Job Centre : Consultant Evaluation of the ‘Emergency Assistance to Internally Displaced Women and Girls and Survivors of SGBV in Nigeria – (2016-2017)’

Published

Location :
Abuja, NIGERIA
Application Deadline :
23-Oct-18 (Midnight New York, USA)

Post Level :
National Consultant
Languages Required :
English
Starting Date :
(date when the selected candidate is expected to start)
01-Nov-2018

Background

The North-East Nigeria has witnessed unprecedented violent conflict orchestrated by frequent insurgence. This has resulted to widespread displacement, violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, protection risks and a growing humanitarian crisis. The crisis which began in 2009, have resulted to the death of more than 20,000 people, over 2,000 women and girls have been abducted and 2.5 million people have fled their homes, of whom 2.2 million are internally displaced, and 177,000 are seeking refuge in the neighboring countries of Cameroon, Chad and Niger.
In the second half of 2015, reports show that more than two-third of internally displaced persons (IDPs) were made up of women and children suggesting that women and children constitute the largest proportion of IDPs in Adamawa, Bauchi, and Gombe States.
Women and girls in particular face grave threats and are affected in various ways, ranging from direct killings and injuries, of becoming victims of sexual violence, of being separated from their families, of being recruited and used as operatives in suicide attacks, and suffering extreme distress, egregious physical and psychological abuse to more subtle, yet persistent and irreversible effects on schooling, health, nutrition, future opportunities and overall well-being.

Duties and Responsibilities

UN Women Response
UN Women received support from the Government of Japan to implement the “Emergency Assistance to Internally Displaced Women and Girls and Survivors of Boko Haram Terrorism Attacks in Nigeria” (2016-2017) in the three most affected states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe where about 7 million people needed humanitarian assistance, with 80% of them being women and children.
Through this project, UN Women prioritized the reinforcement and the integration of gender into humanitarian response in the three most affected states in Nigeria with an explicit focus of targeting women and girls, especially in a context in which they have such a crucial status.
The intervention focused on filling critical gender gaps in the on-going humanitarian response activities in three areas: (a) Strengthen emergency assistance initiatives to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) women/girls and survivors of SGBV in target areas; (b) Improve the economic capacity and social rehabilitation of women affected by crisis for peaceful cohabitation in target areas and (c) Strengthen humanitarian coordination mechanisms for a more comprehensive and gender-responsive approach in Nigeria.
In line with the project objectives and expected outcomes, UN Women conducted a baseline survey on the socio-economic status of women and girls affected by insurgency in the three states, serving as a framework for the project.
Purpose and use of Evaluation
The evaluation will serve a dual and mutually reinforcing learning and accountability purpose as it provides an opportunity to (i) consolidate learning from what worked and what could be done differently in improving emergency assistance to internally displaced women and girls and survivors of SGBV; and (ii) offer evidence-informed recommendations geared towards building gender-sensitive assistance in IDP camps and host communities, including access to skills acquisitions and improved livelihoods. The evaluation is also expected to identify the internal and external enabling factors and challenges to Nigeria CO’s performance on emergency response in such a complex environment.
UN Women Nigeria, the government of Japan and relevant partners in Nigeria will be the prime users of this evaluation. The evaluation will also be used to inform the ongoing corporate Thematic Evaluation of UN Women’s Contribution to Humanitarian Action and will inform and influence strategies, priorities, approaches, decisions and actions needed to scale-up and sustain an effective gender responsive intervention in crisis situation.
Objective
The specific objectives of the evaluation are to:
Assess the relevance and contributions of the interventions to the humanitarian agenda in Nigeria;
Assess effectiveness and organizational efficiency in progressing towards the achievement of GEWE in humanitarian action;
Identify intervention gaps, lessons learned, good practices and examples of innovation that could be replicated or used to inform future projects;
Propose relevant recommendations based on the evaluation results and outcomes to UN Women’s humanitarian action in Nigeria; and
Assess how the human rights-based approach and gender equality principles are integrated into the work in humanitarian action.
Evaluation Questions
The evaluation will seek to answer the following key evaluation questions.
Relevance / Appropriateness[1]
To what extent has UN Women’s emergency assistance to Internally Displaced Women and Girls and Survivors of SGBV project adapted to identified humanitarian needs?
To what extent has UN Women’s response been appropriate in the context of the needs and priorities of the affected populations, particularly those left furthest behind in humanitarian contexts?
To what extent was UN Women’s NGN office able to adapt its strategies and project to respond to changes in the context?
Effectiveness
To what extent did UN Women Nigeria Office interventions reach the population groups with greatest need for increased access to adequate survivor services and holistic emergency assistance to IDP’s women and girls and survivors of SGBV in the host communities?
To what extent did the UN Women response contribute to economic recovery of women and girls IDPs and their vulnerable host communities?
To what extent has UN Women Nigeria Office contributed to having more women play a greater role and being better served by emergency assistance?
What are enabling and limiting factors that contribute to the achievement of results and what actions need to be taken to overcome any barriers that limit the progress?
Efficiency
To what extent has UN Women’s institutional arrangements, operational mechanisms and financial resources advanced an effective and efficient response?
To what extent did UN Women make good use of its human, financial and technical resources, as well as of different partnerships in pursuing the achievement of the results expected from its emergency response?
Does the project complement the activities of other thematic areas embedded in the Nigeria CO Strategic Note and build on synergies with them?
Has the project build synergies with other programmes being implemented at country level with the United Nations and the Government of Nigeria?
To what extent is UN Women NGN contributing to making coordination mechanisms on emergency response more gender-sensitive?
Connectedness[2] and Sustainability
To what extent did UN Women NGN Office humanitarian activities support, and plan for, longer-term (across the humanitarian-development-peace continuum) goals of the project?
Was the assistance provided in a way that took account of the longer-term context?
To what extent has UN Women enhanced national and local ownership to strengthen the resilience of communities?
Gender Equality and Human Rights
To what extent does the humanitarian action work undertaken by UN Women address the underlying causes of inequality and discrimination?
To what extent were a human rights based approach and gender equality incorporated in the design and implementation of the project?

