The Integrated Community Development Project aims to ensure the most economically, socially and politically marginalised people, living within seriously and extremely disadvantage districts of PNG will have sustainable and measureable improvements in their well-being. With a core focus on governance, ward planning and improved access to services, the anticipated outcomes of the project are:
• Strengthened and better informed communities working in partnership with government and non-government organisations to identify prioritise and address development needs.
• Improved more secure and self reliant livelihoods including greater opportunities to improve sustainable agriculture; primary health care; nutrition; reproductive health, literacy and non-formal education and HIV & AIDS outcomes.
The ICDP Project Manager has overall management responsibility for the successful implementation of the PNG ICDP. During 2011, the ICDP project is expanding; adding two further districts to its scope and establishing a major civil society partnership as part of the expansion as it looks to trial alternative approaches to ward planning support within districts.
With ICDP having reached the two year point of the initial five year project, the Project Manager will be responsible for moving forward several new aspects. With an experienced and established team in place, the role will have key responsibilities in a guiding a midterm project review, overseeing entry and implementation into new districts as well as providing guidance and leadership on development of the new civil society engagement partnership from late 2011. Consolidation of current stakeholder relationships and government engagement and entry into new project sites will be crucial.
The role will be expected to work closely and in conjunction with an expanding Maternal and Infant Health (MIH) project and team that has scaled up health activities that originally began under the ICDP project and will support the integration of CARE PNG Women’s Empowerment approach into the project activities.
