DEMAC Field Coordinator

Dansk Flygtningehjælp

DRC is recruiting a Field Coordinator to roll out implementation in three emergency-prone focus countries and in two countries that will experience a humanitarian emergency with a likely diaspora response. The Field Coordinator will work closely with the DEMAC Platform Coordinator, who has the overall responsibility for DEMAC progressing according to plan and in line with donor agreements

Within the last decades there has been a growing recognition among development and humanitarian actors that the diaspora – people living outside their country of origin – play increasingly important roles in the political, economic, and social lives of the people in their countries of origin through transfer of money, values, skills, and ideas.

For communities and households in countries of origin, relatives in the diaspora constitute an essential safety net in times of humanitarian crisis. Diaspora are first responders and support family, relatives, and communities through increased remittances, through community-based donations, and through diaspora organizations that are in close contact with partners in their countries of origin. However, with the diaspora responses being “intra-community” they are rarely documented or recorded – or even understood and recognized by the conventional humanitarian system. As a result, diaspora humanitarian responses and conventional humanitarian responses are implemented in parallel - leading to overlaps and gaps that could be avoided.

Humanitarian needs continue to increase and there is a need to explore the variety of actors and approaches involved in humanitarian action and ensure better learning and coordination mechanisms between these actors. Against this background, DEMAC aims to establish itself as an institutional platform that will: 1) Document and understand the modalities and extent of diaspora humanitarian interventions; 2) Conduct a series of workshops for diaspora organisations and institutional aid actors to enhance the mutual knowledge; 3) Develop recommendations, resources and tools on means and methods for improved operational and strategic communication and cooperation between diasporas and institutional actors.

Core activities of DEMAC will include:

  • Engagement with the formal humanitarian system in three focus countries to verify local buy-in to explore possible collaboration and coordination with diaspora in emergency responses.
  • Development of standard terms of reference for documentation of impact and outreach of past diaspora emergency responses in three focus countries.
  • Testing of the ToRs in three focus countries and two new emergencies.
  • Based on results from documentation exercises consultations should be held between diaspora and formal humanitarian system on how the system can possibly reflect diaspora emergency responses in assessments and the overall humanitarian program cycle.
  • Results from the documentation exercises should be shared and discussed with diaspora communities for their internal learning and possible coordination.
  • Organizing an international conference for sharing and discussion of lessons learned from in country processes and the way ahead for collaboration and coordination between diaspora humanitarian response and the formal humanitarian system.

The DEMAC platform is currently financed by USAID from June 2020 until June 2022, but aims to continue its existence upon expiry of this finding period. To read more, please visit www.demac.org.
