Description of project

UNICEF West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO) contracted 2 DARA consultants to conduct a multi-country evaluation study of its emergency preparedness and response (EPR) and conflict/disaster risk reduction (C/DRR) capacity development and institutionalization efforts in the education sector.T he proposed evaluation study has 4 objectives:
1. To assess the adequacy, effectiveness and sustainability of the regional (ToT) and national (Roll-out) EPR/DRR capacity development activities (with a focus on outcomes and impact).
2. To assess how the capacity development strategy has contributed to the institutionalization of EPR and DRR at national/education sector level (national policy and planning) and at sub-national level (as applicable).
3. To identify and analyze any other initiatives at the CO level which have contributed to enhanced EPR and DRR in the education sector.
4. To identify and recommend measures to address capacity gaps and institutionalization failures to inform future EPR/DRR capacity in WCAR and develop a clear road map and logical framework for the way forward.
