    Positive Planet presentation

    Positive Planet’s mission is to help men and women across the world create the conditions for a better life for future generations. Positive Planet was created out of the growth and transformation of Planet

    Finance, of which the initial mandate, since its creation in 1998, was to fight poverty through the development of microfinance. Over the last 20 years, financial inclusion has evolved considerably. From a series of small initiatives, it has become a large-scale movement offering financial and non-financial services, improving the lives of hundreds of millions of people. Today, the challenge facing us is not so much the pursuance of development as such but its qualitative nature and long-term orientation. It needs to be fair, to promote a healthy environment, to make water and abundant sustainable energy readily available, to ensure access to education and health for everyone, and to procure housing for all. When development achieves these objectives, it allows everyone, and particularly the poorest, to fulfil his/ her potential for the benefit of future generations, which is the very definition of the positive economy.

    Missions and Functions

    Our partner wishes to strategically accelerate the business development of its Mobile Financial Services in Algeria. It particularly aims at offering new products to the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP) as well as the Low Income, Rural, Woman and Entrepreneurs segments. Positive Planet is looking for a Project Manager (Consultant) to lead its team in the field and advise our partner to adapt its services to the targeted market.

    • Coordinate the work of Positive Planet staff on this project in Algeria to support the business development of our partner
    • Conduct market research and local market assessment through the running of qualitative study (focus group, mystery shopping) and engagement with regulating authorities
    • Work with various financial institutions
    • Formulate an operational plan to effectively target the BoP and the Low Income, Rural, Woman and Entrepreneurs’ needs
    • Provide other business advisory services that will enable our partner to develop a strategy and increase its product offer

    Country: South Sudan
    Closing date: 15 Apr 2016

    **Terms of Reference

    Mapping NGO Humanitarian Access in South Sudan

    Database Development and Piloting **

    The NGO Forum is an independent coordinating body comprised of approximately 242 national and 142

    international NGOs. The Forum facilitates the work of its members to address the humanitarian and

    development needs in South Sudan through policy development, advocacy and representation,

    coordination, information management and security analysis.

    The South Sudan NGO Forum is expanding its ability to map and analyze the operational environment

    for NGOs delivering development and humanitarian programs in South Sudan. The Forum seeks a

    consultant to help develop an independent access database designed to assist NGOs efforts to assess and

    analyze the evolving operational landscape, and ultimately to secure and sustain humanitarian access.**1. Purpose and Background**

    The purpose of this temporary consultancy is to develop an independent NGO database on humanitarian

    access and regulatory issues, which may impede the delivery of assistance, in South Sudan. The aim is to

    develop and pilot the database, systematize data collection, reporting tools and analytical products for

    NGOs experience with humanitarian access across South Sudan.

    NGOs face a unique experience in South Sudan. In 2015, NGOs were responsible for the delivery of

    more than 80% of the $1.3 billion in humanitarian response delivered throughout South Sudan. With a

    static presence in almost every county in South Sudan, NGOs experience and navigate the environment

    differently than other humanitarian and development practitioners. However, there is limited data to

    describe the unique environment NGOs operate in or to effectively quantify the financial and

    administrative costs of access impediments and their corresponding impact on program quality and

    effectiveness.**2. Scope of Work**

    The aim of the consultancy will be to produce a humanitarian access database designed to capture the

    forms, agents, dates, locations and other parameters associated with access impediments and regulatory

    constraints (e.g. “bureaucratic impediments”) in South Sudan. The consultant will develop, adapt and

    modify the database structure, format and/or user interface as required, incorporating ideas and

    modifications from the NGO Forum, NGO leadership and other key stakeholders. Accompanying tools

    will require development and finalization to ensure the effective implementation and roll-out of the

    platform, including a document database, a database design description and coding handbook, data

    safety and security protocols, users guide and operational manuals and other documents as need

    determines.

    Final outputs will include:

    • Database platform – the platform should be piloted and tested by populating the platform with

    existing incident data where available.

    • A database codebook, including design description and constraint type definitions, coding

    methodology, and users’ guide.

    • Suite of analytical product templates (e.g. weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual reports),

    incident maps, and other relevant reporting templates, including for example graphs and charts

    demonstrating patterns, trends, numbers etc.

    • Data safety and security protocols

    • Training and capacity building tools, along with final training session for key staff.**3. Location and Travel**

    The consultant will work from Juba and therefore must be available to travel to South Sudan. Some

    elements of the project may be initiated and/or finalized outside of Juba.**4. Qualifications and Experience**

    The applicant must have experience should have a strong NGO background and direct experience related

    to database development and humanitarian access. Ideally the successful candidate will have experience

    in South Sudan or a similar context. Candidates with the following skills and experience will be

    considered:

    • Quantitative analysis skills and/or experience developing databases to map trends; preference

    given to candidates with humanitarian access or conflict trends analysis and database

    development.

    • Minimum 3-5 years work in database design and administration, database management, and data

    analysis. Specific experience can include information management or monitoring and evaluation

    related to humanitarian access, security, human rights or protection.

    • Proven ability to develop rigorous, efficient and innovative data analysis methodologies and data

    management systems.

    • Significant experience in explaining and producing products to illuminate complex data findings

    simply and accessibly, including thoughtful use of graphics and visualizations.

    • Advanced knowledge of Excel, SPSS and/or STATA.

    • Experience in writing user-friendly database design documentation and operating manuals.

    • Proven training skills, with ability to build data analysis capacity of specialists and policy

    generalists alike.

    • Familiarity with humanitarian issues, systems and actors and understanding of a broad range of

    issues affecting NGO operations in complex conflict environments.

    • Strong understanding of humanitarian access in situations of armed conflict and parameters

    affecting access.

    • Willingness to travel to South Sudan.

    • Creative and innovative in developing new ways of accessing and interpreting data; able to

    identify data needs and create and seize opportunities to put ideas into practice.

    • Investigative by nature and persistent in obtaining new information and data. Able to question

    the validity of information and offer ideas and solutions.

    • Excellent interpersonal and networking skills, able to build strong and lasting relationships with

    stakeholders, clients and colleagues.

    • Able to work both independently and collaboratively within and across teams.

    • Fluency in written and spoken English.**5. Duration of Contract**

    The suggested timeline for the consultancy is anywhere from 4-8 weeks, much of it spent in Juba

    working with the South Sudan NGO Forum team.


    How to apply:

    Submit a brief proposal of a work plan, methodology and cost proposal/budget. In addition, submit a CV

    and cover letter detailing applicable experience, along with a analytical writing sample to Lucia
