|Overview of position||Drought conditions in Somalia have worsened during the first half of 2022 leading to acute displacement across the country. During this period of worsening conditions, displacement leaving affected districts into urban IDP sites has increased in frequency with an estimated one million individuals displaced since conditions deteriorated. Within the CCCM Cluster, there are seven sub-national locations across the country that provide coordination systems assisting CCCM partners in implementing operations and feeding critical information into state-level OCHA-led coordination structures. While these seven sub-national hubs are fully functional providing support to CCCM partners, increases in the frequency and quantity of displacement have presented challenges in coordinating sub-national responses with CCCM partners and humanitarian service providers. Therefore, the Banadir CCCM Focal Point position has been established with the aim of supporting overall sub-national cluster coordination for the region. Banadir is a strategic region for the cluster given the large number of IDP sites and the numerous coordination challenges that require a dedicated cluster focal point. This degree assistance looks to strengthen the operationalization of CCCM principles outlined in both the CCCM Cluster’s Famine Prevention Plan and Joint Inter-Sectoral Famine Prevention Plan overall increasing the quality of CCCM interventions.
Currently, CCCM Cluster Sub-National Focal Points are accountable for the CCCM response to the humanitarian crisis. Focal Points must ensure the inclusion of key humanitarian partners within the sector, respecting their mandates and programme priorities. The Senior Program Assistant (CCCM Cluster) for Banadir Sub-National will work to lead the current Sub-National Cluster in coordinating all CCCM operations. This will entail strengthened coordination amongst CCCM partners and establishing additional relationships with sub-national focal points for the various clusters following up on longstanding challenges that may be affecting the overall response. The Senior Program Assistant (CCCM Cluster) will also play an instrumental role in enabling CCCM partners at the sub-national level to operationalize core CCCM activities as part of the cluster’s Famine Prevention Plan. This may entail holding trainings or on-the-ground support to CCCM partners while emphasizing the critical importance of community engagement and site-level presence by CCCM partners within the famine prevention response. Additionally, Senior Program Assistant (CCCM Cluster) will be willing to engage in frequent travel to sub-national locations that may be facing numerous challenges requiring supplementary cluster support such as umbrella settlements in Kahda and Daynile.
