WEWORLD – WASH Officer – Palestina

WeWorld sta selezionando un/a WASH Officer oPt da inserire nella sua operatività in Palestina . Durata 3 mesi. Scadenza candidature 21/09/2022

Position: WASH Officer oPt

Reporting Relationship: Head of Operations

Location: Ramallah and Jerusalem, with frequent travels in the oPt

Type of contract: a first 3 (three) month collaboration contract subject to verification of the achievement of specific objectives (these objectives will be agreed together with the Line Manager upon arrival on assignment); a second collaboration contract of 9 (nine) months renewable, following the positive evaluation of the first three months of contract.

Deadline: 21/09/2022

Starting date: ASAP

Gross Salary: to be defined according to the candidate’s profile

Working context

The distinctive characteristics and drivers of the humanitarian crisis in the oPt remain directly related to the impact of prolonged belligerent occupation, now in its fifty third year. A protection crisis persists, driven by the systematic denial of Palestinian rights, structural barriers to Palestinian development, conflict and lack of accountability for violations of international law, which in turn result in chronic humanitarian needs and dependence on relief. In the West Bank, 881,000 Palestinians are in need of protection (oPt Humanitarian Response Strategy 2018-2020) due to recurrent violations of IHL and IHRL. In Area C, East Jerusalem and H2 Hebron – the areas of focus of the Consortium – a coercive environment prevails, which encourages the non-consensual displacement of Palestinians from their homes and lands, in contravention with international law. This coercive environment is generated through push factors that lead to forcible transfer, including demolitions, settler and military violence and harassment, as well as restrictions on movement and access to resources, basic services and humanitarian assistance.
