invites EU Aid volunteers to work with our staff and local volunteers to support the women of the community.

Required competences: 

The EU Aid Volunteer should have the Management competencies such as project implementation and fundraising.

Relational competencies such as awareness of gender issues, diplomacy, intercultural issues, team working and personal competencies including autonomy, adaptability, flexibilities etc. Priority for a candidate with knowledge on women issues in developing countries. Educated or trained on soft skills and women rights. Ability to provide income generation ideas in local level.

Operational details & security context: 

Tunisia’s Human Development Index value for 2016 is 0.721 positioning it at 96 out of 188 countries and territories.
Tunisia is located at the crossroads of Europe, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. This position lead to numerous waves of migrations and a big influence of neighboring countries, (namely Libya and Algeria). Despite the economic crisis, Tunisia was the only country of the Arab Spring that established a peaceful transition of power.
The main challenges of the country are:
• Reducing inequalities and improving access to basic social services: in connection with the economic crisis and unemployment, a growing number of vulnerable groups (especially younger people and women) is likely to fall into poverty with imitated access to basic social services;
• The response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the Libyan conflict: the Libyan crisis poses additional challenges to stability and development in Tunisia. In 2011 there has been a massive arrivals of refugees in Tunisia from the Libyan border. The refugees flow decreased during the following years for a number of reasons (among the others the closure of the Libyan-Tunisian border). Tunisia still lack and is finalizing a national asylum law. In 2015 here was a significant drop in the number of refugees and asylum-seekers, from approximately 1,100 at the beginning of 2015 to 760 at year end, as most pending asylum applications were processed and Syrians moved onward to Europe. The situation in Libya remained a potential source of arrivals, both by land and sea. In 2015, some 940 individuals travelling in seven boats were rescued at sea; among them were 150 asylum-seekers.
• Preparedness and management of natural disasters capacity
The current situation on Libyan border and some events occurred in the recent years (avian flu or H1N1 outbreaks, locusts pilgrims flood 2003) revealed a new challenge for the country: strengthening disaster management capacity, including preparedness and recovery.

Security conditions
Since Ben Ali's departure an interim government has ruled and different protests have taken place. As in any transitions, insecurity and violence remain a latent problem in some urban centers and inside of the country, the pressing demands of economic and social improvement which also fueled the revolution have gained importance in the public debate and triggered an avalanche of claims in all sectors of society.
Finally, Tunisia faces a jihadist threat. The security situation remains unstable.
The volunteer will be hosted by GVC Tunisia, responsible of coordination and implementation of activities at national level. GVC Tunisia is active since 2011 both in humanitarian and development actions responding to the refugees and migration crises and supporting local communities in rural areas. Young people and women are the main target of the GVC Tunisia ongoing projects improving their resilience capacity and their participation in economic, social and political life.
The EU Aid Volunteer will be hosted by GVC Tunisia, responsible of coordination and implementation of activities at national level. The EU Aid Volunteer will also work in direct coordination with local implementing partners aiming to building local community resilience to disasters.

GVC values
We uphold the Humanitarian Principles: humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independency.
We affirmatively engage the most vulnerable communities.

Operational details & security context: 

Tunisia’s Human Development Index value for 2016 is 0.721 positioning it at 96 out of 188 countries and territories.
Tunisia is located at the crossroads of Europe, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. This position lead to numerous waves of migrations and a big influence of neighboring countries, (namely Libya and Algeria). Despite the economic crisis, Tunisia was the only country of the Arab Spring that established a peaceful transition of power.
The main challenges of the country are:
• Reducing inequalities and improving access to basic social services: in connection with the economic crisis and unemployment, a growing number of vulnerable groups (especially younger people and women) is likely to fall into poverty with imitated access to basic social services;
• The response to the humanitarian crisis caused by the Libyan conflict: the Libyan crisis poses additional challenges to stability and development in Tunisia. In 2011 there has been a massive arrivals of refugees in Tunisia from the Libyan border. The refugees flow decreased during the following years for a number of reasons (among the others the closure of the Libyan-Tunisian border). Tunisia still lack and is finalizing a national asylum law. In 2015 here was a significant drop in the number of refugees and asylum-seekers, from approximately 1,100 at the beginning of 2015 to 760 at year end, as most pending asylum applications were processed and Syrians moved onward to Europe. The situation in Libya remained a potential source of arrivals, both by land and sea. In 2015, some 940 individuals travelling in seven boats were rescued at sea; among them were 150 asylum-seekers.
• Preparedness and management of natural disasters capacity
The current situation on Libyan border and some events occurred in the recent years (avian flu or H1N1 outbreaks, locusts pilgrims flood 2003) revealed a new challenge for the country: strengthening disaster management capacity, including preparedness and recovery.

