Title: Consultancy - WASH Global Strategic Review

In 2022, NRC will develop new global strategies for both the Shelter and WASH Core Competencies (CC) of NRC. This strategic review will aim to assess opportunities, options, and challenges for further development of both CCs, as well as reflect on the representation of and contribution to the new Programme Development Strategy (presently underway). This study is intended to be complementary to the Shelter thematic review and other consolidation exercises conducted by the Global Shelter and WASH Leads during the same timeframe.

Shelter and WASH operations exist in NRC as both standalone CCs but also as combined operations (Shelter/WASH). This is dependent on a number of factors including the history of programmes in country, staffing, finance, response needs etc.

WASH programming is across all 4 operational regions, Central and West Africa, East Africa and Yemen, Middle East and AELA (Asia, Europe, and Latin America).

The primary objective of the Strategic Review is to identify opportunities and constraints of NRC WASH approaches to inform core competency strategy development. This will be achieved through:
  • Reflecting on strategic gaps and challenges in terms of NRC’s global WASH programmes
  • Analysing gaps (and the driving factors of those gaps) of NRC’s global WASH programmes
  • Reflecting on broader benefits of the NRC WASH programmes
  • Reflecting on strategic opportunities and other future directions for the WASH programme
  • Making recommendations on critical issues, strategic areas of focus, and possible new structural or conceptual set up to inform further steps of WASH programme development.
Qualifications of the Consultant

  • Relevant qualifications and experience in WASH. Experience of working with NRC is a plus
  • Demonstrable experience in similar strategic reviews or consultancies
  • The interpersonal skills and ability to collaborate with key persons including the Shelter consultant
  • French language skills desirable.
Application Closing Date
7th February, 2022.
