Manage the Medair South Sudan Emergency Response Team’s WASH programme, ensure proposal objectives are met within the appropriate timescales, and that the services delivered are within the overall budget and meet Medair quality standards. Responsibilities also include managing ERT WASH project staff, coordinating with other partners to assess emergencies, designing WASH interventions, preparing project reporting as well as planning and supporting the development of new project proposals.
The goal of the WASH Emergency Response Team is to reduce morbidity and mortality among populations affected by acute emergencies through the provision of water, sanitation and hygiene promotion services. The Emergency Response Team (ERT) works across all states of South Sudan in response to acute emergencies: returnee/refugee influxes, disease outbreaks, displacement due to armed conflict and flooding. The ERT has four sub-teams covering different sectors – WASH, health, nutrition and non-food items/emergency shelter – but teams often work together at field sites. Multiple emergency response sites are active at any given time.