The evaluators are encouraged to further analyze stakeholders according to the following characteristics:
System roles (target groups, programme controllers, sources of expertise, and representatives of excluded groups);
Gender roles (intersections of sex, age, household roles, community roles);
Human Rights roles (rights holders, principal duty bearers, primary, secondary and tertiary duty bearers);
Intended users and uses of the respective evaluation.
The evaluators are encouraged to extend this analysis through mapping relationships and power dynamics as part of the evaluation. It is important to pay particular attention to participation of rights holders—in particular women and vulnerable and marginalized groups—to ensure the application of a gender-responsive approach. It is also important to specify ethical safeguards that will be employed. The evaluators are expected to validate findings through engagement with stakeholders at stakeholder workshops, debriefings or other forms of engagement.
Stakeholders and Stakeholder participation
The primary stakeholders of the evaluation are the implementing and collaborative partners: UN Women, the federal ministry of women affairs and social development (FMWA&SD), State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development (Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno and Gombe states), National Center for Women Development (NCWD, National and state Emergency Management Agency (NEMA/SEMA), UNOCHA. UNFPA, FAO, relevant CSOs; Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), E-Way for Development (Women and Youths Environmental Safety and Empowerment Organization) IANSA – (International Action Network on Small Arms) Women Network Nigeria, women groups; and Association for the Advancement of Women in Nigeria (ASSAWIN).
Evaluation Approach and Scope
The evaluation will be a transparent and participatory process involving relevant UN Women stakeholders and partners both at the central and sub-regional level where the project was implemented. It will be based on gender and human rights principles, as defined in the UN Women Evaluation Policy and adhere to the UN norms and standards for evaluation in the UN System.
The evaluation methodology will be based on mixed methods and will deploy a variety of evaluation techniques ranging from desk review, interviews, surveys, observation and other participatory methods. Efforts will be made to capture and document real voices of women and girls and marginalized groups.
The evaluation should adopt a flexible approach given the complex nature of the interventions. An important component of this evaluation will be the assessment of the project results logic and approach. Based on the results of the baseline survey already commissioned and the implicit ToC articulated in the project document, the evaluation team will reconstruct a theory of change during the inception phase of the evaluation. The evaluation should also look into the synergy with other projects/programmes implemented by UN Women and other partners.
The evaluation will be carried out in the implementation states (Borno, Adamawa and Yobe) and the federal capital. The project will cover the period 2016-2017.
Data Collection & Methodology and Scope
The detailed methodology for the evaluation will be developed and validated with the CO and relevant stakeholders at the onset of the evaluation and will build on the following methodologies for collecting and triangulating data.

