CARE INTERNATIONAL IN SOMALIA/SOMALILAND 

Terms of Reference (ToR) for Final Evaluation of Somalia Relief and Recovery Program-SRRP  

Introduction  

CARE International in Somalia/Somaliland is looking for an external consultant to carry out an end-line evaluation assessment for the Somalia Relief and Recovery Program-SRRP. The main purpose of engaging the external consultant is to assess the overall project performance and the achievement realized against the program indicators and objectives. In addition, the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the program will be measured in light of the situation at baseline. The evaluation report will identify best practices and key lessons in technical aspects as well as the program management approach to facilitate continued learning and improvement of humanitarian emergency response. 

This end-line study is a performance evaluation that adopts a non-experimental design for simple pre-post comparison of results using a mixed-methods involving both quantitative and qualitative data. Data collection will involve a quantitative beneficiary household survey; document reviews, beneficiary and stakeholder interviews. A comparative analysis approach will be used to report on project achievements for selected indicator values. Quantitative household survey will be conducted through structured questionnaire, with relevant and appropriate questions, aimed at producing summary statistics. The quantitative household survey will be complemented by qualitative methods that will be conducted alongside the household survey in the form of key informant interviews (KII) and Focus group discussions (FGD) 

About the Project  

Repeated climate shocks, continued conflict, and protracted displacement mean that Somalia remains one of the most prolonged humanitarian crises in the world. Over 4.2 million people, including 2.5 million children were estimated to need humanitarian assistance and protection in 20191. Significant displacement and destitution driven by the 2016/17 drought and protracted conflict have left more than 1.5 million people across Somalia facing acute food insecurity2 through June 2019 with 903,100 children under the age of five are likely to be malnourished in 2019 including 138,200 who are likely to be severely malnourished3. Women and children represented the majority of the 2.6 million people displaced across the country; including over 1 million who were displaced in 2018 alone4. Discrimination and exclusion of women, girls, and socially marginalized groups persist; worsened the level of acute humanitarian needs.   

Between February and April 2019, authorities in Somaliland, Puntland and Galmudug issued alerts and appealed for immediate humanitarian assistance to drought-affected communities. An estimated 525,000 people in these regions are in IPC Phases 3 and 4. Displaced women and girls, in particular, were at risk of domestic violence as well as rape and sexual abuse by armed civilians, government forces, and militia members.  

In response to the aforementioned needs and based on key needs identified by CARE assessments and corroborated by reports from the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU), the Famine Early Warning System Network (FEWSNET), local partners, and government authorities, CARE proposed to improve access to safe water and hygiene to drought-affected communities, provide temporary employment opportunities, deliver treatment services for acutely malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women, basic health services, and protection services. The project also aims at improving coordination through Somalia NGO consortium to concert and coordinate efforts to adequately address the recurrent humanitarian challenges in Somalia. The Somalia Relief and Recovery Project-SRRP aimed to address the most urgent and basic needs of affected communities in Bari, Galgadud, Lower Juba, Mudug, Sanaag, Hiran, and Sool regions which have been severely affected by the current drought crisis.   

During the implementation of the project, Somalia experienced a triple crisis viz, the COVID19 pandemic, Desert Locusts and Gu’ floods which disturbed the food security situation of the population in project targeted areas. The project responded to Gu floods in Puntland and Hiran where NFIs were distributed, boreholes were rehabilitated, water tracking was carried out and hygiene promotion activities were implemented. The project realigned some of the activities with the country office COVID19 response where the work hygiene promoters and GBV focal point were doing was aligned with the Risk Communication and Community Mapping-RCCE. In addition, other key services including Health, Nutrition and Wash was reprogramed to respond the emergent needs of the beneficiaries as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. 

This 12-month project was built on the achievements of the 2018 – 2019 USAID/OFDA-funded program. The project specifically targeted IDPs, pastoralists, returnees and vulnerable groups of host communities prioritizing women-headed households, persons living with disability, the elderly, and adolescent girls. USAID/OFDA-funded activities were complemented with funding from USAID/FFP, GAC, UNOCHA, WFP and UNICEF in the program areas.
