AJIRA TANZANIA 2019 / NAFASI ZA KAZI 2019

Position: Country Transformation Manager 
The Organization
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Transformation
Plan International’s global strategy, 100 Million Reasons (2017-22) defines Plan International as a progressive international NGO committed to addressing fundamental changes in the countries in which we work, and globally, that advance children’s rights and gender equality.  The strategy takes its name from our ambition to take action so that together we can work with 100 million girls to learn, lead, decide and thrive.  The strategy is ambitious, results focussed and focussed on change. In view of this, Plan International offices are embarking on a structured transformation and change journey.  This will commence in Plan International’s offices in Tanzania and Zambia in 2020.

Plan’s offices in Tanzania and Zambia have worked in partnership for several years, primarily in child protection programming with a focus on ending child marriage.  Recognising the investment required in 2019-20 to develop a vision for the future programmes and advocacy work for both countries, that is ambitious and aligned with Plan International’s global strategy, and the transformation and change management work required, Plan Zambia and Plan Tanzania will work in a partnership for their respective country’s Transformation, including planning, design and execution.  This will be led by both Country Directors with the support of the Country Transformation Manager. This position will be based in either Lusaka or Dar es Salaam, and be line managed by the Country Director of the host country with a matrix reporting line to the other Country Director.

The Country Transformation Manager will work in partnership with the Country Directors of both countries, to lead the planning and design of the Transformation process for both countries (two separate processes), and subsequently to lead, coordinate and facilitate the execution of the plans.

DIMENSIONS OF THE ROLE
The Country Transformation Manager’s role requires working collaboratively with all staff, stakeholders and organisational structures in order to lead PIT and PIZ through the organizational transformation in pursuance of the 100 Million Reasons Global Strategy.

The role is expected to take a lead in designing the change strategies for both countries, assessing stakeholder impacts and organizational readiness, recommending and/or implementing appropriate communication, training, and behavioural change solutions, and measuring effectiveness to enhance organization, group, and individual performance. Throughout the process, strong support will be provided by Plan’s Global Hub’s Transformation Strategy Development Department, by on-site missions and remote support.

Background
UNCDF makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 47 least developed countries. With its capital mandate and instruments, UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development. This last mile is where available resources for development are scarcest; where market failures are most pronounced; and where benefits from national growth tend to leave people excluded. UNCDF provides capital and technical support through Inclusive Finance programmes to ensure that more people gain access to financial services – both formal and informal – that expand opportunities and reduce vulnerabilities. We have expertise in reaching unbanked populations, particularly women and youth, with a focus on savings, as well as in building financial capability through innovative delivery channels.
UNCDF also contributes to women’s economic empowerment by supporting local and international NGOs, government agencies, the private sector, and other stakeholders to design, plan, implement, evaluate, and sustain programmes that consider the specific needs and priorities of poor women as well as advocating for an enabling environment for inclusive local economic development.
The United Republic of Tanzania (Tanzania) currently hosts over 300,000 refugees fleeing civil strife and ethnic conflict in its neighboring countries. Emerging evidence suggests that access to financial services strengthens refugees’ resilience, improves their livelihoods, stimulates consumption, and contributes to local economic development for host communities.
Since mid-2017, UNCDF has led a financial inclusion programme in the Kigoma Region of Tanzania to improve economic self-sufficiency for refugees and those living in the surrounding host communities. Nearly two years after the programme’s inception, UNCDF has made significant strides, beyond what was projected, in achieving these outcomes. Because many formal financial services are not available to project beneficiaries in Kigoma, either because of legal or geographical constraints, the formation and strengthening of savings groups has been part and parcel with improving financial inclusion in this environment. UNCDF partners have formed 408 savings groups, with 10,890 beneficiaries, 64% of whom women. As per April 2019, total deposits accumulated in the groups reached TZS 340 million (USD 148,000), the same amount having been disbursed in the form of loans.

This initiative is part of the Kigoma Joint Programme, which is a leading example of cooperation among government authorities at different levels, UN Agencies, donors and NGO partners.

Background
UNCDF makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 47 least developed countries. With its capital mandate and instruments, UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development. UNCDF’s financing models work through two channels: financial inclusion that expands the opportunities for individuals, households, and small businesses to participate in the local economy, providing them with the tools they need to climb out of poverty and manage their financial lives; and by showing how localized investments — through fiscal decentralization, innovative municipal finance, and structured project finance — can drive public and private funding that underpins local economic expansion and sustainable development. By strengthening how finance works for poor people at the household, small enterprise, and local infrastructure levels, UNCDF contributes to SDG 1 on eradicating poverty and SDG 17 on the means of implementation. By identifying those market segments where innovative financing models can have transformational impact in helping to reach the last mile and address exclusion and inequalities of access, UNCDF contributes to a number of different SDGs.
UNCDF’s Local Climate Adaptive Living (LoCAL) Facility was designed to promote climate change–resilient communities and local economies by establishing a standard, internationally recognized country-based mechanism to channel climate finance to local government authorities in least developed countries. It thus aims to contribute through the local level to country achievement of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals – particularly poverty eradication (SDG 1), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and climate action (SDG 13). LoCAL increases local-level climate change awareness and capacities, integrates climate change adaptation into local government planning and budgeting in a participatory and gender-responsive manner, and increases the financing available to local governments for climate change adaptation. LoCAL combines performance-based climate resilience grants (PBCRGs) – which ensure programming and verification of climate change expenditures at the local level while offering strong incentives for performance improvements in enhanced resilience – with technical and capacity-building support. It uses a demonstration effect to trigger further flows for local adaptation, including national fiscal transfers and global climate finance for local authorities, through their central governments.
Since its global scale up in 2014, LoCAL has engaged 107 local governments in 14 countries representing over 6 million people. Between 2014 and 2018, it delivered close to USD 17 million, with grants and technical assistance to countries totaling USD 11.9 million. During the same period, 637 climate change adaptation interventions were financed across 11 countries using LoCAL grants, mostly infrastructure investments (i.e. 64 per cent of total).
