    Organization: Norwegian People's Aid
    Country: Iraq
    Closing date: 15 Jul 2018

    Background:

    Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is the Norwegian labour movement’s humanitarian organisation for solidarity. NPA’s goal is to support human worth and equal rights for all, irrespective of sex, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual preference or social status. The NPA vision is solidarity in practice. The vision demands commitment and action to protect life and health, build democratic societies and strengthen people’s ability to master their own lives. NPA is politically independent but not a politically neutral organisation. NPA takes a clear position in important social debates and the goal of a more just world means that NPA often chooses partners that may be opposed to, or in conflict with, those in power. NPA believes that popular participation and organisation are important measures in securing human rights and giving people greater influence over their own lives and social development.

    This terms of reference (ToR) outlines specifications for a mid-term evaluation of the project “Improving Democratizations and Human Rights in Iraq 2016-2019” funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad).

    Key project goal, objectives and outcomes:

    The goal of the four-year project is to strengthen the democratisation process in Iraq. This will be achieved through supporting civil society organisations in Iraq to advocate with Kurdistan Parliament and the 18 Provincial Councils in Iraq to involve the public and civil society in their decision making, planning and further to advocate towards the Iraqi government to apply the Iraqi National Plan for Human Rights (NAPHR) focusing on: prisoners’ rights, economic and social rights, labour law, minority rights and the right to work and freedom to organise unions.”

    Specific objective 1:

    Provincial Councils:

    • Outcome: To enable 16 Provincial Councils effectively and efficiently practice the notion of participation with their constituents, including civil society organizations, in making and taking decisions at the provincial levels during a-three and half year.

    • Outcome: The Iraqi government to adopt the 178 recommendations of the UPR by having a plan and delegate roles and commitments on the relevant parties.

    Kurdistan Parliament:

    • Outcome: The parliament in the Kurdish Region engages with civil society regularly and systematically to address key issues identified as important to civil society.

    • Outcome: The Kurdistan Gov. prioritise rights, respond effectively and transparently to the needs and priorities of its citizens.

    Specific Objective 2:

    Prisoners’ rights:

    • Outcome: To improve the human rights condition of prisoners and detainees throughout Iraqi prisons, detention and transforming centres to ensure the justice system in Iraq complies with the international standards and existing Iraqi laws.

    Minorities rights:

    • Outcome: To ensure that minorities and their rights are fully respected throughout Iraq.

    • Outcome: Legal protection for minorities in Iraq to ensure that relevant authorities on minority issues have adequate executive powers for consensus building.

    Labour rights and syndications:

    • Outcome: To influence change in the Iraqi legislation towards increased compliance with key National Action Plan for Human Rights recommendations concerning economic and social rights, labour law and the right to work and freedom of union organization.

    Project target areas: The project targets all the 18 governorates of Iraq.

    Scope of the evaluation:

    The overall purpose of this mid-term evaluation is to assess to what extent NPA is on its way in terms of achieving the defined outcomes or whether adjustments are needed.

    The five main objectives of this midterm project-level evaluation are:

    o To reflect on project progress, achievements and change achieved considering the baseline survey which was conducted in 2016;

    o To assess relevance of the project;

    o To reflect on the NPA model of working in local partnerships with civil society organizations to achieve project objectives;

    o To assess the effectiveness of the methodologies applied by NPA and its partners; and

    o To suggest key practical targeted recommendations and learning to be considered by NPA in particular inform with practical recommendations the continuation and further implementation of the current project and provide a basis for decision making on necessary amendments and improvements.

    The mid-term evaluation will assess early signs of project success or failure; both intended and unintended positive and negative trends will be assessed. The mid-term evaluation report will further provide the basis for NPA decision-making with regard to necessary amendments of the project.

    The consultant will assist to identify potential project design problems and identify actions that may be taken to improve project progress in the remaining period.

    Key questions:

    The areas of results to be explored are the project outputs and outcomes at immediate level (progress towards achieving results in the main project proposal and approved deviations).

    Organization: Norwegian People's Aid
    Country: Iraq
    Closing date: 21 Aug 2018

    Introduction:

    Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) founded in 1939 is the Norwegian labour movement’s humanitarian organisation for solidarity. NPA’s goal is to support human worth and equal rights for all, irrespective of sex, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual preference or social status. The NPA vision is solidarity in practice. The vision demands commitment and action to protect life and health, build democratic societies and strengthen people’s ability to master their own lives.

