FINAL EXTERNAL EVALUATON OF ENHANCING GENDER INCLUSIVE SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECT (EGSD) – Sri Lanka
OXFAM is calling for request for proposals from qualified and experienced consultancy firms / individuals who are competent in conducting a survey for the above purpose.
Oxfam has been working in Sri Lanka for over three decades supporting the country through the continuous delivery of humanitarian and development programs. Following the evolution of the country’s development curve, Oxfam’s programme focus has shifted towards economic development, DRR and resilience, and gender equality programs. The underlining themes of all our work are good governance, gender equity and equality, climate change and access to rights.
The Enhancing Gender Inclusive Socio-Economic Development in Uva and Central Provinces (EGSD) project works in the Central (Nuwara Eliya) and Uva (Monaragala and Badulla) provinces and intends to contribute to increasing income levels and reducing poverty and inequality among rural and the estate communities in these the Central and Uva provinces, Sri Lanka. Oxfam, Save the Children International and LEADS jointly implement this project, funded by European Union.
The EGSD project is now in its’ final stage and approaching the closure and phasing out by February 2022. Considering the importance to assess whether the action has been successful in achieving its expected results, there is a need to undertake a comprehensive final evaluation to analyse the project’s performance. The final external evaluation (henceforth evaluation) is intended to assess whether the targets and outcomes have been achieved within the project timeframe and to get useful learnings from the implementation of the project. For this purpose, Oxfam is looking for a consultative firm or a research centre (henceforth provider) with relevant experience and expert skill in conducting the evaluation.
