Being host to three major global emergencies (Syria, Yemen, and Iraq) the MENA bureau Public information team also

requires continued Arabic language support. This has resulted in overburdening the current capacity within the bureau and resulted in recommending creating a function for handling the translation\proofreading and Arabic editing for the MENA Bureau.

See below for this postion's Operational Context

The MENA Regional Bureau in Amman covers 14 countries in the MENA region. The region continues to pose overwhelming challenges, with multiple and complex emergency situations on an unprecedented scale. In 2018, there were some 17 million people of concern to UNHCR in the MENA region. The majority - over 10 million - were internally displaced from conflict in Syria, Yemen and Iraq - three of the largest humanitarian and displacement crises in the world. The Syria crisis itself remains the largest displacement crisis in the world, with over 5.6 million registered refugees in the neighboring host countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt, and over 6 million people displaced within Syria.

In this context, the Senior Management needs to ensure prompt and efficient management of information and documentation flow in both Arabic and English languages, in light of the increasing demands on producing documentation in Arabic for the service of the governments and other external interlocutors in the region. Furthermore, in light of recent efforts by UNHCR to decentralize & regionalize processes ensuring more efficient approaches to supporting the field, there has been an increased pressure on localizing products in the Arabic language, something that the region is in dire need for. Closing date for opening of "Senior Arabic Translation and Editing Associate, UNOPS, LICA-7" is 31 December 2020
