Web Database Developer at the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF)

Job Title: Web Database Developer

Job Number: 527500
Location: Nigeria
Work Type: Consultancy

Rationale
After nine years of hostilities between Nigerian security forces and non-state armed groups, the humanitarian crisis in north-east Nigeria continues. Civilians bear the brunt of a conflict that has resulted in widespread displacement, lack of protection, destroyed infrastructure and collapsed basic services. Indeed, an estimated 7.1 million people (2.3 million girls, 1.9 million boys, 1.6 million women and 1.3 million men) in the three most affected states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe now depend on humanitarian assistance for their survival. More specifically, the 2019 Humanitarian Needs Overview estimates that the protection and well-being of 2.7 million children and adolescents (1.5 million girls and 1.2 million boys) in the north-east remain at risk – mainly due to the complex and protracted conflict, with higher vulnerabilities anticipated in inaccessible areas. Community resilience to protect children has been weakened, resulting in negative coping mechanisms.

Both Boko Haram and CJTF (hereinafter referred to as non-state armed group) have been listed by the Secretary General under Security Council Resolution 1612 as recruiting and using children in combat and support roles. Boko Haram has also been listed for abduction. The Office of the National Security Advisor’s 2015 estimate of 8,000 child combatants has not been borne out by the numbers of children rescued or recovered. Still, on 15 September 2017, the Country Task Force on Monitoring and Reporting identified six grave violations committed against children (CTFMR) and CJTF signed an Action Plan to end the use and recruitment of children. This CJTF pledge includes not only identifying and releasing all children to UNICEF but also instructing its members to cease all use and recruitment of children.

The data gathering need is huge to support community-based reintegration for children associated with the Civilian Joint Task Force in target communities in North-East Nigeria and strengthen their understanding of the socio-economic reintegration needs of children and their positive role in communities as agents of peace. Data collection through the number of questions to be filled out for every single child along with the need to perform different analyses will make it practically too cumbersome and exhausting if done without a proper data management system. A proper data management software system is therefore needed to handle aspects related to data entry, representation, and analyses so that useful conclusions could be drawn for proper. At the same time, the choice of system needs to ensure data integrity, validation and allow efficient working in a team-based environment with proper user privileges.

Purpose
UNICEF Child Protection section is looking for a reputable consultant to develop an interactive web-based database (user-friendly version) along with the interactive dashboard which will be used for the data collection and tacking of children’s who were formerly associated with an armed group, detained and released from an administrative custody and track the progress of their reintegration into communities. Major considerations should include as follows:

  • Online user-friendly interface compatible to low-bandwidth internet facilities, as well as offline data collection and synchronization functionality.
  • Online database should be able to capture, archive, and retrieve information of up to 10,000 + project beneficiaries disaggregated by sex, intervention type, and implementing partners and project areas including household profile, training/livelihood supports received.
  • Track the status and historical journey of individual cases as it goes along recruitment, detention, separation and the process of release and reintegration to communities and update information which may receive during follow up by child protection senior facilitators.
  • Total users of this database would be about 50 + including persons involved in data entry, management/validation and reviewers in UNICEF Borno field offices. Data entry staff should be allowed to use tablets and mobile phones to update case records from remote locations.
  •  Different array of data analysis, e.g. number of beneficiaries receiving different reintegration services and other supports from the project; each individual beneficiary should have unique searchable beneficiary code.
  • Compatible to generate IR (Intermediate Result) based results as well as monthly and quarterly achievements for relevant monitoring indicators; to be mentioned that single data can go to multiple IRs and indicators.
  • Ensure a secure password protected login system to allow safe authentication. Different level of access to the web-database needs to be ensured e.g. Project management, Database administrator, implementing partner NGO, donor’s representative and field personnel, etc.
  • Ensure the provision and capability for automated backup of database each month, downloadable by Administrator and project staff and to run different queries based on requirement.
  • Database should have provision to export/import case status in case of any change and migration to CPIMS+

Social and Behaviour Chance Communication Consultant at the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF)

Job Title: Social and Behaviour Chance Communication Consultant for Development of Messages for the Spotlight Initiative

