Australian Red Cross
Deadline: 5.00pm AEST Wednesday 12 June 2019
Australian Red Cross seeks Expressions of Interest to conduct an independent evaluation of our Drought Program. The evaluation is intended to help Red Cross Emergency Services better understand how we can support communities impacted by slow-onset disasters such as drought.
The evaluation will consider what works in our current recovery program, and what could be improved on, to strengthen the evidence base for future Red Cross work in communities impacted by a changing climate.
Evaluate a two-year drought program focused on specific locations in four states. The objectives of the evaluation are to:
- Assess the relevance, appropriateness and effectiveness of Red Cross’s recovery work to communities affected by the current drought
- Assess progress towards outcomes as outlined in the Theory of Change
- Capture learning and provide recommendations to improve the program, and future recovery programs that focus on slow-onset disasters
- Meet our contractual obligations to our funder, the BHP Foundation.
You will have demonstrated experience conducting program evaluations, preferably in disaster-affected communities. You will have demonstrated experience with MEL frameworks and approaches including Theory of Change and participatory approaches. You will have demonstrated knowledge and experience of disaster resilience and recovery work, and of working with remote/regional communities. You will have an understanding and awareness of factors affecting the operation of Not for Profit Organisations, and the use of volunteers in service provision.
The Evaluation Brief contains the evaluation scope and selection criteria, which must be addressed.
