VACANCY FOR PROTECTION MONITORS AT CCEPI SOUTHERN BORNO

JOB TITLE: Protection Monitors

LOCATIONS: BORNO(BIU & BAYO)

DURATION: 7month

START DATE: 1ST June, 2017

PROGRAMME BACKGROUND:

Nigeria remains in a humanitarian and protection crisis, requiring protection to be central to the humanitarian response and Government strategy. The conflict in NE (North East) Nigeria has resulted 1.8 million Internally Displaced Persons within NE Nigeria. Many of the displaced are women, children, the elderly and others with specific needs.

 

By November 2016, 164,281 Nigerians returned from Cameroon and Niger to Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States. The situation of returns to Nigeria has also been exacerbated by repeated attacks by Boko Haram against Niger and Cameroon leaving a wake of injured and dead creating an environment of suspicion towards foreigners and migrants and resulting into strong pressure on the asylum space in these countries. Returnees report being subjected to some conditions in the countries of asylum: forced returns, economic hardship, lack of basic assistance, accusations of affiliations with Boko Haram leading to arrests and confiscation of properties. As a result, UNHCR and Government Authorities have witnessed ad hoc and spontaneous returns of Nigerians from Cameroon and Niger. Nigerian authorities have indicated that they are expecting more returnees from the 180,000 refugees in Cameroon, Chad and Niger. This situation calls for comprehensive collection of returnees' information and seamless management of information from the point of arrival. While implementing targeted and timely protection services, it is essential to anchor long term solutions and a strong protective environment, including identifying and reaching all vulnerable groups across the NE, broadening outreach beyond campsites and currently accessible/liberated areas.
