Evaluation Specialist (Multi-Country) - P4

Panama, Panamá, Panama - UNICEF
Nonprofit/Community/Social Services
Other

  UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.   For every child, equity Evaluation is a key function in UNICEF. Evaluation in UNICEF serves interrelated purposes in support of the organization's mandate. It supports learning and decision-making, which in turn support better results for children. Evaluation also helps to hold UNICEF accountable for contributing to results for children, or for not doing so. Supports the development of national evaluation capacity, undertaken in collaboration with Member States and entities of the United Nations system, which should enhance the provision of timely evidence at the country level on the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals and the fulfilment of the rights of all children. UNICEF country programmes in Latin America and the Caribbean are typically designed to create the most appropriate enabling environment, through supporting adequate child-rights based policies and programmes and promoting legal frameworks in line with international rights-based standards and improving learning and capacity of government institutions. Piloting and modelling are implemented in the field to create evidence and engage local partners to identify solutions for children to be replicated or scaled up. In addition, UNICEF is frequently invited to provide top-expert advice on child-related policies. This type of efforts is complex and highly demanding in terms of time, investment and capacity, considering that it usually requires an inter-sectoral approach to address key systemic barriers that impede the full realization of children's rights. This remains a challenge to demonstrate results that can be directly attributed to UNICEF and measure the actual contribution of UNICEF to high-level results. The evaluation function in UNICEF LAC aims at helping to improve its performance and results, by supporting organizational learning and accountability. UNICEF LAC seeks to enhance the strategic role of Evaluations to understanding the context in which advocacy, policy advice, models and scaled up pilots can reach results at scale. For more information on UNICEF LAC Regional Office visit the website: [https://www.unicef.org/lac/ ](https://www.unicef.org/lac/)   How can you make a difference?

Monitoring / Evaluation and Reporting Analyst - P2

Central African Republic, Bangui, Bangui - United Nations Development Programme
Nonprofit/Community/Social Services
Other

  Background   The Central African Republic has succeeded in reaching the end of the political transition through the holding of Presidential and legislative elections in 2016 that saw the establishment of a democratically elected Government and the return to Constitutional order. The end of the transition now paves the way for socio-economic recovery as envisaged in the recently adopted national recovery and peace consolidation plan (RCPCA 2017-2021).   Citizens of the Central African Republic aspire to peace, reconciliation and long-term sustainable development. However, the lack of a durable action on disarmament of armed groups, the proliferation of small arms and light weapons, the fragile social fabric in which women are marginalised, the lack of economic opportunity and high unemployment coupled with the absence of the State in large parts of the country and the weak security and justice infrastructure combine to make the naturally wealthy State of the Central African Republic incapable of harnessing its natural resources for the benefit of the population and very vulnerable to renewed violence. In response to this, UNDP has developed and is implementing two projects entitled "Project for supporting sustainable income generating activities of vulnerable people" and "Project for social stabilisation and prevention of radicalisation and violent Extremism in CAR". The projects aim at creating resilience and socio-economic stabilisation for people and communities by providing enabling environment which allows vulnerable persons especially youth at risk (including IDPs and ex-combatants) to develop their income generating activities. The project also aims at offering training skills and knowledge to develop their business so that they will be able to have access to sustainable income. These activities also prevent emergence of Violent extremism which has already imminent threat in the country.   In line with this, UNDP CAR is recruiting a monitoring/evaluation and reporting analyst to ensure the quality monitoring/evaluation report.     Duties and Responsibilities   Within the delegated authority and under the supervision of Programme Specialist or his/her designated mandated representative(s), the incumbent will: - Provide technical advice to project management and staff to support the process of planning and monitoring of the project and work plans to ensure the development of an effective M&E framework; - Support the management of evaluations of the effects and other assessments at the level of the Inclusive Growth programme; - Conduct reporting needs assessments, maintain a reporting calendar and ensure that programme and donor-funded project reporting processes are systemized; - Assist the Programme Specialist in the quality control of regular project reports to ensure consistency with results frameworks; - Ensure that progress reports are results-oriented and submitted on time; - Provide feedback to project team and ensure that results and lessons learned feed into the team's analytical and project work (e.g. into decision-making process); - In liaison with project managers and CO M&E managers, verify data quality in the Atlas Project Management Module; - Provide technical advice to the project for profiling of beneficiaries and quantitative survey; - In collaboration with the M&E officer of the other units and projects, contribute to the collection and analysis of data on the effects; And more specifically: - Ensure the design of a sound monitoring and evaluation framework aligned towards the measurement of programmes results chains (from activities to outcomes); - Design data collection protocols, and associated tools, and ensure/support their ownership by programmes staff and other M&E staff involved in other provinces; - Collaborate with colleagues involved in the programmes to design measurement approaches for profiling survey, training activities, awareness raising activities and institutional support; - Assist the programme coordinator by ensuring quality control over internal and external reporting requirements; - Support the design a sound methodological approach (sample and data collection protocols) for judicial monitoring activities; - Prepare questionnaires and quantitative survey on profiling of beneficiaries; - Provide regular update and input in monitoring of project activities, to assess overall project implementation with respect to project objectives, outputs and indicators; - Provide effective troubleshooting, suggestion for corrective measures to be undertaken, and make arrangements of technical assistance to implementing partners based on results of monitoring, where necessary; - Ensure that timely reporting arrangements are in place and being implemented to ensure that the reporting requirements are met in a timely manner; - Draft ‘human interest stories' of persons impacted by UNDP supported programming; - Provide guidance to implementing partner and serves as focal point for M&R in line with UNDP monitoring and reporting policies, procedures and practices; - Showcase to external stakeholders on progress made and impacts delivered; - Any other related tasks as may be required or assigned by the supervisor.   IMPACT OF RESULTS : - Project and donor reports are ensured in proper and timely manner. - Reports include: - Consolidated Result Oriented Reports; - Consolidated Project Annual Reports; - Donor-specific reports that are required by donor agreements; - Reporting with Lessons learned from the field; - Ad hoc reporting requests as required. - Effective and strategic donor relations are maintained/improved, and UNDP partnerships are promoted through engaging, innovative, and informative reporting - Through reporting, donors and the Government have access to and are aware of project progress, and understand opportunities and challenges; - Strategic support is provided to CO evaluation and communications Team - Program/Project Team works are improved with technical assistance through sharing lessons learned     Competencies   V.
