Operational context

In line with global commitments, agreements, strategies and principles on increased interagency collaboration, UNHCR and WFP have created a Joint Programme Excellence and Targeting Hub. The established framework for collaboration provides a strong basis for the two agencies to provide strategic and operational support at country-level, with the objective of improving outcomes for refugees. This will be achieved through a new way of working, ensuring effective use of limited resources by targeting the right people with the right assistance, including support towards longer-term self-reliance.

The team will provide remote and/or in-country support, building on existing structures and capacities.

The Joint Programme Excellency and Targeting Hub is initially set up for one year and with the capacity to support two countries throughout the entire programme cycle, and to provide support on demand for additional four countries using a modular approach (covering selected phases of the programme cycle).