Job Number: 527468
Location: Nigeria
Work Type: Consultancy

Background/Purpose of Assignment

  • Violence against women and girls in Nigeria is widespread and exists in all forms in public and private spheres.  According to the 2014 Violence Against Children Survey (VACS), one in four girls, one in two girls and one in six girls have experienced sexual, physical and emotional violence respectively. Domestic violence remains pervasive (16% intimate partner violence prevalence rate) while 30% of women aged 15-49 have experienced sexual abuse (33% in urban and 24% in rural areas) (NDHS 2013). Moreover, out of the 10.5 million out-of-school children, two-thirds are girls and statistics reveal that by the age of 16, 21% of adolescent girls are either pregnant or have given birth.
  • Violence can take many forms, including physical, sexual and emotional violence, and varies in severity. While both boys and girls may experience violence, being a girl presents unique vulnerabilities – some with consequences that can last a lifetime. Gender discrimination, norms and practices mean that adolescent girls are likely to experience certain forms of violence, such as sexual violence, at much higher rates than boys and to be exposed to certain harmful practices, notably child marriage and female genital mutilation.
  • Globally, Nigeria accounts for the third highest number of women and girls who have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM), reported at 25 percent prevalence and has the largest number of child brides in Africa and one of the highest prevalence rates in the world: 23 million (or 43 percent of girls) married before age 18, and 17 percent married before they turn 15. These harmful practices occur in a context of limited knowledge and access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) information and services, with complications of early child bearing (maternal mortality ratios is at 576 per 100,000) and obstructed labor such as obstetric fistula which affect an estimated 20,000 women and girls every year.
  • The Spotlight Initiative (SI) is a global partnership between the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in support of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. The Initiative was launched in September 2017 by the UN Secretary-General and the EU High Representative and Vice President (HRVP). The Initiative provides a model for partnerships with donors, civil society, and the UN to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in a comprehensive manner leveraging comparative expertise. SDG 5 and the achievement of gender equality are placed at the center of efforts (alongside Goal 16) with the aim to provide an enabling environment for the implementation of all goals. In Nigeria, the Initiative is led by UN Women, UNFPA, UNDP, UNICEF and UNESCO.
  • The Spotlight Initiative in Nigeria will address the linkages between sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices with sexual and reproductive health and rights. The focus will be on preventing and addressing the root causes of gender-based violence and harmful practices and ensuring access to inclusive, timely, and quality services for victims and survivors. The most vulnerable women and girls, who face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, will be specifically targeted and included in all phases of the programme.
  • The goal of the Initiative is to mobilize, set up and strengthen community/religious structures; engage and conduct community dialogues with key opinion leaders (community, religious, traditional) that can be used as advocacy platforms for messaging and engagement in the promotion of ending VAC and other HP in prioritized states of Adamawa, Ebonyi, Lagos, Cross River and Sokoto.

Prevention and social norms:

  • Spotlight aims to change social norms and behaviors at community, individual and family levels advocating with political and religious leaders to engage them as positive influencers and champions of non-violence.
  • To ensure sustainability and to break generational transfer of negative norms, Spotlight will target men and boys and work with youth in schools.
  • Spotlight will engage with the media for creative advocacy, capturing local language and context to create public awareness and change negative norms.

Prevention is the nucleus of the Initiative and the comprehensive and multi-dimensional approach to prevention will be based on the following key elements:

  • Analyzing root causes and risks by examining behavioral factors that lead people to decision-making. Critically examining the behavioral factors that lead people to make decisions, act on them, think about, influence, and relate to one another, and how they develop believes and attitude.
  • Working with relevant formal and informal institutions that influences these behavioral factors (including beliefs, perceptions and behaviors) as the key custodians of socio-cultural norms.
  • Learning institutions such as academic institutions (primary, secondary and tertiary), training centres e.g. teachers training colleagues, police colleagues, the law school and non-formal institutions e.g. women networks, peer education groups, traditional and religious institutions and council of elders will be targeted to use their platforms to promote equitable social norms and behaviours and non-violence among their subject and worshipers.
  • Media, entertainers and social media influencers will also be engaged as they have a huge impact and potential to change pervasive negative norms, attitudes and behaviors.
  • Engaging men and boys to become upholders of the rights of women and girls and not perpetrators of VAWG.
  • Male influencers at all levels will be identified as champions in the communities using existing platforms e.g. HeforShe campaign, husband and future husbands’ schools, men and boys’ networks and coalitions.
  • Working with men and boys’ networks and coalitions will support the campaign against GBV/HP, leveraging on existing platforms that target men at the community level.
  • Transformative change requires empowerment of women and girls to help them live a life of dignity. Thus, women and girls will be supported to access information on their rights including SRHR, human rights, sexuality education, to build networks and promote peer learning and counselling. For those furthest behind, this will be coupled with livelihoods support.
  • The proposed task will address issues of gender equitable social norms, attitudes and behaviors change at community and individual levels to prevent VAM/C and HP.
  • UNICEF plans to work with relevant government and Civil Society Organizations including the National Orientation Agency, religious and traditional organizations at Federal and state levels for community mobilization and sensitization to create awareness on the effects of harmful practices and every form of violence against children especially girls as well as to engender positive social norms change.

How Can You Make a Difference?

  • Coordinate a rapid assessment of the social norms attached to violence against women and girls in the six focus states
  • Coordinate community engagement activities across the six States
  • Provide monthly reporting on community engagement activities
