Knowledge Management is a central component of the Spotlight Initiative in Afghanistan. The objectives of the Knowledge Management Strategy will be: 1) to increase awareness and understanding of the SI’s implementation and impact in Afghanistan; (2) to communicate and share good practices and lessons that emerge through the implementation of the SI interventions (3) to generate local, context-specific knowledge on ‘what works’ and ‘what does not work’ to be shared on regional and global virtual knowledge platforms and (4) to strengthen women’s rights groups’, civil society groups’, and government’s capacity to generate, disseminate and use EVAWG knowledge.

As such, the Communications and Knowledge Management Officer (CKMO) will be responsible for leading and managing the following activities in keeping with the Knowledge Management Framework to be developed:

  • Knowledge capture: Collate the evidence-base on Spotlight Pillars from existing national and global resources and conduct a situation analysis to improve understanding of EVAWG in the country
  • Address knowledge gaps: Support the design of activities to specifically meet identified knowledge gaps
  • Monitoring and Evaluation lessons learned: Working with the M&E and Reporting Advisor, strategize how to identify and share innovative, context-specific monitoring and evaluation strategies of all Spotlight activities to determine ‘what works’ and ‘what does not work’. This knowledge will be shared on regional and global knowledge platforms to encourage peer support, collaborative problem-solving and strategizing, and the sharing of tools and other resources.
  • Dissemination and Public Engagement: In coordination with the Senior Coordination Officer and the RCO’s Communications and Advocacy Officer, communicate and share good practices and lessons that emerge through the implementation of the SI interventions and establish participatory mechanisms with multiple stakeholders to continually assess and discuss what works and what does not.

Produce knowledge products and ensure that products (such as the baseline reports, mid-term reviews, etc.), are disseminated through various levels and platforms.

Develop a Knowledge Management Strategy, focusing on (i) identifying knowledge gaps by assessing and undertaking a mapping of existing knowledge management activities, guidelines and tools within the RCO and the RUNOs; (ii) expanding flow of knowledge and information on Spotlight; (iii) contributing to and sharing best practices and knowledge; (iv) effectively communicating and liaising with all RUNO agencies to integrate knowledge management in their systems and processes; and (v) ensuring a constant and consistent flow of information gathered on the quality of the SI including human interest/life changing stories.

S/He will work closely with the RCO’s Communication and Advocacy Officer and Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Officer, to build the data processes and generate information on the SI and its linkage to other ongoing UN initiatives in Afghanistan.S/He will also work closely with the Communications/Knowledge Management focal points within the RUNOs to ensure cohesive messaging and data exchange.