Security conditions
Since Ben Ali's departure an interim government has ruled and different protests have taken place. As in any transitions, insecurity and violence remain a latent problem in some urban centers and inside of the country, the pressing demands of economic and social improvement which also fueled the revolution have gained importance in the public debate and triggered an avalanche of claims in all sectors of society.
Finally, Tunisia faces a jihadist threat. The security situation remains unstable.
The volunteer will be hosted by GVC Tunisia, responsible of coordination and implementation of activities at national level. GVC Tunisia is active since 2011 both in humanitarian and development actions responding to the refugees and migration crises and supporting local communities in rural areas. Young people and women are the main target of the GVC Tunisia ongoing projects improving their resilience capacity and their participation in economic, social and political life.
The EU Aid Volunteer will be hosted by GVC Tunisia, responsible of coordination and implementation of activities at national level. The EU Aid Volunteer will also work in direct coordination with local implementing partners aiming to building local community resilience to disasters.

GVC values
We uphold the Humanitarian Principles: humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independency.

Operational details & security context: 

Humanitarian Context
Oslo Accords agreements between the Israeli government and the PLO between the years 1993-1995 (Oslo Accords) led to the establishment of the Palestinian Authority (PA), which was formed in 1994. It holds civil powers over the Palestinians in the West Bank (but not East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip. It is in charge of some forty areas of responsibility, listed in the Oslo Accords, such as agriculture, trade, employment, water, religious affairs, telecommunications, education, the courts, municipal government, health care etc. The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) is in charge of foreign policy, while Israel remains in charge of security issues and border control.
According to this agreement between the Israeli government and the PLO, it divided the territories into the following three areas:
• Area A, consisting mainly of Palestinian cities, is under full Palestinian control, including civil affairs and security issues.
• Area B, consisting of villages and outlying areas, is under joint Palestinian-Israeli control, with Israel controlling the flow of goods and the movement of people
• Area C, which includes pastoral areas, Israeli settlements and military installations, remains under full Israeli control, including civilian affairs and security issues.
This division has far-reaching consequences for the everyday lives of the local population. For instance, in the West Bank, the areas over which the Palestinians have, in principle, complete control are geographically fragmented. Nevertheless, most administrative functions that were previously managed by the Israeli military government of the West Bank and Gaza have gradually been transferred to the PA, which was formed in 1994 pursuant to the Oslo Accords. The current Palestinian administration is also affected by the PLO's past actions. The Arab Summit in 1974 recognized the PLO as the “sole and legitimate representative of the Palestinian people” and since then the PLO has represented Palestine at the United Nations. On 29 November 2012, the UN General Assembly upgraded Palestine's status to "non-member Observer State at the United Nations".
Since 2013, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has attempted to revive the peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank. Kerry renewed separate talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders in October 2015 in order to quell the emerging violence. While the recent talks produced cautious optimism in the United States, relations between Israeli and Palestinian citizens remain tenuous and stalemate of the negotiation and peace processes. Since Trump’s elected as president, he promised that he will provide a historic peace deal between Palestinian and Israelis and lately he sent his senior advisor Kushner, with other members of a US delegation, to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on 24th August 2017.
Even though Palestine is a complex context characterized by a protracted crisis, the general security situation varies from Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem. GVC has been working in Palestine for over 20 years, and this has had an impact on cumulative knowledge of the political and security situation/development enabling the organisation to act rapidly and effectively in cases of emergency or irruption of political or armed violence in the country.
Security conditions
GVC have 5 different offices in 5 areas across the WB, East Jerusalem and Gaza strip, accordingly those offices located in different areas and for this the security level system is different in each area as follow:
1. Jerusalem office – Moderate (local and international staff+ EU Aid Volunteers)
2. West Bank offices (Ramallah, Tubas, Hebron) – substantial / Moderate (local and international staff+ EU Aid Volunteers)
3. Gaza office – substantial / high (local and international staff)
Each office area has specific and different SOPs and procedures and the security level subject of change up on regular security assessment.