    Background:

    Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) began GBV emergency prevention and response activities in Kurdish region of Iraq (KRI) in January 2016 as part of the emergency response to ISIS offensive. NPA has been supporting GBV prevention and response work in Iraq since 1995 through supporting local actors conducting mainly awareness raising and advocacy work. With support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs NPA with its local partners is currently expanding its GBV prevention and response work into newly liberated areas of Nineweh governorate. NPA is also strengthening and expanding psychoeducational work for tackling social norm, attitudes and engaging men and boys. The current program is in its third year of implementation with a specific focus on supporting women civil society organizations focused on GBV and gender equality with particular attention to expanding Peer Support Groups, sensitization of men and boys and advocacy work.

    General description of Scope of Service:

    Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is seeking the services of a consultant with experience in humanitarian and development programmes in conflict-affected areas to provide capacity building to local partner civil society organizations on psychoeducational group work for addressing trauma, gender based violence and social, gender norm change.

    The main objective of the consultant is to further develop and strengthen the existing Peer Support Group activity that has been implemented in 2017 and 2018. During the pilot phase NPA has trained 16 Peer Support facilitators and ran Peer Support Groups for approximately 450 women and girls 15+ and 450 men and boys 15+. The purpose of Peer Support Group activity was not only to address the trauma of conflict affected population but specifically to create understanding of harmful social norm, GBV and gender injustice, and to promote understanding and attitudes for greater gender equality in Iraqi society sensitizing participants. The previous Peer Support Group work consisted of 8 sessions per group and based on the feedback of participants and facilitators it was decided that the duration of group work needs to be extended in particular to improve the gender transformative aspects of it, as they are more difficult to relay and require more time.

    The consultant’s main objective will be to build on existing training materials and strengthen the gender transformative aspect into context specific, relatable, fun, engaging training that can then further be replicated by facilitators themselves in the Peer Support Group setting. The consultant is tasked to recruit and capacity build a new generation of Peer support facilitators that will have good facilitation skills for meaningful, engaging, empathetic and impactful work with their communities through Peer Support Group sessions. Given past experience it is clear that the consultant needs to poses excellent facilitation skills and ability to transfer that knowledge and build facilitation capacity in the new generation of Peer Support facilitators in addition to transferring knowledge for conducting different sessions. After finalized materials and training, the future Peer support facilitators will start running first Peer Support Groups. In the first weeks of that process, the Consultant will be tasked with supervision and on-the-job coaching of facilitators to ensure that the purpose and impact of the sessions is achieved.

    The consultant will widely benefit from and build on existing training curriculum, M&E tools, training reports etc. The consultant will further develop a more context specific curriculum considering the particular context of Nineweh governorate of Iraq: almost 3 years of ISIS rule, brainwashing, radical misogyny, sexual enslavement and conflict dynamics between various communities. The project will work in different areas under authority of KRI and Government of Iraq (GoI) with various ethnic groups, focusing on Nineweh governorate.

    Being engaged in different sectors, NPA programs provide unique complementary value. Since the ISIS crisis, NPA has been working on relief projects with six local partners with extensive local knowledge and networks, enabling NPA to focus on the frontlines, accessing extremely difficult locations through strong local leaders who can negotiate and by providing solutions to seemingly intractable problems. NPA has also built strong networks with the Iraqi Security and Peshmerga Forces, the tribal militias and the Iraqi Federal Police, that enables NPA and the local partners information and access to the newly retaken but secure areas whilst providing security of the distribution site and crowd control.

    In 2017, NPA received fund from DG ECHO to provide emergency food assistance to conflict affected families in West Mosul, and has successfully distributed to 6,500 families in the hard-to-reach neighbourhoods in West Mosul for the duration of 5 months. Building from the success of this project, NPA proposed an additional 12 month intervention in conflict affected communities in newly retaken areas in West Anbar, Ninewa, Salahadin and Kirkuk as well as 16 prisons

    and detention centres that are substantially affected by overcrowding following the large counter-insurgency operations.

    2. Project information

    The RAP project has an overall objective of mitigating the effects of armed conflict by empowering civilians to better protect themselves during armed conflict and improve conditions for conflict affected people, prisoners and detainees across Iraq. This will be achieved by improving the food security, hygiene, health and general conditions, including the essential sanitary condition of the conflict affected people in the newly retaken areas and those who are in detention centers as well as to improve the protection and preparedness of civilians living in the conflict areas from the threats of armed conflicts.

