 Supervisor: CSRF Director
 No. of Post: 1
 Duty Station: Khartoum
 Duration: Fixed Term, 12 Months
 Closing Date: 15 April 2021




Description of the Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSF):


Saferworld has been working on and in Sudan and South Sudan since 2002, including on issues of community security, small arms control, and conflict-sensitive development. 

Saferworld is currently establishing the CSF aimed at supporting the integration of more conflict sensitive practices into the policies, practices and programmes of aid actors in Sudan. It draws upon Saferworld’s extensive experience of supporting similar processes in a range of contexts, coupled with our deep contextual knowledge and long-term, established relationships with Sudanese civil society from across the country.  Over the past four years for example, Saferworld has designed and built up the Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF) in South Sudan. The CSRF has supported aid actors to promote deeper and more nuanced understanding of how aid interacts with conflict and to help them to build coherent and effective responses to the challenges of operating in South Sudan.


The proposed project will support individuals and organisations to develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the context within which they are operating, with the aim of ensuring that interventions do not aggravate conflict and instead contribute to peace. It will support aid actors to do this by providing high-quality analysis, technicaladvice and capacity building, and by supporting lesson learningand the sharing of knowledge about complex conflict issues in Sudan. The approach will be informed by continuous consultation with a diverse range of local and international actors, and will adopt a flexible, iterative and adaptive approach

We have a strong thematic focus to our conflict prevention work prioritising: people’s security and access to justice services; gender norms that cause and perpetuate violent conflict; the impact of external conflict drivers including weapons flows; conflict-sensitive political, economic, development, and security engagement; and inclusive and accountable governance and peacebuilding processes. We work in or on more than 25 countries and territories; we currently have regional and country programmes in Central and South Asia, the Caucasus, Eastern Europe, the Horn and Great Lakes regions of Africa, and the Middle East and North Africa.
