NATIONAL CONSULTANT TO PROVIDE FIELD SUPPORT (Open to Nationals of Ukraine only)

Kramatorsk (Ukraine)

Since the beginning of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine in April 2014, over 2 million people have been displaced within Ukraine and abroad. At least 8,500 people have lost their lives and a further 18,000 were wounded. The conflict has taken a substantial social and economic toll on the communities that are suffered from the direct impact of active fighting or currently hosting IDPs in eastern Ukraine. In order to help the Government of Ukraine and local communities to cope with the conflict effects, UNICEF implemented a wide range of activities in eastern Ukraine, including the oblasts which are close to ECA. Thus, with the support of the Government of Germany through its Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), UNICEF has developed the “Towards greater social cohesion and integration of IDPs in eastern Ukraine” programme which seeks to address the needs of IDPs and hosting communities in Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia oblasts. Also within “Strengthening resilience and civic engagement of adolescents and youth in conflict-affected eastern Ukraine” project funded by EU, UNICEF implements number of activities in the oblasts of Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia. In order to support programme activities and to gain the main goals of the projects, there is a need to involve a consultant to reach the following outputs depicted below.
