IRAM CONSULTANT (DRR)

 

Purpose of the Position: The Philippines ranks as the third most disaster-prone country in the world. With an increasing frequency of extreme weather events, an effective disaster risk reduction system as well as climate change adaptation strategies are crucial. In order to ensure the sustainability of long-term development projects, WVDF has declared Disaster Risk Reduction/Resilience (DRR) as focus area. Thereby WVDF builds on the already established legal framework. Though Philippines has already established legal laws and regulations for effective disaster protection measures, its implementation however, is still inadequate. Particular deficits are at the community level. Citizen Voice and Action (CVA) proved to be a useful tool to facilitate the implementation of community level disaster preparedness measures through citizen participation and networking. WVDF implements CVA in several sectors across the Philippines.

 

Experiences gathered through this project model will be analyzed and integrated into the nationally applied DRR technical programmes of WVDF. This will contribute to mitigate the disastrous effects of yearly occurring typhoons, earthquakes, flooding and volcanic eruptions in our project areas, which severely affect the poorest of the poor and their children.

 

The Disaster Risk Reduction Project will be implemented in 10 villages in Mindanao. These municipalities were selected due to their high vulnerability: typhoons, floods, earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis as well as danger resulting from armed conflicts (Mindanao is a conflict region). The aim of the project is to strengthen the resilience of the vulnerable people in the project area (in the municipalities of Trento and Maasim in Agusan del Sur and Saranggani in Mindanao).

 

Main Objectives

    • To determine whether the proposed project “Disaster Risk Reduction in the Philippines” is relevant and feasible and if the selected approach is effective and efficient, following aspects need to be analysed and verified:
      • Assess alignment of project approach with a) German BMZ disaster risk management concept and b) Philippines disaster risk reduction guidelines
      • Project activities are effective (the activities will lead to the goal, objective and targets)
      • Project means are efficient (most efficient approach to achieve the desired results / cost and time effective): budget analysis and timing, specifically detailing whether using the methods of advocacy and networking, costs such as human resources and travel are sufficient, but not superfluous, outputs can be achieved during the duration of the project, and activities listed are possible to implement
      • Relevant sustainability issues are considered in the project proposal
      • Multi hazard approach? Cooperation with most relevant stakeholders (responsible Government agencies, civil society groups and affected population) is ensured; Transparent and participatory approach to ensure strong involvement of vulnerable target population
      • Project actions are not duplicating but complimentary to other efforts outside of this project
      • Project staff and project partners have the required capacities and skills to effectively implement the activities in such a way that the desired impacts will be achieved
      • Project is likely to build sustainable elements that continue after the project period
      • Major risks, which may be associated are integrated in the project plan
    • Based on the study findings, provide specific and practical recommendations and document lessons to be utilized for project designing and future programming

The moral values of Filipino children and youth are said to be deteriorating over the past years. Increasing incidence of substance abuse, vices, and early pregnancy among youth are household concerns and issues. HIV transmission rate is now considered an “epidemic” among Filipino youth. The country’s ‘war on drugs’ has identified more than thousands of children as “users, pushers, and runners.”

The baseline study seeks to provide information on the following:

 

    • Proportion of boys and girls with good to excellent level of spiritual well being

    • Proportion of parents or caregivers who practice responsible parenthood in nurturing their children's spirituality
    • Proportion of children who experienced support from caregivers and parents in nurturing spirituality of children
