South-South experience to support Colombia's peace process - Exciting consultancy opportunities in Azerbaijan, Colombia, El Salvador, the Philippines and Rwanda

In a historic step and ending decades of internal conflict, Colombia is moving towards signing the peace agreements tentatively in March 2016. In the meantime, the country is getting ready for the peacebuilding process, particularly in areas deeply affected by the conflict. One key initiative is a mapping of emerging peacebuilding practices led by the Colombian Presidential Agency of International Cooperation (APC-Colombia), which will identify 12 cases in Colombia and one case each in Azerbaijan, El Salvador, Rwanda, and the Philippines. Apart from case analysis, there will also be video documentation and short films on each experience.

This will constitute a vital input to the peace process in Colombia, while also open opportunities for conflict and violence-affected countries and communities to learn from each other. While led by the government, the study is logistically supported by the UN Office for South-South cooperation (UNOSSC) handling the hiring of local consultants in collaboration with UNDP country offices.

This is an unique and exciting opportunity for local and national South-South experts interested in documenting and capturing peacebuilding experiences. Here are the openings at the country level:

Azerbaijan -  Research consultant (pdf) deadline 2 December; and Video-Photography production (pdf), deadline 4 December

Colombia - Research consultant (link) deadline 4 December; and Video-Photography production (pending)

El Salvador - Research consultant (pdf) deadline 2 December; and Video-Photography production (pdf) deadline 2 December
