Purpose of the Consultancy
The Trainer will be responsible for working with Search’s RESILAC team to facilitate training on Advocacy and Good Governance for project beneficiaries and stakeholders from the project’s target LGAs – Jere, Monguno, and Kukawa.
About the Project
The overall objective of the RESILAC project is to contribute to the economic recovery and to the strengthening of the resilience and the social cohesion of the territories of the Lake Chad basin most impacted by the Lake Chad crisis and the climate change. The specific objectives of the project are:
Strengthening human capital, social cohesion and collective and sustainable management of natural resources in targeted territories;
Promoting economic recovery in targeted areas and the resilience of the most vulnerable populations, especially young people and women, through access to employment and agro-sylvo-pastoral production systems intensified and adapted to climate change;
Valuing and consolidating the actors of the targeted territories by encouraging dialogue and commitment, and reinforcing their capacities according to the skills and roles of each one; and
Producing useful knowledge for the quality of project activities in a crisis context and for decision-making by local actors.
Search for Common Ground (Search) is responsible for implementation of objective 1 in Borno State, in partnership with Action Against Hunger and Neem Foundation. This will contribute to the creation of the conditions for a broad alliance in these territories by recreating social links between and within the communities most affected by the crisis and by helping victims of violence overcome their traumas and to resume trust. Collective and participatory activities will make it possible to offer means of analysis and shared actions to peacefully manage conflict, access and use of limited natural resources.
The Trainer will follow a methodology and training curriculum agreed upon with Search prior to implementing each of the training which is based on the Common Ground Approach. Each training will engage about 30 participants, targeting the project beneficiaries and stakeholders from the target LGAs of the project. Search’s RESILAC team will provide support to the Trainer to prepare and implement training.
