With funding from the Australian Humanitarian Partnership, a group of partners is working together to implement a Pacific Cash Preparedness program. This partnership includes Save the Children, Oxfam, the World Food Programme, CARE, World Vision and Live & Learn. The objective is to improve country-level cash preparedness to enable faster, more efficient and effective emergency cash and voucher assistance.
To assess the access to, appropriateness and acceptance of cash transfers and vouchers as a means of humanitarian assistance, studies are being conducted across various regions in the Pacific. In the Solomon Islands, field-based data collection is underway, involving interviews and community focus groups with households, small vendors and shopkeepers.
To explore how, and through what channels, cash grants or vouchers can be delivered to people affected by disasters in Solomon Islands, a private sector capacity assessment will also be conducted, involving interviews with key private sector stakeholders. The interview results will be analysed with key recommendations developed in the form of a written report.
The results of these two assessments will need to be collated with findings and recommendations developed and presented in the form of a Solomon Islands Cash Feasibility Study report. The report will be used to inform decisions on cash operational preparedness and response initiatives of relevant local humanitarian actors.
We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.
In this short-term consulting assignment (up to 25 days, between 18 November 2019 and 15 January 2020), you will develop a contextualised and easy-to-understand final report documenting the findings and recommendations of the Solomon Islands cash feasibility assessments, including a stand-alone executive summary, background, methodology, results, recommendations and summary.
Save the Children Australia is a child-safe organisation. All consultants are required to undergo an International / National Police Check, a Working with Children Check where necessary, and sign our Child Safeguarding Policy and Code of Conduct.
