Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.In emergencies, WFP gets food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help communities rebuild their shattered lives. On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 83 countries each year. The organization has the global footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary to provide access to nutritious food and contribute to the lasting solutions, especially in many of the world's most remote and fragile areas.WFP has been presented in Myanmar since 1994 and is now focusing on helping the Government reach its national Zero Hunger Challenge by 2025. WFP's work in the country is guided by three priorities: emergency preparedness and response; nutrition; and provision of social safety nets.The Myanmar CSP 2018-2022 approved by the WFP Executive Board in November 2017 and it aims to contribute to three Strategic Outcomes that are aligned to four Strategic Results of SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for Development). A total of eight Activities are planned to be implemented to achieve the contributions to the three Strategic Outcomes. Under the Integrated Road Map (IRM) WFP has committed to a new way of working, linking not only all activities to the defined Strategic Outcomes, but also linking the resources used for implementing the activities to the results achieved.The three strategic outcomes are: SO1: Crisis-affected people in food insecure areas meet their food and nutrition needs all year round. Lifesaving food andddd/or cash will be provided to women, men, girls and boys affected by natural disasters, armed conflict and inter-communal violence.SO 2: 'Vulnerable people in states and regions with high food insecurity and/or malnutrition have access to food all year round.' WFP will provide food/cash assistance to vulnerable populations, while providing technical assistance to support the government in strengthening its social protection programmes, food systems and emergency preparedness capacity.SO 3: 'Children under 5 in Myanmar have improved nutrition in line with national targets by 2022.' WFP will contribute to increasing the availability and access to safe and nutritious food for vulnerable and affected populations in crisis and non-crisis situations to enhance their nutrition and resilience. WFP will also support the government in implementing national nutrition.ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXTThis post is located at WFP Office in Nay Pyi Taw.At this level, job holders are responsible for technical work including the planning, implementation and co-ordination of activities that require thorough understanding of programme/project context, issues and ability to apply a range of guidelines/practices.

National Consultant_ to support the collection of costing data and financial information for Budget Brief under the MS-NPAN (Multi-Sectoral National Plan of Action on Nutrition) (Open to Myan
Unicef (Non-profit organization management)
Yangon Negotiable
Consultancy vacancy in Health & Nutrition section. Interested and relevant Myanmar National Applicants are opened to apply.UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.And we never give up.For every child, HOPEBackground:The MS-NPAN was developed through intensive engagement with four sectors (Ministry of Health and Sports, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement) and other key stakeholders, under the direction of the National Nutrition Centre (NNC) and a Task Force of international and national experts. The plan includes 16 outcomes and 71 interventions across the four Ministries. UNICEF, along with other partners of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) network, are supporting Ministry of Health and Sports (MOHS), National Nutrition Centre (NNC), in implementing the new MS-NPAN (2020-2025). Early stages of implementation, which are about to be initiated within the COVID context, involve sub-national planning, prioritization, and costing, which will guide the scale-up of nutrition activities over the coming years. The plan development work has been completed in the Cohort 1 states, namely Ayayerwady, Kayah, Kayin, Chin and Shan (South). The remaining cohort one states where the planning work was stalled by COVID 19 lock downs include Kachin, Rakhine, Shan (North) and Shan (East). The Costing work has already started in those states and one region where the plans have been completed and will be continued as the plans become available for the remaining states. Costing of the plans is inevitably critical for informing a sustainable resource mobilization strategy to ensure adequate allocation of resources at national and sub-national levels.MOHS/NNC and the members of the MS-NPAN taskforce supported by partners have requested UNICEF to support one international and national Consultant for costing and Budget Brief on Nutrition. The Budget Brief is an execercise that will serve as a “stocktake” or proxy baseline for current public expenditure in Nutrition. This Budget Brief is timely considering the early stage of MS-NPAN implementation and can serve as a benchmark for tracking resource allocation to nutrition over the coming years. UNICEF recruited them in early 2020, and the process is ongoing. However, due to the COVID-19, interviews with national and sub national sectoral focal individuals can be done only through virtual meetings due to COVID 19 imposed restrictions. Inevitably, such meetings are labor intensive and take longer than face to face meetings. Frequent follow-up. calls are required for data verification. That shifts beyond the previously committed timeline and need more human resources to meet the timeframe set by the MOHS/NNC. Due to additional efforts required for the successful undertaking of the virtual interviews, the MoHS/NNC and MS-NPAN taskforce recommended the need for one additional part-time national Consultant (total 20 days for four months) to support collection of data required for costing as well as for conducting a budget analysis.Objectives of the consultancy:The purpose of a national consultant is to 1) support the national costing consultant in costing of sub-national planning under the MS-NPAN, and 2) support the international costing consultant to identify the current public expenditure in Nutrition through producing a ‘Budget Brief’ on Nutrition.
