Logistics Officer Jobs Description
The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT:
Each year, WFP supports more than 5 million people across South Sudan with food assistance to meet their needs. South Sudan’s climate is characterized by extremes and highly vulnerable to natural hazards. Nearly 87 percent of the population depends on agriculture, livestock, and forestry, therefore climate change has profoundly impacted the country due to changing weather patterns and increased intensity of natural disasters. 2021 marked the third year of unusually heavy floods which devastated large parts of the country and destroyed large parts of the annual harvest. 2022 is likely to see a fourth year of unprecedented flooding in South Sudan. For most of the year, many locations are isolated and inaccessible by all surface means of transportation, including impassable roads and riverways blocked by water hyacinth.
In addition, South Sudan lacks sustainable fuel options as the main sources of fuel are firewood and charcoal, which are prohibitively expensive and often require women and girls to travel long distances to collect. Deforestation has become a major issue in South Sudan as it exacerbates the consequences of floods and is a main source of cooking fuel for most vulnerable communities. The Sudd region of South Sudan is one of the top methane emitters in the region, due to the prevalence of water hyacinth, which methane when decomposing, 20-80 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Thus, this invasive species not only kills native species of plants and animals, blocks natural waterways and transport networks, however, it also contributes significantly to global warming.
This project aims to enable South Sudanese to have safe access to sustainable environmentally friendly cooking fuel using water lily hyacinth from clearing rivers and from their future maintenance. This project will provide an alternative source of cooking fuel to reduce reliance on firewood/charcoal and thus reduce impact on deforestation, while it will also provide additional community benefits in that the use of water hyacinth will also lead to clearance of rivers and maintenance of waterways, opening new transport networks which will be crucial if flooding continues. Lastly, this project will support communities, particularly women and girls, for whom the burden of collecting firewood falls on, to ensure sustainable access to affordable and reliable fuel sources, reducing protection concerns, allowing households to cook to meet their food needs, eventually providing an alternative source of livelihoods. This position will support the value chain analysis (VCA) to better understand the supply chain, context, map current stakeholders and follow up on roadmap and recommendations from the VCA.
