Description de l'annonce:

Beginning in 2002, BRAC pioneered the Ultra-Poor Graduation Approach in Bangladesh, a comprehensive, time-bound and sequenced set of interventions designed to enable the most vulnerable and destitute households to progress along a pathway out of extreme poverty. BRAC established the Ultra-Poor Graduation Initiative (UPGI) to deliver technical assistance to agents of scale on how to adapt and implement the Graduation Approach and other holistic economic inclusion and social protection strategies. For more than a decade, BRAC has served as a leading provider of global technical assistance and advisory services for the Graduation Approach to governments, multilateral institutions, and NGOs worldwide.


Project Background


"Insertion Économique, Sociale et Solidaire dans le Gouvernorat de Kairouan" (IESS) aims to increase the social, economic and climate resilience of the poorest households in the hills of Kairouan, with a particular focus on women in the Governorate of Kairouan. IESS aims to support 33,600 direct beneficiaries including 16,800 women, i.e. 50% of beneficiaries. In order to break the poverty trap, the poorest and most vulnerable households will be coached and supported through a comprehensive set of interventions: cash transfer through the national social protection; financial inclusion; income generating activities and social empowerment. A specific focus will be put on climate awareness in order to bring to the beneficiaries graduation supports that are fully adaptive to climate change. The approach will support the project in the selection of adequate adaptive activities at household level (i.e. income-generating activities, access to water) in the context of climate change.


Description of Assignment


To support the Government of Tunisia (GOT) in the implementation of IESS, BRAC UPGI is developing an ultra-poor Graduation program that specifically targets women, is adapted to the specific context of Tunisia, and integrates the environmental pillar as an integral program component to strengthen the socio-, economic and environmental resilience of women to climate change, especially those from the poorest households. BRAC UPGI will facilitate IESS start-up and implementation by providing tools and technical support to project staff and partners who will be in charge of implementing the Graduation process.
