Within this volatile environment, the insurgency in the North-East of the country and the linked widespread violence triggered a large scale crisis. Indeed, over 2.5 million people are forcibly displaced in the Lake Chad Basin region due to the Boko Haram insurgency, and new displacement continues.Resorting to terror, widespread sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), forced recruitment and suicide bombings, Boko Haram attacks on civilians persist. Ongoing threats from Boko Haram in all affected countries as well as the absence of basic services have created acute humanitarian and protection risks for those impacted by the crisis, including refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and local communities. Despite considerable advances in counter-insurgency operations, continued insecurity led to new large-scale and secondary displacements towards Cameroon and inside Niger.The end of 2016 and first months of 2017 have seen an increase in attacks in north-eastern Nigeria, while the security situation in Chad’s Lake region, Cameroonian border areas and Niger’s Diffa region remains volatile and unpredictable. In 2016, a great number of civilians were released from Boko Haram captivity in north-eastern Nigeria with the liberation of Local Government Areas (LGAs) where some 800,000 persons had been trapped over past years. Assessments conducted in newly recovered areas reveal severe humanitarian and protection conditions. Still, many people remain inaccessible to humanitarian actors due to insecurity, particularly in Nigeria’s Borno State and border areas of Cameroon and Niger.Job DescriptionAs part of our activities in Nigeria, we are looking for a Monitoring, Evaluation, Learning and Accountability Coordinator.He/she will provide technical MEAL guidance and leadership at all level of the Country Program, by leading efforts to document progress, effectiveness and impact of PUI´s intervention in the country.The MEAL Coordinator will ensure the use of technically appropriate needs assessment, monitoring and evaluation methods, contributing therefore to improve the quality and effectiveness of PUI humanitarian action.The Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) Coordinator is responsible for guiding the overall MEAL strategy and implementation or related activities within projects while providing timely and relevant information to stakeholders.The MEAL coordinator will support PUI’s operational and technical staff in ensuring the accountability of PUI’s programme in Lebanon by developing the appropriate MEAL strategies and protocols for each project/specific technical sector.Under the supervision of the Deputy Head of Mission for Programmes, and in cooperation with technical coordinators and MEAL staff in the operational bases and at coordination level, the MEAL Coordinator will:Lead the design and the roll-out of a sound and adapted-to-context MEAL strategy and operational guidance based on PUI institutional approachEnsure the quality of the logical framework and MEAL approaches within new sectors, programmes and projects and support reporting;Ensure the development and implementation of MEAL plans for each sector, programmes and projects, provide specific technical support for the conduction of assessments, surveys and ad-hoc data collection and analyses all through the project and programme cycle management;Sensitise and build the capacity of staff for an enhanced transparency, accountability and learning mind set in the mission and in the framework of a continuous capitalisation and learning approach.
