Programme Policy 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.
In South Sudan, humanitarian needs are on the rise. Prolonged political crisis, inter and intra- communal conflict, climate and economic shocks and stressors, and structural vulnerabilities cause the displacement of people and destruction of livelihoods, infrastructure and services and keep people in a vicious cycle of hunger and violence. The 2022 Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) estimates that 7.76 million people (63 percent of the population) are facing severe acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above).
Improved food security means both addressing urgent needs and immediate food gaps as well as investing in livelihoods so that vulnerable communities and households can better withstand future shocks. Further emphasis is required to support livelihood opportunities, especially in agriculture on which the majority of households depend, and access to services and assets with a specific emphasis on youth so as to reduce incentives for violence.
WFP programming covers a wide range of emergency, recovery and development interventions with different modalities of assistance, innovation and partnership. All programmes are currently guided by the Country Strategic Plan (CSP) 2023-2025.
Purpose of the assignment:
WFP South Sudan is implementing a multi-year (October 2020 to March 2025) project funded by the European Union Trust Fund (EUTF) for Africa: “Feeder Roads to Strengthen the Livelihoods and Resilience of Rural Communities – to Improve Food Security of The Target Vulnerable Populations in Northern and Western Bahr El Ghazal States and Selected Locations in Greater Upper Nile Region – South Sudan.”
The project is implemented through the Smallholder Agricultural Market Support (SAMS) and Food Assistance for Assets (FFA) programmes under WFP’s Safety Nets and Resilience (SNR) portfolio. SAMS and FFA fall under the CSP Strategic Outcome 3: “Food-insecure and shock-affected populations in targeted areas, especially women and youth, have improved livelihoods and more resilient and sustainable food systems by 2030 .”
The project’s overall objective is to contribute to improved stabilization and livelihood resilience of rural vulnerable communities in Greater Bahr El Ghazal and Greater Upper Nile. The project is expected to reach some 90,000 people vulnerable to climatic and other shocks: e.g., smallholder farmers, agro-pastoralists, private sector actors, state and country authorities, and customary chiefs at boma and village levels in the target counties. Activities include community asset creation, particularly community access roads, training and mentorship in agriculture and other life and business skills, access to agricultural technologies, and facilitation to improve agricultural production, productivity, post-harvest management, and marketing.
The Project Coordinator will be responsible for overall project coordination of the EU-funded project. S/he will report to the Head of SNR.
