Partnership for Human Development – National Community Development Consultant – 18 de Janeiro de 2017

National Community Development Consultant

Up to 50 days from Jan-Dec 2017

Dili, Timor-Leste with travel to municipalities

 

The Program

The Partnership for Human Development (PHD) represents Australia’s long-term vision for enhancing human development in Timor Leste. It brings together the Australian Embassy’s (Timor Leste) diverse activities in health, education, water, sanitation, nutrition, gender equality, disability and social protection into a single program to maximise effectiveness, relevance and performance. This investment in Timor-Leste will work towards Strategic Objective 2 of Australia’s Timor-Leste Aid Investment Plan: enhancing human development. Improved human development will ensure that coming generations of Timorese people are better able to lead, contribute to and benefit from their nation’s economic and social development.

The Position

The Partnership for Human Development (PHD) is collaborating with the Timorese government, local authorities, and civil society partners to work with communities, to achieve two categories of sanitation improvement as specified in the Timor-Leste National Basic Sanitation Policy:

1. ‘Open Defecation Free’ (ODF) Sucos: excreta-free open spaces, drains, water bodies and institutional buildings

2. Hygienic Sucos: 100% coverage of hygienic toilets and handwashing stations with soap; universal safe disposal of infant and child faeces

Based on learnings from the ODF Bobonaro Initiative, the National Community Development Consultant will lead the review and development of ‘institutional triggering’ processes, to ensure that critical sanitation history and norms are captured and that the process effectively mobilizes community leaders to action. The Consultant will lead administrative and suco level institutional triggerings, including support and training to partners and municipal leaders, to facilitate discussions on how local authority can lead communities to action to sustainably end open defecation.

The ideal candidate will have high level of skills in community facilitation, preferably in the sanitation sector, with knowledge of service delivery priorities and challenges, and experience of effecting change in service delivery in Timor-Leste.
