For over 30 years the Life & Peace Institute has worked in the Horn of Africa to strengthen the voice of people affected by conflict and support solutions from the bottom up. In 2014, LPI signed a host agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia to open its regional office to engage in continental and sub-regional policy affairs and to effectively facilitate and oversee its projects in the Horn of Africa Region from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
In 2017-2020, the Horn of Africa Regional Programme (HARP) of the Life & Peace Institute will advocate for human-centred, participatory and evidence-based regional responses potent enough to “disrupt” the perpetual cycle of states’ responses to the region’s human security challenges. Through HARP in 2017-2020, LPI will contribute to improved policies and actions on strategic regional issues affecting human that will lead to a reality where all people in the Horn lead lives of peace and dignity, where human security needs are met, as a result of inclusive and transformative policy engagement.
At the core of the work of LPI is its commitment to reflective practice and learning. This commitment, captured in the Institute’s third strategic priority- Knowledge and Learning to enhance practice- is accompanied by the recognition of the need for documentation, learning, and sharing of generated evidence and knowledge. Your role on our team is to be excited about learning and meticulous for documentation. You will assist with building MEL systems focused on data collection, data aggregation, data analysis and reporting (internal and external). This position will provide support to LPI in-house and to partners. You will be an expert listener and bring a range of experience for designing systems to support the reporting and learning components of our work. We take great pride in our work, and you should too.
The MEL Officer is based in Addis Ababa and can travel to program implementation locations. This position will be a resource for all program staff to enhance design, monitoring, and evaluation and quality.
