The Confidence Building Early Response Mechanism (COBERM) is a joint EU-UNDP initiative, which aims to sustain and further enhance an enabling environment for reconciliation within and across divided communities in Georgia, to promote inclusive peace, stability and human security.
Implemented in three phases during 2010-2018, IV phase of the Programme was launched in 2019 with the duration of 3 years and pursues the following objectives:
Currently, COBERM continues to provide a neutral ground for addressing the prevailing needs of the local communities, including post-conflict isolation and low capacities, as well as for the development of new approaches to peace and confidence building.
Through its grant programme, COBERM supports initiatives of local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in a wide range of areas aiming to pursue sustainable peace.
Through the decade long extensive experience local civil society organizations developed an evidence-based know-how on restoring relations between the conflict divides through tangible joint initiatives, resulting in enhanced trust and confidence, and thus contributing to building peace. While, worldwide successful cases in the field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation are increasing continuously, learning from international best practices and lessons learned would be of significant value.
In this context, in order to build the capacity of COBERM partner organizations and enable them to gain new perspectives and out-of-the-box vision on building peace, COBERM seeks professional expertise in peacebuilding and conflict transformation, with the special focus on Women, Peace and Security (WPS).

The trainer will work under overall supervision of the COBERM Team, and will directly report to National Project Coordinators in Tbilisi and Sukhumi.
The scope of the current assignment will be diverse and will aim to provide:

Required Skills and Experience
Individual consultants will be evaluated based on a cumulative analysis (technical and financial). Technical evaluation consists of desk review and interview. Maximum total obtainable score is 100, out of which the total score for technical criteria (desk review and interview) equals to 70 and for financial criteria – to 30. Offerors not meeting any of the minimum qualification requirements will be disqualified. Those offerors who pass 70% threshold (28 points) as a result of the desk review will be invited for the interview. Those offerors who pass 70% threshold (21 points) as a result of the interview will be invited to submit financial proposals.
The financial proposal shall specify a total lump sum. Payments are based upon delivery of the services specified in the TOR. All envisaged travel costs must be included in the financial proposal. This includes all travel to join duty station/repatriation travel. In general, UNDP does not accept travel costs exceeding those of an economy class ticket. Should the IC wish to travel on a higher class he/she should do so using their own resources. In order, to assist the requesting unit in the comparison of financial proposals, the financial proposal will include a breakdown of this lump sum amount. Maximum 30 points will be assigned to the lowest price offer. All other price offers will be scored using the formula (inverse proportion): Financial score X = 30* the lowest price offer/suggested price offer. All envisaged travel costs must be included in the financial proposal as well. The award of the contract will be made to the individual consultant with the highest scores based on desk review, interview and financial evaluation.
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
