For every child, Innovation
As
explicitly listed in the National Disaster Risk Reduction Strategy
(NDRRS) Tanzania is at risk to disasters due to several vulnerability
factors including geographical position, climate change and weather
variability, assets exposure, increase in population, existence of
unplanned urban settlements and environmental degradation.1 Similarly,
Zanzibar is exposed to many hazards including floods, drought, tropical
cyclones, tsunami, marine accidents, fire, strong winds and epidemics,
all of which have the potential of disrupting the community in terms
social and economic services, ecological, environmental and health.

Despite
the achievements attained following implementation of disaster
management interventions in the country, there have been several
challenges in disaster risk reduction including increase in frequency
and magnitude of disaster events, high likelihood of trans-boundary
disasters, inadequate integration of disaster management issues into
development planning processes, inadequate public engagement and
awareness, lack of comprehensive multi-hazard early warning system and
inadequate use GIS and ICT in DRRM.

How can you make a difference?
UNICEF
is seeking a consultant to conduct a landscaping and requirement
mapping exercise. It is therefore expected that the consultant will
review existing Disaster Management systems and status of IT
infrastructure within the relevant Government Disaster management and
emergency response organizations both in Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar.
Additionally, while mapping existing systems and infrastructure, the
consultant will be expected to create a requirement document for an
