Kenya: Consultancy to support the development and piloting of a Toolkit to reinforce Accountability to Affected Populations(AAP) and Community…

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 27 Jul 2018

Community Engagement and Accountability to Affected populations(AAP) are core cross cutting components of the current UNICEF strategic plan. It is one of the key pillars of many global initiatives such as the UNICEF’s global strategies for Health (2016-2030), Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), Ending Violence against Children, community approaches to total sanitation (CATS), and community based management of severe acute malnutrition (CMAM). These approaches emphasize the key role of community engagement towards improving program outcomes particularly through increased demand for and use of quality services, greater social accountability, and addressing social norms and behavioral determinants.

As part of strengthening this aspect of programming, UNICEF has received some funding from DFID and BMGF to strengthen Community engagement through the development of guidelines, tools, standards and indicators. This investment is aimed at building the organization’s capacity for Communication and Community Engagement by addressing identified institutional gaps and address it by strengthening capacities of government and CSO partners to effectively place community engagement at the center of development and humanitarian work

This effort is in line with most of UNICEF’s current initiatives including the global Business case and framework on scaling up Accountability to Affected populations, the Eastern and Southern Africa Region’s guidance note on AAP, and the Communication and Community Engagement Initiative1.

Justification/Purpose of the Consultancy

Community Engagement is an essential element of development and emergency programming. Trusted, clear and effective communication and engagement approaches are critical in maintaining good community feedback mechanisms, addressing expectations, and ensuring that misunderstanding and/or rumors do not undermine programming and or response efforts, in case of humanitarian context.

Good Community Engagement helps implementers gain insights into the perceptions and behaviors of different groups which is essential for developing effective and targeted messaging. Key to the achievement of this is the capacity of UNICEF staff and implementing partners which is yet to reach its full potential.

This consultancy is intended to support the mapping of existing Accountability to Affected Communities landscape in ESAR. It will also support the development and piloting of a Toolkit to be used by UNICEF country offices in the development and strengthening of capacities of Government counter parts and Implementing Partners to plan, design and implement effective community engagement interventions.
