Solidarités International recruits 01 FIELD COORDINATOR

 

Desired start date: ASAP
Duration of the mission:  12 months
Location:  Teknaf – Cox’s Bazar District

ABOUT THE MISSION

Humanitarian context in Teknaf:

SI opened its mission in Bangladesh at the end of 2007, following cyclone SIDR.

SI’s intervention and strategy in Bangladesh is to address primary needs of crisis affected people in terms of food security, livelihood, disaster risk reduction (DRR), water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH) and shelter, by making use of an integrated disaster risk reduction approach and by taking into account the effects of climate change, whilst working in parallel on mid-long term resilience strategies.

SI operates through three core stages of intervention, rapid response mechanisms in the aftermath of a disaster or emergency, early recovery/transitional periods and development. In line with the 2019/2020 country strategy, SI is focusing on four key strategic objectives:

  • Responding to the most urgent needs of conflict and disaster affected populations;
  • Strengthening the resilience of vulnerable communities to recurrent shocks;
  • Strengthening communities’ capacities to access resources;
  • Reducing marginalisation through inclusive programming.

 

To this end, SI Bangladesh focuses the crux of its work on the WaSH and FSL sectors with a cross cutting them of integrated protection and resilience.

SECURITY CONTEXT AND LIVING CONDITIONS:

Teknaf is a fisherman town counting more than 150,000 inhabitants and offering minimum services (local restaurants, local shops…) and nice beaches. It is located 2 hours from Cox’s Bazar city. Most of the NGOs working on the Rohingya crisis are located in Cox’s Bazar city; Oxfam, MSF and SI are based in Teknaf.

In Teknaf, expatriates are accommodated in a big new Guest House with minimum standard of living (individual bedroom and bathroom, electricity through generator, running water, cook and cleaner, internet through usb stick). The Guest House is close to the Office.

In Teknaf, expatriates can enjoy some time at the beach or in the market during week end. They also have the possibility to go to Cox’s Bazar city during weekends where they will find western and sea food, and nice restaurants to relax on the beach side. Cox’s Bazar is one of the touristic cities of Bangladesh and easily accessible from Dhaka (half day trip including internal flight).

Teknaf is a very religious and conservative village. The expatriates have to behave respectfully (no alcohol in public places, wearing long and large clothes…). The security situation is relatively quiet even though the arrival of 900 000 refugees in the District increased tension between the refugees and the host communities.
