Adeso together with other local and national NGOs have come together to form a global network which was launched in May 2016 at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey. The Network, NEAR (Network for Empowered Aid Response), is a movement of local organizations with a bold ambition – to reshape the top-down humanitarian and development system to one that is locally driven and owned, and is built around equitable, dignified and accountable partnerships. The NEAR Network Secretariat is hosted by Adeso in Nairobi, with staff based in various countries.
The Capacity Strengthening Coordinator (CSC) is responsible for developing, coordinating, managing and implementing the NEAR Capacity Strengthening Programme in Asia, Africa and Middle East with a focus on 5 countries. The post-holder will be based in the Nairobi office, but will be expected to travel frequently within Asia, Africa and Middle East region and more specifically to Nepal, South Sudan, Somalia, DRC and Turkey.
The NEAR Network capacity strengthening programme is funded by OFDA and ECHO and works with 25 partners in five countries (Nepal, South Sudan, DRC, Somalia and Turkey). The goal of the programme is to strengthen members’ ability to manage and deliver quality emergency preparedness, response, recovery and resilience programmes. It aims to strengthen organisational capacity of members and raise awareness, commitment and understanding of humanitarian principles and standards across members. The programme focuses on providing in-depth support to a small number of members to develop their leadership, compliance and financial management, communications and fundraising.
