    Présentation de Triangle G H

    "Acteur d'une solidarité durable et partagée"

    Créée en 1994, Triangle G H, association française de solidarité internationale basée à Lyon, élabore et met en œuvre des programmes d'urgence, de réhabilitation et de développement dans les domaines de l'eau, de l'hygiène et de l'assainissement, du génie civil, de la sécurité alimentaire et du développement rural, du socio-éducatif et du psychosocial. Triangle G H travaille actuellement dans 10 pays d’Afrique, d’Asie et du Moyen-Orient.

    Contexte

    La République centrafricaine (RCA) est l'un des pays les plus pauvres du monde, connaissant actuellement la crise humanitaire la plus grave depuis son indépendance en 1960. Cette situation est en partie la cause, mais aussi la conséquence, de la faiblesse de l’Etat et de l’instabilité politique chronique, souvent à base ethnique, qui secouent régulièrement le pays.

    Depuis mars 2013, les changements successifs de régime ont contribué à une escalade des violences intercommunautaires en RCA, multipliant les violations des droits de l'homme, les déplacements massifs de population, la destruction de biens et la perte des moyens de subsistance pour la population.

    Les Nations-Unies ont déclaré la crise au niveau 3, le plus haut niveau de catastrophe humanitaire.

    La RCA compte aujourd’hui plus de 2,7 millions de personnes ayant besoin d’assistance, soit quasiment la moitié de la population globale. Les besoins prioritaires regroupent la nourriture, les soins de santé, l'eau, l'assainissement et l'hygiène, les abris mais également les articles ménagers de première nécessité.

    Le bilan, début d’année 2015, est préoccupant : selon les Nations-Unies, 436 120 personnes seraient déplacées dont 178 483 réparties sur 34 sites à Bangui. 457 480 auraient par ailleurs rejoint les pays voisins depuis décembre 2013.

    En dépit de l’opération Sangaris de l’armée française et de la présence renforcée de troupes régionales dans le cadre de la Mission Internationale de Soutien à la Centrafrique (MISCA), les violences à caractère communautaire se poursuivent. Le déploiement d’une mission de maintien de la paix (MINUSCA) pour prendre le relais de la MISCA a débuté le 15 septembre 2014 (résolution 2149 du Conseil de Sécurité). Catherine Samba-Panza, l’ancienne maire de Bangui et actuelle Présidente du Conseil National de Transition, doit piloter la transition jusqu’aux élections, prévues pour la fin de l’année 2015.

    Présentation de la mission

    Triangle G H a débuté son action en RCA en 2007 pour soutenir les personnes affectées par le conflit qui agitait alors le nord du pays. L’arrivée de réfugiés soudanais dans la haute-Kotto, préfecture voisine, a suscité le développement des opérations de Triangle G H dans cette zone. En Vakaga comme à Sam Ouandja, Triangle G H est intervenu dans les secteurs de la sécurité alimentaire, de l’eau, hygiène et l’assainissement, ainsi que de l’éducation.

    L’association reste l’une des deux seules organisations présentes de manière continue dans cette région marginalisée et excentrée. L’organisation prévoit d’étendre ses activités dans le courant de l’année 2015, notamment à travers un projet financé par le CHF (Common Humanitarian Fund) dans le secteur de l’Education.

    Triangle G H est également présente dans la préfecture de la Ouaka depuis 2011. Acteur humanitaire majeur dans cette région, l’association met en œuvre trois projets de développement dans les secteurs du développement rural, de l'eau, de l'hygiène et l'assainissement et de l'éducation. En lien avec la crise actuelle, Triangle G H a étendu ses activités et a développé des projets d’urgence, sur les secteurs de la WASH et de la sécurité alimentaire. Ces activités sont mises en œuvre dans la ville de Bambari, dans l’ensemble des camps de déplacés autour de Bambari, ainsi que dans les zones rurales autour, sur l’ensemble des axes partant de Bambari, et dans les villes de Grimari et Ngakobo. Pour 2015, deux nouveaux projets financés par ECHO et le CHF permettront de poursuivre les activités Wash dans la zone à travers la réhabilitation des puits sur les sites et en ville, mais également d’établir une enquête sur les intentions de retours des populations déplacées. De plus, un projet soutenu par le PAM a été lancé au mois de mai 2015 et vise principalement la protection des semences sur les axes auprès de 5000 ménages ruraux vulnérables dans la sous-préfecture de Bambari, et la distribution de vivres auprès de 2400 ménages sur le site de déplacés de Ngakobo.

