DURATION: 15th January 2018 to 30th September 2018 (with possibility of extension based on availability of funding and satisfactory of performance)

Background

iMMAP has started program to support the response to the ongoing crisis in Nigeria by strengthening the IM capacity of clusters' members in their response; advance the mechanism for regularly identifying needs of populations and to provide better data to the inter-coordination mechanism led by UN-OCHA. iMMAP will also support information systems strengthening within the clusters/sectors in Nigeria in 2018.

The GBVIMS was created to harmonize data collection by GBV service providers in humanitarian settings and provide a simple system for GBV service providers to collect, store and analyze their data, and to enable the safe and ethical sharing of reported GBV incident data. The intention of the GBVIMS is both to assist service providers to better understand the GBV cases being reported as well as to enable actors to share data internally across project sites and externally with diverse agencies to facilitate broader trends analysis and improved GBV coordination.

UNFPA in collaboration with partners started the roll out of the Gender Based Violence Information Management System (GBVIMS). Before the GBVIMS was created the humanitarian community did not have a common approach to the effective and safe collection, storage, analysis and sharing of GBV-related data. This significantly hampered the use of data generated through service provision to inform programming and impeded the humanitarian community’s capacity to obtain a reliable picture of GBV being reported. The sensitive nature of GBV incident data and concerns by many frontline actors has impacted information-sharing between key stakeholders and GBV coordination. To respond to this need, iMMAP will deploy an international IMO who will serve as GBVIMS Coordinator and will support the GBVIMS and the GBV sub-sector at large.

The purpose of the GBVIMS Coordinator is to provide technical support and guidance to the operations of the GBVIMS in Nigeria.

In addition he/she will support the collation and analysis of monthly GBV service provision data from DGOs and undertake monthly/quarterly/yearly trend analysis for dissemination among DGOs and authorized organizations as is reflected in the Information Sharing Protocol of the GBVIMS operations in Nigeria.
