Humanitarian situation

PUI is implementing multi-sectorial interventions in the oPt, both the West Bank and Gaza Strip, since almost two decades and is recognised as a key player in the sector by the international community. PUI is implementing programs with an integrated approach, underpinned in a protection lens, in order to adequately understand, address, and respond to the populations’ humanitarian needs arising from this protracted crises due the on-going conflict and political status-quo. The current Gaza context remains highly volatile and fragile, quickly impacted by local and international political changes and deeply exposed to socio-economic shocks. It therefore requires important adjustments and anticipation capacities for partners to be able to adequately respond to increasing and changing needs of the Gazan population.

In this context, Action Against Hunger, the Norwegian Refugee Council, and Première Urgence Internationale forming the Gaza Partnership are currently implementing an ECHO funded multi-sectorial intervention in Gaza aiming at enhancing the protection of the targeted vulnerable groups against violations of IHL and IHRL by combining an integrated approach offering: emergency preparedness and response, a multi-layer assistance, and evidence-based humanitarian advocacy. Each agency contributes in a different way towards the partnership integrated protection approach.

The partnership generates a significant volume of important information either collectively or at agency level. Such information generates policy papers, assessments, reports, fact sheets, GIS maps, databases, statistics, etc. Through this position, the Partnership aims at strengthening their analytical capacity and deliverables. Close collaboration with the partners – through the Partnership Steering Committee (PSC), the Partnership Management Team (PMT), the Partnership Advocacy Working Group (AWG), and the Information and M&E Unit (IME), is crucial. The Partnership Meal Data Analyst will be asked to look at the information generated by agencies individually and/or collectively in order to determine how to best shape this information in a way that is useful to all.
