SmartResponse Background: Natural and humanitarian disasters are increasingly prevalent. Donations are delayed, diverted, and do not reach intended beneficiaries. Despite overwhelming response from donors worldwide, billions of dollars do not reach disaster survivors because the international community lacks a way to quickly identify and support locally operating, high-impact organizations in real time during a crisis. Local organizations on the front-line of COVID-19 and other disasters typically receive as little as 3% of donations made after disasters. In contrast, 97% of every donation using SmartResponse can reach local efforts. SmartResponse.org incentivizes transparency, as organizations must share information to get listed.
Outcomes: SmartResponse will serve as a global resource for donors, allowing donations to be made directly to local, on-the-ground organizations. SmartResponse will also collect and share additional information on organizations’ response, relief, and recovery activities after disasters happen at scale.
Scope: SmartResponse is looking for an experienced Consultant to lead the execution of the following strategic priorities:
Develop a sustainable business model for the platform in ways that enable monetization
Spearhead initiatives to help scale the platform’s membership of registered organizations to 2,000 by the end of 2021
Engage external audiences to promote the adoption of SmartResponse for post-disaster giving
4-year degree in a relevant field
2+ years of experience in management consulting, or strategy/business development
Experience using analytics and analysis to inform key business decisions
Role Duration: 7-10 hours/week for at least 6 months
To Apply, please send Resume/CV to: email@example.com. Thank you!
Disaster Accountability Project saves lives and reduces suffering after disasters by maximizing the impact of preparedness, response and relief through citizen oversight and engagement, policy research and advocacy, and public education.
DAP is the leading nonprofit organization that provides long-term independent oversight of disaster management systems.
DAP engages a dedicated community to advance policy research and advocacy, promote transparency, and encourage the public to participate in oversight, community-based organizing, and discussions about disaster preparedness and relief.
Dedicated citizen oversight is necessary to ensure resources dedicated to preparedness, relief, and recovery are effectively utilized, communities are sufficiently engaged and more resilient, and best practices and lessons learned are implemented so mistakes are not repeated.
Prior to the creation of the Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), there was no dedicated, independent oversight of the agencies and organizations responsible for these critical life-saving responsibilities.
We provide independent oversight and data collection in Disasters.
