Humanitarian Outcomes and partners are undertaking a three-year programme of primary and applied research that seeks to contribute to practical solutions for maintaining effective humanitarian response amid high levels of insecurity. The research programme, funded by UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), consists of three phased components:
1) Access – to produce empirical evidence on how insecurity affects the presence and provision of humanitarian assistance to affected populations;
2) Effectiveness – to comparatively assess the practical modalities by which humanitarian actors seek to safely maintain and increase their ability to effectively serve these populations, while adhering to humanitarian principles; and
3) Monitoring – to design a workable framework for monitoring and evaluation of aid programming in insecure environments to help optimise the quality, quantity, and accountability of aid delivery, with minimal negative externalities.
The four case study countries will be Afghanistan, south central Somalia, South Sudan and Syria.
This Terms of Reference outlines the primary tasks and requirements of the researcher who will work under Component 1 in the role of Secure Access Monitor for South Sudan.
