Job Title: Logistics Manager
Code: SR-41-2145
Duty station: Juba and Ezo
Starting date: 1/04/2022
Contract duration: 6 months
Reporting to: Head of Mission
Supervision of: to be defined
Dependents: Non-family duty station

General context of the project
In 2020, across South Sudan, about two-thirds of the country’s population (7.5 million) remain in need of humanitarian assistance. In the last years, the situation has become even harder since humanitarian funding has significantly decreased, making the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan a forgotten one.
The severity of the crisis is deepened by the consequences of COVID19. The health situation has been particularly worrying for IDP living in closed sites known as PoC sites given the poor conditions of the sites including overcrowdedness, poor hygiene, lack of safe drinking water, clean latrines, and hygiene kits. Beyond the health consequences related to the virus, restrictive measures including the closure of borders, limited movement across states and closure of basic services have severely impacted the most vulnerable people, particularly in terms of food security and nutrition. South Sudan had 61 percent of its population in a state of food crisis (IPC +3) in 2019. In september 2020, the floods have put and additional strain on food security, projections expecting at least 30% of the country (particularly in Upper Nile and Jonglei) to pass to a state of acute food crisis (IPC+4). Additionnaly, the disruption of COVID-19 will likely result in disruption of health and nutrition services. This has hinghtened the risk of death for more than 292,000 childrensuffering from severe acute malnutrition this year and might increase the number of children suffering from moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) that previsions, prior to COVID19, estimated at already 1 million children.
