The intensity of the disaster in Central America caused by ETA and IOTA hurricanes and the call for humanitarian assistance from the government of Honduras led HI to organize this rapid exploratory mission under the Authority of the Emergency Division. The objective of this mission was to understand the impact of the hurricanes on the population already strongly affected by COVID-19 crisis, to assess the response capacities of the actors present on the area and the potential gaps and to figure out the coordination mechanism in place.

After a first evaluation phase, HI wishes to implement an integrated emergency response; a Concept Note has been developed and shared with several donors. This note includes 4 pillars: Physical access; Survival needs; Psychosocial support; Inclusion.

In this context, HI is looking for an Emergency Project Manager to implement activities to cover the Specific Needs (Psychosocial support, Protection and Inclusive Humanitarian Action) of the most vulnerable populations. One of the first missions of the Emergency Project Manager will be to contribute to the definition of the areas, target population and partners of intervention, in line with HI's overall operational strategy in the country.**
