Monitoring and Evaluation Consultant

Category: Individual Consultant Contract

Duty Station: UNFPA Nepal Country Office, Kathmandu

Deadline: Monday, 11 January 2021 by 5.00 pm Nepal time

About this position:
UNFPA Nepal seeks to recruits an M&E Consultant for a period of 11 months (Feb. to Dec. 2021) on a full time basis to support the M&E related functions of the CSE project in particular and SRH outcome in general.

Background: 
UNFPA works with the Government of Nepal and other partners to implement a Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programme that meets the international technical standards. UNFPA advocates for policies on, and investments in, CSE, both in and out of schools; strengthening teacher’s knowledge and capacities on delivery of quality CSE; and improving young people’s access to CSE. The Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has funded the CSE project which is implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) and its respective division/unit and through various implementing partners.

About the CSE Project:
The CSE project commenced in March 2016; it aimed to ensure that young people have adequate information and knowledge about CSE to enable them to make informed decisions about their own sexual and reproductive health as well as to develop their self-esteem and life skills. Phase I focused on policy advocacy for effective CSE integration, development of teacher’s training and resource materials, and training of teachers. In addition, Adolescents Friendly Information Corners (AFICs) were established in the working districts for young people’s increased access to CSE information, with linkage with certified Adolescents Friendly Service Sites (AFHS) supported by UNFPA. Currently, UNFPA is implementing the third phase of the CSE Project, that is, ‘Preventing Gender Based Violence through the Expansion of Comprehensive Sexuality Education’. The project is for five years’ period, and started in August 2020. This project is closely linked with other initiatives supported by UNFPA and a targeted expansion of the project interventions is planned. Hence, the shift in the Theory of Change and revision of the M&E framework requires establishing a robust M&E system for regular collection of data, monitoring, and reporting for the CSE project results.

Eligibility: Bachelor's degree in Public Health, Statistics, Population, Demography or related discipline is required. Five years of relevant experience in monitoring and evaluation; prior experience in Result Based Management and M&E is preferred. Excellent computer knowledge and skills. Knowledge and skills in data management and data analysis. Advanced knowledge of spreadsheet preferred. Excellent organizations skills, attention to detail, precision, and accuracy. Familiarity with the UN system will be an advantage.
