These Terms of Reference are for a consultancy from August to October 2021 (three months), working 2 days per week. The consultant will be a Sudanese national who will provide technical advice and support to the CSF, based on their strong technical expertise on conflict sensitivity and long-term applied experience within the aid sector in Sudan. The consultancy will work closely with the CSF team.
The Conflict Sensitivity Facility works with donors, UN, INGOs, NNGOs and civil society in Sudan to develop and test innovative ways for aid to better fit the local context, minimize unintended harm and build our positive contributions. With initial funding from the FCDO, the facility, managed by Saferworld, builds on lessons learnt from a successful multi-donor approach in South Sudan that has been operating since 2016
The Conflict Sensitivity Facility (CSF) provides technical analysis, services and advice in support of integrating conflict sensitive principles and practices into donor strategies and donor-funded programming in Sudan. Conflict sensitivity is a programming approach that emphasises strong contextual analysis and programmatic flexibility to minimise aid’s negative consequences and maximise positive impacts. Conflict sensitivity is particularly important in volatile, conflict-affected contexts where inadequate understanding of conflict and political dynamics can lead to donors and implementing partners inadvertently exacerbating the conflict.
