UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, a hope

 

Background

The Communication for Development (C4D) section at the UNICEF West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO) provides technical support to 24 country offices in the fields of communication for social and behaviour change for child survival, development, education and protection. The region is extremely complex, diverse and bears a disproportionate share of the global burden of key child rights deprivations. Though home to 11 per cent of the world under 5 (U5) children, it registers 31 per cent of U5 death, 42 per cent of global maternal death, 30 per cent of severe acute malnutrition cases and 36 per cent of the out of school children globally. It also has the lowest rate of girls’ access to education and highest rate of child marriage and teenage pregnancy.

In the last decades, countries have implemented a range of cost-effective and high impact interventions to prevent child and maternal deaths. While these interventions save lives, they are often not enough for long-term sustained impact. No matter how well commodities are distributed or how efficiently services are provided, children continue to die from preventable diseases if their families and communities are not considered as essential partners and fully engaged to increase preventive care at home, demand and effectively use health and other social services, find local solutions to achieve child health, development and protection.

Communication for social and behaviour change (SBC) and application of the principles of effective communication are central to further development objectives in WCAR countries. In recent years, C4D network across the region has facilitated the engagement and participation of parents, caregivers, local organizations and a range of local influencers in support of positive social change in favour of children, provided technical assistance and capacity building to partners, aimed at shifting from a message-oriented to a dialogue approach,  strengthened the use of social data  for quality communication planning and undertaken other important efforts to prompt positive social change for children.

The existing good experiences require being documented, linked and cross-indexed with other knowledge sharing initiatives within and outside of WCAR, shared with the public and donors, and within the C4D network, to enrich knowledge and practices, to demonstrate the results, to facilitate C4D communities of practices, and to promote partnerships.

In this context, UNICEF WCARO is looking for a qualified professional to support the C4D section in documenting a series of innovative and successful experiences and practices in the field of communication for child survival and development, education and protection, including the community engagement initiatives for child and maternal survival and the community engagement initiatives in humanitarian settings.
