1. Background
Good Neighbors is an international humanitarian development NGO founded in Korea in 1991. It was granted General Consultative Status from the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC). The aim is to make the world a place without hunger, where people live together in harmony. In Tanzania it was officially established on 2005 and our efforts work towards creating environment where children’s rights are protected and sustainable development of communities through empowerment, leadership and ownership.

Good Neighbors Tanzania (GNTZ) opened its office in 2005 to carry out Community Development Projects including education, water and sanitation, health, income generation, advocacy and humanitarian assistance for children and local residents.

In 2015 GNTZ initiated interventions in the Kigoma Region within three districts (Kasulu, Kibondo and Kakonko). GNTZ through its operations in the Kigoma Region focuses on strengthening resilience, peace and stability between refugee and hosting communities in Kasulu, Kibondo and Kakonko.

Since its beginning of operation in Kigoma Region, GNTZ has been implementing various activities that contribute to peaceful coexistence of refugees and host communities in the region, including establishing two joint-Vocational Training Centers where people from both refugee camps and host communities learn together and providing alternative energy sources to refugees (charcoal briquettes).

Currently, in partnership with World Vision Tanzania (WVT), GNTZ is implementing the
“Strengthening Smallholder’s Agriculture Value Chain, Gender Equality and Peace in Refugee Hosting Districts; Kilimo Tija Kigoma (KiTiKi)” project that is funded by World Food Programme (WFP). As part of the project, GNTZ will implement various activities to enhance social cohesion and achieve peaceful coexistence of the two communities in the region.

Good Neighbors Tanzania is looking for individual to perform the following role;
Consultant for Conflict Scan Assessment
Position: Consultant for Conflict Scan Assessment
Reports to: Head of Kigoma Project Office
Location: Kasulu, Kibondo and Kakonko Districts in Kigoma Region
Duration: 6 Weeks

2. About Social Cohesion and Conflict Scan Assessment
Kigoma Region has been hosting refugees from its neighbouring countries and currently it is home to more than 200,000 refugees who are residing in Nduta (Kibondo district) and Nyarugusu (Kasulu district) refugee camps. With its rich experiences in working with the two communities, GNTZ has proposed several interventions to the project that can improve social cohesion and promote peaceful coexistence such as establishing peaceful coexistence committees, promoting alternative energy sources for refugees, providing conflict resolution training to farmers groups in the host communities and conducting regular community dialogues on peace. However, with a view to establishing the ground for the suggested interventions, GNTZ will conduct a conflict scan assessment as the first activity.

Conflict Scan Assessment is a systematic process to analyse and prioritise the dynamics of peace, conflict, stability, and instability in a given context. Conflict scan assessment is the first step in formulating strategies, developing policies, and designing programs that effectively prevent, mitigate, and manage conflict dynamics. Based on the findings of the assessment, GNTZ will refine the activity implementation plans for the implementation of KiTiKi Component II.

While it is known that there are tensions between the refugees and host communities that arise from various issues such as competition over the resources (e.g., firewoods) and security incidents happening nearby the camps, a thorough research is needed to identify the levels and types of conflict in the context of the camp and the surrounding host communities, as well as the root causes, drivers and triggers of the conflict/s and the main actors involved. Furthermore, it also analyses the drivers of peace and what connects people despite the tensions. Such structured overview and analysis of these different elements will provide a solid basis to guide the project where and how to intervene to address the conflicts within the given time and budgetary frame.

WFP has developed a Guidance Note on conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity risk assessment, which provides practical step by step guidance and methodology on how to approach a conflict scan assessment and serves to guide WFP and its partner (GNTZ) in doing the necessary analyses for the above-mentioned conflict scan. Therefore, the Conflict Scan Assessment will follow steps that are stipulated in the WFP Guidance Note.

3. Aim and Objectives of the Assignment
3.1. Aims
The assignment will assess the levels, types and extent of tensions and potential conflicts present within and between refugee and host community, where, when, how these manifest, who is engaged, and why. This assessment aims to identify conflict triggers and analyse dynamics underneath the tensions, as well as drivers of peace and possibly existing structures conducive to social cohesion and peaceful coexistence. This will inform the KiTiKi project in preparing for detailed implementation approach to address the existing tensions and promote social cohesion and peaceful coexistence measures.

3.2. Objectives
Objectives of the study are: To identify the levels and types of conflicts and tensions and conflict causes, drivers and triggers, how these manifest, who is engaged, where and why it happens, particularly between the refugees and host communities; the analysis shall include an analysis of drivers of peace, including a complete overview and analysis of possible existing structures, formal or informal, that serve objectives of social cohesion and peaceful coexistence,
To determine mitigation measures and make recommendations how to address the identified conflicts through measures for social cohesion and peaceful coexistence, including an evaluation of the feasibility of the proposed interventions,
To identify key messages that can be included in activities for social cohesion and conflict resolution, including for possible community meetings, training content or information, education and communication (IEC) materials (brochure, leaflet, flyers).

4.Scope of the Assignment
4.1. Methodologies

The Consultant is expected to develop an appropriate survey approach/methodology to address the conflict analysis objectives, whereby WFP’s Guidance Note on conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity risk assessment shall be consulted and considered. The Consultant, in consultation with the project team will develop a detailed and appropriate study methodology, plan and execution of the study. The survey methodology and tools developed by the consultant will be reviewed and approved by GNTZ before the rollout of data collection.

Data collection approaches and tools; focusing on structured, semi structured and unstructured interviews with host communities and refugees in order to capture all required information.

Observations- this will involve participant and non-participant observations thus observing the real situation when visiting the refugees camp and the host/surrounding communities.
Data analysis techniques-In the data analysis process, the collected ‘raw’ data will be translated into meaningful information by verifying them, compiling and summarizing them, comparing them to other information, and identifying key findings.
Consideration must be given to gender and minorities when planning the data collection activities (e.g., focus groups) to ensure that they are conducted in an inclusive and participatory manner.
Likewise, the possible sensitive nature of the subject topic must be considered and formats, particularly for focus group discussions, designed in a way that ensures a safe space for discussion and respects the principle of Do No Harm of WFP and its partners.

4.2. Expected Deliverables
