MISSION CONTEXT
The Syrian crisis is the greatest humanitarian crisis of the last 20 years. According to the latest UN figures, about 13.5 million people are currently affected by the crisis in Syria, including about 6.5 million IDPs, while over 4 million Syrians have sought refuge in neighbouring countries or in Europe. The current humanitarian response only provides a patchy and partial coverage of the growing humanitarian needs. Five years after the beginning of the crisis, the number of injured persons in Syria keeps rising, with a severe lack of rehabilitative care and psychosocial support. In hard-to-reach areas and/or areas of new displacement, local populations and IDPs are in need of emergency assistance in terms of food, household essential items, and other basic needs. The inclusion of the most vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, in the humanitarian response remains a major concern.
HI is managing a remote humanitarian program from three hubs in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, along four main pillars:
  1. Support to health partners (hospitals, care houses, rehabilitation centers, local NGOs) for the provision of comprehensive rehabilitation services (physical rehabilitation, psychosocial support and/or prosthetics and orthotics) through training, technical supervisions and donations of rehabilitation material and/or equipment;
  2. Provision of basic needs kits – Food baskets, Household Essential Items and Hygiene kits – in one-shot distributions to people who experience a sudden degradation of their living conditions due to renewed conflict, displacement and/or exclusion from humanitarian assistance;
  3. Education to the risks and effects caused by conventional weapons (including mines, Explosive Remnants of War and Small Arms Light Weapons) and urgent marking of hazardous areas;
  4. Training and technical support to other humanitarian actors on the inclusion of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable persons in the humanitarian response.                                                     
The current intervention is based on a mix of remote management of national teams and remote partnerships with local structures and organisations. HI has implemented some direct management programs in the past and is looking for ways to launch more in the coming months.
OBJECTIVES OF THE POSITION
In 2016, the HI Syria Mission merged its three existing hubs and at the beginning of 2017, a fourth hub was opened.
•             Meanwhile, there has been a huge work undertaken by the MEAL department on standardizing the practices notably in term of data collection/entry/archiving and on developing a mobile data collection system, firstly in the Mine Action sector. The standard tools are now under deployment and the consolidation of data at national level, including the historical data, has just started; the review of indicators and related analysis is on-going and remains to be validated and implemented. Some evaluation and third party monitoring tools need to be developed. All of these are developed in line with the on-going development of the IMSMA system at UNMAS level which represents an additional level of consideration in the whole process.
•             The same process is ongoing for the health and basic needs sectors and should have to be replicated for other sectors of intervention.
•             All of these are part of a larger review of the strategy of intervention at national level, which the MEAL department is actively involved in.
•             An additional objective is to deploy and implement the institutional policy on Project Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation at national level. 
•             The MEAL department consists today of four persons at coordination level: 1 MEAL coordinator, 1 MEAL Manager, 1 Information Manager and 1 Information Management officer. There are two IM officers located at each hub and managed by the project managers.
