Climate change is dramatically impacting our world. Vulnerable populations with whom RI partners, often lack the resources to prepare for, mitigate, and adapt to climate change; they will bear the brunt of its fallout. Worst impacted will be RI communities experiencing armed conflict and the ensuing governance breakdown. Often, RI is among a handful of organizations providing assistance to remote and highly vulnerable communities. RI invests in four broad program sectors: Health and Nutrition; Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH); Livelihoods; and Education. RI is adopting integrated Theories of Change, which will rely on timely evidence-based program iterations to enable desired systems change.
RI is active in 15 countries around the world, including some of the most fragile: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ghana, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen.
RI employs 7,000+ staff and auxiliary workers
97% of staff are local nationals
RI spent $130 million on programs in 2021
In the above context, the RI Director of MEAL is a:
Visionary leader, driving a highly collaborative process to crystallize and lead RI’s MEAL vision and strategy to make ‘Evidence-Based’ an RI core capacity.
Consummate humanitarian voice, articulating RI’s sharpened positioning as a leader in the humanitarian and development sector, globally.
Team builder and talent developer, working as an integral contributor building MEAL capacity and driving talent development throughout the organization.
Kind contributor to an extraordinary team, contributing to collective problem solving as the organization grapples with complex challenges in high-risk settings.
