The Nexus Response Mechanism is a programme initiated by the EU aimed at contributing to Myanmar lasting peace and national reconciliation, security, stability and sustainable development without missing humanitarian needs. Its actions are focused on providing support to conflict-affected populations, displaced populations, host communities, and returnees by strengthening the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, linking relief with rehabilitation and development.
Myanmar faces both long-standing complex humanitarian emergencies as well as newly emerging humanitarian needs as a result of its ongoing political crisis and the 2021 military takeover. In some areas, new political dynamics are exacerbating pre-existing tensions and conflict, leading to further displacement of individuals in conflict areas including southeast Myanmar, northern Shan and Kachin States. Urban displacement and economic insecurity are also creating increased vulnerability and needs in urban centers and across central Myanmar, including areas that have not historically been affected by conflict. Pre-existing humanitarian emergencies remain grave, including those faced by Rakhine, Rohingya, Kachin, Karen, Shan and other groups throughout the country.
The Nexus Response Mechanism is responding to these needs through local and international implementing partners providing humanitarian, development and peace support. To ensure the technical proficiency of its response and ensure coordination with other actors, the NRM is seeking a Programme Management Advisor (Humanitarian) that can provide guidance and support for the design, development, implementation and monitoring of the NRM’s programming. The advisor will also take a supporting role in development, organization and implementation of field monitoring visits, virtual and in person for all existing and future partners in NRM project areas, ensuring timely and regular implementation of project activities, effective coordination and cooperation among the different partner and sub-partners, advancing the NRM’s localization agenda, identifying opportunities to incorporate nexus approaches into partners’ programming and, together with partners, establishing success stories, challenges and lessons learned across the NRM’s portfolio.
