|Overview of position|
In August 2014, the UK Government made available a grant to our client for the purpose of supporting a program in Somalia, with the capacity to deliver in the short term on its mandate to coordinate early recovery efforts aligned to the Federal Government’s stabilisation strategy, and to help facilitate the international community’s efforts to help stabilize newly recovered areas of south-central Somalia..

Linked to aforementioned capacity assessment, identify measures to strengthen stabilization coordination mechanisms and related monitoring and evaluation structures and support internal alignment of UNSOM CRESTA/A team coordination approaches to compliment Somali structures.
Assist in the implementation of the UNSOM CRESTA/A team’s stabilisation information management system including collation of material from key partners and recommend means by which improvements could be made.
