Au sujet de Partenariat Afrique Canada (PAC)
Partenariat Afrique Canada (PAC) est un chef de file mondial en matière d’élaboration d’approches novatrices pour renforcer la gouvernance des ressources naturelles dans les régions à haut risque et en situation de conflit. Depuis 30 ans, PAC collabore avec des partenaires afin de favoriser le dialogue sur les politiques et des solutions en faveur d’un développement durable.
Les piliers de travail de PAC sont les suivants :
· PAC enquête et fait rapport sur le manque de reddition de comptes, la piètre gouvernance et les violations des droits de la personne associés aux minéraux de conflit.
· PAC élabore et met en œuvre des solutions, en collaboration avec des partenaires locaux, pour améliorer la gouvernance des ressources naturelles, y compris la certification des minéraux de conflit et les chaînes d’approvisionnement propres.
· PAC fait du renforcement des capacités et offre de l’assistance technique pour favoriser la transparence dans le secteur minier, notamment grâce à l’élaboration de lignes directrices pour l’industrie.
· PAC met de l’avant des politiques et des programmes qui appuient l’égalité entre les sexes et l’entrepreneuriat féminin dans le secteur de l’exploitation minière artisanale.
En 2003, PAC a été mis en nomination conjointement pour le prix Nobel de la paix pour son travail visant à mettre un terme au commerce des diamants de conflit et pour ses efforts en vue d’aider à mettre en place le système de certification des diamants du Processus de Kimberley. PAC collabore étroitement avec des initiatives régionales et internationales, y compris l’Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques et la Conférence internationale sur la région des Grands Lacs.
Au sujet du Programme des Grands Lacs et du projet Or juste
Le Programme des Grands Lacs de Partenariat Afrique Canada a vu le jour en 2010 lorsque l’organisme, tirant parti de son expertise dans le domaine des diamants de conflit, a proposé à la Conférence internationale sur la région des Grands Lacs (CIRGL) un mécanisme régional de certification pour les minéraux de conflit. PAC a aussi participé à la rédaction du Guide OCDE sur le devoir de diligence pour des chaînes d’approvisionnement responsables en minerais provenant de zones de conflit ou à haut risque. Aujourd’hui, le programme intervient auprès de multiples parties intéressées pour appuyer la mise en œuvre du Mécanisme régional de certification ainsi que de nombreux autres outils adoptés par la CIRGL pour mettre un terme au commerce des diamants de conflit — notamment une base de données régionale pour suivre le flux des minéraux et appuyer l’officialisation de l’exploitation minière artisanale de l’or.
Le projet Or juste, faisant partie du programme des Grands Lacs, vise à ce que de l’or licite, traçable et libre de conflit en provenance de sites d’exploitation minière artisanale en République démocratique du Congo (RDC) soit vendu sur les marchés internationaux. Ce projet incite les mineurs du secteur aurifère artisanal à acheminer leur produit à des exportateurs légitimes — et, en fin de compte, à des consommateurs responsables — en proposant aux mineurs de l’assistance technique en échange de ventes légales. PAC enseigne aux mineurs des techniques d’exploitation améliorées et on leur propose d’utiliser l’équipement du projet Or juste; en échange, tout l’or produit doit être suivi et vendu par l’entremise de voies légales. Le programme d’assistance technique Or juste fait une grande place à la mise en œuvre de mesures de sécurité et d’atténuation des incidences environnementales sur le site minier, en se fondant sur les recommandations des évaluations de l’impact sur l’environnement.
Dans le modèle actuel mis à l’essai, la Maison d’achat modèle agit comme conduit légal pour l’or artisanal de la RDC en achetant celui-ci à des prix concurrentiels et en le vendant à un exportateur légitime associé (le comptoir).
De par sa conception, le projet assurera sa viabilité financière : la marge de profit tirée des ventes d’or servira à payer les frais d’exploitation, la traçabilité et l’entretien continu de l’équipement du projet. Un pourcentage du profit est investi dans un fonds de développement communautaire géré à l’échelon local. Ce fonds a pour objectif de promouvoir la gouvernance locale des ressources naturelles et de faire profiter tous les membres de la communauté des bénéfices tirés de ces ressources.
