Jobs in Tanzania 2020: New Jobs Vacancies at Save the Children Tanzania 2020
AJIRA TANZANIA 2020 / NAFASI ZA KAZI 2020

Job Title: MDI Climate Change and Child Displacement Consultancy
Climate Change and Child Displacement – TOR
Migration and Displacement Initiative (MDI)
Save the Children International has an exciting consulting opportunity for you.
“Climate change (CC) disproportionally impacts children and young people, who face heightened levels of vulnerability during disasters and situations of displacement[1]”. Anecdotal evident suggests that CC-driven child displacement is a big problem now, and will increase in the future, yet children displaced (or migrating) by CC have typically been overlooked in research, programming & advocacy. There’s a pressing need –and clear opportunity – to respond to this gap.
Recommended:  
As a starting point, SC’s Migration and Displacement Initiative (MDI) is commissioning an introductory, ‘top line’ global research piece on climate driven child migration and displacement to build up Save the Children’s (SC) own knowledge base on the issue – and to inform the wider global debate. The research is perceived primarily as an ‘evidence synthesis, gap mapping, and orientation exercise’ leading to the development of a broader child-focused CC/M&D programming and research agenda. We will review (i) whether (as we suspect) there are any unique child vulnerabilities/impact caused by climate-induced migration & displacement, and if so, (ii) seek to identify the appropriate policy, research and programming responses.
Recommended:
This global overview will synthesise currently available research and evidence on the intersection between climate change-driven migration/displacement and children, further informed by information gathered directly from five SC regions. It will employ a methodology focused on desk-based review, supplemented by illustrative primary research via key informant interviews (KIIs) and focus group discussions with SC FPs across Members and COs and key stakeholders at the international and regional levels. In identifying existing knowledge gaps and opportunities, the report’s recommendations will additionally function as the foundation for an internal SC ‘road map’ for subsequent (and potentially child led) programme, policy, advocacy and research on CC driven child displacement/migration.
