TA CHILD PROTECTION IN EMERGENCIES SPE...T (SGBV), P-3


Job Number: 498300

BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE
The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) Nigeria is seeking the interest of a qualified Child Protection in Emergencies Spe...t in the area of SGBV, with a focus on reintegration of girls and women who have been affected by conflict related sexual violence.

In the course of 2014 and early 2015, Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad (JAS), more commonly as Boko Haram intensified its attacks on the civilian population in Nigeria, with tactics developing from hit-and-run attacks targeting Government officials, security forces, police stations, detention centers, religious figures and schools, to take-and-hold attacks in which JAS managed to establish and maintain control over large swaths of territory. While in late 2015 and 2016 the Nigerian Armed Forces took back most JAS controlled areas, the fighting caused additional mass displacement, especially in Borno State.

Children have been acutely impacted by the conflict. In particular, sexual violence has been a characteristic of the conflict. It is estimated that 7,000 women and girls have suffered conflict related sexual violence, including following abduction by JAS and forced marriage to their fighters. Many girls and women have become pregnant and given birth as a result of the sexual violence. The girls and women, and their children are facing stigma and, in some cases violence, as they return to their communities following escape or rescue by the Nigerian Armed Forces.
