Food Security and Livelihood Coordinator

Solidarites International

Aden, Yemen


General objective:

Ensure pertinence and quality of the FSL portfolio of SI in Yemen. Develop a pertinent FSL strategy responding to the context and needs. Enhance FSL quality elements and integrate crosscutting programmatic subjects (Protection perspective, environment/climate change, DRR, Information Management). Steer and lead the technical follow up of the existing portfolio.

The main challenges:

The Yemen Mission in 2024 presents an overall budget of around 20 M EUR and multiple donors (ECHO, BHA, EU INTPA, YHF, SDC, CDCS among others). Humanitarian funding is reducing and being further streamlined. Positioning in frontlines and good programme follow up becomes insufficient to guarantee mission's sustainability. For this reason, the programmatic structure of the Mission requires major investments into strategic areas that can allow the Country programme to evolve: key investments for development of concept notes and proposals towards development donors; integration of other actors/sectors through strategic local and international partnerships; enhancement of programme quality; innovation.

Priorities for the 2/3 first months:

  • lead and follow closely the implementation of the new EU delegation livelihood project
  • Steer the development of key investments, studies and concept notes for kickstarting new programmatic approaches mainly in the livelihood sector and towards different donors. Be the driving force for putting new FSL activities into place
  • Reinforce integration of priority crosscutting elements: Protection mainstreaming, environment/CC


Education/academic background:

  • BA minimum

Specific skills and experience:

  • 5 years or more of experience in the humanitarian sector
  • 3-4 years of experience on a similar position
  • Experience in implementation of cash and livelihood projects and in the development of studies, analysis and concept note for development donors
  • Solid Experience in livelihood programming
  • Solid capacity to work on enhancement of the FSL programme quality aspects
  • Advanced communication skills with capacity to juggle conflicting priorities
  • Advanced analytical skills
  • Capacity to work to tight deadlines in a challenging humanitarian environment
