Programme Associate- SC6

WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.

Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.

ABOUT WFP

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

BACKGROUND

An upsurge of armed clashes that erupted in August 2017 between the Congolese security forces – Forces Armées de la Républic Démocratique du Congo (FARDC) and local militia groups in towns of Pweto, Manono, Mitwaba (Haut Katanga Province) lead to an exodus of refugees into neighboring countries including Zambia. Most people, including women and children who have fled into northern Zambia, have come through the Chiengi border. Those refugee and asylum seekers are currently settled in a temporary transit site in Nchelenge district. The displacement has significantly affected the fleeing populations’ ability to engage in any meaningful livelihoods. Further it has also affected the health and nutrition condition of the fleeing asylum seekers as access to basic services has extremely been hampered.

WFP launched a response emergency operation (IR-EMOP) in the northern part of Zambia (Luapula Pronvince), to address urgent food security and nutrition needs of refugees who are hosted at Kenani Transit Center, but currently being moved to Mantapala Refugee Settlement; both located in Nchelenge District.