    The RAP project is expected to reach some 20,750 direct beneficiaries with the following results:

    • Rapid assessment in West Mosul conducted.

    • Improved community resilience and strengthen the capacity of civilians to protect themselves in the face of armed conflict.

    • Surveyed explosive hazardous areas and defined its scope and impact on population in affected communities in Ninewa Governorate.

    • Prisoners in 16 prisons and detentions centres in Iraq have improved personal hygiene, health and general conditions, including the essential sanitary and other basic structures.

    The project will continue until end February 2019.

    3. Purpose and scope of work

    The purpose of this consultancy is to monitor RAP project activities and provide evidence-based information and data on implementation, namely progress and results achieved against plans, experienced bottlenecks or constraints, and quality of implemented activities.

    It is expected that the information collected during monitoring activities will be quickly and easily retrievable by NPA and its local partners for analysis and action. The information and data should be made available by means of technology and that it contains additional media as requested. Therefore, technology supported solutions will be used for faster collection, sharing and packaging of data.

    As a result of putting in place such a monitoring system NPA expects to be able to make faster, well informed planning decisions regarding its ongoing activities. In order to address the above-mentioned objective, the consultancy will include, but not be limited to, any of the following monitoring related activities:

    • Consult with NPA project team, NPA’s partner and authorities in order to verify status and location of implemented activities.

    • Collect required information and data with key informants at project selected locations and service provision facilities (e.g. centres, prisons, communities, etc.)

    • Conduct beneficiary satisfaction assessments in targeted locations and document their opinions about their participation in the projects, the quality of services- e.g. training participants, items users, etc.

    • Document and report on delivery of NPA’s inputs (e.g. supplies, financial, material or human resources) and inform about any gaps observed during the field visits.

    • Highlight and document the constraints in project implementation and how they have been resolved.

    • Provide documented evidence, as much as permitted and authorised by local authorities, of facilities visited.

    • Prepare and submit reports to NPA with results of monitoring activities.

    4. Methodology

    • The consultant is expected to share monthly inception report. This report should contain a recommended monitoring work plan outlining the methodology to be used, indicators, timeline of planned monitoring visits, data collection tools- i.e. checklists, report outline, budget, team, etc. The monitoring work plan will include review of key program documents, reports from the implementing partners, discussion with program staff, and field data collection. The proposed monitoring work plan will be discussed and finalized with the MEAL and Project teams.

    • The consultant will then conduct the agreed monitoring visits, in order to collect the data and information required. In between monitoring visits, NPA might require additional monitoring information, and will communicate to the consultant about required changes. As mentioned in the previous point, timeliness and efficiency are key in the process and digital systems for data collection, cleaning, storage and dissemination will be used. Such systems are recommended not only for faster data collection and dissemination as well as sharing and transfer of survey forms and data collection tools.

    • At the end of each monitoring activity the consultant will submit the data and information collected to NPA and prepare a brief monitoring report highlighting major findings in a digital format, packaged and formatted in accordance to NPA’s requirements.

    5. Deliverables and Reporting Requirements

    For each assignment the consultant will be expected to deliver the following:

    · Monthly inception report containing monitoring work plan.

    · All data collected in monitoring visits uploaded to an NPA designated location / server.

    · Data collection tools produced (survey forms, interview guidelines, etc.) in digital format, packaged and formatted in accordance to NPA’s requirements.

    · Monitoring visit reports in digital format, packaged and formatted in accordance to NPA’s requirements, indicating programs monitored key findings and, if requested, recommend or suggest follow up actions.

    · Number of assignments carried out.

    · Progress of monitoring visits (number of visits made according to plans, delays, etc.).

    · Data gathered from the monitoring visits.

    · Any other relevant issues or constraints identified during monitoring visits.

    6. Monitoring Ethics

    Due to the dynamic situation in which NPA and its partners operate, as well as the potentially life threatening nature of the issues involved, it is essential that the consultant adhere to strict ethical and security guidelines. The consultant will only be considered where the ethics and appropriate protocols are embedded into their organisational or private consultancy profile. The consultants have to demonstrate they are keenly aware of particular ethical and security issues that arise from working in this specific environment, including protection of local communities and the need for vigilant data handling and management.

    7. Location and Duration

    The work is to be carried out in nine governorates. The duration of the assignment will be from August 2018 through February 2019. The contract may also be modified upon agreement of the two parties.
