Consultancy role - East Africa Response Review
On 15 March 2017, the Disasters Emergency Committee launched an appeal for funds to support member agencies in responding to the extensive humanitarian needs in East Africa – specifically, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan.
At the time of posting, the DEC has raised over £50 million including £10 million UK Aid Match funding. Thirteen member agencies taking part in the appeal will spend DEC funds over a period of up to two years in Phase 1 (the first 6 months) and Phase 2 (the following 18 months) of the response.
An initial allocation of £33.5 million has been made to members. In order to support members’ activities, harness lessons and inform Phase 2 of the programme, the DEC Secretariat is commissioning a review of the East Africa response, to take place across end June/ July 2017.
Comprehensive Terms of Reference will be developed, but it is expected that the review will cover activities in all four countries, with a focus on Somalia and South Sudan. A final report should be delivered by no later than 4th August 2017.
Expressions of interest are invited from consultants by 24th April 2017.
