Myanmar is committed to implement the Sendai Framework for Action on Disaster Risk Reduction and meet its targets. Myanmar is co-chair of ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management Working Group on Recovery along with Indonesia and led the process of developing the ASEAN Disaster Recovery Reference Guide. To improve planning and management of recovery processes, the Government constituted the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Working Committee. However, all the functions relating to disaster recovery were not established and defining clear roles in recovery assessments, planning, implementation, monitoring and funding has been a challenge. Lack of technical capacity, human and financial resources, awareness, lack of inter-ministerial convening power and limited presence below State /Region level make it challenging for the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Working Committee to perform wide-ranging responsibilities and coordinate the work of line ministries. In addition, there is a high reliance on international experts for several aspects of recovery planning and implementation.

Through the Governance for Resilience and Sustainability Project (GRSP), the “Building Capacities for Resilient Recovery-Phase II” initiative will contribute to the strengthening of national capacities and systems to plan and manage recovery processes. Strengthening national capacities will result in “building back better and safer” thus contributing to building the resilience of the country and its communities in the face of disaster and restoring sustainable development pathways.

Output 1 of this initiative aims to improve the enabling environment for recovery through enhanced institutional arrangements and streamlined mandates. This is achieved through reviewing existing institutional arrangements, capacity and mandates (functions, roles and responsibilities of the Government authorities) to identify options for improvement. This includes also to analyse the existing policy framework, including financial and monitoring mechanisms to support recovery, to identify any gaps and provide technical support to the development of new or improved policies and mechanisms.

Output 2 aims at strengthening capacities of government authorities and other relevant stakeholders in implementing a resilient recovery. This output aims to enhance the Government capacity through training, awareness, development of tools and guidelines and testing tools in practice. Small-scale exercises will be carried out as case studies for learning.

Under Output 3, the initiative aims to enhance national capacities for planning and implementing recovery at community-level, ensuring that a bottom up approach is pursued and ground needs are prioritized in the recovery processes.

Output 4 promotes South-South cooperation and exchange for recovery management as well as better knowledge development, management, good practices and lessons learn sharing for effective recovery programmes.

Under this initiative and following the work that has been already initiated during the first phase of the project implementation, , the national recovery officer will support UNDP to:

    Support the government counterparts and in close collaboration with the International consultant, in the process of drafting, finalizing, consolidating (in both English and Myanmar versions) and endorsing the Myanmar National Disaster Recovery GuidelinesOrganizing discussions and multi-stakeholders consultations with key governments departments at national and subnational levels, relevant development partners and other actors, including the private sectorSupport the finalization of a State level Recovery Plan in Mon State and the selection and implementation of activities, part of the plan in coordination with the local Mawlawmyine UNDP officeIn coordination with the international consultant, with UNDP staff in Yangon and with relevant government departments, support the adaptation of the PDNA methodology in MyanmarSupport the setting up of baseline information in order to facilitate the adaptation of the PDNA methodology in MyanmarSupport coordination among different stakeholders involved in the processSupport the organization and eventually, facilitation of trainings and training of trainers on recovery and/or recovery related issues.Support in documenting good practices and lessons learnt, providing recommendations and drafting knowledge products related to recovery issuesSupport South-South cooperation exchange, meetings and high-level fora

Heavy monsoon rains in July to September 2018 resulted in widespread flooding and landslides in several states and regions in Myanmar. Damages to infrastructure such as roads, public facilities, bridges and dams were reported. Agriculture was very badly affected with paddy farms as the most affected. Disaster poses a more severe impact on the livelihoods of families engaged in agriculture, with small-scale farmers and casual workers being the most affected groups.  Sediments, debris and sludge covered mostly of the farms which threatens the readiness of the farms for cultivation during the winter season.  All these poses the challenge and undermines the ability of the affected population to recover fast from the flood disaster. 

UNDP Myanmar complemented the interventions undertaken by the Government of Myanmar by supporting the government in early recovery activities aiming at supporting resilient livelihoods recovery and developing capacities for recovery planning and coordination in Mon State. Specifically, by providing direct support to livelihoods stabilization of affected communities and develop capacities of local authorities (at State/Region and Township levels) to lead the design and implementation of early recovery and long-term recovery efforts.  This support is part of the initiative ‘Building Capacities for Resilient recovery – Phase 2’ under the Governance for Resilience and Sustainability Project that UNDP, along with the Department of Disaster Management, is currently implementing in the country. The initiative aims to strengthen national capacities and systems to plan and manage recovery processes. Strengthening national capacities can result in “building back better and safer” thus contributing to building the resilience of affected communities in the face of disaster and restoring sustainable development pathways

Output 1 of this initiative aims to improve the enabling environment for recovery through enhanced institutional arrangements and streamlined mandates.

