We are currently looking for an Assessment Officer to support our team in Myanmar, based in Bangkok, Thailand.
Myanmar’s complex and multi-faceted humanitarian crisis is characterised by armed conflict, inter-communal tensions and vulnerability to natural hazards and was further complicated by the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19. The February 1st 2021 military takeover further exacerbated pre-existing vulnerabilities, leading to heightened needs amongst the population, with an estimated 17.6 million people, more a quarter of the country’s population, now estimated to be in humanitarian need. Ongoing clashes continue to trigger displacement, with 1.5 million people reportedly internally displaced since the military takeover, on top of the estimated 370,000 individuals living in a state of protracted displacement.
The REACH team – based remotely in Bangkok – has been supporting the humanitarian response in Myanmar since 2022 through the implementation of the first Multi-Sector Needs Assessment (MSNA). In 2023 REACH is implementing a second nationwide MSNA to inform the 2024 humanitarian programming cycle, as well as a Humanitarian Situation Monitoring (HSM) pilot. REACH is continuing to explore new and innovative ways to effectively inform the humanitarian response.
