Must read


Regional Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Adviser Central&West Africa


The NRC Central and West Africa Region (CWARO) includes operations in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Niger, and Nigeria. Operations have also recently started in Chad to assist people affected by the conflict in Sudan. All countries are experiencing a deterioration of the security situation, increasing humanitarian needs and displacements due to conflict. Aid workers continue to be affected by security incidents across the region. Shrinking humanitarian space also places aid workers at a greater risk. The expansion of areas controlled by NSAG and challenged application of International Humanitarian Law by state security forces contributes to risks faced by communities as well as NRC’s staff.

Located in Dakar, Senegal, the Central and West Africa Regional Office (CWARO) oversees the country programmes in the region and provides strategic guidance and oversight across core programme, advocacy and support functions.

NRC’s programmes and advocacy support families affected by conflict and displacement in – Education, Livelihoods and Food Security, Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA), Protection from Violence, Shelter and Settlements, and WASH. The Regional Programme Department, based in Dakar and managed by the Regional Programme Director, is responsible for the strategic development of NRC programming in the region by maximizing the support to and the development of Country Offices (COs) as well as by exploring and creating synergies among COs. The Regional Programme Department is focused on guidance & procedures, evidence and learning, capacity building, programme quality and donor relations.

The CWARO is looking for a solid Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Adviser to support COs and regional team and improve evidence-based decision-making and programme design.