This includes also to analyse the existing policy framework, including financial and monitoring mechanisms to support recovery, to identify any gaps and provide technical support to the development of new or improved policies and mechanisms.

Output 2 aims to enhance national capacities for implementing recovery at the community level. This implies to build local capacities for recovery planning and implementation, while having in place effective mechanisms to understand local needs and address them throughout the process.

More recently, heavy rains caused extensive flooding and landslides throughout Mon State during the 2019 wet season. The latest disaster conditions exacerbate the impacts from 2018 and make the implementation of coordinated recovery activities even more critical.

In order to support these ongoing activities by maintaining the coordination network established in Mon State, ensuring effective and efficient functioning of the UNDP Mawlamyine Office and ensuring effective administrative and logistical support, UNDP is looking for a coordination officer that will:

    Monitor and oversee the early recovery and recovery intervention ongoing and plannedEnsure dialogue and coordination with different involved stakeholders (UNDP, government counterparts, NGOs, private company, local communities)Support in administrative and logistic tasks

Vacancy announcement for WASH consultant with UNICEF Myanmar. Relevant and interested Myanmar National applicants can apply.

National Consultant_ for National minimum requirements for Water, Sanitation and hygiene in Healthcare facilities

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Background

Good WASH services in healthcare facilities links to multiple key development objectives within Myanmar including quality universal health coverage, infection prevention and control, patient safety, and child/newborn and maternal health. Impacts of good WASH services extend to staff dignity, morale, performance and safety as well as respectful care to mothers and children. Accordingly, SDG targets 6.1 and 6.2 include WASH in health care facilities as part of universal WASH access for all.

Numerous policies and strategies within Myanmar reference WASH in Healthcare Facilities (table 1) however the scope is not comprehensive and crucially detailed guidelines are not in place to allow for the development of effective minimum standards. Currently it is not possible to report against standard indicators on the status of WASH in Healthcare facilities within the country. Without quality data it is difficult to make plans and develop budgets or financing strategies to move forward.

The government of Myanmar has recently reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring good WASH services in health care facilities through the National Strategy for rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), WASH in Schools and WASH in Healthcare Facilities (2016-2030).Which outlines Strategic objective 7.5: All health facilities have adequate water supplies, toilets and handwashing facilities for patients, carers and staff, and clinical and hazardous waste disposal facilities, waste water drainage and treatment appropriate for the type of health facility, and maintain a clean environment. This document is a key reference for the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP) 2018-2030 specifically Strategy 5.3: Enable safe and equitable access to water and sanitation in ways that ensure environmental sustainability.

To support progressive realization of improved WASH in healthcare the UNICEF/WHO led Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) has proposed service ladders to enable countries at different stages of development to track and compare progress in reducing inequity. These globally normative tools have already been tested extensively and can support Myanmar with measuring progress in delivering services across five sub sectors of WASH in Healthcare facilities. While these indicators can relatively quickly be put into operation there remains significant work to be done to define appropriate minimum requirements that are adapted to the Myanmar context.

The need for National minimum requirements for WASH in health care facilities

In recognition of the benefits of WASH in Healthcare facilities there is already significant investment ongoing and planned within the Health sector from the government of Myanmar and supporting donors. Nevertheless, current policies and programmes only touch on the specific issue of ‘WASH in healthcare facilities’. Given the current rapidly developing health policy context in Myanmar it is recommended that comprehensive minimum requirements are developed that can map to and support existing policy frameworks. This will strengthen consistency in delivery of WASH services in healthcare facilities and limit coordination breakdowns between stakeholders.

Linking requirements to robust monitoring tools will furthermore allow for improved reporting, analysis and benchmarking of progress towards universal coverage of WASH. Better data will allow for the development of realistic budgets that can be targeted to the areas of most need. Finally the alignment of Myanmar minimum requirements with global SDG indicators will allow for reporting.

In close collaboration with the Department of Public Health of the Ministry of Health and Sports, the national consultant will be mainly responsible for supporting the International Consultant and Task Force to develop National Minimum Requirements for WASH in Healthcare facilities.