    A Bangui, l’organisation intervient dans le secteur de la protection, à travers un projet de prise en charge des enfants de la rue, en contribuant au renforcement des capacités d’un réseau d’associations locales spécialisées dans l’accueil et l’accompagnement de ces enfants et de la mise en circulation quotidienne d’une antenne mobile dans certains arrondissements de la ville. Triangle G H a pour objectif de poursuivre et développer ces activités tout au long de l’année 2015, notamment à travers un projet de distribution de vivres PAM visant 16 institutions pour enfants. Le dispositif d’antenne mobile soutenu par UNICEF sera également prolongé sur 12 mois et permettra la continuité des activités en faveur des enfants de la rue de Bangui.

    La mission est financée à hauteur de 4 millions d’Euros par différents bailleurs de fonds, dont les principaux sont ECHO, UNICEF, le Centre de Crise, l’Ambassade de France, le CHF, le PAM, EuropeAid, l’AFD, le CIAA.

    L’équipe actuelle est composée d’une quinzaine de personnels expatriés et 86 personnels nationaux, répartis sur les différentes bases opérationnelles (20 sur Bangui, 51 sur Bambari et Grimari, 15 pour Tiringoulou et Birao).

    The International Potato Center (CIP) seeks a dynamic Project Coordinator to lead an ambitious project to build food resilience through root and tuber crops in upland and coastal communities of the Asia-Pacific. The project is known as FoodSTART+. This is a three-year project funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), with financial contributions from both IFAD and the European Union.

    Working with CIP’s key CGIAR partner in the project - the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) - the project coordinator will facilitate creative partnerships with IFAD investment projects in the region and with other public, private and civil society entities to strengthen the contribution of sweetpotato, cassava, potato and other root crops to food security, especially among families living in vulnerable mountain and coastal environments in the region.

    The Center: CIP is a non-profit international agricultural research-for-development organization with a focus on potato, sweet potato, and Andean roots and tubers. Its vision is of roots and tubers improving the lives of the poor. CIP is dedicated to achieving food security, improved well-being, and gender equity for poor people in root and tuber farming and food systems of the developing world. CIP works with partners to contribute high quality science, technology, and capacity strengthening for sustainable science-based solutions. CIP is headquartered in Lima, Peru, with staff and activities in over 30 locations across Asia, Africa, and Latin America. CIP is a member of the CGIAR Consortium, a network of 15 Research Centers and 16 Research Programs mostly located in the developing world and supported by more than 50 donor members.

    The FoodSTART+ project: This three-year project, which follows on and builds from a four year first phase between 2011 and 2015, will work in five core countries in Asia, namely China, India, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam and will undertake exploratory assessments in additional sites in the Pacific. The project aims to assess food vulnerability among poor households with a production and consumption dependence on root and tuber crops (RTCs), and to identify and promote RTC innovations in production, marketing and consumption that enhance food resilience. To achieve this goal at scale and promote RTCs for food security, FoodSTART+ will develop and validate effective partnership strategies with IFAD investment projects, large-scale public sector development initiatives involving national funds and IFAD loans. FoodSTART+ will be implemented with a range of regional and national partners, including the CIAT which has primary responsibility for project activities in Vietnam and Indonesia.

    The position: The project coordinator will be based in Los Banos, Philippines or in one of the other target countries of the project.

    Présentation de Triangle G H
    "Acteur d'une solidarité durable et partagée"
    Créée en 1994, Triangle G H, association française de solidarité internationale basée à Lyon, élabore et met en œuvre des programmes d'urgence, de réhabilitation et de développement dans les domaines de l'eau, de l'hygiène et de l'assainissement, du génie civil, de la sécurité alimentaire et du développement rural, du socio-éducatif et du psychosocial. Triangle G H travaille actuellement dans 10 pays d’Afrique, d’Asie et du Moyen-Orient.

