Details of the offer

This position is aimed at supporting the development of the Community led resilience planning component under the guidance of WP 2 leads from KDI and the University of Nairobi. Part of the assignment will be to build capacity for regular community led risk assessments. This work will build on the transitions analysis under other related research within the Hub. The work is expected to involve the Mukuru community in assessing their vulnerability and deploy tools for resilience action planning. More specifically, empirical community perspectives on priority hazards and their risks, inter-relations with anthropogenic processes, and household/community assets will be assessed. Community planning forums (e.g. community designed schools, FGDs, FORIN analysis, case studies) combined with citizen science analysis will be deployed to describe and identify vulnerability hotspots at micro (i.e. household level) and macro (i.e. Community level) and understanding the socio-political and physical drivers of such vulnerabilities.
