Job Description

JOB PURPOSE

Over the last 5 years and because of the conflict and related break down of the economy in Yemen, the food security situation in Yemen has been worsening with an intermittent improvement in 2019. The December 2020 IPC results indicated that 16.2 million people would be food insecure (IPC 3+) in the first half of 2021, even when humanitarian food assistance is provided; this includes 47,000 people classified in IPC phase 5 (catastrophe). Thus, WFP plans to continue the reinforcement of the analytical capacities for improved food security and economic analysis services to be able to inform the programme.

 

The research, assessment and monitoring unit undertakes regular large-scale surveys, monitoring activities, rapid assessments and mapping services to inform the WFP country officed with updated food security information including economic and price data. These help both programmatic decisions and advocacy efforts. The current price monitoring system with weekly data collection has been expanded from a pure governorate level to district level in the southern governorates deploying a private third-party service provider, while similar efforts are being envisaged for the northern districts. In addition, WFP Yemen has piloted the market functionality index in 2020 assessing the feasibility to switch to market-based distribution modalities, in particular cash. Further market assessment and analyses are becoming crucial for WFP to support the scale-up of cash distributions but also to assess market impacts of humanitarian interventions. To manage the entire process from design of data collection to data analysis and reporting, the VAM unit in Sana’a is recruiting an economist/market analyst.
