Search for Common Ground (SFCG) is an international non-profit organization that promotes peaceful resolution of conflict. With headquarters in Washington, DC and a European office in Brussels, Belgium, SFCG’s mission is to transform how individuals, organizations, and governments deal with conflict - away from adversarial approaches and toward cooperative solutions. SFCG seeks to help conflicting parties understand their differences and act on their commonalities. With a total of approximately 600 staff worldwide, SFCG implements projects from 55 offices in 34 countries, including in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States.

The organization is an exciting and rewarding place to work, with a dedicated and enthusiastic staff that is committed to its mission and values. You will be joining a highly motivated staff with a good team spirit and there will be opportunities to grow in the role.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Consultant, Institutional Learning - Baseline Study Consultant

Location:
Niger-Delta, Nigeria

Position Summary
  • As part of startup processes for the project “Sharing the Green Grass: Cultivating a Locally-led Peace Architecture in the Niger Delta”, Search seeks the services of an external consultant to lead a baseline analysis, conflict mapping, and capacities assessment that is planned in Delta State, to determine local conflict dynamics aimed at informing the approach to project activities, including risk mitigation and Do No Harm strategies.
  • This will ensure programming is adapted to respond to the particular needs of people in the target areas, and that the participants selected to engage in project activities include both the farmer and herder leaders in target communities and marginalized groups affected by the conflict, such as women and youth.
The objectives of the assessment are to:
  • Determine current conflict dynamics in the target LGAs including types of conflict, the dynamics and key driving factors for conflict and peace;
  • Identify gender and youth dynamics of the farmer-herder conflict and recommend potential strategies that ensure women and youth are fully represented and substantively engaged on the project, while upholding the principles of Do No Harm;
  • Identify and recommend priority communities in each LGA, based on their unique characteristics;
  • Identify key stakeholders and their capacities to respond to early warning information;
  • Identity potential barriers to peace in communities and recommendations to overcome these;
  • Identify advocacy and policy influencing priorities regarding the farmer-herder conflict in the state;
  • Provide recommendations on Conflict Sensitivity strategies for programming based on findings from the assessment.
  • Provide baseline data for project outcome indicators including:
    • % of target community members interviewed who report reduced violent conflicts between members of other communities
    • % of target groups with increased capacities to promote collaboration between farmer-herder communities
    • % of community members who report creating new, positive relationships with members of the other community
    • % of participants interviewed who demonstrate greater capacities to detect, report, and respond to potential violence
    • % of participants interviewed who report resolving disputes between farmer-herder communities
    • % of target partners, associates, and farmer-herder community members interviewed who feel confident that project-related activities will continue long-term
  • Findings from this assessment will be used to inform programme planning and implementation. As such, clear and actionable recommendations are expected, in light of data collected on site. The report will also be shared widely with project participants and partners, and presented during SFCG Nigeria programs. The assessment report – with sensitive details redacted – will eventually be published on SFCG’s website and shared with other learning networks in order to enhance the broader field of peace-building in Nigeria and the world.
About the Project
  • The overall objective for the project “Sharing the Green Grass: Cultivating a Locally-led Peace Architecture in the Niger Delta” is to strengthen local capacities to peacefully manage conflict and prevent violence from escalating within a locally-led peace architecture in the Niger Delta. The 24-months project, funded by the USAID/CMM, is being implemented in Ethiope East LGA, Isoko North, Ndokwa West and Ughelli North in Delta state, Nigeria. It is supported by two objectives and five expected outcomes:
Objective 1
  • Farmer and herder communities cultivate the skills and relationships to collaborate on peace and security issues.
Expected results:
  • Local partners, civil society organizations, and community members have increased capacity to identify and respond to conflicts.
  • Farmer and herder community members have improved relationships, deeper understanding about each other, and increased trust.
  • Objective 2:  Farmer and herder communities develop effective, sustainable local mechanisms for early warning response, dispute management, and violence mitigation.
Expected results:
  • Local partners and farmer-herder communities develop new mechanisms to identify and respond to early warning signs for potential violence.
  • Farmer and herder communities improve the management and mitigation of disputes in nonviolent mechanisms within and between their communities.
  • Local partners and stakeholders expand ownership over a sustained and scaled peace and community security architecture that includes law enforcement, government, and civil society actors.
  • Local partners and stakeholders expand ownership over a sustained and scaled peace and community security architecture that includes law enforcement, government, and civil society actors. The project is based on the theory that if farmer and pastoralist communities in the Delta have improved understanding and relationships across dividing lines, and locally-owned and sustained mechanisms are developed for conflict prevention and dispute resolution then the risk of intergroup violence will be reduced and norms and institutions favorable towards peace and reconciliation will be reinforced.
  • This proposed theory of change is informed by our “Peace Architecture” approach to bottom-up People-to-People conflict resolution in Nigeria, which focuses on supporting local-level cohesion and community-owned conflict prevention and mitigation, and linking communities with government, security, justice, and other actors where necessary. The project proposes to adapt and strengthen the capacities of local peacebuilding and civil society organizations, as well as key community stakeholders, to build relationships, skills, and sustainable structures that reduce farmer-pastoralist tensions and elevate women and youth perspectives in the Niger Delta, in conflict sensitive ways that adhere to the principles of Do No Harm.
Methodology:
  • The proposed methodology is to be clearly stated in the technical offer, detailing why the methodology is preferred and its relevance to the state, the farmer/herder conflict and purpose of the assessment. In addition, the technical offer should include details on logistics and roll-out of the study: who the target respondents will be and why, how will they be identified or recruited, how data collection and data quality assurance will be carried out, as well as how data analysis will be done.
  • The assessment will target community residents in the locations where the project is being implemented, as well as other prime/affected locations in Delta states, as listed above and as logistically feasible. Tools for the assessment will be developed by the consultant and/ or team in collaboration with Search’s DME staff. The inception and final reports will also be developed by the consultant and/or team with Search’s input. The tools will be administered in the identified communities and the data analyzed by the consultant and/or team chosen to perform this research.

  • Research tools (developed by the candidate and/or team with the input of Search’s DME staff)
