Afghanistan is affected by one of the most severe humanitarian crises in the world. It is the country with the highest level of risk in the Asia Pacific region, according to the Inform Risk Index for humanitarian disasters.  The current humanitarian challenges must be addressed through service adaptation as well as increased support and resources dedicated to humanitarian coordination of the response. Since 2012, the Afghanistan GBV Sub-Cluster has played a critical role as part of the humanitarian response. It is a core component of the Protection Cluster, ensuring there is a multi-sector prevention and response to GBV, while providing technical support to other sectors and the HCT for integrating GBV into all aspects of the humanitarian response in line with the HCT Protection Strategy. 


Due to the unique needs for rapid response, the GBV coordination structures need additional support to ensure a robust and effective coordination for collaborative and joint implementation response at Sub-National level. Please refer to the vacancy notice for detailed terms of reference for this assignment.
