International Alert is one of the world's leading peacebuilding organizations, with over 30 years of experience supporting communities, advising governments, organizations and companies on how to build peace. Alert works with people in conflict-affected and threatened areas to make a positive difference for peace; to improve the substance and implementation of international policies relevant to peacebuilding; and to strengthen the peacebuilding sector. Alert currently has field offices in over 20 countries and across Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Central Asia, Caucasus, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. International Alert began operations in Nigeria in 2011 as a partner on security governance within the Nigeria Stability and Reconciliation programme (NSRP). Since then we have launched a social cohesion and security governance programmes in the Northeast. Nigeria’s security forces, including the police, are often accused of human rights abuses including unlawful killings, arbitrary arrest and detention, extortion, sexual harassment, and disappearances. This has led to a lack of trust from civilians, both due to the perceived ineffectiveness of security response to halt violence and to years of disenfranchisement and marginalization from decision-making regarding security matters. Currently, civilian participation in security management is limited but there is a strong demand for greater inclusion. Civilians (including traditionally marginalized groups like women and youth) are increasingly participating in local conflict management platforms. There is also greater demand for greater accountability for the actions of formal and informal security actors, and for a stronger coordination between citizens and security actors to assure that decisions being made are understood and agreed-upon by all relevant parties. Alert’s 18 months Public Safety and Security project commenced in October 2019 and aims to address these demands and contribute to stabilization and peacebuilding in targeted communities and Internally displaced People’s (IDP) camps in Gwoza, Ngala, Bama and Dikwa LGAs of Borno state. Purpose The Consultant will be responsible for developing training contents, building on existing Alert’s modules and facilitating the trainings sessions for Community Safety Partnership beneficiaries of CSSF-funded Public Safety and Security project of Alert in Borno State. The training will cover peacebuilding, conflict and gender sensitivity as well as community safety component of community-oriented policing. The overall programme which is aimed at improving the effectiveness of security responses and protection of civilians through enhanced trust and collaboration between civilians and security forces in Borno will be working with both community and security agencies. The consultant will work with the Project Officers under the supervision of the Project Manager to develop the training materials and facilitate the training session in the target locations.
