Title: Intern for South East Asia Online Library
Reports to: Knowledge and Information Management Officer
Duration: 3 months (Monday to Friday)
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian network, reaching 150 million people each year through its 190 member National Societies. The Organisation acts before, during and after disasters, crises and health emergences in order to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people.
Our work is guided by seven fundamental principles (humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality), policies and by Strategy 2020, which voices our collective vision and determination to move forward in tackling the major challenges that confront humanity in the present decade.
The IFRC Secretariat has a decentralized structure: five regional offices (each with several Country Cluster Support Team and country offices reporting to it) covering the globe and responsible for frontline delivery through National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, backed by the Secretariat based in Geneva.
IFRC Asia Pacific region has developed the Operational plan for 2016 in line with the overall strategic direction of the IFRC’s 8 Areas of Focus and 4 Strategies for Implementation of the plan and Budget 2016 – 2020. In addition, IFRC Asia Pacific region and the Country Cluster Support Team Bangkok have been working together in enhancing the cooperation and coordination in Asia Pacific.
The “Asia Pacific (AP) Region – Disaster & Crises, Prevention, Response and Recovery – DCPRR Team” comprises of the Disaster Management, DRR and DRM Coordinators and delegates based in country offices and country cluster support teams, supported by the Asia Pacific DCPRR Unit in Kuala Lumpur. The work under the concept and technical guidance called “One DCPRRR Team approach”.
South East Asia RCRC societies online library (https://sites.google.com/site/drrtoolsinsoutheastasia/), established since 2012, is a Knowledge and Information Management initiative to support the Regional Community Safety and Resilience Forum (including DRR, Health, OD and the cross-cutting components of Gender and Diversity, Youth and Volunteers, Disaster Law, Humanitarian Diplomacy, Climate change adaptation, etc.).
The online library further profiles the Movement’s work (and resources) in the region for non-RCRC partners and counterparts, such as ASEAN and respective National Disaster Management Offices, as well as providing resources on our collective engagement with these partners, and resources from them, which would guide our active engagement.
In order to address some shortcomings in functionality of the current platform of the online library (not user-friendly, not allowing different levels of accessibility, and integration with social media), the Southeast Asia regional delegation in Bangkok is working to prepare and roll-out an improved online platform, that will respond better to the rationale of the online library.
Under the guidance and close collaboration with the Knowledge and Information Management Officer, the volunteer will support the preparation and roll-out of the improved online platform of the online library.