    Contexte
    Considérée comme l’un des pays les plus pauvres au monde, la République centrafricaine (RCA) traverse la crise humanitaire la plus grave depuis son indépendance en 1960. Suite au coup d’Etat du 24 mars 2013, les changements successifs de régime ont contribué à une escalade des violences intercommunautaires, multipliant les violations des droits de l'homme, les déplacements massifs de population, la destruction de biens et la perte des moyens de subsistance pour la population. La RCA compte aujourd’hui plus de 2,7 millions de personnes ayant besoin d’assistance, soit quasiment la moitié de la population globale. En outre, 60% d’entre sont des enfants ou des adolescents.
    Au mois d’octobre 2015, on estime à 454,086 le nombre de personnes réfugiées de la République Centrafricaine, tandis que le nombre de déplacés internes s’élève à 378,425, dont 44 405 seraient déplacés dans les sites de Bangui (UNHCR, UNOCHA). La situation sécuritaire, étroitement liée à l’agenda politique intérieur, notamment au processus électoral des présidentielles, conduit à une détérioration de la situation des enfants dans le pays, déjà affectés par des services de santé limités, des taux de malnutrition infantile alarmants, la fermeture de nombre d’écoles et le recrutement forcé par des groupes armés (UNICEF).
    Faisant face à la volatilité du contexte sécuritaire, la MINUSCA, opération multidimensionnelle des Nations Unies, dont les travaux sont appuyées par les éléments Sangaris, est notamment en de charge de la protection des civils, de la facilitation de l’aide humanitaire et du soutien au processus de transition, à l’approche des élections qui auront lieu à la fin de l’année 2015.

    Présentation de la mission
    Triangle G H a débuté son action en RCA en 2007 pour soutenir les réfugiés du Darfour, dans la préfecture de la Vakaga. Aujourd’hui, l’association intervient en Vakaga dans les secteurs de la sécurité alimentaire, de l’eau, de l’hygiène et de l’assainissement, ainsi que de l’éducation. Triangle G H reste ainsi l’une des deux seules organisations présentes de manière continue dans cette région marginalisée et excentrée.

    Parallèlement, l’association s’impose depuis 2011 comme l’un des acteurs humanitaires majeurs de la préfecture de la Ouaka, où elle mène différents projets dans les secteurs de la sécurité alimentaire et du développement rural, de l'eau, de l'hygiène et l'assainissement (EHA) et de l'éducation. Surtout, elle assure aujourd’hui une assistance d’urgence aux populations déplacées et aux communautés hôtes, dans la ville de Bambari, dans l’ensemble des camps de déplacés autour de Bambari ainsi que dans les villes de Grimari et Ngakobo.
    A Bangui, où le phénomène des enfants des rues (EDR) connait une progression alarmante, les services de l’antenne mobile mis en place depuis 2014 par Triangle G H garantissent aux enfants un accès à des services socio-éducatifs et médicaux de base, et participent au processus de réunification familiale et de placement en famille d’accueil. Triangle G H assure la protection des enfants des rues par la mise en place d’un dispositif de prévention des abus à leur encontre. Parallèlement, l’association intervient dans le secteur de la distribution de vivres, destinés aux institutions pour enfants de Bangui.
    La mission est financée à hauteur de 4 millions d’euros par différents bailleurs de fonds, dont les principaux sont ECHO, UNICEF, le Centre de Crise, l’Ambassade de France, le CHF, le PAM, la FAO, EuropeAid, l’AFD, le CIAA.
    L’équipe actuelle est composée d’une quinzaine de personnels expatriés d’environ 90 personnels nationaux, répartis sur les différentes bases opérationnelles (Bangui, Bambari, Tiringoulou et Birao).

    Projets de sécurité alimentaire actuellement mis en œuvre

    • Projet financé par l’AFD en consortium avec la Croix Rouge française : « Programme intégré de réduction des causes et effets de la malnutrition en faveur des populations vulnérables dans les sous-préfectures de Bambari et Berberati» - budget de 630 000 Euros – Préfecture de la Ouaka.