In particular, Gaza still requires specific precautions before and during mission and therefore EU Aid Volunteers are not at the moment allowed to enter Gaza. For what it concerns the West Bank, the main GVC office is located in Ramallah city, which is generally safe and no particular security threats are present. Further, the high security standards adopted by GVC Palestine allow staff and EU Aid Volunteers to be updated instantaneously of any eventual incident or measure to be taken. Life-style in Ramallah city is very European and EU Aid Volunteers are able to live in a safe and adequate environment. The North and South West Bank offices, respectively in Tubas and Hebron, are also generally quiet and no particular threats are present for daily and short mission, although constant monitoring of the situation in the area needs specific attention mainly in Hebron.
The country doesn’t have any specific health risks and no endemic and epidemic threats are present. EU Aid Volunteers do not need any vaccination or prophylaxis. All EU Aid Volunteers are covered by an international health insurance which gives access to health facilities both in Palestine than in Israel.
The Security Level System (SLS) is based on Threat and not Risk. The Security Level System describes the general threat-based security environment. The Structured Threat Assessment evaluates five categories of threat: Armed Conflict, Terrorism, Crime, Civil Unrest and Hazards. Each category is evaluated using a point system, and a combination of these separate evaluations automatically determines the Security Level.
• Armed Conflict: Organized violence by groups fighting each other.
• Terrorism: Violence by individuals or groups against civilians or other non-combatant targets.
• Crime: Illegal activities undertaken for economic or personal gain. May or may not involve violence.
• Civil Unrest: Organized demonstrations or unauthorized disturbances to public order (e.g., rioting, looting). May or may not be violent.
• Hazards: Natural events or human-caused incidents which can lead to destruction, injury or death.
GVC have adopted security system based on security levels for different areas in Israel/West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza, as there are various movement restrictions, borders and checkpoints. GVC have a Security and evacuation plan for the country wide and specific Standard Operating Procedures for safety and security, as well as movement in the field. During the period of political tension, GVC mitigate through adapting to the situation and impose some movement restriction on staff in some cities in specific time frame, and implement no go zones and curfew hours during the tense situation.
GVC Country Director and GVC Security Officer guarantee that EU Aid Volunteers are working under appropriate and optimal psychological and physical conditions.
GVC Palestine follows high standard security policy and risk assessment procedures which cover the staff and all the EU Aid Volunteers involved in the activities implemented in the country. These measures, based on GVC's policies, are adapted to the needs of the local Palestinian context and constantly updated and they include travel and health risks. GVC Palestine security system includes: mission clearance system for all staff (EU Aid Volunteers included), both for field visits and regular daily movement, together with the constant daily monitoring on security situation. These measures include security management and evacuation plan for all the actions, including the EU Aid Volunteers, as well as security training aimed at the local and international staff and EU Aid Volunteers. As far as it concerns the EU Aid Volunteers in detail, a context-specific briefing on security and safety procedures is provided within 24 hours from their arrival in Palestine and/or at GVC office. This briefing includes the results from the risk assessment, the evacuation and security plan, procedures for evacuation and repatriation, crisis management, contacts with Security officer, and all the details of Embassies, police, fire stations and hospitals. The security measures include as well health and safety measures to be adopted by the staff and the EU Aid Volunteers. The EU Aid Volunteers are also informed about local customs and the appropriate behaviour in relation to risk and security management, as indicated in GVC Palestinian's policies.
GVC Palestine has a part-time Security Officer who works in the main office of Ramallah and is available 24h/24h, whom is responsible for: the security of GVC staff (local and international, including EU Aid Volunteers); the implementation of all security measures; the update of the security management system and its SOPs. Further, the Security Officer, under the lead of the Country Director, is constantly in contact with UNDSS (UN Department of Safety and Security), as well as Palestine coordination body such as INSO (The International NGO Safety Organization), AIDA (Association of International Development Agencies) and other security stakeholders. Through a security tree system, GVC Security Officer constantly informs all staff members and EU Aid Volunteers though sms and whatsapp messages of all security incidents and mitigation measure to be taken (24h/24h). GVC has inducted a policy of minimum residential standard of security, for all personal residences and its 5 offices in the West Bank (Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Tubas, Gaza), including international Volunteers.

