About the Project
The Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) is a partnership between the Australian Government and six Australian non-government organisations (NGOs). It is funded by the Australian Government. The AHP Support Unit is managed by Alinea.

Anticipatory action aims to shift humanitarian response from reacting to hazards to acting ahead of them. The AHP Anticipatory Action Fund trial will support AHP partners (Australian NGOs) to put in place actions prior to a hazard to reduce the impact of the disaster. Anticipatory action is expected to deliver several benefits, including: saving lives and livelihoods; preserving people’s dignity; and, providing value for money. The trial will take place in Vanuatu, Timor-Leste, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

The consultant will conduct a real-time review spanning the duration of the trial, as well as providing support to AHP partners on monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) practices. He/she will help to identify successes and challenges in the implementation of the Anticipatory Action Fund as well as promoting partner learning and adaptation.
