Country: South Sudan
Organization: Norwegian People’s Aid
Closing date: 2 May 2022

INTRODUCTION:

Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) South Sudan is an International Non-Governmental Organization involved in humanitarian, relief and long-term development cooperation in South Sudan. NPA has worked in South Sudan since 1986 and currently runs three programmes: Civil Society Development, Rural Development, and Emergency Response. The Urban Safety Nets (USN) Programme funded by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) commenced on 1st May 2021 and is scheduled to end on 30th April 20222. The USN programme which is under NPA’s Emergency Response Programme (ERP) is being implemented in Rumbek Center County in Lakes State. The target locations include Nyot tik Angui, Nyangakot, PDU & Abubu Centre of Rumbek Town. The project seeks to address immediate food security needs through Cash Based Transfers (CBT) and support resilience building by transferring knowledge and skills to improve the livelihoods of vulnerable urban residents in Rumbek Centre County of Lakes State.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:

Background: The USN project seeks to address immediate food security needs with cash-based transfers and support resilience building by transferring knowledge and skills that will improve the livelihoods of vulnerable urban residents. The CBT component aimed to place vulnerable households on accelerated path to early recovery and to address the long-term food insecurity challenges in a sustainable manner. The project also aimed to enhance the capacity of youth including vulnerable girls and young women through vocational skills training and Income Generating Activities (IGA). To enhance sustainability of the vocational skills training and IGAs, graduates who completed the various market-led courses were provided with start-up kits support to enable them start various businesses in Rumbek Town or surrounding areas. Further, the project provided trainings to targeted vulnerable smallholder farmers to improve their knowledge, attitude and practices on agricultural production, nutrition, post-harvest handling and processing, value addition, and marketing. The project supported vulnerable households to construct and maintain community access roads and in return, the target households received cash transfers. By focusing on improved food security through cash transfers, vocational skills training, and awareness raising on hygiene, nutrition, conflict sensitivity and post-harvest handling management under vegetable crop production and improving market access through community road maintenance, the USN programme sought to address the most critical challenges faced by target population. The livelihoods of the targeted beneficiary communities remain fragile and vulnerable due to a combination of man-made and natural shocks that continue to undermine household food security and erode gains that were made through previous food security interventions. Thus, through the USN Programme, NPA with support from WFP, sought to contribute towards enhanced community resilience to shocks and stressors by improving food security and increasing access to livelihood opportunities in Rumbek town of Lakes State.

Overall Objective: The primary goal of the USN Programme was to address immediate food security needs with cash-based transfers and support resilience building by transferring knowledge and skills that will improve the livelihoods of vulnerable urban residents.

Specific Objective: The specific objective of this intervention was to enhance community resilience to shocks and stressors by improving food security and increasing access to livelihood opportunities for vulnerable populations in Nyot tik Angui, Nyangakot, PDU & Abubu of Rumbek Town, Lakes State.

PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT:

The main purpose of this evaluation is to assess the extent to which the USN programme delivered on the planned outputs and outcomes as well as progress towards achievements of the respective objectives and indicators, while highlighting enabling factors and challenges encountered. The evaluation also seeks to render accountability to beneficiaries, stakeholders, NPA and WFP.

The specific objectives of this evaluation include:

  1. To assess the project’s performance and achievements vis-à-vis the project’s overall objectives and ascertain the impact of the project amongst the target beneficiaries.
  2. To generate lessons learned from the implementation of the project activities that will be useful during implementation of similar projects.

The evaluation is expected to provide data on the performance of project interventions as per the DAC Criteria (Relevance, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Impact and Sustainability). The findings and recommendations will contribute to a learning process which will enable the NPA, the donor- WFP and other project stakeholders (line ministries and its directorates) and other partners (NGO/ UN Agencies) to draw lessons in order to improve the quality of service provision to target communities. The findings of the evaluation will also inform NPA on the effectiveness of beneficiary accountability system and mechanisms used during the project implementation.

METHODOLOGY:

The consultant will however provide leadership and bear responsibility for the process, the findings, the recommendations and the content of the final report. The evaluation methods will mainly focus on generating quantitative and qualitative data through literature review of relevant reports from reliable and trusted sources/ projects documents, household interviews, key informant interviews (KII) and focus group discussion (FGD). All the data collected through this evaluation assessment should be disaggregated by Age, Gender and Diversity (AGD). The design and implementation of this evaluation must ensure that, principles of gender equality, inclusion and non-discrimination are considered and acted upon throughout, and that the meaningful participation of the most vulnerable groups and other key stakeholders is promoted in the design and implementation processes.
