The Municipal Association of Nepal (MuAN), founded in 1994, is an umbrella organization that represents all municipalities in Nepal and is registered under the National Directive Act 1961 AD. MuAN has successfully established itself as a national voice for municipalities, achieving a number of significant policy reform milestones in areas such as decentralization, governance, poverty, gender, and urban environmental issues. MuAN has been partnering with development partners on strengthening local governance and enhancing capacity of local governments including the organization. On this premise, MuAN has been implementing a project called “Strengthening Disaster Resilience of Municipal Governments in Nepal” with the support from USAID-funded Improved Disaster Risk Management (DRRM) Project, also known as TAYAR Nepal Program. The overall objective of the project is to assist in the strengthening of disaster risk reduction and management capacity at the subnational level.
MuAN is currently seeking applications from qualified Nepali candidates for a consultancy assignment to develop a capacity-building training manual on mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) into municipal governments, as well as train elected municipal representatives and functionaries.
Interested candidates/applicants who meet the criteria outlined in the Terms of Reference (TOR) are encouraged to submit their applications (covering letter, latest CV, and a brief financial proposal). The application along with supporting documents shall be electronically submitted at [email protected] by 5pm, 21 January 2022.
The consultancy assignment is expected to commence as soon as possible. Female, people from disadvantaged group, person with disability and indigenous community are highly encouraged to apply.
