About US:
GOAL International is an international non-profit organization that was founded in 1977 and works to promote the realization of the fundamental rights of the poor, the vulnerable, and those affected by humanitarian crisis.

About GOAL’s Nutrition Programme:
GOAL Uganda is part of a consortium led by Tufts University to conduct a research project (One Nutrition in Complex Environments (ONCE)) funded by USAID which aims to pilot and carefully measure the effects of a multi-level multi-sectoral nutrition intervention in Agago District, Northern Uganda, and determine potential for scale up in a complex environment.  The research has three aims;  
  • Aim 1: Implement and test two approaches to nutrition: (1) GOAL’s Nutrition Impacts Positive Practice (NIPP) program and (2) NIPP in combination with a “value-added” integrated approach (NIPP+).

  • Aim 2: Identify best-practices emerging from the implementation of the two approaches (NIPP alone and NIPP+) through process and program monitoring for effective integration, implementation, scale-up, and uptake.

Energy and Digital Finance Advisor Job Placement - Mercy Corps and Power Africa Uganda Accelerator

Job Title:             Energy and Digital Finance Advisor
Organisation: Mercy Corps and Power Africa Uganda Electricity Supply Accelerator (Power Africa Uganda Accelerator)
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda, with 50% travel to West Nile

About Mercy Corps and Power Africa Uganda Electricity Supply Accelerator (Power Africa Uganda Accelerator):
Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, Mercy Corps partners to put bold solutions into action—helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future. In Uganda since 2006, the Mercy Corps team has differentiated itself as a forward-thinking, market-driven agency, having implemented or currently implementing over 40 programs in country, valued at over 110 million GBP, and changing the lives of 2.5 million Ugandans and South Sudanese refugees. In Uganda’s West Nile region, Mercy Corps has broadened the reach and understanding of market-based solutions in refugee and host community settings. Their programs reach more than 11,000 refugee and host community members through smart subsidies (for agricultural inputs), financial services (Village Savings and Loan Associations), and improving linkages to suppliers.

In February 2018, USAID and Power Africa announced the launch of USAID’s Power Africa Uganda Accelerator with the goal of adding 1,000 MW and one million new connections by 2020. This target is aligned with the Government of Uganda (GOU)’s target of increasing electricity generation capacity to 2,500 MW by 2020 and Power Africa’s overall target of adding 30,000 MW and 60 million new connections to electricity (on grid and off grid) in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2030. The Power Africa Uganda Accelerator’s objective is to facilitate the increase of clean energy electricity generation and electricity access among rural and urban communities in Uganda by working with clean energy generation and access project developers to reach financial close and/or commissioning and to enhance the enabling environment for clean energy investment. The Power Africa Uganda Accelerator works through its networks including the Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA), an association of over 100 solar product and service providers that guarantees much needed quality in the clean energy space and the Alur Highland Coffee Alliance, a network of 16,000 farmers in the West Nile region.

Context and Opportunity Summary
Uganda hosts one of the world’s largest refugee populations, including a substantial number of South Sudanese refugees, who have primarily settled in the West Nile region. One of the greatest challenges facing both refugees and low-income Ugandans in the West Nile is the lack of reliable, affordable, and clean energy sources—for both electricity and cooking. Alternative energy sources, such as improved cook stoves and solar panels exist, but their high upfront costs are a barrier.

The expansion of mobile money in East Africa (including Uganda) has altered this financial context (including in the Bidibidi refugee settlement, where up to 25% of refugees use mobile phones for financial transactions).  The percentage is even higher for low income Ugandans in the West Nile region. Solar panels and improved cook stove providers are integrating mobile money in new business models that capitalize on customers’ ability to make small, mobile-based payments (vs. expensive in-person transactions). These “pay-as you-go” (PAYG) energy services offer a compelling solution to energy poverty for refugees and low-income Ugandans. At the same time, PAYG services offer the opportunity for customers to build credit histories and access additional financial and energy services.

Mercy Corps and Power Africa Uganda Accelerator believe that expanding availability and use of PAYG energy services in the West Nile will substantially improve quality of life for refugees and host communities, while also reducing pressure on the environment. At the same time, a coalition led by Power Africa, called the Smart Communities Coalition (SCC) has convened to improve the delivery of essential services to refugees and host community members through enhanced coordination between public and private entities and strategic implementation of technology. Efforts focus on three foundational pillars—connectivity, digital tools, and energy access.

This position will play a leadership role in coordinating SCC activities in Yumbe settlement and developing and implementing a broader strategy to expand availability of PAYG energy services in the West Nile with the ultimate vision of powered, connected, and productive communities and refugee settlements.

Job Summary:  The Energy and Digital Finance Advisor is a new position and the position holder will sit within Mercy Corps Uganda’s team and coordinate closely with Mercy Corps’ global technical teams and Power Africa Uganda Accelerator’s Off-Grid Energy Advisor. The purpose of this role is to facilitate the expansion and growth of demand-driven PAYG energy services including, most importantly, access to electricity to refugee and host communities in the West Nile. The advisor will manage feasibility studies, market research, and pilot activities using existing funding, while supporting new fundraising opportunities that can support subsequent phases of this work. This position will demand effective engagement of the private sector, balanced with deep understanding of end user needs and preferences.

Key Duties and Responsibilities:

·         Develop deep partnerships and build relationships with PAYG providers and selected solar product suppliers, gaining understanding of private sector drivers, expansion strategies and limitations, and documenting findings in a PAYG partner scoping report.
·         Manage a demand study on West Nile host community and refugee consumer segments, through demand analysis (examining energy product preferences and potential solar product suppliers) and ability/willingness to pay for energy services.
·         Develop partnership agreements with PAYG providers to conduct pilot deployments and market tests of PAYG solutions in cooperation with willing solar product suppliers.

Manage Pilot Activities
·         Conduct frequent field visits to host communities and refugee settlements in West Nile, including a consistent presence during pilot activities.

·         Prepare and support PAYG suppliers in all aspects of product trials and tests, and ensure that the activities are carried out in line with humanitarian principles.
·         Manage consultants to carry out financial and energy diaries with selected pilot participants, to gain understanding of household budgeting around energy and willingness/ability to pay for energy and financial services.
·         Manage consultants to carry out user experience research, yielding insights about refugee and host community reactions and response to PAYG energy products and solar power solutions.
·         Conduct digital literacy pilots with PAYG users, evaluating approaches to increase digital literacy.
Learning, Knowledge Management and Strategy
·         Proactively share learning and progress with regional and Technical Support Unit (TSU) leadership through bi-monthly email updates and other mechanisms identified by TSU and regional leadership.
·         Develop a clear vision and strategy for subsequent expansion of Mercy Corps’ market-based programming, including identification of other sectors and products that could benefit West Nile host and refugee communities.
·         Liaise with relevant stakeholders including the SCC, government ministries, donor organizations, humanitarian clusters, local NGOs, project partners, and community members to ensure support for and acceptance of Mercy Corps’ activities.
·         Facilitate the compilation of lessons learned following the first round of pilots and market testing, to share with global Mercy Corps and Power Africa Uganda Accelerator, to improve future programming around PAYG energy and frontier finance work.
