It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The Women’s Leadership and Political Participation Project, (WLPP) (Wanawake Wanaweza) Phase II (2017-2021) builds on Phase I (2014 – 2017), promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women as per UN Women’s global mandate and supports the Government of Tanzania as a Member State to the United Nations to implement international standards, providing suitable technical and financial assistance. The second phase of the project aims at achieving the overarching goal/impact “Women lead and participate in decision-making at all levels”.

Objectives of the Assignment
UN Women Tanzania is planning to conduct the end of project Evaluation of the Women‘s Leadership and Political Participation, (WLPP) Wanawake Wanaweza II. To that end, UN Women is seeking to hire a qualified National Consultant, to be paired with an international Consultant who will lead the evaluation.
The evaluation will be conducted according to the Development Assistance Committee of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD/DAC) criteria on relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability. In 2019, the OECD revised the DAC evaluation criteria and introduced an additional standard around “coherence” to the initial 5 criteria. The evaluation will include the coherence criteria and ask questions around the compatibility of the programme with other interventions in the country and potential duplication of efforts in this area.
Specific Objectives of the End Projection Evaluation:
The Main Clients of the Evaluation are:

Under the direct supervision of UN Women Programme Specialist in Tanzania Country office, with technical support from the Program Specialist - Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation in Tanzania Country office. The National Consultant will be responsible for supporting the International Consultant to complete the following specific tasks:
To achieve these requirements, the Evaluators (international consultant and national consultant) are expected to produce these deliverables:
Conduct the following Workshops during the assignment:
Produce the following documentation:
Furthermore, the final evaluation report and evaluation management responses will be publicly disclosed in the UNW GATE system.
The Evaluators will assess the design of the Wanawake Wanaweza II project document 2017-2021, including the corresponding Development Results Framework, Organizational Effectiveness Framework, Monitoring, Evaluation and Risk Analysis Matrix. The evaluation will analyze the coherence of processes and strategies in place and provide early indications of achievements at the output levels of results. The evaluators will be responsible for developing the evaluation methodology and work plan in close consultation with the Evaluation Reference Group (see below) and the Regional Evaluation Specialist.
The findings of the evaluation process will inform the development of a new Project Document (phase 3) to ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political and public life and a Publication on Best Practices that can be replicated and or up scaled outside the current project sites and crops for lessons and experience sharing.
Key questions to be addressed include:
Evaluation Process and Methodology
The evaluation will follow the gender equality and human rights approaches, and it will be conducted according to the UN Women Evaluation Policy and UNEG Norms and Standards, accessible at http://www.unwomen.org/ about-us/accountability/evaluation/. The details about the gender and human rights responsive evaluation approaches are outlined in the UNW Evaluation Handbook “How to manage gender-responsive Evaluation” and in the UNEG Guidance “Integrating Human Rights and Gender Equality in Evaluation.” The evaluation will apply the principles outlined in the above references.
The management arrangements for the evaluation will ensure the effective participation and engagement of programme stakeholders. The Evaluators will collect secondary data from desk review and verify them with primary data from field visits, interviews, and workshop. During the process of data gathering, the Evaluators will compare, validate, and triangulate data of different sources (programme staff, programme implementing partners and beneficiaries) and different methodologies (desk review, site visits and interviews). All data collected should be sex-disaggregated and different needs of women and men should be considered. A mixed-methods approach will include qualitative and quantitative methods and will seek to offer diverse perspectives to the evaluation and promote the inclusion of different groups of stakeholders. Stakeholder inclusion will help to address the issue of biases such as gender bias, distance bias (favoring the more accessible), class bias, power bias etc. It will also help to identify groups that may have been negatively affected by the programme. The methods should include a wide range of data sources e.g. programme documents, work plans, progress and monitoring reports, institutional information systems, financial records, as well as KIIs and FGDs with key stakeholders. The Evaluators are expected to develop a sampling frame and specify how it will address the diversity of stakeholders and potential limitations of the sample. Due to possible travel restrictions, it is expected that the methods include creative options for virtual and online participation as well as data collection.
The Evaluators will work in close consultation with the Evaluation Reference Group which will help to identify the key stakeholders to be interviewed. The stakeholders will include representatives from Government Ministries, implementing partners including the women caucuses of Parliament and ZHoR, donors, UNDAP II Outcome Group members, CSOs, beneficiaries, community-based organizations, so that their engagement and involvement in the evaluation process can be arranged in a timely manner. The participation of stakeholders will enhance the credibility and ultimately ownership of the evaluation findings. Once finalized the evaluation report will be quality-assessed based on the UN Women Global Evaluation Reports Assessment and Analysis System (GERAAS). GERAAS standards and GERAAS rating matrix are available at http://www.unwomen.org/en/ aboutus/evaluation/decentralized-evaluations.
The Evaluators are expected to follow the Code of Conduct for Evaluation in the UN system and sign the UN Women Evaluation Consultants Agreement Form accordingly prior to commencing work.
Stakeholder participation is fundamental to UN Women programme evaluations. The Evaluators are expected to conduct a participatory evaluation by providing for a meaningful involvement by project partners, beneficiaries, and other interested parties. Stakeholder participation is to be an integral component of evaluation design and planning; information collection; the development of findings; evaluation reporting; and results dissemination.
