Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist - P3

Afghanistan, Kabul, Kabul - UNICEF

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, Education! Working for UNICEF: https://youtu.be/43aiG4w2q_M?t=2  UNICEF in Afghanistan:  https://www.unicef.org/afghanistan/      How can you make a difference? Background The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does ? in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life ? in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions ? her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society's most disadvantaged citizens ? addressing inequity ? not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations. Afghanistan's education system has been severely strained by chronic conflicts and recovery of service delivery has been affected by recurrent natural shocks. Public schools do not have enough capacity and reach to absorb all children and provide them access to education both in quantity and quality terms. As a result, about one third of school-age children are out-of-school (4,2 million) of whom 60% reported to be girls, with substantial disparities among provinces. In areas like Kandahar, Uruzgan, Helmand, Zabul, Paktika, and Wardak as many as 85% of girls are reported out-of-school. Children are out of school for multiple reasons such as conflict, poverty, damaged and inadequate supply of classrooms, shortage of teachers (especially female teachers), insufficient relevant learning and teaching resources, lack of inclusive facilities at schools, cultural norms which de-prioritize education for girls, and long travel distances to schools. Continuity of education is another significant problem, with many girls and boys unable to progress from one stage of study to the next, largely due to capacity limitations in the nearest formal schools to the location where they are receiving community-based education. Conflict has deprived Afghan children of access to education in situations where their schools are occupied or damaged in fighting, when parents withdraw their children due to insecurity, or because of overcrowding due to displacement/returnee influxes. Furthermore, the current situation, aggravated by two interrupted school years due to COVID-19 restrictions has now severely exacerbated the challenges faced by the education sector as a whole as well as children and families and put the education of over 9,5 mln children, but in particularly of the almost 4 mln girls in school at risk. More than ever, adequate and structured monitoring of the situation on the ground is key to effective and efficient program design.     Duties & Responsibilities  Lead the development of Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) framework and plans for UNICEF projects and programs: - Establish, maintain and strengthen Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) framework and plan for UNICEF education projects and programme summarizing monitoring and evaluation objectives, priorities, and activities for effective programme implementation - Develop M&E tools to facilitate data collection, monitoring and reporting on the progress of the education program implementation in close collaboration with unit managers and implementing partners and extenders - Collaborate with partners and extenders to implement innovative M&E approaches to showcase the impact of education projects and programmes on education and learning outcomes of children. - Support implementing partners M&E activities and ensure harmonization/alignment and comparability of M&E systems across partners. - Develop and maintain a database of projects and programme outputs, activities and achieved results to provide information for both internal and external reporting. - Establish accountability to affected populations (AAP) framework for education projects and programmes and support implementing partners in its implementation. - Ensure alignment and comparability of education projects M&E framework and plans with stakeholders including the Ministry of Education (MoE), Education in Emergencies Working Group (EiEWG), donors and implementing partners.

Short-term Consultant: Enhancement of Vulnerability Assessment Framework

Syrian Arab Republic, Damascus City, Remote - Caritas Schweiz

Doing the right thing. We are active in Switzerland and 20 countries on four continents. Join us with a commitment to help us bring about a more caring society, as Short-term Consultant: Enhancement of Vulnerability Assessment Framework Please note that this is a short version of the Terms of Reference (ToR) for this assignment. The full version incl. application procedure can be found here: Terms of Reference The severe humanitarian crisis in Syria has resulted in a substantial decrease of capacity for the population to meet basic assistance needs, which represents the predominant entry point for CACH. According to the UN, the estimated remittances of $1.6 billion sent to Syria each year have reduced by up to 50 percent in 2020. With the relative improvement of the security situation in GoS, the need for public service delivery has surged as well. Access to education, therefore, represents the second entry point for CACH's assistance, as only half of the Syrian schools are functioning compared to the pre-crisis situation. Access to school is also hindered by basic assistance needs, as families often need to choose between the consumption of existential goods or sending their children to school. A third entry point for CACH is related to the widespread depleting of income opportunities. Many economic sectors have been negatively affected by the depletion of productive assets and savings, limited economic opportunities and the widespread destruction and contamination of agriculture-related infrastructures.  In the absence of a harmonised national approach, CACH and Caritas Syria developed a basic vulnerability scoring system which relies on data collected via a household survey. CACH seeks to develop a broader vulnerability assessment system based on a list of objective and quantifiable indicators of the socioeconomic vulnerability of Syrians. The study must enable CACH and its partners to:  - Improve understanding of the profile of socio-economic vulnerability of Syrian households in Rural Damascus, Homs and Aleppo.  - Establish a more effective and efficient vulnerability assessment framework based on a robust understanding of multi-dimensional vulnerability in line with the context in the targeted location(s).   Deliverables and Timeframe The assignment shall indicatively be conducted between October and December 2021 and should be completed within a maximum of 40 working days.
