In 2021, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) started implementing in Cameroon the project “Promotion of Economic and Social Participation of Internally Displaced Persons and the Host Population” on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project’s target group is Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and vulnerable members of host communities. The project is being implemented in five communities in the West Region: Bafoussam 1er, Foumban, Dschang, Kouoptamo, and Mbouda. PESoP is, until now, based on two interrelated GIZ-implemented activity areas. Activity Area 1 aims to improve the economic participation of the target group through qualification and income-generating measures, such as cash-for-work, support measures for cooperatives, and the establishment and strengthening of MSMEs. The aim is to improve the economic situation of the target group quickly and across the board, especially women. Activity Area 2 aims to enhance social participation and social cohesion between the various target groups. In 2023, GIZ and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) joined forces to expand the ongoing PESoP by adding two new activities: 1) an additional activity area led by UNHCR aiming at producing socio-economic profiling of IDPs and host populations living in 5 municipalities of the West region, including GBV information (Activity Area 3) and 2) an additional output led by GIZ to identify and mitigate GBV in target communities (Activity Area 4). In the context of PESoP, UNHCR will carry out the following: i) the enrollment, in collaboration with the government and local authorities, of all IDPs in five municipalities, estimated between 15,000 and 20,000 IDPs. ii) the socio-economic profiling of a representative sample of IDPs and host community members. The enrollment will mainly collect the biodata of IDPs and GBV information, and UNHCR will work closely with communities to ensure the implementation of a reliable, harmonized, and centralized information and data management system for IDPs in the West Region. These activities aim at providing an overview of IDPs’ and host communities’ Protection (including information on GBV), living conditions, challenges, opportunities, and changes over time. To support the implementation and coordinate related activities of this component of PESoP, UNHCR in Cameroon is now looking for a Data Analyst with a registration background. The data analyst/Registration will work under the general responsibility and direct supervision of the project coordinator. The incumbent will work closely with Programme and Protection colleagues in addition to Senior Management, and UNHCR DIMA Yaounde, as well as with key external project stakeholders, including GIZ, relevant sectoral administrations, INS, BUCREP, BUNEC, decentralized local authorities, grassroots organizations, operational partners, among others.
