The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in more than 30 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.
Humanitarian crises can affect women, men, girls and boys in radically different ways; changing social and cultural structures, and redefining women’s and men’s statuses – in both positive and negative ways. If humanitarian interventions are not planned with gender dynamics in mind, the needs of those most under threat may not be adequately met, and an opportunity to support positive change will be lost. To address the different impacts of conflict and disasters on men, women, boys and girls and promote the potential for positive transformation of gender norms, humanitarian agencies must analyse, plan, and respond to crises in ways that address practical gender needs and promote the rights of all.
In North Darfur and South Kordofan, NRC plans on implementing a project that project will aim to foster safe, sustainable, and dignified living conditions for displacement-affected communities prone to conflict over natural resources and due to inadequate adaptable and diversified livelihood options resulting in additional barriers in accessing basic services. As part of this intervention, NRC will undertake a gender analysis in the two States aimed at examining the differences in roles and norms for women and men, girls and boys; the different levels of power they hold; their differing needs, constraints, and opportunities; and the impact of these differences in their lives.
NRC is looking for a researcher (or a team of researchers) to conduct; Gender Analysis Consultancy in North Darfur and South Kordofan. The researcher(s) is/are envisaged to be contracted for 7 weeks, the consultant is required to make field visits to North Darfur and South Kordofan (field presence is mandatory).
*If a team of researchers wishes to apply, they should do so by submitting only one combined application.