2. West Bank offices (Ramallah, Tubas, Hebron) – substantial / Moderate (local and international staff+ EU Aid Volunteers)
3. Gaza office – substantial / high (local and international staff)
Each office area has specific and different SOPs and procedures and the security level subject of change up on regular security assessment.
In particular, Gaza still requires specific precautions before and during mission and therefore EU Aid Volunteers are not at the moment allowed to enter Gaza. For what it concerns the West Bank, the main GVC office is located in Ramallah city, which is generally safe and no particular security threats are present. Further, the high security standards adopted by GVC Palestine allow staff and EU Aid Volunteers to be updated instantaneously of any eventual incident or measure to be taken. Life-style in Ramallah city is very European and EU Aid Volunteers are able to live in a safe and adequate environment. The North and South West Bank offices, respectively in Tubas and Hebron, are also generally quiet and no particular threats are present for daily and short mission, although constant monitoring of the situation in the area needs specific attention mainly in Hebron.
The country doesn’t have any specific health risks and no endemic and epidemic threats are present. EU Aid Volunteers do not need any vaccination or prophylaxis. All EU Aid Volunteers are covered by an international health insurance which gives access to health facilities both in Palestine than in Israel.
The Security Level System (SLS) is based on Threat and not Risk. The Security Level System describes the general threat-based security environment. The Structured Threat Assessment evaluates five categories of threat: Armed Conflict, Terrorism, Crime, Civil Unrest and Hazards. Each category is evaluated using a point system, and a combination of these separate evaluations automatically determines the Security Level.
• Armed Conflict: Organized violence by groups fighting each other.
• Terrorism: Violence by individuals or groups against civilians or other non-combatant targets.
• Crime: Illegal activities undertaken for economic or personal gain. May or may not involve violence.
• Civil Unrest: Organized demonstrations or unauthorized disturbances to public order (e.g., rioting, looting). May or may not be violent.
• Hazards: Natural events or human-caused incidents which can lead to destruction, injury or death.
GVC have adopted security system based on security levels for different areas in Israel/West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza, as there are various movement restrictions, borders and checkpoints. GVC have a Security and evacuation plan for the country wide and specific Standard Operating Procedures for safety and security, as well as movement in the field. During the period of political tension, GVC mitigate through adapting to the situation and impose some movement restriction on staff in some cities in specific time frame, and implement no go zones and curfew hours during the tense situation.
GVC Country Director and GVC Security Officer guarantee that EU Aid Volunteers are working under appropriate and optimal psychological and physical conditions.
GVC Palestine follows high standard security policy and risk assessment procedures which cover the staff and all the EU Aid Volunteers involved in the activities implemented in the country. These measures, based on GVC's policies, are adapted to the needs of the local Palestinian context and constantly updated and they include travel and health risks. GVC Palestine security system includes: mission clearance system for all staff (EU Aid Volunteers included), both for field visits and regular daily movement, together with the constant daily monitoring on security situation. These measures include security management and evacuation plan for all the actions, including the EU Aid Volunteers, as well as security training aimed at the local and international staff and EU Aid Volunteers. As far as it concerns the EU Aid Volunteers in detail, a context-specific briefing on security and safety procedures is provided within 24 hours from their arrival in Palestine and/or at GVC office. This briefing includes the results from the risk assessment, the evacuation and security plan, procedures for evacuation and repatriation, crisis management, contacts with Security officer, and all the details of Embassies, police, fire stations and hospitals. The security measures include as well health and safety measures to be adopted by the staff and the EU Aid Volunteers. The EU Aid Volunteers are also informed about local customs and the appropriate behaviour in relation to risk and security management, as indicated in GVC Palestinian's policies.
GVC Palestine has a part-time Security Officer who works in the main office of Ramallah and is available 24h/24h, whom is responsible for: the security of GVC staff (local and international, including EU Aid Volunteers); the implementation of all security measures; the update of the security management system and its SOPs. Further, the Security Officer, under the lead of the Country Director, is constantly in contact with UNDSS (UN Department of Safety and Security), as well as Palestine coordination body such as INSO (The International NGO Safety Organization), AIDA (Association of International Development Agencies) and other security stakeholders. Through a security tree system, GVC Security Officer constantly informs all staff members and EU Aid Volunteers though sms and whatsapp messages of all security incidents and mitigation measure to be taken (24h/24h).

Operational details & security context: 

Humanitarian Context
With a population of 13.4 million, Cambodia is one of the most populous countries in Southeast Asia, and also one of the poorest. 80% of the population is rural, and an estimated one-third of Cambodians still live below the poverty line. After decades of civil war, the country emerged from conflict in the early 1990s, and the reconstruction phase has seen some economic growth, as well as improvements in overall health, education and income standards. However, significant challenges remain, and Cambodia is still classified as one of the world’s Least Developed Countries.
Moreover, Cambodia is one of the most disaster-prone countries in Asia, with floods and drought the primary natural hazards to affect the country. These have caused significant loss of life and substantial damages to infrastructure, agriculture and livelihoods. The frequent natural disasters have exacerbated the vulnerability of the mostly poor and rural population. In addition, issues with significant humanitarian impact, including climate change, landmines, environmental degradation, water and sanitation, health and other developmental issues, also affect Cambodia, severely obstructing development in a country seeking to rise out of years of internal conflict and instability.
Currently, much of disaster management in Cambodia is focused at the community level on preparedness, disaster risk reduction and response preparation.
Cambodia continues to strengthen its capacity to prepare and respond to disasters but will likely require further assistance from the international community. Coordination and cooperation can offer the support to help Cambodia prepare for, respond and minimize the effects of disasters.

