National Evaluation Consultant for Preparation of a National Case Study for Review of National Evaluation Systems and Capacities for Evaluating Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, they  work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

Background

The regional Review of National Evaluation Systems and Capacities for Evaluating Progress Towards the SDGs aims to foster peer-to-peer learning among key stakeholders in the region in relation to evaluation and the SDGs, trigger interest in a regional State of Evaluation report, and inform global and national evaluation capacity guidance.

The proposed case study is part of Phase 2 of an initiative that started in 2017 in five other countries (Myanmar, Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand), and it will serve as inputs to a regional synthesis report on emerging good practices. This will be accomplished by using the case studies and regional synthesis to showcase existing national evaluation champions and emerging country practices in the region, distil key success factors, trends, and lessons, and identify areas that other countries in the region should prioritize.

Qualification and specialized knowledge/experience required for the assignment:

The national evaluation consultant must meet the following qualifications requirements:

  • At least a Master’s degree in social development, public policy, or related field relevant to sustainable development and evaluation;
  • Minimum of ten years of experience in evaluation-related work;
  • Experience in national country planning and evaluation systems;
  • Evaluation skills, including conducting interviews, focus group discussions, desk research, qualitative and quantitative analysis;
  • Proven communication, facilitation, and writing skills; and
  • Excellent command of English and Myanmar in both oral and in writing.

UNICEF is an equal opportunity organisation which welcomes applications from qualified professionals. As they are committed to achieving diversity in terms of gender, we wish to encourage qualified women, with skills relevant to the range of qualifications required for this assignment, to apply.
