To Undertake Consultancy on “Assisting in the Development of a One UN Joint Programme in North-Western Tanzania” North-Western Tanzania has been a safe haven for refugees fleeing conflict for decades. The United Nations and the Government of Tanzania have been jointly collaborating to ensure refugee protection and meet refugees’ basic needs through large-scale humanitarian field operations in Kigoma and Kagera Regions. Progress in neighbouring countries has resulted in a significant decline in the number of refugees living in Tanzania. Humanitarian operations have already been scaled back considerably and will decrease rapidly over the coming years. In 2004 five United Nations Agencies developed the Joint Programme for Strengthening Human Security in refugee hosting areas of North-Western Tanzania. The Programme was intended to serve as the nucleus for an integrated response to key challenges to transition and sustainable development. Phase II of the Joint Programme for Strengthening Human Security in North-Western Tanzania will come to an end in December 2007. there is a need to formulate a follow-up phase. It is therefore an appropriate time to review lessons learnt and best practices from the previous phases of the UN support to refugees hosting communities in Kigoma and Kagera regions. The Third Phase of the programme will be part of the United Nations’ “ONE UN” reform pilot. The new joint programme will build on the regional/district priorities and on the country’s development agenda and priorities as reflected in the MKUKUTA in recognition of the joint effort needed to bridge existing gaps and achieve common outputs. These outputs will contribute to the socio-economic development of the region within the context of UNDAF indicators. Some of the specific objectives of the consultancy will be:  Stakeholder activity and social services availability analysis;  Gap/Needs analysis;  Communication analysis;  Mapping out potential UN support. Given the time-frame at hand, it is of paramount importance that a team of consultants is engaged to support UN Agencies and the Government of Tanzania in the formulation of a new ONE UN joint programme for North-Western Tanzania.
