Job description

Action Against Hunger has a vision of a world free from hunger. For 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have led the global fight against hunger. We save the lives of children and work with their communities before and after disaster strikes. We enable people to provide for themselves, see their children grow up strong, and build prosperous communities. We constantly search for more effective solutions, while sharing our knowledge and expertise with the world. We push for long-term change. We will never give up. Until the world is free from hunger.

A leading cause of rising hunger globally is the rise in violent conflict. Action Against Hunger is committed to action to tackle violence induced hunger, both through our operations, and by promoting accountability for potential breaches of human rights and humanitarian law that cause hunger.

This problem has gained more political prominence in recent years, as illustrated by the UN Security Council adopting resolution 2417 in 2018, which puts it on the UNSC agenda to respond to conflict induced food insecurity. Nevertheless, globally the political will to act remains weak. This is why Action Against Hunger is:

  • Developing a tool for monitoring and reporting on evidence of conflict induced hunger;
  • Being a leading voice on how governance bodies, including the UN Security Council, can better hold conflict parties to account for conflict induced hunger.

Since February 2020, Action Against Hunger has been working on the development of a methodology that aims to establish the causal link between Hunger and Conflict with the aim of contributing to the implementation of resolution 2417 of the United Nations Security Council. We are now increasing our research and advocacy capacity in this area in a project funded by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID).  Therefore, we are currently looking for Methodology Advisor with the necessary experience and knowledge to contribute to the implementation of the project.
