CSRF Capacity Building Manager
Saferworld , South Sudan
Saferworld is an independent international organisation working to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with people affected by conflict to improve their safety and sense of security and conduct wider research and analysis. We use this evidence and learning to improve local, national and international policies and practices that can help build lasting peace. Our priority is people – we believe in a world where everyone can lead peaceful, fulfilling lives, free from fear and insecurity. We are a not-for-profit organisation operational in 12 countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
The Conflict Sensitivity Resource Facility (CSRF), funded by the British, Swiss, Dutch, and Canadian donor missions, is a Saferworld-managed project that supports the integration of conflict sensitive principles and practices into donor strategies and donor-funded programming in South Sudan. Conflict sensitivity is a programming approach that emphasises strong contextual analysis and programmatic flexibility to minimise aid’s negative consequences and maximise its positive impacts. Conflict sensitivity is particularly important in volatile, conflict-affected contexts such as South Sudan where inadequate understanding of conflict and political dynamics can lead to donors and implementing partners inadvertently exacerbating the conflict.
The CSRF programme is implemented by a consortium of NGOs led by Saferworld in collaboration with swisspeace and REACH. The CSRF completed a two-year pilot phase at the end of 2018 and has begun a five-year contract which runs from January 2019 to December 2023. The post-holder will be employed by Saferworld.
