Consultancy: Strategic Evaluation of Plan International Australia’s Resilience Programming

About Plan International

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.

About the consultancy

We are looking for a consultant to conduct a strategic evaluation of resilience programming across Plan International Australia’s (PIA’s) programming portfolio. The purpose of the evaluation is to understand the extent to which Plan International’s Resilience Framework is currently applied in PIA’s program portfolio and the results of its application, as well as to identify potential approaches to improving its use.

The evaluation is guided by Key Evaluation Questions (KEQs) outlined in the attached ToR. The final methodology and sampling approach will be agreed between the consultant and PIA and will involve both secondary data sources and remote primary data collection. The evaluation will include all five pathways in the Resilience Framework and PIA’s program portfolio as a whole, although some specific aspects of the evaluation may focus on selected resilience pathways, projects or thematic areas.

The consultancy is expected to require 20 days of work spread across June, July and August 2024.

Expected deliverables

• Draft and final evaluation plan, including evaluation matrix, methodology and data collection tools
• Online reflection or sense-making session
• Draft and final evaluation report
• 1-page visual document summarising results

Skills and experience

• 5+ years of evaluation experience, preferably in international development.
• Experience in conducting strategic evaluations, thematic evaluations and/ or meta-evaluations.
• Expertise in climate change, resilience or other relevant thematic areas, in an international development context.
• Familiarity with work around localisation in aid/ development in the Australian aid sector and international contexts.
• Understanding of the core concepts of gender transformative change in the context of international development programming.
• Excellent qualitative data analysis skills and ability to triangulate qualitative and quantitative data sources
• Skilled in delivering clear and succinct evaluation reports and presenting data in visually interesting ways.

Contract rate: AU$1,000-$1,200 per day (for a maximum 20 days, around $20,000-25,000 total contract term).
