Final Evaluation of the Community resilience and coping with climate change and natural disasters in Vanuatu Project

Job Description:
The UNICEF Pacific office is looking to engage a consultant to document the achievements, constraints, challenges and lessons learned of the Project.  The evaluation is being carried out at this time as the project has been completed. 

The overall responsibility for commissioning the evaluation will be led by UNICEF in consultation with an Evaluation Reference Group with representatives from each of the agencies involved in the Project including the Vanuatu Department of Local Authority, UNICEF, UNDP and FAO.  The Evaluation Reference Group is responsible for quality assurance of the evaluation and will be formally consulted in regards to the Inception Report and Final Report (please see work schedule below), including all relevant provisions regarding ethical standards.

The consultancy is to carry out this evaluation of the Project in relation to the 10 project site area councils targeted since the MTR.  It is expected to cover Project components implemented by UNICEF, UNDP, FAO and the Government of Vanuatu.  It should consider the entire time frame of the project from 2011 to 2015.  Fieldwork should be carried out at appropriate locations.  Locations worst affected by Tropical Cyclone Pam, in particular on Tanna, should not be considered for field work as those communities are still recovering.  However, as there is anecdotal reporting that communities that engaged with the project were more resilient to Cyclone Pam, efforts should be made to consult with moderately affected communities.

UNICEF is committed to diversity and inclusion within its workforce, and encourages qualified female and male candidates from all nationals, religious and ethnic backgrounds, including persons living with disabilities, to apply to become a part of our organisation.
