Purpose of the Consultancy

The purpose of the End-of-Program Evaluation is primarily for learning and generating knowledge. The output of the consultancy will be used to communicate both internally and externally what has been learned from the emergency program implementation with the intent to inform and improve future humanitarian program design; the “generating knowledge” aspect acknowledges the partnership model applied in this program and seeks new learning and knowledge around this model to contribute to CARE and the wider humanitarian sector’s advancement towards locally-led emergency response. This is important because the partners have a collective interest in understanding the achievements of the program, learning about the strengths on which to build, and building wider awareness of this specific type of partnership modality.
