Final Evaluation Consultant - Climate resilient agriculture and communities - Christian Aid

On behalf of the Zaman Lebidi project, Christian Aid wishes to invite applications to conduct the Final Evaluation of their 3-year project that has sought to improve the resilience of vulnerable households in Burkina Faso to climate variability and disasters.

The evaluation should be conducted in January and February 2018 (with some planning in December 2017), with the final report due 25th February 2018. It is expected sometime in Burkina Faso will be required in January 2018 to conduct qualitative data collection.

Applications should be in English and sent to Richard Ponsford > with the subject title “Application for Zaman Lebedi Final Evaluation”.
Approximate budget for the evaluation is in the range of £25,000-30,000.

The deadline for applications is 5 November 2017, 1130pm GMT. We expect to let applicants know the initial decision by 10 November 2017 with any required interviews conducted between 14-17 November (these are expected to be via skype).

Background information:
The Zaman Lebidi project aimed to build the capacity of 1,342,689 people in Burkina Faso to find transformational solutions to climate variability and disasters through access to climate forecasting, behavioural change & sharing skills & technology. The project had a budget of £7,321,289 and was implemented from January 2015 and will conclude at the end of December 2017.

Additional information on the project is available under the Zaman Ledidi link of the BRACED programme webpage -

The aim of the final evaluation is to gather and analyse information about what has enabled the achievement of the project’s priority outcomes, what has hindered their achievement and what learning could be used in future projects. Specifically, this should help us to understand “How, where, when and why do interventions focused on building resilience to climate variability work, and what can be learned”.

The evaluation will examine the outcomes achieved, linking these to the “activity packages” implemented by the project (such as climate information, soil conservation, lowland development), and any synergies between these.

In order to understand what worked well (or is in need of improvement), and why, we want the final evaluation to examine the mechanisms through which these activity packages are working. It also needs to investigate the way that the project context shapes these activities and outcomes. This is often called a Realist approach to evaluation and is primarily qualitative in nature.

Evaluation consultants will have access to all key project data, including the endline - baseline quantitative comparison of key outcomes.
