Position Title:         Consultant – Pacific M&E and Adaptation Advisor
Location:                Flexible, with availability to travel to Fiji
Duration:                2 months (March - April) 
Total Days             15 days (spread over the time frame)
Reporting to:          Pacific Projects Manager 

We are currently seeking an experienced Monitoring and Evaluation and Adaptation consultant. The overall objective of this consultancy is to inform the design of a MEL framework including a set of monitoring tools and processes based upon adaptive learning principles for a programme of work climate change and conflict in the Pacific.

Conciliation Resources has worked in the Pacific region since 1994. Currently there are three components to the Pacific Programme: 1) A small governance-related programme in Fiji; 2) a regional program which works with peacebuilding partners across the region to share different practices and approaches; 3) A significant programme of work in Bougainville and emerging work in the highlands region of Papua New Guinea. 

Under the Pacific regional programme, Conciliation Resources is embarking on a new area of peacebuilding to address growing social, political and environmental conflict risks associated with climate change. Our project seeks to build peaceful communities so that they are able to prevent, mitigate and resolve conflicts arising from climate and environmental change and other interconnected conflict drivers, particularly, in those communities facing relocation.

The project will work in four areas: 1) to conduct research which engages with community perspectives on environment, settlement, change and relocation; 2) the development of conflict analysis and peacebuilding resources to assist communities to prepare for their own futures; 3) work with communities to support conflict sensitive climate change adaptation including relocation; 4) inform national and international thinking through sharing project process and outcome learning in relevant policy debates.

  • Experience and knowledge of the Pacific region, and in particular, experience of working at community level (essential)