Le projet Or juste fait une grande place à la mise en œuvre de mesures de sécurité et d’atténuation des incidences environnementales sur le site minier et mène des activités de sensibilisation et d’éducation qui améliorent la compréhension des droits des femmes et renforcent leur droit d’avoir accès aux ressources, de les contrôler et d’en profiter. Le projet est déjà avancé : il est pleinement opérationnel en Ituri; dans le Sud Kivu, les travaux préparatoires sont en cours. Le Programme des Grands Lacs est établi à Ottawa et possède des bureaux à Kampala (Ouganda), Kinshasa, Bunia, Mambasa (Ituri, République démocratique du Congo) et Bukavu (Sud-Kivu, République démocratique du Congo).

Logistician End Use Checker Consultant

UNICEF Zimbabwe is inviting proposals from individual national consultants for provision ofemergency Logistical support in implementation of the integrated management of acute malnutrition (IMAM) program
Background
Zimbabwe is currently experiencing severe drought resulting from below average rainfall in two consecutive seasons (2014/2015 and 2015/2016). The El Niño weather phenomenon of 2015-2016 has negatively impacted the agricultural season resulting in a protracted food and nutrition insecurity situation. Diminished labor opportunities in agriculture and related industries are further eroding income, rendering food prohibitively expensive among poorer households and promoting negative coping strategies. The limited livelihood options, unfavorable geo-political environment and poor food production have further exacerbated the situation. Latest results of the lean season rapid assessment (ZIMVAC May 2016) project the rural food security insecurity during the peak hunger period (January to March 2017) to reach 42% (4.1 million people), the highest prevalence estimated since 2009. In May, Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) was 4.4%, a decline from 5.7% observed in the January ZimVAC rapid assessment. Indications from the May assessment were that there is a progressive increase in the proportion of food insecure households as the consumption year nears the peak hunger period. Some districts still recorded GAM rates surpassing the global thresholds of 5% (WHO cut-off point for emergency response), with a further 7 districts surpassing the emergency threshold of 2% for Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). In correlation to the overall food insecurity situation, the assessment of January, 2016 projected that there would be an overall increase in severe acute malnutrition (SAM) caseload compared to 2015 data. The Government of Zimbabwe has since declared a state of Drought Disaster, as the rapid ZimVAC assessment revealed that the number of food insecure people had almost doubled from 1.5 million in July 2015 to 2.8 million in February 2016.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has been supporting the Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ) to roll out Community Management of Acute Malnutrition programmes since 2006 and has been gradually increasing the number of facilities treating SAM under the routine programme. The national case load of the children with SAM would be more than 32,258 including the additional case load of 15 highly food insecure districts. Currently, more than 80 per cent of rural health facilities across the country are providing treatment to children with SAM. With support from Food for Peace under USAID, 240 metric tons of Ready to Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) has been made available for the treatment of children with severe acute malnutrition during the emergency period. The Emergency Nutrition Coordination working group of Nutrition Technical Working Group (NTWG) will be used for smooth coordination with partners and ensure regular exchange of information. The existing government supplies and information management systems will be utilized as much as possible for progressive ownership and sustainability of the program. Partners will access supplies through the government channel unless the situation compels to do otherwise.
Purpose
It is with this background that the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Zimbabwe Country Office, is seeking to hire a qualified Logistician-End Use Checker Specialist Consultant to provide logistics support to the 15 targeted districts. The main objective of the assignment is to support the emergency response in the 15 selected vulnerable districts by strengthening and facilitating expansion of supply and logistics using the rapid SMS system for program monitoring, supporting SMART survey.
Objective (s)
Broadly, the project seeks to provide critical lifesaving nutrition treatment care to children under five; with severe acute malnutrition in the 15 most drought affected districts of Zimbabwe. The consultant is expected to accomplish the following;
  • Coordination with national, provincial and districts authorities to strengthen supply logistics system
  • Assist in the timely quantification, forecasting and procurement of RUTF supplies for facility-based management of severe acute malnutrition
  • Ensure proper storage of RUTF commodities are done according to warehouse management organization and stock-keeping procedures, inventory management and record-keeping of stocks
  • Assist with the planning and forecasting of supplies for the Nutrition programme
  • Strengthening monitoring of RUTF supplies using Rapid SMS system for weekly reporting.
  • Support and build capacity of the Nutrition team and other partners to implement a regular logistics monitoring process
    Methodology & Expected Output
    Under supervision of Nutrition Manager, UNICEF and in close collaboration with National Nutrition Department Logistics Officer and Emergency Preparedness Manager as well as the provincial and district health authorities and partnering NGOs, the Logistician consultant will provide logistics support for the IMAM program. The methodologies applied to this consultancy will include but not limited to:
