The UNICEF WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) program supports the acceleration of the Government sanitation program, STBM. Furthermore, UNICEF WASH also advocates for adequate WASH facilities (hardware and hygiene promotion) in schools and health facilities. UNICEF provides technical support at National and sub-national level to Government to achieve an open defecation free for Indonesia, and on water quality issues to achieve safe drinking water in homes. In province level, the program supports the respective government offices (Bappeda, Provincial Health Office, and Provincial Education Office) to ensure optimal survival, growth and development of children in Indonesia. The main priority of the sanitation programme is for Indonesia to achieve Universal Access for Sanitation (UAS) by 2019, as stated on Medium Term National Government Development Plan (RPJMN 2015-2019).
To ensure high quality technical support to WASH Programme, UNICEF is aiming to recruit a consultant to link closely with South Sulawesi Provincial Government on the acceleration and consolidation of the WASH Programme and strengthening the strategic linkages across other actors at provincial level as well as linkages to the national and district level. The consultant will provide strategic and technical assistance to the Bappeda, Provincial Health Office (PHO), and other member of Provincial Water and Sanitation Working Group (Pokja AMPL) in South Sulawesi on issues related to the development of a critical evidence base, support to technical writing and publishing of policy briefs, scientific papers etc. The SSA will enhance the role of Provincial Pokja AMPL on supporting its districts in the knowledge sharing, data management, and capacity development. The SSA will also provide the linkage between other water sanitation programs in the province level, i.e. Pamsimas and PPSP. The SSA will support STBM on knowledge management, advocacy, coordination and monitoring & evaluation to achieve the objectives of the Provincial STBM Program.
Knowledge Management is essential if the STBM program is to accelerate –it is critical that the Pokja AMPL captures, develops and shares the best practices from field level implementation of STBM to spread this knowledge but to also place itself as a central point and leader on recognising knowledge from the Districts. In addition, high quality technical briefs may be required to support advocacy on the program and so evidence needs to be well packaged for high level impact, as outlined in the Supply Plan for Output 1.2 and Output 1.3 SSA for KM knowledge base strengthening.
