World Vision Ireland Terms of Reference – Disaster Risk Reduction for Humanitarian Programmes.


With support from Irish Aid World Vision is implementing an education and protection programme in protracted crisis covering four countries Sudan, South Sudan Syria and Somalia.

The three common objectives of the programme are:

  1. Displaced children aged 3-6 are protected and provided with Protection and Psychosocial Support

The impacts of climate change are increasingly evident in these programmes adding additional vulnerabilities to these complex situations. We are now seeking a consultant to support the strengthening of disaster risk reduction within these chronic humanitarian responses.

Scope of Work

As part of ongoing work to increase disaster resilience in target communities, World Vision is seeking a consultant to strengthen the application of Disaster Risk Reduction approach for its chronic humanitarian programmes in Sudan, South Sudan, Somalia and Syria.

The work will involve a detailed review of the HPP Programme with a view to identifying DRR approaches and models which can be successfully integrated with the current programme to complement its existing interventions.

Documents to be reviewed include current programme documents: a. HPP Proposal; b. Quarterly Reports; c. Activity Reports; d. Relevant Policy products. Interviews will be conducted with key Programme staff from each partner country in addition to other relevant partners such as government officials or community representatives.