Evaluation team composition
A qualified evaluation expert is required to undertake the evaluation. The consultant will is expected to have significant experience in designing and conducting gender responsive evaluation and experience on humanitarian evaluation. The consultants will be expected to work with the UN Women Evaluation focal persons in country and the UN IES Evaluation Specialist to agree implementation of the evaluation processes. The national consultant will lead the development of the inception report, data collection, translations analysis and drafting of the report.
The IES Evaluation Specialist will also take part in the data collection, quality assurance of the entire evaluation process as well as assisting the consultants in the write-up of the final report. The national consultants will support the evaluation team in collecting the required data
The estimated number of person-days required for national consultant is 40 days spread over four months period.
[1] Relevance and appropriateness are complementary criteria often used in HA evaluation. “Appropriateness focuses on the extent to which an intervention is tailored to local needs and context, and compliments other interventions from other actors. It includes how well the intervention takes into account the economic, social, political and environmental context, thus contributing to ownership, accountability, and cost-effectiveness.” http://www.ifrc.org/Global/Publications/monitoring/IFRC-Framework-for-Evaluation.pdf
[2] In evaluating humanitarian interventions which are not designed to be sustainable, connectedness is often used instead of sustainability as an evaluation criterion. As defined by Minear (1994) connectedness assesses whether activities of a short-term emergency nature are carried out in a context which takes longer-term and inter-connected problems into account. – https://evaluation.msf.org/sites/evaluation/files/evaluation_of_humanitarian_action.pdf

ENTER NIGERIA Winning Sunday with The Young Netpreneur for the Week :Ken Nwadiogbu @kennwadio

 

Ken Nwadiogbu (b. 1994) is a Nigerian born Multidisciplinary Artist, popularly known as KenArt, whose practice is primarily centered around hyper-realistic drawings and works on paper.
Nwadiogbu believes that the society speaks- This voice inspires his art, which evaluates, interrogates and challenges socio-political structures and issues within the society. In his reply to this society, he is able to inspire one or two people to also re-valuate their socio-political structures as we know it. The desire to change his society and the way people think is what drives him to create art every day. Gender equality, African cultures, and Black power are a few aspects of his current research and artistic practice.
Nwadiogbu was born in Lagos, Nigeria and holds a B.Sc in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. His art career started in the university, and with no formal training, has pushed him to become one of the most interesting young contemporary artists from Nigeria, creating works that question life- calling out some of the problems and becoming very grounded in human consciousness..
Nwadiogbu has been featured in lots of local and international group exhibitions and fairs, including the Insanity exhibition, sponsored by Frot Foundation, in Omenka Gallery, Nigeria; the TMC’s It’s Not Furniture, curated by Winifred Okpapi; the Artyrama’s group exhibition curated by Mr Jess Castellote; Art X Lagos, sponsored by Artyrama Gallery, in Lagos, Nigeria; the Moniker Art Fair, sponsored by Creative Debuts, in Brooklyn, NYC; the Anti-Trump show organised in UK; the Afriuture Exhibition by Ramati Art Africa in association with Commonwealth Africa Summit, in Toronto, Canada; amongst many others. He has been televised and publicized on different platforms like Guardian Life, Tush Magazine, WIRED Magazine, Candid Magazine, Bored Panda, BBC, CNN, and more as well as inspiring and encouraging young creatives through public speaking appearances like TEDx. He co-founded Artists Connect NG, the largest Nigerian artist gathering that took place at Lekki Leisure Lake, in Lagos, Nigeria.
To Nwadiogbu, Art is indeed timeless, it is his solace and hiding place, a safe haven he has found to be devoid of restrictions, boxes and boundaries.
