Background of NGO/CSO support project
UNDP implements NGOs/CSOs capacity support project (NCCSP) since June 2022. The Project aims to support operational NGOs with a view toward enhancing their basic service delivery, by enhancing the capacity of non-governmental implementation partners to deliver quality basic services to the most vulnerable people in the communities. UNDP will implement the project with the general funding by the World Bank (WB) acting as the administrator of the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF). The Project will build capacity for a total of 400 NGOs and CSOs across the eight regions and 34 provinces of Afghanistan. The implementation period is planned for 24 months. UNDP set up Project Management Unit (PMU) for implementation of the Project.
The Midterm Evaluation (MTE) aims to inform UNDP Afghanistan and its partners of lessons learned, results achieved and areas for improvements. The MID-TERM EVALUATION will draw out progress toward project deliverables, identify gaps in programming, and any course correction required for the current implementation process as well as for future programming. Furthermore, the findings of MID-TERM EVALUATION will inform the future designing of UNDP’s work. The MID-TERM EVALUATION will be able to produce valuable lessons and experiences, providing useful findings to the other relevant projects and various initiatives organized by UNDP Afghanistan and other Country Offices (COs) globally. MID-TERM EVALUATION is expected to produce a report on the achievements of the NCCSP project and success stories on the project, which will be published on UNDP website.
The Consultant will work under the direct supervision of the NGO/CSO Support Project Manager. He/she will work in close communication with the national evaluation consultant and NCCSP M&E Specialist.
Duties and Responsibilities
This mid-term evaluation will assess the NCCSP project progress against the Project Document, targets stipulated in the Results Framework and the achieved results from 1 July 2022 to 31 June 2024 and propose recommendation which will inform and help improving the current implementation of the project and designing any future interventions. The mid-term evaluation will be based on a desk review of project related documents and in-depth interviews and surveys as outlined in the methodology section. The evaluation will also intend to document achievements, good practices, success cases, lessons learned and experiences. Based on the achievements to the date, the mid-term evaluation will provide forward looking programmatic recommendations for the project’s next months, using the OECD/DAC evaluation criteria on (a) relevance; (b) effectiveness; (c) efficiency; (d) sustainability; (e) impact; and (f) coherence. It will also focus importantly on the cross-cutting issues such as gender equality, human right based approach and do-no-harm.
The mid-term evaluation will geographically focus on the provinces and zones that the NCCSP project is being implemented. NCCSP covers all the national NGOs and CSOs across eight regions and 34 provinces of Afghanistan. The beneficiaries will primarily be the NGOs, CSOs, employees who receive trainings and the local stakeholders including INGOs who will be approached for the betterment of the national coordination platforms.
The evaluation should cover the following cross-cutting themes: (a) Rights-Based Approach (RBA); (b) protection mainstreaming; (c) disability inclusion; (d) gender mainstreaming; (e) environmental sensitivity and sustainability; and (f) accountability to affected populations (AAP). All the above-mentioned themes have an equal priority to the UNDP that should be taken into account in this evaluation and the data collection process should be able to equally and effectively address these cross-cutting themes.
The evaluation may require field visits and Key Informant Interviews (KII) with UNDP and World Bank staff, and the local stakeholders covering a representative number out the 34 provinces where NCCSP has a footprint of delivering capacity building activities. It may also require direct observation of project sites where NCCSP supported NGOs and CSO or indirectly support the local communities through provision of economic and livelihood support
