Program Adviser for Early Recovery and Rehabilitation Team under the Social Healing and Peacebuilding Program for Marawi City

Component 4 of the Support to Peacebuilding and Normalization [SPAN] Project

(Individual Contractor- Open to Nationals)



The Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GPH), through the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP), has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to implement a project entitled “Support to Peacebuilding and Normalization” (SPAN). SPAN aims to contribute towards sustaining the gains of the Government’s peace process, and in ensuring peace and security in conflict-affected areas by (a) accelerating the implementation of the security and socio-economic aspects of the Normalization Annex of the GPH-Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) and (b) strengthening the enabling environment for peace, recovery and development.

SPAN is composed of four (4) components: (1) Component 1: Support to the Implementation of the Security Aspect of Normalization, (2) Component 2: Support to the Implementation of the Socio-Economic Aspect of Normalization, (3) Component 3: Strengthening the Enabling Environment for Peace, Recovery and Development, and (4) Component 4: Social Healing and Peacebuilding Programme for Marawi.

Relative to the Marawi siege which led to the destruction of homes and livelihoods, the displacement of families and communities, and the erosion of social stability, OPAPP embarked on the Social Healing and Peace Building Program targeting 20 municipalities and 76 evacuation centers that hosted over a thousand internally-displaced persons (IDPs) in the provinces of Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte. Initiatives under the program would initially start in the four (4) evacuation centers and three (3) host communities in Iligan City to model social healing and peace building interventions. The result of the modeling exercise will be replicated to the other municipalities in the two provinces of Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte.

The SPAN Programme will contribute to the comprehensive approach in rebuilding Marawi through support for the implementation of OPAPP’s Social Healing and Peacebuilding Programme, which aims to: promote healing, reconciliation and bridging of social divides; mainstream conflict sensitive and peace promoting approaches in recovery and reconstruction efforts; and address emerging issues and concerns from the impact of the conflict including preventing and countering violent extremism and the protection of the rights of internally displaced people, women, children and other vulnerable sectors.

The Social Healing and Peace Building Programme for Marawi City has six (6) major components that include the following:

  • Component 1: Peace Building Needs Assessment and Planning
  • Component 2: Social Healing and Peace Building
  • Component 3: Conflict Sensitive Peace Promotion (CSPP) Mainstreaming
  • Component 4: Countering/Preventing Violent Extremism
  • Component 5: Transitional Socio-Economic Support for IDPs and Vulnerable Groups
  • Component 6: Project Management

To support the implementation of the different components of the Social Healing and Peacebuilding Programme for Marawi City, qualified personnel will need to be engaged to provide technical, administrative and operational support for the various initiatives under each component.


The Program Adviser will perform the following functions:

  • Closely coordinate with a team in OPAPP to ensure the delivery of required output/outcomes under Component 4 (ERR Project) of the SPAN Programme
