COVID-19 and TC Harold Response Program for AHP Vanuatu Consortium

  • Short term consultancy assignment
  • Commencing October 2021
  • Remote working role (WFH) with or without Vanuatu-based team, OR Port Vila, Vanuatu based

About the project

The Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) consortium in Vanuatu, is a five-year (2017-2022) partnership between Australian Government and Australian NGOs, who implement disaster response and disaster preparedness programs through local counterparts.

The AHP Consortium in Vanuatu consists of Action Aid (implementing partner for Plan International), CAN DO (the implementing partner for Caritas Australia), CARE, Oxfam, Save the Children and World Vision. Save the Children is the Vanuatu country coordinator for the AHP Consortium and provides partnership coordination, MEAL, and communications support to all partners.

The program is targeting 5 of Vanuatu's 6 provinces: Malampa, Penama, Sanma, Shefa and Tafea. It is estimated by the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) that 159,474 people in these provinces were impacted by TC Harold and up to 248,000 people across Vanuatu are affected by the economic impact of COVID-19[1]. AHP Partners have projected to reach 56,887 people (26,204 men and 30,683 women) in WASH, Food Security and Livelihoods, Health and Protection related activities.

The AHP COVID-19 Phase 2 program is responding to the compounding effects of both COVID-19 and Tropical Cyclone Harold on the food and economic insecurity faced by households across the country and the risk that economic and other stress may result in increased violence towards women and children. Five of the six AHP Consortium members are implementing activities under this program: Action Aid, CAN DO, CARE, Save the Children and World Vision.

The program commenced in September 2020 and will finish in March 2022. Total funding for all partners is $4 million AUD.
