- Closing on 1st November, 2021
World Vision Australia (WVA) is seeking a consultant/ firm to undertake an internal evaluation of the AHP Disaster READY program phase I to identify impacts of the program and provide recommendations for the next phase.
The Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) is a five-year (2017-2022) partnership between the Australian Government (the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, DFAT) and six Australian NGOs. DFAT established a Support Unit to provide coordination, administration, grants management, and support for monitoring, evaluation and learning and communications for the AHP including Disaster READY. The Australian Humanitarian Partnership Support Unit (AHPSU) is managed by Alinea-Whitelum group.
The objective of Disaster READY is to strengthen local humanitarian capability and preparedness in the Pacific and Timor-Leste so that communities are better able to respond to and recover from rapid- and slow-onset disasters.
The AHP Disaster READY phase 1 will finish at the end of June 2022. A second phase (Phase 2) is expected to commence in July 2022, with the re-design process commencing in January 2022.
World Vision Australia (WVA) is one of the six lead agencies implementing the AHP Disaster READY Program which is being implemented across five Pacific Island countries, being Fiji, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste. Partners which are part of WVA’s led consortium are: The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), CBM Australia, Habitat for Humanity Australia (HfHA) and Field Ready. WVA has also engaged Humanitarian Advisory Group (HAG) to undertake a strategic research initiative as part of Disaster READY on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation integration at the community level.
The purpose of this internal evaluation is primarily to assess the impact of WVA’s consortium on the AHP Disaster READY program in order to:
Consolidate Learning from AHP Disaster READY Phase 1
Develop recommendations to inform the design of AHP Disaster READY 2.0
It is expected that findings from this evaluation will also inform WVA’s work on disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and broader resilience building in the Pacific.
Candidates are invited to submit technical and financial proposals by Monday 1st November 2021. Please refer to the Terms of Reference (ToR) attached for details on the Project objectives, scope and expected methodology, available budget and instructions to the bidders and selection criteria, deliverables and timeframe of the evaluation.
