SSCA Consultancy – CDRR Project
Save the Children Fiji (SC Fiji) is a leading child rights Non-Governmental Organisation working to improve the lives of children. SC Fiji is currently seeking to recruit an individual consultant or a consulting firm to update and validate the School Safety Context Analysis for the Education Sector in Fiji under its Child-Centred Disaster Risk Reduction (CDRR) Project.
The CDRR Project is funded by the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and supported by SC New Zealand. The Project works in 11 target schools and 20 communities focusing on school safety and reducing disaster risks. The School Safety Context Analysis provides a snapshot of the Education Sector for Fiji and is an important component under the project’s national level output.
Two major documents have been produced previously that now require development and updates.
- Education Sector Snapshot for Comprehensive School Safety & Education in Emergencies 2016 to be updated using the more recent School Safety Context Analysis template which requires general update and additional content in response to new appreciation and need for context on CoVID, climate, and conflict and violence.
- The Comprehensive School Safety Roadmap 2017 to be updated in anticipation of the launch of a new phase of the Pacific Consortium for the Advancement of School Safety.
