I. Position Information

Position Title: Consultant – Durable Water and Sanitation Solutions (WASH)

Duty station: Bentiu, South Sudan (50%) and Malakal, South Sudan (50%)

Organizational unit: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Unit

Reports directly to: Programme Coordinator (WASH)

Duration : Three months

II. Organizational Context and Scope

IOM in South Sudan has a broad range of programming centred around three broad areas: humanitarian coordination and support; humanitarian response and resilience; and peacebuilding, transition, and development. Humanitarian coordination and support includes leading/co-leading the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) and Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFI) Clusters, Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and management of WASH and Shelter and NFI core-pipelines, humanitarian hubs and common transport services. Humanitarian response and resilience includes CCCM, WASH, Shelter & NFI, health, protection, gender equality and inclusion, mental health and psychosocial support and the management of a Rapid Response Fund. Under peacebuilding, transition and development, IOM South Sudan implements programming on housing, land and violence reduction, community development and migration management.

Under the overall supervision of the Head of Operations and the direct supervision of the Programme Coordinator (WASH), the Durable Water and Sanitation Solutions Consultant will support IOM South Sudan in its efforts to decrease the dependence on humanitarian aid in internally displaced people (IDPs) camps and sites in Bentiu, and Protection of Civilians (PoC) site in Malakal. This goal is to be achieved by identifying feasible, contextualized, safe, cost-efficient, low-maintenance durable water and sanitation solutions for the existing infrastructure, services and governance. A special focus will be exerted on the rehabilitation of existing water and sanitation solutions to serve this goal. A particular emphasis will also be given to solutions which can be operated autonomously and maintained by the public authorities or local service providers, in close coordination with the community. Efforts will be exerted to integrate nature-based, climate-resilient, market-based and circular principles. The Consultant will work in close coordination with the Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) Solutions Expert

III. TANGIBLE AND MEASURABLE OUTPUTS OF THE WORK ASSIGNMENT

The main deliverables of this consultancy will be as it follows:

First deliverable: Two technical reports with an evaluation of the full chain of the water supply system at the IDP camp and sites in Bentiu (1x), and PoC site in Malakal (1x). This will include all infrastructure, service and governance components of the water source and water storage, water treatment and water distribution (pressurization, transport, delivery). The evaluation will include an analysis of how the current system in place is functioning, and its pros and cons, against it’s design and minimum performance, cost-efficiency and quality standards, considering seasonal variations and the reality of flood risks. The evaluation will also include recommendations on how these components should be rehabilitated to ensure feasible, contextualized, safe, cost-efficient, low-maintenance water and sanitation infrastructure, services and governance. A particular emphasis will be given to components which can be operated autonomously and maintained by the public authorities or local service providers, in close coordination with the community. Efforts will be exerted to integrate nature-based, climate-resilient, market-based and circular principles.

This deliverable will also include the development of a sound methodology which includes a literature research of pros and cons of relevant technological options and best practices, stakeholder consultations (community, government, humanitarian community, service providers, etc.) and an in-depth feasibility analysis with the selection of relevant technological options and best practices based on safety, context, cost and optimal technical parameters based on international standards

This deliverable will also include the identification of design parameters, drawings, BoQs and SOPs of recommended water infrastructure, services and governance. The deliverable should include an estimation of expected costs and resources, required for long-term safe water and sanitation solutions in Bentiu and Malakal.

Deliverable by Week 12 after technical endorsement.

Second deliverable: Two technical reports with an evaluation of the full chain of the sanitation system at the IDP camp and sites in Bentiu (1x), and PoC site in Malakal (1x). This will include all infrastructure, services and governance components of the latrines and bathrooms in the IDP camp and sites in Bentiu, and Malakal PoC site. The evaluation will include an analysis of how the current system in place is functioning, and its pros and cons, against it’s design and minimum performance, cost-efficiency and quality standards, considering seasonal variations and flood risks. The evaluation will also include recommendations on how these components should be rehabilitated to ensure feasible, contextualized, safe, cost-efficient, low-maintenance water and sanitation infrastructure, services and governance. A particular emphasis will be given to components which can be operated autonomously and maintained by the public authorities or local service providers, in close coordination with the community. Efforts will be exerted to integrate nature-based, climate-resilient, market-based and circular principles.

This deliverable will also include, if necessary, the revision of this ToR and the development of a sound methodology which includes a literature research of pros and cons of relevant technological options and best practices, stakeholder consultations(community, government, humanitarian community, service providers, etc.), and an in-depth feasibility analysis with the selection of relevant technological options and best practices based on safety, context, cost and optimal technical parameters based on international standards.

This deliverable will also include the identification of design parameters, drawings, BoQs and SOPs of recommended sanitation infrastructure, services and governance. The deliverable should include an estimation of expected costs and resources, required for long-term safe water and sanitation solutions in Bentiu and Malakal.

These deliverables will interrelate and complement the corresponding outputs of the Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) evaluation.
