UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfil their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child,

UNICEF’s Office of Emergency Programmes (EMOPS), Programme Division (PG), and the Division of Data, Analytics, Planning and Monitoring (DAPM) are collaboratively rolling out an initiative called the Child Climate Risk Index – Disaster Risk Model (CCRI-DRM). The CCRI-DRM is a subnational risk model based on the INFORM Subnational methodology, combining data on natural and societal hazard exposure and population deprivation across the sectors in which UNICEF works: Health, Nutrition, Protection, Education, and WASH. In this early phase of the CCRI-DRM initiative, EMOPS is seeking a highly qualified Geospatial Analysis Consultant to work with an HQ-based team to support Country Offices in developing country instances of the CCRI-DRM.

How can you make a difference?

Scope of Work

The consultant will support the CCRI-DRM project team, working closely with the CCRI-DRM Data Lead, in implementing all geospatial analysis components of the CCRI-DRM in countries where the initiative is being implemented. This includes supporting 7 UNICEF Country Offices, in coordination with the HQ CCRI-DRM team and Regional offices, with the following package of geospatial analysis, developing a methodology document, developing global and national hazard exposure layers for multiple hazards, and developing a tool to facilitate non-expert creation of CCRI-DRM indices.

• Overview report of available data sets (country and global, and including metadata) for mapping of natural and human hazards • Report on trial analysis for gaps, suitability • Set of hazard and population exposure indicators deriving from analysis, as needed • Subnational exposure analysis including hazard and population • Support to CO consultations on the construction of hazard and population exposure indicators and validations of results • Updated subnational exposure indicators and analysis based on consultation and validation results • As needed, vulnerability indicator set based on CO-provided data • Maps for each phase to visualize data, including final output maps • All final analysis data provided in a suitable format for addition to UNICEF Data Warehouse/GeoSight
