ICT and Social Media Officer at Nile Basin Disclosure (NBD)

NILE BASIN DISCOURSE (NBD)

Engaging Civil Society for Social and Climate Resilience in the Nile Basin Project (P132448)

TERMS OF REFERENCE 

Title: ICT and Social Media Officer

Date: 17th October 2014
Status: Final
Issued by: Regional Manager, NBD
Reference no.: ICT & SMO 17/10/2014
Funded by: CIWA
Time period: 2 years
Location Entebbe, Uganda
Reports to: Communication & Media Officer

1.Background

The World Bank, as administrator of the Cooperation on International Waterways in Africa (CIWA) Trust Fund has provided support to the Nile Basin Discourse (NBD) for the implementation of a three year project titled: Engaging Civil Society for Social and Climate Resilience in the Nile Basin.

In 2000, the World Bank, IUCN and the WWF also initiated the establishment of the Nile Basin Discourse (NBD) with funding from the World Bank and the MacArthur Foundation. The NBD was established as a civil society network to influence NBI investments. First hosted as an IUCN project, the NBD became an independent, regional NGO in 2002, and has evolved into a network claiming over 800 member organizations throughout the Basin. Member organizations are local and national NGOs working on a range of issues relevant to Nile cooperation, including environmental conservation, gender equity, livelihoods, poverty reduction, and others. The stated mission of the NBD is “to ensure that a fully informed and basin-wide civil society develops and plays a key role in achieving the vision, through pro-active and critical influencing of projects, programs and policies of the Nile Basin Initiative and other development processes.” 

The Nile Basin Initiative’s (NBI) development partners have identified engaging communities and addressing the social impacts of Nile basin investments as a priority going forward. In addition, NBI has developed the Nile Cooperation for Results (NCORE) project in line with its strategic plan. With this endorsement, the World Bank agreed to support a technical assistance project to strengthen the capacity of the NBD. The project will complement the NCORE project and aim to engage civil society more actively in Nile Basin water resources development and management issues. 

The stakeholder feedback based on interviews with a number of stakeholders confirmed three critical roles for the network: (i) a bottom-up communications pipeline for raising the voices of citizens and civil society up to the governmental and regional levels; (ii) a top-down pipeline for educating and informing citizens and civil society on Nile issues and development projects, etc.; and, (ii) a horizontal pipeline between citizens and civil society organizations both within and across national borders for knowledge and capacity sharing. 

While the importance and value of NBD’s role is undisputed by all stakeholders, there is a clear need for strengthening the capacity of the network to fulfill the three core functions outlined above. NBI stakeholders indicated that NBD could engage in projects more constructively than they have at times by ensuring that the “right” players are brought to the table and by developing a more detailed understanding of the country context for investment projects. NBD’s member organizations greatly value the information they get from the NBD on Nile cooperation processes, but there is also a desire for more benefits in terms of capacity building, information, advocacy, and other resources in addition to a desire for more horizontal communication. Three main project components were agreed upon, that would focus on: (i) Strengthening the NBD Secretariat functions; (ii) Strengthening communications and outreach; and (iii) Capacity development of NBD members.
