Type of Contract: Regular Consultancy / CST
Contract duration: 6 months
Duty Station: Dakar, Senegal (Regional Bureau) / Remote working


The West and Central Africa region is facing multiple crises with a number of hotspots where the deterioration is already causing significant humanitarian impact and others where violence and fragility threaten to cause further displacements, human and livelihood losses and instability.
This is against a well-known backdrop of chronic vulnerabilities, recurring shocks, state fragility and poverty, in particular in the central band of the region.
Notably, insecurity and armed attacks in the Central Sahel have reached unprecedented levels. Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger are facing a massive displacement of people due to conflicts.
The number of violent incidents is spiralling and spreading quickly into new areas.
WFP continues to increase operations in the region and has launched emergency operations (L2) in Mali and CAR, North-East Nigeria remains a Corporate L3 and more recently Central Sahel (September 2019) was also elevated to an L3 given the magnitude of the crisis for a more coordinated approach between the three involved countries (Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger western borders).
In 2021, according to the March 2021 updated analyses, the food security situation continues to deteriorate in most of the Sahelian countries. The spread of violent conflicts in most of the Sahel belt, and the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 further aggravate the situation.
To meet these challenges, WFP Regional Bureau for West and Central Africa (RBD) has strengthened its Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) team with roving field-level support capacity, deployable from RBD, as well as key expert positions on Humanitarian Policy, Conflict Sensitivity programming, Humanitarian-Military Interaction, and Climate Risk Financing.
