UnitingWorld is seeking an experienced external evaluation consultant to conduct an end of project evaluation for the Theology of Disaster Resilience in a Changing Climate project. This work is located in Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.

Project Background:
UnitingWorld is the global partnerships arm of the Uniting Church in Australia and has been a member of CAN DO since its inception. UnitingWorld drives collaboration with the global church, addressing the causes and consequences of poverty, injustice and violence.

The CAN DO (Church Agencies Network – Disaster Operations) consortium was formed in 2016 in the interests of collaboration and coordination in the humanitarian sector to enhance community resilience to disaster and conflict. UnitingWorld is one of eight member churches in the CAN DO consortium.

CAN DO is a partner in the Disaster Ready project, funded by the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP), and has received USD 40 million in funding over 4.5 years for disaster reduction program work in the Pacific region in its ‘Disaster Ready’ component. The Theology of Disaster Resilience in a Changing Climate (TDRCC) is a small part of the Disaster Ready project, which focuses on building capacity to manage disaster risk in the four Pacific Countries of PNG, Fiji, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands. UnitingWorld is the technical lead in this area.

Purpose of the Evaluation:

This evaluation is both for learning (summative), and to feed into future design (formative).

  • Measure progress towards Project Outcomes
  • Understand if the program is doing what it set out to do
  • Determine lessons learnt at country and regional levels – the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges
  • Make recommendations for changes in approach for the re-design of Disaster Ready 2.

Deliverables:

  • A detailed evaluation plan (after consultation) incl methodology and budget
  • A presentation demonstrating early findings

  • Draft report/s for the 4 countries
