Duty Station: Amman
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, Health.
The demands on UNICEF to respond to large scale crisis in all regions has never been greater. There is a trend towards increasingly complex crises, where conflict and climate threats exacerbate underlying vulnerabilities in health, water, food and other systems. The result is a greater number of countries experiencing protracted food and nutrition insecurity, and high levels of malnutrition in children and women.
These demands are even greater in the MENA region - with multiple ongoing humanitarian crises, including an L3-level response in Syria. The capacity of UNICEF MENA country offices to support the Nutrition Cluster and nutrition in emergency programme response is limited. With MENA regional office being the first port of providing technical and surge support to the Nutrition in Emergencies response of the UNICEF country office, a need for dedicated full-time staff is critical.
To deliver the minimum actions and standards defined in UNICEF’s Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action, structural support for NiE at MENARO, and expansion of timely nutrition support to COs responding to a crisis is urgently required.
