OBJECTIVE OF THE CONSULTANCY

Context of the consultancy

HI is a unique organization engaged in a comprehensive conflict-sensitive and intersectional approach to armed violence reduction (AVR) that combined interventions from four of the five pillars of mine action and conflict transformation. Populations living in fragile and contaminated environments are affected by multidimensional factors that demand a holistic response; one that HI is well placed to deliver thanks to multiple areas of expertise. Synergies are developed across the organization’s expertise, from AVR to social and economic inclusion, rehabilitation, health, including mental health, protection, civil society engagement to facilitate accountable governance, and Atlas Logistic. Driven by our vision for “people to lead safer and more fulfilling lives in inclusive communities”, our interventions address instruments of violence, as well as short-term effects and long-term consequences through classical humanitarian mine action activities. This includes land release, explosive ordnance risk education, victim assistance and advocacy in the context of the Anti-personnel Mine Ban Treaty and the Convention on Cluster Munitions and the upcoming Political Declaration on Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas. Responding to a surge in the use and casualties of small arms and light weapons (SALW) we also engage in SALW risk education. With the aim to end perpetual cycles of violence, we also address root causes of violence through conflict transformation (CT) interventions.

 

Operationalizing the nexus is complex and requires increased internal and external coordination – leading to joint humanitarian-peace-development approaches, directly contributing to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), up to and beyond Goal 16 concerning peace and security.

 

Based on our field experience, we shape practice and influence policies at the international, national and local level. This, combined with our global advocacy efforts, in turn support our business development efforts.

 

General Objective: This consultancy is created to develop a strategic qualitative analysis of the current fora, platforms, possibly other treaties, partner organizations, and donors we engage in and with, while working on instruments, immediate effects, long term impacts and roots causes of armed violence, as well as potential future ones. A Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis is the preferred tool for this analysis, to inform understanding and decision making necessary to next develop said road map in a participatory manner with the AVR team.

The selected consultant will work closely together with HI’s ARV Business Development Officer and AVR Policy Lead, while also consulting with our EORE, Land release and CT specialists.