Migration and Human Trafficking challenge:
Poverty, lack of jobs within Cambodia and family expectations are some of the driving factors pushing citizens to take advantage of globalization and the labour market imbalance between countries by migrating for better opportunities. Because of the inadequate economic, social or physical security of the migrants, the opportunities can end up being exploitative. Many migrants (usually undocumented) are victimized at the hands of perpetrators of contemporary forms of slavery, through human trafficking (especially women and children), labour exploitation and forced marriage. Strains brought on by financial insecurity are believed to lead to heightened stress and desperation, which in turn can stimulate a predisposition to domestic violence. Protection for migrant workers can be difficult to enforce due to the cross-country nature of the relationships.

Security conditions
Security conditions in Cambodia are generally good.
Incidents of politically-motivated violence have fallen in recent years, but political disputes could trigger violent protests.
The volunteer will be hosted by GVC Cambodia, responsible of coordination and implementation of activities at national level.
GVC Cambodia is active in the field of Disaster Risk Reduction, Food Security, human trafficking and migrations.
The volunteer will also work in direct coordination with local implementing partners aiming to building local community resilience to disasters.

GVC values:
We uphold the Humanitarian Principles: humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independency.
We affirmatively engage the most vulnerable communities.

Expected date decision on outcome: 
Operational details & security context: 

Linking North and West Africa, Mauritania is almost the most stable and secure country among the boiling Sahel Region countries.
Like the international community, Mauritania has been facing security challenges since the end of the last century. In the Sahel zone, with factors such as its armed conflicts, its ecological disturbances (repeated droughts), its problems of underdevelopment this area is in fact, exposed to insecurity.
The difficult socio-economic context creates a favourable field for the development of extremist ideas and transnational crime. The risks of violence and the threats that this implies are multiplied by situations of crisis or armed conflict in the region.
Even if the probabilities of inter-state armed conflicts in the region have never been so low, the fact remains that bordering countries of Mauritania are facing threat of armed, latent or open conflict.
In addition to the armed conflicts in bordering countries and their implications for regional security, there are serious consequences of the Libyan crisis. This conflict has caused many ex-combatants to flee to Sahel region.
In this shifting context of regional and global instability, disruption and uncertainty, Mauritania has been confronted with transnational security threats. Faced with the seriousness of the stakes involved, the national authorities have taken full measure of the threat, engaged to meet the challenges to the security of the country. This commitment gave birth to the national strategy against terrorism and transnational crime.

Alianza por la Solidaridad counts on a detailed safety and security plan adapted to the context, whose content binds the staff as much as the EU Aid Volunteers. The EU Aid Volunteers will be informed in due time on the safety and security measures; in particular, they will receive a security briefing within 24 hours upon arrival in Mauritania.

Expected date decision on outcome: 
Operational details & security context: 

Linking North and West Africa, Mauritania is almost the most stable and secure country among the boiling Sahel Region countries.
Like the international community, Mauritania has been facing security challenges since the end of the last century. In the Sahel zone, with factors such as its armed conflicts, its ecological disturbances (repeated droughts), its problems of underdevelopment this area is in fact, exposed to insecurity.
The difficult socio-economic context creates a favourable field for the development of extremist ideas and transnational crime. The risks of violence and the threats that this implies are multiplied by situations of crisis or armed conflict in the region.
Even if the probabilities of inter-state armed conflicts in the region have never been so low, the fact remains that bordering countries of Mauritania are facing threat of armed, latent or open conflict.
In addition to the armed conflicts in bordering countries and their implications for regional security, there are serious consequences of the Libyan crisis. This conflict has caused many ex-combatants to flee to Sahel region.
In this shifting context of regional and global instability, disruption and uncertainty, Mauritania has been confronted with transnational security threats. Faced with the seriousness of the stakes involved, the national authorities have taken full measure of the threat, engaged to meet the challenges to the security of the country. This commitment gave birth to the national strategy against terrorism and transnational crime.

Alianza por la Solidaridad counts on a detailed safety and security plan adapted to the context, whose content binds the staff as much as the EU Aid Volunteers. The EU Aid Volunteers will be informed in due time on the safety and security measures; in particular, they will receive a security briefing within 24 hours upon arrival in Mauritania.
