Area Manager (Chernihiv) / Регіональний_а менеджер_ка (Чернігів)


Global Communities is implementing the 18-month, Community-Led Emergency Action and Response (CLEAR) program with support from the United States Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID/BHA) to respond to humanitarian needs in Ukraine. The program is designed with the goal of saving lives, reducing suffering, and addressing needs while supporting communities to lead their own response.

  • Purpose 1: Provide gender-sensitive protection services while strengthening capacities of local protection actors to increase safety and well-being of 20,000 displaced and war-affected people.
  • Purpose 2: Provide safe, habitable, and gender-sensitive shelter and settlements (S&S) solutions to 12,900 displaced and war-affected people, including improving access to suitable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) facilities, while strengthening the capacities of local actors.

CLEAR’s localized approach prioritizes capacity building of local civil society organizations (CSOs) to be effective responders, in line with USAID and BHA’s localization agenda. As the humanitarian repercussions of the conflict are expected to be protracted, building local capacity is critical early in the response to enable affected populations to address their own lifesaving needs. CLEAR has integrated reflection and learning to capture lessons from this approach that will be shared with USAID/BHA and the broader humanitarian community

CLEAR will focus on 20 communities Chernivtsi and Chernihivska Oblasts, to be selected jointly with our local partners and based on a rapid needs assessment conducted during co-creation. However, the emphasis will be on communities outside of major city centers that are underserved by the international response. This marries a needs-based response with our unique ready access to more remote communities and existing relationships there for an efficient response.
